Some TV's can be connected to the internet and are then able to get software updates from the manufacturer. Look into that as a possibility.

The Roku is the problem, not the TV. You need to go to the Roku site and request download information to synch the Roku to an HDMI input.

I hope that you have gotten this resolved, but if you have not, or if you have the problem again in the future, here are some simple steps for you!

1. Hold down the clear TV button until all lights light up at the top of the remote
2. Punch in a 3 digit code (provided below)
3. Press the # (POUND) button
4. Try powering the tv on/off, and the volume. If one or more of these functions do not work, start over from step 1 with a different code

This is a common fault as the set on ageing deteriorates in the connections. There is a high possibility that the components over a period of heating and cooling, tend to bring on a problem of dry soldering. So my advice is to check the set for some loose joints that have played on to give you these erratic shut downs or poor performance.

The best way to check for loose connections is to tap lightly when the set is powered on , If there is change while tapping then it seems that there are DRY solder joints. Remove main plug, the covers - with caution of high voltage, check for dry joints, use a good soldering iron to solder all suspected points.

Sometimes the fault occurs when the set warms up, if so you can simulate the heat using a hair dryer on the suspected areas, try with the power supply, distribution, Processor controller, driver controllers on the A/V related sections. Also the use a FREEZE-IT spray can simulate the components to cool and show up the fault.

Based on the above method you must be able to locate the area of fault and solder the sections. Sometimes large IC's- ones with more pins- tend to have drying in some pins and so cause faults related to the IC's protocol. Have a rough idea of looking into the areas to reduce the time of probing.

There's a good chance you have failing electrolytic capacitors either in the power section or the inverter section or both.
Any caps in these sections that look bulged at the top, or bulged/leaking at the bottom need to be replaced.
If you repeatedly turn it off and on, eventually it'll probably stay on, but every time you turn it off, the TV will get harder and harder to start up until one day it just won't.
Sometimes you have to do the opposite to start it up and unplug it for some time and then try again.

If you aren't tech savvy, don't worry, read the rest of this solution and watch the videos.

If you are handy with a soldering iron and can identify the power supply and inverter / FM section for the backlights, an inexpensive handful of capacitors will likely fix you right up.
Match the capacitance on the capacitors. Go over voltage if you can, and still have them fit.
IE - it's not a bad idea to replace a 10V cap with a 16V or 25V or even a 50V, but don't replace a 680uF cap with a 500uF or a 1000uF (unless you are positive it's only doing ripple filtering, and even then, you should go OVER, not under the uF rating).

Most of the caps that go are 10V 1000uF or 3300uF.

I found some great videos of the procedure (for many Samsungs with the same issue) on youtube.

As you can see, this issue spans plasma TVs, as well as large and small LCD TVs and monitors.
The parts are cheap, and skill required is minimal.
You can order the capacitors online from places like and they are usually less than a dollar each. They have a flat shipping rate (here it's $8) and the parts arrive next business day.

You need to change out the caps on the video processing board,caps (smd) type have gone bad ,must replace the caps by exp. or qualified tech,must be able to unsolder and solder components ,make sure to clean board with some denatured alcohol ,board gets saturated by electrolyte that leaks out of the caps,common problem ,happens in all electronics,that or take it to the shop,caps look like little silver round cans

You either have a malfunctioning LCD controller(T-con) or the panel itself is faulty. The T-con is very inesxpensive and easy to replace but the panel is gonna cost you nearly as much as a new tv. Let me know if you want to give the t-con a shot so that I can guide you to fix it.

High definition ready is different to Full High defintion for the simple reason the software is different to prove play a HD play station game on both and you will immediately see the difference in picture quality however the difference is not so significant on your normal satellite HD channels depending on the resolution the TV can produce
