Answer: 
Hi,

I can advise that the power lead is hardwired to the set rather than a removable kettle lead.

Thanks for using Q & A

I'm having the same problem as many other people but can't seem to find a solution..
When I try to connect to the wifi using the dongle, I enter the password but then get taken straight back to the previous screen telling me that it is not connected.
When I plug it in via the Ethernet cable the internet works fine (therefore I know that the tv is not faulty), although the router is in a bedroom and this tv is needed for the lounge therefore I need the wireless dongle to work!
Any advice?

Answer: 
hi robyn,

i'm not technically minded but i recently got a talk talk player for tv which connects tv to internet.

this came with a system which connects a LAN cable from router to electric socket in bedroom this send signal through house wiring system to power socket to lounge next to tv, another identical unit plugs into this socket with an LAN cable connecting to my talk talk box or your tv.
hope this makes sense,
best of luck, mick.

Will this television support Miracast; i.e can I cast the image on the screen of my phone onto the television screen?

Answer: 
Hello,

This television does not have the capability that allows you to cast from your phone without an external device e.g. chromecast, Apple TV etc.

Thank you for using Argos Q&A.

I have a similar problem to one highlighted by one of the other purchasers. I purchased the wifi dongle which goes with this set, but no matter what you do it doesn't connect. It sees the signal, you enter the code, it thinks about it for about 10 seconds and then takes you back (unconnected) to the earlier screen. There's no explanation or anything. All my other equipment connects to the router and I've tried using the WPS feature on the router - but no success.

Any suggestions?

Answer: 
my daughter had same problem. spent ages on phone to technical people who tried various ideas. went back to argos, it seems the dongle that came with her tv somehow shouldn't have been in the box as it wouldn't work without another piece!! they gave her a pack that is purchased separately, had exactly the same dongle but also an adapter thing with it. worked perfectly. not sure if that makes sense but it worked for her. tv was worth the effort.
