I have a 1TB Elements Play which works OK as an external drive when connected to my computer. Blue light turns on and the PC detects the drive. When I disconnect it from my PC, the WDEP would then shut down by itself and the blue light will shut off.
However, when connected to the TV whether thru HDMI cable or RCA, once I turn on the WDEP, the blue light will turn on but it won’t connect/register to the TV. Moreover, the WDEP blue light won’t shut off even using the remote. It only shuts down when I unplug it.
I can’t update the firmware either since it says in the manual I need to use the remote. Any suggestion is most welcome. Thanks.
