First, there are no settings provided.

Trust me, I had my panel replaced and they were very different.

Edit: to add, everyone could / should be using a well known calibration disc to get the contrast, brightness, sharpness, color, tint, to the best possible setting.
But settng the white balance, CMS, and color tone requires individual calibration with proper equipment. No doubt about it.


One more comment about Chad.

As a DIY calibrator, you eventually figure out that the most limiting element of calibration is your equipment.

As far as I can tell, Chad is the only professional calibrator on AVS that's equipped with a Jeti 1211 to profile his field meter. What this means is that he's using a reference spectro that works well on plasma displays and that will yield more accurate color than the array of colormeters and spectros that fall below the Jeti 1211. Many calibrators use a Klein K10A which is an excellent color meter but without a Jeti 1211 spectro or equivalent to profile it with for a plasma, doesn't deliver the level of accuracy that you are paying for.

So when you have a choice, be sure to hire the calibrator who not only knows what they're doing but has the equipment to perform a high quality calibration.

Chad left my place last night. Did video calibration on my 8500 and Audyseey Pro on audio. PM him and ask him his thoughts. He was pretty blown away with all results. Did what he had to do to get it right.

Going to run color slides for break in period... Any pop ups or anything need to be disabled? Don't want to risk burn in while I let these slides run all day.

Slideshow Settings:

Speed: Slow

Effects: Scroll (better than the default black bar effects)

On the Menu go into System then Screen Burn Protection, and turn off the screen saver (not sure if this helps, but can't hurt!)

then to play it safe, Do a power cycle (unplug the power cord for a minute then plug it back in, the settings should still be saved but double check for peace of mind.

Hey guys. Quick question. How long should I let my new tv warm up before powering it on? I got my first one delivered on 2/22/14 and the temp was like single digits. No brainer. Let it sit 24 hours. Supposed to be in the 50s here next Saturday. How long should i let it sit to allow for condensation? Tia!

One observation on the 64F8500: My original set had a pretty good buzz to it. Id say it has close to 200+ hours on it now and my wife says the buzz is gone. I had to get right up on it to hear it now.

Just an observation but the buzz seems to lessen after break in. Mine did anyway. A lot! YMMV.
pieandchips's Avatar pieandchips 08:13 AM 03-20-2014
^ If it's sat where it will be used the temp will be the same (or very close) to the temp around it and there won't be any condensation.
anakinskye's Avatar anakinskye 09:54 AM 03-20-2014
No not the original one. The new one.
pieandchips's Avatar pieandchips 10:21 AM 03-20-2014
^ You kind of lost me, but if it's a new one getting delivered then to be safe wait and let the unit acclimatise to your temp.
It could have been sitting somewhere very cold before coming to you. Just your common sense.

Great points, Jim.
pieandchips's Avatar pieandchips 12:26 PM 03-20-2014
Are the differences really noticeable by eye trained or untrained? Probably not unless you are able to perform a side by side comparison.
Don't get me wrong I'm all for attaining the best possible results but if there was such a marked difference I'm sure most other pros would invest in a Jeti too.

Kudos to Chad for doing so but those that have had pro cals by other respected calibrators with other types of meters, fret not, your cal is up there with the best of them.

In six months your TVs will have strayed off've perfect anyway...

You might get image retention, not burn in from that period of time.

--- Back when I got my first plasma, I remember waking up to the title menu of a DVD that was a still image and on the screen for like 8 hours. Put it on a all black screen, image was there as plain as day. Ran the unit on HBO for 4 hours, image was all gone........

Hey guys! Just got this tv and already love it. Quick question, i have everything running through a receiver but when i go to sound setting options and try to turn off the tv sound, my "receiver" option is grayed out and i only have to option for "tv" and "external"..

Any suggestions?

Thanks!!
tboe77's Avatar tboe77 09:57 PM 03-20-2014
Choose "external". That will disable the TV's speakers.

I'm not sure, but I think you'd only see the receiver option if you are using ARC (and would have to have Anynet enabled?). Anyway, I don't use ARC over HDMI. I just have an optical cable running from the TV out back to the receiver. That is how I've got mine set up and it works just great!

Like the Panasonic ZT ?

Yes and no. Yes like the zt because there are no internal reflections to deal with that could harm the picture. No not like the zt because the zt has the plasma panel bonded to the substrate and then the substrate is bonded to the second pane of glass that gives the zt that one sheet of glass design.

It's reLly suppose to eliminate any possible defeciencies brought upon by the second pane of glass.....it's as if there was no second pane of glass....so it's giving a picture just like the f8500 would or even a kuro

BUT the zt light filter may have been bonded differently to the tv which is why the filter is able to keep the blacks soo inky in bright rooms

I seem to have a quality control issue and contacted Samsung about my problem.

When viewing scenes with white backgrounds there is a very light magenta or purple vertical band on the right third of the screen, a lot of tv commercial's are presented like this.

Also if I display an all white slide it is noticeable as well.

They sent out a tech and he said my tv was normal, if the problem cant be seem with their test slide in the menu they wont do anything about it.

I'm wondering if anyone else has this particular problem.

Here are a couple of examples:



I can't exactly make out what you are seeing but it sounds like maybe some DSE ( dirty screen effect )or severe banding....
JimP 04:24 AM 03-21-2014
shenri,

I noticed in the photos that you are shooting at a downward angle.

Do you get the same if you're either even or shooting up at it?

We already know that the light filter does some strange things when you look down on the screen. What we don't know is if what you are seeing is only seen when looking down on the screen.

In your photos its also obvious that you were pretty close to the screen( keystone distortion). Back up and get even with the center of the screen and see what happens.

I have everything disabled on my Yam Z11 - no Anynet, CEC, ARC or whatever - AVR set to HDMI pass through
Sammy won't allow me to add the AVR either (don't care/don't want)

What AVR you using - always best to give info like that smile.gif
& Explain how is TV hooked to AVR
- HDMI 1 way?
- using a return channel?
- HDMI version 1.X ??

i don't even remember seeing a 'receiver' option, was this a new thing with one of the updates? i haven't checked it since i set it up last april.

thought though, as i'm connecting everything to the receiver, and then sending audio to the speakers and video to the tv, i would have it set to 'external' anyway, i'm thinking if you had all your sources connected directly to the tv, and then the digital audio out from the tv to a receiver, that might be the situation you'd use 'receiver'.

so,

TV- tv speakers will play audio that is input to tv
EXTERNAL- tv has nothing to do with audio at all, it acts solely as a 'monitor'. no audio in, no audio out
RECEIVER-tv acts like a receiver and controls which source is being displayed and heard, but outputs audio to an external speaker system.

No ARC Connection - No Receiver listing.
Using Optical Cable - No Receiver listing.
ARC Connected, and AVR set for ARC, then you'll see the Receiver listing.

Hmmm. With a Curved 65" UHD, maybe I'll now be able to install in my cabinet that only has room for a 60" Thin Bezeled unit. Stand inside, wings on the outside.
PN64F8500 will stay in the basement system. (Although the wife was wanting Bigger! - 78"?)
