    The message An error occurred during the system software update. The TV could not check for updates over the network. Please check network connections and settings. Error: (1002) may appear while performing a software download using a wireless (Wi-Fi®) internet connection.

    If you are using a Wi-Fi connection, turn off any appliances which emit radio wave (such as a microwave oven) during a software download, or connect to your router directly using LAN cable to avoid wireless interference.

    If you are still having trouble, use a computer to download the update software to a USB storage drive from your model support page  and then install the update to your TV using the USB storage drive.


    • The message Error: (1002) can be displayed when you manually download the update software in a network environment with an extremely low Wi-Fi signal. Refer to the How do I perform Firmware/ Software Updates for my Android TV™? article for more information.
