List of bugs and feedback for LG webOS TV

Question

38 answers to this question

I have a 70LB7100, and if I try to change the picture settings to 'Cinema' on any of the apps (e.g. Netflix), sometimes the display goes completely black. I can recover by powering the TV off and back on, but whenever I switch to any app after that (including some of the settings screens, e.g. naming the HDMI inputs) the screen goes black again, and I have to power off and back on to recover.

 

When it is in this state, the HDMI inputs continue to operate normally.  Also, setting 'Cinema' mode for the HDMI inputs does not appear to trigger this bug, only setting 'Cinema' mode while an app is running.

 

Doing a 'reset to initial settings' allows me to recover, but that is painful.  I also found that once it is in this state, I can recover by turning the TV off, then back on, then switching to 'store mode' (which sets the picture mode to 'Vivid') and then back to 'home mode' (which sets the picture mode back to 'Standard').  This resets the picture mode for all inputs and apps, and the apps start to work normally again.

 

Even in 'Standard' mode I found that changing some picture settings while an app is running can trigger this bug.

 

Does anyone else experience this?

I tested 2 other 70LB7100 units, and one had the same reproducible problem with the screen going black when selecting 'Cinema' picture mode in an app, but the other did not.  All three are running the same firmware version.

 

I also tested a 55LB6300, and that one did not have the problem.

This is so annoying... The very old DLNA of my 2010 model is very much better, clean and organized than this!

from me two annoying thing in regard with the latest version of OS from my TV (42LB731), in smart share on subtitle encoding doesn't remember last option selected on a new play. For every play I need to go in this setting to change it to my needs. Also in smart share the list with files from devices is only in thumbnail mode, it take to much of screen for a few files. The classisc list mode it will be OK.

This is the most bothering thing to me also. I have a friend that have the 2013 model and he get an update that fixed this issue. When will this issue be fixed on WebOs?

Fw version 3.23.24:

 

- it happened only once. When out of stand-by the TV failed to modify volume settings though on the screen the bar was moving. I cut the volume to 0 and the TV still had sound at 20 intensity. Also the TV channel showed 2 seconds of picture than black screen. Resolved by unplugging

- this is specific to UPC Romania CI+ card. The tuner has troubles locking the frequencies and upon changing the channels I receive "no signal" message on the screen. This is fixed by moving up one channel then revert. It is not a network issue. I called UPC Romania and they measured the signal with me. There was no fluctuation on the signal. LG 47LB730v is losing signal randomly on few frequencies at the time,not the same every time. In firmware 3.23.17 the loss of signal resulted in the loss of stored channels and favorites. Also if the favorites were lost, all picture settings were lost. Since 3.23.22 this bug is less frequent but did not have the time to in depth testing. The 3.23.24 is to new. 

- Improvement suggestion: please add a soft reset function the the TV in order to restart webos without losing settings.

Correct, this site is not owned by LG but I'm sure they see all these topics. They have reached out as well on Facebook. I imagine their marketing team scopes the web for feedback and customer reviews.

I tested unutulmazfilmler and is working. The site uses partially flash, partially HTML 5 and is poorly coded. I managed to see a movie in full screen. What I noticed is that after the commercial if you are in full screen the screen gets black. The solution is to wait for the commercial to end in small screen, wait for the movie to start and then go full screen. I am on fw 3.23.24. What fw are you?

    • Question: programming a recording without the online list

      Hello, for some reason, in the region where I live (Friuli, near Venice, Italy) the Main TV Provider (RAI) does not transmit the program plan for its channels.... while all the others do... Unfortunately I'm specially interested in recording RAI events, because I'm at work when they go on air.... I own a LG 43UJ70V1 since 10 days, in absence of the program list I did not find a way to program a recording  from RAI.... I'm quite disappointed because  I was sure (and still I am)  there must be a way to plan a recording by knowing the channel, the start date/time and the stop date/time or duration... but I couldn't find it.. I saw this feature in many 15-years-old TV sets, I can't believe it's no more in this super hi-tech expensive thing... As an alternative, is it possible to download the list from the internet??    this is also a feature that was already working in 15 years ago TV's. is there any app in the LG store to work out of this? thankyou

    • Preserve custom program list after retune

      When retuning the TV program list, the "smart" option is supposed to preserve customisations made to the list.  However I find that, while locked and skipped channels are preserved, any changes I've made to the channel numbers are restored to their original defaults. This is highly frustrating as I have moved BBC 1 HD (101), for example, to channel 1 where its non-HD equivalent was, but after a rescan they move back to their original places.
      Please allow the preservation of custom lists when retuning.  Perhaps if a conflict occurs when a new channel is found, ask the user which channel they would like to occupy that slot.

    • Question: How do you use the Favorites channel list for cable?

      So I set up favorites for cable.  How do I USE them with the magic remote?  When I'm watching cable, and I click on the scroll wheel, there aren't any choices to "goto favorites" or anything like that.  How do I invoke the favorites that I created?

    • Question: Incessant "open input list" on power-up -- 65UB9500

      Has anyone in the community had issues with the incessant "Open Input List" pop-up on the bottom of the screen on power-up?   To reproduce:   - You need the TV (65UB9500) connected to a single HDMI source via an AV receiver   - Power on the source selected on the AV receiver   - Power on the receiver, with the correct input selected   - Power on the TV   The TV will go through multiple handshaking "glitches" (video goes on, then off, then back on) while the audio is playing.  At the end, the video will be showing.  Twenty seconds later "Open input list" appears, saying that there's no video signal (except there is...)   I've tried disabling SIMPLINK, HDMI control on the receiver side, everything.   What seems to trigger the issue isn't so much the presence of video, but if the TV sees a source over HDMI where it can't identify the source.  If you bring up the "input switcher" app -- you can get a description of the attached source over HDMI.  The device, if it isn't populating the list, confuses the TV.   Has anyone seen this before or addressed it?

      Unable to exit SlingTV app.  App stays open when exiting WebOS and is open when re-entering WebOS after power down. Any suggestions?

      When we feature a new root method it’s typically for a smartphone. If it’s not a smartphone then it could be a tablet, smartwatch, or an Android TV set-top box. However, more and more devices are starting to become “smart,” which essentially means they have some sort of extra software feature that previously wasn’t possible. This could be a light bulb that can be controlled by our smartphone or a TV that has applications you can install.
