2008 Samsung HL67A750 LED DLP owners thread - Page 84

post #2491 of 2719
I've had the Sammy 67 DLP LED for two years now. It's served me well with my PC using the Nvidia kit.

Well I've been dying to play Xbox 360 and PS3 in 3D so I picked up the Mitsu adapter. The key component I picked up though are the viewsonic PGD-250 DLP glasses. I've got around five pairs of IR glasses and they all at some point drop sync and never block out the red DLP link hue. Plus they are dark.

Well the PGD-250 are AMAZING. They completely block out the DLP link hue, are not as dark as the IR glasses, they never lose sync with THIS tv. I know they can't sync with Mitsu DLP but with the Sammys they are amazing. No jitter, no drop of sync, no ghosting at all. Literally no ghosting.

Motor storm, wipeout, MLB11, Killzone 3, The Fight, Crysis, are all the best 3D I've played, period. With my nvidia kit on both my Sammy 8000 series LED LCD, and the 67" Sammy I get some ghosting, and some sync drop. With the PS3 there is zero ghosting with the PGD-250s on the DLP set. It kills my brand new LED DLP.

If you can get one of the HL67A750s used and the viewsonic PGDs-250s do it, it's a fantastic combo. I'm just pissed it took two years to find out how good my DLP set could look in 3D because these glasses weren't out.

Anyway, hope you get a chance to try these DLP glasses with your Sammy.

I'm looking to take the 3D splash with my Sammy HL67A750. Mostly for PS3 gaming (played GT5 and KZ3 on a friends 3D TV and was hooked).

As you can imagine I've been doing a lot or research on the subject. I was just about ready to pull the trigger on the 3DC-100S starter kit. But your post MAYAmanIGN has intrigued me. I kinda shrugged off the DLP link galsses as everything appears to be IR/BT Active Shutter moving for ward.

For DLP link glasses, will I need an emitter or it's built into the TV? In which case I would just have to pick up the adapter from 3dglassesunlimited.com and some DLP Link glasses?

3DC-100S = $449.99
or
3DC-100S adapter only and 2 pairs of DLP Link = approx $449.99

Guys, don't buy the Mitsu kit from Mitsubishi. I bought just the part I needed here http://www.3dglassesunlimited.com/sa...-kit-p-79.html for $250. Ask for Mike Miller, the guy is great. He shipped my 3DC-100S on his lunch break so I could have it for the weekend. Then I bought the Viewsonic PGD-250s from Amazon and they got here in 3 days.

That's all you need. The PGDs work awesome with our Sammys, no sync issues. Honestly the best shutter glasses I've used. Large lenses, great quality, rechargeable.

If you have the HL67A750 this is the setup we should have had three years ago. I'm lovin it. DLP got a raw deal because people are sheep and want baller thin TVs. But this setup is better than my brand new Sammy 8000 LED with 3D. I get ghosting on the LCD with infared. But with the PGDs zero ghosting on the DLP.

Enjoy and post your results.

Here's my setup: PS3 slim, Pioneer VSX-820, HL67A750. all connected through HDMI. Whenever i'm listening to music on the PS3 using PANDORA, if i turn off the HL67A750 the sounds stops. The ps3 is not connected directly to the TV, but to the receiver via HDMI and the receiver to the TV. Why would turning off the TV cause the sound to stop.

Any others considering the VIP 3D Theater/Displayer for this set?

I'm giving it consideration since it appears it will give this 60hz set a second chance for 3D plus my Panasonic AE4000 as well.

The Samsung DLP is 120hz and 3d ready - it can be used with the Mits 3DC-100S kit. From what I have read the VIP 3D puts out a 720p 3D output while the Mits kit does 1080p.

Hi Paul,

I have the HL61A750 but have never seen any mention of 120hz in the manual. All the 3D modes I see the Samsung DLP series 7 sets were at 60Hz.
Can you elaborate on this?

Regards,

Thanks Rich, haven't seen it mentioned in my literature.

MAYAmanIGN is right on the money. The Viewsonics may have issues with other displays, but they're smooth as butter on the my HL67A750. The only issue I have is that they don't completely block out the red tint on the DLP link like my Nvidia glasses did. Not sure if that's something that can be done in a firmware update, but I'd say it's about 85% gone, where as with Nvidia glasses, black was black. It's not really noticable when there's a picture on display, but when it fades to black, it's more like a maroon. What impressed me how much less flicker I noticed than the Nvidia glasses. I'm not sure if it's because it was DLP Link vs IR, or even the limitation of Nvidia's driver vs the PS3. If you were impressed with Nvidia Vision glasses on the Sammy, you're in for a treat with the Viewsonics, they're just hands down better.

I'll try out the 3DPlay demo as my laptop still has an Nvidia GPU(260M) to see how these babies handle PC gaming. As for the PS3 gaming, the Mortal Kombat 9 was decent, but the content just doesn't have that much depth. Wipeout HD in 3D looks great, but alas you can tell there was a massive hit on framerate vs the 2D version.

