First time was when I was browsing around the CinemaNow app and the second time was within the YouTube app.
That rules out the HDMI issue.
My house is only 20 years old, and grounding is not an issue.
I see at the top of this page someone else is experiencing the resetting/rebooting issue. This is my second set... I also browsed around Amazon feedback and it appears that many others have experienced this issue. Is this a known issue with these sets? Is there a bad batch out there?
Can someone please shed some light on this. I love the TV and really want to keep it, but random resetting/rebooting is annoying!
Thanks!
Andrew

OK, so I did some testing. It does seem as if the rebooting issue goes away when I disconnect not just the ethernet, but the wifi also. I basically disable both. Obviously this clearly defeats the purpose of having a smart TV because you lose all of the network functionality. It seems as if this has been an issue with LG TV's for a year or more. Is there any insight on whether or not LG is planning to fix this bug, or whether there is a better workaround rather than just disconnecting all network capabilities?

Thanks!
Andrew

Netgear XAVB5004 from Amazon. It was $130.00 or thereabouts. I needed this one because I wanted the 4-port switch to handle both the LM7600 and the PS3.

I considered this one as well, but I didn't like the fact that the 4 port switch was mounted on the wall outlet box. I preferred the Netgear's ability to locate the 4 port switch away from the wall outlet.

Yes, I'd say that is below the acceptable line. I don't recall mine having quite that much flashlighting, but it was close and after calibrating myself I've got it down to where I don't even see it. I'd definitely recommend trying to tweak things to see how bad of a problem you have before going the replace route.

It must be with just some setups. Mine does not reboot, it is always connected to the internet, wireless. Most do not, there must be some common thing that triggers it.....

I think I remember reading somewhere in an LM series thread that someone resolved their rebooting issue by disabling Plex. Are you using Plex?

After posting this comment I just read the most recent entry in the LM8600 thread and it is regarding the Plex reboot issue.

No, no Plex installed. I do have other DLNA via a Sonos system appearing. Tampa, do you?

I also read there was a new firmware release? I'm on 4.20.18. What does 4.30 fix?

What's up with that?

Anyone know why I wouldn't have the latest software update?
I'm up in CA ...could that be why.... not sure why that would make a difference
post #2320 of 3922
Well I just spent 2 hours or more reading this thread thru from page 1....what a saga!!....Its been over 10 years since ive bought a new tv, and after reading i learned so much about what im about to get into before i even have one yet. I had know idea there was so many things to consider and worry about when getting a new TV these days.
so i got to page 65 and will finish the thread later but thought i would jump to the end just to say, i ordered a lm7600 over the internet and now after reading im really wondering what kind of luck i will have with my first kick at that can...im preparing to send it back as many times as it takes until i get an acceptable product...hopefully i wont have to send it back at all....playing the panel lottery!smile.gif

1.i was gonna order a universal remote for it in the meantime while im waiting for the TV's arrival and was wondering if the harmony 650 would be a decent choice and allow me to enter the service menu:
http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product/logitech-logitech-harmony-650-universal-remote-915-000160/10169082.aspx?path=17b3effda66fb1a4dfa7487a3a7b658ben02

2.i have the shaw cable remote that came with my HD pvr/cable bundle ...do you think this remote may be able to access the service menu....its a type of universal remote as well?

3.i thought i would start with using a dvd calibrator and use the tv for a month to make sure it was okay and didnt need returning before i bother getting it professionally calibrated by a tech.
is there a recommendation on a particular dvd cal...ive read some have used WOW but is there anything better and where would i find it?


thanks for all the info here and for any advice, much appreciated!

I have the Harmony 700, and when I added the 7600 it actually added the service menu code on it's own. ("In Start") (I just got this remote)

If it actually has a service menu the remote could conceivably do it. My experience has been those type of receivers have a code - sometimes a sequence of up arrows, ff, etc... that is used with the regular remote, my Dish receiver does, and my neighbor's Charter receiver does or even a Roku does. But if you know yours needs a special remote very possible the Harmony can be programmed.

I would use the Cnet settings, which to me make skin as about as good as I have seen, and the overall picture has a feel of a professional calibration. (I did not have a pro one done to this TV, but have in the past) Then make the minor adjustments with the calibration blu-ray. (Not on a DVD and not on a DVD player) There are others out there, I was happy with WOW it really does what is needed. It suggested minor adjustments to the Cnet settings, but the color bars were exactly correct with the Cnet settings.

That should more than be good until you get a pro calibration if you are getting one. I decided this time because I am happy with the picture to go a different direction and instead of a pro calibration, get the amazing Darbee. But I am sure a pro can get even more out of the TV, they usually can.

OK, great news! This morning I updated the TV from the 4.20.18 to the 4.31.xx version of the firmware. So far, after about 3 hours, I have not seen a reboot/restart... and I've been connected to the network. Hopefully this new firmware solved the problem.

Thanks a lot for the help....ive ordered the WOW and a remote and i've bookmarked the Cnet cal. settings.
...it will probably be a week or so before I have the 7600 delivered but will report my experiences once i've had a go at it.
Happy New Years

47LM7600 owners 2 weeks now. Only words of praise, only hiccup is ARC failure after yesterday's firmware update, which resolved after a reboot (power off).

Out of the box it is quite dim, but playing with picture settimgs got it right.

Very impressed with 3D, did not know passive glasses could bring such an image (have active LEDs with the HC9000D in the basement HT).

BTW it replaced a Sony KDL Z Series that lasted 2 years only, after other failed receivers, dictaphone, and speaker. I don't wish the ESL with attitudes gang from Laredo TX Service Center upon anyone so Goodbye Sony, like forever!

Hi!
I'm a newbie here. Picked up the 55lm7600 on Thanksgiving weekend from Best Buy, they price matched the TV when it was on AMAZON for 1299. I love the TV and I have had no problems whatsoever. This is the greatest tv in the world. That being said, I have been hearing rumors of people having AMAZON Video app on their lg lm7600 model... Is this true? How do I get it on my tv? My software is 4.31.30
post #2327 of 3922
just an FYI for people considering buying a LG 47" TV,
at futureshop in canada the 47lm7600 and the 47lm9600 are the selling for the same price.
47lm7600-regular 1399.00
47lm9600-on sale 1399.00

i talk with the salesman to ask why that would be, and all he said was because the 9600's have been discontinued because they are to expensive to build?

if you were gonna buy one, not having already bought a TV, which would you choose?

Got my 55LM7600 at FS for 1299

Microcenter had the 55LM8600 for $1299 last week. It wasn't listed on their website. But, several stores like the one in Rockville, MD had quite a few in stock. Great price for a 240 hz, dual core, 3d tv.

post #2331 of 3922
Which futureshop? is it a demo/refurb unit or brand new one? FS price is 1799 right now. If you could scan or take a photo of your receipt that would be really helpful.
thanks!

Wow, that's a great price. I paid $1540.00 for my 55lm7600 two months ago at HHGreg. Love the TV.

A great app to get for your smart phone (mine is Android) when shopping at BB or any store that price matches is called "RedLaser". You just scan the barcode and it brings up not only local competitors but also all the online prices for that particular item. I just showed it to the BB associate with all the various prices and picked the lowest when I bought my TV.

I'm sure they just LOVED that. LOL.

I essentially did this when purchasing my 65LM6200. I conceded the tax, but they still refused to price match. I walked and bought it on Amazon. It's interesting to hear my State argue that the reason for taxing Amazon sales is primarily due to making local businesses competitive again.
