If you pull up the TV info bar where it says 60hz normally, find a video that Plex says is 24p and play it, then pull up the TV info bar and it should say 24hz. Works for me anyway.

Sorry, I should specify that's me watching the video through Plex on my Mac Mini, not via the TV player. I've never tried that, my backup player is my LG HTIB which does a pretty decent job of playing videos too.

AMP, it's like MSG for your TV!

I have had a quick look through this forum and did a search and all I could find were some suggested settings in post 121 which I thought were not very complete as the author was attempting to get to know his set a little better.

Is there a post or a place to go to get some picture settings for the set that many of the members have used and enjoyed for the LG LM 7600 55 inch

And I'm speculating that the play and/or flex is limited by the facing glass being over that "border" you're talking about. In any case, it's important for fans considering the non-7200 series to know that the 7200 flashlighting has been completely removed by owners. At least the ones who've tried it in the 7200 forum. The 7200 is new enough that many here might not even know it exists, let alone that there was a solution that seems to work. That's a BIG deal for many, and might well move folks over the the 7200 to try it out first.

Look none of this terminology matters. Keep your terminology if you like, I honestly don't care. Just be aware that when you see "bezel" referred to you are almost always going to see it include that border you refer to. Disagree if you like too. That's ok with me.

Let's call that border you're referring to the "thing", and let's pretend for the moment that it's a physical device under the facing glass, but over the lighting apparatus or LCD array. Either.

I'm speculating that that "thing" is preventing the glass from moving inward on the non-7200's.

DO NOT press on the screen or mess with screws holding the screen. I did on one of my sets and it became worse. My bleed was way worse than before. Pressing on the screen to clean it is enough to change the uniformity in my experience. That set got exchanged for other reasons. The new one I got was removed from the box and lifted by the edges. I haven't touched the screen ever. My set is pretty good as far as flash lighting and bleed. I learned my lesson and I won't touch this one. Do so at your own risk.

look on the back of tv and see the manufacture date, let us know what that is as well.
your pictures are quite small, any chance of bigger pics to examine?
from what i see, in the top right corner it looks like you have a big flashlight light bleed issue.
also indicate what settings you are using....turning off things like local dimming will make it worse. ...increasing backlight will also make it worse.
make sure you have energy saving turned off...try backlight at 50, local dimming, medium or high.

but if you cant get a decent picture without the bleed bothering you then take it back before your refund policy wears out.....ive seen way better panels out of the box...they do exist, and returning again and again is not uncommon to get a great one, keep trying as a great one is worth it.

if you take it back to get another, look at serial on box and try to get one with the first 3 numbers being 210, 211 or 212...these would be oct, nov, dec build dates respectively.

Every specimen is different, but people like these settings (even for the 55"):

Photos of 6700 which I returned....







Here are pictures of my new 7600 tv set




on my Sammy refrigerator




Ghost Protocol on Netflix




This is something I noticed when I removed the protective pads from the screen before installing tv stand....I didn't see this on 6700 tv...some sort assembly process?....its a pixel size...but not on viewing area though...so I don't have a problem...its on top left and top right corners



Let me know if your 7600 has similar spot on top corners...

Ok. I didnt remove mine too. Why you put youre tv on top of the fridge? I think that is very hard to watch because you always look up. The best recommendation is you should be watching tvs eye level. imo.

That thing looks sort of like an ambient light sensor I've seen on various devices. My phone, for instance, has a dinky "spot" under the glass that just senses the amount of room light when the brightness is set to variable.

Does anyone know how to turn off the standby light? I've unchecked the box to turn it off in settings but it's still there.

A few software versions back it was hit and miss getting the light to go out it turned mine on and turning it off did nothing. Subsequent updates fixed it.

yes, that little dot is normal...im assuming that is the ambient light sensor for the energy saver mode.

Yes you are right....screen should be at eye level...but I wanted to keep tv away from my son's hot wheels car (or toys) trajectory biggrin.gif
we have an open kitchen layout and so keeping tv on top of the refrigerator is not an issue......I think PQ has not changed overall by watching it from a distance...
for night time movie watching I use my projector....

What the heck is PQ? I see it in a number of posts here.
Is that some US way of saying pic ( picture ) ?
Makes no sense...P and Q...sound nothing like pic or picture....rant over.

Presently still have 04.31.30

Hopefully I don't get the .31 dud ( I have auto update on )

And yes...Televisions should not be too high. Above fireplaces and such is just stupid. It may be "Fasionable"...but just wrong.
A TV stand of no higher than 22" is ideal for this 55"

I seem to stand alone in this, but I think that TV's above the fireplace look completely tacky. A fireplace is a quaint idea---a romantic and picturesque throwback to old. A flat screen TV above that? We'll soon look back on this with the same chuckle we now do toward other out-of-vogue ideas like people walking around with bluetooth ear pieces just in case they get a call, people walking around with the radio they pulled out of their car, and big-hair bands dressed up in something close to women's clothing.

I had to google that to know the reference. I'm guessing Vern Yip wouldn't like TV's over fireplaces either, given the decorating suggestions I found, but I don't know.

some do, some dont, depends on the tv....check the the tvs spec sheet.
features generally are used to bolster a certain models price so arent always standard across all models if they can use it to up-sell you another model higher.

***UPDATE ON MY REPAIR

The Service Center that will be repairing my TV just told me over the phone that they still do not have an ETA on the replacement panel for the television and suggested i call LG again to ask then whats going on with the order.

I called LG a minute ago and they confirmed that the replacement panel is NOT available so they shipped out a "Sub Part" today that "Should also fix the problems on your TV" ... it was explained to me that when an OEM part is not available they have a list of secondary parts they can ship out in their place to fix things.

Uhhhh am i getting some lower end crappier panel put into my brand new TV?

I just called the Service Center and they said they have no idea if that is the case or not and that i have to take it up with LG if i want more specifics on the replacement panel i'm receiving.

Does anyone here have experience with this? I'm worried now... haha

Also,

I occassionally use my 7600 to stream xvid videos from my PC to TV and it works great... but last night i was tinkering around in the settings and i hit erase history of recently watched and recently added.

Then i backed out and discovered that a ton of videos aren't showing up in my list now... all the recent stuff. hahahah Crap!

Is there a way to rebuild the library so i can see all videos again?

A sub part means they are replacing the actual part that is most likely giving the problem rather then replacing the whole panel. The reason they don't usually do that anymore is it's a guess as to what the problem is, or it can be more than one part giving the problem, where simply replacing the panel addresses most anything that was wrong. The panel then would get back and it's there where they fix the one sub part. It has nothing whatsover do to with it being inferior.
