When the file is finished copying from the USB storage device, the update process starts and the POWER indicator on the TV begins flashing white with an update icon displayed on the screen.
After several minutes, the TV will turn off and then turn back on to complete the update.
WARNING! During the firmware installation process, do not remove the USB device, turn off the TV, or disconnect the TV from the power supply.
When the firmware update is complete, a message appears on the TV indicating the software update is complete.
After the update process completes, and the TV restarts, remove the USB device from the TV.
Check the current firmware version to confirm that the update has successfully installed.
If the version number is PKG6.2818.0070NAA, the firmware update was successful.
If the version number is not PKG6.2818.0070NAA, or if an error occurred during the software update, download and install the update again.

Press the POWER button on the TV to turn it off, and then back on, and then perform the installation process again.
Note: If the message No newer version of the TV software was found is displayed, your TV already has the newer firmware installed.
