What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from very very flimsy tv I got the TV 1 1/2 years back, The Quality of sound and vision is extraordinary. But it too flimsy, My son through a empty light bottle from a 1 feet and it cracked.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great TV for the price I love the overall look of the tv. It has a nice thin border and sleek screen. The picture is great, although it is my first 4k tv, so i dont have much experience to really compare it to anything else. Sound is good, gets plenty loud. My only con would be its been a little difficult to get the picture settings just right for when im playing rdr2 on ps4, its a little too dark and hard to see. It can also get pretty hot after long usage and heats my room..

Will this tv play a video file saved as a .ISO image?

Asked by: george60
Hi George60. You cannot watch ISO videos directly on the LG SUPER UHD 4K HDR Smart LED TV - 55" Class (54.6" Diag), Model # 55SJ8500 or any of our TVs via USB. To watch them on our TVs, you would need to first convert ISO files to a format that is fully compatible with our TVs...^IFV

How can I display content resolution information while using the Netflix app? For example, when using an HDMI input I can click the wheel mouse on the remote and an information box displays in the upper left corner. How can I see same info for Netflix?

Asked by: NewLGUser
The only way to see the resolution of what you are watching on Netflix would be prior to starting the content (HD, 4K, HDR, Dolby Vision, etc. would display on in the title information). There isn’t any way to get the resolution information once the content starts playing. ^AC

What size wall mount screws does it take?   M8x45 for example 

Asked by: Scott12346
The screws that will fit into the bolt holes in the back of the 65SJ8500 have a metric measurement which is given as M(?) x L(?) where "M" is the width of the screw and "L" is the length. The length will vary depending on the depth of the wall mount you're using. Typically, if the wall mount you're using is a VESA Compliant Wall Mount that supports the same A x B VESA Wall Mount Pattern for the TV, which is 300 x 300 (mm) for this TV, it should have come with the correct VESA Standard screws that would fit into the TV. The width of the screws that will fit into this TV is M6 (i.e. 6 mm). You can measure the length of the screws you currently have to determine what length you will need or you can check the instruction manual for your wall mount for that. Most hardware stores will carry these screws. ^CP

Can I use a Sonos sound system with this tv?

Asked by: Sabatier
HI Sabatier. Unfortunately, without knowledge of which SONOS sound system you are inquiring about, we cannot specifically say how you would connect it to the LG SUPER UHD 4K HDR Smart LED TV - 55" Class (54.6" Diag), Model # 55SJ8500. However, the Sonos wireless sound system works by connecting one single speaker to your home network, then adding more Sonos units (up to a maximum of 32, dotted around the house) into the mix using a dedicated secure wireless mesh network known as Sonosnet. The SONOS Sound System comprises a number of devices such as Sonos Play:1, SONOS Play:3, Sonos Play:5, Sonos Playbar, Sonos Playbase and the Sonos Sub, all of which are designed to work with a variety of products from various manufacturers. We recommend that you contact SONOS for any inquiries about connecting it to your home network so that it can work in conjunction with the 55SJ8500...^IFV

Does this model support Dolby Atmos? Will it be available in a software update?

Asked by: Vickt
The LG SUPER UHD 4K HDR Smart LED TV - 65" Class (64.5" Diag), Model # 5SJ8500 does not have a built-in Dolby Atmos Decoder and it does not support Dolby Atmos. Regrettably, it cannot be upgraded to support Dolby Atmos through a firmware upgrade...^IFV
