I see common logo burn in and normal flaws such as banding discussed, but imagine a green blob on your 1 year old 77" $5K TV set. You should strongly consider a warranty. Larger sizes will be going LCD for a while, especially when the Vizio PX 85" may well be close to OLED quality at a fraction of the cost, yet much brighter. Here is a common recent thread from CNET-
What is the problem with LG OLED TV?
by mike_21388_2006 | March 1, 2019 12:04 PM PST
We recently started to notice on our LG OLED55B6P that the color yellow in the middle of the screen shows up as highlighter green. As it moves to the edges the color is yellow as it should but green in the middle. Today on certain color backgrounds there are black squiggly lines that appear in the middle. When I pull up a blank yellow/orange/blue screen you can clearly see that the TV is normal in the corners and is off color in the middle with black portions all through out the middle of the TV. Is this screen burn or a different issue?
That's not good.

Make the call and hope it's in warranty. Let the tech diagnose it but to me it sounds like a panel issue.

My lg oled is 13 months old and has a green mist down the middle of the screen it's a common problem of you look on forum sights lg said it was out of one year warranty so couldn't do anything about it we need to start making a noise about this fault then maybe they will repair them
And a good reason to get longer warranties.

As to noise, maybe some Social Media campaign. You first?
Green Screen Haze or Tint in Center 2/3rds of TV
by igrantjr | September 4, 2019 7:24 PM PDT
My LG OLED TV developed a green screen haze in the center of the TV which covers 2/3 of the screen from the center out. The TV is a little over 18 months old. Looking for a solution if anyone can provide any assistance.
Post in more places.

Try Rtings and AVS Forum too.

Another way to extend a product warranty is to purchase using an American Express card. Their terms on this will be changing somewhat in 2020, but should still generally apply to go past the standard 1 yr manufacturer warranty.

I haven't checked Costco's policies this year. Bueller?
They modified it a little

Still, it is pretty good, especially if someone were to utilize their credit card too. See here:
Thanks for this.

My LG OLED55C7V has just developed the dreaded green shadow. We bought it 2 years ago at Curry’s. I going through my emails as I remember premium TVs having 5 year guarantees but can’t find a single detail on my specific guarantee Sad
Search Wayback Machine for proof of guarantee

I had the same issue with LG - OLED55C6V . Try using wayback machine, search Currys website around the date you purchased your tv. Then send an email to Currys customer service along with any links you find along with your receipt.

Does LG take responsibility for this problem?
LG repair process
by cfischer1982 | December 26, 2019 6:54 AM PST
The same green blob issue happened to me in Jan. 2019. I called and had to send proof of purchase and pictures of the problem. I was informed a repair man was going to diagnose it from my local area. I was contacted and had someone come out about two weeks later who advised I needed a new panel. I was given the run around by the repair shop and LG for about a month and a half. I was told by the repair shop that LG is notoriously difficult to work with and the panel was on order. I contacted LG and they gave me a different repair company this time. I called them and sent them a picture of the issue and told them that someone all ready came out to look at it and was told I needed a new panel. They agreed by looking at the pictures and ordered the panel. I finally got the new panel installed on the old backing of the TV in May. This fixed the problem until now. It is December and the same issue is happening in the same exact spots as before. I just contacted LG and they told me they will have an OLED specialist contact me in 3-5 days. This is seriously frustating considering the TV was $3k. The new panel is only 7 months of light usage. Hopefully LG will stand behind there product again.
