Netflix App blocking my TV


Bruno Moya

Question

Hello everyone, hope you can help me!

I have this tv model 55UB850V-ZD . On Tuesday Netflix app stopped playing titles first telling me the "this title is not available for playing" if I tried again it got stuck sometimes at 20 and others to 24%. I have tried everything from switching off and on the TV , removing it from the power source for 60 seconds and 3 minutes as well, resetting the TV , getting out of my account and sign-in again even contacting Netflix which told me it was a hardware/software issue and that I should contact LG and LG telling me it is a Netflix issue.

One of the strange things I have seen as well is that when I get out of Netflix and enter my hdmi4 for example screen goes black and my TV gets blocked and I need to turn it off an on again, this does not happen with all the other apps that I have tested and work perfectly.

Sorry for such a long text, hope you can help me out.

Cordially

Bruno

I have fix it !! I believe so titles seem to play now.

What happened is that Netflix tried to load titles at 4k full hd quality on the LG TV and somehow the TV (maybe because it is old) froze. I entered my account settings and set my user default quality to HD and boom.

Hope I help someone with this solution.

I have the same issue. You really helped me with this because you made my tv usable again, but have you found a different way to solve this. Is it impossible to stream 4k Netflix videos in this TV?  Or does this problem mean that apparently we have a main board issue?

Hi, glad it was a fix. It is a pitty we can't play 4k titles, maybe it is because of the pass of time, the board has been slowing down on performance, or netflix 4k titles are playing in a way lg tv does not support. It is a pitty the netflix app is not updated anymore on old lg tv's.

Cordially,

Bruno

Bruno thank you for your reply, I'm trying to see if it's an issue from my internet provider and not from the TV.  I used to see 4K streaming in Netflix until 5 days ago. So I'm trying to figure out if my internet connection isn't stable enough to tream 4k. If that solves the problem I will come back with a new post. Thank you again

      UltraGear Promises Advanced Gaming Immersion by Adding Nano IPS with
      ATW Polarizer Technology, 48-inch OLEDs and 260Hz Refresh Rates to Latest Lineup
       
      SEOUL, May 25, 2022 — LG Electronics (LG) has announced the launch of its new UltraGear gaming monitor lineup (models 32GQ950, 32GQ850 and 48GQ900). With an all-new design language, the latest display tech and a range of gaming and connectivity features, the 2022 UltraGear gaming monitors have what it takes to satisfy gamers’ needs.
      Offering elite visual performance and speed, the flagship 32GQ950 comes equipped with a 4K Nano IPS display that features realistic color with Advanced True Wide (ATW) Polarizer technology, while the 32GQ850 has a QHD Nano IPS display with ATW and an ultra-high 240Hz refresh rate, overclocked (O/C) up to 260Hz. The new lineup also welcomes the 48GQ900, the UltraGear brand’s much-anticipated first entry into the OLED gaming monitor category.
      This year’s LG UltraGear models sport an even sleeker gaming aesthetic with sharp, angular stands and the new Hexagon Lighting. Along with the new design identity, LG’s 2022 monitors bring the latest HDMI 2.1 connectivity, enabling features such as variable refresh rate (VRR) and support for fast 4K gaming on PCs and the latest consoles. And, as one would expect, the new UltraGear lineup delivers beautiful, vivid picture quality and lightning-quick response time – the two 32-inchers courtesy of LG’s advanced Nano IPS 1 millisecond Gray-to-Gray (GTG) display technology and the 48GQ900 via a premium, 48-inch, 0.1 millisecond LG OLED panel.
      UltraGear 32GQ950 is a 4K resolution (3,840 x 2,160) gaming powerhouse that is sure to find a place on many gamers’ wish lists. The Nano IPS 1ms gaming display is LG’s first 4K model to implement ATW Polarizer technology, which improves the panel’s ability to ensure lively, accurate colors and deep, dark blacks across a wide viewing angle. VESA DisplayHDR 1000 certified, LG’s 32-inch monitor also offers high peak brightness (1,000 nits) and 98 percent coverage of the DCI-P3 color space, as well as easy connection to PCs and consoles with two HDMI 2.1 ports.
      With the highest refresh rate of the new lineup – 240Hz, O/C 260Hz – and a 1ms response time, the 32-inch UltraGear 32GQ850 provides the smooth, speedy performance that the latest games demand. LG’s VESA AdaptiveSync Display-certified monitor has a QHD (2,560 x 1,440) Nano IPS panel with ATW Polarizer technology that guarantees seamless visuals and consistent colors from almost any vantage point. The 32GQ850 also comes with VESA DisplayHDRTM 600 certification, covers 98 percent of DCI-P3 and has a three-sided borderless design that helps to draw gamers deeper into the action of their favorite titles.
      Notably, 2022 sees the arrival of LG UltraGear’s first OLED gaming monitor, the 48GQ900. A Red Dot and iF Design Award-winning product, the self-emissive, 48-inch 4K display boasts a 120Hz (O/C 138Hz) refresh rate, a 0.1ms response time, impeccable color accuracy and a fully-borderless design. Perfect for PC and console gaming, the new model offers the superb color reproduction and contrast of OLED and features LG’s anti-glare low reflection (AGLR) coating, which reduces visual distractions so that users can focus their attention fully on the gameplay. What’s more, the 48GQ900 comes with a remote control specially designed for enhanced gaming convenience and a stylish stand that provides optimal stability without intruding into the user’s desk or table space.
      To complete the gaming experience, LG’s latest UltraGear gaming monitors incorporate a 4-pole headphone jack that allows users to plug in a gaming headset and chat as they play. The 2022 models also offer the superior surround sound of DTS Headphone:X®, which reproduces every sound in the game with stunning clarity.
      Additionally, LG UltraGear is introducing its first-ever gaming pad and gaming mouse* this year. Supporting the precise control needed for fast-paced gaming, the comfortable-to-use UltraGear gaming pad is large enough to accommodate a mouse and keyboard, and even has customizable RGB lighting. The reversible pad is suitable for any genre of game or style of play, featuring a smooth, hard surface for maximum glide and a rougher fabric surface for better braking.
      “The latest LG UltraGear gaming monitors apply cutting-edge technology and design to raise the bar for the gaming display category,” said Seo Young-jae, senior vice president and head of the IT business unit of LG Electronics Business Solutions Company. “Ideal for both PC and console gaming, our new monitors offer features and capabilities that take the entire gaming experience to the next level. We will continue to solidify the UltraGear brand’s strong reputation with innovative products that put the needs of gamers first.”
      The latest UltraGear gaming monitors will be available starting this month in Japan with key markets in North America, Europe and Asia to follow.

