YouTube won't update, now cannot run it



My TV is a 55UB850T purchased Nov 2014.  About a week ago it said YouTube needed to update, so would jump to LG Store where I would select Update, but this would fail, so then I would choose Launch and we could keep going.  After a few days it changed so that as it jumped to LG Store, it showed the flash screen of the store and now sticks there.  We cannot attempt an update and cannot launch.  So I have lost YouTube.

I have done a factory reset, but still the same.

Anyone suggestions of what I can try?

Thanks for your reply.  I don't know how to delete an app.  I have the LG magic remote, so there are not many buttons.  I can go to the on-screen button for the YouTube app and move it around in the ribbon across the bottom of the screen or click on it to open it.  I just tried the color buttons to see if they do anything - no luck.

From further playing around I now can say that the LG Store is unable to update any existing app and also cannot install any new app.  The progress bar shows 5% or so, then stops and says Temporary error.  So it seems like a network error but when I go to Settings > Network > Wired Connection - it reports the Connection as OK.  I have tried changing to manual network settings and then choosing Google DNS - but no difference.  Then I have disconnected the wired connection and established WiFi but still LG Store behaves the same.

Are there other ways to check that the network connection for the TV is OK?  I am beginning to wonder if there actually could be a hardware problem.

To delete an app press the "home" button on your remote. The icons for all your apps show up at the bottom of the screen.  Press the right arrow repeatedly until you see the pencil at the far right. Select the pencil icon and you enter the edit mode. Move the cursor back to the left and stop on the YouTube application. You should see an "X" over the youtube icon, select this "x" to delete the app.

Thanks for this info.  I tried it but  I don't get to see a pencil icon.  However, because of another comment I decided not to delete YouTube, so not a problem for now.

Hi Thank you for the information. I tried to change my internet connection and it worked. Seemed the other internet connection is not stable so it prevent update and download even youtube is working fine. Not sure why but I had manage it. Thanks again.

Thanks.  I pondered this and realized I could try using my Android tablet as a hot-spot  and in this way get a different Internet Connection.  And guess what, it worked after several tries and the LG Store updated the YouTube app.  Then I reverted to my usual ISP connection and the updated YouTube is working fine, playng HD content for hours without a hicup - so I think this shows my Internet connection is OK.   On my usual ISP the LG Store still refuses to install new apps, but at least I now have a work around.  So, once again, thanks rsuprayogi

Sounds like there is some kind of security protocol active on your regular ISP modem or router. Glad you got it working.

Yes, my ISP is the major Indonesian telco and they do things like hijack the DNS and insert ads onto web pages, so some of their interference may be behind the current pain.  On reflection I suspect the problem arrived with a WebOS update that occurred in early June.  But I did not notice it immediately until YouTube decided it needed to update and this invoked LG store.  To get the next WebOS update whenever it is, I may need to use the alternative Internet connection, then hopefully that will fix it.

      Being an environmentally conscious company means looking deep into all business processes and putting the utmost effort into transforming, both externally and internally, from the supply chain to the organizational culture. In other words, LG aims to be an environmentally sustainable business, calling for specific and tangible actions with the three environmental ESG initiatives outlined in its BETTER LIFE PLAN 2030.

      The initiatives mark a paradigm shift towards adopting tangible, specific and measurable actions for a better, cleaner and greener environment. Part two of the Better Life story series, this article looks at the environmental action plans LG has established and the goals it is working hard to achieve.

      According to research, the average temperature on
      link hidden, please login to view (2.2 degrees Fahrenheit) since pre-industrial times. Responding to the urgency of climate change, LG remains steadfastly committed to attaining carbon neutrality, and to converting entirely to renewable energy in the long term. Its dedication to both goals can already be seen in the energy-efficient technologies applied at LG Smart Park in Changwon, South Korea. Exercising immediate change for its carbon initiative, LG is converting to more efficient operational processes and applying energy-efficient technologies across all of its production plants. LG Smart Park, the company’s revolutionary production facility, deploys next-generation manufacturing innovations to simultaneously achieve higher production efficiency and enhanced sustainability. The manufacturing hub has increased productivity by 20 percent and reduced the cost of defective-product returns by 80 percent. Moreover, LG Smart Park has reduced greenhouse gas emissions and boosted energy efficiency per unit by 30 percent compared to the previous factory.

      LG is looking to change the status quo of end-of-lifecycle management by using eco-friendly materials, streamlining manufacturing processes and turning discarded materials into ‘new’ resources, with the aim of creating a circular economy.
      The reducing, recovering, recycling and reusing of materials are all very important in a circular economy. LG operates a free e-waste retrieval service in 52 countries and aims to collect an accumulated total of over eight million tons of used appliances from 2006 to 2030. As for recycling, LG is improving its existing processes to achieve a higher recycling rate, with the end goal of hitting 95 percent by 2030. As part of this, the company’s Chilseo Recycling Center (CRC) situated in Hamyang, South Korea, plans to replace the compressor and old equipment by the latter half of the year. Furthermore, LG recently invited its employees to come together in the collective journey towards circularity by using fewer disposable paper cups at work.

      A global leader in consumer electronics, LG is dedicated to helping consumers realize a more sustainable lifestyle. This is why the company is applying eco-friendly technologies to all newly developed products, contributing to a smaller carbon footprint and resource recirculation.
      By 2030, LG plans to have reduced total carbon emissions from the product-usage stage by 20 percent. It also projects that, from 2021 to 2030, it will have used an accumulated total of six hundred thousand tons of recycled plastics in the production of new home appliances. In the future, the company will be able to offer products that are even more energy-efficient and environmentally sustainable than its current crop of models, helping consumers to reduce their monthly energy bills, achieve a more sustainable household and enjoy the best version of the Better Life LG aims to provide.

      For more on how LG is embracing inclusivity, sustainability and diversity in all that it does, stay tuned for the third and final Better Life story, coming soon to Beyond News.

      I have LG TV UF6800. TV is working well. The youtube app had worked well until a couple month ago. The yoyube hangs very often after playing advertisement. It also hangs after playing a long video (around 30 min). By "hangs" I mean it is still there, showing the youtube UI, but we cannot play any video. Just black, staying there forever.
      I am using wired network on the TV. 
      I tried updating app, nothing. I googled and tried unpluging power while watching...., no help. BTW the youtube (with the same user) works well on PC and iPad.
      If you think this is not LG's problem, please advise to whom I should contact.

      Hi all
       is there a way to view content from my own channel in Youtube? Much of my own content has the ‘unlisted’ or ‘private’ attribute and will not appear in search results, so I need to be able to go to my own channel and sekect the video from there, but that seems not to be possible. Or is it?
