Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.
Usually the warranty is 1 year. When did you buy this TV?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
About a year and a half ago, no worries if you can't fix it, thanks for trying
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Goodbye
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 1 year ago.
The fault is with the Bluetooth receiver and would require taking it to a repair center. If their would have been any software issue, it would have been corrected by the factory reset. But since the fault is internal, calling the local repair would be the best option.Would you like to rate my services positively?
