not sure why this is an issue, but can you set it up again? just enter the wrong password

you should also be able to block it through your router's settings

So I got my 60" last week and only spent a little time with it. Definitely a buzz but it won't be noticeable if something actually being watched.

With his being my first plasma, is there a breakin period before the picture looks good. One thing I did notice was something that looked like close pixel response response time and a shimmering effect. So when I start Netflix, the black part of the start screen looks buzzy (my girlfriends cheap led looks much clearer). The same goes with any dark portion of a couple of shows....just kind of grainy almost staticy looking. I brought in my girlfriend and she said the same thing after comparing the picture to the current tv Also the when the option to select the normal account vs kids comes up, some of the pixels don't change to white right away and take a couple seconds.

I am guessing that this isn't typical.

No it's typical for the F8500 in particular..which has a noisier than average for plasma blacks (from dithering).

It probably can be minimized somewhat with better calibration.

Hmmm.... I will have see how it looks from a distance. What should I make of the slow pixel response?

Never heard of slow pixel response.

If you arent using the internal streaming services then check the wired connection of the streaming device.

What are your picture settings and what picture mode are you using? (Cell light, contrast, brightness, sharpness, etc).

Using stock settings out of the box. The black issue being fixed by settings makes sense.

I guess I should be more concerned about the pixels that stay magenta for about a second and then turn white when the screen changes? A lot more pixels used to be affected so I was hoping this issue would go away with time (have only had the tv on for about 30 minutes total so far).

I was baffled, and kept listening. I soon realized the set now buzzes rather variably, dark screens being the worst, but a variety of pictures with diverse content exhibit reduced or nearly no buzzing.

For the time being, I've cancelled my cancellation, I'll at least let it finish breaking-in, then decide.
This is the opposite of my buzzing. The buzzing is only apparently on bright/white scenes, non-existant on dark scenes.

Angry Broken Netflix Dolby 5.1

Any Netflix users here? Did you know that the Netflix app support for Dolby 5.1 is broken? It is a known issue with Samsung Smart TVs and lots of other Netflix apps as well. When Netflix changed to Dolby Digital Plus, they had problems with a lot of the apps and disabled 5.1. You will only get 2 CH. If you care about that be sure to let Netflix know you want a fix. This happened around Sept timeframe.

I know, right? A confounding variable I discovered last night is how absurdly directional the sound is. My relaxed seating position puts my head near center: lots of buzz. If I sit extremely upright, I am just at he edge of where the buzz is focused, with my eyes maybe 6-8" from the upper bezel. Literally one inch higher, and there is no buzz at all.

If I had shorter stand, I'd have never noticed the buzz, but having the upper bezel 4" above your eyes is not ideal. Also, I caught myself: I have been keeping the volume a little lower than normal, watching out for the buzz. It's less noticeable using my more typical setting. Still there though, and it really jumps out during quiet scenes, which can screw up the atmosphere sometimes. So, still deciding whether to give up, return it and wait for OLED to get reasonable.

First of all, a LCD television is either lit from the sides (usually right and left) or from the back so there's no such thing as an edge-lit television that's also back-lit.

Second, I didn't state all edge-lit televisions can make the black bars disappear, only the ones that are able to turn off the LEDs on the top and bottom where the black bars appear.
