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

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

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.

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

Thanks for sharing, I opened up the back cover and found the wifi module, it was quite easy as you mentioned, mine was in a plastic cover with the  power button. Now I gotta wait for the part to arrive. I'm in Brazil, wasn't hard finding it online. My tv is a 49uj7500, part lgsbwac72

Everything was fine until they did the last update and that seems to have screwed up the WiFi.Several people have the problem. Techs are supposed to be working on a fix but if the module is not working an update won’t work. LG has a lot of upset customers .

      I don’t use screen share.  Suddenly SCREEN SHARE is showing up highlighted when I am trying to select the HDMI that I need to be using.  However, since SCREEN SHARE is already highlighted and will not go away, it keeps everything else with exception from antenna tv from working.  I have gone into the SCREEN SHARE APP  and was able to deactivate the sound.  Could not figure out away to cancel completely.  Please help!

      I recently updated the firmware on my  LG43UH610V.  Now I constantly get "Wired Lan cable disconnected" / "Wired network is connected" messages even while watching a video file from my NAS. The TV is connected and using the network while getting these messages. It has always been on a fixed IP address on the LAN.

      Hello!
      Cable was working fine.  Had to unplug TV and cable to reboot because the TV screen kept cutting to black and was up to about 30 seconds each time (it gets progressively longer, until I unplug the TV and cable box, and do the hold-the-on-button-for-10-seconds-and-start-over fix, which has worked in the past for this problem, as well as the app restarting for memory thing).  Well, now I’m unable to get the cable signal back.
      — I swapped cable box from HDMI 1 to 2 and Apple TV from 2 to 1.  No signal from cable in HDMI 2, but Apple TV worked in 1.
      — Bought new HDMI cord.  No signal.
      — Restarted the TV from scratch and re-setup everything   No signal.
      — Called cable company and had them troubleshoot.  No signal.
      — Hooked cable box to another TV.  Bam!  Signal!  Works fine!
      So, why won’t the TV recognize the cable box?  I have Consolidated Communications, but cable’s worked when accidentally set to AT&T, as well as Comcast in the past.
      Sorry if I sound dramatic, but I’m really, really irritated that I spent $1900 on a TV that has to be rebooted multiple times a week, and the fact that I’ve seen posts on here regarding the app reset problem dating back to 2017, yet LG’s chosen not to fix this issue.  It’s ridiculous.
