What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from ***B-E-W-A-R-E: This TV has NO audio out*** So you CANNOT simply connect it to your hifi or home theatre amp to get decent sound. And I’m not just talking about digital audio out (optical) – there isn’t even a Mini Jack output. A good screen completely ruined by an absurd oversight that is a total deal breaker.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent performance at a nice price! Having recently found this model on sale prompted us to replace an ageing plasma bigscreen. It was a breeze to set up and its ample features controvert its price point. We are delighted with the performance of this TV so far and look forward to continued satisfaction with LG quality

I know there are soundbars that can connect via USB. Would that work with this tv?

My HDMI for my xfinity cable box isn’t connecting. It’s showing no signal. When I switched ports with my Apple TV it appears that the port is working fine. I have also tried switching HDMI cables. Any suggestions on how to resolve the issue? 

Asked by: Ains
Hello Ains, you may need to request a new box from Comcast if you have confirmed the port works fine. ^AC

I have an LG soundbar and connected it from USB to USB and it won't recognize?

Asked by: dfent23
The USB port on the LG Full HD 1080p LED TV - 49" Class (48.5" Diag), Model # 49LJ5100 cannot be connected to a Sound Bar, it will not work. Not sure which LG Sound Bar you have, but LG Sound Bars don't have USB ports on them. They will either have an HDMI input or an Optical Digital Audio In or a Coaxial Digital In that you can use to connect to a TV that has the appropriate ports as outputs.
