The idea just occurred to me that perhaps an EVO kit might be an inexpensive solution. Thoughts?

Mine has done this from the start and the EVO kit did not fix it. Seems to go to 3D more on netfix.

Yeah it's been a problem with the TV from day 1. Luckily, you can just go into 3D settings and change it from Auto Detect or Message Notification to Off. Then you can just turn the 3D on with the remote when needed manually

I've been using Garnoch's settings for the longest time, but I just installed the SEK2000 and everything looks off. Would anybody with a UN60ES8000 + SEK2000 mind sharing their settings?

The wireless on my es7500 crapped out sometime after installing the sek-1000. I got it back by replacing the failed wifi module -- samsung model WIDT20R
the part # on mine was BN58-01148C.

Edit: I didn't notice the wifi problem until after using the SEK-2000. I have since removed the SEK-2000 and gone back to the SEK-1000. At the same time I replaced the wifi module and it has been working for the last 6 months.

Failing onboard computer?

About 3 weeks ago, my ES8000 would randomly stop responding to most remote control keys. I don't use motion or voice, those are disabled. I would press the menu key, no response (no response from number keys, most other keys). I found out if I pressed either the info, tools or source key, then all was normal again, for any amount of time between 2 minutes and several days.

Some possibly useful information, or else irrelevant and a waste of time to read this paragraph: I use that feature that turns off the backlight when you set some settings low enough. When the problem occurs, the backlight comes on, even though the settings are such that it should not.

Today it got worse. I pressed the power button on the remote, and I heard the TV's click sound, but no picture, and then none of the remote buttons worked. I unplugged. It happened again, I unplugged again. Then it worked fine for 10 minutes, but while watching it, the screen went off again and no remote keys worked. Unplugged. Then it worked fine for hours. Now it's doing what I described in the first paragraph.

Does this sounds like a failure of a periphery component to the onboard computer, something like an A/B switch sometimes failing? Is my TV junk (0 K resolution), or does this problem sound like something that can be somewhat easily fixed?

I called Geek Squad and had someone take a look at it. He immediately saw the line down the side and said he will come right back. About 5 minutes later said the panel needed to be replaced but Best Buy wont replace it, to go to the store and we will get a comparable tv. I was like oh crap. Went Christmas Eve, and they gave me the full 2899.99 + tax credit that I paid for the tv May 2012! I was floored as I was not expecting that. Ended up picking out the 65" Class Curved TV, UN65HU9000FX, for only $100 more. And yes I paid for the 5 year warranty and grabbed something else for $100 to get the 2 years no interest.

Being delivered tomorrow. Guess I will have a new thread to subscribe to.

Well for those of us who bought the 2012, with the promise of "evolving our TV" till 2016, were had... I feel worse for the 2014 H-Series guys, who never even got one. Those who had the FHD TV's, the One-Connect UHD folks got theirs.

The link I added a couple of posts up, for the South Korea page, includes a couple of large update files. These may be the firmware updates that replace the Evo Kit.

Glad I got the SEK-2000 when I had the chance. I'm happy with it.

EVO Kits? For those who have installed these, what have been the primary and most impactful benefits of this "upgrade"?

I use my un60es8000 strictly for video. I stream from SmartHub via my Samsung bluray player. The last FW update i did was the 1046.2 which some of my peeps here fondly nicknamed the "Bladerunner update" LOL... I've had no drama or glitches since and to my knowledge that was the last FW that offered video quality improvement.

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.

Question New firmware released (ver 1059) for UN55ES8000F - any good?

I have the 2012 model of this fine TV, and I now see that on August 19, 2015, the 1059 version of the firmware has been released.

Any luck with it? Any comments?

I am still on 1054.4 and wondering if any better than 1056/1057 duds, which caused horrible WIFI stopping to work issues....

Issue with Flashing/Ghosting on image from inputs

Good afternoon all,

I began having some issues with me UN55ES8000 the other day and the issue has been getting progressively worse. At this point it is impossible to watch anything on this set. I took a video of the screen flickering/flashing/ghosting and I am not sure if those are even the right terms to describe what the unit is doing. essentially, only the image being displayed coming into the unit on the HDMI ports flash/flicker. When the menu overlay is opened, or Smart Hub is opened, only the image coming in from an HDMI input has an issue. Similarly, the Test Image through the Self-Diagnosis does not show any issues either.

My first thought was a receiver/original device/cable issue. However, I have used multiple, including additional brand new HDMI cables, removed the receiver from the chain, and used all of the HDMI ports on the back of the unit and the issue occurs in every circumstance.

I am assuming at this point that the inputs or the boards the inputs are on is going bad, however i have yet to open it up again and check. I have replaced the power supply board and ribbon cable twice in this unit, which to me is absolutely ridiculous given that I have only had it for close to 3 1/2 years. I understand things break, but this is a bit much for such an expensive purchase.

As I do not yet have enough posts to post a link, I will include the video code from YouTube: v=sIlmrf0nS2Q

If there is a better way to present that video for everyone I would be glad to do that as well. Thanks for any help in advance.

I also took a couple screenshots of the video to show here. The flashing happens very fast so it is not easy to catch it in a still image, but the below shows what the screen flashes quickly to - it's so quick you can't really see the image clearly when it happens live but still frame shows it here.
