Has anyone ever tried loosening screws in the back of your f8000 to reduce flashlighting in the corners?
Yeah man, I'm thinking about returning my f8000 for a f8500 or trying a replacement, but Im scared. I got it from Amazon so replacements with them are easy and fast, but the only thing that seems to be wrong with it is minor flashlighting in a corner you can only see at night on content that doesnt have those movie black bars. Those black bars really make a difference and elminate it with the cinema black feature, Im guessing
Is there a way to do a vertical banding test or download a test from an app on the f8000?
Also whats the best way to test it. I feel like Im getting it on GTA 5 when I look at the sky and move side to side I have 65 inch model.
Alsow whats the comparison on vertical banding vs Plasma even a 65 inch
Honestly, I dont know if its vertical banding, when I google vertical banding it seems to be what it is. I just notice kind of different widths of vertical lines in the sky (varies from 1 1/2 inch to half an inch) on some video games, especially when I move the screen (aka when its not still)
*Yeah im definitely seeing banding, but Im afraid to replace the TV due to it having really no other issues. Is there any thing in the menu that cant diminish it. I know its prevelant in big TVs. I reffered to this thread: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1502067/samsung-vertical-banding-issue-for-led-tvs ... and one post says sharp make sure there is no vertical banding which is so true because I switched from a sharp to this samsung. All I do is game, but I wanted something to watch movies with and having a big Sharp was just terrible with the flashlighting, trying 5 different replacements.
God, tv's are bothersome
Its quite subtle and my camera isnt good enough to capture it.
Im returning this TV. I'm just going to wait for the 2014 TV reviews and dish out extra cash or maybe go back to the Sharp 650U which is just great for gaming but had flashlighting problems.
Before I leave you guys. Can I have your opinions on which manufacturers are known for vertical banding on their panels compared to others, I cant find much information on this?
For gaming, clouding and flash-lighting isn't a big deal, but banding is.
I issued a replacement instead of a return. This TV is really good and deserves a 2nd chance especially when I gave the 650U by sharp 5 -- for now you guys are stuck with my dumb questions!
Well, as I understand vertical banding is an artifact thing, and plasmas are known for screen uniformity, right?
So wouldnt plasmas also have the same chance of possessing vertical banding as a LCD LED tv?
Don't know about any of that. I know that my issues with vertical banding were pretty severe and highly noticeable. They were directly related to the LED portion of the TV, not the LCD panel itself apparently. My replacement should be here tomorrow morning, so, I am hopeful to get a good one in the LED lottery. I have been encouraged by others in this forum thread that such a 65F8000 exists with no vertical banding, so fingers crossed. I also hope this one doesn't have as bad corner flashlighting issues.
Still, as I said earlier, vertical banding, in particular doesnt have anything to do with screen uniformity, correct?
Vertical banding is an artifact on your screen where like uniformity has to do with backlight's spreading across the screen in the appropriate way.
I was just wondering if plasmas are more proned to the vertical banding artifacts
I just ordered the 60" F8000 and very excited for it to get delivered next week.
Does anyone have a preference between mounting flat or on an articulating arm? I am going to have it installed on a plaster stud-free wall, so not sure if having an arm would be a good idea.
Can anyone on here confirm that their F8000 Tv can output DD5.1 through OPTICAL? I am seeing a few people report that with the recent update (EU/AU v1118/1119) it is, but i haven't gotten a confirmation...
I am only asking as I want the Sonos Playbar setup :D
What update are you on?
