It might be more appropriate for me to say F8500 flicker. Did you ever try a last gen Panny?

Have you seen both TVs side by side in the same room with the same source? I have! Their color is quite close but the similarities stop there. Check out my post in another forum.

I have been getting a pop up saying something about unable to update. This has not happened before tonight.

Perhaps I misremembered.

Having a strange issue. My blacks have gotten bright! On a completely black screen, with lights off, the screen glows. I know for a fact, when I first got the unit this did not happen. Any ideas? Adjusting brightness has no affect, along with cell light. Has anyone had this issue??

Really disheartened.

Edit: Does anyone think the power coming from my wall might be the problem? It didn't with my fujitsu 50" (2004) but wondering if that could be the culprit. I tried going into my monster and direct and both had the problem.
I just remembered... Black Optimizer is known to introduce a bit of flicker on dark areas. I notice it in mostly black screens. I assume the solution is not that easy and you see flicker in bright content as well but you might trying turning Black Optimizer off.

I also notice that the Update option is grayed out even though the Internet connection test passed. So I contacted Samsung and they recommended that I switch to the TV input temporarily just to perform the update even though I use Input 4 exclusively. When I turned on the TV I happened to notice that I did not have to switch to the TV input as the Update option was available. So I checked it manually and it said that I have the latest update, which is ver. 1204. I guess the TV was having a bad day .

What is HDMI black level set to? Is this on all sources? I had an issue similar to that after a FW update. I had to do a reset. That cleared it up. Of course, you will have to re-enter all your settings. After that, I always do a full reset after FW updates.

You can do it through the menu. I always disconnect all hdmi cables first and then reset. BTW, it's normal for a plasma to glow. You will not have a totally black screen with light turned off.

Let your eyes adjust for a minute or two, in a totally dark room with a black slide displayed on tv. You will see a glow. Even the Kuros will have the plasma glow. The longer your eyes adjust, the brighter it will appear to glow. Plus, the lighter your eye color, the more you will notice the glow in a dark room.

Can anyone comment to the sturdiness on the base mounting stand? Trying to figure out options to get it to swivel. Randy has come up with some options in my thread

pn60f8500 swivel stand?

Seems the easiest option is a 31" turn table, but not sure if stand is sturdy enough for the outer 11" or so on each side to not be supported.

Samsung pn58b540 previously
Now PN60f5300

pn60f8500, on the way - hopefully

The base is actually attached near the ends (on my 51" model it's approximately 4.75" from each end) so I strongly recommend a turn table that's at least wide enough to support where it's attached to the panel otherwise you'll be stressing the base.

That's what dim bias lights are for. Mine are just bright enough so that a solid black screen on my F8500 only has the slightest hint of glow to it if you're really looking for it. My white wall ends up at only a few cd/m2.
