Questions & Answers
6 ANSWERED QUESTIONS
My LG 42LN5300
television only displays video in black and white. How can I rectify this?
This isn't normal. First, try resetting your picture settings. If that doesn't help, call LG support and get it replaced.
How do I view videos stored on a flash drive? What video format will this TV recognize?
You can't. It doesn't support video playback, even via USB.
Which wall mount bracket should I use for the LG LN5300
Pretty much all wall mounts would work. Just make sure it supports your size and has the articulations that you want for your room.
I just bought this HDTV. I was wondering if it will support 5.1 surround sound.
Depends what you mean by this. There are only two speakers inside the TV, but it does have a digital optical audio output, so you can connect it to a real sound system.
I just bought a 42" LG ln5300
from Target for $379 and a $50 gift card. I will mostly use my TV for PS3, PS4, Netflix, and maybe Basketball/Football. I read everywhere that the Sony w600b
is the best TV for games in this price range. I would like to stay $500 and under. Is this the best, or are there other recommendations could you make?
Yes, the Sony W600B
is indeed the best TV in this price range.
I have this TV and I want to know which HDMI cable would be best for connecting it to a PS4.
All HDMI cables are the same, so just find one that doesn't cost much and use that.
