Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good only for short time This tv has a great picture, but after 3 years the picture is gone. Started with some occasional flashing circles for a few weeks and now no picture at all. The sound works. Assume it's backlight or a board, but not really worth repairing. Should last longer than 3 years. Probably won't buy another LG.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Large White Dots on the Screen I have a 42" LG TV Model 42LB5600 that is 2 1/2 years old and is beginning to lose it's LED Diffusers (problem researched on-line). First three white dots appeared on the screen, then a few days later four more appeared, then several weeks later three more appeared. These are in three columns, three each in the first two columns, and four in the third (looking from right to left on the screen). Will only replace with another LG if they can verify that they have improved the attachment method of the LED Diffusers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flashing screen I have had this tv for 2 years and the screen flashes and then goes black still have sound. I see your tv's have a lot of issues with this and its ridiculous for what we pay for a flat screen and it only last a year or 2. i would rather buy tv's like we ussed to have cause at least they last a long time. Some of us can not afford to keep replacing our tv's. You should recall them and fix them for us beings there is such a problem with your tv's.

How to connect stereo to Tv

Asked by: Ms77
We appreciate your interest in this television and its operations. An external audio system can be connected by way of the OPTICAL Digital Audio Out port on the back of the TV. This is the only option provided for connecting an external system.
