I also use a dry microfiber and I keep a spray bottle (from the .99 cent store) with distilled water for the E6 in case something is really hard to remove. Or if I have to take care of a small moth or gnat because that definitely demands pausing any movie

LOL dogs... my dog is a 100 lb German Shepard Dog - Rottweiler mix and when he shakes his head all sorts of stuff gets flung. I am constantly cleaning the walls with disinfectant wipes. But the E6 deserves special treatment...

Oddly, I checked my version today to find that it had been upgraded, even though it's actually set to not auto update. I certainly didn't accidentally do the upgrade with a memory stick. It's now at 4.30.95, which is what I believe to be the latest version. Thoughts?

It was driving me crazy trying to get everything to work properly. When I called Denon and LG it's a known issue with the set.

I have handshake issues with an E6P and a VSX 1123 K as well.
Same model year LCD panel with the same firmware revision did not have handshake issues.
Had to pick up the Pannasonic 900 UHD player with dual HDMIs, could not pass a 3D signal through my AVR.

That's really strange. You are the first person to report any internet upgrade happening that I can remember since I first came here in November. It has always been "Download from the LG site, load into the set from a USB stick...".

I'm still on 4.30.15, auto update is on. I even went into settings and clicked on check for updafes and it said none were found.

For B6P, search "4.31.20". A bunch of us updated online within the last week or so, first online cumulative update since 4.30.65. Was glad to get it as 4.31.15 had a good motion fix.

Just joined the club on Tuesday... manage to score an open box 65E6P for $2,250 from Best Buy with a little finesse. Watched the Logan UHD and it was pretty cool, first time actually watching something in HDR with out the colors being off (upgraded from a Samsung 55 inch JU7100, which doesn't handle HDR well at all since it wasn't intentionally designed for it). I just moved to a bigger place with a much bigger living room and it made my old 55 inch seem too little, this looks better but I feel like I could have even went with a 75, but that obviously would have been a much lower quality LCD, and then if I moved somewhere that wasn't as big, that TV would definitely be over bearing.

Anyway I wanted the best technology, a bigger screen, and 3D, and this TV had it all so I wanted to make sure I got one before it was too late and I just happened to get a little lucky. I wish the sound bar could be removed because I am not using it. Also Samsung has way more apps, not that it's super important as I have a PC, Xbox One S, and a PS4 connected, but it would have been nice to just have on the TV when wanted to use certain apps.

Currently the price for the models in U.K. Are;

B £2,600
C £2,600
E £3,200
G £3,500

With the recent price drop of the G from £3,800 and now being so close to the price of the E. I was thinking of spending the extra for the better sound bar as I already have a DVD Sony Surround for now.

However reading about all the handshaking issues and stand alignment and the fact that these tv's will prob go out of stock everywhere soon. What is the best model to get?

I want 3D...the C is loads cheaper, but turned off a bit by the curve, so thinking either E or G.
Other thread also said that with E you get 4 4k ports for hdmi and G only 2.
So apart from slightly better sound bar and a foldable base. Is the E the better one of the 2 due to loads of issues with the G??

That's a pretty nice deal Congrads........If I could find a OLED77G6P at about $6000 as a demo unit, I would be very happy....

Welcome to the club. 75" is a great screen size but quality over quantity rules the day for me. You'd have been less happy with a larger yet crappier LCD. Enjoy the new set!

Pretty Happy so far...

Got my 65" E6P Saturday, build date 702, so I've had a little time to play around with it. So far the panel seems good. Although these slide shots I took don't look as good as some panels I've seen on here I have no banding in content, no green tint off axis, and the 3D looks good as long as I'm far enough away from the screen. If I get too close I start showing some ghosting on the test .jpeg Joseph Clark posted on here at the top and bottom of the screen but it's nothing that wouldn't be hidden by the black bars.


Cable content doesn't look the greatest but it's watchable. Some channels are better than others. Some even look pretty good.
Also, maybe it's just me or the improvement of colors on this set but sometimes I think they are a little over saturated.


I'm currently viewing in ISF Dark mode with all the enhancement turned off except for TruMotion. I have that set to "User: De-Judder-0 and De-Blur-10".


