LW6500 LG SMART 3D suddenly stopped recognizing externa USBs

by vivgro / February 13, 2016 12:52 AM PST

My LG LW6500 was recognizing external USB drives till a few days back. Suddenly it has stopped working. Whenever a USB is attached in either of the ports there is no message or response. It behaves like nothing has been attached. Can someone in forum help me overcome this issue. Please note that all my USBs are working fine & were actually opening. Thanks

Are sticks still read? Then it could be a power issue. Try an externally powered disk or a powered USB hub.

If sticks aren't read either, something might be wrong with the TV.

sticks are read by my laptop but not by the TV.

Have a friend create a new stick for you to test with.

If that fails, call LG for repair.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
