What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor Product I seem to have had the same issue as others with the LED lights going out and the screen turning black. I must be really lucky since it lasted 5 years! LED is not new technology so it must be a quality issue with LG. I'll find another manufacturer while I'm shopping for another TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 2007 and still running with no issues!! I bought this so many moons ago over 10 years. My son was 4 now he is 17. The only thing about this tv I can’t do what my smart tv does.like the WiFi aspect of watching YouTube and when I watch videos on YouTube it doesn’t show up....if anyone has learned how to do this on this tv please give me directions. Thank you! Other than that it’s a long lasting good tv that still looks the same and good coloring after 10 years@,,,

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Is there a buy back program for this model?? Loved the TV until backlight issues. I’ve had different LED strips replaced 3x’s already over the last year & now there is another out. I refuse to pay to have it fixed again as the money spent already could’ve purchased a new one. LG do you have a buy back program for this model??? Clearly there was a defect. I was given another LG as a gift from my job last month. I’m praying I don’t have the same issues. That would be tragic!!

How much did the 50ln5400 tv cost

Asked by: Ivan50ln5400
The pricing for the 2013 LG 50" Class (49.5" Diagonal) 1080p LED TV, 50LN5400 would have varied depending on which retail outlet or online site it was purchased from. We would have had a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP or Suggested Price) while it was a current model, which as the name implies is a "suggested price". Retailers very rarely sell at that price and would have sold it at their set price. Regrettably, we do not have information for what the suggested price was anymore...^IFV

Just wondering how much you think I should get on an insurance claim for this tv (accidental damage). It's a market value replacement.

Asked by: Haitch
Hi Haitch. The LG 60" Class (59.5" Diagonal) 1080p LED TV, Model # 60LN5400 is a 2013 TV and much like when you drive a car off a parking lot after you buy it, it starts to devaluate and there is no way to assess its market value. We strongly advise that you consult with your insurance agent on this...^IFV
