HOW DO I GET YOUTUBE ON MY SMART TV?

 

 

 

I have a new smart TV, Sony 46EX645.  I can access SEN, Yahoo, Netflix and other sites.  However, when I try to play anything on YouTube, I just get a black picture.  I've tried to log in several times with no success.  By contrast, my Sony Blu-Ray player, BDP-S590, plays YouTube just fine, with no log in required.  So, how can I get YouTube videos on my so-called Smart TV?

 

Thanks for your help.

Hi,

 

Try installing the latest firmware update in the TV and check.

If it does not resolve the issue try factory resetting the TV.

Re: HOW DO I GET YOUTUBE ON MY SMART TV?

Thanks for your quick response.  However, I find it very surprising that a brand new TV, purchased only a few weeks ago, should require such an elaborate fix - and a fix that could result in damage to the TV.   I think I'll take a pass on this.

 

By the way, I see that a poster after me, sarav_cit, has the same problem and that you're continuing to work on the solution.

 

Thanks
