Somebody should probably tell Netfix then. :)


Yeah, just noticed that (it was not that way before). I’m guessing someone goofed and out the wrong tag on it. Outside movies usually don’t get HDR of any flavor on NetFlix (originals can and do). Personally I don’t watch movies like that on NetFlix so no big deal to me. Hopefully someone does reach out to CS so it can stop confusing folks.

Does anyone use the Chromecast idle on this display? I'm guessing it's a bad idea but curious as to what others have seen. I love the beauty of the images and the clock and weather info but was wondering if it would be really bad for the OLED.

It does age your TV, so there is that. If left unattended and it freezes you could get persistent IR. Personally if I am not using the TV I have it off.

I really don't understand why they don't get 4K DV copies of outside films though, especially when you have to pay more to access that narrow 4K library they have. Amazon has done much better, with a lot of recent films, notably the A24 catalog being in 4KHDR. The compression on both of them are nowhere near as good as iTunes rentals, but it's still nice to have the option to stream something in a higher bandwidth, higher res, HDR version. I guess it's better than Hulu who is spending the time an money to master shows in 4K HDR without any way to display them. After around a year of getting this set and jumping into 4K HDR, I feel like the biggest issue isn't that content doesn't exist, but that it's still not readily available even when the gear and infrastructure is there.

I’m guessing contract and content holders don’t want to give them the rights (IMO). NetFlix is focusing on “original content” so the remainder is “just there”. I think long term their plan works better since they own the rights instead of paying higher and higher amounts for content they don’t own.

NetFlix easily trumps Amazon however as far as HDR content goes. If Amazons interface were better I wouldn’t mind it so much, but finding the movies (ones that are from outside studios) is a PIA. I’m happy that they are adding more, but IMO I still prefer NetFlix. Hulu just boggles my mind. They had it, then removed it and now don’t release anything in it. I’d love to watch Handmaids Tale in DV since it was mastered that way. Unfortunately Hulu dropped the ball and there are no announcements that they’ll be offering it soon (Id subscribe for month or two at least to watch the couple of shows I’m interested in if they had it).

For short periods of time why not, continual, not sure about that.......

I assume if you bought from VE you used a credit card. If so you likely got an extra year of warranty coverage, that feature is pretty much a given with any credit card.

@JTMav, we hate to hear about the image retention on your OLED TV. Even though this does affect a small percentage of OLED users, LG is working with customers to see what can be done to address the situation. For further assistance please check out the following link: oled.lgsupport.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

So I am curious if others have had any out of warranty experience with LG. I have a C7 that I bought June of 2017. Now my previous set was a Pioneer Elite which I had for 10 years. Having owned a plasma I was always sensitive to Image Retention or burn in which I never had with my Pioneer. I don’t game and actually am a cord cutter so my viewing is either OTA or streaming. I don’t watch any type of programming that would have banners and such nor is the set on for long, long stretches. Unfortunately this OLED panel is showing some burn in. I bought the set from Robert at Value Electronics and he has suggested some programming to remediate the issue, pixel refresh and some YouTube videos to run overnight, which I have done. Unfortunately the burn in is not fading. I am waiting a call from LG after loqging a complaint. Since the warranty has expired I wondered if anyone here has had any luck getting them to fix, or really in this instance, replace the panel even though the warranty has expired. Very disappointed since I really have just used the set for normal viewing. Thanks in advance for any help.

Just stop the bollocks of a small percentage of users. This tech is kinda new and before not many people had the money to buy an OLED television. You will see an increase of numbers rapidly now some OLED's are passing the 1-2 years of using. The burn-in topics on a couple of forums across the world are showing an increase of people who do have those problems. Even with ''normall'' uses (which is a **** description because you should use your television for what it is made for, watching television on without the worrying that your 2K TV is going to be worthless just because of that) burn-in will happen. I got my screen replaced for free on the C7 so i'm not bothered anymore with this BI crap. It would last 1-2 years now. And within 2 years I'm going to replace OLED for either a good mini led tv or FALD (since Micro-leds will still be to expensive). No more OLEDS for me.

Bollocks - really? Okay if you say so :rolleyes:
Burn-in is an unfortunate thing that has happened to a small percentage of owners. This group, rightfully so, tends to be very vocal - thank you for helping me make my point. It is always easy to confuse image retention with burn-in. Despite what you and few others would like us to think, it is not an epidemic. If the LG account is real (doubtful), its great they are on AVS. Let's spend our time getting them to work on uniformity - please.

You are the one who is confused about the differences between image retention with burn-in. Obviously, otherwise you wouldn't said such meaningless statements. Do you really think LG would pay for a screen replacement if it was just image rentention. No point in discussing this matter, with someone that doesn't seems to see the differences between those two.

Burn-in is an unfortunate possible side effect of OLED tech. I and many others bought this TV knowing this. The amazing picture quality is worth it.

BTW your C7 should last you way longer than 1 or 2 years. I’ve had my C7 over a year and still zero burn-in. I don’t babysit it either. I use it for everything.

