The firmware that powers your LG Smart TV with Google TV should be updated from time to time, in order to enhance your experience and improve its operation. Thankfully, this can be done easily and quickly, right at home.
WATCH THE VIDEO TO LEARN MORE.
HOW OFTEN DO I NEED TO UPDATE MY FIRMWARE?
Firmware updates don't happen frequently, so you should be fine checking for updates every other month.
HOW DO I CHECK FOR, AND DOWNLOAD, AVAILABLE FIRMWARE UPDATES?
Before you do anything, make sure you have an Ethernet cord connected directly from your router to your television. Wireless Internet connections are not reliable enough for firmware updates.
Use this diagram if you need help getting set up:
ONCE YOUR TV HAS A WIRED CONNECTION, DO THE FOLLOWING:
- Press the MENU.
- Click SYSTEM SETTINGS.
- Then ABOUT.
- Then SYSTEM UPDATES.
- You'll be advised that your system is currently up to date...or requested to select CHECK NOW for the latest update. If a new version is available, it downloads automatically.
DO FIRMWARE UPDATES ALSO UPDATE LG SMART TV AND LG APPS?
No, but you can find updates for these services in the same menu as SOFTWARE UPDATES.
