It's not in the warranty. You'd have to get a tech to come out to verify it on camera, so that LG can see it themselves. If the tech who comes out can't capture it convincingly on cam, you may be in the wind.

On the other hand, if you buy from a retail establishment with a no questions asked return/exchange policy, you shouldn't even need to involve LG.

Thanks for the info! My tinting is very slight, and no vignetting that I've seen, but not sure how to tell for sure.

Interestingly, I spoke with lg support and they said there should be no pinkish tint, but I had to call them back when I was in front of my set. If I decide to do this, I'll let you know how it goes.

How can I check for vignetting?

Thanks

^ Download the AVS slides to a USB drive and check the 5% slide.

But if you see no issues with content, I wouldn't bother.

23.976 fps/hertz

On the B6 (latest firmware), how do I tell which fps/hertz the display is showing. Only tags like [16:9] [1080p] [PCM] is shown for HDMI2 (Shield TV connected to). I want to make sure that I get correct 23.976 fps playback for my Blurays...

Quick question about HDMI Ultra HD Deep Color on these sets: Should I only have this enabled for a true 4K source such as a UHD Bluray player? I currently have all my sources connected directly to my Marantz NR1606 receiver, which does support full UHD. I am about to hook up my Philips UHD player and I'm wondering if I should change my approach and dedicate an HDMI input on the TV to just that so I can have separate HDMI Deep Color settings?

For reference, my other sources are:

Apple TV
DirecTV 4k Genie

Any thoughts?

Unless, of course, the software problem is due to the firmware updating code being broken so it won't update properly :-).

Thanks. Another poster suggested that the firmware upgrade provided this. However, it seems like it only appears within the internal apps. When I play HDR content from Amazon, it appears to give me the ability to set the 2 point white balance, but it loses ALL of the settings I make. Unless I want to use the defaults, I'd need to reset my HDR settings every time I start the app.

I actually have the same setup and receiver, sans the Apple TV with my Sony 940c. I would enable Deep Color for the UHD BluRay and it's the reason I have that going to a different HDMI input on my Sony 940c (the same would be true of the OLED). In my case my OLED is not connected to an audio receiver, but there I have a Samsung UHD BluRay connected to my HDMI 2 input with Deep Color enabled.

In my case, on both TVs, I don't have Deep Color enabled for the 4K mini Genie only because most of what I watch via Directv is not 4K. But I don't think it would do any harm and is probably worth playing with to see if there's a difference.

^ Thanks Ken. I think I'm at a fairly good configuration now. I have the Genie and ATV connected through the receiver. The UHD BD player has audio connected through HDMI to the receiver and video is connected to its own input on the TV. The HDMI CEC thing was driving me nuts for a while, with it switching inputs automatically on the receiver, but fortunately I can turn that off and retain ARC on the Marantz so I think now all is well.

I'm watching my first ever UHD Bluray right now (The Martian) and it is the most spectacular image quality I have ever seen. LOVE this TV

Thanks a lot, I'm really tempted to replace my Samsung 75" F8000 with the 65" B6, even though it's 10" smaller (the Samsung has a lot of vertical banding).

Hello all,

I bought a 55B6P two weeks ago, and decided to exchange it because of horrible pink/green tint that could be seen on content and black levels were much lighter on the left side of the screen (kinda like reverse vignetting if you will?). It was a June build (606).

Just got my replacement set, a July build (607). I haven't turned it on yet, I decided to post here first and pray to the OLED gods that this one's uniformity is at least a little better.

I'm joining the club.... I just ordered a 2016 B6 from an online store.

I'm a little worried about the small random risk of losing out on the 'bad screen' lottery, not having bought from a brick and mortar store with no-questions returns. (Should have bought from LL Bean? )

I was initially concerned about the Mexico origin but read here that all models are made in Korea where US models are all assembled in Mexico.

You folks here before me seem to be having decent luck.

Fingers crossed....

LG is definitely not making it easy for me to enjoy this TV. I turned on the TV and had a hard time going through initial setup because the magic wand remote is not fully functional. Cursor doesn't come up, directional keys/enter/tons more don't work even though the power button lights up when I press them. Thank god I had the TV already programmed in my harmony remote. I placed a call in to LG and they are going to send me a replacement remote in, wait for it, 10-12 days. If not for the harmony remote, I'd be really pissed right now.

Ok, done ranting. I decided I wasn't gonna use slides this time around. If I can't notice a 'defect' while watching TV/Netflix/etc.., I don't really care. And right now, I can safely say that I cannot see the horrible pink/green tint on the same content that would really bring it out on the first set, using the same settings (ISF Dark). This makes me really happy!

I think they've really mastered 55". It's 65" that still needs additional refinement to get it to plasma level uniformity.

Purchased a 55B6 two weeks ago after following the threads on 2016 OLEDs since March. No obvious issues on slides although somewhat darker in the centre on 5%. Prior to calibration, showed flaws on streaming content more than my Kuro. Also showed a much brighter, more interesting picture.

Used my Spyder4 Pro with HFCR/AVCHD. Driver install was a bit tricky but all fine after that. 5 IRE is hard to measure with the Spyder.
Oled 35
Contrast 80
Brightness 52
Both Sharpness are 0,
colour and tint default
Trumotion 3, 10
gamma 2.4
Struggled at first to manage a significantly low red on my set. Today got a really good result by using both 2pt and 20pt. Had to drop 2pt High values for green to -31 and blue -23 which dropped luminance to target 130 for 100%. 20pt was minor tweaking after that. Dropped luminance on 5 IRE to -5 to get solid blacks.

