What people are saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from LED Backlight failed after about 4 years Switched on the TV last night, got sound but black screen. Apparently a common problem with the LG 42-series is LED backlight failure, based on the numerous comments & YouTube videos showing how to replace the LED strips. Am currently exploring other brands to replace this LG. It was good while it lasted but didn't last.

Is my 42LN5400 1080p LED TV - 42'' Class (41.9'' Diag) a Smart TV? Or in other words, is it compatible for Roku or other streaming devices? Thank you!

Asked by: Sue Buschman
The LG 1080p LED TV - 42'' Class (41.9'' Diag), Model # 42LN5400 is not a Smart TV so it does not have built-in streaming apps nor does it have internet access which is needed for streaming from built-in apps. However, a TV does not need to be a 'Smart TV' to be able to stream from a Roku device or other streaming devices like Apple TV, Amazon Fire Sticks, or a Google Chrome cast that have built-in apps and are designed to connect to an HDMI port on a TV so you can stream from them. You can connect a streaming device to any of the two HDMI inputs on the TV to stream from them...^IFV
