Has anyone else experienced this? Can someone give this a try? Just go to the free Vudu app, pick one of the 3D Movies from its "Collections" area and select the free 2 minute preview. You will see exactly what I mean. And hopefully someone has figured this out?

Thanks!

During 3D content on Explore & Vudu, my menu and tool functions do not work either. During the playback of 2D content on Vudu, "tools" does bring up video/audio options.

Thanks. Can you watch the Fright Night 3D 2 minute free trailer and let me know if the Touchstone logo at the opening is set against a black background or a bright gray background? On my set the black level for all 3D content from Explore and Vudu is way to high. Yet 3D from broadcast TV and blu-ray works great with no black level issues.

Thanks!

It appears to be set against a dark gray not bright gray background. If I view the 3D trailer without the glasses I would consider it bright gray. I played the 2D trailer as a comparison and the background for the logo on the 2D version is significantly darker than the 3D. I don't have a broadcast 3D source and have only watched one Vudu 3D movie. I've not noticed black level issues on blu-ray, but I agree that the black levels are off on Vudu 3D.

Thanks so much for checking this out and confirming the problem with Vudu's black level on 3D with the Samsung. If I had to guestimate I would say that the logo we are talking about is set against a background equivalent to about a 30% full grey field calibration pattern. Whereas with the 2D version it looks like its set against a 0 IRE field (total darkness).

Has anyone tested the input lag when in PC Mode? I like the way the picture looks for gaming more when I set the HDMI 1 port to PC. I'm just curious if the input lag is worse than when it is set for TV and in Game Mode.

You can easily test it with a compatible laptop and camera. It should be used in conjunction with a CRT, but a laptop works quite well.

Check out this website:

I would test it for you, but I don't have the necessary cables... sorry.

Very odd thing starting happening on my PN63C8000 the other day. Searched awhile and hadn't seemed any similar posts, wanted to know if anyone had suggestions for this. When I watch a video on the Youtube app, the video window (both small and full screen) appears in the side-by-side (3D) mode. There are no options in tools to stop 3D, and hitting the 3D button on the remote does nothing. I did a picture reset and that didn't fix the problem. I tried watching a video on the MTV music app, and it played fine, no side-by-side. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

perhaps it's a bug? is a firmware upgrade or downgrade available to you? or a hard reset of the tv?
post #5619 of 5875
I've checked and there's no firmware available. I'm trying to see if there's any other options before performing a full reset. I'm going to try watching a YouTube 3D clip, then stop it, see if that refreshes the signal.

This display has been around now for almost 2 years. Does anyone actually use the 2D-3D feature? Also, does anyone still check this thread?
post #5621 of 5875
3D? No
Check? Yes
post #5622 of 5875
No. Yes.
post #5623 of 5875
No, Yes......for me also.

I just got my PN58C8000 panel replaced do to pink banding. I hope this panel stays uniform.

No ... Yes also.

I'm still stuck in a conundrum about the Motion Judder Canceler. I love the smoothness in motion but hate the distortion. I keep going back & forth. I would love to keep MJC On but just can't stand the edge distortions.

What do you guys do?

I don't care for MJC and don't use it or the 2D-3D conversion.
post #5626 of 5875
Don't use 2D-3D. Use real 3D tons. No MJC.

I use it - quite a bit, in fact. One of the best examples would be JJ Abram's "Star Trek" on blu-ray - you would have sworn that was intended to be 3D. I've also watched "Raiders", "Star Wars" and a little bit of "Jaws", just to play around with it.

I've recently started seeing pink banding for mostly white screens. It never appeared before. But, I did switch my source TV from AT&T uverse to Directv.

ElectronicTonic, you mentioned having to have the set replaced to fix the issue? This isn't a calibrations issue? What was the nature of your pink banding?

Yes, I had to have my panel replaced. The pink banding for me was on the top half of the screen. So if I put an all white screen up, the top half wound have a pink tint to it. I was able to calibrate it so it wasn't as noticeable, but I could still see it on an all white screen. Also, right in the middle of the screen the pink was the darkest. It almost looked like burn in, but in a pinkish 4in line across the whole screen. If you have any other questions, feel free to PM me.

Same here; no 2D-3D Conversion but tons of original 3D.
I still like the way MJC handles aggressive motions which otherwise is very unsmooth & rough -- especially in long camera pans -- but the jagged edges destroys the picture more then the smoothness helps it. If there were no jagged edges as a result of MJC ... I would keep MJC On 24/7 without questions asked.

I noticed that I am getting the pink band quite often now on my 63" plasma. Usually happens on a white background. No warranty left to speak of, do I have any chance of getting Samsung to do something about this?

When did you purchase it? Mine was like 7months out of warranty, and they replaced the panel free of charge.

Nov 2010 - I think
post #5634 of 5875
Samsung just replaced mine today and I am six months out of warranty. Really no questions asked. I think they know they have problem with the panels. They were very helpful and very fast about getting it fixed.
post #5635 of 5875
So they're replacing panels on these still? All of the repair places near me really suck. They are inexperienced with flat panel tv's, listing VCR's and CRT's as their areas of focus...and they treat your television poorly. They also don't want to work on it in your home because you'll see how bad they are at what they do. I had a repairman literally ruin a set of mine once, and Samsung didn't want to do a thing to compensate. They told me to take it up with the repairman. He had put my lcd face down and spun it on a nasty blanket to remove screws from the back. The bezel and screen now had scratches on them, and Samsung said they would not cover the physical damage. Now I'm really reluctant to bring a repairman into my house. I was hoping these tv's would be so old they would replace them by now.

This is the review of the ONLY listed repair center near me.

Considering Samsung will not cover damage the repair company does to your tv, why should I let them in my home? I've had pink blotches for a while, the random blinking and grid like lines on a white screen...but I haven't called for fear I'll end up with the same tv but worse.

Thanks,
I have those for sound isolation purposes. I had some extra foam from my recording studio, so I figured I'd use it.

Anyone using the Samsung linkstick to get wifi on your pnxxc8000 tv?


I have the 63" and this tv is the only thing I need a wire for now. Any experiences with it would be appreciated

I'm using the dongle on my 58". Works just fine.
post #5640 of 5875
I got my USB wireless adapter in today...I plug it in and nothing happens, i go to the network settings and try to select something other than wired and its not even an option.

Any ideas?
