What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sort of sad I see others having the same problem with this LG model that is scarcely three years old - no picture but everything else seems fine. Clearly this is a quality issue within LG and the company making this product. I will be contacting an authorized repair agent in the morning, but dependent on cost it may end up tossed in the trash. I'm feeling like LG is not interested in quality and there is no way I'll dump money into a shoddy product. Definitely will not buy LG again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good TV but bad support TV was manufactured in 2014 (according to sticker inside). Power board has blown - ok, these things can happen... but LG no longer produces or stocks spare parts for a TV only 3 years old! Most likely I will have to throw away the TV for the sake of a cheap part which is on longer available.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from LG TV made in Mexico.... I purchased this 60" TV 15 months ago... grey screen.then and now red screen with faint images. DONT BUY LG products... #1. Product quality is below average #2. LG will not stand behind their product..,they know it's garbage. #3 product concerns goes through third party vendor in Philippines. Just an answering service for LG...they are not vested or concerned with your grievance as they are not related to LG. #4 why wast your money on a product or business that is not reliable... spend a few bucks more and buy something other than LG.

My tv has power but won't turn on, it acts like it's going to turn on but within 10 seconds it turns back off....it's not that old....

Asked by: Manders
We regret to read that your LG 60” Class Full HD 1080p Plasma TV (59.8” diagonally), Model # 60PB5600 is having power issues and will not turn on. Power problems can be caused by component failure within the unit, power surges or wiring problems in your home and might require service or replacing parts inside the TV. However, before you call for service, you may want to try to power cycle the TV by unplugging the TV from the outlet and leave it unplugged for a short while. Then press and hold the power button on the TV for 10 seconds, then let go and see if the TV will power on. Before you try this, check to make sure that the power cord in firmly pushed into the socket in the back of the TV. A loose cord could be the cause. Try a different outlet to see if that resolves the issue. If your TV still isn’t working then it has an issue that needs to be repaired...^IFV

Hey, need help connecting a desktop pc to this tv.. Don't know whether i should check all inputs (tried that) along with hdmi switcher or vga-hdmi adapter /cable..can't seem to understand difference between vga-hdmi or hdmi-vga when both have both ends

Asked by: inessantos
The easiest way to connect a Desktop PC to the LG 60” Class Full HD 1080p Plasma TV (59.8” diagonally), Model # 60PB5600 would be connecting from the HDMI output on your Desktop PC to any HDMI input port on the TV. However, if your PC doesn't have an HDMI output on it then you will need the proper cable and a converter to convert the signal. VGA is an analog signal and HDMI is digital so simply using a VGA-HDMI or HDMI-VGA will not work. You will need to ask the Sales Associates to explain the differences between the cables you are looking to purchase...^IFV

Asked by: tersum
Hello Tersum. The Optical Digital Cable, also known as a Toslink cable does not have a part number to it. IT is just referred to by either of the 2 above mentioned names. The cable has a protective cap on the plug that you need to pull off and when you push it into it's port, you should hear or feel a click that lets you know that it is securely inserted, Digital cables will not work on an RCA port. Optical Digital cables use infrared light to send a digital signal of "1's" and "0's". RCA cables are analog and send electrical signals...^IFV
