I have a 6400 at my office and when I turn off the lights in the room the picture automatically dims in about 5 seconds afterwards. The set increases brightness when the lights are turned back on.

Can this very annoying feature be turned off?

Anyone have experiences with the 55d6000 vs the 55lv5500?

Both seem like nice 2d sets and very similar. Struggling to find comparisons/reviews and not sure which way to go here.

Hello everyone,

Samsung is proposing replacing my UN40C5000 with a UN40D6000 but after reading the issues with the 6000 I wonder if I should just ask for another 5000. I don't need the apps because have a dedicated HTPC. I would do more research myself but i only have a little time to get back to them and have work all day.

Thanks in advance!

I believe that has to do with the energy saver settings which automatically dim/brighten the picture depending on ambient light. I believe you have do disable the energy savings to some level.

I just setup my new 55" D6400. What is the consensus on the best settings? I tried the ones by CNET and it makes all the images appear too smoky..

Either way, would you perhaps have a particular scenario where i can reproduce the problem with the clouding? Maybe i can pause somewhere during a particular movie from say netflix ?? or somewhere within the TV's operating system where we can both reproduce this exact problem so i can tell EXACTLY what it is that we are dealing with?

Either way, i do have a slight corner bleed issue. But its certainly not as bad as some of the people that are experiencing here on this forum. My backlit settings are all at 10 on all TV modes (Movie, Dynamic, Standard, Natural etc..) - maybe that helped a little ?

I have the Bluray Tron movie from netflix right now (just came in the mail). Are you familiar with this movie at all?

Without getting to crazy you can turn on a movie where the credits are playing at the end and see them.You can pause right after the last credit rolls leaving a black screen.If your TV does what my D6400 does when you go to pause it after a second or two the screen will go all black like you turned it off which I think they do so you won't see it so bad.My old C6500 didn't do that I could pause at anytime to examine the picture.

LOL I answered you in the D7000 thread also.My new D6400 has flash lighting and some clouding also.I have just come to except that after 4 TVs 3 C series and my new D series that you have to be really lucky to get one without these problems to some extent.After the generous discount from the retailer I am going to live with it.I may call Samsung down the road but this TV is stayin.

Hi all,

Might be my first time posting. I'm trying to decide between a UN46D6400 ($1099) & an LG 47LW5600 ($899). I've looked through both owner's threads and am definitely leaning towards the Sammy but having a hard time justifying the $200 premium over the better-spec'ed LG (local dimming, wi-fi adaptor included).

I've seen both TVs in person with questionable demo content at the store so I'm wondering if anyone's got an opinion between these two sets and whether the Samsung is worth the premium.

I'd like to know as well. I'm a bit different in that I like the colors to pop a lot. I didn't make too many changes to mine. I upped the color from 50 to 55, and I turned down the backlight from 18 to 9. I also changed AMP from Standard to Clear. I think I also changed the black level to "Darkest".

I recently purchased my UN46D6400 and have been in love with it until I recently played a blu-ray disc and noticed horizontal lines of light going across the picture in certain scenes. It is like clouding, but not just in the corners. It is hardly noticeable when watching television but it made the blu-ray movie almost unwatchable. Has anyone seen this before or know if there is a way to make it go away? I'll probably have to return it I'm guessing.

Since no owners are jumping in... Try another blu ray to make sure it's not that particular movie. (e.g., Star Trek had a lot of camera flares in it.) Also, set your blu ray to output 24P, and set your TV to what used to be called Just Scan (instead of 16:9) to be able to display all the pixels. Also, consider turning off AMP for blu rays.

Okay, I'll give this a try. Thanks for your response!

I agree, my pictures seem to be smoky and lacking color a little.
Model- un55d6400. If I cannot get it to a satisfactory level I may go for the Sony nx720.

I have a un46d6000. I posted my settings several pages ago. First try with this and I used a calibration disk brought from amazon. I wasn't entirely happy with my settings so I've since tweaked them some.

Going through the calibration exercise taught me that it's ok not to blindly follow the calibration 100%. You should adjust the TV so the picture pleases you. If you are happy with the picture on your TV... that is what is important.

I like the Cable TV settings a lot and the more importantly my wife likes them. The Movie settings need more study time as I haven't watched as many movies as I should have (still on the netflix 30 day free trial).

I'd love to see others settings too. I've saved a .doc file of mine incase they get wiped out. That will save me the trouble of re-calibrating in the future.

Funny but I think that the picture on the tv has actually improved over when I first brought it home. I know there is supposed to be no burn in time on these... but still...?

How do i Test my TV for flashlighting and clouding. I created a black JPEG using Paint and watched it using a USB drive, i can see large white portions. Is this clouding? My settings are movie, Backlight at 9.

My panel is H301.

A black jpg... that's a good idea using it to test for flashlighting & clouding. I take it that if you view the .jpg on your computer it looks black with not clouding or flashlighting? A backlight of 9 is right in the middle of a 20 point scale. That is what I would need to use in a completely dark room. I would think that at 9 you shouldn't see any flashlighting. Could you list some of your other settings such as:

brightness
contrast

Brightness is at 50, contrast 95, sharpness 0, all post processing such as amp, edge enhancement, dynamic contrast turned off. I did not try this in a completely dark room. I will try it tonight. Any good blu rays to judge those issues? I have the dark knight, lotr collection and the departed.

Anyone know if the new RMC-QTD1 remote keyboard really won't work on the 6000 series?

The website says 6300 and above, but did anyone tried it yet?...

Thank you! Someone in the thread eventually told me the instructions.

I appreciate it though!

Your brightness, contrast, and sharpness settings all sound good. If you can post a picture of the clouding on your screen that would help a lot.

If you are not happy with the picture (clouding, excessive flashlighting) you should consider returning it to the store. I know it's a hassle but if you are going to live with this TV for a couple of years you should be satisfied with it's performance. I think almost everyone has flashlighting to some degree, but you shouldn't have any clouding.

Found a website where clouding is explained and has some examples.
