Wireless LAN KDL60X720 Problem

by buzzmag / November 1, 2011 12:17 AM PDT

I've setup the wireless for the TV. The set found my SSID, accepted by network's password and the set confirms the connection. That's as far as it goes. When I attempt to access my network, I get a "server not accessible" message.

Sony tech support and forum useless and the setup and user manuals are a waste of paper.

Any ideas?

Samsung units are similar. For example you see this happen with WEP protected networks. The common fix is to use WPA2 AES on the router.

Tried WPA2 AES but that didn't help. Should WMP be open when I try to access the server?

Sounds like progress of a sort.

It appears it connects to the network fine. But what server is it looking for?

Just an idea. Many of the new routers have a firewall that was not in older routers and is causing troubles like this. Not to go over why we do this but I have the techs turn it off since it didn't exist before and most folk do not have the time to figure it out. Besides the natural firewall because we have a router will do fine.

Turned off windows firewall and router's firewall. Same results - server not accessible.

Still have one issue to solve.

Be aware that some servers do go offline. Sony's network was offline for weeks or months! Samsung decided to do something similar and you hear/read such as folk try to use a product from the US in Canada or such.

What I'm writing is that your network may be just fine. It could be a Sony server that is off line or not reachable in your country.

I downloaded an app named TVMOBiLI, installed it and added my media folders to the install. Found a server on the first try. Still trying to get the TV to actually see my shared drives.

I could not find the KDL60X720 as Sony's site. Maybe I need to try some AUS site?

Time to ask sony. Other sets had issues and even with the network working, troubles.

I can't find what server it was looking for and we lost discussion time because I could not find the model to check the manual. I thought I'd offer what I know from other sets but time's up. I'll be back in a week.

Here today but gone tomorrow. Nothing changed except the WMP server no longer appears. I'd call Sony but they know less than me.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
