How to update your LG TV manually if you don’t have an Internet connection at home

Previously we counted them How is the process of installing software updates without the need for the Internet on Samsung TVs. In this article we will explain the procedure for LG TVs. And is that although the steps are similar, there are some differences that should be noted.

Issues to consider

The recommendations before starting this process are the same. And it is that we always consider that it is better to install such updates over the internet, since this way we will not have to reverse the process in case an update has been corrupted from the factory.

Another issue to take into account is that, although we do not need a connection on the TV, we must have access to the Internet externally to download the update. That is why if for some reason you cannot connect, you can always choose to borrow the connection from a friend or neighbor, or even download the update away from home.

How to update the TV step by step

First of all we must recognize the exact model of our television, as it will be important when applying the appropriate update. Information on LG televisions can be found in the section on “General” on the settings panel and selecting “TV Information”.

This information can also be found on the label on the back of the TV.. The model is referenced from the letters and numbers that we can see in red.

Once the exact model is known, we will have to enter the LG website to download the update manually. Here We must fill in the box with the serial model that we have previously pointed out. We can also find it by browsing the categories.

When we have found it, at the bottom we will have available the latest system firmware, a zip file that we will have to unzip, it includes an epk extension file that is the one we will use to update our television.

Once the file is obtained, we copy it to a USB (preferably empty and in FAT32 format) inside a folder that we will call ‘LG_DTV’. Then we insert the pendrive into one of the USB inputs of the television.

After all the steps, we will get an automatic notice on the TV that tells us that there is a USB update available. We click “Install” and wait for the process to finish.
