So I recently purchased a 32LG70, and I cannot for the life of me seem to get HDMI, or any connection other than VGA working properly. On VGA at 1080p everything is crisp, clear, and vibrant. On HDMI (or anything else) the picture at 1080p is muddled. It is blurry and oversaturated (not just more vibrant, but parts of the image look too saturated and wrong).


I have every input calibrated the same for testing purposes and I'm using my PC on VGA and HDMI. I took a screenshot of my desktop and borrowed my friend's HDMI Xbox. The screenshot on the Xbox suffered the same symptoms as HDMI on my PC. Hooking the Xbox up via component and looking at the screenshot it doesn't seem oversaturated but everything is even blurrier.


Anyone know what could be going on? Is my TV bunk or could the whole 70 series just be a bad choice?

No reply in about two days, I figured I could bump this. Does anyone have any ideas about this at all? I'm open to any suggestions or any insights whatsoever.


If I can't figure this problem out, I'm probably going to return it and get a 1080p Sharp. It's the only other 1080p 32" at the store I got it from that has composite audio out.


EDIT: With the following post, my suspicions are confirmed. This TV is a hunk of junk and can't actually display anything but VGA at 1080p properly. I'm returning it.

I just posted it on another thread that is very similar to your issue.


LG had to buy a lot of panels from Sharp (in the 32" size for sure, not sure about 37" but anyway). So some are getting the LG Made TV's with LG panels and some are getting the ones made with Sharp's panels.


I believe the LG/LG ones are not having any HDMI issues picture looking great (except maybe the common PS3~HDMI parties). The LG/Sharp Tv's look very good on 1080P component but blurry and washed out on HDMI 1080P.....
