Hello All,

Strange problem, all of a sudden no matter what I try u can't change the lock screen wallpaper. Trying from gallery doesn't work, neither does trying from that lock screen settings. It worked fine about a week ago and when I try it tells me it saved/applied but never changes. I tried going back to stock launcher from Nova just to make sure that wasn't the issue but it had no effect. Any ideas?

Just wanted to update to say I can change my wallpaper by going to settings, lock screen, wallpaper and choosing wallpaper gallery, which is what the phone came pre loaded with. Choosing gallery gets the same result as before... The phone says it changes it but really doesn't.

solved lg g3 lockscreen wallpaper
The problem is with the sd card. It seems that its some kind of abug in the software that reads the files from the sd card.
Just move the files from your ad card to the phone memory, and it will change the Lockscreen wallpaper.

Cheers
