What do the lights at the bottom of the TV screen mean? (Google TV™ or Android TV™ with Operational response in the menu)

    For a Google TV or Android TV with Operational response in the menu, the LEDs can light up for various reasons:

    A diagram showing the position of the LEDs under the screen when the TV is viewed from the front. Depending on the model, there are LEDs (A) and (B), or only (B).

    • A: LED for the Voice function: At the bottom left side of the TV (This is only for TVs with a built-in microphone)
    • B: LED / Status LED for the Operational response: At the bottom center of the TV

    (A) LED for the Voice function

    The LED turns on or blinks when Ok Google is detected and the TV is communicating with the server. The lighting pattern of this LED changes depending on the status of communication with the server.

    Note for models released in 2021 or later:

    • You can use the built-in MIC on the TV when the built-in MIC switch is On. For the location of the built-in MIC switch, refer to the Reference Guide supplied with the TV.
    • After you press the Google Assistant/MIC button on the remote control and finish activating the built-in MIC, the Voice function LED is lit with an amber light when the built-in MIC is Off. (When the built-in MIC is On, the Operational response LED is lit with an amber light).

    Note for 2020 models: If "Ok Google" detection is disabled after enabling the function, the LED is lit with an amber light while the TV is On. The LED is not lit while in standby mode.

    (B) LED / Status LED for the Operational response

    The LED turns on or blinks with white light when the TV is turning on, when receiving signals from the remote control, or when updating the software using a USB storage device.
    When the built-in MIC switch is On (only models with the built-in MIC switch) or "Ok Google" detection is enabled, the Operational response LED is lit with an amber light.

    Note: This is only for TVs with a built-in microphone.
