Can anyone tell me why i cant update flash player??

I bought this TV mainly for movie/football streaming and i cant even update Flash to watch

Can you give me a link where it says Flash was available or ever likely to be available on this TV?

These streams you are trying to illegally watch - have you approached the people who stream these to ask if they can stream in a format that you can watch on your TV - specifically bought to watch illegal streams?

Good luck with all of that.

OMFG, I cant beleive that I did it again .. NO FLASH Enabled Browser.


Back in 2011 I bought 55 inch 3d led TV and suprise no flash player support for web browser.

Just bought another LG TV 49LF6300 and guess what NO FLASH SUPPORT STILL  ...!!!!!


For god sake LG get with the program..   Hello Flash only one of the webs largest technologies on most website etc etc.


I tried to return the TV to the retailer for refund but No Luck.    My house is full of LG Product. I will no longer by LG Products if this is the standard of there technology.

It is not hard to get an app made that supports flash browser for there web-os  on these tv's 


PEOPLE POWER  if everybody lodges a complaint and stops buying LG perhaps they might PULL their fingers out and do something about it.


Very Unhappy customer here .

Seriously WHY do you automatically go to illegal watching situations??? I bought subscription to baseball & cannot watch due to flash plug-in problem. So I'm about to ask for help in here. So can some one please help me? Do I get preferential help if I'm not illegally watching baseball?

I now sit with the same problem - kind of a let down!

Our local stations have made it easy for us to stream instead of running it through our old architecture...which is a first for SA, but i didn't think i would be challenged with such a stupid problem as flash...

Is there not webOS apps that can resolve web browser streaming?

Don't get me wrong - LG is a great TV, and WebOS3 is a fast and convenient OS.

But NOT supporting Flash is a killer!


I spent a thousand dollars (thank goodness the space on the wall was too small for bigger TVs) to learn that I cannot watch my PAID subscription because of the lack of support for FLASH!


The bottom line: I would not buy any LG again, and I will strongly advise that people avoid it, since you (LG) intentionally restrict users from being free to fully enjoy it.


I would also advise users to stop caring about what or who is licensed or not. I have paid for hardware, I have paid for services, and I expect to get value for my money.

I'm fully agreed on above comments. But no luck. No any support from LG team. Same issue with my LG web os TV. That is the deference between Samsung and LG. LG is far behind on technology.

What a f****** TV. Can't install falshplayer

So maybe I am late to the party on reading these posts about LG TV's as I downloaded and signed into HBOGO on my new smart TV but receive an error message Flash plug-in installation is not supported on this device.... !  So that is it? nothing I can do to get around this and play HBOGO on my LG smart TV?

Bemused myself as to why these TV's don't support flash player yet you can watch YouTube on the tv which uses flash player,explain that one LG...

Actually YouTube will display videos in HTML5 is your application/device supports it.  So the YouTube app if created by themselves either renders HTML5 or they have baked in Flash support, I am going to take a guess at it being the former.

      From heart rate monitors in smartwatches to accelerometers and gyroscopes for measuring an athlete’s movement or swing, technology takes sports to a whole new level of precision. In the world of esports, advanced tech isn’t just something that’s good to have, it’s a necessity. And in this world, LG UltraGear hardware has developed a reputation as the best gear for victory.

      According to , the gaming PC and monitor market expanded rapidly in 2020, reaching 55 million units sold for a year-on-year increase of 26.8 percent. And with more people than ever working and playing from home, demand for better PC hardware experienced huge growth with sales of LG’s gaming monitors more than tripling between 2019 and 2020.
      Let’s take a look at what sets LG UltraGear gaming monitors apart from the rest.

      Compared to other panel technologies such as Twisted Nematic (TN) or Vertical Alignment (VA), LG’s In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel provides a wider viewing angle with minimal color distortion as well as a wide color gamut with excellent contrast. LG was the to introduce an IPS monitor with one millisecond Gray-to-Gray (GTG) response time, a significant advantage over the 20-30 milliseconds of regular monitors. One millisecond means fewer distracting visual effects such as ghosting for a smoother, faster gaming experience. And with a refresh rate of up to 144Hz, ultra-high screen resolution and exceptionally lifelike picture quality, it’s easy to see why LG UltraGear has become an esport favorite.

      Currently there are in the UltraGear monitor lineup including a new 32-inch (model 32GP850) featuring the advanced Nano IPS display technology. Later this year, LG will debut the industry’s first 34-inch monitor with NVIDIA G-SYNC® ULTIMATE built-in for the highest level of compatibility with NVIDIA graphics cards.

      LG makes a great effort to understand what gaming fans really want. One way is through the UltraGear Advisory Board, an online community of approximately 200 gamers from around the world managed by LG. Members of the board have a voice in developing new products, advising on both technical as well as design aspects.

      And LG UltraGear gaming monitors are not only the ideal choice for a home gaming setup, it’s a brand in high demand by professionals who game for a living. LG is currently with Gen.G Esports, one of the top esports organizations, to support their League of Legends Champions Korea (LCK) team. Using LG UltraGear monitors, the team is already .

      Built for a better gaming experience to deliver an edge over the competition, LG’s UltraGear gaming monitors have been the preferred gear for many gamers since its launch in 2018. So whether you’re a pro gamer or just a casual player, LG UltraGear can provide the right gear for the job to make the difference between victory and defeat.

      Hi LG
      When playing a Dolby Vision file encoded in MKV container format, the image is green/purple in colour. A quick googling says, this occurs due the default media player in WebOS not able to decode Dolby Vision MKV container files properly.
      When will this be fixed?

      I have a 50NANO79SNA, built in 2020.   After ignoring the message for some time I finally decided to allow it to do an automatic firmware update.  Started the process then went to bed.
      In the morning the TV appeared to have hung up - it was turned on but had no picture, no audio and did not respond to the remote.  I turned the TV off using the manual power button then powered it back on... I got the LG power-on sound, but again no picture.  Powering it off then back on again resulted in no sound, no picture and a power light that flashes 3 times each time it turns on.  It does respond to the remote (for power on/off commands.)
      Is there a way to force-reload the firmware over USB if you don't have a picture?

      HBO Max came out recently and unfortunately they haven't built an app for lg webOS TVs yet. 
      The following devices are supported by HBO Max. If a device is supported, you'll find the HBO Max app in the app store.
      Android phones and tablets (with Android OS 5+) Android TV (OS 5+) Apple TV (4th gen and later) Chromebooks Chromecast iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch (with iOS 12.2+) PC and Mac computers PlayStation 4 Samsung TV (2016+) Xbox One So if you have any of these devices hooked up to your LG webOS TV your solution is to use one of these methods.

      The firmware that powers your LG Ultra HD 4K Smart TV with webOS should be updated from time to time to enhance your experience and improve its operation. Thankfully, this can be done easily and quickly, right at home.
      Watch this quick video to learn more. Or follow the easy steps below to get started.
      Firmware updates don't happen frequently, so you should be fine checking for updates every other month.
      Before you do anything, make sure you have an Ethernet cord connected directly from your router to your television. Wireless Internet connections are not reliable enough for firmware updates.
      Use this diagram if you need help getting set up:

      Press the MENU Click SYSTEM SETTINGS Then ABOUT Then SYSTEM UPDATES You'll be advised that your system is currently up to date or requested to select CHECK NOW for the latest update. If a new version is available, it downloads automatically. FIRMWARE UPDATES WILL ALSO UPDATE LG ULTRA HD 4K SMART TV AND LG APPS AT THE SAME TIME.
