Question

What is the problem with LG OLED TV?

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.

The Problem with OLED TV?

Simply, the two B's. Burn-In but hugely "BRIGHTNESS". Way too dim for my eyes. This will be solved with MicroLED. Then OLED will go the way of Plasma, It was too difficult and costly to go 4K with Plasma, which also had a problem with brightness and heat (power consumption). Both had high cost. I see the plasmas at electronic recycling events at my nearby shopping center. I imagine I'll see burnt-out OLEDS there in a few years. All the advantages of OLED kind of disappear with the dim picture. I'll take QLED or Sony's best LED anytime.

Does not address the specific question posed.

The question seeks an opinion about a problem with his OLED TV, not an opinion of OLED in general.

Let's let this stand.

Please add your opinion of the OP's question so the OP has more to think about.

Do Sony tvs ever get Burn in on the screen? Is there a way to avoid that issue with other tv brands? I read on another website that there is a way of removing Burn in. Not sure if it works. Here is the website:

Green screen

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

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.

Agreed

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.

YMMV

#MeToo :(

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.
