No Apps working on 49UF6430 4K TV


Recommended Posts

My wife and daughters gave me a 49UF6430 4K TV for Christmas. None of the apps work. I've spent 7 hrs with LG Tech Support isolating the problem. Tech support has concluded that due to a software (OS?) malfunction, none of the apps recognize that the TV is successfully connected to the internet, which results in the following (erroneous) error message: "Network Error (2). The TV is not connected to the internet." This, despite the fact that the browser is operable. Tech support stated that this bug affects ALL TV's with the "UF" model designation in the 3rd and 4th character of the model number. Tech support is run by a contract Help Desk in Manilla. They assured me that they have communicated the bug to LG software support, and that a software/OS patch should be forthcoming, time/date uncertain. I thought I would give them about a week before I bundle up the whole thing, return it to Target, and pursue a Samsug purchase.

 

It seems strange to me that a glitch this big would not have been noticed by production QC. Has anyone else experienced this problem???

 

Thanks ahead for any light you can shed on this subject.

I hit the same problem, as have others (see some of the more recent threads).

 

In my (and other) case, it appears to be an issue with Comcast - with my TV connected through a T-Mobile hotspot, I was able to access the store and download apps.  However, with the TV connected through my Comcast ISP, I got the same "Network Error (2)".

 

Are you also connected through Comcast as your ISP?

Since the LG contract Helpdesk in Manila decided the only fix would have to be implemented by LG software support and sent LG a patch request request for the same, Juanita at Target Customer Service in Nicaragua recommended it was time for an exchange. I then went through a 24 hr saga of discovering at 3 different Target stores that computer inventory <> actual inventory, and that while all the computer inventory TV's were in the 49UF64xx series, none were the "6430". Turned out that the next day my local Target in Auburn, CA had a new one the had received early that morning in their regular shipment. High praise and accolades to Carolyn, AJ, & Veronica of the Auburn store for turning my vexations ordeal into a happy ending!!!!

      Just purchased this and the set up is driving me nuts. I have a Sony reciever that I use for my audio out as well as HDMI device switching. The output of the reciever is going to HDMI 1. The TV audio out is set to HDMI (ARC) device.  When watching devices directly connected to the reciever (cable box, roku, DVD, Tivo), audio out is fine. If I try switching to the smart menu or the antenna, there is no audio going from the TV back to the reciever. I also have a Roku I can use for streaming, but not for OTA.  Should I just route everything directly into the TV, and use the optical out to get sound to the reciever? Also since setting up the TV and remote there is strange interaction btween the TV and the reciever. I noticed that my cable box, dvd, and roku all show up devices attached to HDMI 1, and clicking on that device will change the input on the reciever, but I have no control over the reciever from the LG remote, volume and muting buttons have no effect. Also there soesn't seem to be anyway to control my Fios cable box, a Motorola HD QIp 7100-1. I have the IR blaster sitting right next to it

      When I open the DSTV Now app on my lg tv I get the error “We’re sorry Something went wrong. Please try again.” 
      I have re installed the app, checked for firmware updates and even reset TV but the error keeps on appearing. 
      Any suggestions on how to fix this? Is it a tv issue or is it the app which is faulty?

      I recently updated the firmware on my  LG43UH610V.  Now I constantly get "Wired Lan cable disconnected" / "Wired network is connected" messages even while watching a video file from my NAS. The TV is connected and using the network while getting these messages. It has always been on a fixed IP address on the LAN.

      Every time I try to download an app on my LG Smart Tv, even though I’m already logged in it prompts me “you need to log in to install this app, do you want to log in?”. When I choose yes, it takes me to another screen and says “select account to log in with”, but my account is already selected (indicated by a green tick on the top right of my user icon). Even when I click okay on my control, I can’t proceed from this page. I essentially can’t download any apps because I can’t move on from this screen. Is there a solution or other method to download apps?

      Hi Everyone,
       
      OK, so what does it take to have full Chromecast support in LG TVs (webOS)?
      a. Either builtin support.
      b. Via webOS app.
       
      The goal / use is simple as any other Chromecast device / TV: be able to say to "hey Google, play this video/music from service-X to LG-TV".
       
      Looking forward to good news and your thoughts.
       
      Thanks,
