Regional Factory settings on 55UF840

Question

Hello,

 

I brought a 55UF840 TV from Dubai here to Greece and i found out that there is no option to select Greece (or any European country for that matter) when selecting the country. It shows only MENA region countries. I want to download apps etc but i cannot.

 

Is there any way to either update the system settings to show European countries or a way to bypass this in order to download apps (Netflix etc?)

 

When I try to put UAE as a country and change the time as well, it shows an error and doesn't continue.

 

Any help welcome.

 

Thanks

imet

I was in a similar situation about 18 months ago. There are suggested workarounds that I found, that required purchasing a Logitec or Harmony remote control to re-programme the region setting

 

But really, its not worth all the effort and uncertainty and the best solution is simply to buy a media box with Kodi loaded and then you will be able to stream anything, and there will be more choices, not just the ones LG let you install.

      I know the (country) location of my TV can be changed through the (hidden) service menu. I know how to access this menu. But where would I find a list of country codes? I specifically need the country code for The Netherlands. (As far as I know 3122 is for UK and 3124 for Italy). Any other codes would be welcome.
