Toshiba 40G300U1 – updating firmware

Posted in TechSupport by rip747 on July 10, 2011

Steps to update the firmware for a Toshiba 40G300U1 since the instructions that Toshiba supplies in their manual are wrong.

1) Format the USB stick as FAT32. Make sure that you DO NOT perform a quick format.

2) copy the firmware update to the USB drive. NOTE that it must be the only file on the drive.

3) Turn the TV OFF (Toshiba saids you can let it on)

4) Insert the USB stick into the USB slot.

5) Turn the TV ON.

At this point the TV will detect the firmware update and start going. DO NOT power off the TV unless you want a really expensive and crappy mirror hanging on your wall.

After the update is complete (it will say so). Turn the TV OFF and THEN remove the USB drive.

Congrats you’re at the least version.
