Web browser on lg smart tv


Novice Member
Hello everyone.
I have Lg smart tv sm8500 PLA,which is not even 2 years old and last week I've noticed that web browser doesn't work anymore.When I click on the web browser icon,nothing happens.Everything else works fine,youtube,netflix....
Tried unplugged it for 15 minutes and still does't work.I know,you guys know alot about tv's and was hoping if somene has any idea how to fix it.I can try factory reset,but I have a feeling it won't fix this thing.Thanx for the tips in advance.

Check for firmware update to the TV and if there is none then try a factory reset, there is not much else you can do as its a closed system.

Did check,but the firmware is the latest.What if I download and try to reinstall the firmware from usb?Is that an option?
