Yup it's still happening. In fact, after the update it happened while I wasn't even watching anything... It still bothers me every time I see it.

Same here. Is it just when watching something over HDMI for you? I haven't seen it on other inputs, but I very rarely use those.

I haven't viewed much through hdmi. I only play games (Xbone, PS4) and haven't noticed it too much. But it happens everytime I watch through Netflix or videos from my hard drive.

Ok, Im going nuts trying to figure out what the difference between the 55LB5500 and 55LB5550 is and for the life of me I keep finding conflicting information all over the web. I have spent hours on this! Do all LG TV's now have IPS panels by default? At first it appeared the LB5500 does not have an IPS panel and the LB5550 does but now I keep finding vendor links that show the LB5500 has an IPS panel as well (and some show not). Someone please help! LG's own website is pretty vague as well on the matter...

Have you noticed it happening more often since the latest update? Now it seems to happen once or twice every time I watch a show.

The update isn't live in my country yet, or at least it wasn't last night. Once I install that I'll let you know.

^^^ Ridiculous how many questions in this thread are people asking simple spec questions that should just be clearly posted by the manufacturer themselves (even worse there is mis-information being published). Im at a loss why companies do this. Makes it that much harder for the "informed" consumer to shop and decide... which is a lot of consumers these days, gone are the days of walking into a store and being sold whatever mumble-jumble the sales-person spits out at you. Wake up LG (and most other big companies). Rant over/

Hey guys, got my 55LB7200 today. WOW!!!! awesome TV.

One thing thought, I am kind of disappointed with the local dimming though, I put in The Dark Knight with the Joker and Gordon scene in the integration room when it is dark and when Joker raises his hand you see the local dimming kick in and looks like a lens flare effect. I have it on low but I tried every one, high and medium. Other than that it is an awesome tv.

I did calibrate it. My room is dark and I have the backlight at 50. at 80 it is way too bright


Can you comment on whether you see any darker vertical bands as seen on the earlier YT videos in this thread when viewing solid color backgrounds like the Netflix splash screen? I feel like I've adequately reduced it on my set, but I'm seeing other anecdotal information on Amazon and LG's sites where others are seeming to report this and I'm curious if it's a systemic issue or just with certain sets.
I just got a LG 55lb6300 today from Best buy no light bleed thank god.I do notice when thetvTV first tunes on I do see just barley the vertical bars on both side of the screen about 3 inchs out they are not that bad at all but they are there.How did you end up reducing yours on your TV.Please let me know thanks.

Updated 4.30.08 today. Look at the webOS TV Version. It states "1.3.0-3208(afro-arches)". What the hell is afro-arches?

I picked up a 60LB7100 for $999.99 at Microcenter. I've been pretty impressed so far.

Global Diming = Dynamic Contrast

This "global dimming" sounds exactly like how Dynamic Contrast is meant to behave - darkening and lightening the screen depending on the content.


If Dynamic contrast is disabled and the dimming occurs - I'd suggest you have buggy firmware there.

Global dimming has been around for awhile now and is not related to dynamic contrast.

Global dimming auto adjusts the brightness regardless of energy settings. It is a way for TV to get better blacks. It is a very stupid feature. When your watching something that has a very dark scene or playing a game with dark area it sucks!!!!!!!

There is no way to disable it LG refuses to fix it.

I had 4 different sets and a lot of firmware updates and it is still there. Other people also have this problem!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

50lb6000

Does anyone have an LG LB6000 series? I searched the forum and google, and have found limited info. LG.com doesn't have much either. I would like to know if it has an IPS screen, and whether it is a true 240hz set. Any other impressions or info would be appreciated. Thanks!

Why does the Amazon product page for the LB7100 now say the tv is 120hz? It lists it as a 120hz tv, but then the description says 240hz(native). I remember when it also used to say led backlight and now it has edge-lit in parenthesis. I can't find it saying 240hz on LGs website, but am I right in assuming a MCI of 960 translates to 240hz?

I picked up a 65 LB6300 and I have edge bleed around the bottom corners and sides. Is this something I am going to have to deal with or should I take it back?

Hi I went thru 4 LG 55LB6300 they all had light bleed in one of the corners.All Edge lot screens have some sort of Light bleed just some worse them others.I'm on my 4 55LB6300 an just started noticing black dots on my screen just a tad smaller then a dime Ialso have some light bleed.I love the Stupid TV so much I got a TV repair guy coming on Monday to look at it so he can have LG send a replacement screen.I only hope that the replacement screen is a good one.I can tolerate light bleed long as its very minamal an not to bright.I have come to learn that LG on there 2014 models have some serious QCissues with there displays..sorry for the long story.Just letting you know they all have light bleed in one way or another..

Anyway to tell which LG TV's are IPS Panels by serial numbers or anything. In the past I have seen threads saying to look for a certain letter but nothing this year that I can find. I am looking at a 32LB5600. I was thinking about using it as a computer monitor. The tv appears to have come out fairly recently so it is hard to find reviews of it for this purpose. The best I could find was some guy on amazon stating he had used it as a monitor and it worked fine but I haven't seen any data related to Response times or anything.


Thanks,
