Answer: 
We appreciate your interest in this television and its capabilities. Connect your computer to the TV using either the RGB/VGA cable or an HDMI cable. Set you computer resolution to 1024x768 at 60Hz for ease in connections. For the best picture, set it to 1360x768 at 59.799Hz. This will all allow the TV to operate as a monitor for your computer. Finally, set the Netflix feature for operation as normal through the laptop.

We appreciate your interest in this television. If you do not have a cable service, you will simply need to consider different Digital TV Antennas. The TV already has the Digital Tuner required for the mandated digital broadcasts.

Answer: 
Typically, a power cord is not the cause of a power failure on a product, and the 60,000 viewing hours is a measurement for the panel capabilities. It is still possible for one of the computer boards, such as the power supply, to fail before that time. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair.... If you would still like to attempt it, accessories can be obtained through our parts distributor, MCM Electronics. Their contact number, for placing orders, is 800-824-9491. You can also use their website, at http://www.mcmelectronics.com/conte.... The Power Cord for this television is EAD60817901.
