Did you unzip and place BIN file on USB?
Yes sir i did extract the bin file and placed it on my USB, I tried it with a 8 GB USB Fat32.. Tried it on both USB 3 and USB 2 ports on TV.. It recognize my USB as a MEDIA PLAYER, but when i try to manually do software update from USB it shows the message " NO AVAILABLE UPDATE FILE , PLEASE INSERT USB DEVICE OR SD CARD WITH SOFTWARE PACKAGE"... I also tried to open the media player and open the bin file but it said I don't have any application to open it.

Try this.....found in older TCL pdf....
"Please save file ‘V8-xxxxxxx-LF1VXXX.bin’ at the root of the USB drive formatted in FAT32.
Put TV on standby.
Insert USB drive in ‘USB’ slot of the TV.
Press and maintain the power button of the TV until the front LED blinks.
TV will update SW automatically, and shows popup menu to inform the user is updating."

Repeat same until press and maintain the power button on TV (not remote !)....until the front LED is blinking.
As soon as it started blinking, you can release the button (take out your finger from the button).
TV will update SW automatically, and shows popup menu to inform the user about the ongoing update......
Upgrade will take some time around ~7 to 10 minutes.
Do not switch off, unplug the power cord or remove USB drive until upgrade is complete.
When reflashing is successful, TV should restart automatically after 5 minutes.
Remove the USB drive from the USB port.

Change TV......wait for 2021 models, but if you in hurry can buy also 2020 models.
You can't flash other TV models firmware.

hello.
I have the same problem for my tcl 55P2US. and I can not update with the firmware v8-s68at02-lf1v198. Could you help me install it I tried turning off and pressing the power button method but it didn't work, I also tried to manually access settings and updating the software using USB, but no update package was found even though my USB is recognized by the TV. I even tried the last procedure mentioned above and it does not work yet. Thank you for finding a solution.
