Thanks, I'll be switching this morning.

As to the fellow who asked if all the sets have some flashing.... I'm one who doesn't see it but perhaps that is because I don't know what to look for. Obviously, it doesn't bother me if it is there. I watch a lot of TV so if it were something really terrible I'm sure it would have annoyed me by now. So, since it hasn't maybe it isn't as bad as some of the earlier notes in this forum reported.

I would like to be able to listen to tunes from my Ipod or review pictures etc thru my KDL52V100. When I hook up the Ipod I get the menu screen and folders show up. Any suggestions?
My A/V receiver is an older Onkyo and doesn't have 3.5mm input on it and for sure doesn't have a USB input.
Any help will greatly appreciated.

Mark

I haven't noticed any flashing either and like you not sure what to look for.
Some channels (TNT HD) the flesh tones will look little green/gold in some scenes. The kids were watching "Finding Nemo" the other night and I stopped to admire the incredible picture when there was this "red glow" around Nemo.
It was there for that one scene and then went away (DVD component input)
when the scene changed.

I'm going to try Serialmikes new setting tonight.

Jothoton,

I had my 40" model for three weeks before I returned it for the same model. I initially thought the flashing problem was resolved with the new set, but after two weeks of viewing the issue is clearly still there.

The new set does not suffer from the "garbled sound" issue of my earlier set, and the greenish tones are no longer evident (could be due to my continued adjustments of the color) but the flashing and dimming are still present.

I plan to keep the set and hope that Sony will address the issue(s) soon.


Good Luck,

Eric

Hi y'all

Overall I'm happy with the TV BUT on very dark scenes there is white clouding in the top corners.

Any idea what this is and can I fix it?


Thanks



Paul

I just go a KDL-52V5100 and I'm loving it. I actually like the color of the Samsung's better, but the glossy screen was too much. We have too many windows in our place. The matte black screen of the Sony is perfect.
Combined with DirecTV it's amazing. I don't have a bluray yet, holding out for the PS3 price drop... I've been holding out for 2 years now

Anyway, I was wondering if anyone bought this secure strap to strap the TV to a stand. I just bought it and feel ripped off. It was just a piece of plastic, that's it.
I have a year old 32" Sony LCD and the strap was fabric you can tighten and was actually useful.
I read another post from someone saying Sony was negleg

Yo serialmike, thanks for keeping us up to date with your settings.

However, I tried your current settings, and found the red push to be really frequent. With your previous settings, I didn't notice it at all.

Have you experienced any red push with your new settings? It could just be my experience.

p.s. Oh and in regards to flashlighting, you could always see it as a positive. You could imagine the tv providing ambient lighting for the picture!

I'm fortunate enough to have them so far only in the top left and right corners. I want to try what someone in this forum suggested, by tightening the screws. Luckily they aren't so bad.

I tried my hand at customizing settings to my liking. Here are my settings. For me, these current settings look great, and minimize flashlighting.

Picture Mode : Custom
Backlight : 8
Picture : 92
Brightness : 49
Color : 38
Hue : G2
Color Temperature : Warm
Sharpness : 1
Noise Reduction : Off
Advanced Contrast Enhancer : High
Gamma : Low
Clear White : Off
Live Color : Off

Advanced Settings
White Balance: Factory settings



I haven't played around with the white balance yet. I'm going to keep tweaking but these are my settings so far.

I have not changed a single thin g now in 2 days. I love the new settings.

I have not witnessed a single red flashing so far. There is minimal auto dimming just enough for the scenes to retain proper contrasts and darkness.

I use them during the day and the eve and love them at both times.

EDIT- Sorry guys I had a typo in my settings and it is very very important. Backlight is to be at 5
This is not something I changed today. I had this setting at 5 for the past 2 days but I had it incorrectly posted. The difference to the overall presentation is big. If you so choose please try again at 5.

Been learning alot from this thread and all the efforts on posting calibration settings.

I finally took the plunge today for a 52 in. when BestBuy had it for $1499. While deciding, they hooked it to a Blu Ray for me and I dialed in settings close to what I remembered of serialmike's specs instead of store flamethrower mode and liked what I saw. Picked up a LG blu ray player along with it and will get delivery next week. Hope it will have new firmware already in place.

Wow nice price. Welcome to our V club.

Just a footnote. I tweaked settings a hair. The ones I am currently running are in (Parentheses).

Just a thought on why I did the tweaks. First the backlight picture adjust. Im trying to get the Backlight as low as possible since thats lighting from the back. The lower this is the better night viewing is I think. The difference between 5/95 and 4/99 is marginal but there is a difference to how the screen is lit. So I am toggling to decide.

