Difficulties when connecting the TV set-top box
If Android TV connects via Wi-Fi, the problem could be an unstable Internet connection. The power of the above type of signal is affected by many obstacles: large furniture, walls, the work of other devices and so on. In budget models often used Wi-Fi controllers are not of the highest quality. To solve the situation, place the set-top box as close as possible to the router. If this does not help, it is recommended to change the Wi-Fi channel or change the encryption of the router. In this case it is better to use a wired Internet. This signal is much more reliable.
In this case, if the gadget is fixed, but there is no picture on the screen, the cause is most likely the wrong cable connection. It may not be tightly inserted into the socket or the connector is incorrect.
- Reconnect the cables, check their condition.
- Use a different cable.
- Check settings. A specific HDMI input must be selected in the TV settings.
If the problems remain, it is recommended to contact us for help.

Reinstall the video player or choose a different one. If the router is too far away from the set-top box, it is recommended to connect to the Internet using a LAN cable.

IVI App is not working. Hasn’t worked for a few days and it’s still not working. LG said that the problem is not with the TV but with your application. Note that the firmware version is the latest 06.01.24, TV model LG 42LW575S. The application opens. Selecting a movie. A commercial runs, a movie starts, interrupts, and the following message appears: “Unable to process request.Try Again”. Throws me back to the Premium home page.

Hello. There is currently a problem with watching videos in the ivi app for TV?
Watching. LG TV, Smart TV. Via the application ivi.The message is exactly the same, as users have already written about. I start up, choose a movie (I tried a dozen different ones), watch the ads, the movie starts and after a few seconds. “Failed to process request” please sort it out. P.S I blame the new version of the program. Never had this before, until one of the last updates 🙁
Update. Found the solution to the problem thanks to LG tech support. I checked other online movie theaters. same story. The solution is as follows: Go to “Home”. “Settings.”. “Support.”. “Initialize (reset) Premium card” After that Premium will be reloaded and be happy. And ivi.The solution is: “Initialize (reset) the premium card.
Thanks to Oleg. Made an initialization. Everything works.
I have a 32LV3700. There is no “Support” in “Settings”. “Initialize (reset) the premium card” and there is “Settings”. “Network”. “Setting up Smart TV’. “Reset.”. “Deactivate device”. And what?
Good day. For me, unfortunately, “Initialize (Reset) Premium Card” did not solve the problem. TV. LG 32LV3700. What I have noticed. Maybe it would help IVI support service. “Failed to process request” appears only when selecting a movie not yet viewed from the menu, when viewing from “View History” (registered user) there are no problems. Т.е. If you find a movie you want that you haven’t watched on IVI, start it up, and it crashes a few seconds after the movie starts, then the movie appears in the “History” and you can watch it from there after restarting IVI. We hope the problem will be solved as soon as possible.
LG 2011 TVs can occasionally have problems with watching videos in the ivi app. when watching a video the app can close.

Good afternoon! You write that in the 2011 model year. the app doesn’t work. Now it really does not work. And why did it work before and you can watch movies? As you have changed your application we have problems. What is the purpose of its presence in our TV?
On TV LG 47LM640T, a similar story. Starting with the update of the design of the iwi app when watching movies the app drops out in the premium block. If you watch a TV series, it skips to the commercials for the next episode. This can happen ten times or more per movie. It just became impossible to watch. I have to reopen and look where I left off. And the rewind works in increments of 10 minutes. As a result, I have to watch the rest of the movie on another theater. I know for sure it was not like that before. Here are examples where it flies out. The TV series The Other Side of the Moon, Life on Mars, the movie 100 million euros. This is from the last one.
Hello! On TV LG 42LN613V watch the movie via IVI application constantly crashes about 5-8 times per film. I have had this problem since I bought the TV at the end of 2013. Upgraded firmware 2 times. The error was always like this. It’s a problem, it’s rewinding. Always rewinds to about 1/10 of the movie length. After the exit, I have to rewatch the movie moments. TV firmware version: 04.22.07
Hardware problems with the Smart TV
Sometimes it happens that the TV seems to be connected to the Internet, but still does not enter the Smart. After making sure on the other device that the problem is not with the Internet connection, we start looking for problems with the TV:
- Technical work on the manufacturer’s servers. You just need to know that one day it can happen. No one will warn you about the start of the work, and you will learn that everything is in order the next time you turn on your TV
- Also common problem is outdated Smart TV firmware. TVs are usually updated automatically via the internet, but there are some occasional malfunctions. Then you either have to run the update manually via the Internet, or download the file with the update to a flash drive and update from the flash drive. Old firmware can cause applications that don’t work, like YouTube on Philips TVs. Warning! You only need to download the firmware specifically for your TV model! Installing the wrong firmware can cause damage to your TV.
- Hardware malfunction TV. If software errors can be fixed at home, in the case of hardware problems it is better to apply to a certified service center (especially if the TV is under warranty).

Standby mode is the main reason for the display to stop working, but it does not turn off the device. That is, the plasma works, but it does not manifest itself in any way. Eliminate this problem is extremely simple, just use the remote control and switch mode by pressing the “Standby” key.
Let us immediately note that this option does not block the power adapter, so the screen is always “at the ready”, of course, that this has a negative impact on the performance of the device, because it becomes too vulnerable to voltage fluctuations.
The wrong source is another reason why the TV does not turn on. It is possible that the user has previously activated AV or HDMI, accordingly, you should switch to the original position to watch TV broadcasts. Sometimes this happens after the user has connected a laptop to the TV. You just need to switch the source using the remote control.
LG TV Remote setup
So, if the connection between the devices has been established, it is possible to start LG TV Remote. Open the program on your smartphone and press the “Device Scan” button.
If everything is ok, it will find our TV. Select it.
At this point, the code must appear on the TV screen (in the lower right corner).
After that, you will still see a window with the user agreement, just click “Accept”.
The coolest thing, of course, is the cursor. You just swipe your smartphone and the cursor moves across the TV screen. And on the right side there is a virtual scroll wheel, a volume control button, a back button, and a button to move the icons. Like this:
On the screen from which you can control the cursor, is also available as a game joystick button (see screenshot above). If you click on it, it opens a joystick that you can use to control games.
On the main window, you can see two buttons for channel switching and two for volume control. And 6 more buttons that allow quick access to these functions:
- Launch Smart TV
- Access to the list of applications
- Launch 3D
- Digital panel for switching channels
- Opening channel list (if I’m not mistaken, I just don’t have my antenna connected right now and this button is not active)
- And selecting a signal source
If you move the screen to the left, you will open a window with three icons:
- Premium. access to applications from the premium section.
- My apps. You can see all the apps that you have installed on your TV and run them directly from your phone.
- SmartShare is an app that allows you to connect different devices to the TV and manage media content. I will try to write more about this in a separate article.
I like the app very much! It works fine and is very easy to connect and set up.
Today it just updated, and became even more beautiful and comfortable.
To use the Smart TV function, when there is an opportunity to control the cursor, is much better and more enjoyable. In the same browser to navigate sites is much more convenient. And you don’t have to buy an expensive accessory at all. I’m talking about the LG Magic Remote.
