I had an Ethernet cable plugged in back and after I removed the cable from back of TV the performance was better. TV was prolly defaulting to the Ethernet cable.

Additionally, one night my 7900 was completely unresponsive to remote and the buttons on the side. I could not access Smart features, menu, inputs or settings. I was ready to call for service until I unplugged it from the wall for a few minutes it started performing normally. Perhaps the set had a power surge. I recently moved TV to another room and now realize I did not have TV on a surge protector.

Hope your issues can be fixed.

Consider yourself lucky. It happened sometime last year and I guess I just figured that a future update would of fixed it. I would always update normally whenever the tv detected an update via wifi. One day after I took one of the updates, the tv was just never the same. Wifi is totally broken for me right now. I have to plug in ethernet to get it to 'somewhat' connect. Even then with ethernet, the apps are mostly broken. It's to the point that I just kinda want to get rid of it or sell it but I don't want to sell it as a 'broken' smart TV.

The TV itself does function however perfectly, just all the smart features are essentially useless and navigating menus can be painfully slow at times. I can't use the features I used to like best about the TV like the LG smart remote app that allowed to take screenshots, etc. Luckily I have other sources for netflix, etc.

I don't have anything new to offer. If the suggestions on the last page don't work, I'd try contacting LG support. Hope you get it sorted.

Im currently on 05.08.14

Is there any way to either fix this issue or revert back to original firmware? I've run out of options.

Thanks
Tonight my 55LA7400 is getting update 05.09.02. Previous update was 05.08.04. I never got 05.08.14.

Thanks for heads up. I'll have to plug in my ethernet to see if I can see an update. Crossing my fingers but doubtful ill see improvements.

Wow.. amazing. It only took half a year but it seems this latest update has resolved my issues. Wifi works again, menu UI seems responsive, and I even launched some netflix. I don't think ill risk taking another update again. TV is finally back to normal.



Thanks

Did this by any chance give the TV the 3dgo app? Lg and sensio has an agreement that went into effect on Jan 1st. I saw the update but didn't install it yet. Thanks for any info
