Anyone else having issues with the WebOS?

Question

Hi everyone, I’m new on here and just trying to figure out what is going on with my TV. It’s a 65” E8 that I purchased new back in March of last year. I never really had any issues until recently (a month or so). I updated the OS as usual and honestly didn’t pay much attention until the next day I was attempting to login to WebOS and I keep getting “LG CONTENT STORE: Content is unavailable. No content”. I always keep it updated and had Geek Squad do a calibration on it about 3 months ago; which is why I can tell the picture isn’t the same. I called LG for assistance and was told that they could send a technician out but if it wasn’t a hardware issue; even though it is under warranty I would be responsible for the cost. Which they didn’t know how much it’d be. All the info says that my updates  are current but the picture quality isn’t what it was like previously, the apps on the home page are similar yet different and several apps aren’t working anymore at all. Lastly I now can’t access the apps download page. Attempts to login to WebOS gives me a “can’t access at this time “ notification... every time. Any ideas? How much is a home visit usually if I have to pay? For the price I paid I sure seem to be having a lot of issues and still being under warranty. 
Thanks, 

James T.

So I don’t have an answer as to why this was happening; but after trying everything that LG walked me through trying to figure out a solution to this. I am happy to say that after removing my router and connecting directly to my modem; apparently the issue is resolved. I’m not sure why, but it is. I mean I could understand if I wasn’t able to connect to the internet; but for just a few things not working and then the rest being just fine seems odd. Any ideas? Thanks

I have had the same issue with the LG content and in the end it turn out that it was the internet connection issue. Regarding the picture quality, I have regretted that i have updated my OS....the picture quality it has not been the same like when I purchased the TV. Another problem is that u can not downgrade the OS. Actually the upgrade effected my SD channels and not the HD channels.

      Hi,
       
      I recently bought a new LG Smart TV: 65UF6450
       
      At first, all the "smart" functions worked just fine. I was able to use my Netflix, Amazon Prime, Google Video and install new apps from the LG Content Store.
       
      Starting on the 1st of January 2016 I noticed that I cannot even start the LG Content Store page anymore for some reason. As a result I cannot install any new apps, I cannot update the existing ones (and some of them, like Google Video would not even start before they are updated). Each time I try to open the LG Content Store or to update an app, the TV hangs for a while, and then I see a black screen displaying the following message:
       
      https://us.lgrecommends.lgappstv.com/discovery_2015/commonLang.jsp?language=en_US file not found.
         
       
      I also noticed that if I go into Quick Settings/Advanced/General/Account Management(Sign In) it takes a while and then I see the following message:
       
      The network is unstable
       
      But my network is just fine and Netflix, Amazon Video are working just fine.
       
      So, it looks very much as an issue on LG side. I think it may be related to the LG Cloud services being discontinued, but I'm not sure. I tried to call the LG support, but it was one of the worst experiences of my life. Waiting 20 minutes for any kind of help and then giving up.
       
      Questions:
       
      1. Does anyone experience the same issues with their LG smart tvs recently?
      2. What is the reason for these issues?
      3. Is there any official statement from LG conforming this issues and providing some information about when they are going to fix it?
      4. Are there any temporary workarounds? I.e. are there any ways to install new apps and update the existing ones in the meantime?
       
      Thanks!

      TV: LG 55UJ630V 
      OS Version: 5.80.50
      Problem: Spotify is laggy, stops occassionally and is basically a sub-prime experience.
      I can play 4K TV with Netflix, Amazon Prime etc absolutely fine, so why should an audio app have problems?

      hello everyone,
      I've downloaded the Disney+ native app for my webOS 3.4.4 and I've found two issues:
       I cannot see any content in 4K, everything is displayed as HD. For example Mandalorian appears as 4K in WebOS 3.8 but not in my 3.3.4.
      I've not seen anywhere that the content wouldn't be available in 4K with this WebOS version.
      The other issue is with the application slowness when navigating. 
      Any other one in the same situation?
      thanks
