Picture Quality Adjustment

If you notice blockiness, pixelation, or graininess in your TV’s picture, try these tips to improve quality:

1. Check Connection & Content

Ensure cables are securely connected and no loose connections exist. Check for weak wifi signals if streaming.

Low-quality video streams or images displayed on a high-resolution TV can look poor. Consider upgrading content sources.

2. Perform an A/V Reset

Resetting audio/video settings may help if picture still seems off:

On Magic/General Remote

  1. Press Mute button 3 times quickly.
  2. Select [AV Reset] when prompted.
  • Steps are for 2022 and 2021 LG TVs with webOS. Other models may vary slightly.
  • Resetting deletes previous picture adjustments. Settings will need to be re-configured.
