PreCentral: Choose your own adventure with CyBoot
By Francisco Estrada
I have the LG WP401 webOS Box model, to configure it, the previous administrator gave it a password and it did not leave it for me.
How can I give it a factory reset or change the current password to be able to enter via the Web, to use the content manager and control manager
Thanks for the help
A few months ago after a firmware update, the one that says "SLING + FreeStream" across the screen on starting sling, each time the tv comes on, and sling was the last item open, it says network error, and if I exit sling loads fine.
It only does this with Sling and my LG tv's. Netflix doesn't do it and my Samsung and Visio don't do it. None of my LG's did until that update. It's like they're trying to go to a site before the TV's network is ready, and no retrying it.
If I go to Netflix then turn off the TV, when I turn it back on Netflix loads just fine with no Error.
I'm resetting these again. I tried that multiple times and it doesn't fix anything. Deleting the Sling app and reloading and updating doesn't help either. This all happens on all 3 of my new LG's.
Is there a Twitter App for LG webOS? I can't find it in the LG Content Store on my LG smart OLED TV. I can open Twitter in the browser app, and once it raised a prompt "It's better in the App" but that has not returned.
Web searches on the topic come up empty. Either the app is there so nobody asks about it, OR people are really incurious!
I noticed since the last update of WebOS, it defaults to a screen with apps along the bottom rather than HDMI1 as before on startup. Even after going into the input settings and selecting HDMI1, it stills defaults to the other screen on startup. When selecting HDMI1 on the inputs screen, it has a red dot in the corner, which I would assumes means that's the selected default. But again, this seems to be ignored this on startup.
UPDATING YOUR FIRMWARE
The firmware that powers your LG Ultra HD 4K Smart TV with webOS should be updated from time to time to enhance your experience and improve its operation. Thankfully, this can be done easily and quickly, right at home.
Watch this quick video to learn more. Or follow the easy steps below to get started.
HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO UPDATE MY FIRMWARE?
Firmware updates don't happen frequently, so you should be fine checking for updates every other month.
HOW DO I CHECK FOR, AND DOWNLOAD, AVAILABLE FIRMWARE UPDATES?
Before you do anything, make sure you have an Ethernet cord connected directly from your router to your television. Wireless Internet connections are not reliable enough for firmware updates.
Use this diagram if you need help getting set up:
ONCE YOUR TV HAS A WIRED CONNECTION, DO THE FOLLOWING:
Press the MENU Click SYSTEM SETTINGS Then ABOUT Then SYSTEM UPDATES You'll be advised that your system is currently up to date or requested to select CHECK NOW for the latest update. If a new version is available, it downloads automatically. FIRMWARE UPDATES WILL ALSO UPDATE LG ULTRA HD 4K SMART TV AND LG APPS AT THE SAME TIME.
