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!

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: Bought TV in China & moved, want to region switch but cannot

      Hello I bought my TV this year in China and I've moved to HK where I can access Netflix & Youtube etc etc, however, I'm unable to change the region settings on my TV as it only allows me to select China under the country list. Is there anyway that I can update the OS manually in order to region switch as the China apps are very limited..   Thankss

    • [pivotCE]Forums fix for webOS Nation, Communities fix forthcoming (hopefully)

      If you have Forums and/or Communities for the TouchPad, you’ll notice webOS Nation forums aren’t working. The good news is, there’s a fix for it for Forums. The bad news is there’s no fix for it in Communities…yet. webOS Nation forum user, Fred Zyphal, noted the Forums app wasn’t connecting to the webOS Nations forums anymore and others jumped in to confirm and to test some solutions. It turns out Forums just needs the entry for webOS Nation updated from http to https. So swipe away your old entry for it and add a new one with the “s” after http. Communities seems to be more difficult and a fix is still in work. You can load Forums on your TouchPad if you want but it only shows in the phone emulator view. If Communities can’t be saved it may be possible to format the Forums app to take up the whole screen on the TouchPad though. More to come on that. #webOSforever No related posts.

    • It's Official Palm Is Back!

      Palm makes a comeback! TCL to 're-create' the brand - The Chinese consumer-electronics company wants to resurrect a once-beloved smartphone brand.   LAS VEGAS -- The Palm name, once a leader in the smartphone world, gets another chance at life thanks to Chinese consumer-electronics company TCL.   TCL said on Tuesday that it had acquired the rights to the Palm name and would "re-create" a new company based in Silicon Valley. The company added that it would use input from Palm's fan base, touting that it would be the largest crowd-sourced project in the industry. TCL has been attempting to build up its brand and awareness in the US. The company is largely known for selling low-cost televisions, but it also has a mobile-device division, which uses the Alcatel OneTouch name. By utilizing the Palm name, which has a long history in the mobile world with the original Treo and Pilot handhelds, and later the WebOS-powered Pre, TCL is attempting to make a splash.   TCL's deal follows Lenovo's much splashier acquisition of another storied mobile company, Motorola, as a way to break into more-developed markets like the US. Palm, however, has been an inactive brand while Motorola was still selling phones before the deal. Still, there may be some nostalgia factor left that could help with TCL's profile.   "Palm has always carried a lot of affect and emotions," the company said in a statement.   The company said it would provide more details and a timeline of the project at a later date.   TCL acquired the name from Hewlett-Packard, which acquired Palm in 2010 with the grand vision of utilizing its WebOS mobile operating system across many products. HP ultimately mothballed its consumer mobile ambitions.   TCL isn't likely to use WebOS. In 2013, LG purchased the WebOS platform, which now powers its smart televisions.   TCL intends to use the Palm name for smartphones, but it's unclear how the company will juggle the Palm name with Alcatel OneTouch, which is making its own push to increase its visibility in the US.   Source: http://www.cnet.com/news/palm-makes-a-comeback-tcl-to-recreate-the-brand/     So here is the question....what Palm gadgets will we see and what OS will they use? Will it be Open webOS, LuneOS, some form of open source webOS, Android? We'll have to wait and see, but for all you palm webOS fans and die hard webOS original adopters, this may bring back some nostalgia. I myself owned 2 pixis, a pre and pre2, and also still have my Touchpad!

    • Webosdummies renamed Open webOS Forums!

      With webOS moving to an open source platform and getting a renaming to Open webOS 1.0 in September by HP, we secured the domain name openwebosforum.com, and are officially as of today, changing the name of this site from webOS Dummies to Open webOS Forum, a forum for webOS enthusiasts! We hope to draw in some more webOS fans wth this name change and reach a new audience. It's a new name for a new generation of webOS platform changes, we look forward to following Open webOS and it's development.

      I use Enigma2 for watching TV, recording etc.
      Is WebOS an alternative?
      Enigma2 can:
      Unlimited number of simultaneous recordings.
      Streaming (Intranet and Internet)
      Softcam (for pay-TV card) <= Alternative: support for "Unicam" etc.
      NAS instead of USB HDD.
      Unencrypted recordings.

      LG Signed a deal with Luxoft yesterday to bring webOS to new verticals such as automotive, robotics, and the smart home. Very interesting development and a clear expansion of how webOS will be used in the future for not only TVs, projectors, and appliances. Below is the press release from the Luxoft website.

      Next-generation webOS operating system will target vehicles, robots and smart devices
      IFA, Berlin, GERMANY -- 31 August, 2018 -- Luxoft Holding, Inc (NYSE:LXFT), a global IT service provider, has partnered with LG Electronics Inc., a multinational electronics company, to help create the next generation webOS as part of a strategy to extend its capabilities and ecosystem into the automotive, robotics and smart home verticals.
      LG Electronics has previously deployed webOS in over 60 million LG smart TVs and digital signage displays worldwide and this install base is growing rapidly. As a strategic partner, Luxoft is bringing technical assets as well as experience in designing and deploying software platforms for a wide variety of products and services.
      “Thanks to our collaboration with Luxoft, we are able to bring webOS into automotive and beyond,” said I.P. Park, Chief Technology Officer at LG Electronics. “Luxoft is providing a substantial technological contribution to webOS and has also greatly enhanced our ability to deploy it into new industries.”
      Luxoft will lead the deployment of webOS into the new, targeted sectors, beginning with automotive. Initially focusing on digital cockpit development – which includes infotainment, navigation, and other features that are human-car interaction-centric – Luxoft and LG Electronics also plan to introduce the new platform into the robotics and smart home sectors.
      “We’re already leveraging LG Electronics’ thriving smart TV eco-system to customize and enhance webOS so it provides an innovation canvas for car manufacturers to develop next-generation autonomous vehicles,” said Mikael Söderberg, Senior Technical Director, Automotive at Luxoft. “Having access to webOS and its cloud services platform will enable car makers to design and develop better customer experiences for autonomous mobility services.”
      With both technology and specific industry expertise, the Luxoft and LG partnership is helping provide more ways for businesses across multiple sectors to digitize.
      “Underlying this partnership is a shared desire to make it easier for manufacturers to innovate with technology. This platform gives them the flexibility to make digital changes. This will help accelerate the mobility revolution, improve human-robotic interactions and make smart devices even smarter,” concluded Dmitry Loschinin, President and CEO of Luxoft.
