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..

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

Cleaning screens on a lg smart tv hd

Asked by: Rosebud1165
Much like the screens on monitors and televisions, most of which are LCD, including the LG SUPER UHD 4K HDR Smart LED TV w/ Nano Cell™ Display - 65" Class (64.5" Diag), Model # 65SJ8000, which is an LED LCD screen, the screen has very sensitive anti-glare coatings applied so you need to take care in cleaning it. You will first want to turn the TV off. A dark screen makes it easier to see the areas that are dirty or oily. You will want to use a dry, soft cloth and very gently wipe the screen with a microfiber cloth or dry eraser. If the dry cloth does not completely remove the dirt or oil, do not press harder in an attempt to scrub it off. Pushing directly on the screen can often cause pixels to burn out, especially on laptop displays, desktop monitors, and LCD/LED TV screens. If necessary, dampen the cloth with distilled water or tap water or you can look for special cleaners for flat screens, there are many companies that also sell small spray bottles of special cleaner for flat screens. Avoid using paper towels, toilet paper, tissue paper, or something like your shirt to wipe the screen. These non-ultrasoft materials can scratch the display. Avoid cleaning products that contain ammonia (like Windex®), ethyl alcohol (Everclear® or other strong drinking alcohol), toluene (paint solvents), as well as acetone or ethyl acetate (one or the other is often used in nail polish remover). These chemicals can react with the materials that the flat screen is made of or coated with, which could permanently discolor the screen or cause other kinds of damage. Never spray liquid directly onto the screen. It could leak into the device and cause damage...^IFV
