I am a noob so please bare with me!!!!
I have a couple of questions that I thought might be answered here. I have owned a 64F8500 since 1st of November and I have a couple of questions about it (love the TV BTW, most amazing thing ever). I have not had my TV calibrated and I took a month in a half to break it in (all 16:9 viewing, dumb down settings, etc...). I am now viewing most my content off a Oppo 103d and a PS3. So here are some of my questions.
I have a few red dot snow patterns in dark places like the black bars on 2.35 viewing. It is only noticeable when you get up close to the screen, a couple of inches. I have noticed that this is only occurring during bluray play back. It does not happen on the menu screen for my Oppo, the menu screen is completely black. My question is, is this normal. Does everyone experience this. It seems different then red dot snow that I have seen on plasmas when I Googled it.
Another observation is on black bars there is a line of light that is between the picture and the black bars. Is this normal as well. When I turn off the TV or switch to something else, like going back to the home screen on my PS3 I notice that the black bars are visible on black screens as well as this lighter strip of light. This strip is quite thin about a MM, but still noticeable. I don't really know if this makes much since.
I hope that someone could help me with these or have some insight.
PS both symptoms are slightly worse when viewing a 3D movie, especially with glasses off.
