What issues are solved by a software upgrade?


Every software update solves a different issue. A software update ensures that your TV is performing optimally in accordance with the latest technological developments.

To check if there is new software available for your TV, you have to check if the software version on the Philips support website is higher than the software version on your TV and update it if necessary.

Follow these procedures to check the current software version on your TV.

  1. Press the button on the remote control to access the home menu.
  2. Use the cursor buttons to select SETUP and press the 'OK' button to confirm.
  3. Select SOFTWARE SETTINGS and press the 'OK' button.  
  4. Select CURRENT SOFTWARE INFO and press the 'OK' button to display the current software version on your TV set.

Check the software version against the latest TV software on the Philips support website. Refer to the SOFTWARE & DRIVERS section.

  1. If the TV software version is lower than the version posted on the website, this means the software of your TV set needs to be upgraded.
  2. Follow the instructions in the user manual or readme file of the firmware upgrade on how to upgrade your software.
  3. Do not install a lower version of software than the current version installed on your product. Philips cannot be held liable or be made responsible for problems caused by a software downgrade.
