The problem will be fixed if the TV and operating system are reset. Follow the instructions below:

  1. Press and hold the volume and power buttons for around 12 seconds.
  2. When you see the LG bootup logo, let go of the keys.

Both the TV and the software must be rebooted after you see the logo. If that doesn’t work, try the following:

  1. Turn on the LG TV.
  2. Press and hold the on/off button for 3 seconds, or until the lights turn off.
  3. Restart the TV and make sure you see the LG WebOS logo.

Please keep in mind that following this step will only reset the operating system, not the TV. If the problem is with the television, you may need to reset the television as well.
