So I bought the LG OLED B8 55” TV from a recent deal. It’s less than 30 days old and probably done about 100 hours so far. Recently I noticed a slight vertical band towards the right side of the screen, noticeable in grey screens (visible when prime app is starting up) barely noticeable but it's there. When Googled, it seems this is very common with OLEDs. Anyone else seeing this with your recent purchase?
I did run a manual pixel refresher once, and I think the band has slightly faded or rather have moved a little.
I would say you wouldn’t notice it unless you look for it. I first noticed while watching stranger things as it got a lot of dark scenes. Irony is this is a replacement TV I bought after returning the Samsung Q60 QLED due to clouding and bleeding. And now this.
UPDATE: So I took some pictures of banding. As you can see it's very minor, and it's not as bad for the naked eye. I can barely notice it. I think this is common for OLEDs (according to rtings as well)and should be ignored.
However, doing all these tests I saw how the whites are not really white. Pictures attached under different lighting conditions. It's not that bad to the naked eye. But is this normal? the Bluish shade on whites? OLEDs boast about blacks being real black but what about the whites?
