  • An archive utility that supports the ZIP file format (for example, WinZip® for Microsoft® Windows®, or Stufflt® for Macintosh®)

Update the software

If the power goes off during the update, do not remove the USB storage device from the set. The update will continue when the power is restored.

If you see the message [No valid upgrade software found!], check that:

  • The software is meant for your set
  • The content is in the root directory of the USB storage device and the name is not changed

If the update fails, try again. If it fails again, please contact Philips Consumer Care for help.
