Reboot issue Fixed with fan

David B., Newegg
24 June 2014
  • Summary: I have a different model than this one here but the had the same restarting loop happening. After the fan installed it stopped. Been at least 7 months now-- no problem.
  • Pros: Fairly nice picture
  • Cons: Reboots from chip inside not having enough ventilation. I installed a USB powered fan over the chip which on my model as right inside the cabinet and above the RCA jacks. Drilled a pattern of small holes to vent the fan air pulling the heat outward. TV hasn't rebooted since.

Worked Great, for 6 months

Roger N., Newegg
12 March 2014
  • Summary: The product is nice, must have a faulty power supply or even programming error.
  • Pros: Crisp Clear picture. Apps: Netflix app, on this TV, is one of the best apps for netflix I have ever had on any device. Instant load, never an issue.
  • Cons: After about the 3rd/4th update, my TV now does this thing where it decides to continually reboot. I turn on the tv, start watching something (if i get this far) and then it shuts down, turns on, shuts down, turns on....Repeatedly for approx. 3-5 minutes. Sometimes it recovers, sometimes it doesnt...

Decent Features, but Double Fail

Cody Steele, Amazon
28 February 2014
  • Summary: We purchased two of these . The first arrived in good condition and the very minor scratches on it which made it a discounted item were worth the $120 savings from Amazon's Warehouse Deals. We set it up, but a few days later it started to turn off on its own and would turn right back on.

Great Picture, but Reboots Itself in a Loop

Sarah W., Newegg
17 January 2014
  • Summary: I'm going to request an RMA and hope that the next one will stay on for more that 20 seconds at a time.
  • Pros: The picture is great, sound is more than adequate for an average size living room, the Smart screens are intuitive.
  • Cons: After less than two months, the TV started rebooting in a loop and is unusable. I have run the firmware updates when available, power cycled it, and I keep it on a UPS for power conditioning. I hope this is just a dud, but one search on Google for "LG TV reboots" shows that this is a common issue...

Decent TV

dhyard, Amazon
23 November 2013
  • Summary: Very nice color, excellent skin tones, the blacks are not very good though. The main problem is motion blur, when watching sports, a lot of the action is blurred and pixelated. Definitly not a 120 hz tv, as I have a couple Samsungs with 120hz and there is no motion blur.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION I MISSED....

TMI "tmi_darktower", Amazon
30 October 2013
  • Summary: I own a Roku and have Direct TV. I purchased this LG Smart TV to watch videos from the internet. I thought I could browse the web and watch whatever I wanted as long as I had the correct subscriptions (HBO Go, etc). I missed a very important piece of information.

Many Complaints of Defective TVs

Karen Long, Amazon
14 September 2013
  • Summary: After a month or so, this TV began randomly shutting off and turning back on. After conducting a web search, I was surprised to see how common this issue is with LG TVs. I am now in the process of dealing with customer service on getting it repaired.
