Sometimes switching power supplies can buzz a little, and pretty much everything uses switching power supplies these days because they are efficient. So may just be the power supply.

Many? A handful of AVS owners out of 100k plus who bought one. Sounds like a shipping issue for a few but not many


No OLED screens are 100% straight.

You will have a bend on yours but you might have not noticed it yet...

I have a 65" OLED65B7 TV that I purchased from Costco in May 2017. Lately, I've been having lip sync problems intermittently. I thought at first it was my Direct TV Genie but have come to realize it appears to be my OLED TV (drats). I was so frustrated that yesterday I plugged in my Ethernet cable and updated the software to 4.7.xx thinking that would solve the problem. Today, I'm getting no sound at all at times on Direct TV, my Firestick, and my ROKU. I've been on the phone all morning with LG and he couldn't diagnose it. I'm awaiting them running it up to a higher tech with a return call "maybe" tomorrow or Tuesday, or ???

Anyone else have a similar issue?

You probably tried this:
Turn off Dolby Atmos Sound.
Turn on AV SYN and BYPASS Audio.
Ensure SIMPLI LINK CEC is enabled.

Ok found everything and did as you said. But the problem persists. When I switch from DirecTV to the fire stick or the Roku then I have no sound. I have to turn the TV off and on again to get sound on each device.

I know, thanks It's only doing it when the TV is OFF. It sounds like a clock ticking, mixed with another buzz when the internet connection is ON...

Anyway, I know this is crazy. I used to hear the flyback transformers in old TV's as well. And I come for a Plasma that was hissing and buzzing at me all the time, so no big deal. I'm just curious by nature.

HDR & Lip Sync Issue

I bought a 55" C7 recently and I generally love it. But I have noticed a lip-sync issue and it's bugging me. First, my setup: The TV is hooked up to a Denon S720W receiver; my Tivo and Roku Ultra are connected to the receiver. The lip sync issue is noticeable when I'm watching HDR content on Amazon via the Roku. The audio seems to be slightly behind the action on the screen. I don't notice this issue when watching regular HD content. Any ideas on how to fix this? Thanks.

Usually before credits or after a transition scene where their is dead air between actual footage.

It’s like DV doesn’t know what to do when no image is present and either displays a grey or pure white screen.

also, I have a question about the remote for the C7. What is the stand by power button for?
Just connected equipment?
I just finished binge-watching it yesterday and that definitely happened. Another bug that needs to be fixed then.

New LG OLED B7-55" owner needs help

The documentation is SO bad, even when I look through the online guide, there are too many things not explained well.

1. What is the difference between Wide and Extended? Does one of them have a wider gamut or is it just COLOR intensity? What's best for HDR viewing--"NORMAL"?

2. What's the difference between CLEAR and SMOOTH?

3. If I use the USER SETTINGS instead of CLEAR or SMOOTH, which of DEJUDDER or BLUR creates a soap opera effect?

4. Clear Panel Noise doesn't seem to be an option on my TV as I've read over the last few months prior to purchase. IIRC there is a couple of options for how often it runs (per AVS posts I've read). Mine has different options which seem to be that it will run after shutdown, for an hour, or it can be run immediately. Has the firmware changed recently? I updated mine 2 days ago, which is the day of purchase, but the panel noise feature remained the same after the update. ie, my TV doesn't seem to have options similar to any of the AVS forum posts re Clear Panel Noise. Has it changed since the 2016's?

Red face LG OLED 65" C7 Calibration Rev. 3.5 - FW:05.80.15 12-5-18

LG OLED 65” C7 Calibration ( OLED65C7P ) FW: 05.80.15 - ( CALIBRATION REV. 3.5 - Sept. 2 18 )

HAPPY LABOR DAY!

The settings below are ALL NEW except for HDR10 technicolor Expert.

NOTE: This will probably be my last settings hurrah on this thread due to the fact that our sets are now out of production, and firmware updates from LG will no doubt be prioritized for current models; i.e. 2018 - 8 series. If something comes out that radically changes things, then I will take another look and run new calibrations. Otherwise, I think this is a wrap.

With that said, most 7 series models should benefit from the settings below. This is assuming that your panel’s performance / specs are fairly close to mine. Variances in panels may yield different results. For most of us, it should be very close. If the variance is less than 3%, you will enjoy an awesome SDR and HDR picture.

