Netflix won't work on an LG 55EG920V TV set




I'm experiencing big trouble with the Netflix app and I begin to lose patience. Some help would be much appreciated!

Before first use, the TV said an update was required. LG Content Store also claimed v.1.3.76 (24/11/2015) was available.

Thus, I updated, signed in and everything worked fine: I could play anything I wanted to, including 4K content, without any trouble.

In the evening, Iput the TV in stand by mode and the next day when I tried to use the Netflix app again, it was saying "We're having trouble playing this title right now. Please try gain or select a different title." with ALL the titles, while Internet web browsing and YouTube worked perfectly fine.

I tried to reload the app: it didn't work.

I tried to exit (using the 'exit' function in the app) and start again the app: it didn't work.

I tried to sign out and sign in again: it didn't work.

I tried to restart my internet box: it didn't work.

I tried to unplug the TV for a few minutes: it worked, but it got exactly the same issue the next time I put the TV in stand by mode. Plus, it doesn't work all the time.

I tried to reset the TV to factory default, reset everything, re-update the app: it worked, but once again the issue reappear every time I put the TV in stand by mode.

I tried to go to 'My page' to check if I could remove the app to reinstall it completely, but it seems I can't.

Netflix customer service was no help, LG's no help either.

Any idea?

Many thanks in advance.



TV software version: 03.01.25

TV country set to France (where I live).

Netflix app version: 1.3.69 according to the Netflix app settings menu...while the LG Content Store claims 1.3.76..strange!

TV connected to my internet box through Ethernet

Cable internet provider (tested 100/5Mbps from one of my MacBook Pro)

Everything works fine on my PS4, my two MacBooks Pro and my smartphone.

      Hi everyone, I'm Chloe and I just signed up. I'll cut straight to the chase. I'm currently using the LG TV (webos 3.0) of a friend while she's away for a few months and I constantly get prompted to update the firmware. She says she's never updated it as she doesn't care and everything was working fine anyway, and told me to just disregard it. So, I'm not gonna do it, but that reminder is doing my head in as it pops up every time I turn the TV back on.

      Since I couldn't find anything in settings to turn it off, last month I blocked a bunch of addresses at router level and it did work for several weeks, as I wouldn't get the reminder any longer.

      Here's what I blocked after sniffing out addresses that the TV checked out right before the reminder appeared:
      link hidden, please login to view Now, the message has started popping up again over the past few days. Yesterday I tried adding a bunch of other addresses, but no dice.

      Do you have any suggestions about how to definitely kill that reminder once and for all? Thanks in advance.

      LG TV  SJ800V.  (2018 UK model).  Was  06.00.20  then became  06.00.25 and made no difference to this issue:
      Search page on YouTube had a microphone symbol.  This enabled Voice Search.
      Just recently, (whilst being 06.00.20),  MICROPHONE VANISHED.  It can't be got back.  I know of two other SJ800V TVs  with the same issue.
      I know of another two similar LG TVs - but different model numbers - which have no problem.  
      LG says it's probably a YouTube issue. Tried uninstalling and re-installing YouTube but no good... 
      What can be done? This TV is only 4 years old and I and I really don't see why I should have to  go and buy a new one...

      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?
