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.

FIRMWARE UPDATES WILL ALSO UPDATE LG SMART TV AND LG APPS AT THE SAME TIME.
