Those with F8500, did you follow the instructions in the initial post or is there another post that's more geared towards our specific model?
Anyone had their's adjusted for years now and haven't run into any issues long term? Not sure if I wanna risk with overvolting but may wanna give undervolting a try. I have some experience overclocking/overvolting computer parts but nothing on a hardware level and they're not $4000 TV set that I plan on keeping for at least a decade.
should not make any difference with DSE. MAY(but likely not) help with pink tinting. may help with buzzing since generally speaking the more electricity flowing, the louder the buzz. that is assuming your tv is functioning 'properly' and doesn't have some other cause of the buzzing.
calibrate afterwards. it's not going to be a huge change, but why wouldn't you calibrate after?
I did not follow the initial instructions, but the ones posted a couple pages back.
I've had mine done for a few months, nothing has changed since the day I made the adjustments. I've always had a bit of the magenta 'speckles' under specific situations, but they don't show up with 99% of content, and i'll take the improved blacks AND reduced brightness(this tv is so hard to reduce brightness without messing up something else) any day.
I'm not sure if anybody turns up the voltage? that would increase the MLL, and be a terrible idea. I have my voltages all the way down, as far as they'll go. I was a little worried it might be too extreme at first, but it seems to be just fine.
that being said, if you just bought yours, the new ones don't seem to need, or react as well to voltage tweaks as the earlier ones. mine is from april 2013, and had much higher MLL than the 2014 models tend to have. after my tweaks, the MLL is no better than the 2014 ones either. mine now seems about on par though.
