What people are saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poor quality After a lot of research I decided on this LG.Big mistake! I've had to return 2 of them because anytime there was a black screen it would have three vertical bars of different shades of gray.After speaking to an LG representative the solution was to have a repair person come and take my few month old TV apart so I decided to live with the bars.But now I have blue and white horizontal lines all the way down the side the TV.This is obviously a defective model line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tv I purchased this TV in November 2017 it’s now January 2019 I’d like to say I have 0 issues with the TV. I have the 65” model 65sj8500 I use it daily for a minimum of 10 hours I have had no screen burn from games or tv and it has totally improved the image quality of our Blu-ray movies without buying 4-K blue ray . The image is clear and smooth and using the settings to customize viewing picture and preferences is fairly simple game mode straight out of the box on this tv was very good for the Xbox one X I run games on 4K and haven’t noticed any issues with refresh ratings or input lag from the tv. If there is anything I would recommend it would be to get high quality 4K hdmi cables don’t skimp on those they will impact image quality and a sound bar if you want to hear the base in movies with a tv that looks this great the sound should be there too.

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

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

Bose wave music system linked with SJ8500 but sound has 0.5sec sync gap. How can it be solved? 

Asked by: Ryan8319
Please try the below: Home > Settings > All Settings > Sound > AV Sync Adjustment Adjusts the synchronization of the sound from the speaker that is working. Moving closer to – speeds up the audio output, while moving closer to + slows down the audio output compared to video. If you select Bypass, Outputs the broadcast signals or the sound from external devices without any audio delay. The audio may be output before the video because of the time the TV takes to process the video input. ^AC

You specs say this TV is 110-220 voltage. I recently had to return my set, the label at the rear of tv said 120v only....... what is correct voltage rating??

Asked by: Sulsta001
Amber, Many thanks for your answer.....however, this still doesn't help if you are researching and LG US website says 100-240v. Surely this should have a (120v for US Market)?
