It's always like that. That way if there are issues with it, they can control how many sets are affected. Once they see it's ok, it goes to a wider audience and then the website

LG OLED65C8PUA - Replacement Power Cord

Hello all,

I recently purchased my first OLED TV and am loving it. However, I have never seen a power cord on a TV like the one on this LG OLED65C8PUA. The power cord is too short and I need drop it down my wall shoot and pop it back out to plug it into the outlet. This has not been a problem with previous TV's as I've just been able to purchase a longer power cord (2-prong) via Amazon, Monoprice, etc. However, these LG OLED TVs have a small panel with a single screw you remove to expose a white (Molex type) box connector. I have not been able to find any pre-made power cords for sale online that use this type of connector. I really don't want to modify the existing power cord or make my own, and I'm not super excited about running a good extension cord through the wall. I'm really looking for the cleanest solution here. Additionally, installing a clock-box style power outlet behind the TV isn't really and option for me as I don't want to cut another hole in the wall. Does anybody know of a place that sells power cords for these OLED TVs in longer lengths that are pre-fab? Thanks for any insight anybody can provide.

I didn't install the 04.10.31 firmware update that popped up on Thursday (3/14), now it's showing as no updates available. Oh well. Still planning on holding out until I see others report back on it.

I've been generally really enjoying my first OLED, a 65C8, purchased around New Years. I do experience one significant problem - a/v sync - but this is not the traditional problem nor is it consistent:

- system consists of Oppo BDP-93, Nvidia Shield, and DirecTV box going through Denon 4810 receiver (yes, I still have a 1080p chain, upgrades are coming)
- internal TV speakers and internal apps are not used, TV is only a monitor
- the Denon only has automatic a/v syncing with no manual timing adjustment available
- a/v sync on blu-rays played through BDP-93 is perfect, with Denon automatic a/v syncing turned on
- a/v sync seems to be great/perfect playing ripped movies or games through Nvidia Shield with Denon autmatic a/v syncing turned on
- HOWEVER, a/v sync drifts while watching DirecTV or Amazon Video through the Nvidia Shield with the Denon automatic a/v syncing turned on. It can be perfect for half a show, and then start randomly drifting. Video is
ALWAYS behind the audio.
- I turned off the Denon automatic syncing, and now DirecTV appears to be more consistent, however, video is always slightly behind audio.
- With Denon automatic syncing off, I can manually adjust the a/v sync on the Shield -- however, different apps within the Shield appear to have slightly different timings.
- Never saw any syncing issues with a previous 1080i RPTV or 720p LCD and this exact same signal chain.

Other than getting a more modern receiver (in the upgrade plan for later in 2019), is there any suggestions to fix this? Has anyone else experienced this exact type of problem?

So you have all your devices plugged into the Denon receiver? Might be worth trying plugging them into the TV directly to see if the problem still exists. The shield allows 4k so I'd certainly recommend not having any 4k capable device plugged into your receiver since your receiver will only output 1080p. Try it out and let us know the results unless I read your post wrong and you have them plugged into the TV already.

What exactly is the menu item you changed called? Update server doesn't exist as an item on my E8, nor does anything called engineering mode.

EDIT: Nevermind. It's under System 2 > NSU

Just thought I'd chime in to say I will be a proud owner of my first OLED on Thursday. I purchased the C8 77" at Best Buy today at a very good price, along with a 5-year warranty at a reduced price. Needless to say, I am quite excited!

For the last 10 years I had a Pioneer Elite PRO-151 plasma and a Sony 940D LCD/LED. I bought the Sony in June of 2016 and four days ago I was watching a UHD Blu-ray and a vertical red line appeared on the left-hand side of the screen. I did a factory reset to no avail. I then called Sony and they gave me the number to the nearest Authorized Sony Repair Center...they told me the panel was shot and not worth repairing (since I had no extended warranty). I then started shopping and was elated to see how much an LG OLED 77" had gone down since I was shopping for OLEDs in 2016 (I had wanted the LG 77G then but there was no way I would be shelling out nearly 20K for a tv). So, I will finally have the OLED I've always wanted ever since I decided to replace my Pioneer Elite PRO with a bigger display. I can't wait for PERFECT BLACKS (and no clouding/blooming), Dolby Vision, and excellent HDR performance.

If it was me, I'd buy an LG cable: https://lg.encompass.com/item/11060390/LG/EAD64026802/ and lengthen it. Crimp connectors, wire nuts, or solder and heat shrink tubing.

Not pretty, but no one would see it, and it would allow you to retain the original cable.

Just a heads up for anybody wishing to try the engineering mode to get the newest firmware. Thanks to JK, for reminding me, lol. I totally forgot about that!

