1. when TV shows black screen, i see lot of clouding about the edges. i read in some posts that after calibration it can be reduced. Should i return this set or can it be reduced? i can see that only when i switch off all lights in my room.
I've had my 7600 for about 10 days now. I have a small amount of edge light bleed along the top right edge and the left edge near the bottom. Like you, it is only visible when the screen is blank (no signal) and the room is dark. Interestingly, with the PS3 hooked up and loading a game there is a blank screen, but NO light bleed present. This leads me to believe the only time the edge light bleed is visible is when there is no signal on the screen. I've looked at content with night scenes or dark scenes looking for the light bleeding through but it DOESN'T HAPPEN. Therefore, I'm not going to get all worked up about it. Frankly, it seems there is a lot of concern on AVS forums about this "problem", that really isn't a problem, unless you plan on watching content without a signal on your set.
2. youtube app behaves mysteriously. i search for some 1080 blue ray rip from youtube, while playing 1st one on the list, it got struck. i moved on to next one, it played the song, but when moving towards end, it stopped abruptly and went on to next one. for next one(3rd) it said, video is not available, where as i can play the video in my laptop. then i went back to 2nd song in the list, now for 2nd also it says video not available where as i just played it in TV 2 minutes back. after that all videos were showing as "not available". please let me know what to do here.
3. motion flow is enabled in youtube, how to disable it?
I haven't played around with the YouTube app yet. I didn't buy this TV for the apps, consider them to be a nice bonus, but I can see if you utilize this app a lot it would be annoying. Can't comment on motion flow, except to say there should be a way to adjust that via the Settings menu.
4. the HD contents are not as crisp as how it displays in samsung TVs @ store. i played avatar trailer from youtube, the colors looks faded and dull. may be my setting are not correct. i calibrated to above setting, but still not that happy. Does anyone have any other calibrated settings for this TV?
Realize that Samsungs are inherently more vivid and more brighter than most brands. I actually consider it "fake" looking. The guy at Best Buy admitted that they set the Samsungs to brighter settings.
I played around with the settings under Expert1 until I got what I thought was a great picture. Surprisingly, the settings are quite similar to the ones listed in BSoares' post (above.) I did have H-sharpness and V-sharpness settings at 30, which is in the middle of the two settings listed above (they had 25 and 50). The difference in picture quality is quite noticeble.
My technique was to go through all the factory pre-set picture settings and write them down in a grid format. Example: Columns labeled Standard, Cinema, Game, Vivid, and then rows listing Backlight, Contrast, Brightness, Sharpness, etc. I then wrote down comments regarding the strengths and weaknesses of those settings. Then I entered the Expert mode and started playing around, tweaking each setting until I got what I thought was a great picture. Use a consistent, good source for this. I happened to use a live baseball game on ESPN. Again, the difference in PQ is absolutely noticeable. I had tweaked the settings of the Standard settings to my liking, and I got a fairly decent looking picture. But when I switch back and forth between my tweaked Standard settings and my defined Expert1 settings there is a huge difference.
