        Maybe your ethernet plug is well worn, reason why its loose. also check that all pins in socket are on angle.
        Remove covers and align sd card slot better may help. not hard

          Thanks for the advice

          I had already tried a new Ethernet cable just in case, it looks like the moulding inside is a bit rounded so it is not clipping in but it will be fine.

          Good thought on the card reader - I've already had it open to compare against your photos but did not look to adjust it!!

          I will give it a go - thanks again!!

                Hi Guys,

                I just bought one of these, though looks like its DOA. Blue light turns on, though no signal via HDMI and it won't turn off via the remote control. Also looks like it's not registering / requesting DHCP via ethernet. Suspect that it is bricked. Have tried 3 different TV's and HDMI cables, to no avail.

                What's the best way to un-brick? I don't have a male to male USB or SD card, so would need to purchase either of these, based on the best method to bring it back to life.

                Any help is appreciated.

                      Thx a lot tЯeboЯ

                      That's simplier that way !

                      I recently bought a M8S 3GB ram at a good price on GBest, there is one yet cheaper with 2GB at Gbuying. So I'm in the way to do some 4k hdr tests, and dont want to get stucked by crappy fw.

                      I noticed on the Youtube redskull'channel that there was very bad IO performance with emmc (far from you snapshot on OP), and a relative low ddr4 ram performance.
                      As his devices are sent by manufacturer, i don't know either it's the fw that could be too early, or if your sample was tailored for a good review....

                      Also I wonder about one thing on Android (v6/v7) : i previously got a V88pro s905x android 6 TV (had to unlock all four cores by setting governor from hotplug to performance), but whaterver i choose in display (auto, 4k 60kz, 4k smpte), kodi as cpuz as aida64 (and as every systeminfo tool) returns internal screen resolution always at 1080, never 4K.... Was hoping to at least see 4K streaming choice from youtube panel, but never ... last choice always1080 (note that all works fine @ 1080p). Can it be an android version internal limit?

                      I also have had readings about s905x doing VP9.2 playing, but I did'nt achieve this with the V88pro android6.
                      I expect that M8S and/or Nougat will let me play my usb stick with these youtube-dl 337'profiled files that I downloaded from google youtube cloud.

                      And my last question for the expert you are : do you know if is there any YT apk (mod/dedicated) that can run on an 7.x tv box (else than chromecast ultra) to allow real native 4K hdr vp9.2 streaming ?

                      Thx again.
                      Cheers



                      Edit : I found eMMC datasheet samsung KLMAG2WEPD-B031, page 12 Performance is max 150MB/s Read, but 12MB/s Write, as same other reviewers got.
                      So Write perf of 58 to 63MB/s (from SD card test pro and A1SD) reported in OP is quite surpring and needs to be verified... ?!

                          Does anyone have a way to root the device? Tried kingroot but didn't work.
