Step 5: Enter the Credentials to connect to the WiFi network.

Step 6: Once connected, you can download and install the LG ThinQ app on your Android or iPhone smartphone, which helps you control the TV from your phone.

Troubleshooting LG TV Not Connecting to WiFi

Sometimes, your TV might have a few hiccups that might cause it to not connect to the WiFi network that is saved to the TV. In this case, do the following

1. Restart your LG Smart TV

The good old switch-off switch-on method works the majority of times. In this case, restarting the LG Smart TV should do the trick.

2. Disable or Turn Off Quickstart Feature

  • You can disable this by pressing the Settings button on the remote and navigating to all settings.
  • Now, scroll over to General. Followed by Quickstart.
  • You can select the Off option to turn Quickstart feature off.

Ensure that your router has not reached the maximum amount of devices that it can allow to connect to it. Make sure that you haven’t changed the network password. If you have done so, then it might be time to forget the current network on the TV and connect it back again with the new password.
