Still waiting to hear back from Consumer Electronics, the technicians that are working on the TV. They're supposed to call me today and let me know what they've learned about fixing the problem by calling LG techs. Once I hear, I'll share.

While waiting for them I did contact LG customer service about options I have in case the claim continues that they cannot fix the TV. They've let me know that I have the option to get a replacement TV or refund. Because this model has the issue pretty prevalently, I may just seek a refund and go back to shopping. I want it to be fixed, though, as I really like this TV aside from the banding issue.

I found an Amazon review for this model that said "On horizontal pans of light background material you WILL see Vertical banding of varying degrees."

They still gave the set a five though...

Depending on the degree it may not even be unusual. Personally mine has some amount of clouding and banding which I noticed at first, but haven't thought about it in weeks until now.

I believe uniformity issues of one type or another belong to all large thin LCDs, especially common with edge-lit LED like this. If you decide to return because of a uniformity issue, you should probably just consider a Plasma next, or chances are that you will just encounter another uniformity issue.

Read that review, too, and this is true. Like clouding and flashlighting, this issue is certainly not rare on edge-lit LEDs. The degree of the issue, though, has been my problem. I can't ignore it and since the panel replacement, my wife is noticing it now, too. Before she was having trouble seeing it. When I shared banding with LG, it was their insistence that I should not see it at all and it was what prompted them to schedule service.

Anyways, called the group again after not hearing back and it looks like Saturday they'll call me. I'll let you know what they finally say.

Anyone have any ideas about the web browser? No way to stop the pop-ups? Also noticed that, when watching videos, clicking on Full Screen appears to have no effect, can only watch small size videos.

Thanks for any thoughts,

I have the same TV and I found 2 spots last night, but one is a cluster of 3. According to Lgs website anything less then 8 dead pixels on a 55+ inch TV is considered acceptable and will not be covered by warranty. But I hope with enough complaining and the fact there is visible vertical banding I can get the panel replaced! I'll let you know what happens.

In TruMotion settings play with the Dejudder setting you like. It affects the SOE

We just bought the 42" version.. What test should we do initially? Also should we buy a wall bracket or is one included already?

So I finally got a call back a mere 5 days after they said they would. As has been stated before, there is no fix for the issue. That is, depending on who you talk to. The customer service side of LG says I should not be seeing it. At least not as prevalent as I have been. The tech side of LG says deal with it. The other mixed message I got was one person on the customer service side saying I could get a refund for the television and another saying I couldn't. Currently, because the new panel is worse than the old panel and I am still within 30 days of the installation, I'm seeking yet another panel to see if the third one is a charm.

Your brother will need to accept those banding problems if he wants to keep the TV. If he can't, and he's still within the time frame to return the television, he might want to look at another set. It's a shame for me to see this issue on a TV that I love every other aspect of. When it shines, it shines. When it bands, I cry.

Has anyone done an input lag test on this?

I need to know the average input lag before I drop my cash on this panel.

Just noticed that you've had this set for a while. Out of curiosity, did you not notice the banding on your own and just on your brother's set?

thanks to those who shared the service menu tips, I used the an IR and the WAV file to get my LM5800 into EZ-Adjust and was able to reduce flash lighting/edge bleed by around 70%. I first changed the model to 6200 and then turned on local dimming and a few others. Would anyone recommend trying to flash the 6200 firmware onto a 5800?

Can you refresh the way to get on the service menu witch IR LED and wav file, where can i get that wav file, and what settings to modify in the service menu.
Mine is a 42lm6200

My set has no issues whatsoever, no banding, no lag or anyting. Guess I lucked out! As for my brothers, his is pretty bad banding wise and they are replacing his panel on Monday.

I turned on the Local Dimming and it doesn't look good, anything else I need to change in the service menu? maybe the backlight type? model type? etc?

According to HDNation's review, the color accuracy for LM6200 is really sub-par. Is it true?

Technically yes (reds are off) but not as bad as they say and nothing you should be able to notice with a good calibration.
post #770 of 998
Just picked this up. I see yellowing on the bottom left corner. Is this normal???

[edit]Nevermind, it's due to flashlighting.
Has anyone gotten a near perfect panel? Looks like this one's going back to the shop. This is disappointing. I will come back with some more impressions later tomorrow.

thought I'd post something I stumbled across on my 55lm6200. I was trying to program my bell 9241 pvr remote (5.2IR) with a LG tv remote code when I fudged a number. Anywho, using code 573 (corresponds to KTV, philco, nec,mitsubishi etc) I am able to enter the service menu by pressing 9 then the unlock code (using my lk450's remote). Use 9 to back out of whatever option you are in too. One thing i found interesting was if i pressed 3 the tv did a quick switch to my component input. I am currently using code 627 which lets me select inputs vs using the magic remote. If any one knows of a better code that allows for direct input switching with this remote please share. I find it a little tedious having to go through the steps to get to where I'd like to go. Also Going through some of the options I noticed my panel as 8 bit . I thought these were 10bit panels.??
post #772 of 998
Is there a way to turn off the 120hz processing permanently via service menu? I would like to be able to use expert setting with minimum input lag like you could on a 60hz ld/lk450.

You'll have to tell me how the replacement panel works. I've had a bit of trouble getting the third party company to do anything to fix the issue. Chatted again with LG and they're now sending an LG factory technician out and this is giving me some hope. Just tired of cringing with my wife when a movie shows a bright sky or light colors because we know the banding issue is going to bring us out of the movie.

I'll be sure to let you know and I totally understand what you mean about cringing during movies when banding appears, my last set was pretty bad and it really took me out of everything I watched.

I'm sure I will find someone with this TV though that has a very good compatible router that they love. Or maybe I can test and return one myself if it doesn't help.

Ive got my 55lm6200 running through an Asus rtn16 with tomato firmware. Couldn't ask for a better setup. Have 2 2tb usb hardrives hooked up serving my hd video and music to tv and anything else on my network.

My brother had his panel replaced today and the new one was worse than the original, he called LG and talked to a manager who told him that they would try another panel to see if that fixes it. and also see if he needed a new board. He asked about getting a replacement / refund and they told him that LG's policy is to offer those options only after the set has been repaired 3 times. He did laugh though when he called me because the new panel has no clouding at all, so if it's not one issue it's another.

So he had the same problem I did. I couldn't get Consumer Electronics to put another panel in so I complained to LG and an LG tech is coming today. Don't know if he has what he needs to replace the panel, but it would be awesome if he did. I laughed when Consumer Electronics told me that the panel sent from LG was tested to be defect free and that if that didn't fix the problem there was no way to fix it. I was like, "Dude! The panel looks worse with a new light bleed issue at the bottom that washes out dark pictures!"

Oh well. Apparently third time IS a charm. Good luck!

Returned the TV. It didn't really excel at anything. Average PQ at best. It was more of a jack of all trades, but a decent one at that. It even has a pretty good input lag for a 42" IPS panel.

Hi guys,

Can someone confirm that a 32lm6200 actually has a 120Hz panel? I intend to use this as a PC monitor and I want to use it to watch movies and tennis matches using Smooth Video Project, and from what I've read I need to turn TruMotion off to get the best quality video.

So can I definitely use it as a 120Hz monitor? Also my Geforce 9600Gt only has DVI out, so will 120Hz and watching 3D movies work with a DVI-HDMI adapter?

Thanks everyone!!
