Volume Up Stuck

Has anyone experienced the volume stuck on up? I did a reset, disconnected the power cord and all HDMI connections but it didn't resolve the problem. It keeps on turning up.

Is a button stuck on a remote somewhere? Has a remote perhaps fallen between couch cushions?

It turns out there is some kind of interference controlling the volume. If I block the remote sensor it fixes the problem. I have no idea what's causing the interference. I unplugged my Logitech remote IR blaster and removed the batteries from all my remotes but something is still controlling my tv. I also notice my Logitech remote isn't very responsive.

Did you do the same for the LG remote that came with the TV? Remember, it is RF, not IR.

Do you have other IR devices? An Android phone with an IR blaster perhaps?
Just the AVR, 2 TV, desktop PC, Logitech 900, Android. I shut off the phone.

Yes. I took the batteries out of every remote and unpluged the Logitech IR blaster to eliminate the causes but the problem is still there. It just started yesterday when I turned on the TV. Something unrelated to the remotes is causing the interference.

At this point, Spock would say: "Once you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth".
I think the problem lies with TV (or at least the Main board that contains the IR/RF modules).

Spock said that? He's up on his Sherlock Holmes.

True but my Logitech remote isn't very responsive to any devices either. It all started at the same time.

It seems the problem is the Xfinity cable box. I unplugged it and restarted it and the tv volume problem disappeared. My Logitech 900 remote works better but it's not 100%.

LG EF9500 for Parts

Anyone know where I can sell my EF9500 for parts? My son threw a hot wheel which hit the screen and cracked it. The local TV repair shop said it would be too expensive to replace the panel. Seems like a waste to just throw it away.

Define "too expensive."

Since there are replacement panels out there, and this was one of the last OLEDs with 3D capability, I suspect that it might fetch a premium even if you decide to sell it for parts.

They would be correct: you could buy entire TVs now for what these panels cost (if you could even find one). However, I suspect you would find a market for the "Main" board in this thread (and LG community); it was initially a high-failure rate item.

You could, but if someone wants an OLED that can do 3D, suddenly the TV is much more valuable.

Just pulled the trigger on a 77” C9, what would be a good price to try to get for my 65ef9500 with a little more than 8k hours on it?
What a coincidence! Those are the two OLED TVs that I have bought in the past. I still own the 65EF9500 as well. I use it for watching 3D content. Don't know how much it would be to sell but I'm guessing, not much.

Bought it for 4k in early ‘16, I think I’ll keep it unless I get at least $800-1000. I pretty much only use the living room where my pc is hooked up though. Did you see a noticeable difference going from the ef9500 to the C9?

Oh yes, the C9 is much brighter in my opinion. I've been enjoying it for almost a year now.

You might as well keep it. I have the 9500 and E6. And the E6 is also significantly brighter than the EF9500. The Ef9500 barely hits 540 nits, the minimum for HDR. I would say you would be lucky to get $400 or $500 for the tv. Even though it has 3D, it is poor with HDR, and gamers would probably not want to spend much on a 5 year old tv as it came out in 2015. The EF9500 was good when it came out, but compared to current OLEDs, it's pretty poor.