The other change is fairly big. I dropped g bias ALOT but as you guys will see the effect is faces that were orange are now more proper. these are something I am playing with. This is why I gave both settings.

Just an FYI these are eye tweaks at this point. It seems that without the color meter it is very very hard to get greyscale proper across the board. What I mean is that you can get an area right but that doesnt, mean that the click down a notch of red gain was good across the board.

So I am trying some eye tweaks. Again why I am giving both settings

Anyhow I think you guys are going to like this. Alot of people have been complaining of green push and I had been noticing it alot. Orange faces and greenish yellows are the symptoms. Lets say with theis this faces are right and cabs are yellow. Things just look right.

When the set arrives, how do I determine which firmware it has so I can figure out if I need the update via USB?

There is a screen right in the menu. Most likely you will have a firmware nwere than alot of us as they have been shipping the sets with a firmware newer than the one on the site.

Picking this bad boy up tonight on my way home. My old TV was an RCA and the geometry was way off. Best Buy wants to charge $300 to calibrate it, so I'm glad I saw the postings here.

You can calibrate from the get go. I do however think after some hrs of viewing the set does "settle" in to a mode.

We talked about this many pages ago. LCD does not have a burn in or break in period. You can abuse the sucker from minute one game 58 hrs straight. Pause a game for 2 hrs and come back. WAtch 4:3 programing for 90 hrs straight it doesnt matter.

But I do think that the backlight sort of burns off a hair after a few hrs of use.

Then you can simply recalibrate if needed.

Any suggestions on a place to get these at stores instead of online? I figure $100 should get one that works.

So this TV is a PITA to calibrate. Every set up has drawbacks. I can't find a middle ground I like yet. I am going to just get a colorimeter.

With such poetic description, How can I not look at those settings again

Edit-They use default white balance...?

Picked up a KDL-46V5100 on Sunday and have been very happy with the set so far. It is for my parents but before they buy a new stand and throw out their old crappy TV cabinet I have been using the TV (better than having it sit in the box right? )

Been trying and tweaking different settings and have been happy with serialmike's most recent settings. Cablevision HD looks great would be happier with FIOS if I could convince my father to switch. Blu-ray with PS3 looks amazing; so does gaming on the PS3 and Xbox360.

Have noticed flashlighting/clouding on all four corners of the TV but so far I have only noticed it on completely dark screen when loading up video games such as Resident Evil 5... it is basically non-existent during normal viewing.

Hi everyone,

new to this site and HDTVs overall. Picked up the KDL-40V5100 today on a slickdeal for $818 total (lucky to not have to pay tax or shipping!).

I would have preferred a 46-47 inch set but I feel at this price the TV was too good to pass up. I am excited about getting the set....any other happy 40 owners?

They made me buy the player for full value ($250) and then they refunded the difference. Something about accounting. I took the SONY home and hated every function it had. Since I had a full price receipt I took it back the next day and got a Panasonic BD60 which was on sale at the time for $250 and took that home instead. I really like the Panasonic. So exchanges there are easy.

The reward zone program is nice also if you spend a lot. I made some big purchases this year and I'll be getting a WD TV Media player with my reward points.


But no one should pay for calibration. Just cruise the internet.

you guys know that a "real" calibration is much more than adjusting user settings, when it is done by a true calibrator with education and experience...

they use the service menu to make the kinds of adjustments that can not be made solely using the user settings menu.

the problem comes when places like best buy get their newbie calibrators isf certified which is possible with quite limited few hours instruction. then these guys go out and, from reports on these forums, do a half-arsed user menu adjustment and charge the same $300 fee.

if you're interested to find out more on what a 'real' calibrator does for his money, and how to find one, www.tweaktv.com has some good information, as does www.isfforum.com PLUS go to the calibration section of this forum. it's really not all that simple, or easy. whether it's worth it to you, that's another matter.

inanycase, even doing your experimenting, the info on the forum, and the links you can find there, can only help.

iirc afaik fwiw imo

2 things...

1, Best Buy does NOT go into the service menu for thier calibrations. They do use meters, but they only use the regular menu settings.

2, The 52V and what I can guess all the V series sets do NOT have any adjustments that will affect any input on the sets image quality unless you have devices connected via the component input. The service menu only has ADC color adjustments. HDMI color and settings are hardcoded.

1. that's pretty much what i said, although i have read iirc that bb calibrators have gone into service menus.

2. are you saying even with a qualified and competent calibrator that there is no benefit possible using the service menu for the v5100 sets?

my comments were addressed to the several posts that seemed to be slamming professional calibrations per se and figured some links to click might help give some perspective.
