Arrow Official 2018 LG UK6300 Series Owners Thread [No Price Talk]

This thread is intended to cover the entire LG UK6300XXX series of 4K HDR Smart LED UHD TVs which are available in 43", 49", 50", 55", and 65" classes. Per LG, the XXX suffix (i.e. PUE, BUB, etc.) designates the sales channel and has no impact on specifications.

I purchased a 49UK6300PUE yesterday. My primary purchasing criteria was to find a 49" or 50" TV with an on-board Dolby Digital (AC-3) decoder capable of accepting an AC-3 bitstream via HDMI and playing the audio over its internal speakers.

Ironically, I called LG in advance of my purchase to confirm that their TVs could decode an AC-3 bitstream via HDMI. After being put on hold several times, I was ultimately told by support that none of their currently shipping models featured this functionality and I would require an AVR or a sound bar to decode the bitstream! Samsung told me the same thing...

Fortunately, my local LG retailer allowed me to test my 2017 16GB NVIDIA SHIELD (Android TV device) in their showroom. Viola, both the SK8000 series and the UK6300 series that I tested were able to decode an AC-3 bitstream via HDMI.

Out of the box observations:
  • Great initial setup; able to enter language and timezone only without further "Smart TV" (webOS) configuration.
  • Good IPS panel viewing angle.
  • Low nits (cd/m2) display; it doesn't "pop."
    • Edit: Once the TV is calibrated properly, the LG 'Active HDR' settings (i.e., Dynamic Contrast and Dynamic Tone Mapping) make a huge difference. HDR content really pops! (e.g. Blade Runner 2049 isn't "too dark.")
  • Cheap plastic stand legs; TV could easily be tipped over.

Sorry, long ago I was active on this forum, but just had a lightning strike close by driving me to replace my TV.
Just got LG Electronics 65UK6300PUE 65-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart TV (2018 Model) from Amazon. Was disappointed with the picture at first and ordered Spears & Munsil HD Benchmark and Calibration Disc 2nd Edition and have started to improve the picture...kind of. Please share your methods and result of calibration.

I used AVIA and my PS3 Blu-ray player to determine my initial SDR settings; white level (contrast), black level (brightness), sharpness, saturation (color), and hue (tint). Saturation and hue were adjusted using a blue filter.

I double checked my saturation and hue settings using the THX optimizer and a blue filter. No adjustments were necessary.

I also verified all settings using my LG UP875 UHD Blu-ray player set to output YCbCr. Everything looked good, no adjustments were necessary.

I'm pleased with the results. HDR content pops, color accuracy is great, and HD content looks excellent as well.

A couple of updates:
  • After comparing each of the RGB primaries against a color decoder check pattern using the built-in color filter, I adjusted the Color setting from 72 to 51.
  • The LG MKJ39170828 remote can be used to access the service menu(s). Password is "0413".

Just got one. Am a pixel peeper and color enthusiast, and today, among the wall of cheap 43" 4K TVs at Best Buy, the LG really stood out. The others were that "faux 4K" meaning that diagonal pixel mess, where if you use it as a monitor, vertical lines are blurry zigzags up close. This one has square pixels! Then I saw it was IPS and was sold. But I got the 49" instead (50 class), and at home I'm not seeing the same sharpness, and off angle is bad, not like the IPSes I know. (My other TV is Sony XBR 850D, and I have several Dell IPS monitors.)

Is it just me, is is off angle pretty poor? Is the 43" perhaps a better panel than the 49"? Is there a panel lottery??

Thanks for starting the thread, ptelles.

Sony 65" IPS XBR-850D - and, outside, 2011 Mits DLP. My contribution: getting that DLP firmware to 13.06 to fix picture quality. More here: https://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...3#post21726833

Oh crap.... my eyes weren't fooling me... this 50" is not IPS, according to this post: https://www.avsforum.com/forum/166-l...l#post56495360

RETURN!

Okay... I thought I bought the 49", but I bought the 50" (would have never imagined both of those sizes were available, but leave it to Best Buy to have a special size made for them, with the higher contrast but lower viewing angle VA panel).

rtings confirms the 49" is IPS, but the 50" is VA: https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/lg/uk6300

Sorry for the multiple posts.

Yeah, the 50" is a VA panel. Apparently only Best Buy Canada sells the 49" model.

