    (LG) webOS TV LK540BPUA

    Hi Maryann, When the store you purchased the TV from tells you it is like a ROKU I am sure they only mean that it can provide streaming services in much the same way, the actual setup and day-to-day usage are going to be completely different. How far have you got with setting up the TV, can you even watch programmes via your aerial/dish yet?

    (LG) webOS TV LK540BPUA

    THE MODEL OF MY TV IS: 32LK540BPUA EVERYTHING IS WRONG, I DON'T KNOW HOW TO SET IT UP, LIKE I SAID WHEN I GOT MY TV FOR CHRISTMAS I CALLED WHERE IT WAS BOUGHT AND THEY SAID IT WORKED LIKE A ROKU, I HAVE A ROKU AND BELIEVE ME IT CERTAINLY DON'T WORK LIKE A ROKU, I DIDN'T WANT TO TELL MY FAMILY TO SEND IT BACK, BUT I WOULD LOVE TO BE ABLE TO WATCH IT, AT THIS RATE NOT KNOWING WHAT TO DO TO MAKE IT DO ANYTHING I'M NEVER GOING TO BE ABLE TO WATCH IT.
  5. @txydas Hi, thanks. I tried to find the item on ebay. But I realized that here, in IRAN, sanctioned by Ultimate Satan Administration (USA), it is a tedious task to buy using ebay or amazon or ... if not saying impossible, because a TV WiFi RF module may be used in nuclear warhead, according to them. LOL! anyway, per the experiences reported in this forum, I tried to see what the module is. At the first glance, and more and more scope, no obvious fault was detected. everything seemed to be OK. So I just disassembled the module and the ribbon cable at both the module's and mainboard's header. I experienced that the TV had little or no sense to magic control. So, the module was not a thing could be ignored. So I took some photos and reassembled them again after the only common remaining task, i.e. cleaning by a spray solvent. And now, it is for 3 days that the TV has operated flawlessly. Everything is OK; Magic control, WiFi, Screenshare, No message, No pause or delay in the stream display ... I wonder what the bug was and wonder whether it would be coming back? Who knows? It was recommended to me to substitute the TV to another model or brand. It is not my decision for now. So, It may be helpful if the users, who have replaced the module, say in please that if the same tasks were done before replacing?

  7. I am not sure what you mean. My WiFi module worked fine and I never had a message on my tv screen about an unknown device until the latest software update. I don’t take to blaming manufacturers lightly and never have done so before. I only came to this site about a month ago looking guidance when I wasn’t finding it on the lg support site. The things that were suggested over there didn’t work and we were told they were working on a fix that didn’t come. Others with the problem tracked it to the WiFi module so I went there also. This is lg tv is a replacement for one that went bad while still under warranty.
  8. For the Free Movie internet channel, the movies you select as a on demand movie, how do you resume playback where I left off?

    This is a user-to-user forum, not a LG platform. As for the WiFi card issue, well the possibility is a bad batch of a product probably not made by LG. It would be good to know the details of the modules that people have had to replace so that we can get some idea of what is going on.

    Annoying pop-up messages on my lg 49sj800v smart tv

    Hi. I posted this original question and with the advice given I have resolved the issue of pop up messages and magic remote not working. I haven't replaced the wifi module as I don't use it but I have disconnected it via the settings programme and all is well and has been for some time. That's the solution. Oh and don't buy lg again. Where were they in this their own forum!
  16. Hi, I believe, by replacing the wifi module, will solve most of the errors - as i had the same problems-, if not all. Do replace the wifi module and let us know.
  17. If someone is not using WiFi, is it possible to just remove the WiFi module? Will the TV work without it?
  18. Unable to exit SlingTV app. App stays open when exiting WebOS and is open when re-entering WebOS after power down. Any suggestions?

    Headphones

    I have a pair of wireless Sennheiser RS 165s for my LG TV and they are brilliant (not especially cheap but well worth the money) https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sennheiser-RS165-Vibrant-Wireless-Headphones-black/dp/B00SBBMFLC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1550343998&sr=8-1&keywords=sennheiser+rs165 They will work with any device that has a 3.5 mm headphone output (a single cable input/output) - I can't tell for sure if your model has such an output but it should be in your manual if so.
  20. For me so far so good. There is one person over on the lg support website that has Cher WiFi module twice,her motherboard and some other parts and still has problems. Now LG tells her it may be the screen. I can’t believe they just don’t let her get another tv. She said she would settle for store credit. Most of the problems happened after the updates. Hopefully the problem is over now.
  21. I can confirm that I experienced a similar issue on my 55UJ6300, and apparently changing the WiFi RF module worked. I was not using WiFi at all, since I had my TV connected by Ethernet cable to the router, but around November 2018 I started seeing the "Unknown device disconnected" pop up messages. Some days it would happen more often than others. Sometimes a "Wired cable connected" or similar message would also show up, and sometimes a bigger black notice would show up saying "Network connection lost" or something similar. Sometimes the Ethernet connection would actually stop working after this. I also started seeing the 2-3 second pause followed by fast motion to catch up every once in a while. This would happen for example when watching YouTube or Netflix on the TV apps. Netflix would sometimes require me to get out of a movie and back to it for it to resume playing. Turning on Store Mode would hide the pop up messages, but I am sure they were still there only hidden, since the othe symptoms would persist. As someone in this thread suggessted, I opened the back of the TV, looked at the RF module, and found a similar one on eBay for less than 10 dollars (here in the US). The module was the same though the revision was a bit higher (1.1 in mine and 1.4 in the one I found). I chose it since I figured maybe a newer RF module would work for a longer time, or had the issue fixed so that it will not happen again in the future after a while. I was able to successfully switch my module with this one, and even though I have not tried WiFi directly, everything I needed seems to be working, and all the issues have disappeared for now. It has only been around 3 days, but I am hopeful that the issue will not come back.

