after no updates for approx. 2 years, the TV updated to 06.00.03 about 4 months ago, now to
this latest, which is described as a bug fix release.
This release has changed the TV picture, it is too bright, almost garish, with a decidedly blue color cast -
Let's be honest, a stable and properly balanced image was never one of the TV's strong points, now it's almost unwatchable.
Why would anybody update the TV firmware picture settings of a 4 year old TV in such a drastic way?
LG TV SJ800V. (2018 UK model). Was 06.00.20 then became 06.00.25 and made no difference to this issue:
Search page on YouTube had a microphone symbol. This enabled Voice Search.
Just recently, (whilst being 06.00.20), MICROPHONE VANISHED. It can't be got back. I know of two other SJ800V TVs with the same issue.
I know of another two similar LG TVs - but different model numbers - which have no problem.
LG says it's probably a YouTube issue. Tried uninstalling and re-installing YouTube but no good...
What can be done? This TV is only 4 years old and I and I really don't see why I should have to go and buy a new one...

Hello, I have LG OLED CX and recently the Youtube app has incorrect geographic data- CH. I am from Slovakia, the TV has never been to Switzerland. Nor physically, nor virtually (VPN). I am getting CH ads, which I dont mind so much, but I am afraid of possible in app geo restrictions.
I already tried everything, even resetting the TV to default. No other TV app is affected.
Anybody please advise.

I have 42B670V-ZA tv bought in 2014. This model has different numbers/letters depending from the distribution area. Mine is for Poland.
Software version is 05.05.70,
WebOS version is 1.4.0-2532 afro-ashley. This model was made with the intention of upgrading to WebOS 2 and so it was manufactured. In late 2014, once the tv was still on market, European and US (with a different name), LG Korea has announced that this model would not have upgrade. Nevertheless I think it STILL IS a way to make it higher or at least faster, as it was on a very beginning. Now it coughs after using 45 mins on Netflix or 30 mins on WWW app when watching film online. When instslling new app, it shows such data:
Version of the app i.e. 1.1.1
Date of last update of the app i.e. 20.04.2015
Size of the app i.e. 105 KB
Rating i.e. "everything" (???)
Internal memory i.e. 850MB/973MB
And this INTERNAL MEMORY REMAINS THE SAME 850MB
Does anybody know, how to do this either using
service mode or
Installing some software from a memory card
or in any other way? The problem is that the tv has not enough memory to operate apps. I cannot release the memory without loosing my settings. I live in Warsaw, Poland, but I have additional apps like HULU and Amazon Prime US which enables me watching US content (I pay for them in USD).
Uninstalling other useless apps didnt work. Now I have only system apps and 3 more like Netflix, HULU and Amazon. I cannot even install anything more. LG support told me to return to factory settings which wipes all memory out. I dont want to return to WebOS 1.0. I just want my tv to work faster BACK AGAIN and maybe to use some other apps which cannot be installed due to insufficient space on card/disc and to install some apps that are compatible with WebOS 2. (Now they are not apperaing neither in Polish LG store nor in US store, once I change the region to US/CANADA/MEXICO.
Thanks in advance!!!
