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.

      Dear All,
      I'm new here hoping to find a solution to my problem, after now trying around for almost two days without any result.
      My set-up:
      - LG OLED55C97LA OLED TV
      - Nubert nuPro X-3000 (Pair of active speakers)
      The active speakers are connected to the TV via HDMI-ARC on both sides. I'm aware that my configuration might be a bit unique, however I have the feeling that it is the TV / webOS which is messing arround with me.
      After connecting my speakers to the HDMI-ARC, changing the TVs output to the HDMI 2 (ARC) is started the device configuration. I was glad, as typing in "Nubert" into the device selection of both "Home cinema system" or "Bluetooth / Soundbar", the webOS brought up a configuration to select.
      During the "try-out" phase of the configuration process, turn on and off the power of the speakers works perfectly - even very fast! After configuration, sound comes through the speakers very well and I can adjust the volume. However, when I turn of the TV the speakers will remain on. Same vice versa when trying to turn everything on by only starting the TV.
      Does anyone face a similar problem and might have a workaround for this? It is very frustrating and annoying, as it works perfectly in the configuration - but not later on.
      Thanks for your help!

      I have a one year-old model 43UK6500AUA, with standard remote only (no Magic Remote). I can find no mention anywhere of Time Machine. Does this model not include Time Machine  II functionality? Must one have a Magic Remote to reveal this feature? I am also baffled by numerous references in the forum to using HDMI , which should not be necessary if using the TV's built-in tuner, as I intend to do. There is also mention of using USB3 for the external HDD. My TV has only  two  USB ports : USB1 and USB2 — or does this refer to USB 3.0 version (as opposed to USB 2.0)?

      TVset: SM90107LA  (europe/german model)   /   WebOS: 04.80.02
      When scheduling a planned record of a TV broadcast by using the electronic program guide data (EPG), often the last minutes of the broadcast are missing at the records. This is very annoying. Fortunately you can adjust the starting and ending time of a planned (future) record in that manner that you can, for example, extend the ending time by 5 or 10 minutes. This is very helpful.
      Unfortunately this option is not available for instant records either from the EPG screen or by direct recording. Here I have only the opportunity to completely change the EPG ending time of the running record to an own time value (e.g. record of 1 h from now). It would be more helpful if running records could also be extended a little bit but without loosing the end time of the record taken over from EPG.
      Are there any other solutions for it?

      Hello to all,
      I've bought these days LG 50UM4750PLA  2019 model and wanted to check it's power on time. 
      I know that in previous WebOS version this feature was in  Settings -> General -> About this TV -> Total Power On Time  , but now I can't find it.
      I don't know does it matter but my tv is European model, made in Poland. 
      Is there any other way to check "Total Power On Time"  by entering  some Secret Menu or Service menu or something else?

      Hi all,
      hope someone can help me. I have a LG 49LX761H model 2016. I know it’s a hospitality tv but turned that mode off it works perfect. We upgrade the webos to the latest version available but the content store is not available. Is this function not available on this model or do I need to turn something on. Hope someone has the answer. Thanks

      I have
      LG webOS TV UF950T,
      software version 04.06.00
      1.)  WebOS is getting updates but new  apps are not showing up in LG  Content store.  When I visit 
      link hidden, please login to viewthrough my Tv browser there are many new Apps which are not in LG content store.         When i try to install , it says  not compatible with your Tv. 2) When i try to play a video some times it says video format not supported and some times audio format not supported like with opus & ogg.
      My question is to Manufacturers/ WebOs designers if this is the case what is the point in updating TV, when there are no apps or support for new video or audio formats ????
      In this case its like if i want new apps, I have to buy a new TV, updates are not helping in improving TV in any ways, no longer a Smart TV
      lol
