Frustrating Netflix connection


Recommended Posts

Can anyone help? Netflix has suddenly become inresponsive for the last month. Amazon Prime works great, so i know it isn't a problem with my internet connection. I've resorted to resetting the tv to its initial setting FOUR times. I've plugged and unplugged the router countless times (as suggested). It would enter netflix, but eventually go back to error tvq-st-120. 

model: UF830T

Country: Philippines

Help, please?

@nina san miguel Can you go into yout TV settings to check your firmware version? The latest is 04.26.10 and MAY have fixes for web interfaces that may help Netflix.

See:

and if you do not have that, read how to download it, and put it on to a USB stick (NOT inside a folder on the stick), and install from it.

@nina san miguel As you appear to be on the latest firmware (04.26.10) already, it is NOT worth trying to install the same level again.

Your issue might be something called DNS (it is how the browsers and any internet connection get from your device, to a known site, e.g. Microsoft.com to the actual computer server IP address closest to your area). Sometimes the "default" settings do not work very well, as it may rely on your ISP or router.

So, if you go to your NETWORK settings in your TV, in the DNS part, try putting in 8.8.8.8 (that is the public Google DNS service IP address), and some TV users find this fixes some odd intermittent APP failings, where some work OK, and others have odd issues. Don't forget to select the "save" for the new setting, as some UI (User Interface) windows need this (depends on the TV model), sometimes it is near the bottom, so easy to miss, before you come out of the settings UI/APP.

      Hi,
      My problem is that my Netflix app on my LG tv (OLED65B13LA) keeps selecting the leftmost button, it's impossible to scroll the cursor to the right to select another button. I tried resetting the tv to factory defaults - after installing Netflix again the issue is exactly the same.
      I also tried disconnecting the tv from power for a few minutes. Plus I contacted Netflix, but they said I need to contact TV manufacturer before they log a possible bug in the app :/.
      My Amazon Prime app works perfectly fine on the same tv.
      Any thoughts?

      Hi, 
      New user on here. 
      I bought this new TV last week and it is honestly driving me bananas. 
      When I click "Home" after using an App, etc, it brings me to the WebOS interface but then automatically selects the last used device (e.g. Fire stick, LG Channels, etc) despite me not wanting it to. 
      Is it possible to disable this, i.e. "Home" brings me to WebOS and stays there? I'm sure its a setting etc which I'm missing. 
      Device is LG UQ91 43 inch 4K Smart UHD TV, pretty sure its all up to date. 
      Thanks in advance.

      I have problems with one of my WebOS TVs which looks like a speed problem, but when I do a speed check on my iPhone from just a few feet away the connection speed looks fine.  Thanks,  Bob

      Built-in Remote-Working Features and Content Curation Services

      SEOUL, Nov. 8, 2023 — LG Electronics (LG) is unveiling its latest LG SMART Monitor lineup (models 32SR50F and 27SR50F). The versatile, new 31.5- and 27-inch monitors don’t require any PC connection at all, and are ideal for productivity. Along with advanced IPS displays that deliver true-to-life colors and strong contrast, LG SMART Monitors feature LG’s webOS 23 platform, which provides more convenience for working remotely as well as streaming favorite shows, sports and music.
      Great for entertainment and getting work done, LG SMART Monitors boast high-performance IPS displays and HDR 10 support. The vibrant, accurate images produced by the new monitors help bring content to life and also enhance the user’s experience when participating in conference calls, working on documents or researching on the Internet. With its 3-sided virtually borderless design, the 27-inch model presents a sleek, minimalist look that can elevate one’s space and boost the sense of immersion.
      Equipped with webOS 23, the latest LG SMART Monitors offer outstanding convenience. The 32SR50F and 27SR50F provide easy access to streaming apps1 which offer tailored recommendations for movies, series and music from the Home Board screen, and personalized sports profiles2 – complete with customizable sports service cards – that make it simple for users to keep up with the sports they love.

      Handy solutions for those working from home, the monitors come with built-in LG Home Office software that supports various productivity programs4 including Microsoft 365 and Google Calendar. LG SMART Monitors help further enhance workflow and remove the need to connect directly to a PC by allowing users to easily share content from their smart devices via AirPlay 2 and Miracast.
