    LG Recalls Multiple Smart TV Models Over Safety Concerns In Australia

    LG Smart TVs are being recalled due to safety concerns. More than a dozen models sold between 2016 and 2019 were affected.

    Over a dozen models of LG Smart TVs sold in Australia have been recalled due to safety concerns. The recall covers select 65″ and 77″ models manufactured between February 2016 and September 2019, sold by Harvey Norman, The Good Guys, JB Hi-Fi, Bing Lee, Betta and NARTA. The affected models contain faulty x-capacitors in the power board, which can fail unsafely and potentially cause a flame at the back of the TV, posing a risk of serious injury, electric shock, smoke inhalation or fire.

    Customers who have purchased an affected model are advised to contact LG Electronics Australia, where a technician will either replace the power board free of charge or arrange a replacement TV. A recall notice also cautions users not to use any liquid to extinguish flames or smoke emitted from the TV, as this poses the risk of electric shock and serious injury and instead instructs them to immediately leave the vicinity of the TV and turn the main power to the property off.
