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!

      In this installment of On the Job, we go inside LG’s System Integrated Circuit (SIC) Center to learn how LG is leveraging the latest AI to help deliver new customer experiences.

      Imagine if there was a refrigerator that could play music and change color to match your current mood or spice up your kitchen décor. Well, as it happens, such a fridge actually exists – the newly introduced refrigerator with MoodUP from LG. The unique capabilities and customer experiences offered by LG’s latest kitchen innovation owe much to the LG8111, an on-device AI system-on-chip (SoC) developed by LG’s SIC Center.
      Even before it was known as LG Electronics, the company began producing chips for consumer electronics as far back as 1992, at the ASIC Center under Goldstar’s Central Research Institute. Now, LG’s SIC Center is responsible for developing all of the AI chips used in LG products. These technologies have evolved over time to become the AI-based integrated circuits now used in cutting-edge appliances and home entertainment solutions such as LG OLED TV, and now, the fridge with MoodUP.

      (From left to right) Chang Woon-suk, lead of Smart Solution TP, LG SIC Center, and Lee Jin-jong, LG SIC Center professional
      Greatly expanding the customer experience, the company’s latest AI chips can process innumerable data points and enable LG appliances to communicate with one another – and with other smart devices as well. LG8111, the new AI chip used in the MoodUP, features an acceleration engine that processes information gathered from the refrigerator’s built-in cameras, microphones and sensors in real time. This allows the MoodUP to quickly recognize changes in its immediate environment and adjust performance accordingly, facilitate more convenient interactions with users and accurately assess if all of its features are functioning optimally.

      Recognizing the importance that AI will play in consumer electronics and wanting to find a solution to differentiate LG products, engineers at the LG SIC Center began to develop the LG8111 in 2017 and created the first prototype in 2018. The LG8111, a highly integrated AI chip that is equipped with an LG-specific AI processor, is perfectly designed for LG products. While the chip performs and functions better online, its AI functions can also be utilized offline as well.
      Impressively, the LG8111 can provide three types of AI: vision intelligence (the ability to recognize and distinguish between different spaces, locations, objects and users), voice intelligence (the ability to recognize users’ voices or specific noises associated with a certain type of space) and control intelligence (the ability to adjust and optimize performance according to physical or chemical changes in the environment). Also, when connected to Wi-Fi, any product equipped with the LG8111 can transmit information to nearby devices or to cloud servers.

      “We spent a considerable amount of time deciding which device would be the first to apply our new on-device AI chip,” said Chang Woon-suk, lead of Smart Solution TP, LG SIC Center.
      Various appliances were in contention, but ultimately, the SIC team decided to go with a refrigerator, a choice made because the household fridge has the distinction of being the only home appliance to operate 24/7. The first recipient of the state-of-the-art chip, the color-changing LG refrigerator with MoodUP boasts a seamless voice recognition feature that allows for convenient, remote control and monitoring via the LG ThinQ app.

      “All of our top-notch researchers at the LG SIC Center are dedicated to developing chip solutions based on the core goal of maximizing customer value,” said Chang. “While we’re pleased with the success of the LG8111, we will continue to push the envelope as a team to take the customer experience to the next level.”
      The successful implementation of the LG8111 in the new LG refrigerator with MoodUP opens the way for the chip’s use in a wide range of LG solutions, from other smart home appliances to electric vehicle components.

      Hello,
      I am not able to force my new TV LG 49UN7400 to sound output only for BT - not BT headphones + internal speakers. Headphones are correctly paired, because "headphones + internal speakers" works, but I want hear sound ONLY in headphones and the choice "Bluetooth" is not active/selectable... 😕 Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

      I have set up a hard disc, that I can see in the home menu, but when I go to the guide and select the "i" it only gives me the option to watch. I am very new to smart television and I can't figure out how to correct this problem.

      Hi to all! 
      I'm really new into this and have a problem. My 2018 LG 55UJ635V-ZF has only webOS 3 (latest; ethernet-automatic download) an i can't use airplay or miracast. The apps i found in the store for mirroring are only pay2use to use this needed feature for me.
      On the LG Homepage i can't find an upgrade for my TV an maybe is my tv really to old for upgrades or am i wrong?
      Maybe someone can help me out or bring some light for me in this.
      I also found the suggestions on this site for the firmware 4.70.70 (for the UJ's), but i can't download....error.
      sorry for my bad english 🙂
      thx for your help, quartex.
