EG9600 Firmware Update


ERIC.

Question

The WebOS on my EG9600 recently updated to firmware 04.26.00 and now the picture quality is unwatchable, it reminds me of a picture with bad reception.   It’s not just the live tv but also Netflix looks looks just as bad.

I’ve opened up a case with LG but no resolution yet.  I wish that I could just downgrade the firmware to see if that is what caused the issue.

Hello Eric, 

 

I have the same problem here in The Netherlands. The update was pushed and nothing first seem to be wrong. What I have noticed is that my Apple TV 4K device was not able to get into 1010p or 4K anymore. First I thought it was a problem with the device itself. I have cleared the Apple TV and restored everything back to default. Then I searched trough my receiver because the Apple TV 4K is connected there, could not find any answer. 

I called three days ago with LG The Netherlands support, I have made a case and now calling them three days in a row, the guy from Technical assistant was checking his firmware that they standard bring out for you to download, its not matching our firmware update version. No answer back from LG at this moment and they can't give me any sign when they start solving this problem. The discussion is that technical support is very busy due to holiday season. I have tried to reach different levels within LG to get a reaction back, no answer. You see they automatically pushed the firmware to you, my TV and maybe even more people with this problem. I hope they fix this very soon, because they made our TV's bricked now with problems. They advised me to to manually get back or install a different firmware version, because you might get even more difficulties. Maybe they just made a mistake and pushed beta version into live consumer production? - they are very busy at LG right now to get the airplay 2 into the new OLED tv's and earlier models like we have and, who knows our firmware corresponds with this version.

I hope a lot of people start to complain at LG about this firmware issue, this needs to be solved, this WEBOS firmware is not good and effecting the hardware.

Cheers

Ray

      webOS updated, I think to 2023, on my C2 a couple of days ago. Since then the News option on the Sky News app no longer works, instead timing out. The Weather and Climate options still work, though.
      I have deleted and reloaded the Sky News app, but the problem remains.
      Does anybody have any suggestions of what I might try to get this working again, or is this something for LG, or Sky, to fix?

      My tv is acting strangely after there was a software update (sometime between April 10-15,2024)
      randomly turning off and on -- many times within a few minutes remote works some of the time or only certain buttons goes to a colored screen i.e. purple, yellow, light blue with no image just color sudden annoying continuous, high pitch sound like an alarm Checked and reset the cable box and called cable company. 
      Unplugged and plugged tv back in.
      Change the HDMI input
      It is becoming very frustrating.

      Up until a few days ago my TV and AVR have been working perfectly since I bought it.
      Zero hassles with HDMI and connectivity.
      Then I was prompted to update to the latest software version which I did and now often when I switch HDMI (running on 1) it picks up the device name, CEC works but I get “No Signal”… and then nothing.
      Just stays on “No Signal”. It is almost as if some HDMI handshake breaks and now the driver is in a broken state.
      I’ve found that if I hard power off and power on the device sometimes works but I don’t want to do that every time especially since it’s hard to get to the power.
      This really strikes me as a software issue with the latest update as absolutely nothing else has changed in my setup.
      I’ve tried:
      Different HDMI cables (high quality) Deep colour settings Reset the TV to factory default Different HDMI ports TV
      Model: OLED65G26LA / OLED65G26LA.HFBQLWK WebOS TV Version: 8.3.0.2301 Software Version: 13.30.56 AVR & Devices
      Marantz SR5015 Nvidia Shield Pro PS5
        The setup is the conventional AVR installation as shown in the attached file

       
      Has anyone else experienced this? 
      Is it possible to revert the software update?

      Automatic Firmware Update
      Press the Home/Smart button on your remote to bring up your launcher bar.
      Click the Settings icon in the top-right.
      Choose the All Settings option at the bottom.
      Choose the General menu from the left.
      Scroll down, near the bottom of the list, and select About this TV.
      From here, make sure Allow automatic updates is checked, and click the Check for updates button.
      If an update is found, follow the steps on screen to download and install it.

      Hello,
      I have a problem with my new LG OLED G2 newest version 4 firmware.
      I tried sorting my satellite channels with chansort programm from github, because sorting them with the tv remote is a pain.
      When I try to sort them with the remote and have selected about 10 or more channels all the selected channels get suddenly getting deselected, so I can only select up to 10 at a time  to 
      sort them -> must be some kind of firmwarebug? 
      After exporting the channellist to a usb stick then editing it with chansort an importing it back into the tv all my channels are gone, all transponderns are deleted.
      First I thought it was a charsort problem but all channels and transponders get also deleted when I simply export them to a usb drive an import them back, without editing the file at all.
      Does someone know how to fix this problem? 
      And yes I´ve done multiple factory resets -> did not fix any of this behaviour.
      I also discoverd another bug the deletes all channels, because I needed to reboot the tv I searched for a reboot option in the tvs menu, but there is no reboot option.
      To do a full reboot (except from forcing it through cutting the tvs power) you can deselect the privicy agreements, after that the tv reboots, but then all channels are gone too.
