LG TV change country code webos 1.x


LG-TV

Question

It's been noted on various forums that some LG TV owners can change the country code through the ez adjust service menu.

For example:

It appears the instructions covered in the link above are for webos 2.0 versions.

 

 

Changing country code has allowed many users to download apps not available in your own country.

 

A small amount of forums state that some LG TV owners cannot change the country code through the ez adjust service menu.

For example:

Some of those owners report a different menu, most likely those users NOT using webos 2 and are using webos 1.0 or webos 1.5

 

In Australia on my TV I see -

7. Country Group
  Country Group Code 19
  Country Group AJ
  Country --

8. Area option
  Area code 263
  Wi-fi Frequency 7
  Lang Gr. ALL
  Teletext Lang Gr. W_EU
  I II Save On
  HDEV Off
  MONO Off
  Location 0
  Isolator 0

I found that the South African user posted that they had a similar menu:

Comparison between Australian and South African users posting about the issue -

Area Option

Area Code -

South Africa: 259
Australia: 263

Wi-fi frequency -

South Africa: 3
Australia: 7


I note that the difference between the Area Code between the two countries (263-259) equals 4.
Further, the difference between the Wi-fi frequency between the two countries (7-3) equals 4.

I suspect that it is possible to change the country and thereby download apps from another country.
I think the USA Area code is 02.

 

Anyone figured out how?

 

Perhaps posting up your Country Group Code and Area Code (IF you have webos 1.x) may be a step towards this process.

      Hi, since I think yesterday I have an issue with HBO GO - it just shows unsupported device and that is it. According to their website, WebOS 3.5+ should be supported, I have LG uh6107 and in menu it shows SW version  5.60.15, so I think it should be ok.. does anybody have the same issue?

      Our current app is available on 4K/UHD LG television models running the following system software:
      webOS 3.0 webOS 3.5 webOS 4.0 webOS 5.0 No 720p or 1080p (“full HD”) sets are supported for our current app at this time.
      Note: Due to root certificate limitations with the device OS itself, only webOS 5.0+ devices support secure connections with a personal Plex Media Server. To allow connections to a personal server, devices running earlier webOS versions must be set to Allow Insecure Connections in the TV app settings and the Plex Media Server must be set to Preferred for the Secure Connections preference.

      I bought a new 77 inch OLED tv a year ago. Ever since then it has randomly reset itself when using apps, (Youtube, Sirius, Netflix, doesn't matter). Basically the tv freezes, closes out the app and goes black as if the power has been cut, and then restarts to HDMI 1 just as it does whenever the TV is first turned on. I have had a technician visit 4 times already and he's replaced the main board, the wifi board, the remote control and the remote sensor. Basically he's replaced everything except the display and the power cord. Of course we've made sure the firmware is up to date and done many hard resets and nothing works.  I'll add one more thing that happened last week for the first time, but it happened twice so it is definitely not a coincidence. I was watching a movie on Disney Plus and a half second before my phone rang, the movie stopped like before, but this time the app restarted in stead of the entire tv restarting. This exact same thing happened 15 minutes later, a half second before another call came in so it was not a coincidence. My phone is android with Verizon fwiw, but of course I get calls all of the time and this only happened this one day. Since almost everything has been replaced I had already been thinking that some kind of electromagnetic interference may be at issue, but this is not my specialty. Has anyone else experienced this?
