The TV needs a couple minutes to intialize after the TV power cord is plugged in. The power buttons on the TV and the remote won't work during this short period of time, and the illumination LED won't light up right away. This is normal operation.

  1. On your supplied remote control, press the HOME button.
  2. Select gear Settings.
