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.

      The built in Web Browser will not play Videos on SOME websites after updating to WebOS Version 04.40.25 and 04.40.70. The web sites otherwise work fine. Here is an example that won't play since the 04.40.25 update ...

      I have recently purchased an LG C2 Oled TV which I connected with my Samsung HW-Q800B 5.1 soundbar via eArc HDMI. When I select "Passthrough" as a Digital Sound Output on LG TV sound advanced settings, there is an obvious sound response delay around 3 seconds when I pause and unpause the movie on Netflix or Prime video streaming apps on LG TV. For example, when I start the movie, the video starts and sound starts 2-3 secs later. When I pause the movie, the sound continues for 2-3 secs after the video has been stopped. There is no any lip sync issue, just this response delay of the sound from the soundbar. This happens only on LG TV Apps. If I connect to an external HDMI device such as AMAZON Fire Stick 4K, there is no such sound delay issue neither on Netflix neither on Prime Video. 
      Thus, the problem seems to be on LG TV apps.
      If I change the Digital Sound Output to "Auto" instead of "Passthrough" the issue is gone but sound quality is not as good as with Passthrough selected. So I do not want this to be my option.
      I would appreciate if someone could come with a solution on this.

      It would be amazing to be able to use the Philips HUE and synchronize the lights with the video and audio of the LG TV.

      Hi Team,
      After update of LG WebOS to 04.40.70, Amazon Prime Video app on my LG Smart TV stopped working. It started giving error :
      Internet Connectivity Problem
      There is an internet connection problem. Check the device's internet settings, data cables, or try to resetting your router. Also, turning your device off, and then back on might fix the problem. For further assistance, please contact Amazon customer service at www.amazon.com/videohelp
      The internet/wifi connection is fine and all the other apps are working without any issue on the LG smart TV.
      I have even tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Prime video app, but that didn't help.
      Has anyone faced this issue ? Is there a solution available for this issue.
      Thanks & Regards,

      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.
