It sounds like bad firmware have you checked ?please click the link above its on the bottom of the page, I know this may sound confusing but the firmware controls the set
Expert:  info tech replied 1 year ago.
You must check to see if the firmware is the same or its later if its later you need to upgrade which will correct the issue, you can do that over the internet or manually its all in the guide Anthony
