What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality TV for reasonable price We bought this TV for den to replace a smaller unit. We are very please with the size and resolution. We cut the cable 2 years ago and view broadcast digital TV, DVDs and subscription movies. We use Android tablets, phones and Google Chromecast devices. The TV supports these media and USB sticks. It's easy to change devices. Our only issue with the TV and why it doesn't get 5 stars is the lack of audio output jack or wireless audio.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LG43lj5000 I bought this TV in sept. 2017. I like the tv very much, but it has one annoying feature. The female voice that comes on when the tv is turned on, and when you raise or lower the volume. I can't find a way to stop the voice

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for our Bedroom This Tv has the features I was looking for. The picture and sound is very clear. I have a 60" LG smart tv in the living room an I am very satisfied with both.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Please give us something back! Good picture, easy setup, just ... the sound is not so good. Okay, this applies to all new TVs: No stereo outputs! PLEASE give us this; I know it doesn't cost that much at the manufacturing level, and for those of us streaming and receiving OTA ... we need this for better sound than the tiny speakers modern TVs provide.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Best garbage ever. This is the best garbage I bought for $$$. Above all with a LG logo. The sound quality is very poor. Thought I would add a soundbar...found out no optical port...No Coaxial port either. Bought 3.5mm RCA cable only to realize there is no setting (menu) to change audio out. I am really disappointed with LG. Till today I thought LG is good but no more. Thank you LG.

Hello We just bought an lg 43lj51. We are trying to hook it up to our home theatre, so that the TV audio can be played in surround sound. But the audio output only shows a slot for headphones. Does this TV support optical digital audio cable?

Good Day, ahm i just wanna ask how to put the sound from 43lj5000 to my dvd player? using RCA? badly needed. Thanks

Asked by: Ronel cupon
The LG Full HD 1080p LED TV - 43" Class (42.5" Diag), Model # 43LJ5000 is an entry-level TV that is designed for people who are not looking to add a Sound Bar, receiver or Home Theater System to their TVs and it does not have any audio output ports that you can connect to other devices. It does have 2 x HDMI® ports and a Shared Composite/Component port that can be used to connect external devices like your DVD player so you can play the sound from those through the TV's speakers. Which ports you connect to will depend on what type of DVD player you have. If it's a Progressive scan DVD Player that has an HDMI® Output, you can use that to connect to the TV. Other types of DVD player may connect via their RCA outputs and those can be connected to the TV's Shared Composite/Component port on the TV...^IFV