Attached are the "Before" 2,3,5 and 100% slides. What 'cha think? (Pardon the colored specs in the darker pics, my camera has some "hot" pixels and that round dark spot a little to the right of center is from a spot on the lens)

I recall reading somewhere that the small second remote on the G6 is an RF remote, rather than IR. My guess is US spec E6's don't have the RF receiver in them, so it's not something you could fix with SW. Or maybe you can, in the service menu?

The big remote that came with the E6 is RF or Bluetooth (which is also RF) - it can be under a blanket and still work. It may also be IR, but it's definitely not just line of sight.

That pink tint is the screen coating, a lot of sets have it at an angle on the left and right side of the screen.

Anyone here got advice on moving the E6 when you move houses?
I need to move the TV into a new place but the LG box is not the best for re-seal as it was held together by 3 straps that you had to cut to get the TV out.
There is no way to secure the base to the box.

I will be using a moving company so need something that I dont need to be worried about.

Thanks

While there is a pink tint to the screen when it's off, I don't think that is the cause of the tint issues that people are speaking of with the TV on. If it were, the the entire screen would have the tint - and it would affect ALL sets.

For whatever reason, some sets have a redish tint on one side and a blueish tint on the other side. I also have that, but only when viewing from an angle - and it's only really noticeable on a pure white screen (advertisements with a solid white background and ice hockey) - and even then, you really have to look for it to notice it.

But again, I don't think this has anything to do with the pinkish anti-glare coating or else it would affect the entire screen the same (and all white image would have a pink'ish tint) - and it would affect all sets.

As long as it is moved "standing upright" shouldn't be an issue, however you could also use adjustable tie downs from Harbor Freight or something comparable

G6

Is it normal that the over the air updates via the G6 shows an older version and going online to download it yields a newer version? Mine was on 04.30.40 and over the air showed it was the latest and on LG's website I was able to download 04.30.80 and install it via USB.

I believe it is, and here is why.

When I move at a certain angle the pink tint disappears.
If I look at my screen from the side of the TV I can clearly see a distinct curve on that side of the screen in question.
The screen bends slightly forward on the side with the tint effect.
When I move my seating position to the same side that the tint effect appears the tint becomes more prominent.
The tint effect is the same colour as the screen coating.
Having looked at a lot of screens shots of these TVs the effect only appears on the edges and people have reported that moving seating positions does make this appear/disappear.
So I think it comes down to screens not being absolutely straight.


TL : DR
The tint effect on the side in question of my TV, the screen curves slightly inward.
Shifting seating positions makes this effect disappear.
Tint effect same colour as the screen coating.

EDIT:
Check out the attached image, look at the far side of the screen it has a slight curve to it.
Also in bright day light I see the light refract/bend from that side of the screen differently than the other side of the screen.

OLED is a game changer.

Yes, it's normal. With a few exceptions lately, just about everyone here who has current firmware on E and G models either got the set that way or went online to download it and installed it from a USB thumb drive.

Not sure why LG isn't more proactive pushing the updates out, but it's annoying.

Thanks Doug. Now I really need to calibrate this thing. I have been lurking the forum and there are hundreds of pages. Whats the easiest way to get calibration settings for this firmware/OLED because I haven't seen any from the pages I looked at. Any suggestions?

For whatever reason, some sets have a redish tint on one side and a blueish tint on the other side. I also have that, but only when viewing from an angle - and it's only really noticeable on a pure white screen (advertisements with a solid white background and ice hockey) - and even then, you really have to look for it to notice it.

But again, I don't think this has anything to do with the pinkish anti-glare coating or else it would affect the entire screen the same (and all white image would have a pink'ish tint) - and it would affect all sets.
Off axis viewing once you move off center past a certain point will cause color shifts. It's not unusual.

The obsolete and no longer made CRTs, Plasmas, and rear projection devices like DiLA had the problem least. OLEDs are very good but not perfect (as you've noticed). LCDs are the worst, and start to fall apart almost immediately once you move off center.

Somewhere here there is a separate thread with suggested settings you can try. Just be aware that these sets and their panels are not perfectly consistent, and so someone's ideal settings for their set may not be ideal for yours.

And as a suggestion, take pictures of the screen with the original settings up so you can get back to where you started without having to spend an hour writing everything down.
