Thanks

I have a 60" ES8000 and just recently installed the Sanus VLF525 wall-mount. As far as build quality, installation instructions, and sturdiness the Sanus is the best I have ever seen. Mine will extend 25" from the wall with no sag whatsoever. This allows for rotation nearly 90° each way for viewing from off center. When fully back in the center position, the TV is about 5" from the wall, but that is just right for me, and is enough to put it flush with a soundbar (still waiting for the new 52" Vizio 5.1 wireless one). I am very happy with it.

Just need one that still allows me to get to the the upgrade kit at the back.

Thanks. Is this in reference to a Sanus mount? If so, do you know which model?

Thank you for the feedback, good to know Sanus is a quality mount without problems. I see that your mount is full motion. The one I am considering, VLT16, is tilt only but has the descriptor super slim mount so I expect it sits a little closer to the wall, which is what I would prefer.

I should add, this picture is of the 60 inch model.


I registered yesterday with Samsung. Does anyone know if the Manufacturers warranty is in fact extended by 3 months upon product registration?? I purchased in March 3013...sadly I'm outside of my warranty window. But this "cloud" is getting worse. At first I thought it was bleeding from the Samsung logo led...I shut that off and started googling and my searches led me here. I've been a member for several years a quietly read...but now I need some advice. What do you guys think??

It should have told you that when you registered the TV and I believe an email should also have been sent to confirm your extension (not 100% sure on the email. Trying to go by memory). When I registered my es7500 online last year it most definitley gave an extra 3 months though. That is for sure. You can call Samsung and ask them to confirm this for you.

I can confirm the 3 month portion was included in the confirmation email. I'm extremely frustrated with this 'cloud' and can't really pinpoint why it appears. I just know that we can see an outline of it everyone when my tv is on. Hopefully Samsung well honor the 3 month extension...without I'm afraid I'll be s.o.l.

I thought add to this as a journal of my activities. I contacted Samsung and they replied with the following:

Dear Valued Customer,

We have read and received your online inquiry.
We apologize but we were unable to contact you.
This is what we recommend:


Set the TV to the Standard or Movie picture mode.

lower the backlight on their TV to 7. (Menu > Backlight > Adjust with Left and Right Arrows )

make sure their set is well ventilated.



test with the above recommendations for a week and if the clouding is still apparent set the TV up for service

Thank you for choosing Samsung.
**************************************

I, personally, feel that level of response is inadequate. I've requested a service call and I included a picture of their suggested settings.


Wish me luck....

To be continued.....

Samsung finally elevated my claim yesterday. I received a call from the tv repair technicians and they said they know what the problem is. They are ordering the "panel" today and will be in sometime next week. I'll be sure to post after pictures too.

 I have had my ES8000 for 2 years now, not one issue. Liked it so much I went with a similar set (F7100) when the Sharp in my bedroom went to sleep with the fishes. After reading a few pages from this thread I wish I would have gotten the extended service plan LOL

I have an issue with my TV, yesterday I just noticed that there where some black spots on the TV, tried to clean it with a clean cloth so I passed it some times and applied little pressure to the spot, I thought that it was dead leds but upon closer inspection and watching it for quite a bit I discovered it's a ant!

 

So I wonder what can I do to remove the insect from that spot, it's almost in the middle of the screen and doesn't seem's to move anymore, it's not quite big but it does kind of bother me, I always been kind of obsesive with having a perfet screen and thhis is really annoying to me, do you have any advice or idea on what could I do?

 

Here is a picture.

Hey,

 

TV just out of warranty and this has now happened twice today! Gutted! Anyone had this before or think they know what's causing it? Going to contact Samsung after the weekend?

 

Edit - Seems that its the TV that is turning itself off and on again every 5 minutes or so. This happened to anyone?

Wow, how did that panel pass the inspection test? Does it have to be "spider" size before they can see it? I don't think the ant hatched in there. Unless Samsung says it crawled into the screen AFTER you bought it???

