WiFi and remote control are broken on a 49sj800v-zb


Recommended Posts

Hello, the wifi of my smart TV is broken since the last update.
The remote control from my phone too when i use an opérational ethernet connection.

Tried : 
Full setting reset
Reboot
Power reset

Observed :
After the power reset and unplugged during at least 10 min, the WiFi networks was at new listed but impossible to connect, it says WiFi network not found.
After a new power off, the searching of wifi networks didn't end without result.
The remote control also lag a lot each 10 seconds and during 3 or 4 seconds.

TV Informations :
Model : 49SJ800V-ZB
Devide Name : [LG] webOS TV SJ800V
Serial Number : 711MAVDM8903
webOS TV Version : 3.9.0-62709 (dreadlocks2-dudhwa)
MAC  Wired : 38:8C:50:F3:2B:5D
MAC Wireless : 7C:1C:4E:A0:E8:C7 

ESN : LGTV20171=11002626448
VSN : 5DBF066A
Widevine : LGTV17CLGE005126094

Question :
Is there a way to downgrade by putting the firmware on a USB Key with a FAT 32 filesystem on to be sure it could be read by the TV ?

Thank you in advance for your help.

LG WiFi modules burn like matches from static, AC surges, or unexpected AC loss.

Older model also had bad connectors.

 

It seems, LG uses intentionally weak WiFi-module circuit for phasing out TVs of older non-serviced models. (See Wiki: "Sony timer").

It is very rude, since Philips just uses "grease leaking" remote controls, which become sticky and slimy after 4-5 years, telling you to buy a new TV. On the other hand, Asus uses non-cooled transistor RF switches in their routers, which degrade in 2-4 years, effectively disconnecting the antenna from the transciever...At least LG allows you to watch TV without the magic control.

      Hi
      I have LG C3 connected to yamaha A-S501 via optical cable.
       
      When i pair the devices with universal control both power and volume features works as intended.
      After pairing i cannot turn on or off connected device, but volume works.
       
      It's like option to send power signal via IR is turned off and i cannot find option in settings to change it.
       
      Please help, i just replaced AMP explicitly to have this feature

      Hi
      I currently have CA DacMagic 100 connected via optical + CA A1 AMP, this is quite cumbersome and doesn't work with universal control.
      I know that i will have to buy some hardware to have proper universal control, however i can't find any reliable information on which amp does support it and which doesn't. 
       
      It would be great if list of supported devices would be available.
      If not then recomendation for AMPs that works well with optical + simple DALI oberon stereo satellite setup is also solution.
       
      PS1. Sorry if this duplicate but i couldn't find anything meaningful after few days of googling.
      PS2. I've heard that Denon AVR-X3600H works but this is massive overkill for what i need (i don't indend to go beyond stereo, not even 2+1).

      I have a UK6300 LG TV. It has always worked faultlessly. However it now will not show the pointer unless I restart it and then it only there of only for 20 seconds and then it is gone. The LAN cable notification constantly disconnects and reconnects. The Web Browser no longer opens on my selected page. The Software version is the latest and when I tried to manually update the software in case the auto update got corrupted it will not recognize the USB drive as having the software on it. The software browser version is 05.50.15.
      Any ideas what to do. I have two other LG TV's and all work perfectly.

      I have a  LG OLED55C14LB WebOS TV in the same room as my xubuntu desktop computer and router.

      I have installed Gnome Network Displays on the Linux PC and both machines are on the same 5G network.

      When I connect the PC to the TV via WiFi the TV puts up a 'cancel' option and no option to connect. The Network display app only has an option to 'Return' which closes the connection.

      If I do nothing and wait the connection times out and returns to the TV program. The TV is obviously waiting for permission to connect.

      I cannot see any way to 'accept' the connection via the TV remote. Can anyone tell me how to accept the connection?
      In addition, is it possible to have the TV remember the WiFi password? Passwords are complex nowadays and it is a pain to keep having to input it. This make casting your desktop a chore.

      I can’t use my remote with the new update. 17. Something I think?
      OK my 55” is a few years old but it was working fine until an automatic update on an unsupported TV! I mean, why update unsupported tv’s with untested software? 
      Planned obsolescence - making us upgrade? Well, it’s the last LG telly I will buy for sure
