I am reposting this because the previous thread archived and I want it searchable.

A user reported that it had screen burn-in. I don't mean to call them out, but I think it's only fair to try to clear this up:


That TV has really bad image retention. Leaving a static image on screen for only a few seconds will cause burn in. It does go away but the burn in happens so quickly it's not worth it. I had purchased this tv for a bedroom and even the settings menu of the tv would cause burn in. I hooked up my PC to it to test it out for gaming. All I did was start Steam, go to a game and launch it, when the screen turned black the Steam interface still remained on the screen. Using a web browser was even worse because of the toolbar. I ended up returning it.


I have not reproduced the claim that leaving a static images causes noticeable temporary burn-in.

I have left it on the desktop for awhile during setup phase, and tried minimizing the Steam window, but did not notice any issues. I have left it in the BIOS with the red outline over text (around 10-20 minutes) and quickly switched screens to something with black space there. No burn-in.

I believe that user had a defect in their 4K TV, or somehow had a different model of TV.

Now I have not done much gaming yet because I'm still in the setup/installation phase of my new PC, but the claims of instant noticeable burn-in is definitely not true for my 4K TV.

This isn't really meant much for more discussion. I just wanted to clear this up and have it searchable for those searching for 4K TVs in this forum.

Also, temporary image retention and burn-in are very different. It's like the difference between stubbing your toe and losing your toe to frostbite.

I read that some LG T.V's come with software that will remove the burn-in when you run it, but it takes a while to finish. I think I read this about the B7 series of LG T.V's.
