LG WebOS

Before You Begin

  1. You should have either configured a Cloud Server in Userful Manager or set up an On-Premise server.

  2. The design of your system has followed the Network Design Requirements for Userful

  3. Your LG WebOS devices are unboxed, mounted, powered, and have network and Internet access.

Perform a Factory Reset

It is strongly recommended that even new out-of-box devices have a factory reset performed on them before proceeding.

Open the menu by pressing the settings button on the remote (Settings or icon)

Go to the Admin tab and turn on Admin settings. The default admin password for webOS 4.0 displays is 000000 (six zeroes).

Perform a factory reset, and allow the device to reset itself.

  1. Open the Settings menu, go to “Ez Setting” and then “Video Wall”

  9. Press Confirm

  10. Wait for the download to complete and the app to install. This process should take less than one minute

  11. Turn the display off, wait 10 seconds, and turn it back on

The display should now auto-launch uClient after a few seconds and display a pairing code.

Install uClient on all devices before moving on
