Some strange side menu was coming up on the left of the screen and I was having difficulty getting it to go away. Somehow the TV got kicked over into Demo/Store mode and I had to go in and manually change it back. I think it's stopped doing that now?
My video settings appear to be switching over to vivid on their own and I have to change it back to Game every time I use it now. Every time I turn the TV on or change the source it keeps flipping back to Vivid video. Not sure about the sound, I pay less attention to that I guess? Should probably check when I get home from work.
The brightness of the TV keeps dimming on me while playing games when it is in Game mode. Brightness settings shouldn't be changing on their own should they? I will pause and go into different menus and I come back to the game and boom it kicks over into the correct brightness again. Then a few minutes later it will slowly dim until it is dark and difficult to see again. Frustrating.
Anyone else experiencing anything like this with the latest firmware updates?
Longer answer; I'd try resetting to factory defaults, turning it off, and then turning it back on and redoing my settings to see if they stick. If not, I'd be contacting LG's support. Might ask if poltergeists are covered by their warranty.
Hope you get it sorted.
considering that everything else had been changed/set to defaults/etc
Checked video settings again and Eco mode was set to Auto.
Changed it to Off and that probably fixed it (Duh)
Haven't checked it yet. Will take a look at it again in the morning to see if anything resets again.
Online HD streaming is at best a crap shoot, and at worst impossible. Your connection speed, how many connections are sharing your modem, time of day, internet traffic in your area, how your modem and ISP connection handle continuous large data transfers, and whether your ISP throttles your connection while streaming are only a few of the potential problems making it a painful experience. And not all Netflix media is available in HD.
There's plenty of guides on the internet about optimizing your gear and connection, such as this:
This is where the problems start; Netflix transfers about 1GB/hour of data for standard resolutions, 3GB/hour for HD (720p), and 7GB/hour for Ultra HD (1080p equivalent). Netflix usage is listed here:
Not many consumer grade modems can handle 7GB/hour data transfers for extended periods of time, and that applies to many ISPs' connections too (you may need to manually reboot your modem every few days or so, and have your ISP reset your connection occasionally). I paid a lot for a good (Draytek) modem, which helped considerably, but I'm still borderline for Ultra HD speeds at just under 10 Mbps.
Haven't used Vudu, but Netflix bandwidth requirements are ridiculous. Considering I can watch NFL games in full HD on NFL Game Pass at their highest setting of 400 Kbps (totalling 4.32 GB of data transfer for 24 hours), Netflix has a long ways to go to become a mature HD source. Good luck!
I can't reprogram the Volume Up for my LG TV. I've both imported the LG TV settings from wifi detection and a manual add of the device. Model is 55LA7400-TC_03
Here's why I need to do this:
Send Vol. Up - result:
- LG TV volume increase
Harmony Vol. Up command
Send Vol. Up - result:
- LG TV volume increase
- PS Audio P3 Powerplant power off
This is driving me nuts. I did have the PS Audio Powerplant added as a device, but have since removed it. Any ideas?
The default setting for my HARMONY LG TV VOLUME UP command turns off my PS Audio unit.
The actual physical LG remote control does not.
It seems like the Harmony is sending two commands.
I raised inter key from 100ms to 300ms.
I don't have any power plant device in Harmony any longer.
Sorry I can't be of any help, but I would suggest playing with backlighting settings - be interesting to see if it still does it with backlighting set at 0 or 100. I might turn it off and unplug it for a minute to see if it resets. If not, possibly a factory reset (might want to save your settings first), or seeing if there's a software update. Hope you get it sorted.
Also, new 5.09.06 update today (I think that was the number?)
Anyone know what was in the update?
and used $5 + shipping:
Can't help with the software update.
This is my 55LA7400:
I too am curious if anyone has any input as to what the issue could be and if it's something that might be relatively easy to repair. Mine started doing this a few years ago actually, but I just dealt with it because it would only happen once in a blue moon. Now I usually have to turn the tv on and off several times before that section stays on. So for me at least it's not a permanent thing (yet). Sometimes it boots up okay on the first try, but more often than not I need to power it on and off.
