Browser Trouble


Ken Gendron

Question

I currently ow n a 2016   (LG) webOS TV 6200

Now am finding out I have a "Fixed" Browser in my TV and it's becoming a Dinosaur. There are no avalanche updates I can find and now can't even load pages on certain websites. Does anyone know how to resolve this problem? 

I can't do shit with this TV anymore

@Ken Gendron It is well known that LG (and other manufacturers) rarely make updates to the in-built browsers in older TV models.  The problem is that they cannot update them to cover modern technology, when that technology has FAR surpassed the fixed harware in the TV (chip-sets, memory, CPU power etc), especially in an item that is over 5 years old.

What functions or web-sites do you need to use on the TV, that you cannot use properly with a Laptop or PC, or iPAD?

Well that helped me quite a bit, so what should I do? Throw it in the Trash? 😆 Lol. I grew up in the 60s Tin foil on the rabbit ears and pliers on top of the set. TVs had to last a minimum 10 yrs.

Ya know I don't even own a desktop or laptop. Because About 5 yrs ago I bought a higher.  end Motorola E5 play. Cost me almost $500. I actually fell so in love with it. One day was cleaning said what do I need these "Old Dinosaurs" for?

So I threw them in the trash. Was before I learned Android and Laptops/Desktops are NOT comparable. Lol 😂 which is why I'm so angry with my TV cause now can't use the Browser to full capacity. Am gonna have to "Bite that Bullet" sooner or later. But my cellphone is almost a Dinosaur also. But it is REALLY lightning Fast. So here's a trivia Question for you.. What were the pliers on top of the TV set used for?????

Anyone out there know???

Although I appreciate the timely response.

Thank you

      My Smart TV LGwebOS TV OLED55 B8PLA with software version 05.50.15
      It is impossible to install some apps for regional TV channels because the browser is incompatible. How do I update the browser or how do I install a different browser on my TV ? Downloading a file is not supported.  Automatic update is active. Thanks in advance.

      The Web browser app did no longer start on Oled48c25lb
      When i try to start it the logo appears during 2 or 3 seconds; then the TV return to the home menu
      TV is up to date
      As the web browser is an installed app i cannot delete it for trying a reinstall
      There is no other web browser app available on the LG store

      Hello
      When I try to watch replay or live TV from Belgian casts in the browser I have error messages:
      - for Auvio (RTBF) it is purely incompatible
      - for RTLPlay , the message says that the browser version is too old and has to be updated.
      But...
      It is impossible to install alternative browser on LG smart TV, or to update the LG one.
      WebOS is not really a good idea, or at least it should be more "open" for the apps that are not proposed or updated.
      I know it is possible to share from other machines (tablet, phone or computer) but I want to use my TV "alone" too!
      Do you have a solution (other then buying a chromecast or equivalent device?)
      Thank you