I'm back with a 43" UK6300. Love it. Could actually serve as a computer monitor. In fact, it's in the kitchen, connected to a PC, to be both an entertainment display and a recipe browser / editor.

My first LG outside a washer and dryer.

Life is Gear.

Glad you got things squared away. Welcome back!

The VA panel would have definitely sucked in the kitchen.

Issue with LG Uk6300 with picture going off the black bar on left hand side...

The picture goes off the left hand side of the screen past the black bar end. I have attatched picture to show the issue. It is a 43 inch tv I am using as a monitor and i really only noticed this now after having it a couple weeks...oddly enough I noticed it when I move my desk with the tv still on and all of a sudden I see it.. Could moving the table damage the screen and this is the result?? is there anything I can do besides return it? Anybody else ever have this issue?

I have just bought this TV but I appear t be missing WIDE colour gamut. Extender and Auto are there. Are my HDMI sockets broken? I have turned deep colour on. Does the source material have to be 4K? I am trying the inbuilt netflix and Amazon apps and the hdr programmes are not letting me see a WIDE setting.

Auto will display the correct gamut for HDR content when HDR is played, no need to change the setting (within the TV's native color gamut).

Thanks. That’s what I have set to. Just wanted to know why others seem to have the wide setting but it’s missing on mine. Will have to contact LG.

Just had to report a bug to LG with the firmware. My tv updated a few days ago and I don't know if its since then but something strange is happening. If I turn off the LG Connect apps option in the networks settings (which LG recommend to do when not using) and turn off the tv completely on the wall or have a power cut for a few seconds etc then the option turns itself back on. It also turns itself back on if you disable the quick start so the tv fully turns off from standby. This should certainly not happen. The reason i need it off is because it steals half your wifi bandwidth with the option turned on and Netflix never reaches the bandwidth needed for HDR 2160. Once its disabled Netflix is fine.

I am starting the process of researching TVs to replace a TV in my exercise room. I have been eyeing the LG 43 UK6300. I really appreciated your post and doubly appreciated your detailed settings listed below. If I get this TV, I will surely give your settings a try. That is one of the things I love about AVSforum is getting settings help.

Are the stands as flimsy as they say? I am guessing it is more of an issue for the larger TV sizes than the 43".

I am mostly going to be watching sports on this TV. And wide viewing angles would be a plus. The room doesn't get a ton of sun, but having a bright picture would be appealing.

It has been a while since I bought a TV....but it seems the value per price point has gotten pretty good.

Hello, I have a simple home entertainment kit from Samsung model: ht-e453hk (it's a DVD player with 5.1 speakers that has also AUX and S/PDIF input) which was connected via optic cable to my PC. that worked well and I saw content with surround sound 5.1 no problem.
Now I got the LG 55UK6300YVB TV and tried to connect it to the Samsung player with the optic cable and put some movies on the NETFLIX app on the TV to see if it works (movies with 5.1 sound). I can hear the speakers work but only the front, not the back. tried to check every option available on the tv settings and the Samsung kit settings and can't make it work. Either the TV can't send 5.1 sound through Optic cable or the Samsung kit can't receive it (Although it did work with the PC). Thought maybe to change the setting on the service menu on the tv so that it would pass-through the DTS (maybe it set only on PCM as i saw on one youtube clip) but couldn't get to open the service menu for this model.
Any help would be appreciated

All HDMI ports burned out

Anyone else have all 3 HDMI ports burn out, one after the other, in a period of a month?

43UK6300 from Best Buy. Had it connected to a GTX 1050 over HDMI, and eventually the TV would receive no signal through the HDMI port. Switching to another HDMI port worked, for a couple weeks, until it too burned out. Crazy. I will get it fixed while still under 1-year parts and labor warranty.

I have a 65UK6300.

Never occurred to me to ensure it had a headphone jack...

We got a BT headset but are unhappy with it for two reasons:
  • Low battery life (I know this has nothing to do with the TV, but we spent too much for the headset and don't want to buy another)
  • Worst is that when you shut the BT headset off the TV reverts to Internal Speaker!

Is there any way to adapt a conventional headset to this TV? Whether by USB, HDMI adapter, etc. We have been using a relatively cheap wireless (via headphone jack) headset for several years and have been very happy with it. Would really like to be able to go back to using it.

BTW, I was very disappointed with the overall PQ when I first got it, and at how limited the options were to change brightness/contrast/color etc. Then I discovered the "More" button... For the price I am very happy now.

