2. Here lately, sometimes I will turn the tv on and the led light below the screen will come on, but the screen won't. Then the led light turns off. On the third try the SONY log pops up and loads for a while, then the android tv introduction kicks in before I can use it. Again, any ideas what this could be.
Lastly, a quick stupid question. Various options on the menu use a left and right slider representing ON/OFF. Which direction is on, and which is off?
If anyone can help, thanks in advance! It sucks to spend so much on this set and have these annoying power problems.
I have had both of those problems since I bought the set and they continue since the last update. In the first instance, I have no idea what keeps turning the set on by itself. Someone mentioned a rogue HDMI connection, but the only HDMI connection I had was an Apple TV.
The rebooting is part of using Android is my guess. The other day it happened while I was changing channels on OTA TV. Not sure if random crashes will ever go away. If it happens repeatedly, you probably need to do a complete factory restore.

Also is pairing a bluetooth headset easy to do? I imagine I just need to pair my device via the bluetooth settings menu and then somehow select it as the source?
It looks like the video app doesnt work for USB, I connected my USB with a few videos on it and the video app does not recognize it, says no devices found.... what a bummer.
Pairing a BT A2DP device is very east to do. Put the device in pair mode, then go to the Home Settings menu under BT and select it from the menu and complete the pairing process. The audio source is automatically selected based on the TV input.
The video app also did not work for mine, but you need to confirm that your USB flash drive is formatted properly. I haven't had time to look into this, so you'll need to do a little research. I'd wipe it and format it as directed. Also, it may be very specific about the type of video files. As mv4 files are Apple, Android might not recognize them. Make sure they are in a recognized format.
The iPhone will NOT natively stream to the TV, but there are Apps that should via wifi. Again you'll need to do a little research, since it's not something I'm willing to do. If you want a native experience with AirPlay, you should buy an Apple TV, but wait until this Fall when they hopefully release the Apple TV 4K version. You will appreciate streaming from that without over taxing the TV's processor while you access TV system menus.
