Annoying pop-up messages on my lg 49sj800v smart tv


rick wiseman

Question

I have owned this tv for a year and pleased with it ... until about a month ago. I now have constant repetitive messages in top right hand corner of screen saying 'Unknown device disconnected' or 'wired network is connected' or wired lan cable is connected' and it's driving me crazy. I have tried the lg live chat technical support and they were not aware of the issue but I've seen the same problem discussed on US forums and here too. Nobody seems to be able to have a solution. I have unplugged all external stuff - Virgin V6 box, Wii, wired internet, etc and it still happens. Help!!

So today there's been a software update and the problem has gone away. Coincidence or thanks lg? Let's wait and see.

I started to get the "unknown device has disconnected" popup last night all of a sudden.

Also random popups of ads and such which I can't explain where they are coming from such as TV shows recommendations.

My WIFI also stopped working (I gave up on trying to get it to work).

I believe they are probably related but who knows. LG is useless. If i had the money, I would started a class action lawsuit for their TV products as it getting into a huge problem as I have seen issues on their LG forums and CNET forum about their WIFI not working and the unknown device has disconnected.

Mine out or warranty so I will have to think of getting a new TV that NON-LG. My last Flat screen lasted 4-5 years. This lasted about 14 months, great job LG.

Only solution to get around this is switch it to STORE mode to turn off the notification but then it will reset it settings every few minutes so you can't switch PICTURE MODE or adjust anything really on the TV in this mode.

In my 49SJ810v TV the wifi does not see and wireless networks, as well the Magic control does not register. It seems that the Wifi and bluetooth are related (same module).

Could any one (LG Support as well) to confirm the Part number of this module.

It seems that there a lot LG SJ810 tvs that have the same problem

I have same problem, I did a reset,and got WiFi back on but couldn’t connect but lost WiFi again and didn’t get it back. Connected with Ethernet and got WiFi on but lost it again. Hopefully they come up with an update.

 

Solution to this Fault on LG SJ810v

I had the same problem with my 49sj810v (random messages connected- disconnected devices, the wifi could not detect any networks, and the magic mouse could not connect(could not register as the bluetooth had to be initialised)).

SOLUTION:  Have replaced the  RF Module (EAT63377302 WI FI MODULES & 3D TRANSMITTERS FOR LG GENUINE 49SJ810V).

Now everything is working Fine.

Hope this message will help other LG tv owners that LG will not help.

Since the wifi could not detect any wifi networks, it was obvious to me that the wifi module is faulty. Made some research to find out the correct part number of this module and bought one from the ebay.

  I do have fair background of electronics - communication.

Hope that my solution will help you.

LG techs are working on an update fix since it was the last update that scewed everything up. But if the module is bad the update won’t fix it . LG should be responsible for it but I am sure they won’t be.  I can do a lot of things but changing a module is another thing plus ,the number may vary from model to model.

I did find the part for my model, it’s a different number then yours. You tube has a video for Samsung and theirs is super easy to change as it right there and you just po a few screws. Is ours riyin front too? 

1. Remove the back cover.

2. The wifi module is at the bottom center. Its a small box, which could be removed by one screw. The box has the bottom switches as well tje wifi controller. 

3. Disconnect the plug from the wifi and remove the board. Teplace tje wifi board with a working one and connect the connector. Fix the box back to the tv

4 fix back cover.

Is quite easy procedure. Should not take more the 30 min.

Goodluck

      Hi.
      When Im playing a movie in an app on my LG OLED TV the screen is turned off after 15 minutter and only showing for the lack of other words its "digital fireworks» and the text "Turn on screen by pressing any button on remote except power button».
      Its really annoying. 
      Every power/eco mode is off and no timer is active?
      Anyone?

      Dears, 
      While trying to set up universal control for my surround sound (so I dont need the extra remote) I've been facing the following difficulty.
       
      When I go through the steps in device connector I never get the option for set universal control. After simplink  (which is off) I just have the option "done" no next to set up manufacturer to control it via the "universal" remote function on my magic remote.
       
      Device: Oled55c7v-z + magic remote
      Tried already:
      Factory reset, change service location, adding different devices (never does the option appear), hard power cycle, and disconnecting and connecting the devices.
