LG really need to fix the picture mode settings. When you set up the settings you want for isfdark for example, not all are copied and saved for all inputs. You have to manually go in and set for each one. Frustrating.
There are a quite a few repair centre up and down the country that do work on behalf of currys /pc world etc. I will do some digging and find out as I have sold tooling to these places before for repairing the goods.
The seller of LG b6 which is on eBay for £1200 (auction) has come back to me.
They brought it from a sons friend who sells them ex display with 5 year warranty (currys). They are going to get the original receipt and send me photos of it,there are scratches on the stand which I ain't bothered about.
What are everyone's thoughts? If I get the original receipt and transfer the warranty successfully then surely it would be ok?
I have a OLED55 B6 on order with John Lewis, delivery is in a weeks time. I have a question though and was wondering if anyone on this board can answer.
Concerning image retention/screen burn, (I will refer to this as "IR/SB") if I watch a movie in a 2.35:1 aspect ratio, the black bars will not cause IR/SB because those black bars are made up of pixels that are actually off, rather than pixels that are producing a static black image. Am I correct? If so can the same be said of the vertical black bars at the side when watching in an aspect ration of 4:3? Lastly does the John Lewis guarantee cover image retention or screen burn?
Why then does the manual for the TV warn against watching 4:3 aspect ration for an extended time?
I'm find this whole OLED-light vs Contrast (and brightness)-thing very confusing. It looks like it does the same in many ways, even though I know it shouldn't/doesn't.
For example, when calibrating the black level with the use of a THX-disc both raising the OLED-light and raising the brightness make more "black boxes" appear.
Is the difference that OLED-light makes everything brighter while raising brightness (black level) just make details in black better? And what is the relationship between contrast and OLED-light? Lower OLED-light needs a higher contrast setting?
This is what I have found out contrary to what others have said.
OLED light does indeed effect brightness/shadow detail.
To test this set an input at default values for ISF Dark. OLED light 80, Brightness 50, Contrast 85 and gamma 2.2 (BT.1886 and 2.4 are too dark for this test I have found).
Display a black image or use the black bars on a movie.
Make sure this is in the evening and turn off all lights off.
Grab a toilet roll or roll up a piece of card. You want a tube that won't damage the screen to place against it.
Close one eye and look through the tube. Block out any light other than that coming from the black area of the screen. Allow your eye to adjust. Look for any glowing or sparkling pixels. Don't see any? Up the brightness a notch to 51.
On my TV I could just about perceive a very very feint glow. No sparkling pixels, but glowing nonetheless. Many have said their sets start to glow at 52. But this is most likely due to them running the OLED light at a more modest 40-50 range. Now try the same procedure at OLED light 45. You will see it does not glow or get sparklies until 52 or maybe 53 depending on your set.
My conclusion is that OLED light has some small effect on shadow detail which can be raised by bringing the brightness up a notch and then adjusting IRE lumenance a little in the advanced white balance settings.
I had wondered why the set came from the factory set at OLED light 80 and brightness 50 and this seems to be why. By setting the OLED light lower you are crushing shadow detail and it becomes a bit harder to compensate using brightness and lumenance settings. At the default 80, gamma 2.2 and raising lumenance a little I find shadow detail to be excellent and really punchy. But it does strain the eyes a little at night.
As always. YMMV
Hi guys..recently bought the 55b6v, and overall i'm quite happy with it!
I have one major issue with the connection between tv and magic remote...when i have just used the remote after about 5-10min the response time is approx 10-30sek from pushing a button on the remote till the tv reacts! anybody els with this problem, and does anybody have a fix for this..?
I had the remote switched with a new one, same problem!
Same resoult with Simplink turned on and off!
Really hope someone can help me
Personally I'd be extremely cautious about spending such a large amount of money on eBay for something like this.
Normally if the price sounds too good to be true it's because it is.
