Official Sony KDL-EX710 LCD-LED TVs - Page 3

post #61 of 1259
Hughh - I ran across all the info you quoted in your post. Good info for review tho.

What I couldn't find was anything specific about the engine supplied with the EX710 boxes. I did find evidence that there is a "pro" engine, but even Sony lists that as "Bravia Engine 3 Technology" for the units linked to "pro" in their spec sheets - same text listed for the EX. Be nice to at least find some pOOp on what the differences are between versions. More user options, better algorithms, more processing power ... what?

Other than comparing features, screen shots of menu options, ripping one down to do chip by chip comparisons, or ... radical thought ... actually finding some concrete info from Sony ...

"Yes, we could tell you, but then we'd have to shoot you."

Either/or ... it still sounds promising.

More food for thought - my 46" 3LCD projector was identical in every way to the 52" unit - except for the screen size of course, and focus length. Looked at both, and had a couple references that said the 46" actually had a brighter more vibrant pic - mostly due to the fact that the same basic set had more light to work with right out of the box. Different tech for sure, but I wonder if the light focusing systems on these edge lit boxes have similar issues? One basic design "stretched to fit" could show better results on different screen sizes?

Maybe we need a score sheet to track the AWESOME vs TRASH ratings by size ...

From what I have seen the "Pro" engines are on the higher end Bravias. As to the differences, who knows what's reality and what's invented by marketing?
post #63 of 1259


About what I figured ... I guess that means that my 3LCD boat anchor was a "higher end Bravia" ...

(Lord help us all)

You'd think they'd want to crow about the extra bells and whistles?

Who knows ... maybe the new "basic" engine doesn't need the extra tweaks and will work better for your backwoods tv watcher (like me, fer instance) as opposed to "guru" requirements. That was actually true when I was shopping for an SACD player for an HTPC system I was building. Oppo's top of the line players excelled in video, but when it came to audio, they came up short compared to their entry level 980H. I've even got a button to turn off the video entirely which devotes ALL the processor power to all that 7.1 audio goodness. Oppo stopped making them, and go ahead and try to pry one away from somebody lucky enough to own one. Go figure.

I do know (you won't hear that often in this thread) that it can take some electronics time to acclimate to a new environment. I got a shiny new DVR a while back and it took a couple days to settle down. This time of year especially, condensation inside a unit that's been bouncing around in the back of a truck could be a real issue.

Can't imagine what it'd be like with something as complex as one of these big screens. Not sure if the light panel would be more sensitive what with the edge lighting and all. Don't know if these things have DEW sensors that would disable turn on if there's a moisture problem ...

There ... now that I've managed to muddy things up some more ...

I don't run my tv with factory settings. I use Cnet's settings -eventho they're for EX700 but they seem to work fine.

I've tried 'massaging' the tv and such but it's still cloudy as hell.

Sounds like you have a bad set. Maybe you "rubbed" it the wrong way. I cant see how Sony could put something like that on the market given what you are saying. Anyway I called Sony asking what to do should I experience any issues with my 710 and they said simply call and they would do whatever is necessary to make it right.

We need more reviews. They are nowhere to be found.

Thread Starter 
You're right - I'm amazed that there aren't any formal reviews for the 710 series. It's either as if it's too similar to the 700s or this series will be as short-lived as the 700s, which were out only about 6-months before Sony came out with the 710s. And whatever happened to the 60” version of the 710? It seems that this would have been available by now, but Sony does not even admit that it ever will exist.

I personally think that Sony’s going to revamp the line again, and bring out new models at CES in just a little over 2 months. Perhaps the new line will be “Goggle TV” ready. (And here I was criticizing those that start rumors!)
post #67 of 1259
Patience...this model Tv was not introduced until August or Spetember. The media reviews take months.
post #68 of 1259
BTW - You guys with the EX710 may want to go to the EX700 topic. There are some really good settings there. One of the is from a professionally calibrated Tv.

Sorry, I don't think much of the CNet calibrator...

* I did send an email to Sony asking about the Bravia engine thing. Tried their chat ...

"Hello, this is Peggy ..."

... no happy ending there either.

This model year's panels come from the jointly owned Samsung/Sony factory. There are no more Sharp panels due to short supply.

You might be able to peak through the air vents in the back and see the series of numbers that identifies the tv. As for service menu, I haven't seen anything on AVS.

There supposedly is a way to find what panel your tv is using by entering a simple code with your remote control:

http://www.digitalversus.com/news-pa...ews-15489.html

For reference, "i+" is DISPLAY on US remotes. When done, just hit POWER again to get out of the service menu.

Here ... I fixed it ...

The forum seems to have taken a turn for the strange tonite. First it's mangling links, then it won't let me edit my post. Click EDIT, and I'm prompted to delete the post? Wha?

Ah well - I get a bump in my post count out of the deal ...

