Total Power On Time

Recommended Posts

I want to ask that what is the ideal total power on time for a new lg tv. I bought one and it already shows 1048 hours. Is this possible for a new tv? Anyone have any idea?

Hi Rohit,

I was not even aware this was a feature, where did you find it and what is the model of your television?

I recently bought a "new" OLED65C8 and it indicated a "Total Power On Time" of 3999 hours.   I contacted LG Support via chat for an explanation and they abruptly terminated the chat, without explanation,  when I asked how accurate this metric was and what tolerances it has.

I suppose this metric could be an artifact from when the OS was imaged onto the new TV.  However, in the worst case, a shady retailer could be selling used/refurbished product as new.  But, if I'm not mistaken, this metric can be reset via the service panel.  If so, you'd think the shady individual would also reset the hours to zero.

I'll post again if I find any thing that is significant.

FWIW, after a subsequent contact with LG Customer Service,  providing a serial number and asking for any available history related to this serial, I was able to learn the following.

My TV was identified as a store demo assigned to one of the larger retail  chains.

I guess the take away from all of this is:

1. The "Total Power On Time" is a very useful metric to investigate

2. Some retailers do shady things

First thing I did was check this when we bought our 86UH9500 new back in 2017 - it was sold as open box which was really more like crappy, taped up box but never used.  Out of the box, it was obvious the set had never been used, all packing and wrap was in place, still had that new TV smell.  

I had trouble with the app you can use to check the up time in the service menu but also found it in the General/About this TV menu and it had 1 -2 hours if memory serves, if that.  Subsequent registration with LG confirmed the set was new, never registered etc. 

Interesting note: with an app or a service remote, you can actually reset the time.  I found this out by accident when I reset the TV after restoring changes a technician had made that made the TV unwatchable.

      Updated my LG 55UK6360PTE to version 05.10.10 a few weeks ago. Few days after the update the television has trouble booting up, it gets stuck on the lg logo, then I have to switch the tv off by holding the power logo for a few seconds, then boot it up again only to find it getting stuck on the lg logo again, after repeating this process a few times I am finally able to boot the tv and proceed smoothly until I dare turn it off to face the whole issue all over again. Anyone else witnessed the same problems, is there anyway to downgrade the webos, tried the lgdtvupdater but it doesn't work, I guess it only works for models upto 2017. Correct me if I am wrong

      Hello everyone!
      I've just bought the new LG 55SM8600PLA with the latest update (AirPlay 2 and HomeKit support) and having many problems with it.
      The moment I plug the Ethernet cable on it, the TV starts spamming my entire network with Zeroconfi packages (captured with WireShark) resulting on all devices becoming unresponsive and slow.
      Here is screenshot of me pinging a wireless device with latency higher than 500ms, the moment I turn off the TV, ping goes to normal ~1ms (all cable):

      This happens with all devices on my local network. Using a couple of Asus RT-AC68U routers.
      Does this happens to any of you?
      Thanks!
