Instability after 1200 firmware?

I have a 55" 2013 model (sorry I don't have the specific model # available right now). A week or two ago I saw a firmware update available and applied it. It may be a coincidence and some other factor, but apparently since then I can only watch Plex or Netflix for between about 20-50 minutes without it locking up in some manner. Sometimes Netflix just starts buffering and fails, sometimes Plex just stops responding to the remote control, sometimes the TV just turns off. Blurays from an external (Samsung) player play fine all the way through. We don't use any broadcast TV channels right now so i can't speak to that.

This is on a wired network connection, and the network seems otherwise healthy. If I plug my Chromecast into the TV, I can watch Netflix or Plex all day long.

I see a few mentions of similar issues on this thread, but if it were as predominant a bug for everyone as it is to me, I think the thread would be blowing up. Appreciate any feedback.

Thanks,
Jesse

Hello,

Just got the 46'' 2013 UF6350 model and still trying to optimize the picture quality. A few questions for this forum, and I would greatly appreciate any feedback!

1. I have manually downloaded on my laptop a zip file of the 1200 firmware update. How can I update my TV? (flash-drive?). Is the update a necessary improvement?

2. Picture quality already looks amazing. However, in darker scenes (either during Bluray playback or gaming on my PS4). I sometimes notice a veeeery faint vertical black line on the center right of the display. I am pretty sure that's how the TV panel is (it's not something that needs to be repaired) but are there settings I can optimize to reduce this effect? It can mostly go away under Dynamic Settings but I would prefer not to have those because I feel a lot of image detail is lost due to the high contrast levels.

Thanks!

As far as the firmware update is concerned that is done internally by choosing menu, support, then software update.

Done with the 60" F6300....

Hello,

Well, as with many people who come here looking for information about new TV's, I find myself back here again.

I bought a UN60F6300 early last year. It took about a month an a half to notice the first issue.

The TV had developed 9 dead pixels almost in the center of the screen. I was able to outright replace the TV due to some nice sales associates at Sears. At the same time the manager had allowed me to buy the 5 yr. warranty on this TV. A month or so after the fact.

The replacement TV took about 3-4 months to develop its issues. The speakers started vibrating badly in Anything above 8 volume in HD.. and to make matters worse, the screen developed a large back spot that had increased in size to about 12" across by 8-10" in high right above the Samsung logo.

The panel was separating, as I was told my the Tech from Sears that came out.

Well, they decided to replace the panel and the speakers. That didn't work.

Amazingly enough, the New panel, out of the box, had a black mark very, very similar to the 1st, almost dead center of the screen and about 1/2 inch in size. (This makes 1 TV with dead pixels, 1 TV with a giant back spot, and 1 replacement panel with a near identical spot but smaller - 3 panels total all are SHARP panels. The Tech said SHARP panels have a lot of issues.) And 60" panels from Samsung are SHARP panels.

*Sigh*

After about a month and a half, the TV was deemed a lemon and not worth investing any more money in. But not before they came back to replace the 2 boards on the back of the tv to try and fix the audio (as I was told). It did not fix the problem. That was repair #3 and the 4th was to be scheduled to replace the panel and the speakers, yet again.

Sears needs 3 trips out to replace something under warranty and a 4th repair scheduled before they will give back your money.

Well, I got my money back as a credit last night and I'm here to find it's replacement. I still have 4 years of warranty left on whatever TV I choose.

It's replacement in 2014 is the 60H6350 but I'm thinking that I might go up a series or so to see if I can elude these issues. Maybe they are made better?

I am going to stay with Samsung, as I like their TV's and staying LED. I was thinking the 60" of the H7150 line. Is there a line between the H6400 and the H7150 that Sears sells? Right now the screen is matte but I do like the fact that the 7150's have the ultra clear panels..

So, any thoughts?

Thanks for reading.

Justyn

Same thing here. 55" 2013 model with WH04 samsung panel. I use the netflix app and the built in DLNA receiver to view movies from my XBMC server. My netflix shows usually start cutting out after around 1 to 1.5 hours of playing. I have to reboot the TV and resume where it left off. Same with the XBMC connection.

This was present in the 2 firmware's before 1200, I thought upgrading to 1200 would fix it. It's did help a bit, but the problem continues. It's like there's a memory leak in the apps.

Hello, I have a 32F6300 that I use to play video games both with my PS4 and my PC. Could anyone of you be so kind to direct me to a place where I can find picture settings for these display to get the best results PQ wise? So far I have found the suggested settings of the site lcdtvbuyingguide http://reviews.lcdtvbuyingguide.com/...-settings.html BUT would like to know if there are better settings out there. Thank you very much!!