    This app will now restart to free up more memory

    Have struggled for more than a year to ensure smooth running of apps and reliable connectivity on my new LG 43" smart TV. Finally, the clouds have started to clear, for me at least, by applying the following solutions helped by others making sensible suggestions here and elsewhere online: 1. Use a TP Powerline kit to kid your TV into thinking it has an ethernet connection (i.e. if it doesn't already, an ethernet cable runs from the router directly into your TV's ethernet socket). This investment is little more than £25 and will give greatly increased internet speed and reliability. I am on Vodafone SuperFibre, so somewhere around 70 to 76. Powerline very easy to set up in around 5 minutes. It requires a traditional electric socket by the TV. For the price, you get two 3-pin plugs and two short ethernet cables. One socket needs to be by your TV, so that one ethernet cable can run from the first plug to the TV's ethernet socket. The second plug is put into another electric socket on the same ring in the same room. The second ethernet cable runs from the second plug directly into the router, and is paired with the first plug simply by pressing the button on it. Bob's your uncle if both Powerline plugs are showing 3 green lights. These plugs are never switched off. Your TV now assumes it has an ethernet connection and stops wasting memory trying to look for a wi-fi signal. 2. Disable permanently the TV's wi-fi connection by going into the general settings. My 670UV TV's internet settings indicate WIRED CONNECTION thanks to the Powerline kit, as I cannot locate the TV conveniently near the router in my living room in order to benefit from using an ethernet cable. In addition, I have grown convinced my TV's wi-fi reception is its biggest Achilles heel, as it has never worked from Day One. 3. Disable FAST START in the general settings so that TV performs a cold start (will cost an extra 2 seconds, I reckon) with empty memory every time it is switched on with the remote. It is a fallacy that this wastes any extra electricity, and seems to be an essential part of the solution suggested here. The apparent result of applying the above three steps: 1. No buffering and no stalling or crashing of any of the TV's apps, notably iPlayer, which has up till now been dreadful and pretty much unusable. Apps generally also load quickly and smoothly. 2. Seamless YouTube play including all 4K content which was crashing all the time after a few minutes' play. 3. Better and more stable ITV HUB and Channel 5 apps, which have also hitherto often frozen or crashed. These steps have given my TV a new lease of life, as I had often toyed with returning it to John Lewis on the grounds that it doesn't work. Now, a month into the TV's new regime, I have a TV properly performing as a SMART tv, and can keep what hair I have left after tearing so much out.

    Headphones

    Your model is listed as NOT having Bluetooth so you would be limited to anything that uses the composite ports.
  24. I just replaced the WiFi module yesterday and it solved the problem also. We will not buy another LG tv again as this tv was a replacement for an LG that went bad while under warranty. This tv was fine until the last update. We feel LG should have acknowledged and sent out WiFi module replacements but they keep saying they can’t find a connection between the two. Granted some people have more issues and they offer service call but it costs. I also realize not everyone can change out the module. The hardest thing was taking out all the screws out of the back of the tv.

    Annoying pop-up messages on my lg 49sj800v smart tv

    In my case, it has solved, left the TV running straight for 3 days, and the problem has not shown up. Then I sold the TV as I don't trust LG anymore. Anyway, it's quite an unexpensive and easy fix, worth a shot.
  26. Hi Iinitially i had the sane problems as as you do. I was not using the. Wifi as next to the router. As the module is quite inexpesive it worth tryng. I bought mine from uk, second hand. Another person from brasil reaired his tv with 10 dollars. It all depens on your location. After a month , and following replacement of the wifi module, my tv is working fine.
  27. @txydas My lg49sj800v 's trouble is like the ones commented here, i. e. 1. rare message saying unknown device disconnected (it is not annoying and repetitive), 2. wifi and screenshare usually are not working. my tv name is not often appeared on mobile phone during screenshare, and wifi has the same fault. 3. occasionally, the broadcast dtv picture paused for 2-3 seconds and then resumed in fast motion mode. 4. during the faults, the the tv does not respond to magic remote controller. Do you have the other trouble I wrote here? do you think my trouble would be removed by replacing the wifi module? thanks in advance.
