    WebOS security against hackers

    Unless I am missing what you are asking, the best protection for your LG TV from the many forms of internet attacks is done through your home network with a cyber security software. The majority of decent routers provide protection through the router firewall and embedded apps. For instance Asus routers have an excellent app, Micro Trend's AiProtection, which is active throughout your home network and working before an attack of any sort can reach your TV.
  2. Is there a way to permanently delete apps to free up both ROM and RAM? Uninstalling does not do it to allow for your TV response time to improve. A regular reset also fails to accomplish it. Will a factory reset produce the desired results?

    Lg 55 lb 6500 magic remote

    You can try to reset the magic remote, instructions as per LG: 1. Press the home and back button on the remote simultaneously for 5 seconds. 2. You will see the red light blinks thrice on the remote which means the remote has been “reset”. 3. Now point the remote towards the television and press the scroll wheel that doubles up as the “okay” button. 4. You get the message that the registration is complete. 5. You are now ready to use the magic remote to control your television features. 6. If the problem persists please call the local service center of the LG dealer for assistance.

    Screen Share with Windows 10

    I must be missing something but why not just connect your pc/laptop via HDMI cable?
  5. Additionally you could turn off auto updates on your LG. When you see a notification of update then pull the usb from the TV before initializing the update.

    Amazon Prime Music

    Unfortunately you can't watch on a LG unless you connect a PC or laptop via HDMI cable, bluetooth or WiFI. Amazon Music website requires Flash and Flash is not supported on webOS browser.
  8. I now have an issue with what appears to be back light screen bleeding from the bottom corners of my screen on a 49UF6900, particularly when the video is light. Would anyone having experienced bleed on their screen have a solution or does it need a tech to resolve/repair?

    Amazon Music

    I agree, have contacted Amazon, and others who remain steadfast in their use of Flash. I strongly suspect that time will be the determinate factor as it appears that Adobe will be designating Flash as obsolete, providing no support or security patches whatsoever, by 2020.

    Amazon Music

    Perhaps you can explain the following messsage from Amazon Music when I have flash disabled? Additionally, if for some inexpicable reason Opera can stream Amazon Music without flash, it doesn't resolved the issue of accessing the site from an LG which only allows internet access from the default in-house browser and would display the same message as below.

    Amazon Music

    The reason Amazon Music will not work on the LG browser is because Amazon like many other streaming services requires Flash on their Amazon Music portal/web page. FYI

    The issue likely stems from your router/modem, not the TV. Your network (modem and router if separate) should be rebooted by unplugging for 10 seconds at least once a month although it wouldn't hurt to do so bi-weekly. Modems, particularly cable modems are notorious for keeping everything cache'd and filling up without releasing. Doing regular network reboots will likely resolve your issues on your wireless signal dropping. If it continues there may be a problem with the wireless signal from the router, interference from other devices, hardware issue, etc. Word of advice, if modem/router is nearby it is always better to use an ethernet (wired) connection fewer potential problems to deal with.

    Activate screensaver while playing radio on tv

    I haven't found a Screensavers setting however in Advanced Settings > Picture > Energy Saving you are able to turn off video completely. Not sure which webOS you have but I suspect it is available in all iterations... 49UF6900 - webOS 2.0