Anyway - nothing on the Digital Versus link specific to the EX710, but it does look like they're fairly consistent in their ID numbers if you do need to peek into the service menu to look for clues on who built the panel. I read that if the panel is a Samsung PVA as suspected, the first three letters of the panel ID should be "LTY".

Anybody able to decode the panel mfg off one of those back panel stickers yet?

Hold on. I think I have the codes somewhere...right now I am savoring a big bottle of Champagne celebrating the Texas Rangers victory against the hated NY Yankees. Tomorrow's game is in the afternoon. I'll try and post the codes sometime before or after the game.
post #76 of 1259
Well, this is obviously not up to date, but look and see if you can find anything useful. I'm still celebrating the great victory over the NY Yankees! The European Tv models tend to have an ending digit number different than ours, i.e. EX703 instead of EX700. That last number usually indicates the European system tuner.

post #77 of 1259
Rangers, huh? That's like ... little white balls? Not so much into baseball myself - I figure if a ball doesn't have points, what's the point? Also seems like champagne is a bit overkill - It's only a game!

Altho come to think of it, we were breaking open the bubbly here when the Detroit Lions beat the Rams recently. Being from Texas, you're certain to take offence to me saying that, technically, ignoring the fact that Dallas should actually be more rested up what with a bye week and all, the Lions are just as good as the Cowboys this year. Them Cowboys aren't trying to git er done with their third string quarterback either.

Don't mind me ... just killing time till my new set gets here. Still no word from Sony ... it's been about 10 days since confirming the order. Would have expected to see at least a shipping notice or a credit card charge by now, considering some of the rave reviews I've seen here on turnaround times for their replacement program.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

So ... topic. Sort of. What with all the talk about flashlighting, clouds and all, looks like the common thread seems to be that most such problems are fairly minor and mostly an issue with full dark media rooms.

Not to mention wonky perfectionists who really need to watch my "old" 3LCD for a while to show them what a bad picture REALLY looks like. I've got a REALLY old 25" Sylvania CRT in the basement that runs rings around it, even playing VHS movies. Ya, I know, but if it ain't broke, don't toss it. Too bad it's "DDD" format ... it Don't Do Digital.

Anyway, I wonder if the addition of bias lighting helps? Movie theaters have them and I can't rightly say they've ever taken away from all that big screen goodness. Properly set up, it does tend to at the very least reduce eye strain for those who insist on sitting in the dark. Not to mention improve perceived black levels. At best, bringing out the room background a bit shouldn't be all that distracting (think dimmer control to tweak as needed) and SHOULD be just distracting enough to keep the eye being drawn to the fiddly bits an individual screen might display. Certainly not a solution for the real obvious defects, but I do intend to look into it.

Sure it's a cover up - hocus pocus really - but what isn't? It's all about tricking the mark one eyeball controller into thinking it's satisfied ... I'm surprised Sony (and everyone else) hasn't started handing out bias lighting kits as the first step in "problem" resolution ...

Oh. That's certainly a pile of links you put on my plate. I'll have to stock up on Jolt and eye drops and dive in. I do like my short version - look for the LTY (Samsung) or LK (Sharp) if you really can't sleep not knowing ...

Thanks for the info. I finally got the service menu working.
But *surprise surprise*, the panel part number is identified as T315HW07 V1.
Looking at the naming mechanism found on the Digital Versus page, this would mean the panel supplier is AUO, not Samsung.
I'm from Taiwan, so I guess I am supposed to be proud, but on the flip side I just don't feel right.

Dang it!! Just when I thought we had it figured out!!

I dug back thru the thread and you got a 32" if I remember right. So ... score one AUO panel for the 32EX710. Should be interesting to see what else pops out the pack. Is Sony playing "panel lottery" on us? Is it an overseas thing? Are all the EX panels supplied by AUO? Are all the 32EX panels supplied by AUO? Was somebody at the factory just having fun with you? Is global warming real?

RUMOR MILL - START YOUR ENGINES!!
Anyway ... how's it look?

I just got a call from my sister this morning asking me to install her new
KDL-46EX710 that arrives tomorrow.

She has been debating the purchase of her first LCD TV for the past three years.

God I hope this does not turn into a nightmare purchase...
post #81 of 1259
Might save you some problems if she gets it into the right room, opens the box, and let's it acclimate to it's new environment for a day or so before firing it up.

From what I read, first thing is to dig around and make sure it's set to "home" mode instead of store, then go from there. There's a couple lists of calibration settings posted in this thread that are supposed to work well if the factory settings don't do it for ya.

Don't forget to post back with the results - I've got the identical set in the pipeline from Sony on their replacement plan.

