Answer: 
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this television. There are several reasons lines might appear on the screen; not all of which are an actual problem. Lines can be visible on the screen simply due to sitting too close to the screen. If this is not the case, then there could be a problem with the screen or one of the control boards involved. The unit would require service to make such a determination. To make service arrangements, you may either contact our Customer Interactive Center at 800-243-0000, or you can check our Repair Provider Lookup on our website, at http://www.lg.com/us/support/repair....

Answer: 
There is one method by which these video files might be displayed on the television. This would be by connecting your computer to the TV, using either the RGB or DVI/HDMI, playing the file on the computer, and using the TV as a 55” monitor. The USB port on this device is designed for photos or music files only.

Answers

Answer: 
The audio output on this television is not set up to force the conversion of the audio signal to PCM. It is designed to pass the signal through as originally configured. If the original audio is PCM, then it will pass through as PCM. However, if it is a different format, then it will be sent through in the different format, which may not be compatible with this audio system.
