Water is bad for leaving streaks.

I use lcd/screen spray or a vinegar-based window cleaner onto the dry cloth NOT the screen.

I use a dry new / clean micro fiber cloth without any liquid.

Basically you don't want too much of that buld up or the dust particles might be what scratches the screen (depending on the dust you have floating around).

If you are not touching your screen you shouldn't be seeing streaks you would need liquid to get rid of. (also don't sneeze towards the TV.... )

I really don't want to use a dry cloth. This tv wasn't covered while I did some work to the room so it got pretty dusty.

That's what I'm afraid of at this point...I don't want to cause any scratches so I feel using a liquid will be the best option.

Reading through a lot of basic calibration recommendations, and through my own general knowledge, it always says to turn sharpness down on standard but there's no mention at all whether the sharpness should also likewise be turned down when in HDR/Dolby Vision mode. Most guides usually state to keep the setting as is, minus one or two things. Should I also turn down the sharpness on these modes or keep them as they're set?

0 or 10, doesn't seem to make any difference with 2160 input.

I'm thinking 1-10 settings might only kick in for other resolution inputs to add some sharpness filters to the scaler.

My calibrator set both my oleds at 10 with edge enhancement off. On mine sharpness doesn’t do anything unless e.e. Is on but that may be different with the Cx oleds.

Default OLED :: cleaning the display

LG (recommendation)
  • LG (technical support) :: when i called, the 'LG' recommendation was to simply use a 'dry microfiber cloth' - which surprised me, but i 'did so' with specular results
  • my experience prior to my contact with technical support - having already tried many different 'wet cleaning attempts' - was both confusing and concerning
  • 'each' - wet cleaning - 'always' left a fog/haze - which was confusing, as typically 'each wet cleaning' worked well in the past
  • what was 'confusing & concerning' was that cleaning my first OLED - it did not work - 'at all'
  • i cleaned with the dry microfiber cloth - 'as LG technical support' recommended (worked perfectly - with - a pristine glass shine) - making me quite 'happy - finally'
  • my timeline :: 'my lesson in cleaning an OLED screen' was over threes time (beginning - to - end)
  • my recommendation :: clean carefully (wet cleaning & drying - as usual) & 'follow up' with a careful (dry cleaning - with a new microfiber cloth)
  • note :: i purchhased an quality microfiber cloth that i only use on the display (just being extra careful)
  • i sincerely hope this information is helpful ::

Based on my C9, Sharpness 1-10 applies anti-aliasing (not sharpening) to anything the LG is upscaling to 2160. Edge enhancement begins at 11.

I got my 77 in. CX delivered today! Upgrading from a 65 in. B6 that I've had for around four years now.

Hey is there like a flawless OLED display out there? For me there always seems to be 'something' that effects the display.. my current LG OLED has that same shuddering issue with slower panning/tracking shots that I can't get rid of .. has anyone bought a tv and out of the box it's just 'perfect' for Blu-Ray and 4K display?

B9 owner here and I just set my PS5 into PC Mode and noticed that Real Cinema is now grayed out. I have the Sony UBP-X800M2 but given you have to toggle Dolby Vision on and off, I was going to just use it for Dolby Vision titles and the PS5 for HDR and regular blu-rays. I get that PC Mode disables all enhancements such as Real Cinema but I feel like the setting is necessary when it comes to blu-rays and ultra-hds. Would I be better off to just keep using the UBP-X800M2, toggling Dolby Vision on and off for all my physical movies, or would the difference between Real Cinema being on and off, be nominal enough that the PS5 should still be fine for non-Dolby Vision content?

I've had no display issues with my B6 in the four years I've owned it. And so far so good on my CX. It's not "flawless" out of the box as I've had to adjust settings to my liking, but I've had no quality issues.

i have a c6 which has the same panning issues mentioned in what you quoted. what settings have you used to alleviate that?

I never noticed any panning issues with my B6, either when I first purchased it or anytime after. If it was there I couldn't tell you what setting I changed to alleviate it. My CX has no panning issues either.

Are you running the filmmaker mode, by any chance? That is intentionally running at a lower fps and I've noticed a little of that effect you're talking about on long slow panning shots. If you put it on standard, for instance, it will look a lot smoother.

It's the rapid pixel response rate rather than a flaw, it's there on every OLED any any other screen tech with as fast a response but some users are very sensitive to it. It was disguised in other screen tech because of the slower response rate blurring the motion slightly.

Cinema projection shows each frame twice to alleviate the judder effect.

I'm not that sensitive to it on my B8, but I find it more noticeable on bright outdoor pans when it starts to annoy. The black frame insertion setting, "Motion Pro", is supposed to do something similar to cinema projection, but LG have made a hash of it in pre-2020 models making it, IMHO, unusable.

The CX-series introduces a very good black frame insertion setting to tackle this by all accounts I've read, much superior to the rather poor implementation in earlier models.

How have people's C9's handled Dolby Vision so far? I've been watching a few pieces of content in DV both on disc and on streaming, and there seems to be an odd greyness that appears over the screen sometimes. For example, there's a constant ugly grey that appears on The Queen's Gambit, particularly the shot of the title which I am to assume is supposed to be fully black where its just this sheet of grey. I assumed that it might be down to compression on streaming that this happens, but I'm unsure to say the least. This isn't as prevalent an issue with some of my 4K discs, but it does crop up once and a while. I just hope its not an issue specifically with the panel.

EDIT: welp, nevermind... I just looked again and the random grey seems to have disappeared, just the usual mid-range blacks that's expected with streaming. Huzzah?

What setting on my TV would be causing blurriness around moving objects? For example, while watching 1917, everything in the background is crystal clear, the characters as well, but there's almost an outline of blurriness around the characters as they move across the screen. If they stop moving, it goes away. It only appears around moving objects..

Could be that aforementioned judder, but sounds like TruMotion could be turned on as well as LG's motion estimation is pants and does that around moving objects.

I only notice it for DV and HDR content. I'll double check, but I'm pretty sure I have the TruMotion turned off.
