    Same here! 2016 LG 50UH5500... Just happened 2018- 06-06.  Called LG since purchased 1 1/2 years ago just when you did.   Seems to be a BIG problem if 3 of us have the same issue within the same month!!!!! I am waiting to hear from LG by email to see what they can do about it.  Of course, one year warranty gone with no extended.  Still 1 1/2 years is a lousy TV as you said.  I'll keep you posted when or if the issue can be resolved.  Please do the same.  Thanks

    I had the same thing happen to my 65UH5500 on 6/25/18. I bought mine in October of 2016 so I’m very disappointed to not get 2 years out of it. Hopefully LG acknowledges the issue and is able to repair the TV. I have really enjoyed it to this point but will n vet by LG again if it had to be replaced.

    Hello, have any of you all gotten the issue fixed? I have the same TV, purchased on September of 2016 and it is doing the same thing.

    Same problem here bought tv Nov 2016 in may of 2018 would not power on took to shop they replaced some of the back lights and the main board little over 300.00  worked great till last night same problem as before. Sent e mail to LG waiting for response. Really like lg brand but if i ever buy again depends on customer service spend 650.00 for a tv think it would last a few years. I have a big screen tv from the 1980 s  and it still works but a new tv good for 18 months

    The fix is having about $600 worth of repairs with a 90 day warranty! A new tv has a 1 yr warranty, but I’ll never buy another LG in my life!

    Same here with my 50UH5500. Had it exactly 2 yrs. It's only covered for one. Now I know why. I've had several flat screen TV's do the same thing but only after 5 yrs or more. I had one repair shop tell me 300 + parts and another 100 + parts. I work for HP Inc. and can see that's it's a very simple circuit board replacement. the board itself costs about 100.00 from my research. 100/per hour is very reasonable 300/per is not! Be sure to shop around if you decide to repair.I have a Changhong 45 in that's lasted for 3 yrs. with no issues. I won't be buying LG again!

    Same here my 65uh5500 just went out. If i unplug it and plug it back in the logo will flash for just a second and the red standby light will come on then flash 2 or three times. Mine  was manufactured in june 2016 and purchased in october 2016 not even a full two years. Im begining to wonder if its an update issue.

    Mine just crapped out too.  Flashes red light then LG flashes on the screen then black screen.  Bought December 2016.  LG doesn’t appear to want to do ANYTHING to help out.  Very expensive tv for not even lasting two years.

    Same issue this week with a 60uh6035, purchased in early 2017.  What a piece of crap!  I have a Panasonic Plasma TV that is more than 10 years old that still works & looks great. I should have purchased a Samsung instead.

    Same problem. Called LG and they said I have to contact a repair shop. No recalls or issues on this unit that they are aware of. Disappointed because we bought in Feb 2017 😔

    I have the same problem with my 65UH5500 I would say the way it looks to me LG is having a major issue with these tv’s by the number of people starting to report it. Seems to me maybe LG is trying to sweep it under the rug

    I have a 65UH5500 65inch TV also. I turned in on this morning and only get the red light flashing 3 times and no picture. It is barely 2 years old and there is no warranty.  What a piece of junk, I will never buy another LG product.

    LG what is being done about these issues you can not hide much longer. There are to many people complaining about the same issues. Maybe it’s time to start posting on all social media what kind of junk LG is building. Or contact the Attorney General Of your state in which you live in
