Need Help re No Launcher - old looking interface


Recommended Posts

Hi All

 

New to here. I recently bought a 42LF580V ... I bought the LG Smart TV on the basis that I've used my friends one extensively and was very impressed with it - so i thought I'd get myself a nice Smart LG TV .. 

 

Well I'm really confused ... the interface looks old on mine compared to hers (she bought hers last year, i bought mine last month) ... there is no launcher with the colourful tiles or anything like that .. yes it has the Smart TV features but I was initially drawn in and impressed with the vibrant colour tiles and modern sleek and easy looking interface.

 

One thing to note -  I haven't got tv programmes on it yet - no aerial tuned, no broadband or anything like that - they are coming next week (new house) ... I have however been running off a EE Osprey Mobile Wifi Device so I've been watching Netflix and iPlayer on the tV ... and at other times hooking up my Xbox One to watch DVDs .... 

 

I really want the colourful, tile interface - why isn't it on my new LG smart TV .. can anyone advise - I'm considering taking it back .. and getting a different model

      TV model: 49 UH770T 
      I used 6000 hours. All four corners start to have struck pixels, this is very disappointing us after spending INR 1,00,000. I am sure this should have been tested products for such high value. How would I customer will recommend LG Smart TV for family and friends if the product manufacturing is not worth the money spent on?
      regards,

      The first week of June, which presents International Children’s Day (June 1) and World Environment Day (June 5), reminded us of the importance of caring for our world and its children. To properly commemorate these universal holidays and live up to LG’s steadfast commitment to CSR activities that inspire positive change, LG Kazakhstan enlisted the help of 40 children from the Almaty Regional Orphanage to make a difference in their own backyard, and hopefully learn while having heaps of fun in the process.

      The enthusiastic children selected which trees they wanted to plant in the garden, and now fifty apple, plum, apricot, cherry and pear trees are growing there and will eventually provide fresh fruit on their doorstep. Plant specialists were also on site to teach the kids which practices lead to the richest harvest and greenest environment. What’s more, to commemorate International Children’s Day, every hard-working child received a memorable souvenir as a reminder of the amazing work they did that day.

      LG Kazakhstan champions sustainable development and social responsibility through the implementation of environmental practices and charity events that improve the quality of life for locals. Recent initiatives such as LG Blood Donations Day, various CSR educational lectures for students and LG Prima Nota Fest ­­– a nationwide classical music contest for children – demonstrate LG’s tireless efforts towards creating a better life for all.

      A company must fulfill its environmental and social responsibilities to nurture a flourishing ecosystem that benefits all. Introducing technologies that minimize its carbon footprint during manufacturing and implementing inclusive solutions are deeply embedded in LG’s core value, and the company will never falter when it comes to innovating new solutions that help solve the world’s technological and social issues.

      Elista Smart LED TV specs & features 
      The new range of Elista Smart LED TVs comes in three screen sizes: 43-inch, 50-inch, and 55-inch. They offer a 4K resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels along with 1.07 billion colors.

      The 5th of June marks the annual celebration of World Environment Day, an occasion to focus on what each of us can do to preserve the natural world for future generations. Fully dedicated to the cause, LG strives to foster a better environment for all lives to thrive by means of combating climate change, facilitating circular economies and achieving energy efficiency.

      An Inspiring Message About Climate Change
      LG’s iconic ultra-high-definition digital billboard in New York City’s Times Square is one of the few screens in the world seen by hundreds of thousands of passersby each day.
      Making use of these impactful channels for this year’s World Environment Day, LG presented a poignant short film calling on united action for #OnlyOneEarth. On screen from June 2nd, the film zeroes in on many of the pressing environmental challenges that our world faces today, including climate change. The film is consecutive of LG’s environmental series, following that aired on the billboard in NYC’s Times Square earlier this year.

      A company more inclined to inspire through action rather than words, LG is making tangible efforts to combat climate change. To achieve its Zero Carbon 2030 pledge established in 2019, LG is in the entire manufacturing process from production to use by 2030.

      CES 2022 was another occasion in which LG’s efforts to scale down negative climate impact were brought to the spotlight. As a big advocate for recycling processes that bring us one step closer to a zero-carbon society, LG made sure to construct its entirely of recycled oriented strand board (OSB) plywood. No glue, paint or varnish was used during its construction and its simplified design helped streamline the recycling process when it was time to pack up.
      Taking Steps for a Circular Economy
      A circular economy is a system of production and consumption which involves processes of reusing and recycling existing materials. Through to use a cumulative total of 600,000 tons of recycled plastic from 2021 to 2030, LG aims to increase high-quality recycling and thereby push towards a circular economy in the electronics industry.

      The LG Chilseo Recycling Center (CRC) in South Korea well demonstrates LG’s commitment to better recycling resources and processes. Since its establishment in August 2001, the facility has spearheaded LG’s e-waste initiative by collecting electronic waste at the end of product lifecycles, re-using recycled plastic for the manufacturing of new components and shipping parts to the company’s home appliance plant nearby for use in new products.

      Applying its recycling practices to wider CSR activities, LG has been annually donating four hundred boxes formerly used to package large appliances to the ‘Animal Behavior Enrichment Program*’ operated at Seoul Grand Park located in Korea. The sturdy, large-sized upcycled boxes offer a great source of entertainment for zoo animals inhabiting the park, and minimize the environmental impact caused by excess waste – a total win-win for everyone.

      With the aim of fostering circularity in the company’s respective industry and expanding its influence, LG launched its in the US last year. The nationwide clothing drive successfully bestowed a second life to more than 5,000 pounds of gently used clothes.
      Partnering for an Energy-Efficient Future
      Delivering products that meet the latest energy and eco standards is an important part of LG’s environmental initiative. Partnering with ENERGY STAR® has helped to widen the company’s offerings.

      LG has been a partner of the ENERGY STAR® program since 2012. Jointly established by the US Environmental Protection Agency and the Department of Energy to promote energy-efficiency, the program provides accurate energy-consumption information for a wide range of products and devices. The company’s commitment to producing energy-efficient innovations not only benefits consumers, but the environment as well.
      At the 2022 ENERGY STAR Awards, in recognition of its dedication to energy efficiency and reducing its carbon footprint.

      Through original campaigns, raising awareness of key issues and, of course, its dedication to innovation, LG will continue to uphold its commitment to taking care of our planet and creating a better life for all. #OnlyOneEarth.
