I'm also having issues wth playback stuttering and various error codes - codes this far 1003, 6007, 3916. This has been happening for approximately 10 days; no issues previously 

Rebooted modem,  which temporarily works but then problem re-presents.  Re-linked TV to app with no success on eliminating errors.

It starts ok but when I select a program it just sits there with the 'wheel' turning. It works ok on my phone and ipad. Have tried updating tv operating system and iview app but they seem to be at the latest version. Anyone else having problems?


Yes, Yes i have exactly as you describe. Netflix and SBS on Demand both work fine but iView stopped last week.

Same  for me. LG WebOS latest version. iView app latest version (uninstalled, reinstalled, relinked, logged in). I know iView is no longer supported on an older LG Smart TV but, in that case the app doesn't even start. This time it starts, refreshes catalogue, navigates, launches a show/channel then just doesn't stream.

Inability to access Australia's  ABC Iview is likely due to the need to log into iview with a valid email and password which became necessary a few weeks ago.

On your TV you should get a message saying go here:

and a 4 character code to link a signed in device to the TV.

Worked fine for me.

The problem started for me when iview forced me to sign about two weeks ago. I set up an account, linked to the tv, selected a show and the video wouldn't play. The wheel just kept spinning . It worked fine the day before when I didn't have to log in. I tried relinking the user, reinstalling iview, rebooted modem, checked tv updates but nothing worked.

Finally I got sick of not being able to watch anything so I reset the tv to factory default and reinstalled iview, which fixed the problem. Now I just have to hide all the of the shopping channels and install the other apps.

Thanks Drew

did a factory reset and worked for me too!  Still haven’t received an answer from LG (apart from an acknowledgment and request for software versions) - maybe they will see these posts

LG responded to me and are attributing the issue to Abciview and have referred the master to them.  I have always used Abciview whilst signed in so not sure if that is actually my issue. That being said, the other day and  for the first time in weeks, I could watch uninterrupted so let's see how it goes.

      The built in Web Browser will not play Videos on SOME websites after updating to WebOS Version 04.40.25 and 04.40.70. The web sites otherwise work fine. Here is an example that won't play since the 04.40.25 update ...

      It would be amazing to be able to use the Philips HUE and synchronize the lights with the video and audio of the LG TV.

      LG Electronics Tennessee Plant is Selected as Industry’s First U.S.
      Home Appliance Lighthouse Factory by World Economic Forum

      SEOUL, Jan. 16, 2023 — LG Electronics’ (LG) home appliance manufacturing plant in the United States has been selected as a world-leading Lighthouse Factory by the
      link hidden, please login to view. The million-square-foot factory in Clarksville, Tennessee – the U.S. production base for LG’s award-winning washers and dryers – is the industry’s first home appliance plant in the United States to join the WEF’s global network. Also, it is the company’s second Lighthouse Factory, following on the heels of the LG Smart Park in Changwon, South Korea, which was selected by the WEF last year.
      A “Lighthouse Factory” is recognized by the WEF for its role in shaping the future of manufacturing through the integration of Internet of Things (IoT), big data, artificial intelligence (AI), robots and other Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies. Since 2018, the WEF has selected and added global factories to its network twice a year.
      LG’s world-class autonomous factory in Tennessee utilizes advanced digital technologies from AI and big data to IoT and robots. Completed at the end of 2018, the facility now operates three production lines for front-load and top-load washing machines and dryers. With an annual production capacity of 1.2 million washers and 600,000 dryers, the plant proactively responds to changing North American demand through local production. More than 900 people work at the LG home appliance factory in Montgomery County, Tenn.
      Featuring a complete integrated production system streamlined process to supply impeccable products to customers on time, each line carries out the entire manufacturing process of new models from making the parts to assembly and packaging. In addition, strict quality conditions are applied to all the assembly lines to heighten quality across the board, from parts to finished products.
      The LG Tennessee factory boasts a fully autonomous logistics system with 166 automated guided vehicles (AGVs) that transport parts around the plant. With three times more AGVs than the LG Smart Park, these robots improve overall productivity by freeing up people for other tasks.
      With the integration of parts production such as metal press processing, plastic injection molding, and painting – including LG’s own intelligent injection molding system – the company has increased component productivity by 21 percent.1 In addition, the plant recognizes and responds in advance to potential productivity issues through an advanced detection system. By applying data-based AI technology that accurately predicts washing machine performance, the number of tests and energy consumed during testing are reduced by 22 percent, while the defect rate has been reduced by more than 61 percent via quality optimization.2
      The plant is also maximizing workplace safety and operational efficiency by using robots for complicated, potentially dangerous tasks, such as assembling and lifting heavy parts and welding.
      To further improve efficiency, LG plans to establish a 5G connectivity network across the facility in the second half of this year, creating an environment where its many AGVs can transport materials faster and more accurately based on stable, uninterrupted communication. LG will also introduce Autonomous Mobile Robots that navigate the expansive facility with ease to enhance its logistics system.
      LG’s commitment to sustainability can be seen throughout the Tennessee factory, which transitioned to renewable energy completely already in 2022. The plant also uses a high-efficiency utility infrastructure, which supplies the power, steam and heat necessary to produce LG’s home appliance products with the help of the company’s advanced Building Energy Control (BECON) solution.
      “Along with the LG Smart Park, LG’s Tennessee factory represents our unmatched leadership in transforming manufacturing facilities into advanced, futuristic hubs utilizing the most revolutionary technologies,” said Lyu Jae-cheol, president of the LG Electronics Home Appliance & Air Solution Company. “Lighthouse Factory status exemplifies how LG continues to strive for providing differentiated customer experiences through customized manufacturing innovations.”

      CBS Catchup, Discovery+, POP player, and UKTV Play always need updating. Even seconds after you just updated them. It started doing this a few days ago.
      Who can I contact to get this fixed?
      Since the "apps need updating" notification now always appears when I switch the TV on, I now have no way of telling if anything really does need updating other than going into the LG content store, clicking Apps, clicking My Apps, and visually checking.
