New Firmware 5.00.04 Broke my TV!!!!


Pioneer123

Question

My TV has just automatically installed the new firmware rev 5.00.04 and now the HDMI connection is dropping out every 5-10 minutes to my AV amp. It never did this before and it basically makes the TV unwatchable.

 

​I have even changed the AV amp to verify its the TV and it still does it. A factory reset hasn't fixed it either.

 

My TV is a 79" 79UB980T and I am in Singapore.

 

Anyone have any suggestions for a cure?

 

Cheers

Well I had the LG technician come over to my place this week as TV is still under warranty and he didn't even know about Rev 5.00.04!!!!

Safe to say that until a fix comes from LG don't hold your breath. I told the guy if it isn't fixed within a month then the TV goes back and I want a refund.....

My 65UB950V was automatically updated from 04.55.55 which mostly worked with the exceptoin for Rasperry Pi 2 w/OSMC.tc w/Kodi. Well, after upgrade, OSMC hdmi (remote) works, but  over a period of 1-2 hours TV webOS becomes slower until I have to turn it off and on again to make webos respond.  Seems like a typical memory leak issue. Asked LG if I could downgrade, but that is not an option. He asked me to turn of SimpleLink too, which doesn't make any difference.  Suggestions?   Someone mentioned 5.00.12 firmware is available?

I have 47LB750T and recently it auto updated to software version 05.00.04, I now get "app out of memory" error very frequently and the TV restarts every time that error occurs. Called the tech support and was told to do a factory reset but it did not help at all. There is a version 04.62.50 on LG's support page but I was unable to downgrade using the method in the manual.

 

A search on Google took me to this website

      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 just got a new QNED LG to replace 2021 Nano tv
      the problem is I can’t move my HD channels down to  channels 1 to5.
      the program manager does not have the function to move channels like my old Nano tv which is only a year older.
      is there anyway I can get around this strange function?

      CBS Catchup, Discovery+, POP player, and UKTV Play always need updating. Even seconds after you just updated them. It started doing this a few days ago.
      Who can I contact to get this fixed?
      Since the "apps need updating" notification now always appears when I switch the TV on, I now have no way of telling if anything really does need updating other than going into the LG content store, clicking Apps, clicking My Apps, and visually checking.

      I output the sound from my LG 75UJ657A to external speakers through a bluetooth connection, but it doesn't automatically connect to the bluetooth device when I turn the TV on. Whenever I cycle the TV off and, then, back on, the TV asks if I want to connect to the bluetooth device, and I have to select "yes" with the remote. My smart phone automatically connects to all the bluetooth devices I've set it up with. When I start my car, my phone connects automatically to the car stereo/phone system, and it does the same with other bluetooth speakers I have. This is what I want my TV to do.
      How do I get my LG 75UJ657A to automatically connect to the bluetooth device I've set up with it?