I am the OP about burn in and the link is legit, although it linked me to the appliance division but is getting straightened out. I have updated my case using the link and will keep anyone interested in the final outcome. The link allowed me to upload some photos of the burn in, and yes I am aware of the difference between IR and burn in. I will keep anyone who is interested in the outcome.
Best,
JTMav

I sent a message to LG using that link, and here's what I got in return: "I am sure that we can take a look into your case and help you find a solution. Unfortunately, the link that you clicked on brought you to the home appliance department and not the home electronics department. The easiest way to reach the right department is to go online to Facebook https://www.facebook.com/LGUSSupport , Twitter @LGUSSupport or https://oled.lgsupport.com/hc/en-us/requests/new."


It's the same link!

Yes the appliance dept forwarded my case and form to electronics as well as the Zendesk group. I went to the Facebook page and accessed the Zendesk group (for people who don’t want to use social media) and was given a Zendesk case #. Supposedly I am to hear from someone in the next 24 to 48hrs. I’ll let you know.

I'm looking to get some advice as to what to do with my panel. I've had my B7A for about 15 months, and am therefore out of my factory warranty period. A while back I noticed that my screen seemed to be split in half down the middle, with the left side a lighter shade than the right. I've tried factory resetting the panel more than once and ran the pixel refresher twice, but the issue won't go away. It isn't as bad as some I've seen with this problem, but it is driving me crazy that I have this on a TV that I spent so much on.

I've read that others with this issue have had their panel replaced by LG, but they were still under warranty. I didn't use a credit card to purchase the set, so I don't have any protection on that front. I did purchase a Square Trade extended warranty from Costco, but reading the conditions they don't seem to cover display uniformity issues. Does anyone here have any experience with making a claim with ST for anything similar? This isn't burn in, but I'm not sure if they would consider this an actionable defect.

Is it still worth contacting LG to see if they will fix it? I'm guessing I will have to pay since I'm out of warranty, but a panel replacement seems like it would cost a significant portion of buying a new TV.

I've attached some photos I took of my panel.

Thanks in advance!!

That's exactly what my screen looked like after owning it 6 mos. LG replaced my panel last Friday to be exact. The repairman said he is seeing a lot of them with the exact same problems and said it is a manufacturing defect that LG is aware of. That sounds like a class action lawsuit. I've chatted with other folks on this forum who said their problems started after the 2000 hr. mark but mine didn't have half of those hours and it took several months of talking with LG to get them to do anything. I sent them pictures back in the fall of last year and they kept saying they would get back to me and never did and I finally got to speak with somebody here in the states who took care of me. The new panel looks great but not as bright and the colors don't seem to pop as much as the old but the old one improved in those two areas over time. I wish you luck! This is not a uniformity problem and squaretrade should take care of it but you may have to jump through hoops with them too and don't take no for an answer because they will try to do you wrong. I
have a history of dealing with them too!

Yikes - as someone who had burn-in on a plasma I know the difference not my first emissive display, but in typical fashion you saw red (burn-in) and comprehention went out the window. No doubt it’s real, but there are other owners who have trouble distinguishing between the retention or burn-in - the later takes time to achieve. Nice work around on just how big this issue isn’t - but as was done last year since this thread was clogged up with a few owners posting repeatedly about their burn-in (again unfortunate and not dismissing) there are threads for this topic so take it there so we can get back to discussing the displays. We all know the in and outs of what to watch with our displays, they are emissive, but the Rtings test results speak for themselves - it takes time and repetition before burn-in can be an issue. Not a reason to skip buying the best display tech currently available unless you watch CNN like content too much for anyone’s own good.

I don't know if that link provided by new member "LG Electronics" is legit or not. Does it redirect you to the LG support site at a domain ending in "lg.com?"


Even if a link redirects you to the official website, doesn't mean that the site redirecting you is owned or authorized by LG. A redirecting site may silently load malicious code in your browser that later spies on your entries on the official site.


Again, I have no idea if it's legit or not. You're safer just going to the official site here: https://www.lg.com/us/support

This is so not true, it’s a real misperception if you think oled burn-ins are only possible to get with repetitive activity’s. that’s false. You could watch something different the whole week and still burn-ins could happen. Also plasma and oled are two different techniques with different causes. The burn-ins on plasmas are different compared to oled.

Everything wears, entropy affects everything. You likely know that no matter how high quality you think your car brand is it will not survive anywhere near the warranty period if you race it on a track 8 hours a day, every day, or just drop a brick on the accelerator pedal and let the engine rev overnight, every night. There will always be the rare case where design and manufacturing tolerances line up such that a non-abused engine fails prematurely at 70,000 miles instead of 150,000 miles, and that's why there are warranties. How long would you stay away from your home with the oven and stove set on their highest setting? (I'm over 4500 hours/2+ years with no noticeable PIR)

Instead of being divisive regardless of which side one is one here we should all be signing petitions to have logos and those damn new show advertisements removed. We're headed for "Idiocracy" TV screens and no one wins with that: http://cdn.soundandvision.com/files/_images/200902/2172009173627.jpg