Not sure if I can post images as a new forum member. Luminance is now right on the curve. RGB and colour temp (solid 6500) both tight after 10 IRE. Gamma avg 2.34, dE avg .3, dE max is .99.

Fantastic image now, watched Guardians of the Galaxy on Netflix and the colours looked amazing. Most streaming issues are now not noticeable. Major upgrade from the Kuro.

tell you what...out of all of the different displays I've had over the years(believe me many). this current model(55in) is by far the best at having great uniformity.

It is definitely the panel lottery...there's a tiny hint of vignette on the right-hand side of my current G6 (not a problem to me) but also one significant band left of center that is more pronounced than my liking, showing up in content more than I'd like so it nags. It cost too much to just live with it, and I'm all used up with Best Buy returns, so I'm hoping LG does the right thing again.

These are the first two sets I haven't yet gotten calibrated. All my prior displays were professionally calibrated, but largely because no matter what I did, they didn't look right.
The reason Ken's opinions are meaningless is because a 940c (especially an uncalibrated one) has a lot of the same issues you find with OLEDs. So proclaiming it's as good as his Sony isn't really saying much.

Per HDTVtest review of 940c:

"We also wished to see the return of [Smooth Gradation], a nice Sony-exclusive feature that worked effectively to smooth out contouring in compromised sources. As it stood, the KD75X9405C manifested a touch more posterisation in select scenes from less-than-pristine Blu-rays compared with the Samsung UE78JS9500, though both displays were a good deal cleaner than the LG EG960 which had a tendency to exaggerate film grain and digital noise."

Like all FALD sets, gamma is constantly manipulated to make the most out of the limited LCD native contrast. Gamma will fluctuate depending on what content is in each zone in order to keep highlights at the same brightness level. HDTVTest measured an average 2.5 uncalibrated with windowed test patterns. Even assuming it was stable at 2.5, this will still crush some shadow detail similar to what people complain about with OLED.

You either need to have the sets calibrated to a common standard or preferably have a reference display on hand to determine which one comes closest to displaying the source content correctly.

Has anyone found some good picture settings for the 65C6? I found some for the E6 on rtings, but it seems like the blues are very blown out of proportion with their settings. I also ran the Disney Wow disc before going into the CMS and adjusting the 20pt calibration.

Question: Do I also have to adjust the 2pt system if I adjusted the 20pt?

If anyone has any good settings they wouldn't mind sharing, I would greatly appreciate it!

You obviously have no experience (or equipment?) calibrating displays. Don't touch White Balance or the CMS. It takes a meter, software, and experience. Set your Contrast at 80 and adjust the Brightness control using a black pluge pattern on your disc. Then turn off everything that looks "auto" and set Sharpness to 0. Seriously, that is all you can do. Everything else is 50/50 improving or degrading your picture.

Sad to say that I don't have much experience with it. I purchased the Disney disc, but was a little disappointed with the amount of information it provides. So it sounds like I should just reset the white balance and CMS to stock and keep the Disney adjustments?

You can get everthing you need at your level with the free AVSHD patterns.

However, if you see some obvious miscolor in the grayscale step pattern you might want to try making White Balance adjustments by eye to correct it. Also, if flesh tones look incorrect, try the CMS Red luminance and saturation adjustments. Experiment.

My opinions are not meaningless at all, because:

* I own both sets and know very well how they both compare. Somehow my owning both displays and you owning neither, qualifies you to claim my comments are 'meaningless' and somehow yours, owning neither, are insightful. Fantastic.

* Anyone actually owning both displays knows how foolish a statement like 'a 940c has a lot of the same issues you find with OLEDs'. That's truly one of the more clueless statements I've seen regarding a comparison of these two different techs. In fact they have their own unique issues that are not shared: viewing angles, near black issues, uniformity, blooming, shadow detail etc. In fact it's not easy finding an issue they do share.

* You cherrypick an outlier review that mentions posterization that no other review does. Even when pointing out the display's negatives, other reviews have not mentioned a greater degree of 940c posterization than other displays. In fact they don't mention it at all. Of course even in the review you cite, you don't call attention to the review's posterization modifiers 'a touch more in select scenes' when comparing it to the Samsung. From that descriptive, I suspect the differences are quite minor, even to that reviewer.

* It must be just a coincidence that both these displays, the OLED and the 940c, have precisely the same amount of posterization in precisely the same areas of the frame with precisely the same content. Couldn't be solely a content issue, could it? And, it's nothing but an unfounded assumption that these displays, if fully calibrated, would show any difference in the area of posterization.

To be honest, since you own neither display, I find your opinions in this post rather meaningless. Are you seriously considering buying an OLED or do you have some other intention here, posting in an owner's thread?

How do you get GotG on Netflix? I can't find it by searching.

You can get everthing you need at your level with the free AVSHD patterns.

However, if you see some obvious miscolor in the grayscale step pattern you might want to try making White Balance adjustments by eye to correct it. Also, if flesh tones look incorrect, try the CMS Red luminance and saturation adjustments. Experiment.
I will try that. Thanks for your help!
