I had my mainboard replaced in Feb on my LS5700 because I was experiencing the same thing. Worked for a few weeks but admittedly I wasn't doing a tonne of streaming through it. Over the weekend it started forgetting the Wifi again, locking up, and dropping my streaming. I called the techs who fixed my TV and they said I had to call LG back again since their ticket was closed. Then about 30 minutes later one of the techs from the shop called me back because he over heard my conversation.
Seems there is a problem with the LS5700's that he confirmed with his contact at LG, and it is software based, whatever is in the new OS that we have seems to be causing these issues. They are working on a fix but I don't have an ETA.
What is odd is that I've got the same TV as you in my basement and I'm not experiencing any streaming issues, but I'll have to double check what OS is on there.
I'm not sure if I post in this thread or start a new one.
I have had the above tv for about a year, normal volume level is 10 - 15 from the tv, if I play a DVD we have to adjust the volume to 95 - 100. I thought this was normal or our old DVD player but I just recently started streaming movies through amazon and have the same issue, volume needs to be about 100.
Is there a setting that I have missed to correct this, or is this normal?
This is certainly not normal. Are you listening to the audio through the TV's speakers?
Thanks, I will try that tonight.
Thank You Rudy!!
Most of the settings on my TV was about the same as you had suggested. I believe the only change was in clear voice and volume control. I set clear voice to on, level 3, and now the sound from a DVD is the same as regular TV.
Again thanks so much!
Hi guys! I was hoping someone could help me out. This television worked great since I bought in '12 until I unplugged it 2 days ago because a huge storm was coming and I wanted to protect it from a surge. I've had a TV completely fail because of a surge in the past and didn't want to go through that again. When I plugged it back it failed to pick up any digital stations. I called tech support and they said there was nothing they could do. They said they could send a technician out for about $100 and that was just to do a diagnostic. Obviously, I've tried Settings>Auto Tuning but it doesn't pick up my free over the air digital channels anymore. Does anyone have any advice? I tried restoring the factory settings but that fails to remove the new firmware. It only removes the individuals settings which is stupid. Before I did this though, I went to one of my previously working stations and it said signal strength was 100% but that the station was "scrambled." Any ideas would be most welcome.
Hi guys, I still haven't gotten any responses but having same issue. Also, I can't seem to connect to my network so I can stream movies anymore...anything???
