Factory Mode Floating Text Box

Question

My LGwebos3 suddenly started to display a floating text box that reads " FACTORY MODE [How to go to user mode] Press Instop Key in a remote control." The tv image also suddenly has a green or sometimes blue tint to it and it resets to factory settings every time I turn it off. I have pressed every remote button in search is the Instop Key and checked the user manual... No luck! I bought he T.V. About two months ago. Issue started randomly but have been unable to resolve it. Help please!   By the way, the green tint is only there is using coaxial or HDMI but when I access the settings menu of the tv, it looks perfectly fine... Frustrated!

The "instop" key is on the Service Remote, not the user remote that you get with the TV.  The good news is that if you have a smartphone with an IR blaster (eg. a Galaxy S5) or you know someone that does, you can use the free AnyMote app to "press the instop key" - AnyMote has that instop key for LG TVs.  Be aware that this will factory reset your TV, and who knows what else will happen!  It fixed this issue for me, but YMMV.

      Hello, I am using WebOS3.5 on my LG 49 SJV800V. When I log into my YouTube account on my TV via my smartphone app, I login as the wrong user from my Google account.  In the smartphone app the right user is shown, but when I am signed in on the TV app, the Google User is signed in, instead of the one I am using for YouTube. For people who do not know what I am talking about - you can have different Users in one Google account. A while ago Google decided to merge the Google account with
