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 I recently updated the software to 5.30 version, and after that I noticed a weird problem with video streaming, in general issue with internet bandwidth. Usually my b/w is ~35 mbps so that is sufficient for 4k streaming on youtube or netflix. The issue is after running for 10-15 mins if I pause the video or go backward the network speed is thrashing badly. For example when I check internet connection on netflix it shows ~30-35 mbps, but whne that problem occurs and I check the speed again I see the speed is dropped to <1mbps. Same with youtube, it can't load 4k videos anymore as the speed is ~1mbps. I can realize the problem as the thumbnails load very slow with scrolling. This problem does not get away unless I restart the TV or disconnect from wifi AP and connect back. The router always works fine I mean when I observe the problem on tv I can run videos on mobile seamlessly and see a speed of ~40 mbps on the same router. The router is kept next to the TV so I don't think it is some issue with wifi distance etc. I don't know what to do. I tried resetting but it removed all my app but it was actually not a so called "factory reset". So software version remained same. To rule out hardware problem I want to revert to previous version of the software but apparently I can't downgrade the software. Is there any other approach to load some previous version firmware?

      Hi,
      My problem is that my Netflix app on my LG tv (OLED65B13LA) keeps selecting the leftmost button, it's impossible to scroll the cursor to the right to select another button. I tried resetting the tv to factory defaults - after installing Netflix again the issue is exactly the same.
      I also tried disconnecting the tv from power for a few minutes. Plus I contacted Netflix, but they said I need to contact TV manufacturer before they log a possible bug in the app :/.
      My Amazon Prime app works perfectly fine on the same tv.
      Any thoughts?

      We have two LG TV's that stopped connecting to our PLEX media server after the last update. TImes out saying "Checking connection speed to Raspberrypi" which the PLEX is on
      Upgraded the Mesh Routers before trying anything, still only the PLEX app doesn't work
      Our other TCL TV and Roku and TIVO still work with Plex, so this is only the LG TV's that can't connect anymore.
      Another annoying error after the last update is that any Streaming app (Amazon, Netflix, and DIsney) now fall out of the app and go back to HDMI port 1 if we pause for 30 seconds.  Which we have always done for a Bathroom break or getting drinks.
