The panel is 55" and this set of lights are 120VAC, the package comes with 4 sets of leds each in a clear plastic shell. I used 2 little ty-rap (zip-ty) sticky backed squares to mount each of the 4 11" light sets. It work pretty well as you can space them however it works best for your size of panel.

Again, sorry for the crappy pics but you get the idea. With a larger panel you could probably move the lights closer to the outside of the panel for a more pronounced effect, I purposely kept these to the inside to minimize the "halo" (for want of a better term).

Hey there RobertCEO, I was wondering if you ever got an answer to your issue of the jumpy screen that you posted or figured out what the problem was. I too have noticed this "jumpy" effect especially this weekend watching NFL games. When watching the games the tickers on the bottom and the graphics they often post on the screen appear to be jittery and jump a little. It's very subtle but it's starting to get very annoying. I tried adjusting all kinds of settings with automotion etc. and nothing seemed to make it go away. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Hi All,
I cracked my led tv while mounting it... any idea how much a new panel would these things cost?

Good luck. If you can nail down the actual problem please post it.

My TV started doing this 3 months after I bought it. The problem never occurs when Samsung tech is there. They replaced the control board and power supply - no effect. Came back and put the old parts back in, replaced the screen. That fixed it for 8 months. Just got it back from the service center again for the same problem, they replaced the power board this time, and the picture went out within two minutes. Warranty expires in 2 weeks.

Specifically the TV suddenly turns itself off and immediately powers back on. The red power light will blink for several seconds indicating the boot cycle. The sound will come back on, but the appears to be no video. The video actually comes back on - its the backlight that doesnt come back on. If you shine a flashlight on the screen you will see the video.

Sometimes turning the tv off and on will fix the problem for various time periods (minutes to days). Sometimes unplugging and plugging the tv back in will fix the problem for various time periods (minutes to days). I have also gone days without video. Once the problem starts it increases in frequency until the TV is unwatchable.

My apologies if this is re hashing an old problem, but...
I have the 001025.1 upgrade on a USB stick.
The set finds it and starts to upgrade but doesn't get beyand 3% when it gives up and tells me that the update has failed.
Any suggestions?

Format the USB, redownload the file, and try again.
post #3131 of 3295
Thanks for the reply. I reformated the stcik and tried again, but it did not make any difference. It found the update & started to load & dropped out at 3%.

Download is entitled "T-GAP8DEUC" It contains a subfolder call "Image". This has to be moved up to be a primary folder before the image is recognised.
Other suggestions gratefully received.
post #3132 of 3295
What happens if the only folder on the USB is the Image folder?
post #3133 of 3295
No Difference. Finds the update and drops out at 3%.
I even tried just putting the files contained in the image folder "naked" onto the stick. That didn't work as no image was recognised

Could my set-up be causing some interference? I have the Samsung sound system, a Sky box, a BT Vision box, a Samsung Blue Ray and wired ethernet all connected
post #3134 of 3295
None of that should matter, but you could always try disconnecting everything. Before you do that though, did you actually re-download the file from the Samsung site?
post #3135 of 3295
Yes

"Hi All,

If you bought it with a credit card (within the last year), check with the credit card customer relations. Some of them cover it under their warranty. It's worth a try..

Good Luck

Another idea, write down all of your settings, and then factory reset the tv.

This TV uses the blue tooth glasses, correct? I am seeing some conflicting opinions out there.

Hello all,

I was chatting with a samsung rep who said the qwerty remote and 2 3d glasses are not available with this model (UN46D7000). Was this person misinformed or am I? I thought they were to be included.

Thanks!

My TV came with the QWERTY remote. I am sure it was part of the package deal though. Same as the 3D Blu-Ray player. Mine came with the top of the line Samsung 3D Blu-Ray player, 4 3D glasses and the Qwerty Remote. All of these were part of a package deal to eliminate stock for the new years model. The QWERTY remote came in the same package as the TV though, it may have been a Best Buy exclusive packaging or all of this model come with it. I am not sure which is the case. As for the rest, it is not part of the default configuration, but store specials that give you the 3D glasses.

My Costco D7050 came with 2 pairs of glasses and the QWERTY remote. However, the remote has been worthless to me. QWERTY side rarely works, to the point that I've just thrown it in the drawer and use my Universal MX-780 for everything.

Thanks for the reply. I just pulled the trigger and ordered the TV! Got a great deal! Will post pics once it arrives wed/thurs

Hey guys, do you think that this set is still a good buy if it's under $1500 NIB? I know it's been around for a while, but there doesn't seem to be a significant difference between the 7100 model for 2012. Of course 2013 isn't too far off... I am looking for something in the 55-60" size sub $1500. This one isn't the newest but is the highest end model in the range I can afford. The room it'll be in has a pretty good amount of light coming in depending on the time of day. 3D isn't a necessity but since it's on this one it's a bonus. Is this a really good buy at the price or should I hold out for Black Friday and see what happens? Seems like the super good deals on Black Friday are the lower end sets to get people in the stores though... I also looked at the Sony 55ex640 and 55hx750 as well as the Sharp 60le640u and 60le745u in the price range. Thanks for the info!

Brian

Sounds like a great deal to me! My D7000 is sitting in a very bright living room and it is never washed out or challenged by the light. I'm starting to wish it did better with the blacks on movie material, but honestly for the money this is a great panel.

Good luck!

I will second that. I have a 60" D7000 and I have had visitors tell me it is the best picture they have seen in anyone's home. I have a big picture window behind my main viewing area on a couch on the south side of my house and the southern sun can be a problem because my wife doesn't want the room to be like a dungeon so she put up sheer drapes. But I've gotten used to it.

TV just arrived, loving the way it looks and its features...my only concern is clouding (its pretty bad in some corners..does it go away with time? Its a h301 panel mad.gif) an also, it doesnt appear the actual unit is straight. By that I mean the panel has a slight curve to it (almost like the Galaxy Nexus) I will try to get a picture exemplifying the issue. Just wondering if either of those issues are normal. On the plus side...it came with the qwerty remote!

anyone?
post #3150 of 3295
The clouding does go away with time. I started out with a light massaging of the panel in the clouding areas. Eventually with time its no longer a distraction. I would recommend the back light adjustments mentioned in this thread and pay attention to the lighting in the room. Both are major keys to how this panel's jumps at you.

Its a steal at current prices. And when you consider how good the picture is especially using reference material like "Baraka", its a hi-end display piece.
