Could it be that LED loses it's initial brightness more rapidly ?(I read that somewhere)

Maybe you need to increase the backlight level every year or so

I haven't noticed any dulling of the brightness. I've had my 42 LE5400 since July of 2010.

My local electronics retailer has an open box 47LE5400 for $665.00. Any opinions on such a deal? It wasn't on display two weeks ago so I'm not certain where they've had it all this time or how long it's been on.
post #1476 of 1508
Bobcrane you can find out how many hours the TV has been in use by pressing the menu button followed by the Red button on the remote and then select Product/Service info. It will display Used Time in hours.

Has anyone compared the settings with the LV5400 and the LV5500.

I have purchased an LV5400 and would like to set it up and wonder which settings in the EZ Menu as well as any other settings would be good to change for the best performance.

Thanx to anyone with some knowledge to share.

Hi, this is the LE5400 thread, so you might want to check out this LVXXXX thread instead. http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1322953

Also, the LV5400/5500 are basically the same sans the magic remote. I've read good things about this calibration for the two, assuming it is an IPS panel. http://forums.cnet.com/7723-19410_102-546767.html?

post #1480 of 1508
Hi All,

I've had the 55LE5400 for about a year now and recently started having an issue. When watching YouTube videos the TV reboots. LG replaced the main board a week ago and the issue still happens. Anyone facing the same issue and any ideas what it could be?

-Thanks

Nope, this model does not support NetFlix from Canada. But I believe the newer models from LG can.

If you have a home network, you can get a relatively inexpensive media server type box -- most of these support NetFlix.

I have the same issue.

Hi all, in two weeks my TV will be 1 year old, I’m having a strange issue with my TV. Last month LG sent a tech out and replace the panel, then about a week later the same lines slowly started coming back now its worst again. (See attached Pics). Two inches of random lines on left side of screen.
It seem good once they put the panel in but they can’t stay all day at your home when they have other appointments, therefore I did not notice the changes till a week or two later.
I have 6 HDMI cables and I’ve tried them all from mid-price to high price to rule out HDMI cable issues. They work fine on the Vizio TV.
But here is something strange, not saying this is the cause or a cable box can cause damage but I have subscribed to optimum/cablevision and they’ve hooked up a Samsung SMT-C5320 DVR box. After a month all seem fine till one day while watching TelemundoHD the lines came crashing in. After having panel replaced last month here I go again and same channel majority of the time, but maybe just a coincidence.
I called LG and someone from the same repair shop will contact me Tuesday (1-3-11). My question is has anyone experienced this, also is there a specific internal componet the tech should concentrate on besides the panel. Maybe HDMI board? IDK.
Thank You.

Hi,

Have you been able to find out what the problem is and how to resolve it? The local repair company that took my TV in to diagnose the problem said they could not recreate it.

I haven't had this issues recently. I did contact LG earlier this month regarding this and their response was:

Problem Solved. After replacing panel and same issue it turned out to be the mainboard (board with all inputs) not Power board nor panel.

My 47LE5400 is out of warranty and suddenly it stuck at the welcome screen. My local technician (not LG authorized) find the mainboard and power supply board are dead and need to be replaced. Is it worth $350 fixing, considered I paid $700 for the LED ?

Thanks

I would say yes if you really enjoyed the TV and the technician is willing to stand behind his work. What kind of 47' TV would you be able to buy (used) for $350?

I would say no. I can't trust it at this point. I'd buy a new tv.

I literally yesterday night encountered the same stuck screen problem. Left home with it working at 4PM, got back at 11PM and stuck at the logo screen. Mine is also 14 months old, 2 months out of warranty.

I haven't contacted anyone yet but there is an LG authorized service place right nearby that I'm going to call today and likely take it there tomorrow...

Any progress on this?

Man I regret not extending my warranty... stupid, stupid amateur move
post #1491 of 1508
Mine is over a year old and still no issues whatsoever

Just reporting the status of my TV

Still love the picture quality
post #1492 of 1508
Never had a surround setup before, so I just noticed something interesting. Thumb drive plugged into the USB port does indeed send 5.1 to my receiver through the optical output. And my HDTV antenna also sends 5.1 through the optical output. So it appears that only the cable box/HDMI input requires going into the service menu to enable 5.1 optical output. Weird.

And to echo king mark, no issues here, either, and still love the picture quality, too.

Glad to be here folks. I have owned the le5400 in the past but this is for my two friends.I was hoping one of you experts here could tell me if and where in this thread,would contain the specifications,codecs,and proper bitrates that this tv accepts through USB. We have been having a problem with movies and about 50% are unsupported. The files that have the most problems are mkv, our favorite,and a few avi as well. When I had this tv myself,I quickly realized it is much pickier than my samsung, in regards to accepting various types of files, or I should say codec/bitrates actually. I'm sure someone has this all figured out, but was hoping you could point me to where in this thread if so?



Also,because I do not own this anymore, I haven't kept up with this TV's firmware, and was wondering if there was a recent firmware release that might possibly address its codec/bitrate compatibility issues,and if so,where do I find out more?



Thank you for your time and consideration,and I am extremely grateful there is a thread dedicated to this wonderful machine.

I can say the following for certain:

no DTS audio
Dolby Digital audio on mkv files: 448K does NOT play
MKV video: if header compression is turned on, you may get an "unsupported" message, or pixelization. Either that, or the number of reference frames is too high. I forget which...sorry.


I do not think any firmware updates have addressed the 448K audio bitrate issue.

I even put my hand over the remote sensor and the volume kept increasing and the TV on/off light kept flashing as if it was receiving a ir signal.


The same issue was also happening changing channels and trying to navigate the menu too.


I done a rest of the TV, which did not fix the issue. Then after about 20 minutes the issue went away.


Has anyone else witnesses this? And ideas what is going on?


Did you ever find a resolution to this unresponsive remote issue from a year ago April? I started experiencing the same thing in the past week. TV will turn on but then no response or too many responses to remote inputs. Phantom volume increases, or Menu appears on screen.

Before anyone else comments, YES, I changed the remote batteries. And YES, I tried other remotes. Same issue. And YES, the TV is well out of warranty.

Unplugging the TV for a bit usually corrects it for a time, but then the issue will resurface after another off then on scenario.

Thanks for any feedback or suggestions.

Has anybody been successful in getting 5.1 Surround Sound from netflix on the xxLE5400?
post #1497 of 1508
My dad has a 47LE5400 that has also developed the unresponsive issue. No remote works (either the original or a universal). Even the buttons on the TV itself don't work. The only way to solve it is to unplug the TV from the wall and plug it back in. Even then, it only becomes responsive some of the times. He's tried updating to the latest firmware and has disabled SIMPLINK. Has anyone successfully solved this problem?

This was wrong the first time I ran it and still wrong after I rolled the monitor back to the factory settings and updated the firmware. I also cleared the registry in accordance with the instructions on the EDID override thread in the HTPC forum. It's causing problems (handshake?) with my HTPC that just cannot be resolved so far. Also, if anyone has this model, could you post correct EDID info (need 256 bit...this seems to only be 128 bit) so I can try and work on an override?

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.
post #1499 of 1508
Bumping the thread to see if anyone can capture the 256 bit "[Real time ...]" EDID for an LG LE5400, any size, with Moninfo. If so, please post the results in the forum. The easy to follow capture instructions are here: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1227161/edid-overrides-to-solve-bitstreaming-issues-for-ati-5xxxs.

I've captured my EDID, but the info is corrupted. PLEASE HELP!!
