Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Tv but Direct TV users beware Nice Tv but could not totally pair up with my Direct TV Genie remote. Out of all the LG models available the 43LJ5500 is not in the list of codes... not the fault of LG...With the default code I could get the on/off & channel up/down to work but not the volume..but discovered it did work the stereo volume which we use instead of the TV Volume so it actually worked out in the end! SWEET

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great picture. It has a very good picture, but setup was a little tricky. And it would be nice to have access to Pandora to listen to music.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful TV So far, I like this tv very much. With it being a smart tv, there is not much to do, but push the right buttons. The problem I had, was the sparse information in the directions. Programming the satellite remote was a nightmare, it finally corrected itself, when LG did an update on the tv a few days ago, as a result, things are working smoothly.

I plug in an audio jack on my smart tv but the surround system is not working.  I tried the jack to my smart phone and it works. So i am not sure what seems to be the problem. 

Asked by: Ghia
Regrettably, the LG Full HD 1080p Smart LED TV - 43" Class (42.5" Diag), Model # 43LJ5500 does not have a headphone (3.5 mm) jack on it. The port that looks like a headphone jack is the Serial converter/RS-232C input jack which is usually labeled as "Service Only" or as RS-232C IN (Control & Service) and can be connected to an external control (such as a computer or an A/V control system) to control the product’s functions externally. It is the phone jack type on this TV and it does not output any audio at all...^IFV
