LG 42LB6500-TH Software update issues - unable to update to 05.05.70 via internet/usb


Question

 

LG 42LB6500 is having trouble with display. Fire TV stick, prime video and set top box video are not getting displayed and only audio works. It looks like this is a software issue (current version 05.05.55) and I am not able to fix it by updating software to 05.05.70 via internet (image below) or through usb. Please advice.

Yes - I tried USB as software update was not happening via networks. The disk was not recognized and after multiple attempts, I gave up. I called LG customer care and they said this is a mother board

@LG user 42LB6500-TH Just to clarify: 1) are you using an AV Receiver for sound/surround sound?  2) Did any of the input devices USED to work before, or has the "problem" just occurred?

3) Did the issue start just after the update to  05.05.55?

4) Does the Live TV, or  other APPS on the TV work correctly for sound and video?

SUGGESTION: Remove all devices, unplug the TV from mains power, hold its power button for 30 seconds, plug TV back to power, then check each input device individually, either using the HDMI ARC, or an input for DVD players, sometimes marked "BD". If one device works in one socket, experiment with the other one to see which input works best.

If you DO use an AV Receiver amp, then you will need to plug those devices into the input sockets of your AVR, and  retest (but bear in mind that not all units are HDMI-CEC compliant, so you may need to turn HDMI-CEC off for those devices, and the AVR HDMI Port.

Yes - all the devices used to work. It is only after the update to 05.05.55, set top box, fire tv stick and chromecast started failing and only dark screen is displayed. I am not able to update the firmware as well to fix this issue.

No app is working for video. Is it an issue with refresh rate between TV and devices?

@LG user 42LB6500-TH  Refresh rate is ONLY to do with screens, devices connected should have no bearing on the issue.

Did you try an empty USB stick, downloading the ZIP file from the LG site on your PC/Laptop, then unzip the file into the ROOT of the USB stick (i.e. NOT in a folder), then following the USB firmware install steps?

      Dear LG Team,
      I would like to know is there any possibility to get latest entertainment app like Disney++Hotstar, ZEE5, Voot etc. for the LG web OS 2.0 models?
      My TV Model is 42LF6500.
      Positive reply expected in this regard, because I am dedicated and valuable customer of LG brand.
      Thanks in advance.

      [Feature-Request] Set power on to last HDMI input

      Not sure if this feature request would be part of LG webOS or would require changes to some lower level control software for my TV.
      But... It seems that every time I switch it on, it seemingly randomly selects a HDMI input, I  mostly use the same HDMI input so I wanted to ask for a feature request in the next software update that makes the TV remember the last selected HDMI input so I don't have to keep manually selecting it.
      In addition, maybe a second option in the TVs settings that can auto select the input based on there being an input signal or not, that might be useful for people that switch devices allot.
      Thanks

      Hi, 
       
      I was tying to change the settings on our LG TV to enable it for HD channel reception. We found instructions on the net to configure the "area option" in the hidden menu, however, they did not work. So, we thought that we need to change the country group to be able to receive the HD channels. Although we could not change the "country group code" from 20 to an arbitrary number, we change it to 10. After that, we have not been able to change it anymore. It is struck there. I know this is ridiculous, but an LG TV expert who is working in LG customer services told us that I could not change it either and we need to replace the IC. I shocked why with a simple change in one of the TV parameters, everything is got complicated. 
       
      In details, here is the picture of the parameters currently set on the LG TV with the model number of 49LH549V-TD: 
       

       
      Please tell me why I could not set the "country group code" to 20 once again? It is gray meaning that is unchangeable. Any ideas will be appreciated.
       
      Best regards 
      Alizadeh

      Hi,
       
      I purchased an LG OLED55BX6LB yesterday and noticed that when signed into the Youtube app, I'm still getting ads displayed despite it showing 'PREMIUM' on the app. Not a massive problem as I can just watch Youtube via an nVidia Shield, which doesn't show ads as expected.
      Still, it's annoying. Is this a one-off, or do others have the same issue?

      I love the Art Gallery feature so it would be AMAZING if you could configure one of the Art Gallery sets as the screen saver fo rthe TV.

      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.

      I recently bought A LG WEBOS TV MODEL NO : 49LJ617T. In the night I turn off the TV with the remote and then turn off the mains switch of the TV. When I turn On the TV in the morning, Black or coloured screen appear with only sound but when I reboot the TV again the LG logo appears again and the TV function normally. Sometimes the software doesn't load and the magic remote doesn't work.  The software version is 3.6.0-1003(dreadlocks2-dorrigo). 
      Is this a problem with the software or hardware ? What is the possible solutiton for the problem ? Please help. 
      Thank you