Is it under warranty? I would have the panel or the the TV replaced. I know of no other way to get that out if it's pressed in the display. The ant probably cooked in there. Good luck and if it is under warranty, explain the situation (document everything) and be persistent.

Hi gang, been away from this thread for awhile.

I am in need of a new, big TV to fill a large great room/kitchen area, thinking 65.

I am likely going to jump ship to the Vizio M or P series. After all the struggles I have had with edge-lit, the full-array of the Vizio seems unbeatable for the price/performance. The 55 ES8000 will move to the basement.

It seems like Samsung has gone curved in the high end, or mandatory 4k. Is there anything compelling this year worth my money over the Vizio?

Hope all is well.

Hey Mavinwow. This month is a 2 year anniversary with my un60es8000. I still can't get enough of this tv.

I'm definitely still a Samsung guy although the Vizio would be a contender if I was in the market.

Love for all things Hi-def...Losing count; 200 plus bluray, 500 plus dvd, 30 plus HDdvd and a rapidly growing 50 plus in the cloud.

Blade & Mavinwow - great to see you back on the forum! I haven't had much to write and have been enjoying my Sammy ES8000 for about two years.

Knock, knock - - everything still going great with the panel. I am not connected to the Internet and haven't done any updates for over a year and a half. I'm very happy with the picture the way it is and have just enjoyed the TV.

If I were in the market for a new TV, I would definitely look at 70" or 75" set. And Vizio would be at the top of my list. They seem very competitive, price wise. I know that 4K is down the road, but I think those sets are priced too high. I anticipate getting 5 years out of my Sammy (I bought the extended warranty) and by then, new technology and improvements will be worth looking at.

But right now, I couldn't be happier with my set, the picture and viewing experience.

It's really odd the TV is not in warranty anymore, I called a service center and was told that for removing it the cost would be 200 dollars, I had it over a year and nothing showed up on the screen, until I moved the TV from the place I had it the ant appeared.

 

I took this issue in my hands and with the help of a friend opened the TV, removed the ant (it was really smashed against the crystal) and closed the TV, now it's again 100% antless :D

 

I believe it was stuck on the limit of the TV and fell down when I moved the TV, because when we opened the TV I am sure there is no way it could have crawled inside the screen, it's really sealed and it has many layers of protection so it seems impossible, lucky me it wasn't very much after that and the TV is working perfectly :).

...hey Rico, awesome to see you check in as well.

I'm still on for 1046.2 "BladerunnerUpdate" as named by cra cra Carmen. Ha ha ha.

yes... i think value - rich 4k sets and content are still a few years away.

If naughty stuff happens i always keep a home theater charge card stashed away for emergency big screen.

I would not really be tempted to get a 4K set, but the Vizio P series looks outstanding on paper. The primary perk would be the full array dimming with a larger number of dimming zones compared to the M-series.

The 4K is along for the ride, and at 65 inches, I could see the smaller pixels helping out on 1080p content.

I agree the p series looks best on paper. 4k content is too far away to matter today. I am hoping this tv lasts me until oled is affordable.

Btw - high end audio is just as fun as video! I just got a set of kef r500s and they are incredible.

Blade - great to hear from you! Yes, the "BR/Carmen" settings were great. If you reading this, Carmen, by all means, please drop us a line. You've been "incommunicado" for too long. I hope it wasn't Barzini....

I'd like to get a solid three more years out of my TV. Five, if I'm lucky. I watch it a lot.

I've been impressed with Vizio lately. I even bought one of their laptops for $700.00 with a Solid State Drive. 1920 X 1080 screen, non reflective and it boots up and shuts down like Muhammad Ali said - - "I'm fast, real fast. When I turn out the lights, I'm in bed before the room goes dark!"

