The repair man is coming tomorrow to fix my new F8500 that has already failed. Does anyone have any burning questions to ask an authorized samsung repairman while I've got his ear for a bit?

For giggles ask some questions you know the answer to and see what he says. I suspect you'll find he's not that knowledgeable.

I think a picture of a dark scene would be interesting though. that should really show the difference.


I do enjoy a good comparison photo though. this was my fav when I got the f8500(the one on top obviously)


even overexposed the blacks were impressive

The top one appears to be crushing blacks. Notice the lapels on the women. Top one, you can barely see, the bottom one, it's obvious to see. Skin tone on bottom looks more realistic, while top looks orange. Something seems off with the top photo. That one is obvious. She is a red head, and red heads have extremely fair complexion. Again, quite obvious.

I think i had the GT50 set to "warm 2", which was causing that, i believe, i normally keep it on warm 1 or less.. I;m assuming that the phrase "crushing blacks" means that all the detail within the black image are gone? Yes, i noticed that you can see more detail in the f8500's brighter blacks then the gt50's darker ones, but even with that occurring, it still kind of looks better. lol.. Any great picture settings would greatly be appreciated,, just so i can do a few more final comparisons between the 2 sets to see whether or not i keep the f8500..

Sorry, I didn't mean to sound arrogant like I did in my post. Both pics are very good. I would take either one over an LED.

If you're using CNET's calibration settings for your 8500, double check the 10p white balance setting. The calibrator meant to turn it "OFF". In his settings list, it shows "ON". Make sure yours is "off".

Taking a look at your picture, I agree with the others, your GT50 looks like it is "off" by crushing the blacks. This means that you are losing all of the detail which you do see (details) in the F8500.. You can get the same effect by turning on "black detail" for the F8500, but again you'll begin to lose details in the black areas, and this is generally looked at as a "no no". What it comes down to is finding a picture that you're happy with, which doesn't necessarily mean an accurate one. There is an F8500 settings thread that can be found here (F8500 Recommended Settings Thread.....) This is the thread where more than a few of the owners have posted what they are using. In the end though you may just need to adjust to something that makes you happy, which may mean setting something that is totally different than what others have.

Just got my F8500 delivered today

Are there any settings I need to adjust for the first 200 hours or so? I Have it in standard right now with cell light and contrast turned down? I do have a question about using the smart remote. I do not want the smart remote controlling my Dish Hopper box, is there away where I could stop this from happening? I was thinking if I didn't hook the IR Blaster up then it wouldn't control it, but it does. Is there a way to check on the number of hours you have on the set?

So to be clear - the f8500 is the set on top, and the GT bottom?

To me, the top set is clearly better - deeper blacks, higher contrast, and better colors.

no, I've never had a gt50, that was the other poster. this was a comparison shot of the f8500 on day one, no calibration set to 'movie' default and my older Samsung b530 that was 'calibrated' as best I could.


there's no way the b530 ever stood a chance, but I liked the shot because it validated my decision to buy the f8500 and that I wasn't crazy for thinking my old plasma had terrible black levels.

So I spoke a bit too soon about no buzzing at all. When I open the TV's browser and the screen goes to white I can hear a medium buzz, But as soon as I got to a web page the buzzing ceases, and it's still the only audible buzz I've encountered.

I'm glad it only happens in that one particular instance. If that buzzing was constant it could get annoying. Do some people's 8500 sets buzz that much all of the time? That would suck.

As far as screen flickering goes - I can't detect anything hat even resembles anything like that. But then again, I've had another plasma for a few years and it's never bothered me in any way so maybe I can't see it.

I see what you're saying about the "black detail" setting.. Thanks for the link!

It was on off, thanks! Cnet's settings were horrendous, i did a default picture settings reset, then changed it a bit and the picture got way better.. I think David K needs a new pair of bifocals

Don't be silly, I didn't take it that way.. I really need to stop watching 2 tv's at once to do comparison tests, it's driving me nuts. lol I was 100% happy with the gt50 (PQ wise), but i need it to be a 60" instead of a 55" and there are no gt50's left at 60" anywhere.. I just picked up a used f8500 and a practically new vt60 60" and am deciding which one to hang up. I really dont want to use the VT60, because i had one last year and wasn't thrilled with it, but at least i know what to expect..

I got the black level is a decent level now.. I actually like it kept at "darker". Now I'm just wondering if i could get the reds to be a little bit "redder" The red in spiderman's mask may look a bit over saturated in the picture, but while watching it live, it looks extremely pleasing to my eye..

Agreed. I'm pretty sure you'll find that he's a troubleshooter / parts swapper. Most of them are that way, perhaps you get the rare guy that is not only the technician but also takes an interest in the job as a hobby as well. Those individuals tend to know a lot more because they care to know.

+ this. My 7 yr old Panasonic plasma buzzes loudly when there is a white or very bright screen, it doesn't do this normally. So I definitely second the notion that if it's only noticeable when the screen is white or very bright this is likely normal. If it's always buzzing for no particular reason, that would tend to be more abnormal. I don't notice my F8500 buzzing at all from seating distance, where as my older Panasonic Plasma was very noticeable during bright scenes.

yeah, you should be able to. switch it to warm2 if it's not there already. but that will likely make it TOO warm. but you should have more luck adjust the color(start with just the 2pt controls) started from the warm2 setting.

I don't experience any flickering, at least to the naked eye but in terms of buzz, every plasma buzzes and it really depends on where you live in terms of how loud it buzzes. Try this test, make sure you're sitting at normal distance directly in front of your F8500 then turn your head parallel to the TV so your ear is facing the panel. You may hear a constant buzz. It's minimal but it's constant. Everybody's hearing will vary but this particular test has had the same outcome for others here as well.

Now, my Panny GT50 buzzes but only when on a white screen as you mentioned earlier but when it goes to a white screen it buzzes loud enough to make me think something is wrong with my DirecTV line but it disappears right when the screen goes dark again. In contrast my F8500 is much more silent when showing a white screen. With Plasma YMMV.

That was already on the warm 2 setting.. I'll try the color controls next.. as if stands now I feel the skin tones are a little on the pale side.. I'd like to get them somewhere at least halfway closer to what the gt50
's are. thanks!

Try the "Flesh Tone" setting in Advanced picture settings.

I'm not able to hear any games character dialogues through my tv speakers while playing my ps3 , I can hear the background music and sounds such as door opening and shots fired from guns but I just can't hear any character dialogues.

I've changed the setting to tv speaker and tried all other settings like voice clarity on etc but I can't hear the dialogues.

But when my tv is hooked to my receiver I can hear the dialogues, music and everything. Anyone else here face the same issue in the same scenario ?

But when my tv is hooked to my receiver I can hear the dialogues, music and everything. Anyone else here face the same issue in the same scenario ?
Seems like the PS3 is outputting 5.1 or 7.1 LPCM and your TV only accepts the L&R channel so everything that should be in the center channel is missing.

I spent about two hours last night adjusting settings to suit my eyes, and it looks fantastic. I'd go right to the "movie" preset and work from there.

I finally got the mute-7-3-7-enter thing to work and it shows the panel having 9 hours on it, so by my calculations I am the first person to watch this unit for an extended period. Maybe wishful thinking, but to my eyes it's opened up visually even in this short time.

This. I've had that problem when I was experimenting with my PS3's audio.

Go into the PS3 menu and change the sound settings.
