Slow Operation


Recommended Posts

Hello All,

 

I just recenly purchased a 55LB6500 and have noticed some issues:

 

1. It lags after start up; giving me a message that asks me to wait before I can use the smart features.

2. It continuously lags and has problems connecting to the internet, sometimes my apps wont open giving me network error messages.

 

Is this something normal? Can I make it faster?

I've been reading some posts online not in favor of this OS for Smart TVs and a lot of people are upset.

I am considering trying to get this SmartTV changed for another brand if these issues are something that cannot be fixed at the moment (they appear to be as several other people are complaining online about this WebOS)

 

Thank you

 

Jonathan

There are definitely complaints about the slowness. Tomorrow, LG is announcing webOS 2.0 at CES which is geared to be better and faster, addressing these complaints. However,  I'm not sure if current webOS TVs will get the upgrade. It would be great if they did because LG sold over 5 million TVs with webOS to date.

This is in Dutch, it mean that the LG 49UB850V become the new update for the webOs 2.0 in 2015

When the update come we dont no but it is coming. :)

Geachte heer H,Zuidema,

Bedankt voor uw email.

Op dit model de 49UB850V zal er inderdaad een nieuwe update uitkomen van de webos besturingssysteem.

Helaas hebben wij niet de exacte datum wanneer de webos 2.0 zal uitkomen.
Zodra het beschikbaar is zal u een melding op uw tv ontvangen dat er een nieuwe update beschikbaar is. :) 

Met vriendelijke groet,

van Daal I.

Yes, if you plan on using the smart features of the TV, I would consider returning it.  WebOS for me, is sometimes unusable until I reboot the TV.  It lags so bad that it can take 10 seconds to respond to a command.  LG is NOT updating any WebOS TV's purchased in 2014 to version 2.0.

 

They have really screwed their customers with this.  Let's hope we all learn from this and not purchase any LG devices in the future.  My next purchase will NOT be LG.

as mentioned in other post, i spoke to LG NZ today (actually it was LG Australia), who said there is no decision as yet on OS2.0, whether it will be applied to 2014 models retrospectively or not.  The guy didn't exactly sound certain however, and given the rev up i'd just given him about misrepresentation of the product given geographic limitations, maybe he wasn't game to also tell me that yep, a TV that is less than a year old won't get a firmware/software update to improve functionality.  Logically I guess that want us to buy a new TV ever year (yeh right).... but I said to him that this would be the last LG i'd buy if OS2.0 was not applied to 2014 models.  So, time will tell I suppose.  Lets cross our fingers that LG does that right thing on this point.

 

What model Samsung, I saw the new 2015 models at CES have something similar to WebOS, but not the 2014 models - were you able to get a new model already?

      Model: 42UB700T-TH version 03.02.25. Has not got any software update since  3-4 Years - What a mess...…
      This TV is just a random box now... Once purchased this model - new version from LG was introduced; making this just a playing box...
      None of the recent OTT's can be installed..
      We need a fix or else some solution to it.
      Its really a disheartening experience after being loyal to this brand in any appliance we purchase.

      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 hope LG will consider to enable the Disney+ Hotstar Apps for Model 2016 LG TV. My LG TV Model is 55UH617T.  I've raised this concern few times and hope LG will take necessary action.

      Edit: well, had to reset defaults, fixed after that. 
      Hello. in recent days I've updated my LG OLED65CXRLA to 03.23.35 firmware, after that HDR won't work at all.
      I own this tv since February, and never had any issues with it, and for the first time I've encountered problem and serious one at that,
      Before said update HDR worked without any issues from any source - PC, PS4/Xbox, TV's apps like YouTube and Plex. After update HDR doesn't work from any of said source. 
      How it happens: when I launch any HDR content, tv blicks, in upper right corner appears HDR notice, but picture becomes very dark. It's the same as if for example you try to run any YouTube's HDR clip on display without HDR support.