These are actual meter based calibration settings ( vs. disc based ) using a recently certified ( June 2017 ) Spectracal C6 meter, Murideo 6G pattern generator, and CalMan for Biz 2017.

SDR notes: A few days ago, I ran a calibration recheck to see if my TV’s colors and gray scale had drifted since the January calibration.  There were very few differences - which is good news.  I decided to spend a little more time, and try to get things as close to perfect as possible.  As you will see with the attached Post Calibration screenshot for SDR technicolor Expert, things are almost perfect. On top of that, the adjustments to both the White Balance and CMS are extremely minor and well within single digits from the zero point. The SDR picture on my C7 looks phenomenal.

Dolby Vision notes: This is an ENTIRELY NEW revamp. The problem with the previous DV calibration was that I was allowing the EOTF curve to meander around like a river carving a new path. The delta errors looked good, but the gamma was all over which effected luminance performance especially in the lower and mid luminance ranges where most content lives. The general complaint about the Dolby Vision "Cinema (User)" picture being too dark has been eliminated as the 2.2 gamma target is now flat across all IRE levels. This made a huge difference in the overall brightness of the picture while still providing those spectral highlights that everyone expects with HDR content. Again, I am very pleased with this picture, and it looks much better than the previous revision.

The Calman “DV custom" workflow allows the calibrator to create a special file just for 2017 LG OLED’s, which is saved to a thumb drive and then loaded into the TV. Spectracal, Dolby, and LG worked very closely together to create this awesome workflow. It’s actually faster and easier to go through than an SDR calibration. The DV “custom” workflow focuses on greyscale and once the 2 point and 20 point have been adjusted, Calman then creates the file ( plain text ) and the calibration session is complete. There are no other adjustments, and the CMS is left untouched.

If you are interested in taking a closer look at this file, you should send me a private message with an email address so I can send to you.

For those of you who have already received the previous DV file, I have already sent out a new one with the same settings as listed below.

BASIC SETTINGS:
OLED LIGHT: 85 (Default: 100) This setting will vary depending what nit levels the content was mastered as well as room brightness. There’s not really a way to know the mastered nit levels of any given title without a Lumagen which can read the metadata.

ARC trouble 5.1 DD+

Got my 55" B7A- This TV is insane. Coming from a 2012 panasonic plasma I was wondering if I would notice the jump in black levels and overall PQ but man I am blown away.

As usual though HDMI trips me up
I have a denon 1612 receiver from 2012 and I thought I would stick to my old receiver. I thought I would get audio from LG netflix apps back to my stereo through HDMI ARC.

So here is where I am with that. I set up HDMI ARC as other people have.
Set sound output on tv to optical/HDMI
Set up LG Simplinik to on.

Now here is the issue- 2 channel sound works fine. Anything DD+ 5.1 sounds garbled- Basically just junk. My denon displays its getting dd+ 5.1 but its garbled.
If I switch to PCM on the TV sound output settings I get 2 channel audio.

So currently I am just running audio through optical. This is a less than optimal solution, sound gets downgraded to dolby digital. Also I lose HDMI control and my remote situation is less than ideal.

Any ideas? I tried switching HDMI cables but I dont have any non amazon basics cables from a few years back.

Best wall mount?

Going to be getting a 65C7P and was probably going to get the OTW420B mount for it. Is there a better option out the for a wall mount? Seated position is 10ft, straight on, so don’t really need articulation mount or anything like that. Also, what is the ideal height at that distance? How high should the bottom of the tv be from the floor?

2. What's the difference between CLEAR and SMOOTH? these are just preset settings but they introduce alot of artifacts

3. If I use the USER SETTINGS instead of CLEAR or SMOOTH, which of DEJUDDER or BLUR creates a soap opera effect?

Dejudder will cause the soap opera effect. I personally use Dejudder 2 and Deblur 0 this produces a nice clear image but still have some film like quality to it, doesn't look like a soap opera.

4. Clear Panel Noise doesn't seem to be an option on my TV as I've read over the last few months prior to purchase. IIRC there is a couple of options for how often it runs (per AVS posts I've read).

This i am not sure, sorry

For those who are not familiar with me in the LG OLED threads, I have done something similar in the 2016 Vizio M series thread. To that extent, these are actual meter based calibration settings ( vs. disc based ) using a Spectracal C6 meter, Murideo 6G pattern generator, and CalMan for Biz 2017.

