Most modern games are made to conform with a D65 white point. And even old games look good on a reference display. The only thing that might have to be adjusted on a game-to-game basis is brightness, and you can do that from the game itself without touching the TV settings.

Excited to add Dolby Vision and all the benefits four generations of development in between my 2017 set and now will offer...but mostly of course excited about the bump in size. We are still enjoying the Boxing Day prices on the 77" C2 here in Canada, so the other week in CostCo when I walked past the endcap that has the 65C2 above the 77C2 I just knew it was time and I had to have it.
CONGRATS! Costco is what got me as well. The C1s were heavily marked down prior to the C2 line's arrival so I pulled the trigger on a 65" C1 and have absolutely loved it since. I used the savings to have it professionally calibrated and it eeked out a little bit extra PQ.

I also got mine from Costco, so... welcome to the club.

Going to return my 65 in C2 I got last month, Started getting this black frame flicker regardless of input and settings. Tried turning power saver off, tried turning VRR off, tried rebooting resetting etc. But it is even flickering on a static image built in the TV, so it's not my equipment.

Now question of rebuying a C2 or waiting for this year model or swapping to another brand.

Honestly...I'm afraid to clean my screen!

Use a lint-free rag and a little -- A LITTLE -- bit of water on the rag. Be careful.

You're better off using lens cleaner then water to avoid streaks.

Only use a microfiber soft cotton cloth and if you need any liquid you should only use distilled water or Austre's professional TV Screen cleaning kit.

Austre's TV Screen Cleaning Kit comes with a very high quality dual sided cloth and a very excellent liquid cleaner that is 100% safe for all TVs. Here's the link to our webpage for Austre's TV Screen Cleaning Kit:

Oops. I was thinking about my LCD, not my OLED.

Thank you for the tip!

I've found any liquid cleaner, even ones specifically for TVs, leaves streaks on a very glossy OLED screen.

Unless there's a mark of something that needs a targeted splash or something, I just use a dry microfibre cloth to buff.

I've never been too careful about what I use though for cleaning fluid, since I'm not saturating the TV with them. As long as there's zero abrasives or harsh chemicals in them.

When you say window cleaner, people here tend to wince, but if you're using a mild version sparingly (basically water and vinegar with little else) I've had zero issue on any AV gear for targeting cleaning of stubborn bits (such as cat pawprints and nose bops on a screen which can be a little greasy and need something to gently cut through it). I think the issue would be if you use a window cleaning brand with mild abrasives and harsher chemicals in it.

That said, I can see why it's recommended NOT to use window cleaner, as that covers the people who would use any old window cleaner lying around and wonder why their screen's damaged.

Does anyone who has a Panasonic 820 or 9000 4K player have handshake issues when you are playing a Dolby Vision disc when playing it? I constantly get a signal loss for a few seconds and then the signal comes back. The rest of the playback is flawless. This only goes away when turning off "Ultra HD Deep Color" but the TV makes you turn it back on when restarting playback again.

I am running HDMI 2.1 cables. They are certified. I also tested certified HDMI 2.0 cables and the same thing happens. Just curious if others have this issue?

I wish we’d be able to see the g3 up against the a95l right away instead of waiting until July.

Just ordered the 48” LG C2 OLED from Value Electronics. Going from a Samsung J5200 TV I’ve had for 7 years or so. I was mulling where to buy it from for the last week and settled on VE today. A bit anxious and scared to buy something this big and expensive online but I’m sure if there’s any problems, I’ll be well taken care of. But man I am excited! I’m in the cool kids club now.

Your new set will be treated well; VE does a great job in shipping. The Plasma I purchased from @RobertZohn years ago arrived in a protected crate via FedEx with zero issues.

LG finally listened (well after Vincent created a video about the C3 and G3) but still they finally fixed the auto-dimming in dark scenes of movies. They released a firmware update for the C3 and G3. This obviously was priority because the C3 and G3 do not have service menu settings to turn TPC Off. But, this firmware fixes the issue. Here's hoping LG releases firmware updates for all of their existing models to fix this issue. Even though I already went into the service menu on my C9, I play on turning it back on if LG does come out with a firmware update to fix the issue!

I watch his earlier video and it looked NOTHING like the G3 shipment we received Monday, March 20th.

I did the latest firmware update before I viewed the TV, but myself and all of the professional video experts I showed the G3 to saw no dimming on any content. In fact, we all mentioned how stable the TV was and that we did not see any dimming of the image.

I've spoke with the engineers and product management and this image luminance stability was achieved by many upgrades and enhancements in the new a9 Gen 6 processor, a welcome change in the "Panel Refresh cycles", and the new 2023 LG Display OLED module itself.

For me at least with my LG C9, I did see the auto-dimming issues. I would mainly see it in movies with dark scenes in Dolby Vision. The movie Eternals on Disney + had very dark scenes and I had to literally pause the movie every 10-15 minutes and move the magic remote just to get the brightness to return.

LG made the algorithm very aggressive, which is why we are all having these issues. Disabling TPC worked. I really hope though LG does provide a firmware update for the C9 to fix the issue. That way I can turn it back on and have no more worries. The C9 still rocks even after having it for almost 3 years now!

I don't think LG's 2019 a9 processor or the 2019 OLED module can use the same firmware that the new 2023 G3/C3 has that disables the ABL.

I'm meaning more that LG could individually develop the firmware for each series. Yes, that is a lot for the small team of people who work on the firmware but it is a major issue that spans from the Series 6 models all the way to the C2. I'm just glad they finally recognize that it's an issue and they (at least for the C3 and G3) fixed it quickly!

That is something I have always been happy about. LG does own up to their mistakes and fixes them. Or at least they keep things updated. Last update for the C9 was in December. Most companies wouldn't keep a 2018/2019 model updated at this point but LG does, and that says a lot about the company.
