LG Channels Not Working (How To Fix This Issue)

If LG Channels aren’t working on your TV, it could be due to a slow network connection, LG’s server being down, or a temporary glitch in the TV’s system.

Geo-restrictions might also be a factor.

In this guide, we’ll walk you through simple steps to get LG Channels working again.

Let’s move on…

Step 1) Perform an HDMI Reset (Power Cycle)

To do this:

  • Turn off the TV using the power button on the remote or the TV itself.
  • Unplug the TV’s power cord from the electrical outlet.
  • Wait for at least 5 minutes to drain residual power.
  • Power the TV back on.

Repeat the same process for your Modem/Router.

After the power cycle, check if LG Channels is working. If not, move on to the next step.

Pro Tip: Make sure your internet connection is strong enough. Visit fast.com to test it. If the connection is good, wait a few hours for LG’s server issues to be resolved.

Step 2) Toggle the ‘LG Channels’ Option

Here’s how:

  1. Go to Settings on your LG TV.
  2. Find the “Channels” option.
  3. Under “Channels,” locate “LG Channels” and toggle it OFF.
  4. Wait for a few moments.
  5. Toggle “LG Channels” back ON.

Wait for a few minutes for it to recalibrate.

Check if LG Channels is working properly now.

Note: If you can’t find the setting in the menu, navigate to ‘LG Content Store,’ search for ‘LG Channels,’ remove and reinstall it. If not found, change your TV’s location to ‘US,’ ‘UK,’ or ‘Canada,’ and then retry.

Step 3) Remove the Buggy App

Occasionally, the problem arises because other apps you’ve added clash with the LG Channels app.

This usually occurs when the LG Channels app is not up to date or when a particular third-party app has issues with its files.

To troubleshoot, think about whether the problem began after you added a new app or adjusted settings.

If the problem started after adding an app, just uninstall that problematic app, and LG Channels should go back to working smoothly.

Step 4) Factory Reset the TV

I usually don’t recommend doing this right away, but if nothing else works, it’s worth a shot.

When you reset the TV to its factory settings, everything – settings, apps, and your personal stuff – gets wiped out, and the TV goes back to how it was when you first bought it.

Resetting an LG TV, though, isn’t too hard, you have to do it carefully.
