How to Update Firmware on LG Smart TVs with webOS (2016 -2017) | LG USA

Recommended Posts

When you update your LG TV firmware, you’re making the most of your Smart TV and ensuring that you have all the latest features available. Just like software on your computer, it needs to be updated from time to time for peak performance. So, how do you update your firmware for your LG Smart TV with webOS 3.0? This guide will walk you through it and have you finished in no time. After you’re done watching the video, grab your remote, push the Settings button and begin. You can watch the progress on the screen and the TV will reboot itself after it’s done. You can even choose to automatically update your firmware in the future without having to go through the process each time.

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

      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!!

    • Question: Install the correct firmware on my TV

      Hi guys First of all, I want to warn you that perhaps they read a lousy English, this is what came out of the Google XD translator, I do not speak English, but I hope they can understand me and give me their help. I have a LG 42LB6500-UM TV that apparently has a problem with the Firmware, since I bought it I had automatic updates configured, so it was updated several times until arriving at the mysterious Firmware 05.00.15. Why mysterious? Because according to the support page of LG this software is not in the compatible history with the model of my TV. Here the problem began.
      Since then I can not update the Firmware in any way, online it marks me an error "error in the decryption of the data ...", and when I try it for usb simply nothing happens. I'm stuck in version 05.00.15, but that's not the biggest problem. From that moment I can not access the content that HDCP requires, that is, netflix, cinepolis Klic, Prime Video, etc. Yes, it allows me to play YouTube. If I turn on the HDCP in the configuration of my PS4, the screen turns blue. An error in HDCP appears in the InStart menu. Can you think of an idea to solve this problem? Is it possible to delete the firmware and install a new one in a different way to the traditional one (online and usb)? I am 3 years old with this problem, and the LG technical support staff has only told me that I should change the Mainboard, that is very expensive, and the Mainboard of my TV is in excellent condition, it is a software problem.

It happens to apps also store to at new install. what may be occurring?

      Hi.
      I am having some issues with wifi connectivity on my TV.
      Anything in the 1 tier of 5ghz channels I get proper speeds.
      But anything in the tier 2 or 3 gives me awful speeds.
      I have tested with multiple routers and accesspoints and the problem is the same on all of them.
      The only channels on the 5ghz band that give good speeds are tier 1 (34-64)
      Any firmware update planned ?
    • By Nomee Sahu
      Hello, Since the recent update 04.70.85, my TV's internal speakers are not working. Is it possible to downgrade firmware? If yes, Can Some body share download link of previous firmware for above mentioned model (UAE). Or is there any way to re-flash existing firmware?
      Thanks in advance

      ok so im slowly going insane, just got a new tv and naturally i couldnt keep my fingers off the "update" button.
      before the update the HDR game mode was crisp and bright, after the update it so bloody dim some games are just... way too dark ?
       
      so i tried running a downgrade with lgdtvupdater and got everything to work but when its time to actually download the update to the tv it says that "the update cannot be applied".  everything in the logs are showing ok. but it just wont save to the tv.  it doesnt even start the download, altho i can clearly see in the logs the update is correct and the tv has given the "all clear" to the update server.
       
      am i missing something here ?
