Is already in build in TV....
Oh ok, mine shows differently to that. Is there anyway to show more info than just that or is that as good as I'm going to get?

Haven't had the TV for a week yet and I have only hooked the Xbox Series X to it and played Fortnite.

Got the whole [email protected] with all the bells and whistles no trouble, but when fortnight is set to run in 120fps the game is meant to change down to 1440p resolution but it still reads as 4K120, so not sure if the console is just forcing it to read as 4K and 120 FPS or if it's doubling the 60fps that the game says it's generating.

First good TV and Console with all the fancy stuff so still trying to figure it all out.

Appreciate the help and noob tolerance 😅

Hello there,

I was planning to buy tv for some time. First time the pick was C725 then there is C735. What are the differences between those two than C735 is I suppose newer model. (talking about 50inch models)

I am mainly interested in gaming, so 4k 120hz is top priority for me, then there's watching tv.

I tried to find some reviews between those two tv's but no luck. Also TCL website is trash when it comes to compare option. Showing different features for each tv.

Greetings to all, I have a 43c635 TV that is currently with firmware v477. I have searched for updates through the tv but it tells me there are no updates. However, I have seen that several updates have already come out from v481 on June 28 to v496 on August 25. I would like to ask you the following questions which I hope you can answer.
1) Generally how long after their release are the updates available using the TV's update function?
2) Could I load via USB directly the v496 firmware thus going directly from v477 to v496 or do I have to load first the v481 then v482, then v488 and finally the v496 firmware?
3) Is updating the firmware a procedure that can break the TV if something goes wrong? And if so, are there any procedures to recover the TV that I can do?
4) I have an annoying audio video synchronization problem in streaming apps, do you think upgrading from v477 to v496 can solve this problem or alternatively how can I solve this problem?
Thanks in advance to those who will help me.

Since the v496 update, the sound is not as loud as before the update.
Is there a way I can uninstall the latest update?

Sorry for the noob question, but can you teach me how? I also can't find previous versions on the TCL website for download.

Look for IMG file (R51MT05) in this thread....

I have the 55" c835 and updated to the latest firmware (469) and now local dimming doesn't work. I tried doing factory reset and now it doesn't even show local dimming in the settings... just local contrast and micro contrast... putting both of those on doesn't do much :(

Someone else in whirlpool forum with same model got same issue as me... anyone know how to fix? how do you open the service menu for c835?

just change your language settings. with English (USA) local dimming is changed to local contrast. WIth English (UK) wording is back to local dimming.

question, on my c635, I already disabled auto system updates.
But when it restarted, it still updated to the latest patch available which I am avoiding,

Now I am downgrading again to a previous patch.
What should I do to avoid auto-updating again?

Any way I can avoid this during initial setup?

Hi,
i just bought a 50C735 (updated to V496) to essentially play PC games.
I've got an RTX3090 + HDMI 2.1 certified cable but i can't manage to get 4k above 60Hz.
I use CRU to get [email protected] (144Hz = black screen).
TCL website : 2160P/120Hz 444 12bit, (2160P/144Hz 444 10bit)
Game Master mode only activate with my PS4 [email protected] (don't have PS5 BTW) but can not be use with Nvidia hdmi output.
Any tips to get at least [email protected] with this GPU?

Did you set in setting HDMI 1&2 to 2.1 (advanced or similar)?
Try also disable VRR...

    You download file by PC (Wndows OS) ?
    Did flashing ever start ?...blue screen with updating info.....
    Same thing happend to me when updating V501 message appeared instalation failed
    This is how i did the img flash:

    1. Format a USB Flash drive using FAT32.
    2. Download the zip file containing the software for your TV to your computer.
    3. Unzip/extract the software.
    4. Copy the software file to the root catalogue of the USB flash drive.
    5. Unplug the power cord to your TV.
    6. Insert the USB flash drive into the USB port on the back of the TV.
    7. Press and hold the power button on the TV, not the remote.
    8. While holding the button on the TV, plugin the power cord of the TV again.
    9. When the software install message appears on the TV, release the power button.
    10. Do not unplug the power cord during the software install. When the initial setup screen appears on the TV the software install is completed.

    I tried another file and another USB Stcik but TV doesnt go into the update mode at all. It seems to just double click in the back as it is about to start update.
    Try to unplug HDMI câble before updating. Same thing happend to me last night V501. Started the update all good but after 2/3 min install failed and tv stuck on boot loop TCL logo. Unplugged tv power and HDMI cable formated usb drive pasted the firmware V501 plugged the power and usb drive again pressed power button for 5 seconds TV started updating again! All good.

    Thanks for pic.. 👍 ...at the moment V440 IMG is only available.
    OTA versions is quite rare.
    How C935 perform ?
    Thanks for the info.

    It is a very nice tv, love the colour accuracy and brightness. Blacks are black, not much blooming that I have seen. Built in speakers are great. Coming from a Sony x90j which I found very dark picture wise. This tv is amazing for the price. Just can't figure out the vrr function with xbox series x, gives a 10 second no input signal screen every time a game starts and vrr is activated. Other than that...perfect
