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.

@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.

      hi, Friends,

      i have finally fixed the HDMI ARC issue.
      Apparently some people also had the same issue and couldnt figure out whats wrong.
      After reading through AVSForums, I finally understood that LG had a bug in HDMI operation as well..

      The problem happens when your TV is already sending sound through HDMI ARC to a AVR and you try to connect additional sources like dth or blueray player to additional HDMI ports of TV and AVR. Once you add additional sources, you might try to use LG's device connector setting to control the device and this is where HDMI ARC stops working.

      Solution:
      disconnect all hdmi ports of TV and AVR.
      Full reset TV and AVR.
      Only Connect HDMI ARC port of TV with HDMI ARC OUT of AVR. Enable ARC feature on both TV and AVR. Open LG TV internal app,
      and check if sound is coming properly to AVR.
      Now you Connect All additional sources to other HDMI ports of TV and nothing should be connected to AVR.
      You may use LG device connector setting to configure the magic remote to control them.

      MY current setup of TV:
      HDMI 1: Airtel DTH.
      HDMI 2: ARC connected to Denon AVR 1500H.
      HDMI 3: ACT Television(Using this to play hotstar premium content as LG inbuilt APP is not playing it)

      Good news:
      LG magic remote can control all 3 devices seamlessly and thats a great ease for customers.
      I shall appreciate LG for this.

      Is there an LG WebOS-TV App that allows the simple play of a video file from an SMB (Windows) share. DNLA is very inconvenient, and there are no user access rights.
      I want to browse shared folders (from my NAS), select a video file, click, watch, and then delete it.

      Hi, I purchased my SMART TV model 43LF6300 in the year 2016 and current Firmware Version 04.06.40. Every one India using their favorite app like Disney Hotstar+, Zee5, Aaha and many more apps but those are not available on my TV which is annoying.. I spent Rs. 54000 to buy LG Smart TV but all the latest apps are not available. Please release the latest Web OS for these models at least Beta version unless the TVs like this will be useless and no one trust LG products. Thanks in advance and hope to receive latest Web OS soon.

      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
