RE: LG TV Model LM7600 55″ Smart TV purchased 12/2012 (4 & 1/2 Years ago) for over $1499.95 + Tax=$1631.20. Used 12 to 15 hours daily. Never moved from original placement on stand. TV has started blacking out the screen
within seconds of turning it on. Tech support states out of warranty and
call repair as the problem with display needs repair via outside authorized serviceman. Minimum charge would be $250+. WHAT?????
A $1500 tv only lasted 4 years? Checked google for similar problems, and guess what? This is a known problem, hundreds of similar ones reported, with same response from LG.
PLEASE HSN – DO NOT SELL LG PRODUCTS.
PLEASE FOLKS, DO NOT BUY LG PRODUCTS.
What a surprise to check emails this am and happily find so many comments regarding my post.
This is my first time ever expressing on line on hsn any kind of dissatisfaction with a product I purchased from them. I guess I didn’t realize how many people take the time to read and
post. Good for you all! If it doesn’t convince someone to not buy an inferior item, it might at least help them to think.
RE: @lene0716, yes, too many hours, and probably several where no one was actually watching.
Retired couple, he sleeps in front of the tv (off and on), but instantly wakes up if it’s shut off. And,
while it’s not the best thing to do, at least he’s getting some sleep. That’s another issue so I’ll not
Thanks for all the comments. I’ve read them all.
12 to 15 hours a day the TV is on? Holy cow.
thisgoesto & florida…..You sure are right about the junk
Seanchai….Kitchen Aid made good stuff…lol. My pride and joy is our Frigidaire(Made By GM) upright freezer that we bought used in 1972 in Alaska. It still works like new…..
Flat screen TVs aren’t made to last like the old tube TVs. I got 2 1/2 years out of a Vizio, and about 4 years from an LG. Our Samsung still works but it’s only 8 months old.
That’s right thisgoesto11, I had a pretty nice laptop for 4 years. A few months ago it blew too.
I called my brother and said what the heck? And he said…..oh that’s pretty normal time wise for a computer to last. Again……junk. lol… 😉
@bardy, sorry you had bad luck with your LG tv. I think back in 2012 smart Tv’s were rather new and quite expensive like yours for $1,500. One of my large smart tv’s is an LG I purchased about 2 years ago from Best Buy for under $700. So far so good and I love it. I have a Sony Bravia as well and I prefer the LG….. As far as reviews, you will always get good and bad no matter what brand you look up.
Now on the refrigerators, furnaces, etc. of course they have lasted because GE, Kenmore, and other appliances were made in the good old USA. My expensive GE frig blew in less than a year and microwave 2. Junk from China. Hold on to those wonderful made in the USA appliances for as long as you can! 🙂 🙂
I had a LG TV in one of the guest rooms and it died after only a couple of years too. No picture, black screen, but the sound worked. The same thing happened to my parents. I also had terrible luck with LG phones. I have had no problems with Samsung!
I agree completely, Velvet @velveteenrabbit7 – I’ve had outstanding luck with Samsung: TVs, phones, speakers, appliances – all of it. In fact, I bought my ‘first ever’ mobile phone in 1998 (a Samsung) and used it until 2003 when my husband finally convinced me to upgrade. LOL. But it was still working! 😁
As far as LG goes…I don’t have a lot of experience with them, but what I do have is bad. Hubby was stationed in Korea in 1999-2000. (Birthplace of LG.) EVERYTHING, and I do mean everything – from cars to toilets – over there was LG at the time. This was before they broke into the American market, and even in Korea they were a much cheaper option for electronics than big brother Sony. During his time in country he went through 2 LG televisions, an LG microwave, and several CD players. Even a VCR – if anybody remembers those! LOL. That one made him the angriest as it ate his copy of Tombstone that I’d sent him. *chuckle* After he’d come back home and they began selling LG products here I thought he’d blow a gasket. He couldn’t believe that the government would allow them to import and sell such trash here. Needless to say, there is a strict “no LG” policy in our house. 😉
I had hoped that their quality had improved over the years – I know that a lot of people buy their stuff – but maybe not!
Sounds like you have had amazing luck with a lot of your things. Now I understand why you are upset with the TV….
That IS a lot of hours….
I just replaced a furnace that was 40 years old.
I just replaced a hot water heater purchased in 1999.
My kitchen appliances, dishwasher, refrigerator and stove all
were installed about 1993 and are still working.
Don’t know for certain how old our last tv ( a console model) was,
but I’m sure it was many, many more than 4 1/2 years, and was only replaced
because we wanted a larger, flat screen.
Google problems with the LG TV and you’ll find many people
who have the same issue and owned them for shorter periods.
It appears to be a design flaw and I feel there should be some remedy.
Anyway, glad you’re happy and hope you remain that way. Thanks for
taking the time to write.
I am having a hard time understanding what your complaint is about. I did a little math and using just 12 hours a day of use, you got 19, 710 hours of trouble free TV. I think that is pretty good. I have many LG products in my home and have been VERY happy with their performance. I hope you have good luck with your next TV.
