LG's prominent UltraFine 27-inch 5K display can now be fixed according to the electronics company. The glitches that occurred whenever the monitor is placed near a router will now be manageable.

It was reported recently that LG's 5K display was having some issues when placed close to a router.  The monitor flutters and stops which cause MacBooks to behave the same way and needs to be restarted. The affected monitor was manufactured in partnership with Apple, as reported by MacRumors.

The problems exist only on the company's 5K monitors approved by Apple.  However, the same models that are manufactured after February will no longer experience the same issues. An LG representative confirmed that the company will work out the problem by implanting extra covering to the newly-produced monitors. The added protection will safeguard the display against the router's electromagnetic radiation that probably caused the problem.

LG revealed that present models will be reconstructed with the same improved shielding. This will enable monitors to be positioned near routers without encountering any more issues. Owners of the affected unit can get hold of Apple, LG, or even their reseller for a repair schedule.

LG apologizes for this inconvenience and is committed to delivering the best quality products possible so all LG UltraFine 27-inch 5K displays manufactured after February 2017 will be fitted with enhanced shielding," as per the company's email.

According to 9to5Mac, LG UltraFine 27-inch 5K display presently sells with a 25 percent discount on Apple's website. This is a part of the company's scheme of selling USB-C to assist Mac users to switch to the new standards. The great sale of 5K monitor is good until March 31, 2017. 

LG has promised to fix the issues of the previous units and has started enhancing the newly manufactured models. Owners who have problems with their LG 5K monitors should keep in touch with the manufacturer for the reconstruction of their unit.
