Front light does not turn on

If the device does not turn on or the front light that always illuminated no longer works, it is possible that the power adapter is defective, we can find another compatible one in Aliexpress for example. If we want to try one of ours, we must take into account the use the same voltage and amperage, normally 5V and in some cases 12V, if we use a different one to the original we can damage the device.

Front light turns on but no image

This can be a software problem, so we recommend reinstalling the firmware of our model for this we follow the procedure to find and reinstall the appropriate firmware for our model as explained in this guide.

  • Test on another screen and with another video cable to discard a compatibility problem with our TV or monitor.

Restarts, system hangs or slowness

It can be due to several factors that must be deducted depending on when the problem is observed.

  1. Cooling problem due to bad design of the box, something that is seen during gaming sessions or if it goes out after intensive use. The only solution is to improve the cooling system by opening the box or changing the heat sink.
  2. Software problem with which it is necessary to reinstall the firmware or Windows as explained in this manual.
  3. Slowness during the use, it may be due to the fact that we have several apps loaded in memory, we can restart and compare or with the Windows task manager or an app manager app to control the problems in use.

Network problems, screen, sound, control or apps

  • Network problems with poor Wifi range may be due to antenna or software hardware problems, we recommend first comparing on another router to rule out incompatibility with ours. Also reinstall the firmware or restart the TV-Box from Settings> Storage> Reset for Android TV-Box.
  • Screen shows defects like blinking screen, green or other artifacts, try on another TV and another cable.
  • Colors on screen or black, try to activate the RGB mode in the screen settings of the box, maybe your TV is compatible.
  • Shutdown and control, it is possible that you have conflict with HDMI CEC deactivates that option in the settings of the device.
  • Sound problems, we recommend reading our multichannel sound guide first and check connections.
  • Problems with the apps, if our TV-Box was advertised as compatible with Netflix HD and does not comply, you have to claim.
  • Root problems, if you tried root/unroot and the system was locked reinstall the firmware.
  • If we can not solve the problem, we always recommend OPEN A CLAIM IN YOUR STORE

Problems with windows mini pc

  • We recommended not touch the BIOS of mini PCs because we can leave frozen without solution, the critical points are to change the speed of RAM, overclock or modify the GPU. Likewise, these modifications don’t should not hang up our device, so we should OPEN A CLAIM IN YOUR STORE and comment that it has stopped working without entering into technical discussions.
  • If the operating system fails, we recommend reinstalling Windows from scratch, the Windows serial number is saved in the BIOS, so we will not lose the license that will be installed directly. You have Windows installation and configuration manuals available on our website.
    – Download, install or update Windows from a USB drive

Looking for an android tv setup for my orange pi 5 chip set rk3588s. Let me know if there’s a capable version


I bought an A95x F4 with android 11, mostly for gaming purpose, but I’m having an issue with Call Of Duty, it runs the game but from the beginning I lose all the controls like mouse, keyboard or anything and couldn’t do anything or answer the in-app pop-up questions, therefore I can’t ever start playing. is there a way to fix it? I basically purchased it for COD! 🙁


Thanks. Even if i boot my device I can’t get it to work? I’ve seen many reviews that they’re playing it with TV box


Thanks alot! 🙏🏼


When logging in with Chrome on the X98H Pro, Google reported that there was a login from the Android tablet Pixel 3. Is this correct behavior? If you do the same operation from your Sony TV, it will be displayed as Android device Sony BRAVIA 4K GB ATV3. Is my X98H Pro a clone?


If you are using an Android TV Box other than the X98H Pro and are logged in to Google, I would be happy if you could tell me what the device name of the login notification from google is. It will be helpful.


Just found LineageOS 18.1 (Android 11) for Rospberry Pi. This is unofficial with Google.
The X98HPRO I got has a strange device name. I feel unofficial.
Google’s license is required to bundle and distribute Google apps with Android. Google Play and Chrome were bundled, so if it’s unofficial, it’s a violation of Google’s terms.
