Firmware Installation Guide

Firmware is a software/program or set of instructions written/designed in a machine language that can run or command hardware. Here in this post we will discuss the LCD/LED TV Software/Firmware. How to install firmware and why we need this. Following are some points that when we need to install the software. After reading this post you will be able to flash the firmware easily.

  • New Board Installation as per your requirement

how to install firmware

What things are Necessary to install flash program or software:

  • USB Disk or Pen drive Formatted to FAT32
  • Required software/firmware/program/flash file/bin file etc
  • Always save/keep backup of old flash before installing new program/software

Please keep in mind when loading/installing firmware:

  • Check the size of software either it is a dump file or USB boot program
  • The dump file size is always the same as the size of a flash ic. For example, 4MB flash ic have a dump file of 4MB (4096KB)
  • And if the software is a USB upgrade then its size will be lesser than 4MB
  • The dump file or backup file can be loaded by a programmer or USB upgrade method in setting when the TV is working
  • Always use USB2 slot for firmware installation where available
  • Always use branded and empty FAT32 Pen drive
  • Firmware size of smart/android is more than 100 Mbs while non-smart software size will be 1Mb, 2Mb, 4Mb, 8Mb, 16Mb, etc
  • Always transfer bin files with some text files to Pen drive without any Folder or ZIP file
  • Always check the ROM/RAM capacity before loading firmware
  • Always check the Remote Control and Logo information before loading firmware
  • Do Not Turn Off during software installation.

Firmware/Bin Name:

  • The board manufacturer develops the software with a specific name for each board. Some examples are given below
  • Do not rename the original bin name for non-smart boards firmware
  • In the case of smart/android firmware, you can rename the Reference number like REF48 to SOS for universal boot
  • The backup dump file name can be renamed or written as you wish but better to write it as board name or TV brand name/model

Firmware/Bin Extension:

The file extension is the file type name that is written at the end of the file. Mostly the following extensions you will found in firmware files:

.bin, .img, .pkg

The file extension name may be different. it depends on the developer how it packs the file.

Steps For Installation in Non-Smart Board:

  1. Transfer the required bin file in formatted FAT32 USB disk
  2. Connect IR/Keypad with Board
  3. Connect the USB disk with the TV Board while the board is powered OFF
  4. Now Power on the switch. The LED light indicator starts flashing automatically (color does not matter)
  5. Wait to stop flashing led light. in some cases led flashing speed increased while completed
  6. Remove USB disk and release standby
  7. Done
  8. Note. No Screen display during the software installation process in non-smart or universal TV boards

Steps For Installation in Smart/Android Board:

  1. Transfer the required bin file in formatted FAT32 USB disk
  2. Connect IR/Keypad with Board
  3. Connect the USB disk with the TV Board USB-2 Slot while the board is powered OFF
  4. Now go through the following:

Method-1:

  • Switch ON the TV and wait for Auto Boot
  • Installation progress will be display on the screen
  • After Completion, Switch off the TV and again Power ON

Method-2:

  • Press the power/standby button and Switch ON. Hold the key until the screen display installation progress
  • After Completion, Switch off the TV and again Power ON

  • USB will boot then release the key
  • After Completion, Switch off the TV and again Power ON

NOTE:

  1. The software can be installed without a screen/panel
  2. Some boards do not need to switch off after complete installation
  3. Some Boards just need to standby release after completion of software
  4. Some boards do not have any screen display installation progress bar. so, in this case, just follow the led light flashing