I scoured the menus for every input, every setting, and tested them all. There are no added or removed entrees at all and the update will not ruin calibrations! I can't tell if the firmware will fix the issues this was made for, as I never have had those to start{knock on wood}.

How does someone turn this on? Do I need a service remote or a phone with IR? I tried finding a store locally with a service remote yesterday and had no luck. Amazon has service remotes I can get one for Tuesday I might do that. I would also like to try changing when the tv does comp cycles to reduce banding.

Hello

I just ordered a 65" C8, it will be here on Thursday. I wanted to get the LG slim wall mount but don't see anything for the 2018 model. Did LG actually make one or does one for the older models work ?

Once mounted, are there setting that should be adjusted out of the box ?

it's my first OLED.

My father liked my OLED65C so much that he picked one up for himself. I shared these settings with him in the format below to help guide him through each input (etc.). Obviously your panel may vary but these settings are likely good for a new panel out of the box and are based on the RTINGS.com settings for the most part. The only thing I'd really urge you to adjust to taste initially are the motion-related settings since people vary widely on what bothers them (motion blur, flickering, "soap opera effect" etc.).

I tried to format the below so that it flows much like the actual menu system of the TV itself.

Obviously, everyone's mileage may vary and if anyone takes issue with any setting/preference above I wholeheartedly endorse such criticizm. This is just what worked for me (and a few others/websites upon which I based these settings).

Code:
For each input/device, set up the following modes for each content type:

SDR (standard dynamic range) = "ISF Expert (Bright Room)" and "ISF Expert (Dark Room)"
HDR (high dynamic range) = "Technicolor Expert"
Dobly Vision (Dolby's HDR) = "Cinema Home (user)"

If your device won't output HDR or Dolby Vision, you will only need to set up two picture modes (ISF Expert Bright and Dark).

Procedure, menu structure, and settings follow. . .

-----------------------------------------

First, select the HDMI input for the device.
Then, playback SDR, HDR, or Dolby Vision content so that the TV will offer the appropriate Picture Modes (not all modes are available for all media types)


----WHILE PLAYING BACK SDR (STANDARD DYNAMIC RANGE) MEDIA-----

The only thing I'd really urge you to adjust to taste initially are the motion-related settings since people vary widely on what bothers them (motion blur, flickering, "soap opera effect" etc.).

I tried to format the below so that it flows much like the actual menu system of the TV itself.

Obviously, everyone's mileage may vary and if anyone takes issue with any setting/preference above I wholeheartedly endorse such criticizm. This is just what worked for me (and a few others/websites upon which I based these settings).

Code:
For each input/device, set up the following modes for each content type:

SDR (standard dynamic range) = "ISF Expert (Bright Room)" and "ISF Expert (Dark Room)"
HDR (high dynamic range) = "Technicolor Expert"
Dobly Vision (Dolby's HDR) = "Cinema Home (user)"

If your device won't output HDR or Dolby Vision, you will only need to set up two picture modes (ISF Expert Bright and Dark).

Procedure, menu structure, and settings follow. . .

-----------------------------------------

First, select the HDMI input for the device.
Then, playback SDR, HDR, or Dolby Vision content so that the TV will offer the appropriate Picture Modes (not all modes are available for all media types)

Repeat the above for each HDMI input and/or device, and the built-in "smart tv" functionality.

Wrong.

It should be BT1886 , not gamma 2.2

Personally I didn’t like the look of BT1886, so I use 2.2 and suspect there are many like me. To say it’s wrong is just wrong as we all have different preferances and that other thing called panel variance.

There is no perfect display, quit looking for faults and enjoy

Fair enough. Feel free to take it up with RTings. If it's good enough for them, it's good enough for me. To each their own.

There is a lot of differing opinion on gamma no one answer, this has been going on since the plasma days, I use a power 2.3 for my night mode but it’s really subjective . I agree with poster above the bt1886 can look a little contrasty and unnatural .

On an OLED panel that can do perfect black, BT.1886 is exactly the same curve as gamma 2.4.
On an LCD that can't do black, BT.1886 is a slightly different curve, but more or less the same as gamma 2.4.
These are both for "dark room" viewing. You should think of BT.1886 as equivalent to gamma 2.4 in what it aims to get out of the display and how quickly it "comes out of black".

Completely different scenario: gamma 2.2 on the other hand is used for "bright room" viewing - lower number of gamma curve means it "comes out of black" more rapidly so that you can see the very dark shadow details in the bright room conditions.

And yes some people prefer the look of 2.2, even if they can see everything with it set to 2.4. Or 2.3. Some nutters even use 1.9

I ordered a service remote today. Can anyone give me some tips on what setting I have to change to get 03.10.31? I’m going to be looking online on how to navigate the service menu.
