After yet another bad experience with Currys I’ll give it a miss & try with a retailer that actually values their customers.

Shop around I got the oled 55 e7 for £1499

It's £100 TCB on LGs. £150 on Samsung.

My brother has this TV and after leaving sky news on in the back ground for a couple of hours a day it has permanent burn in. LG won’t fix it as burn in isn’t covered under warranty 6 months old and he’s stuck with it!

There’s a process within tv to remove burn ins. Did he try that?

Duplicated

Yes he tried that, he said he run it every day for about two weeks and it didn’t make any difference! LG wouldn’t help and neither would the retailer. I think it was Richer Sounds :

Already cheaper today at Argos 1349.10 with code flash10

It sucks but that's the issue with self emissive TV'S, you have to look after them properly. Plasmas are the same. I played gears of war on my panny plasma for about 5 hours every day for a few months and had permanent burn in.

I paid £5500 for my first 42” plasma many moons ago. I also got burn in from playing games I didn’t get any burn in from my pioneer plasma though! I’d love to buy a 65” OLED but burn in drives me crazy and so not worth the risk. I do want a new TV but don’t know what I want

Will you get burn in with the channel logo being in the same place all the time.

I can't say for sure as I've never owned one (you get image retention, which is temporary if you don't leave a static image on the screen for too long on plasma, so I'm guessing it's the same with OLED) but if you look after it properly, eg use the screen aspect settings to move the logo out of view, you'll be fine. It's a pain to have to do all the time but worth it if you want to avoid screen burn/image retention

I've heard the screen burn in on these is appalling. A mate got one recently and he said it is worse than his old plasma. A shame as this really ticks all the boxes, but it is apparently a massive "avoid"

Interesting that burn in is happening so quick?! And without a still picture too? Something sounds wrong

For anyone reading and is concerned about image retention & screen burn, knowing the difference is handy (if you know already, please ignore)

Image Retention is temporary and will fade in a relatively short space of time, provided you don't leave a static image on the screen for too long. It's common on self emissive TV's like OLED & Plasma and doesn't cause long term problems. It's fairly easy to get rid of especially if you have some kind of cleaning facility in your TV's settings.

Screen Burn is more serious, usually caused by leaving a static image on the screen for too long, usually hours.

It's incredibly difficult to shift, sometimes impossible.

I had serious screen burn on my first Plasma after playing Xbox all night leaving part of the games HUD permanently burnt onto the screen.

Hope that helps

I think this will be £1350 come Cyber Monday.

By the last few editions of Plasma TV's burn in was completely solved as far as I can tell. I get screen retention on my final series panasonic but it clears within minutes. No sign of any burn in despite leaving news with a band on the bottom fof the display running for hours on end having left the room.

I was going to go for one of these if the price came down while the cashback was still on the E7 but I think I'll hold off having read this.

I wouldn’t buy one either. I was so shocked at how bad the burn in looks from leaving sky news on. You should be able to watch anything on it unless you are actually told don’t leave a still image for more than hour. Even a still channel logo! My brother says he can just about cope with watching it but he said he is always looking for the burnt in marks so not enjoying watching it anymore

Newer oled have image shift and a few other stuff to prevent any burn in. However if you don’t get it fixed go though trading standards and any ombudsmen then small claims. When they advertise these TVs the quite blatantly say you can use gaming for the best experience plus why wouldn’t you buy a tv to actually watch tv even if it has a logo . Just remember to do a pixel refresh every time you finish watching. It takes about an hour but do it before tv cools down or switch off by wall.