@thhowl , are you perhaps letting the TV autoshut-off or get shut down with PC?

I just found using the 43UK6300PUE as monitor, if Quick Start+ is turned enabled, it will sometimes not wake properly then fail to accept HDMI input when it has shut down due to loss of signal or recieved shutdown command. It will see you move the cable from one input, you can change to that input, detecting and offering that input as a selection choice; however once selected it will say "No Signal". It lies.
Simply changing from Settings > All Settings > General > Quick Start+ from enabled to disabled and then turning the set off and on fixed the issue for me.

I am using a GTX 1070 to drive the display.

I am also a bit disappointed, somewhere in the TV's component, it is not 4:4:4 and does Chroma SubSampling. It is silly that I can still confirm my old Insignia from Best Buy does 4:4:4 and yet some modern sets that should be far better do not. Sadly most of the test image links in the first few posts of that thread appear dead.

Otherwise it makes a good monitor. Size was perfect to view and read text at 3840x2160. Even works at 4096x2160.
I've mitigated the Chroma Subsampling issue to some extent by forcing stretching of a custom resolution (3456x1944 via NVIDIA control Panel) which helps (can still notice it a bit with some test images but most look good); also makes it a bit easier on my old eyes for reading.

Ok, getting quite annoyed with the auto-dim/brightness changes. Like when half the screen is light, half is dark, then you switch the half-dark side to light as well and vice-versa.
(Good example: I created 2 browser windows side by side of this page [browser 1 and browser 2], then in browser 2 I added another tab on store.steampowered.com. Leaving browser 1 on this page, and switching browser 2 from this page to the Steam tab changes the output levels and makes browser 1 darker or lighter depending on which tab is active in browser 2. Happens instantly and is quite annoying.)
I've tried looking and using many posted solutions. Even bought the remote recommended ptelles with no luck. Been through many menus.

InStart > 0413 > System 1 > Dimming : Off - changed some coloring, does not disable the auto dim but does decrease intensity some - Setting also does NOT survive a power off then on. Does help some with my other complaint, yellow color issues but still leaves yellow not right on color and does not help with the dimming it is not a help in either the dimming or yellow category.
Adj > 0413 > Tool Option 6 > Adaptive Dimming > Step 1 : Step 12 - tried all options didn't seem to make a difference. Based on some comments this may be related to Dynamic Contrast which I've already disabled along with all power saving and any other image processing.

Just to be clear all of the following are Off/Disabled:
Dynamic Contrast: Off
Dynamic Color: Off
Super Resolution: Off
Noise Reduction: Off
MPEG Noise Reduction: Off
Real Cinema: Off
Motion Eye Care: Off
TruMotion: Off
Energy Saving: Off
Eye Comfort Mode: Off


The TPC setting commonly found in the OLED threads does not exist on this model as far as I was able to find (perhaps I missed it).

Anyone have any ideas?

-
Another annoyance is the color, yellows stink.
I may have a go at trying to calibrate it, but really don't think it will help much.

@Kelendral , it has taken me a while to test your suggestion for fixing the "dead HDMI ports" issue, but today I did and I thank you so much for letting me know how to fix it. It works!

I'll let you know if I find anything out about the dimming and colors.

Glad to help.

This is actually a similar problem to the issue Samsung TVs have with the Samsung InstantOn Feature and their networking and smart Hub applications.

It is also similar to issues that some application have with the Window option Fast-Start-up (which gets turned back on with almost every Windows 10 update even though it has been proven to cause compatibility issues since some drivers do not get properly reset).

All of them work by going to the lowest "common" state then going to a more hibernation like state instead of truly shutting down and restarting. Thus their restart state has cached/stale information in some drivers and the drivers don't always properly clear the stale information correctly. In all cases it is better to sacrifice the one or 2 seconds saved to avoid issues and have a cleaner running reboot of the system.

Lg uk6300

the 50" model is a VA panel so if someone had the calibration settings for this model it would be great.

I just bought one, 199.99 for a 43" at NewEgg.com, was delivered today! Going to use it as a PC Monitor, so I appreciate all the comments so far about settings for a PC.

I will be interested to see if it will automatically turn on, when I turn on the PC, or if I will need to manually turn on the TV each time.

Thanks for everyone's comments so far!

I have a 65 inch LG E8 as my primary TV, so I will be interesting to see how this tv compares!
