What People Are Saying

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 484 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Great price I purchased the LG 50" and loved the price, picture quality Sound needs improvement. August 8, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Panel FAILED at 13 Months Awful! I purchased this TV and 13 months later, the panel malfunctioned. Service shop could not repair it. There are others who have reported short panel life for this LG TV. I will not ever purchase an LG TV again. July 24, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by LED Backlight died after 14 months LED Backlight went out 14 months after a purchased it. This is the second LG TV in last years that died on me. Luckily, I purchased a extended warranty. July 13, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great quality at great price Picture is bright and clear, very sharp. I have an antenna for local stations that is run through my computer and Dish satellite service. So, I have to use 2 of the inputs and both work beautifully and are easy to switch between. I wanted a 42" screen and they were hard to find. LG had one and I will go to them first the next time I buy this or any electronics or appliances. Pricing is very competitive and reasonable. July 11, 2015
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good TV Purchased this TV in 5/2015. As of date I'm pleased with it. July 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this TV The pic is bright and so clear you can see people make up on live TV this is the bomb BUT!!!!! THE Speakers in the back to turn it up to hear it behind the set is deafening so I have to buy the LG sound bar to get the sound out the front ...that is much better .. the sound bad speaker underneath is exposed and the bass make the tv stand vibrate but all and all the tv is my baby June 19, 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by LG 47" Piece of garbage This TV died after 1 year and 360 days... DO NO BUY THIS June 7, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by bright and clear Very clear and bright screen. Always smooth with no motion blur. Watching movies is a pleasure on this tv. It doesnt have alot of un-needed plastic around edge of screen. And the remote also works with my LG bluray player. The only thing that it could use is another hdmi. Otherwise, wonderful.

Answer: 
We appreciate your interest in this television. Unfortunately, the 50LN5400 does not have a connection available by which it might send an audio signal to another device (headset) using RED/WHITE audio cables. The only audio output on this TV is the OPTICAL Digital Audio Output jack.

Proper screw size for mounting?

What is the right screw size/thread for mounting this tv to a free standing swivel tv stand? I just purchased this tv to replace my old 37 inch but the thread on the screws is bigger than the thread on the new LG. I'm not concerned about weight because the old 37 inch tv weighed almost 42lbs and this new LG only weighs 31, my only concern was finding the right screw so I do not damage the tv.

Answer: 
We appreciate your interest in this television. According to page 15 of the owner’s manual, The 50LN5400 TV will require four M6 machine screws. The length of the screws will depend upon any spacers that might be in use with this mounting bracket, as well as the thickness of the bracket itself.

Answers

Answer: 
If the option for the close caption is greyed out then you would have to look for options to enable captions depending on the connection that you have. If you are using a cable or satellite box or a convertor box, the boxes should have an option to activate captions. You may need to contact the provider or manufacturer. If you are using standard cable or an antenna, the coaxial cable must be connected to the television’s tuner. If the TV is not tuning the stations, it cannot provide the captions.
