OLED65B8 webOS browser won't accept password for Amazon.com account.  Winows Chrome on desktop or Android phone both sign in normally. I have several other account sign-ins that do the same thing

Another user over on the smart TV discussion forum reports the exact  same problem on a 49UM71007LB.  What about this LG ?

Hi  George.

Well, no.  They both have the latest software available.  That's ver 04.31.20 for the B6 and ver 05.10.50 for the B8.

One interesting symptom on the B8:  If I sign out of my account and then tell Amazon I'm a new user and create an account with identical credentials (same username/password), it signs me in normally with all my account data intact -- but only for that one session.  When I come back later, it rejects my login again.

Could this be a bug in the ver 05.10.50 web browser?

I can honestly say that I will never buy another LG TV as long as I draw breath - I have never encountered a company so disinterested in helping customers.

I purchased a 49SM8600PLA in October 19. First thing noticed was that the MHEG Channels do not work ... I thought this was no big deal as don't watch
watch them.

However, the latest software update has now borked the Amazon registration so you can't control the TV with an Echo Dot or whatever.

It's curious however, that you can login to the Amazon website via the standard browser but NOT via the page generated from the " Link to Other Devices for
Voice Contol..."

I would take it up with LG ... but after their response from the first problem... it's not worth wasting my breath. 

Buyer Beware !!

Please describe how this helps again.  i'm not familiar with the Alexa skills.  Are you saying that while you are signed in to your Amazon.com account on the Alexa , you can then sign in to the same account from the C9 TV ?

Does it "stick"?  That is, after you sign in that way once, can you sign out on both devices and then sign in again on the C9 without help from the Alexa?

      This bug appeared with new browser. 
       
      when you load a page, you could move the focus between HTML elements by arrow keys on remote. 
       
      But now, arrow keys doesnt fire any keypress events until you click the page first
       
      before , i could use the website with just arrows, now i first have to activate mouse pointer and click the page, then i can start using arrow keys

      With the Amazon Music app, LG smart TV owners who also happen to be Prime members can finally access two million songs on their TVs. But there is a more convenient approach for you to play Amazon Music on LG smart TV. With an or Mac, you are able to link hidden, please login to view and them play them directly on your smart TV without the Amazon Music app. And you don't worry that your smart TV is not compatible with LG smart TV.

      My Lg TV which has the smart functions and magic remote is playing up. 
      I often use web browser or you tube or similar apps to watch videos etc. 
      Recently however, it keeps crashing and displays a message to the effect that the memory in the app is low or it need to close to free up more memory? 
      My TV is less then 2 years old and is doing this. I love the telly and the smart features especially the web browser function, however this recent issue is making me think about the longevity of such LG smart TVs and whether I should've spent a few hundred more and got another telly. 
       
      Please can someone advise what I can do to fix this as it takes away the whole point of smart TV. 
      Thanks
