This leap forward in picture quality is the reason you wanted HDTV in the first place. Full HD 1080p meets the highest standards for high definition, displaying 1,080 (progressive) lines of resolution on screen for a clearer, more detailed image that is simply breathtaking.
LED uses tiny, energy-efficient light-emitting diodes to illuminate the picture. The new standard in HDTVs, LED is superior to older CCFL technology, making slimmer televisions possible, with amazing brightness, clarity and color detail.
Our Motion Clarity Index (MCI) rates how well LG LCD televisions display fast motion. This figure represents not only the benefits of our enhanced frame rates but also our detailed backlight scanning, advanced local dimming, and powerful video processing engine. A higher MCI is better, and this television has earned a rating of 120.

Lower left screen does a 1sec flash (dims in&out)For those who have this similar problem, I simply went to the picture setting, then adjusted all the options (Color, sharpness, brightness, contrast, and backlight) to zero. when I adjusted the Backlight, then flash stopped. When I reached 70 & 71 it then restarted. the backlight is most likely going out, but not completely. Simply adjust to a lower backlight brightness until the flash stops or until you fix or upgrade.

What is the size of the bolt that fits in the back to mount on the wall
Asked by: dksaulssr1
We appreciate your interest in this television and its accessories. A wall mounting bracket would need 4 machine screws measuring M6. The length will depend upon the thickness of the bracket and any spacers being used.
