Hello, I am in trouble: I was stupid and tinkered with firmware, not only from another country, but also for the wrong model. I really need help finding an Update.img I can use specifically for my television model and region. I have searched and searched online and can't find any firmwares for the 40S330...
Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

I had a real similar problem with the 50s434. I grabbed v408 from the big thread, put it on a flash drive, and held the power button during boot to get it to flash it. The TV screen was still dark, but I could tell it was booting. At that point, I could plug the TV into my network, and even cast to it, but still no video. Next, I yanked the power cord, waited a few seconds, and then held the power button down for about 15 seconds with it still unplugged. The idea is that we're draining all the capacitors, so all the ram gets cleared. Finally, I plugged it in and the remote worked again, and everything came up.

Unfortunately this did not work for me. Do you have any other suggestions?
