Proceed with the following steps to re-initiate the software update process.Allow the TV to automatically reboot and download the Premium Application update.Some software updates contain two distinct releases: one to support the main TV functions, and the other for Premium Applications.Any new updates for Premium Applications occur after the main update has been completely installed.If for any reason the Premium Application update fails, the download can be manually initiated following these steps.Some software updates require the download of large files which may take longer to complete.( I know quite a few people on the forums or even in some LG videos via comments have been also complaining about this problem)Is there any notes as to what it does? I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down.
To inquire if a new version of software is available, select Check Update Version, then press WHEEL or ENTER.
If Automatic update mode is set, a new version of software is automatically downloaded without prompting.
To prevent the TV searching for updates turn Software Update to Off.
Also, LG software updates are how LG adds new apps to its Smart TVs for customers to access.
According to LG, updating the firmware should take less than eight minutes and can be initiated through your LG TV's menu using the remote control.
I also e-mailed LG, and they said it is designed this way.
