***8 Blinking Lights Fixed***

My problem with the Kuro is fixed. I can now swap inputs and turn the tv off and on without any problems. If anyone has this problem there is a guy you can send in your main board and I/O board for repair. Here is a link to his ebay ad Clicky

I'm all set until oled tech matures.

Saprano,
Pure can look a bit murky and dull with OTA sometimes (No doubt a lot is dependent on the broadcast) . The settings you suggested bring the picture out a bit more I think. What are you using for ISF DAY and ISF NIGHT as I want to try those too. Are you using ISF AUTO? Also, What are your settings for Vol YKNOFS1 D, YKNOFS3 D, YKNOFS4 D, AND YKNOFSA D? Also what is your RST P at? My settings are YKNOFS1 D 86, YKNOFS3 D 96, YKNFS4 D 143 and ny RST P is 031.

Thanks much

General question for you guys. I wasn't happy at all to find a few small scratch/ abrasion marks (very slight and only noticable in the light) on the bezel . Don't know if someone carelessly cleaned the TV with a dirty rag but I am very picky and clean about my TV and have kept it immaculate for years. I am assuming the bezel is an acrylic material, so the best way to approach any type of scratch/ blemish removal would be to buff it out with a purpose designed polish compound and clothes? Any input would be welcome.

Thanks

I posted this a while back and worked well. There are some threads to search out that might have more info. HTH.

I would first try a the Meguiar's NXT Generation® Tech Wax® 2.0 and it give it a few coats. With a good amount of pressure on the first application and then a couple more applications with less pressure you'll get rid of the surface scratches. If that does not work you can try hitting it with the Novus and then finish up with the wax. I think most light swirl marks will come out with the wax. By the way the wax is awesome for your car too.

I made a thread about it already, but I've got an opportunity to buy a PRO-141FD (60") for $850. I had a Kuro 500M a few years ago, but ended up selling it (mistake).

Should I go for the 141FD? From what I gather, the picture quality isn't quite as good as the 500M, but it's still quite good. Second place, perhaps?

I'm also considering the LG EC9300 OLED, but price and other problems are holding me back currently.

I'd like to echo Eric. I had the same problem, went to the same guy on eBay and a week or so later - my 111FD is back in business! Well worth the money.

Anyone have the issue where the Home Menu and Tools buttons on the remote do not respond? I can change HDMi sources, volume, etc. but get nothing when I press the Home Menu or Tools buttons.

What settings did i give you? I have verizon which is suppose to be the best broadcast signal. Pure can look really good on some content. Other times it's as you said, murky. But it's not the kuros fault, it's just showing the source.

I don't have the ISF modes. I was suppose to unlock them. Don't know why i still haven't.

My voltage settings are

Vol SUS 128
Vol offset 068
Vol RSTP 018
Vol XPOFS1 105
Vol XPOFS2 063
Vol YKNOFS1D 086
Vol YKNOFS3 096
Vol YKNOFS4 143
Vol YKNNOFSA 128

I hate glossy products they get scratched so easily. My bezel is scratched too. Can't see it unless natural light is shined on it. Anyone who says their bezel isn't scratched is not looking hard enough.

Quick update...

Purchased a 50" Kuro a few years ago, and about two months ago I found an one-owner nearly unused 151FD. Purchased it, had it calibrated and at first I didn't get very thrilled about the results. But as recommended by the tech, I waited a couple of weeks to 'get used' to it and he was right. Now, no other mode looks better than the calibrated isf-Night. My take on this, if you own a Kuro, no matter what model, calibration is a must. My 60" 151FD Kuro is from Jan/2010 and the picture is IMHO still unparalleled by any other set today.

Thank Saprano!

Your RSTP is lower than mine by 13 clicks, but all else is the same. Would recommend the ISF modes. ISF Day will give quite a bit more pop while looking 'right'. Given the inevitable drift that these sets go through over their life, I wonder if it might be wise to buy calibration gear and learn to do it myself?

Saprano is that RSTP of 018 what the TV was set at or did you lower it to that?
