Question

Hello

I have 42B670V-ZA tv bought in 2014. This model has different numbers/letters depending from the distribution area. Mine is for Poland.

Software version is 05.05.70,

WebOS version is 1.4.0-2532 afro-ashley. This model was made with the intention of upgrading to WebOS 2 and so it was manufactured. In late 2014, once the tv was still on market, European and US (with a different name), LG Korea has announced that this model would not have upgrade. Nevertheless I think it STILL IS a way to make it higher or at least faster, as it was on a very beginning. Now it coughs after using 45 mins on Netflix or 30 mins on WWW app when watching film online. When instslling new app, it shows such data:

Version of the app i.e. 1.1.1

Date of last update of the app i.e. 20.04.2015

Size of the app i.e. 105 KB

Rating i.e. "everything" (???)

Internal memory i.e. 850MB/973MB

And this INTERNAL MEMORY REMAINS THE SAME 850MB

Does anybody know, how to do this either using

service mode or 

Installing some software from a memory card

or in any other way? The problem is that the tv has not enough memory to operate apps. I cannot release the memory without loosing my settings. I live in Warsaw, Poland, but I have additional apps like HULU and Amazon Prime US which enables me watching US content (I pay for them in USD).

Uninstalling other useless apps didnt work. Now I have only system apps and 3 more like Netflix, HULU and Amazon. I cannot even install anything more. LG support told me to return to factory settings which wipes all memory out. I dont want to return to WebOS 1.0. I just want my tv to work faster BACK AGAIN and maybe to use some other apps which cannot be installed due to insufficient space on card/disc and to install some apps that are compatible with WebOS 2. (Now they are not apperaing neither in Polish LG store nor in US store, once I change the region to US/CANADA/MEXICO.

Thanks in advance!!!

@George Hofmeister ROKU is not supported in Poland in terms of apps. I stand by LG, found quite inexpensive tv with WebOS 4, 32", with everything I need, but I want this 42" for my son.  The only con is 50 Hz instead of 100 Hz. Besides this LG 42 is made in 2015, I wrote 2014. 42LB670V has the best viewing angle Ive ever seen in all tvs. I visit people's houses with tvs 4 times more expensive that mine and the comfort of watching is... incomparable. Second thing is that I 'm thinking about Nvidia TV which has all apps and full support in Poland.

All electronic devices are twice more expensive here than in US.

Hi @Adam Broda,

The ROKU was only a suggestion, so the Nvidia TV would of course be a better option for you.  I agree with you about the quality of LG screens, my sister & brother-in-law have a 47" that predates webOS and the picture is still marvellous.

      I was reading a few articles on the launch of Disney Plus but they did not list any of the tvs such as LG webos or samsung tv. I hope disney plus comes out in lg tvs.  Its supposed to launch November 12th in the US for $6.99 a month or $69.99 a year. They also said there will be a $12.99-per-month trio bundle of Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ that is coming. I'm already doing espn for $4.99, I may do the entire bundle to get hulu also, not sure, At the minimum, I am definitely going to get Disney plus

      Hi, I'm experiencing some strange changes in how my AppleTV 4K behave after updating the LG [WEBOS] to 05.10.35. I own an OLED65C8PLA LG SoundBar SL10YG When I start an App, it takes much longer time to get it up and to run. When I close the app, the screen turns black and can blink ones or twice and then finally I see the ”Home screen.” Sometimes the screen stays black and I need to restart the AppleTV 4K Device. This behaviour has never occurred before. PS. I have restarted

      HI, I purchased 43UF770T-TA 3 years ago in hope that LG will update the software, but I have not seen any proper update. I have 04.05.85 software version of webos 2. The youtube application is pathetic, no airplay support, no proper browser, also do not suupport keyboard input and need to click the onscreen keyboard letter by letter to enter anything. Please fulfill my wish and provide proper software update to 43UF770T-TA so that at least youtube and browser works properly. If airplay is also integrated then it will be super. Thanks. Shankar K.

      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.
      LG 42LB6500
      Firmware: 05.00.15
      Serial number: 406RMEN7R340
      WebOs TV version: 1.4.0-2507 (afro-ashley)

      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.

      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 ?
