I got it this morning. Called LG and they had only just had the emails about it. They had a few people calling at the same time and had no idea how to action it and said it should just be part of your warranty but someone would call me back to confirm. There’s nothing on the UK site about it.

agree same here. mine is nothing like the OP's. Looks like a quality control issue on his.
I will try and make a different picture and the last one I have posted I think makes it looks worse than it actually is. I am no concerned about the looks. More like I am worried about the integrity of the TV, as I will be moving in a month.

I just turned my tv on and this pop up appeared, LG seems to be giving us 5 years coverage but I would be shocked if burn in is covered.

Link to warranty details, I see nothing about burn-in not being covered. https://www.lg.com/us/PDF/US_Final_warranty_card_210506-G1.pdfView attachment 1526228View attachment 1526230

You know what, I'm going out on a limb, saying burn in is covered! LG have been replacing screens affected, out of warranty, it's not something they'd mention, as they still want people to be careful.

Hi eveyone. Do you all have your Gamma set at 2.2 or BT 1886?

I like how inky black things look at BT 1886 but 2.2 is brighter. I'm honestly torn. What setting do u have it at?

Also my 65" LG G1 arrived today. Yay! 😊

Is there an obvious or not so obvious method of getting a 5mm gap between the G1 and my wall but still using the supplied bracket? Solid brick wall btw.
I know it sounds madness, "get a C1" but I'm sure I could live with a 5mm gap and it should allow all intended cabling to fit between tv and wall for right sided exit of all cables, which would make life a hell of a lot simpler and neater in my situation than trunking exiting from the bottom of the tv.

Makes the G almost the defacto choice for high end.
But why ?
Just about every shop online already offers a 5 year warranty or even 6 year warranty already, for any tv?
I don't get the excitement :rotfl:

Yea but not for "burn in" on oleds.
Thats why G1 is actually only oled i would buy....if LG belive in it than there is something new with that panel.

Some serious wrong information about this floating about.. and a lot of people are going to get "burnt" one day by it.
no where at all does lg mention this covers "burn in", the only insurance that specify it covers burn in available in the uk is from John Lewis.

As usual things could be spelt out clearer, but the follow up statement by LG says it covers burn in (static images) if not caused by professional use.

Don't forget LG have been replacing burnt panels out of warranty, hell even C1 owners will likely be ok.

I haven't seen the follow up statement from LG that say they cover burn in from static images, do you have a link please?

Im not caring about burn in myself, have been gaming on a c9 for 2 years with not a hint of burn in.

Me too, but regardless it's a nice sweetener for any owner, or potential one.

Yeah.. it still doesn't say it covers burn in lol.
like I said before,it will be a case of what person you get on the phone that day and are they in a good mood.
If LG cover burn in for home usage they should specifically say that, I'm sure it would be a good selling point for them so why wouldn't they spell it out.

It does say static images which is burn in, but as I said they are pretty generous with panel swaps as it is, so G owners won't have a problem.

I agree. Unless its in black and white saying burn in is covered then I don't trust it. Hate how they hide behind "normal usage". Who gets to decide what normal usage is 🤷‍♂️

Here in the US we only get 1 year limited warranty, 5 years is rare for us.
Yep great for you folks over in the USA, nothing new for us here.
From what I seen you still have to pay for labor charges though o_O

Ya, I bought a Best Buy warranty. Covers everything basically, they typically junk the TV out since panels aren’t around after 3 years. They junked out my Sony A1E because the panel timer went out and just gave me all of my money back and said to recycle the TV.
