This troubleshooting guide will examine why the LG content store is missing and some methods to fix it.
Why is my LG Content store missing?
The majority of the time, the reason why your LG content store is missing is usually because your TV has lost connection to the internet.
Software issues can also cause the LG content store missing problems.
How to fix the LG TV content store missing
- Soft Reset your TV
- Power Cycle your Router

Method 1: Ensure your LG Smart TV is connected to the Internet
If the LG TV content store is not working, you must ensure your LG TV has an active connection to the internet.
When you are offline, you cannot access the LG content store.
Method 2: Soft Reset your LG TV (All LG Models)
Performing a soft reset of your TV will usually fix the majority of reasons why the LG TV content store is missing.
Unplug your LG TV and wait 60 seconds before plugging it back in.
What does a soft reset do?
The restart allows any updates downloaded in the background to install and start successfully.
The soft reset clears the system cache and makes a new connection to your internet/router.
Method 3. Reset your Router
Another common reason is a bad or failing internet connection.
The power cycling combination for your LG TV and Router will resolve 90% of the LG TV app content issues.
How do I reset my router?
The easiest way to reset your router is to unplug it from the wall socket for 30 seconds before plugging it back in.
This action will “power-cycle” your router and establish a new connection with your LG TV.
Why does resetting your router fix the LG TV app store issue?
Think of all the devices that are and have been connected to the router. I’m sure that in today’s digital world, quite a few devices are connected to the router.
Eventually, the network can get congested, and the connection to your TV can be compromised.
When the reset occurs, your TV should quickly reconnect to a new fresh connection, and the restart will resolve most connection problems.

Method 4: Update your LG TV software
The LG content store may be missing due to older, depreciated firmware that has not been updated.
Most LG TVs have automatic updates enabled by default; the updates should install automatically, presuming that your TV is connected to the internet.
Even with this setting enabled, it is possible that updates can be missed or an installation can be interrupted and thus cause issues with your TV.
We strongly recommend you update your LG TV firmware to ensure you have the latest software, access to new apps, and an improved viewing experience.
Ultimately, regular updates improve your viewing experience and give you better security & privacy protection.
How to update your LG firmware
Assuming your TV is turned on, hit the settings button on the remote.
Now you will see the setting menu on the TV’s left side (Please note that this may vary depending on the model of your LG TV).
At the bottom of the row of icons, you should see the all settings button. Please select this option to proceed to the next menu.
Now navigate down to “SUPPORT” on the new menu that appears and then select “SOFTWARE UPDATE.”
Now you can activate the automatic update feature and check for new updates.
Once the updates have been installed, restart your TV to see if the LG TV content store is missing.
Method 5: Change your Country Settings
Sometimes your Country settings, especially if they have been incorrectly set, can cause the LG TV content store not to function correctly.
To access the country settings:
- Settings (on remote)
- All Settings
- Country Settings
Try to reset your country settings to see if that will resolve the issue.
