Half of the screen suddenly shows a purple mat over the image. Why?

The TV was bought just over a year ago and has only been used for video games very infrequently -- at most 1 weekend a month. The unit has hardly been used yet today, half of the sceen turned purple when turned on, and no amount of fiddling with the controls (via the remote) corrects it. As a test, it was disconnected from the xbox and attached to cable TV -- still the same symptom. Even when disconnected from all imputs, the left half of the screen remains purple -- the right half is fine. It is a 42" LCD LG TV bought in Dec 2009.

According to this site and specs it is supposed to. This is taken directly from this site:
Special Features: Magic Motion Remote Compatible Yes (Included)
Cabinet/Accessories: Remote Control Motion Remote + CI S-Con

I purchased this television at Sams Club and their site shows it is supposed to come with the Magic Motion remote as well.

Answer: 
I'm sorry but the LK550 does not come with the motion remote.
It is compatible so the motion remote must be purchased separately.

Thank you.

No, but the picture is so good you might think it is 3D. I've never seen a picture so real.

Answer: 
Yes, this television can link to your home network. It will require either a LAN connection or the AN-WF100 wireless adaptor. Once these are connected to your router, then the unit can view files over your DLNA file share server.

Channel Labelling?

Can the 42LK550 label channels, so that you can tag "NBC" to a channel for example?

Ever think you's be able to access almost unlimited entertainment access to movies, shows and apps from the Internet, straight to your TV and without a computer? With Smart TV entertainment access on the LK550, you can. Or that you could view sports and fast action like you were actually there, in stunning detail? With its 1080p Full HD and TruMotion 120Hz refresh rate, you can have that too.
