Cannot reset Parental Control Pin


Momz

Question

I have contacted LG to see if I could reset the pin code. It was changed from the default over a year ago. I’m in the states, so the instruction included the channel up and down buttons on the remote. 

We tried the following:

1) Channel up, channel up, channel down, channel up

*the idea is to have a master pin code box open enter a code  (Didn’t work. No box opened)

2) Tried all of the following codes:

0000, 7777, 0313, 0323, 0325

(None worked)

Any other suggestions would be appreciated.

The model is 55UV8500 (2014)

The software version is 05.05.45

Spent another 45 minutes on with Lg rep. 

Finally reset. 

Steps are:

1) Power off TV. 

2) Unplug the TV. 

3)Hold the power button for 10’seconds. 

4)Plug in the Tv. 

5) Power on the Tv. 

6) Access the Safety option via the cog (Cog-(or home button)-Advanced options-Safety

7) Select the Reset PIN Code option. 

8)Enter Pin Code. Any numbers will work. 

9) After the Pin Mismatch error message, press the Channel Up, Channel Up, Channel Down, Channel Up. 

10) The Master Pin Code box should appear. Enter your master code ( It may be 0313, 0325, 0323, 0000, 1234,7777 depending on your Tv model. It is best to call LG to determine the correct code)

11) Change your PIN code.( Preferably to 0000 because who wants to go thru this ever again???!!!???)

Hope this helps.

      I have recently shifted from UAE to India. I have 55" LG 3D smart TV model no. 55UB8301. My problem is 1. I can not change country from UAE to India in settings -Country option because India is not available in the list.
      2. I can not download any app which are normally available in Indian smart TVs like Hotstar/Sonyliv/Amazon prime etc.
      3. In screen mirroring option using my Android phone, I can play any video stream from mobile to smart TV BUT only Amazon prime videos are not played. 
      Can anyone help me for above issues...?

      We have two LG OLED TVs. WebOS appears differently on each. And we are able to download the Paramount+ app on one TV, but not on the other.
      OLED65C7P (older) running software version 6.00.25
      WebOS TV Version 3.9.0-62709
      Does not allow the Paramount+ app to be installed
      OLED65C9PUA (newer) running software version 5.10.25
      WebOS TV Version 4.9.3-5340808
      Allows the Paramount+ app to be installed
      How can we get WebOS to appear the same on both TVs?

      Hello,
      I'm desperately trying to log into my Disney + account on my TV with webOS;  my problem is with the password;  indeed in my password there is the symbol "€" but I cannot find it in the application among the 3 types of keyboards proposed.
       Do you have any idea how to do it apart from changing the password please?
       thank you so much
