Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flickering on and off We have had this TV just one month shy of 2 years with absolutely no complaints. A couple of months ago it developed a white spot leading me to think one of the LEDs fell off. My husband could live with that. This morning it started flickering on and off and is completely unwatchable. I'm researching now to purchase another brand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Back lighting strips ?? I've only had the TV for 3 years, The manufacturer stamp says September 2014. I bought it December 2014. Now the screen is flashing on and off. When looking for answers, I found that it's the back lighting strips. Very disappointed. Here it is Christmas time 2017 and NO TV. This sucks. Tried the "geeks" where I bought it and they said they can't get parts. I called LG directly and they said yes there's parts, but now I have to pay for a tech. to come and repair.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Value Ever I have owned this unit for several years now, and cannot state just how happy I have been with this TV. Bought this as a replacement to another unit that failed just after the warranty expired. Great features and picture is excellent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A nice , mid range T.V. I have had my TV for about 6 months. I really like it. This is my first smart TV. Still learning how to use everything. Sound is just OK. I hooked my TV up to a sound bar which makes all the difference in the world.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible TV I bought this tv 2 1/2 years ago and some LED lights burnt out, replaced those and bought a new power supply and now I have verical lines on half the screen. I don't think it's worth it to spend any more money to try to fix it, so I will throw it in the garbage and buy a new TV and it won't be an LG.

Im trying to connect a wireless audio transmitter, however I'm lacking the 3.5mm input for my audio. Any ideas of what I can use other than the RCA inputs, b/c they do not work, neither does RS232 mini jack. Maybe a 3.5mm to optical or hdmi? Want BT!

Asked by: Colita
Optical to 3.5 mm jack would be the best option. However, we would not be able to guarantee compatibility or functionality of the adapter with the TV. Nor do we have a recommended brand to use. ^AC
