it has an android button on remote but dont do anything lol if anyone could help with apps or even software update be great

Just go into you're settings and look for update that will sort that part for you.
Google says yours is Android based so yeah you can install apps have a look for the play store or app button.

Your TV apparently is an android smart TV so installing apps shouldn't be an issue. Firstly have you signed in via a Gmail account? If not this is likely why the android button does nothing. Installing apps should be easy either from the play store but this sometimes has limitations. To work around that install ES file manager on your phone this will scan for devices like your TV and you can then directly send files from your phone to the TV or if that's to complicated use a USB stick. You must also enable the setting to allow 3rd party software if it is an apk file not from the play store.

"...was send wrong remote which was promptly replace by Celo Electronics..."

That remote looks physically different to the one pictured on page 2 of the manual in my previous post. Maybe you too have the incorrect remote?

​ Yeah I think Andyroyd is right that remote doesn't look the right one.

You should have a button on saying smart

got it new from catalog mate

most smart tv's let you control them with a app on your smart phone.
go onto the App store and search Goodmans remote and try using one of them to open your smart menu.

What does the manual say?
