What People Are Saying

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 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.

Hi I have a bought a 49LG5500 Model in USA and brought the TV to India. I tried to plug in the TV with a step down adaptor 220/110 V. However, the display is not turning on. Can I get some techinca support in India for the same.

Asked by: hkaktwan
Firstly, the LG Full HD 1080p Smart LED TV - 49" Class (48.5" Diag), Model # 49LJ5500 is a dual voltage TV (100~240Vac 50-60Hz) so you don't need a step-down adapter. The voltage is not the issue. What is an issue are the built-in tuners in the TV. This TV has an ATSC, an NTSC and a QAM tuner in it and none of those tuners are compatible with the Television Broadcast Standards used in India. You will not be able to receive any TV programming in India with this TV...^IFV
