Hi Everone, I am really in need of help here regarding MY TCL 50P6US.
It was stuck on TCL logo and when chatting with support they provided me with .pkg file to update via usb service port. I followed the process and it was on update screen and the power got cut off. Now the TV is not responding . I can just see the power button lit up and nothing else. It wont respond to any clicks. I tried to update again but its not responding as i cannot see anything on the screen. And unfortunately i dont have original receipt for warranty claim and stucked with completely fine but bricked TV.
If there is any solution or procedures to make it working again that would be great. Thanks in advance

Remove pen drive firstly, then switch on the tv. Tv will be functional.... Then after reboot your tv and insert pen drive and then flash the update..... It will take few minutes... Don't be panic....

I tried to do that multiple times with provided .pkg firmware from tcl but there is nothing showing in the tv. The tv is bricked and I cannot see anything on the screen. The onlything telling me the tv is on is the glowing white light on tv

Sure...... Now i am updating the version R579..... I will request you to please update in this head if any new update will come..🙏
The R579 version killed the HDR on all the native TV apps ( Netflix, Moviesanywhere, YouTube) but the HDR is enabled & working good when connected to external devices ( Roku, UHD Player, Firestick) through an AVR If anyone facing this similar issue please update in the post.

Hello guys, I am hoping you can help me. I just got a tcl tv and I am disappointed, because I can't return it back. I can't even access date and time to change them. They all write in Chinese, YouTube blocks my access to the tv when I try. The model is tcl l40e5800us
I think it is running Android 4.*. Can I upgrade this model? If not how can I access YouTube without Google blocking my access to the tv.

Hello together,

i think, i made a huge mistake. During the start of my TCL U65C7006 (while showing these android rings) i plugged the TV out because the booting took very very long and nothing happend.
Now, when the TV is plugged in, in starts immediately but only shows the TCL Logo.

Did I break it? Do you have any solution?

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi, yes probably you might need to do a fresh install of the firmware. Plug in the USB stick with the appropriate firmware that has an img boot file and not OTG file, with the TV in the standby mode press & hold the power button until the LED flashes and initiates the firmware to boot on the screen. Wait with patience for the installation to complete and start setting up your TV with the onscreen instructions. I am sure you will be able to find a boot file matching to your firmware in the forums. Good luck!

Thanks for the quick response!
I already search for a suitable firmware but the most links i found were "dead". Any tips where i should look exactly?

Next problem: The TV is never in standby. When i plug it in, it starts.. no chance to start in manually. :/

    Leaked TCL Android TV 8.0 before it is updated on TCL's own website, so if you have a TCL Android TV of model types Percee TV you can injoy Android 8.

    Please Note that you have to use USB Port 3 and Not USB Port 2 or you will Problem.

    (.........1drv.ms/u/s!AnbGbXJxdf9Bg4Uwth3AFXu8xksloA.......)


    Download the file and copy to a blank formatted USB Plug in the format USB drum 32

    1. Turn off the TV (power supply - unplug the power cord)
    2. Insert the USB stick in USB Port 3
    3. Press and hold the power button on the TV: n (not the remote control)
    4. Turn on the power to the TV (while pressing the power button)
    5. After approximately ten seconds, you see the upgrade message on the TV as soon as you see this, release the power switch.

    The TV will now be updated. Do not disconnect or press any buttons until you see the google welcome page. The update is now complete.

    the title is misleading, this is obviously not for all tcl (android) tv's.
