Wow what a difference

published

Easy set up, easy remote and a fantastic screen.. Netflix and Apple TV are so clear, excellent power consumption. Net integration is simple and it has all the features I wanted. The connection is simple and navigation is easy, update to the OS was very quick and channel setup was painless.
Very happy with the purchase.

Black is not black

published

Really disappointed in this TV. On a dark screen there are several patches of white light regardless of what setting it is on. When the picture is colourful it is spectacular. For a home movie theatre I wouldn't recommend this tv as you aren't getting what you paid for. Sadly LG keep giving me the runaround and all their suggestions don't fix this problem.

Enjoying the TV

published

It's a great TV smart. I've had a little trouble navigating with the laser pointer and it does use batteries quite quickly. We ran it through a smart Eco electricity board, that switches on and off all other peripheral appliances and have had a few issues with the tv going on and off which then turns the sound bar on and off. This also seems to effect the subtitle going off, have rectified that with no help from LG services, by running the tv through a stable power board. Other than that lovely pictures Also if the tv does an upgrade to its computer ,you then have to completely turn the power off so that the upgrades can take place.

Great picture quality for the price

published

Having bought a 65" OLED from LG earlier in the year, we needed a slightly smaller 55" TV & we were so impressed by the LG OLED that we bought this LG LED TV. Now we're wondering why we bought the OLED since this TV picture quality is so close the OLED in our bright rooms! Sound is decent for the room size but won't win any awards. Operating system & remote are easy to use & we prefer them to Android-based ones.

If you are using Bluetooth, then maybe you should run a cable between the modem and the tv. Otherwise cant help

no issue on tv connection mine is connected via cable to modem, so I do not need to use wifi. check firmware etc is updated and you have good signal strength if using wifi

I have the answer to wifi problems on the LG tv. My 55 “ LG was not picking up wifi or if it did was very weak and dropping out or freezing. Also my smart remote was unresponsive at times
I got this from the LG community US and it works.
Unplug the power, remove the stand and remove the back off the TV. You will see the ribbon wires that go to the wifi module are taped with yellow tape and folded over. Cut this tape carefully and flatten out the folded wires as best you can, taking out the crease in the wires. Fit the cover back on and your wifi should work again. This worked for me and apparently many others.

55, 65 and 75" all include the alpha 7 processor, running at 200 MHz, if this is what you mean by size.
