Greetings! I am Amelia Griffiths, a tech head and a content writer who loves to write about household gadgets. I remember my brother’s awe-struck face when we switched from our old LG TV to a new smart LG TV back when the first model was released. We now use one of the latest versions, and I am quite well-versed in the technical aspects of it. This blog (LG TV Guru) is my space to share and talk about different settings and unique features of LG TV. The how-to guides, with their easy-to-follow steps, will guide you through the process. I have also included the troubleshooting methods I have done and the techniques I know will help you get the complete television experience.
