    Today I decided to update my TV's firmware.
    I have correctly identified the model and downloaded the corresponding firmware. I followed the instructions which aren't exactly complex and everything was going fine. But about halfway through the update it tells me the software is corrupt and update has failed.

    So I turn it off, redownload the firmware and reformat the flash drive. Start the TV up and I have a new starting logo, just a slightly different LG badge. Then it stays like that, I can't even turn my TV off. It's completely bricked. The TV itself is only about a year old.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I think you need to contact LG Support soonest.

    Cheers,

    Already done. I realise things go wrong but bit of a joke if firmware is bricking TV's.

    Yes, I couldn't agree more and wish you luck getting it fixed.

    Cheers,

    Martin.
