There is an opening between the panel and case.

How to fix

It is normal there is certain opening between the panel and cabinet of LCD TV.  ( ※Standard for opening : 0.5 ~ 1.5mm )

※ When it comes to IPS panel

It is easy to get viewing angle as it has good features of light dispersion, but when it is pressed, image may look spread. Therefore there should be an opening to prevent this.

With this measure, the panel becomes more shock-resistant against the direct force toward the front side.

S-IPS panel provides high quality picture quality from any side of the living room with its wide viewing angle.

There are two types of panels for LCD TV: S-IPS and VA.
S-IPS panel, the improved version of existing IPS panel, is what we, LGE, adopt to use.
LG manufactures and provides most of S-IPS panels distributed in world market with its world class technology.

Generally S-IPS panel is called the counterpart of VA panel, but many experts say that S-IPS panel has wide viewing angle and quick response speed without leaving after image. Also it has good expression ability of brightness and this point results in good power efficiency. 

In addition, S-IPS panel is suitable to delicately express highly vivid colors of digital broadcasting.
This is because S-IPS panel has the lying structure and this allows for the panel to have wide viewing angle.

S-IPS panel’s good point is checked by pressing it with your finger tip.
Panels which S-IPS is not applied to show spread or dragged image, however, LCD TV with LG S-IPS panel has no issues related to spread or dragged image as its panel has good resilience. It ensures you to watch HD digital broadcasting with much more vivid picture quality.
