As the saga continues with BWG Warranty Group. I spoke with the rep again this morning and seems they may be willing to work with me a little better but are asking for details/specifics on why/how I feel the LG 65UH8500 LED TV is NOT a comparable TV as a replacement for my plasma... more then just the black levels and smoothness of the natural picture just are not there and a few small minor things I came up with on the fly real quick, there is a ton of articles/reviews showing the only TV that started coming close to a good plasma panel these days is an OLED rather then a regular 4K LED they are trying to push off on me.But whats the best way to explain that to someone looking to get this settled with as little $$ as possible?

Any help with a few bullet items I can use as ammo to hopefully get a little more cash out of them or an actual quality OLED TV model thats close to the $2900 range I paid for the panny would be VERY helpful? Seemed like I was talking to a typical salesman but at the same time may be willing to work with me? I feel as if I can prove with facts the replacement TV is not a true comparison I should get my full refund of purchase price....

Just have to tell them that a crappy LED is no way a comparable replacement for a VT60. Give me the money so I can kick in the extra for an LG OLED.

Of course that's what I wanna say but most likely will not help the situation right now if there's a chance to get a little better deal out of them.....But may end up telling them that exact statement either way but first wanna try and be civil and present a few facts...

Hi
I'm trying to use the internet browser on my vt 60 to watch a university hockey game. Me thinks the tv browser needs an updated flash program. How on earth do I do that.

2nd question - same goal. Have a Lenovo laptop with vga to hdmi Trying this as plan a above won't work. So neither will the laptop. I tried hdmi 1 and 3.
Me thinks that it has something to do with the f7 key on the laptop-but no matter the configuration I can't seem to project the laptop to the 65" screen via hdmi 1 or 3

Help

Yamaha HTR-6063- receiver (or RX-V667)
Sony Bdp-s590
Panasonic VT60 65

If this is something you're going to do a lot, I suggest you get a Chromecast.

Probably is the F7 key not playing nicely. You are holding down the Function key when depressing F7 - right? You could also try using an HDMI port on your AVR, if one is available.

the laptop doesn't have an HDMI port.

It's very easy. Download the Google Home app. Once the Chromecast is connected, choose it as an SSID from your mobile device. From there you configure onto your WiFI network.

You can also set it up from your laptop using the Chrome browser of course.

Greetings,
I've had my 60VT60 for quite some time now and I am up to 6300 hours or so. Lately I have been noticing increased IR (Very very bad when first turned on) any static pictures (HUDs, Menus in games, etc) even displayed for a small period of time lingers on the display for awhile, also I have noticed severe ghosting or frame blurring during fast motion, extremely noticeable turning quickly in videogames, I have bypassed my receiver, tried different cables to no effect. Is my TV basically on life support and time to pull the plug?

I have the 65 inch and I am at 10,000 hours now. I remember the same thing around 6300 hours and just keep going and it will outgrow the problem. I think around 6400 hours mine was good and then it happened again at around 8500-9000. It drives you nuts I know but keep watching it and it will be gone. It also happened like two times up to the point your at. Seems to happen about every 2500 hours or so. I think it's an ageing software thing.

If you are having IR issues: Did you try the screen wipe function? You'll find it in menu/picture/screen settings. It might help. Let it run for a while.

the screen wipe only helps with the long term IR, the near term stuff with menus, huds, any static image on there for a short duration happens constantly, and the frame blurring/ghosting is very noticeable and distracting. It's like the pixels can't refresh fast enough.
