Resolving the Major Issues with LG TVs: A Comprehensive Guide
LG has gained a reputation for producing high-quality televisions that combine cutting-edge technology with sleek designs. However, like any other electronic device, LG TVs can experience issues that may affect their performance and user experience. In this article, we will explore some of the most common problems encountered with LG TVs and provide practical solutions to address them effectively.
1. Poor Picture Quality:
One of the most frustrating issues faced by LG TV owners is poor picture quality. To enhance your viewing experience, consider the following steps:
Adjust picture settings: LG TVs offer various pre-set picture modes like Standard, Cinema, or Sports. Experiment with these modes to find one that suits your preferences. Additionally, fine-tune settings such as brightness, contrast, color temperature, and backlight intensity to optimize picture quality for your viewing environment. Update firmware: Regularly check for firmware updates on LG's official website or through the TV's settings menu. Firmware updates often include performance improvements and bug fixes that can enhance picture quality. Check input source: Sometimes, the picture quality issue may be due to a poor quality input signal. Ensure that your cable, satellite, or streaming device is connected securely and functioning properly. Consider using high-quality HDMI cables for optimal performance. 2. Sound Issues:
Sound problems can detract from the immersive experience that LG TVs aim to provide. To tackle sound-related issues, try the following:
Adjust audio settings: LG TVs offer various sound modes, including Standard, Cinema, Music, and Sports. Experiment with these modes to find the one that suits your audio preferences. Additionally, adjust settings like bass, treble, balance, and surround sound to optimize your audio experience. External speakers or soundbar: If you are dissatisfied with the built-in speakers' performance, consider connecting external speakers or a soundbar to your LG TV. This can significantly enhance the audio quality and immersion. Check audio output settings: Ensure that the TV's audio output settings are correctly configured. Verify that the correct audio output, such as HDMI ARC, optical, or Bluetooth, is selected based on your audio setup. 3. Connectivity and Network Issues:
LG TVs rely heavily on connectivity features for streaming content and accessing smart features. If you encounter connectivity or network problems, try the following solutions:
Network troubleshooting: Make sure your TV is connected to a stable Wi-Fi network. Restart your router, update its firmware, or try connecting your TV using an Ethernet cable for a more stable connection. Software updates: Keep your TV's firmware and applications up to date. Regularly check for system updates in the TV's settings menu. These updates often include bug fixes and improvements that can resolve connectivity issues. Factory reset: If all else fails, performing a factory reset can help resolve persistent network issues. However, be aware that this will reset all settings and erase stored data, so make sure to back up important information beforehand. Conclusion:
While LG TVs are known for their exceptional quality, they can experience certain issues that may impact their performance. By following the solutions provided above, you can troubleshoot and resolve some of the most common issues with LG TVs, including poor picture quality, sound problems, and connectivity/network issues. Remember to consult the TV's user manual or LG's support website for specific instructions tailored to your model. With these steps, you can optimize your LG TV experience and enjoy uninterrupted entertainment.

LG has been recognized for its leadership and continuing dominance of the OLED TV market. Celebrating a decade of excellence and customer experience innovation this year, LG OLED remains the top choice in the premium TV segment through its unmatched contrast which enables perfect blacks and true-to-life colors, as well as its unprecedented flexibility and thinness.
According to market research firm Omdia, LG topped the OLED TV market by a landslide in the first quarter of 2023, claiming approximately 60 percent of the market by total shipments.
LG OLED TVs are currently sold in over 130 countries, making them the most widely available OLED TVs in the world. Last year, the accumulated total shipments of LG OLED TVs (since their initial launch in 2013) exceeded 15 million units; making LG the first OLED TV maker to reach this impressive milestone.
Additionally, LG accounted for more than 70 percent of the market for ultra-large OLED TVs – 70 inches and above – in the first quarter. The company is reinforcing its strong position in the ultra-large premium TV segment with industry-leading solutions such as the 97-inch LG SIGNATURE OLED M (model M3), which is the world’s first consumer TV with a wireless solution capable of real-time video and audio transmission at up to 4K 120Hz.
LG’s combined shipments of OLED TVs and LCD TVs in the first quarter were about 5.5 million units, with OLED TVs making up 738,000 of that number. Further, LG owned a 17.1 percent share of the global TV market as of first quarter 2023, by revenue.1
The company’s share of the global TV market has dipped slightly this quarter compared to the same period in 2022. This is mainly due to waning global demand and LG’s increased focus on stock risk management. However, LG OLED TV sales have remained strong, representing more than 30 percent of the company’s total TV sales in the first quarter of 2023.
Meanwhile, total global TV shipments in the first quarter reached 46.52 million units, the lowest figure recorded since the same period in 2009. However, Omdia expects a recovery in the second half of 2023 and predicts shipments to reach 205.51 million units by year-end, a slight increase from last year.
The OLED TV segment is expected to enjoy an upswing as well. Omdia projects that OLED TVs will take 46.1 percent of the premium TV market (USD 1,500 and above) by revenue1 at the end of the year; up 10 percent from 2022 (36.7 percent market share). The rapid rise of OLED TVs is expected to accelerate as a result of more brands having entered the segment in recent years.2
LG offers an increasingly diverse lineup of OLED TVs, with various screen sizes – from 42 to 97 inches – 8K and 4K options, and distinctive designs to choose from. Boasting an array of convenient and image-enhancing features, the company’s OLED TVs deliver unique customer experiences and next-level viewing immersion.
LG’s premium OLED TV lineup also includes the LG OLED evo series, which offers brighter, more lifelike images and LG Lifestyle Screens, which couple stunning picture quality with distinctive designs that add a touch of refinement to any living space. This year, the company will be expanding availability of the LG OLED Objet Collection Posé – a member of the Lifestyle Screen family – to a total of 40 countries worldwide.
LG OLED has been honored at the annually held CES Innovation Awards for 11 consecutive years3 and has received wide praise from major publications, including several “Best TV of the Year” titles and countless claims of being “the best TV I’ve ever reviewed,” “a true Marvel” and “the king of TVs.”
LG has been working tirelessly for the past decade to realize the immense potential of OLED. Building on what it has achieved so far, the company will continue to create and innovate over the next decade, exploring more of the near limitless possibilities presented by its self-lit technology to deliver ever-greater customer value.
