WiFi button in off position can’t turn on?

I've had the same problem and it is because the wi-fi card is not working.  I have had intermittent internet for almost 4 years and then this happened too.  Technician told me this brand is renowned for it. New board installed under extended warranty all OK. Get price before purchasing as could be very expensive.

@Neil gunn Yes, I have seen this reported a lot to, for many different LG models. They tend to use the same very small module, about the size of a large postage stamp!

I never suffered from a WiFi issue with my TV room, as it is a "wired room" (has a LAN Ethernet cable direct to the Router).  I split that into 4 connections in the HiFi cabinet (for Foxtel box, TV, spare for Laptop) via a comms SWITCH (modern smart version of a HUB), cost only $20 (D-LINK switches work well).

However, that little module ALSO supports the magic Remote Bluetooth buttons, and mine broke after a thunderstorm a few months back. I found that the "LG TV PLUS" app on my Android phone works great as a temporary workaround for that issue, until I can get eldest son down here to help get TV lifted off the wall bracket to replace the module.

      How do I turn off screen when listening to music
    • By raspia
      Hello everyone.
      First of all sorry about my english.
      Since my  55´ SM8200PLA was updated to 5.00.02 version, every time I turn on the tv, ´ivi loading´ message appears, then gets into LG Content Store, and then shows ´This content is not available´ and hitting OK, goes back to my HDMI connection as per usual.
      Once the tv is showing programs, if I get into LG Store, everything is normal and works properly.
      How can I get rid of this annoying issue?
      My WebOS version is: 4.9.0-53902 and the running firmware is as mentioned above 5.00.02
      Thanks in advance.
      Regards

      I wonder why wifi settings are not saved automatically in the smartTV, this is a basic need, this feature should be priority in upcoming updates, this a must feature.
       
       
      Thanks.
