is it a smart tv?

But the remove just stopped working now

In normal use, the red standby light is on when the TV is off (indicating the TV is on standby), and the red standby light is off when the TV is in use (or doesn't have power).

Customer Replay

It's only on when you press the remote

Are your batteries fully charged?

Take the batteries out, please

But the remote undergoes a stress

without the batteries, please press every single button on your remote control for 3 seconds each
