I just have to ask what cable service do you have??
I have the 857U (70" ) and have Dish,, just love the picture and sound is thru 7.1 surround stereo, ( yahama). I do have a problem with one channel ( can't remember which one now,,) but only the one,, sound is off a little..make sure you use HDMI #2 or one of the other ones,, do not use #1,, ( I don't have this problem,, but some do with #1)..

My 60" set is almost nearing a year of ownership and I had a cloudy set - while browsing Netflix Saturday night was deciding what to watch my tv rebooted - when it came back up most of the cloudy spots disappeared - I immediately checked the backlight level and it was still at 0 STD. All other picture settings remained the same. Anyone have an idea of what may have happened?

This could not of happened at a better time - I was debating on purchasing a 70" Sony set but it get bad reviews for 3D so definitely sticking with the Sharp since the 3D is super on it. Just wishing it was a larger set but the more I debate about it - it seems gaining 9.5 inch of screen is not significantly larger that I would notice at home - just in the showroom. I think @ home I would definitely notice an 80" set. But, can better deal with the 60" 857 now that the major annoying cloudy spots are gone.

Flashing Fault Code - Factory Reset?

I have a lc70le857u (purchased 4/2013), tonight when I tried to turn it on I am getting a flashing pattern from the power indicator light and the display stays off. When the TV is unplugged and then plugged back in, the power indicator light on the TV is normal solid for a couple minutes, then brightly flashes 2 long/slow followed by 5 short/quick, then repeats pattern.

Any guidance would be appreciated, thanks!

- Dan

Got a new replacement tv after only 4 days after it was cleared that it was a dead/stuck pixel in the first set. (Great service from the scandinavian distributor)
No more defective pixels and now I'm really happy with the black levels!
Can see some clouding but think a wipe with an soft cloth will solve that.
 
So now the set is mounted to the wall and i have nothing to complain about! =)
 

That is a unique AV CAbinet/Shelves. Can you share how they are made or where you bought them

Are those Ascend Towers or Salk Songtowers as your Front speakers??

I lowered my 70LE857 backlight setting from -8 to -14 and it appears while watching football that the blur has increased when the ball is thrown. Does the backlight effect motion blur? My 240HZ setting is unchanged.
Thanks for any input.

does anyone else have issues with netflix on the Sharp LC80LE8857U. The sound sucks on mine. No 5.1 and it is so low and flat with no bass and I have a great SUB.

A change in backlight doesn't really affect anything other than the overall light output of the TV. For watching sports, I recommend you turn Motion Enhancement off.


How come you have your backlight set so low, by the way? What are your other settings/mode? After calibration, my backlight is at -4 as the lowest possible, and I only set it to that when I watch with no ambient light. I mostly have it at STD (0) and sometimes set it to +10 during the day.

I get 5.1 DD from the Netflix app on the TV. This is through my receiver connected via HDMI and using ARC (Audio Return Channel). Make sure the TV is set to Bitstream instead of PCM.

I watch in low light levels and previously had a plasma so I'm agreeable to watch at lower backlight levels to achieve darker blacks. I use the standard setting with brightness at -2, sharpness at 3, advanced contrast on, 240hz setting, and the remaining settings at 0. I have not had a calibration yet.


Thanks for the input!

VBB, finally turned off Motion Enhancement which solved the blur. It darkened the picture so I brought my backlight to -8 and brightness to 0. The picture is awesome and football looks better than on the plasma I had.


Thanks for the suggestion!
