I have a vizio led 3d hdtv and I can't get the image correct to watch 3d. I have a 3d high speed hdmi, purchased a sony 3d blu ray home surround. I played a 3d blu ray and seen double words and double people and items with all three 3d settings. I then purchased a movie directly from my cable privider suddenlink and still have the same problem. Help please.

What kind of TV? Model number? Active or passive?

What kind of glasses? Did they come with the TV or did you get them from the theater?

Have you ever seen a 3D movie before? Some people are stereo blind so even a working 3D system will look wrong to them. Hope it's not that.

Sorry for the dumb questions.

It is a Vizio led 3d smart tV model #M3D550SR. It came with four pairs of glasses that I believe are passive as they do not need batteries and look alot like what you get at the movies. I have seen several 3d movies so that is not the problem. I have tried to play a 3d movie through our sony 3d blu ray and rented one from our cable provider (suddenlink) and in both cases you can see double images. I use a 3d high def HDMI to connect the componets. It has three options for 3d which are 3d senso, tds, & sds. I would really appreciate any help as I have tried everything I know to do.

Are you viewing it from the proper viewing angle? If you view from above, below, or too far to the side with passive glasses then you would probably see ghosting (double images).

According to your manual:
Quote:


....
5. Turn the 3D Blu-ray player on. Insert the Blu-ray 3D disc into the player.
6. When the disc is loaded, select the Play Movie option in the disc's main menu.
7. The TV displays, "3D Content detected. Select YES to switch to 3D, NO to display in 2D."
Highlight Yes and press OK.

8. Put on your Theater 3D glasses and enjoy the movie!

Did #7 happen, because that seems to be very important.

I tried different angels and positions and the same thing. I also did what it said in the manual and it never comes up and says 3D content detected. So no number 7 never happened.

Sounds like your Blu-ray players isn't outputting 3D. Please post your Blu-ray make/model. My guess is that your Blu-ray player isn't 3D compatible.

To play a 3D Blu-ray disc (or BD) you will need a 3D capable Blu-ray player and a 3D HDTV. The ability to play a 3D BD is almost a standard feature on Blu-ray players that are less than a year old.

Assuming the double images look like 2 ghost images like this, your TV and Blu-ray player seem to be doing fine.



Do this test: while wearing the glasses and with 3D content on your TV, close one eye. Does the image still ghost, or does it now look like one clear image? Or does it look clearER, but still a little bit of ghosting? A little ghosting is normal on some content.
