It should just slide back to the left and off the screen but sometimes the whole screen will flutter, like the picture can't refresh fast enough. This sound like a hardware problem to me.
I really like the set but these 2 issues will have to be fixed or I won't be keeping it. I'm not sure if Sams has any left to exchange the set or if I should go through Vizio.
Any suggestions on getting the blue push down would be appreciated.
In most of my watching, I had not noticed the blue cast until I watched a movie during the evening. During the day, and for most of the TV shows, I hadn't noticed it.
I noticed the blue cast during a foggy scene in Pirates - Stranger Tides. I recall I turned down the backlight to around 50 I think, and turned off Adaptive luma, and Color Enhancement. Left on the Smart Dimming. I thought I had wrote this down but I couldn'tfind it. I made those changes pretty quick as wife and I were watching the movie.
I'm trying out some other settings now. I won't be able to check the Pirates scene until next week, but right now I'm using the following settings:
This is on Custom Pic Mode:
Backlight 53 (could be higher)
For Color Temp I used Custom Color mode:
left everything at defaults EXCEPT:
Green Offset - 110
Blue Offset - 90
Mostly in the Advanced Pic I leave most of settings off, but I did turn Enhanced Color back on, Smart Dimming on, and Film mode on auto.
I did the Basic settings using AVS calibration patterns, BUT the color temp settings I did using some scenes from a show that I saw the blue in. After adjusting the temps, I went back in and reset the basic to the values above (the only one that changed was bright - it had been at 53).
The color temp settings are pretty subjective on my part. I haven't visually checed in gray ramps yet. But they look pretty good to me so far. I want to check a few scenes (Equilibrium opening and Pirates Stranger Tides fog scene). I may make some more tweaks. Once I do, I may make these color temp changes in the Normal Color menu rather than the custom.
Jut my SUBJECTIVE approach. I'm pretty happy so far. If you have some comments or try some other things, post them here!
