Thanks a million for the help on the Factory Reset. Unfortuately, that did not remedy my real problem as I thoguht it would.I cannot connect to Netflix. I had no problem with connecting to it a few weeks ago. Now I keep getting a message that states My ethernet cable not connected. It is CONNECTED as I have my computers getting a signal and I have CHECKED and the Cable is also correctly connected to the tv. What I think I need to do is get into the Ethernet settings on my LG tv. Again any help greatly appreciated.

Sorry but that was the limit of my help.

I did search the manual for "Ethernet" but it came up blank, so I am not sure what ethernet cable this is, or what it does on this computer.

You say this worked before so can't you set this up the same way?

One option I can think of, perhaps the ethernet cable is damaged.

Didn't the TV come with a manual?

And my apologies for the proviso. I always get a little concerned when I see any 'factory reset'. Happy
