LG 70 inch LED TV blur/motion issue

by crushlikeaboss / October 16, 2014 10:21 PM PDT

Complete newbie and non technical guy here. Just bought the LG 7100 70 inch LED TV after having a rear projection TV for the last 11 years. Having problems with blurriness when watching football, specifically the grass. Picture is perfect and crsip before the play starts, but as soon as the ball is snapped, the grass blurs, almost like the TV/pizels can't follow the action if that makes sense. Geek squad was zero help. I have the X1 box from Xfinity hooked up through an HDMI cable. Have turned off trumotion and played with settings but nothing seems to work. Is this normal with LED TV's and will I see this with all brands of 70- inch TV's? Is it a settings or cable signal issue? Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated - not sure if I should return it for the Sony Bravia or if I will have the same exact issue. Thanks!

This is a function of the refresh rate

If your TV has a refresh rate of 120 Hz or higher, that shouldn't happen. If it's 60, as a lot of TVs are, this can happen. I went to LG's web site and found the specs for this TV at
http://www.lg.com/us/tvs/lg-70LB7100-led-tv but there was no mention of refresh rate, so I expect you have a 60 Hz refresh rate.

Good luck.

The LG 7100 TV is 240 Hz

Thanks for the reply. Does 240 HZ mean I should not be having this problem? I specifically bought this model to prevent this type of issue since I watch a lot of sports. Not sure if it is an issue with the TV or a settings issue. Thanks again.

Actually it means it could be a problem

I've seen motion blur for a few reasons.

1. The motion smoothing tends to do this. For that reason I turn it off.
2. The source is blurred. To test this out I turn off ALL MOTION PROCESSING and test on another display.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
