42LB652T NEW FIRMWARE AVAILABLE !!

14 posts in this topic

Hi to all who was waiting for some news/updates from LG for this model of TV.

 

The new firmware was added three days ago. link to firm: http://www.lg.com/za/support-product/lg-42LB652T

Difference between before and after in software/OS version.

 

Before

After

post-3526-0-14575300-1428739679_thumb.jpg

 

 

 

WebOS ver is still 1.X

 

Hopefully LG will work out to develop better OS in future for this model. So far the OS cannot be used for internet browsing or similar activities, it looks to me that this software is only "Beta" version.

 

Will test and see what is the difference between the old OS and the new one.

 

Kind Regards,

Then why on earth do they give instructions on how to do it via USB?

I have used USB method on last 3 updates with no issues whatsoever.

It is entirely up to yourself if you choose that option.

In my post the details i have provided are for TV model 42LB625T, be careful choosing the right firmware!

As Jimbo1876 explain in his post the procedure how to upgrade firm from USB is very well explained on LG website.

1. Download the archive file.

2. Unzip

3. Create folder on the USB drive and name it "LG_DTV"

4. Copy the file/s to USB drive in the previously created folder "LG_DTV".

5. Turn off the TV from remote

6. Plug in any of the USB ports or in service USB if it's exist.

7. Turn the TV on.

8. When "USB connected" message will apire select from the dialog "stay".

9. Last "USB update" message will apire chose "install".

What for around 10-15 minutes and than restart the TV.

Please note that I don't take any responsibility if something goes wrong while updating the firmware.

Regards,

I'm not sure what will happen if the power goes down during upgrade, but I guess the TV will not work. Therefore I haven't notice that the TV has some sort of Bios or something similar but for sure is not erasing the old OS before fully install the new one. BTW I forgot to mention in my previous post that you can check the status of the update in the menu while updating.

With the new firmware everything works well; therefore there is no huge difference between the two versions of the firmware only the TV works faster and some bugs are fixed.

Below is my opinion about the TV.

TV quality builds material: very good.

Picture quality: awesome.

Sound quality: awesome.

Menu response: OK

Remote control: magic remote is awesome.

Switch On time: OK

WebOS: the most useless OS I ever seen in my life, I give up using the OS long time ago.

Updates of firm: I think that will never happened.

      Hallo,
      i am trying to update my LG 55UF850T to webOS 3.x due to UHDTV and HDR compatibility. 
      Update via menu not possible. It shows 2.2.1 as the most current version.
      I downloaded 3.x via the website and copied it to a USB stick as mentioned in the guideline.
      Now the problem: USB stick is recognized as a Smart Share device but the firmware and folder do not trigger the update process.
       
      Question: is there a  technical guideline on how to proceed, e.g. Via the hidden Support menu? Any other ideas or procedures that I can trigger?
      please advice.

      Dear all,
      Have my 2 month old LG E6 connected to my amp using ARC via HDMI and i used that to send the audio from Amazon/Netflix/Youtube apps on the TV back to my amp.
      The audio is fine for everything but YouTube, which is out of sync.
      I've tried using the audio sync adjustment on the TV but can't get it right despite the adjustment.
      I've heard others on other forums complain of the same issue with this app.
      Is there somewhere I can raise an issue with LG for this problem?
      I wonder how often the youtube WebOS app is updated, maybe a new one is due soon?
       
      Thanks all!

      UPDATING YOUR FIRMWARE
       
      The firmware that powers your LG Ultra HD 4K Smart TV with webOS should be updated from time to time to enhance your experience and improve its operation. Thankfully, this can be done easily and quickly, right at home.
      Watch this quick video to learn more. Or follow the easy steps below to get started.
       
       
      HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO UPDATE MY FIRMWARE?
      Firmware updates don't happen frequently, so you should be fine checking for updates every other month.
      HOW DO I CHECK FOR, AND DOWNLOAD, AVAILABLE FIRMWARE UPDATES?
      Before you do anything, make sure you have an Ethernet cord connected directly from your router to your television. Wireless Internet connections are not reliable enough for firmware updates.
      Use this diagram if you need help getting set up:

      ONCE YOUR TV HAS A WIRED CONNECTION, DO THE FOLLOWING:
      Press the MENU Click SYSTEM SETTINGS Then ABOUT Then SYSTEM UPDATES You'll be advised that your system is currently up to date or requested to select CHECK NOW for the latest update. If a new version is available, it downloads automatically. FIRMWARE UPDATES WILL ALSO UPDATE LG ULTRA HD 4K SMART TV AND LG APPS AT THE SAME TIME.

      I have had my 55" 4k tv for just over a year now and am finding that it plays less and less MP4 files. I believe it may be because they are h265 files. Is it really hard to update the TV. If I had known that it will not play recent files I would have considered buying a different TV. It also seems to have a problem playing some MKV files as well.
