Problem at startup with Panasonic TV TH-42PZ80E

Hi !
I got my new Vero 4K+ today. I connected to the TV (mentioned in the title).
The startup process seems to work correctly (all the lines get OK status) but then an unhappy face displays and nothing more happens
Regularly the face goes off, the display turns black and then the unhappy face displays again after few seconds.
I grabbed some pictures with my phone at startup.
Hany help?
Thanks a lot…


Do you know how to login via SSH or can you connect a keyboard to login via terminal?
After you login you can try with a reset of the Kodi settings.

Details regarding how to access the command line interface can be found here on our Wiki:

Let’s test with Kodi default settings. Enter the following commands with an SSH connection.

systemctl stop mediacenter
mv ~/.kodi ~/kodi.bak
systemctl start mediacenter

If needed you can restore:

systemctl stop mediacenter
mv ~/.kodi ~/kodi.bk2
mv ~/kodi.bak ~/.kodi
systemctl start mediacenter

If your original setup was restored as expected and you want get rid of the unneeded clean install you can delete that with the following command.

rm -r ~/kodi.bk2

If OP hasn’t customised anything yet, a reinstall would be a quicker and simpler way to get back up and running.

Please see Reinstalling OSMC - Vero 4K - OSMC.


Thanks for your help. The reinstallation helped and everything is working now !