I have Tron Legacy blu-ray sealed and ready for viewing. It'll be a few days as my GF comes in on Thursday night and I had to promise to wait for her. Judging from the Disney trailer disc that came with the 3D adapter kit, it should look stellar as the trailers on that demo disc were incredible! I'll have to pick up Christmas Carol and Nightmare Before Xmas in 3D for certain.

In all this adapter and glasses really extended the use of this DLP. I don't use it that much as my SONY Bravia 60" LCD(as well as my Espon Projector) gets most of my viewing. That certainly will change with 3D in the mix. So to anyone who's teetering on scrapping this DLP for a new 3D TV; don't even bother. I've seen many of those in action and our current sets take the cake. Great job by Samsung and Mitsubishi collaborating and getting this long overdue product done.

Thanks for clarifying, I only read at their website the series of sets in their list and HL... series was noted. Of course some have already mentioned in the past they've experienced the same problem with the model of this thread.
Hopefully they will be eventually covered with a fix too.

Guys, it appears my tv will no longer produce red color in the image. I got home yesterday and my wife had the tv on and i asked her how long it has been like that and she said ever since she turned it on a few hours earlier. The whole picture has a green bias. thoughts?

Replace the red LED. Been a common problem.
post #2506 of 2719
Thanks Rahull, thought that was probably it. Is this an easy DIY fix and if so any guidance where to purchase the LED and "how-to"?
post #2507 of 2719
nevermind, did a search, found PLENTY of info, ugh

what did you search for?
I can even seem to search this fourm, when I go to advanced there is no drop down for just this forum.
post #2509 of 2719
just go back to page 83 and a handful of pages previous, there are quite a few related comments, there's a link to the service manual there somewhere too, i didnt search through the forum, i did a google search "red led failure hl67a750" and found it on avsforum
post #2510 of 2719
yes I read that thread, Where did you buy your from? Mine is ok but I want it for reference. I have had mine since 12/08 and it runs about 8-10 hours per day.
I bought it at Amazon warehouse for $1500
It would be nice if you could search 1 forum instead of the all, I though you could in advanced but I do not see the selection so you get way to many hits to be valuable.
post #2511 of 2719
i bought mine in the spring/early summer or so of 2009 if i remember correctly. Got mine for 1399 i think from a local electronics chain "Bernies" when they were going out of business. Id say mine has ran for about the same 8-10 hrs a day average too.

I'm having withdrawals- no main tv except bedroom till sometime next week when the repairman gets the LED, ha!
post #2512 of 2719
I meant where did you buy the Leds from, I see your not doing it yourself. I would like to find a supplier so I can but spairs before the stop making them.

I found them $120

I have the amazing Samsung HL-67A750 too but when I went to the link it seems they don't carry the 3DC-100S anymore. Has anyone else in Canada successfully found and ordered from a vendor/source that would ship the 3DC-100S here?

I think I am going the 3DC-100S + Viewsonic PGD-250s route too since this has gotten great reviews.

I've been debating getting into the 3D arena. This setup you have sounds great, but can't find the 3DC-100S anywhere.

Ummm... isn't the 3DC-100S too new for stores to have in stock? I figured the Sammy is too old for anyone to support it now. I have had mine since Nov 08. Before ya know it 3yrs old and ready for replacement. )~

I am saving my money on glasses free 3D and keeping the ol 61" Sammy for the master bedroom. Soon every room in the house will have a flatscreen. )
post #2516 of 2719
Does anybody know if the Tru3D for $179 is compatible with ViewSonic PGD-250 on my Samsung HL67A750? http://www.tru3d.com/products/view_p...D%20DLP%20HDTV

Since I can't find any vendor to sell 3DC-100S separately without the glasses let alone in Canada so Tru3D is the only option available to me right now.

Looks like I'm not the only one #$%$%^^

Just tested this set using the VIP Displayer and it did a fine job at 60Hz. Using the Displayer 120Hz mode, the Samsung DLP reported back "unsupported" format. This set may have an 120Hz engine but apparently total system design is limited to 60Hz.

The VIP/Monstervision RF glasses had enough tweaks to tune out ghosts, the settings change overall brightness but with my final adjustments at this point I estimate a perceived brightness reduction of about 20%.

Passed up on the Mits 3D kit as I want to see if I can make use of the Panny AE4000 with the same box.

I hope this is the right thread to pose this question in. I've got a 61A750 Samsung that I purchased about three years ago and for the most part love it. However, about a year after I purchased it, a "smudge" mark that looked like dust on the front of the screen showed up. It looks like a half moon with a smaller, lighter half moon under it. It's only noticable when the set is turned off or when a very dark scene comes on. I tried to dust it off, but looking more closely, it appeared it was on the inside of the screen. I finally got enough guts up to open the side panel that looks like an oval and I dusted the inside screen, but it didn't have any effect... luckily it didn't make it worse either.

Here's a picture I took tonight of the smudges:



The smudges are near the middle of the screen. Any ideas how to get rid of them or how they got there? It really doesn't interfere with watching TV and I absolutely love this baby... still looks better than 99% of the LCD's and plasmas on the market.

Thanks for your help,

Wipster

Looks like dust gets inside the TV mirror. You'll probably need to open it up and clean it. You may want to consult the service manual, or search this thread or the HL61A750A thread for instructions. Good luck!
