    4. If the issue is still unresolved, follow these troubleshooting steps:
      • Turn on the TV.
      • Restart the TV.
      • If a device other than the TV and the Google Assistant compatible speaker is connected to the same router, disconnect that device to reduce the number of connected devices.
