Sony Bravia smart tv skype problem with connection

Hi,

 I'm the owner of sony bravia KDL42W805A tv, used skype app on this tv very often ( of course with compatible sony camera ). Couple days ago I started to have a problem with that app. Every time when I try to log in, skype is showing me that it can't connect to internet, and asking to check internet connection settings in tv. I checked thhat many times and everything is fine, other app which need internet connection working fine ( you tube, internet browser ). I have the latest firmware in tv, and I also tried to reset tv to the factory default - without the results. Could anybody help me to find solution for it. I will be appreciate :happy:

My Sony KDL42W805A did exactly the same - Skype worked early last week, then would not connect. The Sony website - http://www.sony-europe.com/support/en/content/cnt-hn/prd-tvhc/skype-disabled-on-some-tvs/KDL-42W805A - has details of the models affected.

 

However, my TV updated itself this morning and Skype now works again, once I had logged back in. If your TV has not updated, connect it to the internet, go to settings > product support > software update and, with luck, you should be able to use Skype again.
