WiFi off


Silentmeow

Question

Since last update,we have had a problem with not being able to connect tv first to our WiFi and then after resetting our modem,etc. It now says WiFi is turned off. Have done a reset but didn’t help also had the annoying message about something being disconnected until I put in store mode. Our model is 55UJ6300. It seems a lot of people are having this problem. Does anyone have any suggestions?

It's tough to troubleshoot WiFi issues.   There could be several reasons and not just one single fix.    My LG TV is an older model and had a few issues years ago with connecting to WiFi.    Here's a few dumb scenarios that could have an impact.   1.  Is your modem located in different room?   2.   If you reset your modem, sometimes it will take minutes for it to fully reset (hence, will not detect your WiFi /  says it is disconnected).   3.   Weak/lost signal from your internet provider outside of your home (which can occur during high-traffic time of day over cable lines or their tech problems).    The only thing I suggest is to power off the TV.   Then, pull the power cord on the router-modem/then plug it in again.   Wait for as long as 10 mins for the modem to reboot (sounds like a long time, but just to be certain it has fully rebooted).    Power on the TV,  then go to the TV's settings menu for Network.   Choose Wi-Fi Connection and look for the name of your router/modem, select it and enter the password.    I would avoid putting the TV into Home|Store Mode until you determine if this works at all.    Store Mode has nothing to do with saving your Wi-Fi settings.   That's it!   Also, consider if your router-modem may need to be replaced.   Good luck!

Hi,

Add to the list of possibilities:

Are you running on 2.4GHz or 5GHz WiFi?  If it is 2.4GHz then there are a multitude of things that can affect it from cordless house phones to microwave ovens.

Channel overlap.  Do you have neighbours close by?  If so their WiFi could be interfering with yours by using the same channel (between 1 & 15 depending on your country), there are plenty of apps for your mobile device to check this problem out.

I had done all of the things you had suggested before and unfortunately none of it worked. The reason I have in store mode is so we don’t have the annoying message that something is disconnected constantly appearing on the screen. We know it’s not the router as when I hooked up an amazon fire stick it worked fine. Thanks for your input.

It is easier for us to use an Amazon Fire Stick which works fine when attached to the tv then to hook up the Ethernet. Our router is in another room and since we have a phone modem  it’s too complicated to move it all. I checked here to see if there was something I had missed. Since it says the WiFi is off. Thanks for your input.

Good luck. I'm betting there's an issue with the TV - this problem is all over the forum. I can't get the wifi to work - I'm using ethernet. I'm also constantly getting that damned pop up about network devices being disconnected, then reconnected. This is an LG issue and for anyone in their support team to suggest otherwise is denying what is clearly an LG problem. Time for LG to step up and deliver a little customer service.

      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.

      Hello,
      We are a company developing streaming apps for our customers. As-to enhance developer / tester / any other teams experience into LG universe, and be able to quickly test any environments we have (dev / staging / production), we'd like to be able to install apps that aren't removed after Developer Mode expires, or aren't visible/listed to the public store.
      We looked upon the idea to extend Developer Mode session with a Crontab with specific accounts for each TV, but some TVs are stopping the Developer Mode when being powered down, so it doesn't seem the most industrialised idea.
      Let me know what we can do to answer that issue !
      Thanks !

      I can watch Netflix and Amazon Prime and I want to watch DisneyPlus, I don't want to buy a new TV because of that stupid firmware, there is lot of complaints regarding to that issue at all forms. Please for your brand benefits and for the user rights solve that problem and release a new update for these TVs. I am waiting an official answer that explain whether you solve it or not. Thank you.

      Hi, whenever I turned on my PS5 in the past on my TV  I would get a prompt in the bottom middle to press a button to automatically go to the HDMI channel, now I still get a notification in the top right saying “HDMI 1 is available” but it doesn’t seem clickable.

      Has this been caused by a software update? I did also set up a sound bar in the HDMI ARC port recently and wondering if it could have anything to do with that?
