Amazon Prime App not starting

Question

Hi

I've had Amazon Prime working fine on my LG TV. But recently found that the app does not start up. It stays on the starting logo screen and does nothing else. Sometimes the image stutters and looks like the app is trying to restart itself but with no luck. I have uninstalled and reinstalled it. from what I can see the app has not updated recently so don't really know what has changed. This issue has now also started to happen on one of my other LG tv's in the house.

Has Anyone else has a similar issue?

J

I have a similar if not exactly the same issue. I try the start the app, i shows the big "Prime Video" logo and the screen goes grey (like the apps usual background). If i switch to ordinary TV or Netflix and back to Prime Video, i just get the grey screen. When i restart the tv it does the same thing again, first the logo then a grey screen.

I have a [LG] webOS TV OLED55B7D with firmware version 05.80.15. The internet connection works fine for Netflix and all other smart tv functions.

Things i tried so far:

  • i uninstalled and reinstalled the app -> nothing changed
  • i did a factory reset with the tv, reinstalled all apps etc. -> still the same error
  • i went the the Prime Video website and removed the tv from the devices list (in hope that this would force to establish a new binding) -> no changes either

Perhaps someone has found a solution to this...

      We recently got a new LG 43" TV for our bedroom (43UN7300AUD). There are no inputs for this TV as we only want to use it for streaming services (Netflix and Amazon). There is no Antenna hooked up to the TV either since we don't want to watch LiveTV on it (the only Antenna we have is hooked up in our family room to a FireTV Recast, not to a smartTV). 
      When we turn on the TV it auto-tunes to channel 2-0. Since there is no antenna, this is just loud snow. Even when we go to the dashboard, it defaults to showing liveTV and hence more snow & noise. Even though the LG TV stations are enabled and working it will always tune to 2-0 when I turn the TV on. I've tried going through the menu and cannot find any setting to change this. I'd be happy removing or disabling "LiveTV" as an option and would love it to start with the dashboard with LiveTV not expanded/active. Even clicking on the amazon prime button takes time and we get several seconds of the snow before the smart features startup.
      With more and more people only using streaming services, I have to believe the TV supports our use case and should not try to ever use liveTV. 
      Is there a setting I missed in the menu to stop it from always trying to go to liveTV when I turn the TV on? Or at the very least make it tune to an LG channel on start to avoid the snow?
      Update: of course, right after posting thisI did find that you can use the amazon prime button on the remote to turn the TV on. I still would like to fix the dashboard playing snow and would prefer to have the TV not try to use liveTV if I use the power button to turn the TV on.
      Thank you

      Hello Everyone,
      Model: 49SJ800V-ZB (WebOS 05.80.60)
      I have no problems with TV broadcasts.
      I updated to last official version  a few days ago. When I try to watch videos through internet applications or web browser, I encounter such a situation. For example, the incident I encountered in watching a YouTube video. It can't be watch in this way.  I think it's software problem.
      The factory defaults have been restored twice but it hasn't changed. I couldn't find a solution.  What can I do? Thx.

      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!
