What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disposable TV lacking basic features. I really liked this TV until just after it went out of warranty, then the backlights started to burn out, so now I have a screen with lots of dark spots, which looks horrible. It's sad that LG doesn't make products that last (see other reviews regarding this model). It's also sad that LG is apparently OK with having 1 time customers that then move on to another brand. Also when using an antenna and selecting the Info button it always say "No Program Information" but the info displays on my other TVs. Seems like a pretty easy thing to display.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth it We bought this TV only two years ago and while watching TV tonight, our screen began flickering. Apparently the LED strips are made to be short lived. We won't be purchasing an LG tv again. Sad that manufacturers have to make TV's that go out perfectly at the time the warranty is up.

Which wireless speaker system is compatible?

Asked by: Jim Kuhn
Regrettably, there isn't a wireless speaker system that is compatible with the LG 47" Class (46.9" Diagonal) LED HDTV, Model # 47LB5900. This TV does not support Bluetooth so it cannot be paired with Bluetooth speakers...^IFV

I can't figure out how to hook up a sound bar to my 60LB5900 What do I need to change to make it optical output for sound

Asked by: Spr Dav
Once you connect the optical out from the TV to the sound bar, be sure to turn off the internal speakers of the TV for the sound to be routed to the optical output. On the TV go to: SETTINGS ➾ AUDIO ➙ Sound Out and make the selection. ^AC
