Hi there and welcome

This can be requesting an update for the firmware which we can do via the LG website or a specific app your using on the TV is requesting it be updated.

Or even a device connected to the TV

Can you tell me please exactly what you are doing and the exact text of the update message when it appears please.

Thank you

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
