The LG UB8500 keeps turning off and on the second I turn the power on.  All devices are disconnected from it.  I am suspecting a bad power supply.  It could be the power cable but it is in there pretty tight. What do you think?

Asked by: CurtisWolf
Hi CurtisWolf. If you have checked to ensure that the power cord is firmly and securely inserted into the socket in the back of the LG 4K UHD Smart LED TV - 49'' Class (48.5'' Diag), Model # 49UB8500 then the issue could be with the power supply as you suspect. The TV will need to be inspected to diagnose the issue. Our Support Representatives at our Customer Support Center, (800) 243-0000 will be happy to assist you in making arrangements to have the TV inspected by an LG Authorized service technician or an LG Authorized Service Center. You can also visit our page at https://www.lg.com/us/support/find-service-center to see if there are any LG Authorized Service Centers near you that you can contact to make arrangements with to have the TV inspected...^IFV

Is there any other way to access the main menu on the tv besides the remote? I don't see any buttons on the tv, except for the joystick. The remote I have doesn't work.

Whats the best bluetooth dongle for this tv

Asked by: philwillow
We appreciate your interest in this television and its accessories. This TV model has no use for a Bluetooth Dongle, as it already has an integrated Bluetooth Module for operations with the Magic Motion Remote Control.

Im srry i see i mispelled sum words.. its doesnt have HDR capabilities but under my menu it says do i want it turned on or off? But i cant select any thing.. why? This refereing to the 49ub8500

Asked by: Chico62
We appreciate your interest in this television and its features. This model has not been designed for use with any HDR features or capabilities. It seems likely that this menu setting is being listed from an external device, such as a game system, and is simply being displayed on the TV.

how can I hook to a stereo and still use volume up and down to control sound

Asked by: wdfergu
We appreciate your interest in this television and its features. This model can connect to an external audio system using either an OPTICAL Digital Audio connection or by the AUDIO RETURN CHANNEL (ARC) over the HDMI2 port. Connecting the system using the HDMI port will allow for the TV remote to control many external devices using the CEC protocol.