Our dim wit (translating from Latin) hehe- No, there never is an occasion when champagne would be over the top. I used to drink it even when I finished the horrible job of having to do my yard in 100 degree temps. A famous man once said: "I drink Champagne when I win, to celebrate…and I drink Champagne when I lose, to console myself". ~ Napoleon Bonaparte

The Cows will have to wait for another season. They have been dreadful this year! Jerry Jones is a great owner but a lousy team General Manager!!!

For those looking to take a peek into the Service Menu, this is the opinion of a professional calibrator:

"There is a service menu, but Sony constantly changes the abbreviations used in the service menu and almost every adjustment I saw was completely inscrutable... you couldn't imagine what the seemingly meaningless strings of letters meant in the heading for each adjustment. Rather than fly blind, I just left them alone." That's on the calibration article of the HX909 he just wrote for the on line Widescreen Review -- Home Theater & Sound.
post #84 of 1259
I almost hate to see any mention of "service menu" without posting the official disclaimer:

SERVICE MODE WARNING:

Without proper documentation and training, you can probably do quite a good job of messing up your television set, perhaps even damaging it.

Don't mess around with the service mode adjustments unless you know what you're doing and have the service manual to guide you.

Once you enter service mode the first thing you should do is record all the original values BEFORE you change anything! - This is the only way to restore the television to its original (factory default) state should it become necessary to do so.

Your results with these procedures may vary and can NOT
be guaranteed to work on your particular television set
USE THEM AT YOUR OWN RISK.

There's also the old "Make sure you record all the original settings before making any changes. If you need to restore the default settings, you can do that manually by re-entering those original values.

That kinda assUmes you've still got a readable service menu to work with.

... and about those Cowboys. Take it from a Lions fan - give it another 50 years or so, and you'll learn to accept mediocrity, and even enjoy it.

UPDATE: I just checked the box scores on the NLCS - so ... er ... get the champagne ready ... and maybe a box of kleenex.

Just an FYI - it's been a couple weeks since I got approved. I'd heard they had some fairly amazing turnaround times, so I gave the Sony fulfillment center a call. They're now quoting 2-3 weeks - must be getting busy over there.

Can't wait - that yellow stain is battling the blue blobs and winning. About enough to gag a maggot. I did manage to improve the pic some - I put on my red laser glasses when I'm watching ...

Sony quoted me 2 weeks, 2 weeks ago. Just got the email today that the TV was just shipped.(got the 46" ) Should arrive at the main terminal by Wednesday and then it gets picked up by the local distributor that's going to set a delivery date/time. So I guess 3 weeks is right on.

Went to Best Buy this afternoon. The 46 and 55 were out with the 46 set up using the Sony Demo. I was having my doubts after reading some of the earlier posts but I'm happy to say the PQ was awesome. No issues..None. No corner brightness issues. Great on all viewing angles.

I'm no expert but I love what I see. Coming from a 42A10 with yellow blobs, I won't be picky. Couldn't be any happier with my choice.
post #90 of 1259
I'm sure the actual track record on ANY set is way better than these forums would lead one to believe. After all, it's those who are having problems who tend to make the most noise. I'll admit, I did a little hand wringing myself after reading thru some of the stuff and had second thoughts about the whole Edge LED thing. After all, Sony DID offer a set with the CCFL backlight, and that one was free. Second lap thru the threads, and there were just as many rave reviews, and it's not like the older backlighting schemes didn't have their own host of problems, so screw it ... 46EX710 it is.

Figure out what to do with the old set yet?

Don't get me wrong - I absolutely LOVED my 42A10 until the OB went south. Did the red push and grayscale fixes along with the usual tweaks and it was THE most natural picture I'd ever seen. If the A10 were a bit smaller, I might have considered stashing it until I got bored and decided to try the OB fix. Don't really need more sets than what I got tho.

When the new set arrives ...

PLAN A:
- Let it sit for a day to acclimate.
- Watch it for a couple days using the factory defaults so I can appreciate the difference once I get to work tailoring it.
- Engage"home" mode before starting any tweaks.
- Turn off ALL the fancy crap.
- Run thru all the suggested settings I've managed to cull from the EX700 thread. Other than the panel manufacturer, the specs are almost identical, so they should work. That should keep me busy for a while.
- Fire up the DVE calibration disk and see if I can do them better when it comes to matching my room and light.

I'm hoping the panel change eliminates most of the ghosting and flashlighting seen with the EX700s. If not, before engaging "panic" mode, I'll try loosening the back cover to allow the panel to "float" into true. I also hear that removing the back cover completely and leaving the set on for a day can clean up a lot of problems too. If that don't work, or leaves minor video fiddlybits, next step would be adding a couple of bias lights to the room. If that don't work, THEN yelp for help.

OR

PLAN B:
Prepare to be pleasantly surprised when I fire it up and am immediately satisfied with what I see.

Plan B would be better, but I'm thinking Plan A would be way more fun.

If the 46EX710 is anywhere close to the original pic quality of the 42A10, I plan to be a happy camper.
