WiFi issues, drops continuously and sometimes switchs off


Richard Bowden

Question

Recently moved my 49SJ810V to another room where I can no longer cable to the router. It takes nearly 10mins for the WiFi search to find anything. Then sometimes fails to connect with correct login details. Then when it does it drops continuously and never stays for more than a few mins at at time. It even switches of the WiFi altogether!! Everything in my house connects fine and I've even got an even older LG up stairs that needs a WiFi dongle and I've just tried that and it works fine. Looks to me like its the software that is the issue. It has the latest  version installed.  I've done all that's recommended on the LG website. Any ideas?

I had a similar issue started occur recently with Wi-Fi dropping out, streaming media buffering (I'm on FTTP so shouldn't have been) then after a few days it started switching Wi-Fi off altogether and wouldn't turn back on at all.

I powered off at the plug for 5 minutes, Wi-Fi was fine for 2-3 minutes then dropped and switched off, when switching back on it just wasn't seeing my access point at all.

I factory reset, Wi-Fi was okay, reinstalled apps, halfway through logging into them all, Wi-Fi dropped again. Can't reconnect to it.

I started looking at new TV's from Richer Sounds, and was on the verge of purchasing a slightly larger model when I thought I'd have a look at replacing the network card.

Then...I found a YouTube video that instructed the following:

  1. Go to Settings
  2. General
  3. Location
  4. LG Services Location
  5. Select another country (it will warn you about losing access to certain services, accept this and TV will reboot)
  6. Go back to the same menu
  7. DISABLE the setting at the top, either called 'Automatically Detect' or 'Set Automatically'
  8. Reselect your correct Country in the list
  9. TV will reboot again
  10. RESULT! Do not re-enable that Detect Automatically setting - this seems to be a very weird bug where that setting is causing the network card to drop out.

Since doing this - no more buffering, no more Wi-Fi dropping or disabling itself, and everything is perfect.

Hope this helps you as it did me!

      Hi all!
      I am trying to connect the TV to my 2.4Ghz wifi because I have a Google Home mini and some smart lamps that only work on that 2.4Ghz frequency. This would ensure that everything was on the same network.

      When I configure the tv to connect to the 2.4Ghz wifi,  always gives me an error that it could not connect to the network. If I try to connect to the 5Ghz network (with a different name than the 2.4Ghz) it connects without problems. If I connect the cable tv it works too. All home devices that connect to the 2.4Ghz network are working fine. 
       
      Any solution to something that should be so simple?

      I have two LG TVs, 65SM8600PTA and OLED48A1PTA respectively. Both are connected to the same NAS router via LAN cable. Both can enter the NAS folder containing my Chinese drama series collection.
      65SM8600PTA can play everything smoothly. OLED48A1PTA always stucks at loading the drama series folder (which contains ~60 video files, each video is in the size range 400MB-2GB) for very long time, >3 minutes. Upon clicking into the last layer folder, the spinner spins for very long time while attempting to regenerate previews for this and parent folders. So if there is an option to skip generating video/image previews, then listing folder content can complete much faster, and then that will solve the problem.
      I would like request this additional option for OLED48A1PTA to skip generating preview so that NAS video list can show up quickly.
      OLED48A1PTA is bought from Shopee recently under 15-day-free-return policy, if you can push an update before 2022-02-10 that solves this problem, I will accept the product. Otherwise I will raise a return-and-refund request because the OLED screen also has vertical strip issue when displaying grey background.
      Thanks for your notification!

      Disruptive Concept in Ownership Extends Usability of Appliances
      That Can Be Upgraded to Meet New Usage Trends, Patterns

      SEOUL, Jan. 25, 2022 — LG Electronics (LG) is set to change the existing paradigm of home appliance usage with an upgradability option that adapts to the unique and changing lifestyles of customers. Developed under the concept, Evolving Appliances For You, LG upgradable appliances have the capability to incorporate new features developed in the future based on owners’ usage patterns and habits.
      What upgradability brings to the table is the ability to add a new function or convenience to an existing appliance through new software, new hardware or both. For example, users can improve the performance of the LG PuriCare air purifier when a new pet joins the family by upgrading with the Pet Care Filter to more thoroughly filter out pet fur and dander from the air.1 Upgradable LG dryers can be enhanced later on to handle different climates and fabrics with new accessories and software downloadable from the Upgrade Center in the LG ThinQ app.
      For the customer, upgradability enables the LG appliance to keep up with changing trends and usage patterns over the many years of that product’s lifespan, extending usefulness many times over. In all, LG is planning to introduce approximately 20 upgradable appliances this year.2
      “Upgradeability challenges the idea that expensive appliances are designed with planned obsolescence in mind,” said Lyu Jae-cheol, president of LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company. “We want customers to experience the feeling of getting a new washer or refrigerator throughout the entire lifecycle of an LG appliance, not just the first time they bring the item home.”
      Customers in specific markets can expect to see LG’s first upgradable washer and dryer later this year. Follow LG’s Home Appliance Instagram account () for more information when available.

      I recently updated the firmware on my  LG43UH610V.  Now I constantly get "Wired Lan cable disconnected" / "Wired network is connected" messages even while watching a video file from my NAS. The TV is connected and using the network while getting these messages. It has always been on a fixed IP address on the LAN.