The "P" series has full array but no 3D. I saw an "M" series with passive 3D - 80" for around $3K on Amazon. That's pretty amazing. I'm hoping that in three (minimum) to five (maximum) that they have 4K content (OLED?) and can lighten up on the weight for an 80" or 90" set. That will put my projector out of business (100" - BenQ W1080 ST)

I know many folks can live without 3D, but I find it enjoyable. By the way - - if you haven't seen it, the 3D movie "Nurse" with Paz de la Humpa, er, Huerta, is outrageously funny! Lots of skin and really bad "B" jokes. Definitely NOT a family movie and not up there with "Gone With The Wind," but thoroughly entertaining. A real guys movie - - and I think the girls would like the basic "plot" behind the flick. Not that it's overly complex, but it would hit home with many of them. On second thought, do not let them see it. It might give them ideas.

Best - Rico

The "P" series has full array but no 3D. I saw an "M" series with passive 3D - 80" for around $3K on Amazon. That's pretty amazing. I'm hoping that in three (minimum) to five (maximum) that they have 4K content (OLED?) and can lighten up on the weight for an 80" or 90" set. That will put my projector out of business (100" - BenQ W1080 ST)

I know many folks can live without 3D, but I find it enjoyable. By the way - - if you haven't seen it, the 3D movie "Nurse" with Paz de la Humpa, er, Huerta, is outrageously funny! Lots of skin and really bad "B" jokes. Definitely NOT a family movie and not up there with "Gone With The Wind," but thoroughly entertaining. A real guys movie - - and I think the girls would like the basic "plot" behind the flick. Not that it's overly complex, but it would hit home with many of them. On second thought, do not let them see it. It might give them ideas.

Best - Rico

I never could get into 3D. Makes the wife nauseas and we almost never use it. Easy to give up for us.

Fingers crossed the 65 inch P series shows up in the next 2 months and is not a disappointment. It is surprising how small the 55 looks in the new large space it is in.

My ES8000 settings, calibrated with an i1D3 and calman: Standard Mode, Movie Mode (out of date, will update soon)

Hey folks...I recently got a open box UN55ES8000 for a song at auction, and thus far I'm thrilled with it.

One question, though, involving ARC and the onboard apps. My setup is to pass everything through a Yamaha RX-A3000 to the TV, and it works fine. However, for the TV's onboard apps, in some cases I'd like to be able to use the Yamaha and its speakers, instead of the TV's integrated speakers. I've enabled the HDMI ARC and CEC on the Yamaha and Anynet and ARC on the TV, and yet when I try to use the apps, audio continues to come from the receiver (being passed through from the cable box), drowning out the TV's playback of the app audio.

Ubertrout - if I understand you correctly, you want to hear the "ARC" playback from the Sammy TV to your system speakers without having the audio from your cable box being played at the same time?

Can you change the input on your receiver to a "TV" setting? If your Yamaha is set to your "Cab/Sat" - you will continue to get that audio stream even though you are in "Internet" or "Apps" mode with your TV.

So, naturally, I'm a genius and didn't figure out that I need to use the HDMI 2 port on the tv (the one that says ARC next to it) until just now. Once I did that and set receiver to "on" the setup seemed to mostly work, although it still seems a little wonky. Unsure if this means I have to change settings every time I want to watch TV without the surround system on (heresy, I know, but I only really use it for movies and music).

No problem. It's easy to miss the ARC setup on the HDMI port on the Sammy set.

I used to have a Yamaha Receiver (RX2000 I believe).

I remember my configuration was as follows - Cab/Sat Input on Yamaha (Input) is where I connected my HDMI from my Satellite Dish (in your case, your cable modem).

If you've connected your Yamaha receiver to your TV via the "HDMI 2" port on the Samsung set, there should be a "toggle" - a button on the Yamaha remote for "TV" as well for "Cab/Sat."

When watching "Cable" and wanting the sound through your receiver to your speakers, select the button "Cab/Sat" on your Yamaha remote.

When using the Samsung TV for Internet Apps. - press "TV" on the Yamaha remote. The ARC should work.

I hope this helps.
