It is the ROM thats on the TV, it appears to be destined for a French country but in English, possible it was customized, but you cannot then change this sorry, as the reset should have loaded the original one.
I am really sorry about this and you are going to have to return the TV and request an actual factory standard one as this is not it
I am really sorry about this, and if you have problems, or would like any additional information or assistance, please do not hesitate to let me know.
And if you can take a second to rate my service, that would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you
