Is that the mother board or the entire back piece?

Did you see Vakmestern's response on this matter, pointing out that the TV's default settings have it set to switch off after 4 hours?

If you haven't already done so, it might be worth checking through the menus to switch this off.

this wasnt the case
i had it on for about 3 hours max, the first time it turned off, i was going from amazon video to netflix
the 2nd time I was watching a blu ray
it turns off, then turns right back on

has any other owner experienced any heat coming from this tv, specifically on the front of the screen, on the opposite side of the motherboard

Ah. Oh well, just an idea.

I experienced something similar with a Samsung F8000 last year, turning itself off and then back on, and it only happened when certain motion control settings were in place. The issue was highlighted to Samsung techs, and resolved in a software update.

After a weekend with this TV, I am still loving it. I am finally able to play movies in a dark environment without bleeding / clouding. I have been through so many LED sets over the last few years.

I had a plasma prior but living at over 6000 ft, it tended to exhibit some strange behaviors.

My neighbor is a bit of a tv snob. Having had a pioneer elite, a kuro, and now the last generation of Panasonic Plasma, the VT60 I think. He was absolutely amazed by the picture quality.

Also the 3D is pretty good on this set. I love the fact that it is passive 3d. Active 3d tends to mess with my eyes.

That's a problem I've yet to see (reboots).

Barry, hard to say without taking off the back of the display and giving it a closer look.

I have had 2 sets and the both put off heat but not as bad a plasma. It should not be extremely hot.

Edge lit LCD also get hot where the led bulbs are, the heat is on the edges, you will not feel it on the center of the screen.

Congrats and do not freak out to much about some of the issues you read about. Although they are real, I have never seen them in content.

I suggest everyone check their sub-pixels to make sure you do not have a major defect. The on/off thing is a little concerning but has happened to me on 2 sets and when the set is hot and cold. Hopefully LG is working on a fix.

I am amazed every single time I watch this TV. OLED 4K 77" must be amazing.

Yes, energy produces heat. Nothing like a Samsung Plasms, I measured 130 degrees on the back of a plasma. Feel the edge of an edge lit LCD, same heat where the led is. I do not think it's a heat issue turning them off, if it was they would not turn right back on.

It's comparable to the front heat on my panny 55st50, only difference is that the oled heat mirrors the back panel placement and the plasma was hot throughout the screen
Agree with you on the on/off

Also, how did you measure the temp?

I used a meat thermometer. LG extends warranty to three years for $160, recommend purchasing for peace of mind.

kind of funny, i recently purchased commando on blu ray, a childhood classic of mine
i watched it with my 5 yr old son yesterday, by far the best the movie has ever looked! (both blu ray trasfer and this tv's picture)
anyways, he comes to me this morning and says, "dad, I want to watch commando again"
im in the living room, with my 65vt30, I ask, do you want me to put it on in here?
he says "no", i want to watch it on the good tv
even my 5 yr old can appreciate this picture

It's good to hear that your five-year-old son insists on the quality that only an OLED TV can provide when he wants to watch his R-rated movies. :-)

I noticed the radiant heat coming off the OLED screen walking past it and I was surprised because I recall feeling the back and the temp was no where near what I felt coming off the front. I thought that the heat would transfer to the back at a similar level.

A meat thermometer? Did it measure fish, poultry, or beef?

MC is up to something with this tv
In their computer there is still a SKU for the 55EA9800 at 1999, however that SKU has had its inventory reduced to 0. The 4999 "version" has a new SKU. Why they do it this way I don't know, but that is what was shown and explained to me in the store after the one I picked up.

Still keeping an eye as they seem to not be completely concrete on their pricing one way or the other. Now some people are seeing 3999 and another that said they briefly did 1999 again.

As for the issues on this TV, most of the things being mentioned are so hilariously minor for such a groundbreaking and affordable set given the technology being provided here, even at 4000.00. I'm so glad to see after all the BS we've gone through with most LCDs and plasmas that the biggest thing we have to worry about on THE FIRST FRIEKEN GENERATION OLED is seeing the imprint of the motherboard in perfect conditions. LOL.
