Unfortunately typical.

Smart TVs often have limitations such as you must sign into the maker's "hub" first and then no spaces in names or passwords with nothing but lower case a-z and 0 to 9. Any non-alphanumeric and it goes south.

Frankly the Smart TV makers are blowing this round. Can't figure out why.

Curse of the bad design decisions when you see "Error model bind".

This error message is one generated by Facebook. It is not an issue with the unit. It could possibly be an issue with the settings. You can try to go through the Help Center on FB for assistance.
