How to change country code for LG smart TV

5 posts in this topic

Hello all,

After reading many forums how to change region for LG smart TV using  Ez-Adjust I gave up.

I am trying to change my  reading  from IL to US (area code 1793), all forums say the same thing, go to  Ez-Adjust->Area Option and change the id in the first line to the US ID.

I tried it but there is no way to change the current ID, I type the US id but nothing change, In addition I tried to change it through IN START but nothing, i was unable to change region.

I hope there is someone here that had the same problem and solved it and can help me.

I will appreciate any help.

 

 

Thanks.

hi Yonatan,

I have the exact opposite issue, I bought the LG smart TV from parallel Israeli importer (was not aware) and would like to change the location to Israel, but I do not know what is the correct 4 digits number for it.

right now the EZ-ADJUST shows the current area as:


Area: 4952,

ContinentIndex: 88
Language&Country: JA
HW: AJ/JA/IL.

 

kind regards,

Udi

found a solution

just entered the EZ-Adjust screen (using a homemade Arduino remote), then area settings then changed the area to 1000 pressed ok then restarted TV.

Tada, now all my problems solved!!!

I'm able to see the UI language in Hebrew, set the location to Israel and download all the Israeli apps from the LG store.

Hi Guys

 

I need your help.  I have a TV LG 43UF770T-TD bought in DXB (Middle-East).  I want to change the location to UK or India which ever gives me access to the best apps through the LG Store.

I am a newbie and don't know what is EZ-Adjust (Homemade Arduino remote)?.

 

Please can someone guide/help me (step-by-step) to setup/change the location.

 

Any help/assistance will be highly appreciated.

 

K/Rgds

      Hi
        Since YouTube went down a couple of days ago, I can no longer use the YouTube app on my LG smart TV.   Anyone know what the issue is or how it can be fixed?   Thanks

      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:
      http://forums.webosnation.com/lg-webos-tv/328085-hulu-plus-netflix-overseas-lg-webos-tv.html
      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:
      http://mybroadband.co.za/vb/showthread.php/687684-LG-WebOS-TV-s-cannot-change-region-to-get-Netflix-etc?p=15362222&viewfull=1#post15362222
      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:
      http://mybroadband.co.za/vb/showthread.php/687684-LG-WebOS-TV-s-cannot-change-region-to-get-Netflix-etc?p=15362222&viewfull=1#post15362222
       
      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.
