LG OLED55C8PTA wifi issue after latest software update

Recommended Posts

Nothing of the above suggestions work really. and connecting a cable is not an option for me.

I have a 65E8PLA, was expensive and I feel it was a waste of money - low quality software, and already dead spots on the screen (due to subtitles)

Are we sure LG are aware of this issue?

Not sure..but so many end users are raising this issue on different forums. But apparently disconnecting from wifi ap and reconnecting back works. I have tested quite a few times. If you are still under warranty get it exchanged for your dead spot issue.

I have extended warranty, but per my understanding this is normal and not covered by warranty. Are you sure?

It is not a "dead" spot per se, it is a region with dimmer pixels where the subtitles are. Tried running the rejuvenation thingy even twice, it didn't assist (and I know it just kills the other pixels so it looks the same)

I tried all tricks with disconnecting connecting, connecting to other, changing between 5 and 2.4, it always fails after a few minutes.

I'm using now my nvidia shield for netflix, until LG fixes it (which I doubt they will)

Solutions

  1. Use wired connection, fool proof solution.
  2. Turn off Airplay. Turn off Quick start (from General settings). Still you will encounter this problem but less frequently. Once this happens turn off the tv using the remote. As quick start is disabled, when you turn it on back the wifi connection would be renewed and you will get normal speed. So simple solution is turn off and turn on.

I've already turned off quick settings but how to turn off Airplay??

I really doubt whether LG would fix this issue with an update

Frankly I don't know. It should be a feature to stop that notification. Looks like you are saved.

Actually you don't need to turn off Airplay. We thought it might have some impact but no.

Hi all,

LG has updated the software version to 05.30.10. I have upgraded and so far Wifi working flawlessly. Try it out. I believe LG has fixed it.

I am not so sure.

Whenever I run network test from TV netflix I get 8-12Mb (each time running it I get a different reading, ran it 5 times)

If I run the same test from the netflix on my nvidia shield, on the same wifi, sitting next to the TV - it produces a solid 65Mb all the time (5 times ran)

They may have fixed some flakiness issue with the wifi device driver, but it is obvious the TV is still sick.

Not sure when I'll be able to find a TV manufacturer that has solid HW and FW engineers, it may seem all of them have issues.

Ok... so I tested the firmware, it did no fix the wifi issue. Still disconnects.

I wonder if LG really knows of this issue.

Any idea how to open a bug in their system?

Sorry to hear that it did not work out for you.

I have thoroughly tested wifi of my TV all day today and it is working flawlessly for me.

      Merhaba arkadaşlar,
      55LB670V-ZA smart Tv mevcut, Tv açılışta LG logosu bekleme bekleme süresi uzadı. Bazen takılı da kalıyor, TV'yi kapatıp açınca düzeliyor. Bazı formlarda Yazılım güncellemesi yapılması gerekli olduğu belirtilmiş, LG nin kendi işletim ve TV de olan son yazılımı 05.05.70 mevcut webOS 1.4.0-2532 (afro-ashley) mevcut. Yeni firmware ve webOS sürüm nereden bulabilir ve yükleyebilirim. Yardımcı olursanız çok sevinirim.
      Teşekkürler

      Hello friends,
      55LB670V-ZA smart TV is available, the waiting time on the LG logo screen at the TV startup has been extended. Sometimes it gets stuck, it gets better when the TV is turned off and on. In some forms, it has been stated that it is necessary to update the software, LG's own page and the latest software 05.05.70 available on the TV is webOS 1.4.0-2532 (afro-ashley). Where can I find and install the new firmware and webOS version. I would be glad if you help.
      Thank you

      Does anyone else have an issue with the CX not displaying inputs after an input selection change?
      I found a YouTube video discussing this issue: 
      and in one of the comments, someone recommended disabling the Quick Select+ option; someone else suggested disabling the AMD Freesync option to fix the issue.
      I did both and that seems to correct the issue, but these are features that I paid for.  Does anyone else have this problem?  Just wondering if I have a defective unit.
      Thanks,
