Where to post bugs with a chance they will be read by those it concerns?


Recommended Posts

LG support is crap. No response at all or pre-made response textes only after weeks. Support is important, because we actually pay for it by buying the products. Since the TV is depending on software you provide and if this software has bugs, they must be removed, because this is part of warranty.
I posted a bug thread over at the developer forum, but no one reacted. Actually, I expected something like that an LG official reads it, puts it on a bug tracking list and comments "we are on it". That's how other companies do it.

So, where can we find a place to post our bugs so that they find their way to the developers?

This is a very good question.  Although the first couple of sentences are merely negative comments rather than a question.  I fear that those comments will impede responses to an otherwise good question.  I would like to know as well because I am a new LG smart TV owner and right away have noticed a serious flaw       In the software.  In many apps the Screen will go blank and an LG screensaver will appear while viewing the media.  I would like to know what triggers this to happen.  One would think it was static images or writing on the screen which would make sense but this is not the case as I have multiple apps which are interrupted by this screensaver.   I have noticed other comments about this issue going back to 2017 yet it is not fixed.  Also noteworthy is other Smart TV brands such as Samsung don’t do this using the very same apps.  So why is LG not addressing customer complaints?

Also a good question.

My "LG support is crap" doesn't come out of nowhere. I have contacted them and reported the problems and since I still am in warranty, of which I'm pretty sure of isn't only for hardware, I expect fixing. But to no avail. You get a preconfigured standard response mail and that's all.

      My TV has stopped recognising the live TV signal from the aerial since the OS updated recently. The aerial works fine when plugged into other devices but when plugged into the TV it doesn’t recognise the signal for days on end. When this happens, it will no longer allow me to do a signal test via the settings (the option is greyed out). I’m guessing it’s either a) a problem with the input (hardware) or; b) a problem with the OS (software).

      In this installment of On the Job, we go inside LG Experience Informatics (EI) Task to look at how LG leverages data analysis to uncover hidden needs and create personalized customer experiences that improve everyday life

      Hyper personalization is the new must. In this era, consumers are much more evolved in terms of their engagement with brands and are seeking products that can adapt to their individual needs and offer user experiences that suit their unique preferences and lifestyles. With LG Object Collection, which presents a range of chic, customizable living solutions that can elevate any home décor, and LG ThinQ UP Appliances, which allow users to select and add convenient, new features and functions, LG is at the forefront of the personalized appliance trend.

      When creating personalized products or services, it is crucial to first discover customers’ unvoiced needs – and this is where data collection and analysis are so important for a lifestyle innovator like LG. To enhance its capabilities and efficiency in this area, the company established Experience Informatics (EI) Task, a dedicated unit that uses large-scale quantitative analysis to thoroughly assess a diverse range of customer experience data. EI Task is enabling LG to better predict future purchasing intentions and gain greater insight into the lifestyles and needs of its customers.
      Recently, EI Task received a significant boost to its operations with the introduction of the Lifegraphy system which provides customer insights through customer-centric data structures and interpretation algorithms developed based on years of customer research experiences. Lifegraphy enables its users to comprehend customer experiences from multiple angles and flexibly explore customer needs by converting abstract concepts, including customer values and lifestyle, into numerical data.

      Before the invention of Lifegraphy, the task of understanding customers and uncovering what they really want was handled by LG personnel proficient in data analysis and statistics. Unfortunately, the considerable time and effort required to complete their research made it difficult to keep up with fast-changing industry trends and customer tastes. Moreover, challenges in sharing and interpreting data collected by different divisions and projects brought further inefficiency to the overall process.
      But now, thanks to the advent of the Lifegraphy system, any business unit or group within LG can accurately analyze customer data without requiring an expert team of analysts or statisticians to do so. As such, they can establish the initial design and marketing direction for new products much faster than before, meaning a shorter development period and more precise targeting of specific consumer segments. Another advantage of Lifegraphy is that, because it lessens the impact of personal opinions, the results it provides are more objective and, therefore, more reliable.

       Lee Kun-woo, lead of LG EI Task
      “The Lifegraphy system was designed based on a belief that, if data collected from extensive research become a tool and was used continuously by many people, it would contribute to developing products and services that offer better customer experiences,” said Lee Kun-woo, lead of EI Task.
      Many experts involved in creating this efficient system faced numerous challenges and obstacles along the way. The biggest problem to solve was how to visually express the digitized, abstract concepts the system delivers in a way that any employee could easily understand.

      Noh Eun-young, a specialist at LG EI Task
      “There were people who insisted on providing the collected data as-is, but we spent much time and effort to persuade and explain to them the importance of presenting data in a way that actually helps LG employees understand target customers,” said Noh Eun-young, a specialist at LG EI Task. “No matter how much data we have, it is meaningless if we cannot interpret it accurately, and that’s exactly what Lifegraphy helps us do.”

      LG’s newly introduced MoodUP refrigerator is an example of a successful product conceived with assistance from the Lifegraphy system and perfected by the talented designers at LG. The refrigerator boasts LED doors that can change color to match users’ moods or preferred decorating palettes – without the cost and hassle of having to physically replace the actual panels. Through the LG ThinQ app, users can choose from 22 colors for the upper door panel and 19 colors for the lower, and instantly apply their new selection whenever the mood takes them.
      Thanks to the convenient, effective Lifegraphy system and the endeavors of those who designed and use it, LG is bringing exciting, new innovations to the home appliance space and taking the personalized customer experience to a whole new level.

      I have accepted to update the TV firmware after being requeste many times by the menu. Big mistake!
      After the update was finished the screen remains black, but the LCD screen is back lit so I can see it's started.
      The magic remote has the microphone function and I can still search using the voice for youtube videos and the sound is playing.
      o the TV is functional just I have a black screen

      I tried after to run the update from USB after manually downloading this update: SW File(Version 05.30.11)
      from 
      link hidden, please login to view No menu is showing, screen is still black
      A folder was create by the TV and it contains a file
      D:\LG Smart TV\TN\INFO
      With this content:
      {"INFO":"{ \"core_os_release\": \"4.9.7-11\", \"returnValue\": true }{ \"device_name\": \"k5lp\", \"returnValue\": true }"}

      Any solution for me? Do I have to change the TV motherboard? I want a cheaper solution, not paying for a new motherboard in service.

      Hi Everyone,
       
      OK, so what does it take to have full Chromecast support in LG TVs (webOS)?
      a. Either builtin support.
      b. Via webOS app.
       
      The goal / use is simple as any other Chromecast device / TV: be able to say to "hey Google, play this video/music from service-X to LG-TV".
       
      Looking forward to good news and your thoughts.
       
      Thanks,