      Hey there,  I have had a  OLED55B6P for ten months and I love it but

      I have a problem all a sudden, just today it starts to show a black screen with fire works every minutes if I don't press a button on the remote.

      I have no eco mode on, no power save modes on, TV firmwire is up to date, and tried turning off on and on the tv.

      anyone know how to fix?

      Hi,
      I have a Sony sound bar connected to my LG OLED CX via eARC. It was working fine. One day suddenly the sound bar stopped responding to the incoming audio from the TV. I tried all the ways - (PCM, Auto, Pass Through), TV reset, Additional settings eARC (on/off). But nothing worked. Escalated it to the LG CC. And the LG service representative advises me to change the mother board of the TV. I am wondering what went wrong with my 9 months old TV. Though it is still under warranty I dont want to go for a change of a component (if there is a work around). Sound bar is working perfectly with all other external devices. Awaiting for a solution or atleast a valid reason.

      Superb Gaming Monitors Boast the High Refresh Rates, Fast Response Times and Low Latency,
      Meeting Demands of Today’s Gamers and VESA’s New Display Standard

      SEOUL, May 23, 2022 — LG Electronics’ (LG) UltraGear gaming monitors (models 27GP950 and 27GP850) are the first in the world to earn VESA® AdaptiveSync Display certification, launched by the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA). The new VESA® AdaptiveSync Display logo helps consumers to easily identify and compare the variable refresh rate (VRR) performance of gaming displays supporting VESA’s Adaptive-Sync protocol before they buy.
      To be certified as the VESA AdaptiveSync Display, LG’s elite gaming monitors had to meet the exhaustive and rigorous requirements of the VESA Adaptive-Sync Display Compliance Test Specification (Adaptive-Sync Display CTS), which uses more than 50 test criteria to establish clear benchmarks for assessing monitors’ and laptops’ VRR capabilities. With high refresh rates, fast Gray-to-Gray (GTG) response times and low latency, the two UltraGear gaming monitors met or exceeded the test scores specified in VESA’s new open standard.
      LG’s AdaptiveSync Display-certified monitors, LG UltraGear 27GP950 and 27GP850, provide the level of visual performance needed for seamless gaming experiences. Both models met required scores across VESA’s Adaptive-Sync Display CTS, including in several key measurements such as refresh rate, screen-flicker and response time. The two 27-inch gaming monitors feature advanced LG Nano IPS panels offering high refresh rates and a 1 millisecond GTG response time, allowing fluid gaming play and sharp, clean images for both PC and console games.
      “The VESA Adaptive-Sync Display CTS creates a clear, consistent standard for display performance of gaming monitors and helps consumers to make informed purchasing decisions,” said Jim Choate, compliance program manager at VESA. “World’s first products to wear the new AdaptiveSync Display logo, LG’s UltraGear gaming monitors performed remarkably well in all applicable tests.”
      “We are proud the LG UltraGear became the first-ever monitors to receive VESA AdaptiveSync Display certification” said Seo Young-jae, senior vice president and head of the IT business unit of LG Electronics Business Solutions Company. “With upcoming 2022 models including UltraGear 27GP95R, we will not only meet the high standards of VESA’s performance tests, but also satisfy the expectations and diverse needs of today’s consumers.”

      Subtitles aren't appearing for certain shows(eg. Big Bang theory).NO option to change audio language,video quality. Certain shows are like watching snapshots at 10s interval(check Homeland). Cricket matches are having slow frames per second although i have good bandwidth and fps on my tv(LG UJ652T).  NO VIP option also.
