So I returned a Samsung 46" 70000 LED tv and got the PN59D550 Plasma a few days ago. I hook it up to my Sony BDP-S770 and notice that when I popped in a 3D blu-ray the screen would be green and blue and look like a when a component cable's not properly connected like the green is in the blue etc. I am using a hi speed hdmi cable. I returned the tv thinking the tv is defective. I noticed that in the picture menu the 3D is greyed out (the 1st option) I can not adjust depth as it's greyed out. So I tell the guy this and he finally lets me exchange it. I do so only to find I have the same issue, so I try my playstation 3 and it works the screen isn't all out of wack. It's my player that my tv does not get along with. So I go out and buy a Sony BDP-S780 and it the picture looks normal but the 3D lacks depth and the 3D is greyed out. I do a search and see a similar issue with the same tv but a different blu player. His solution was to buy a Samsung BDP-S6500. I exchanged the 780 for the Samsung BDD6700ZA.
Is the 3D option supposed to be greyed out in the picture menu (3D is off etc)? I can press 3D on the remote and do 2d-3d etc. The 3D lacks depth and I have a hard time believing it's actually on. If it's normal and that's what 3d on this tv looks like than I am going to have to return it. I own the PN50c680 so I know what 3D can look like. Any answers or advice would be greatly appreciated. Btw I am using a Onkyo 3d receiver, I even went straight to the tv from the blu-ray player and still the 3d option was greyed out.
