If you’re having an Android (smart) TV, you will be able to connect to WiFi easily from the settings.
As far as the non-smart unit you would need a 3rd party streaming device that can connect to WiFi, itself, therefore streaming online content.
Let’s proceed with identifying your TV capabilities:
The very first thing to do is to identify if your TV can connect to WiFi without the help of a 3rd party device.
Usually, smart TVs, in your case Sceptre TV, will have many applications and a large menu with a graphical interface (Android). If that’s your model, jump to Step #2.
As far as the non-smart version, it would not have any processing power, therefore won’t be able to connect to the internet. If that’s your case, read along.
For non-smart units, you can use a streaming device that can connect to WiFi on its own.
Anything connected with an HDMI cable can be your streaming source (computer, console, streaming stick, even mobile phone).
All you need to do is connect your streaming device to the HDMI input on your TV, download the mobile app and connect the device to the WiFi.
It’s just like your TV is connected to WiFi but it will be streaming from the HDMI device.
If your TV does have Android OS, that means it is smart, therefore you can connect it to WiFi without the help of a 3rd party device.
For this purpose you would need to reach the network settings:
- Turn ON your TV.
- Go to the settings (on the top right corner).
- Locate and open the Network & Internet settings.
Once there proceed with the next step to turn ON the WiFi.
In order to learn how to connect Sceptre TV to WiFi, once in the Network & Internet settings, you should search for a slider that will toggle ON/OFF the WiFi feature.
If disabled make sure to press the slider button so you can activate the WiFi of your TV, otherwise it won’t be able to connect to your network.
Once the WiFi is activated, you should select your network from the list. Under the available WiFi networks, you may see quite a lot of possible WiFi signals to connect to.
You would need to find and press on your own WiFi. Once you press on your network you should enter your password and hit the OK button.
Easy as that your TV should now be connected to your WiFi, therefore you will be able to use all the online features.
Now if you’re wondering how to connect the TV to WiFi without a remote, keep reading as we’re about to unveil several different ways to do so.
If you have lost your Sceptre TV remote, the batteries are warned out or it simply does not work anymore, there is nothing to worry about.
There are quite a few different methods that will allow you to use your Sceptre TV without having the original remote at your disposal.
Let’s start with the easiest method.
It might sound unbelievable, but Sceptre TVs have support for a USB mouse. You can easily take over the TV functionality by plugging a computer mouse into one of the USB inputs of your TV.
If the connection is successful, you would immediately see your cursor on-screen.
Using the mouse, navigate to the Network & Internet settings to enable your WiFi and connect the TV to it.
On the back panel of your TV, there should be an Ethernet port which means that you can hook the TV to the internet without having to mess with WiFi at all.
On the back of your router, there should be 4 yellow outputs, at which you can connect the Ethernet cable and the other end of your TV.
That would deliver wired internet to your TV and then you should be able to establish a permanent remote using the third and last method.
Unfortunately, this method applies only to Sceptre TVs that run an Android operating system.
This is because the Android OS can easily download applications, which can connect to your smartphone to form the perfect wireless remote for your TV.
Follow the steps below to control your Sceptre TV with your smartphone:
- Open the app store on your phone.
- Download any Universal Remote app.
- Open the app and click on the discover device button.
- Upon pressing on your TV a prompt showing code should appear.
- Enter the code on your phone and you should be ready.
Note: If your TV is not connected to WiFi, you would need to use one of the previous methods to hook it up and then establish your permanent smartphone remote.
To connect your Sceptre TV to WiFi you would need to find out whether it supports direct connection or not. If the TV is running on Android OS, go to Network & Internet settings, toggle ON the WiFi feature and select your network beneath. Insert your password and voila, you should be ready.
What for Non-Smart TVs?
For non-smart Sceptre TV units, you would need a streaming device such as Amazon Fire Stick, a gaming console, computer, or any device that can broadcast via HDMI.
