Issue to turn on the tvHi all, I bought an LG 50UHB5500, it was ok for a couple of year, then, suddenly, it turned off and I couldn’t turn on anymore. The ref light flash 3 times, that’s it. I tried everything without success.

Buy extended service!Bought this unit about 2 years ago. About 6 months ago turned set off when done watching. Next morning my wive turned on, power light flashed 3 times and that was it! Extremely disappointed. In less than 18 months: from new to junk. I would never buy another LG without Googling the model first and BUY THE EXTENDED WARRANTY SERVICE!

Was a great TV, can't believe it barely lasted 2yrThis TV was bought just over two years ago. Everything was working fine until the other day I turn it on and the LG logo flashes on the screen and it went to black. I've tried everything to reset even the 6hr unplug cycle. Nothing works, I can't believe I paid good money for what I thought was a good to and turns into a loss. LG has lost my confidence as a customer at this point.