NOTES: This TV was a dream to calibrate. I thought that the Vizio M series ( M70-D3 ) was an accurate and consistent responder until I had the pleasure to work with this set. As with all calibrations, getting the 2 point white balance as close to perfect meant that the 20 point needed no adjustments. ( Screenshots attached if you don’t believe me. )
An almost perfect 2 point white balance and reference white also paved the way for super accurate colors and smooth tracking through each of the color percentage reference points.
You should enjoy superb looking natural flesh tones and a nice color contrast and pop even with SDR content. Black levels are also excellent which one should expect from an OLED. I have read some post where there were complaints regarding grey backgrounds in letterbox images. This should not be an issue with these settings. HDR-10 is spectacular without any of the color or luminance exaggerations.

For those of you who like to try these settings out, I would appreciate feedback - good or bad. Personally, I am loving them. I’m posting this in both the calibration thread ( https://www.avsforum.com/forum/139-di...l#post55037442 ) and the owners thread. If I make any modifications they will be done within the same posts so this will become a living post - so to speak. I will also supply a link in my signature.

Too much CMS adjusting. It's not a road you need to go down.

If you want the Saturation Sweeps and Color Checker to look great what would you do? I have always believed that the fewer adjustments the better. That's why I spend so much time getting the two point perfect for the grey scale and reference white.

The errors were too high for me to stay away from the CMS. There were a couple of problematic colors that I knew would impact flesh tones among other things, and the color checker confirmed that - so I went back and tweaked to get it right.

Any pointers and tips are welcome. Thank you for you feedback!! This is my first OLED, so be gentle. lol

I was so frustrated that yesterday I plugged in my Ethernet cable and updated the software to 4.7.xx thinking that would solve the problem. Today, I'm getting no sound at all at times on Direct TV, my Firestick, and my ROKU. I've been on the phone all morning with LG and he couldn't diagnose it. I'm awaiting them running it up to a higher tech with a return call "maybe" tomorrow or Tuesday, or ???

Anyone else have a similar issue?
Same issues here on the 4.70.06 firmware. i had no issues whatsoever on the previous firmware. After the update, i can't even watch a regular nor a 4k bluray on my xbox one s (that is before and after the fall update, so the fall update didn't cause this), the picture freezes, black screen, sound issues, it's just chaotic. Also in this update i have been having problems with anything connected straight to the TV, from the apple tv 4k to my cable box to the atmos sound being incredibly low from netflix in the internal app... Including lip sync issues, those issues that i never had before the update. I came to the conclusion that the issue is related to sound, anything dolby and dts.
I loved my E7 and was perfect out of the box on 30.60.09, picture, sound, hdr, atmos, everything... now i am not even turning it on, went back to watching on my G6. I have been looking everywhere and trying everything to downgrade with no luck.

Think I read on here somewhere that you can run the "audio test" from the TV menu and that's the only thing that fixes it until you turn the TV off again.

Also try updating the Dolby Access App.

Mine is straight. Not more than half a mm bend anyway. I certainly wouldn't call it bent.

Anyway, I know this is crazy. I used to hear the flyback transformers in old TV's as well. And I come for a Plasma that was hissing and buzzing at me all the time, so no big deal. I'm just curious by nature.
Oh those transformers were noisy. I would go to bed and ask my wife why she had left the TV on, two floors below in the basement.

Hello all what is the last Firmware update # before the latest 4.7? On the USA website it says SW File(Version 03.60.15). If so might go back to it.

The TV won't accept a lower version than you already have installed.

There's a longwinded method I've read about here, but someone else with a US set said that the ATSC firmware wasn't there. I believe the original Russian forum that info came from is here.

Found a way to make the picture gain more defined edges:
Go to the "Recent" menu and if you haven't already done this procedure there should be a "Live TV" icon in there. Press the "Recent" menu in the lower part of it and put the cursor over the "Live TV" icon, wait a few seconds and an "x" should appear allowing you to empty the "Recent" menu. I don't know why but it definitely adds more sharpness t the screen.
If you want to test this again press "Input" and select "Live TV", so this will be added again to the "Recent" menu, this way you can compare these settings and see the increased detail.

Also my settings for PC Input Game mode:
OLED Light 36
Contrast 83
Brightness 50
Color 50
Tint 0
Sharpness 0
Color temp 45
Gamma Medium

I put the extracted file on a scan disc usb drive from the LG site and the TV only gives me an option to run music or video? Do I have to format the drive to download the firmware correctly?
