Question

The LG TV Plus app for Android works fine for me but it can only turn OFF tv and not turn it ON.  I assume that it is because when TV is off it is no longer on the WIFI network and the app cannot communicate with it.  My Roku Android app can turn ON and OFF my LG TV.  So, I first turn it on with the Roku app then boot up the LGTV Plus app.   Seems ridiculous that LG could not figure out how to turn on the TV.  

Does anyone know of a fix?

    • Network connection issues. LG Content store doesn't connect.

      I did a refresh of my LG TV 3 days ago. Sold the old LG 47" 3D LED TV and bought new 55" LG Super UltraHD TV with WebOS. I believe, the biggest con of this new TV is WebOS. Its totally frustrating. Sorry for WebOS fans. It isn't that smart and functional they way it looks. The problem I having since 3 days and being a network engineer, I am unable to solve a network issue myself which is even more frustrating for me. Ok, let me explain the issue. The TV when installed was connected to LAN cable to my router which has direct internet connection. The TV works and none of the apps were working. Basically TV wasn't able to connect to internet via apps. If i open web browser, it was working fine with all webpages showing correctly. I'll skip the part of contacting LG support which was useless. All troubleshooting steps like resetting, formatting, changing time zone, location, region was done but no luck. Finally I connected the TV via mobile hotspot and it just worked which gave me the clue that some ports are being blocked by my ISP or router. My internet setup is this way. Internet cable from ISP -> ISP Modem (can do NAT and work as router) - WiFi Router (NAT, DHCP, etc) -> all LAN clients. I put my LG TV in DMZ, opened all ports, etc but no luck. Then I converted my ISP modem as router and connected the LG TV directly to it and it started working..!!! My WiFi Router is TP-Link Archer C7 and I was using stock firmware. Thought it was creating issues and I installed DD-WRT, Open-WRT but no luck at all. The apps which were installed in TV when TV was connected directly to modem are still working fine. Youtube, Plex, Netflix, etc all are working but when I open LG Content Store, it just refuses to load. I am not sure what wrong my TP-Link router is doing. There is something wrong with the LG TV content store. If it requires to open ports, then I would like to know which ones. Sorry for the long port, may be my frustration of 3 days with no luck.!!

    • Question: Pop up messages on TV:wired LAN disconnected, then Network connected

      For the past few months I am getting intermittent pop up messages on my TV. 1st one says Wired LAN disconnected, then another message pops up and says Network connected. I have been calling my cable carrier Spectrum and Techs have been here and can't find problem. Also I went to check my wifi on my TV and my user name and connections aren't showing up all of a sudden. This TV was just purchased May 2017. What is going on and how to resolve!!

    • Question: webOS 04.71.00 on LG OLED65C7P no longer outputs to Optical/HDMI ARC?

      I'm not sure if something happened with webOS update 04.71.00, but my LG OLED65C7P no longer outputs sound to my LG SJ9 soundbar in Optical/HDMI ARC mode. SIMPLINK is on, HDMI cable hasn't moved, everything had been working like a charm for a year+, then no sound unless I switch to TV speakers, which is a bummer. Anybody else in that situation? Ugh, apparently it started with 04.70.85, others are having this issue here.

      Hello all, I'm new to the forum, this question might be a silly one but oh well, so I bought a Lg  OLED65E7P, I don't use the remote often but I do use the webOS LG TV PLUS remote app on my apple iPhone x, on the app remote there's no option to turn on the tv, but there is an option to turn it off, has anyone experienced this as well? it makes it a little inconvenient to always have to turn on the tv via Apple TV 4k trigger, is there a way I can turn on the tv from the lg WebOS remote app?

      I have the 2016 LG OLED65E6P purchased 2/19/2017 with the "magic remote" and recently, the remote control has become unreliable.  It worked perfectly until a few weeks ago and I'm not sure what changed. The remote seems to work properly when the TV is first turned on, but later, I have to press a button repeatedly to get any effect.  It's not bad buttons, it's like the buttons only send the signal to the TV intermittently.  The red light at the top of the remote sometimes flashes red, sometimes goes solid red for a few seconds, and sometimes does nothing when I press the button (I couldn't find a description of what the light does).  It's very frustrating.
      I mostly make due by repeatedly pressing the button that turns on the teardrop cursor -- after maybe 10 times it'll come on, and then I can use the cursor to operate the TV until it times out.  So that works, but it's not a good solution because it's hard to get the cursor turned on.
      I put in fresh batteries several times to see if that's the problem -- it made no difference.  Plus the cursor works fine, when I can get it turned on.
      I was also hopeful that a firmware update caused this problem and it will be resolved.
      The remote doesn't seem to require line-of-sight to work.  Does the remote use bluetooth or WiFi?  I sometimes use Bluetooth headphones with the TV and those work fine.
      Has anyone else had this problem with the remote -- and if so, how did you solve it?
      (I do have an extended warranty so in theory I can get a replacement remote -- but I'd rather not spend an hour on the phone if this is a common problem.)
