How to update firmware Via USB stick?


Walter

Question

got myself 2 new LG smart WebOS TV's one 4K and one just a smart 3D

 

on the 4K one the LG store is completely available, as it has a higher software version

 

the regular one just says "COMING SOON"  (not so smart tv)

 

anyhow, i called LG as when i tried to update the firmware on the non 4k one (03.00.68) it tells me there is no update found (they told me there is an available update but there is an issue with their system stopping updates)

 

yet when i go to LG's homepage (

link hidden, please login to view
) there clearly is one which would take me to 03.00.85 ....

 

 

 

SOOOOO, i have downloaded the files, and put them on a USB drive, plugged them into the TV, but cant find how to manually install???

 

any help would be appreciated!

I'm having the same problem with my new LG Smart TV.  When I go to the LG Store it says "Coming Soon".  I note that 3 days ago the new software was made available for download on LG Australia website.  i have downloaded it but would like some guidance on updating the software.   I will give it a go tonight.  I vaguely remember an update area in the settings but can't remember if "via USB" was an option.  Will post tomorrow.

 

***********Update - No luck with updating the software from USB stick.  I found a support article for an older model TV that said the software needed to be in a folder called LG_DTV (which I did) but still no luck.  When you go to the general page (under settings) and go to About This TV you have an option to check for updates but it appears that it only checks the internet and consequently comes back and says "no updates available".  No option to direct the TV to the USB stick.  VERY VERY FRUSTRATING!

I saw on another forum that there was an error with some of the update codes that was causing the TV's to malfunction. I'm guessing that's why you can't download the update directly right now. I'd hold of on figuring ways to sideload it until that error gets fixed.

 

 

the smartphone app for the tv is finally able to pick my tv up but that yielded no luck either! last week i called LG and they stated that there was an update issue which would be fixed within 3 days or i should go and return the tv!!!!!!!!....are they for real?

I have a 47LB6500-SF brazilian model and i would like to update it...

The problem is that at the brazilian LG site still hasn't 2014 line listed and so hasn't firmware to download too....

I found the model in other countries but with the letters at the end different of mine... For example: In Hong Kong is 47LB6500-CA, and in Australia and India is 47LB6500-TH.

 

My question is: can i update with one of these firmwares even the two final letters (that i have no idea what it means, despite i searched a lot) or i will brick my TV??

 

Tnx in advance!

      Hi all,
       
      My LG OLED55E7N just updated to firmware 06.00.25. I must have wronged the god of Google, because I fail to find any whatsnew. Anyone?
      Thx

      I am using the above TV. Quite often when watching a programme live from the aerial, the screen will suddenly go to the "wallpaper" screen and a box advises there is no signal, the TV is checking for a signal and please check connections etc. After a few seconds the TV resumes with the programme that was being watched. Obviously, the TV seems to be temporarily losing the signal. However, a 2nd LG TV (older model) in another room, feeding from the same aerial has no such problem and neither do I get signal drop outs when using my Humax box for recordings, all of which suggests the aerial signal is perfectly OK but for some reason the 55NANO795NE  momentarily loses it. Anyone else having a similar problem and any thoughts on what to do to resolve it?

      Hello all,
      I believe this problem started after i accidently started and immediately cancelled the download of a app. After this I am unable to install or update any app evem after resetting to initial settings.
      This should be the exact problem found here https://www.lgwebos.com/topic/1918-because-i-can however the solution seems to require a new update. Help?

      LG’s massive ultra-high-definition digital billboard overlooking New York City’s iconic Times Square became host to a three-phase visual spectacle that reflects the company’s efforts to engage with consumers directly around the seasons. LG’s first 3D content series designed for the billboard is a stunning visual display sure to make passersby smile. The new billboard content will run through the end of November.

      Taking full advantage of the Times Square billboard’s unique curved design, LG harnesses the power of forced perspective to display imaginative multi-dimensional 3D content which share the company’s core messaging that together, Life’s Good. Launching with an inspiring back-to-school message for the American audience, the 3D illusion begins with an explosion of crayons and swirling images from scissors to school buses, dancing around the screen, eventually spelling out LIFE’S GOOD before being buried by a multitude of crayons as the animation continues its loop.

       
      Over the past year LG has mobilized the Times Square billboard to engage, educate, and entertain consumers during the pandemic. From hosting the YouTube documentary “Life In A Day 2020” by Academy Award-winning director Kevin Macdonald to premiering the “Global Citizen VAX LIVE Extended Concert Sponsored by YouTube,” to encouraging climate action on ENERGY STAR® Day, LG has leveraged the space in Times Square to remind viewers that Life’s Good no matter how challenging our surroundings may be.

      “We hope that visitors in Times Square are not only awed by the visual splendor of the 3D display, but also that they will be inspired to believe that no matter the season, Life’s Good together,” said Peggy Ang, senior vice president of marketing, LG Electronics USA. “At the same time, our new 3D content series exemplifies how LG is innovating when it comes to engaging with consumers.”

      Hello,
      Is there any way of installing an usb gigabit network adapter on a webos smart TV?  The builtin wired adapter is only 100mbps (on a 2000$+ TV, shame  on you LG!!!)  while the wifi (N) is very poor, with the router at 1m from TV it only gets half the bandwidth of the wired network. Anyway the wired network  maxes out near 100mbps but I need more bandwidth as I have 4k video content with bitrates grater than 100mbps which I cannot stream without stuttering to TV through XPLAY/PLEX. 
      Kind regards,
