(the picture instead is perfect), about 7 minutes from the time to tv is switched on and then, the same thing for every 3 minutes and 30-35 seconds.
This issue is very regular, so i suspect a firmware bug (the last 1141 is already instelled), but i'm not very sure and could be my tv set defective also.
I already done a tv reset
Someone found the same problem? Or someone can try to use component input?

Thanks a lot
I do some other tests and this issue involves all the analog input: AV input and RGB input.
So if some other owner can test this can confirm if this issue is not only for me
Thanks

Sorry if I'm coming off rude but I'm planning on getting this set or the OLED from LG. I really don't want to drop $4k on a 55".
I should have noted I Have the 65 inch Canadian version. I really hope you luck out and get a proper working panel. For $4k can't you get the 65 inch version? As far as local dimming , I don't have a local dimming control that's within my control. It's controlled by the TV. It's not an option I can turn on or off. I've tried everything, believe me. The panel is diseased. When viewing bright or neutral scenes, the picture is excellent. That's the shame of it. Oh well.

Are you sure you dont have a smart led feature ? It should be in the picture options. I have it on my tv. On the back of my panel the sticker says something about Samsung America NJ , but then it says it was distribute by Samsung Canada. I dont know if the model I got is a Canadian version or American one. I got this panel as a replacement for my f8000 by Samsung. Does the sticker at the back of your tv say the same?

Hello,

I too am having auto dimming issues with this set (H8000, Australian version) and I do not have the option to disable in the menus.

As stated by others, bright scenes look great however as soon as a dark scene (The Last of Us) is displayed, auto dimming goes crazy and makes it hard to see anything.

My old set, I was able to adjust the white balance by lowering it and turning up the brightness setting, thus passing the auto dimming threshold and tricking the set into thinking the brightness did not require auto dimming.

Has anyone figure out how to trick this model yet?

Cheers.

The $4k was for the LG OLED that's 55''. I read some recent news about burn-in though. I'm not in the mood to spend that much and then baby it. Are you referring to auto dimming or local? Auto dimming will dim the entire picture on darker scenes to give the effect of deeper blacks. There's usually no setting to change if your TV is equipped with it. Local Dimming dims just the darker sections, or zones, of the picture, leaving the rest of the scene alone. It's usually referred to as Smart LED on Samsung Sets and there's a high/low setting.


Anyone with a 65" H8000 have a TS01 Panel or are they only TD01 Panels? Do the H8000 Owners with clouding/uniformity problems have U.S. Versions with Local Dimming activated or is it just bad luck?

I don't have a "Smart LED" feature on this TV. Watching a widescreen film with the black bars on top and bottom is maddening. The cloudy whites on all corners and bottom of screen takes your attention away from the film.

I have a H8000, 65", with a TD02 panel. No problems with picture yet. Not sure what clouding or ghosting is. Only issue I have is that my surround sound receiver doesn't pass 1080p or 3D thru the hdmi so I have the picture going direct from the sources to the TV thru hdmi and the audio going to my receiver with optical. The issue I have now is the fluctuation of audio from my Comcast STB when I go to a HD channel with Dolby Digital sound. Center channel seems to fluctuate. May have to get a new Pioneer receiver. TV though is great. Had it since July 17th and only thing I've done is put it in Movie mode and turn off the soap opera affect.

Clouding will look like white/grey blotches anywhere on the screen. Usually only evident at night with the lights out and on a darker movie/scene.

Is a tso2 a bad panel? I do see some clouding on a blank black screen. Is it worth exchanging to get a better panel? I purchased it from best buy. Also the picture while watching sports is not very good at all.

Turn local dimming on high and see if that helps. TS02 is a Samsung Panel and not sure what the difference between TS01 and TS02 are though. Actually, the H8000 only has Samsung Panels(TS01/02, TD01/02).

The picture isn't clear. I try messing with the picture settings to get it to look better but it gets worse. I'm a newbie to samsung tvs, I'm coming from a 2013 m series.

Don't have that option. I don't understand why they would make some options available on the American sets and not on the Canadian sets. Are you all running the TV's latest firmware?

Only my second post so please excuse any flubs!

I purchased my 55H8000 at Best Buy the end of July for $1,999.98 and I probably wouldn't have paid $2,700. After reading lots of posts here I did go in thinking I'd probably buy the 55H7150 but watching both for a while pushed me to the 8000 even at an additional $400.

When I told the sales rep at Best Buy that I wanted a Samsung panel he had no idea that some sets didn't use Samsung panels, nor did the guy that delivered and set it up. Happily it came with a TS02.

I've been without a TV for 14 years and finally recycled the massive, 225 pound Sony monitor, and old electronics to make way for a new setup. I only watch DVDs and Blu-Ray movies on it. Love the picture. I did turn the backlight down to 10.

I think the sound on the set is pretty good for a TV but it is weak in the low end, no shaking the walls. I remembered that my BD player has audio out jacks and one of them is a sub-woofer output so i plugged in my Velodyne sub-woofer built in 1991. Much nicer. I had to put a new foam surround on it as it self destructed on my first movie, Ender's Game. The foam was rotted. Found a repair kit at a company in Southern California. Cost $40 with tax and postage. Sounds great.

Looking to get a Marantz NR1605 for the time being, as the budget is a bit tight after the cost of the TV ;-)

Regards, Ken (Retired)
Denon AVR4520CI; 9.1 setup (Hope to be 9.2 soon)
Samsung 55H8000 TS02; Samsung BD-F7500 (2014)
Klipsch R-12SW Subwoofer (Looking to add SVS PC2000)
LRC & RS = Celestion 5s & 3s; Front height and side surrounds = Polks

Fortunately ;^) here in Silicon Valley we are in the midst of a multi-year drought so my roof can wait!

Lets see... according to a climate type person on the radio recently noted that 10 year droughts are not uncommon here and studies show five 100 year droughts and one 500 year.

So, I may never have to fix my roof!!!

The power of positive thinking or maybe just self delusion :-)

Hope you are able to do both soon dreadnok89.

You should be good with that blu-ray player. Right now I have the Panasonic DMP-BDT500, but might need to replace it soon as I'm starting to get strange artifacts on the right side of my screen on certain movies. Thought at first it was the movies, but tried a friends player and didn't get it. Let me know how you like the Sammy blu-ray player. Might look into that one myself. Let me know how well it handels 3D as well, as that is something I do like and one of the reasons I went with the bd-t500.
Hi Joseph,

This is a late reply but I just recently signed on with AVS Forums.

I watched Prometheus in 3D on my BD-F7500 and thought it did pretty well. The glasses bother some folks eyes or cause headaches but I did alright. I remember 3D movies in the 1950s and never had a problem with them either.

I also tried the 2D > 3D option and it added a bit of depth but not as much as a 3D disk.

The glasses are a bit like sunglasses and make the picture darker which I don't care for.
