The out of the box settings are pretty bright, you should give some of the settings earlier in the thread a try. If you don't feel like doing that, just turn the backlight down to 8-10.

A few things. You are posting in the D7000 thread, which was the 2011 model, when you clearly have 2012 model. You will have better luck posting in the correct thread.

Secondly, you have a ton of apparently flashlighting and backlight inconsistency. However, this can be significantly improved with some reasonable settings.

Put your set on standard mode, turn the backlight down to 10-12, and set your brightness at 45. Color should be 47-50, sharpness 10-20. AMP to clear. You can fine tune from there, but let us know how the backlighting looks.

I appreciate the help, i will try these settings tonight. Sorry about posting in the wrong area.

UPDATE 2012-11-10: I called Samsung support back since they never called me back like they said that they would last week... I got someone in the US this time, at least she was a native English speaker (unlike last time). She was very helpful and verified that my Samsung Gusto cell phone should have been able to detect the TV's bluetooth. I wasn't sure if it would since it is a bottom end model phone. She arranged for a tech to come out to the house to check the TV. She even told me that it will be considered under warranty until Jan 2013, even though I bought the TV at the end of Nov 2011. I'll update again once the tech has been here.

Thanks, that's good to know. I guess I'll start searching for replacement guides and modules.

noticed while watching nfl today, 1080i, even in clear AMP mode, the game still goes in 'slow motion' at times.

any way to fix this or is this a common problem that plagues this tv?

Just throwing out a few possibilities....
You sure it's the TV? Does it happen on all channels showing games?
Perhaps it's broadcast signal is in 720p?
Does it happen on a Blu-ray that has some fast action scenes?

I have had the same issues with the D7000 with live TV and Blu-ray. I approached Samsung on this and a couple of other issues. Long story short, no answer on the AMP jerkiness/stuttering. I was told to put the TV into game mode. Doing so does stop the processing, but it also lowers the resolution. They did, however, offer to send a tech out to look at what is happening, but that is tough for live TV.

I gave Samsung an expert's opinion of what is causing the problem, but no acknowledgement or indication that it will be fixed. This problem goes back several models and people keep asking Samsung to fix it. It also seems to be present even in new models.

The problem as I understand it is that the auto motion plus kicks in randomly despite having it turned off or even in clear which I use. There is some sort of threshold that makes this happen. An engineer that posted in the SammyGo forum found that changing to a specific model eliminated the problem, and that the poster was working on it to see if there was another possibility, but that has yet to happen.

There is another thread going called "Samsung Auto Motion Plus not HD compatible." You might to to go through that thread and read some of the comments.

It's truly sad that Samsung has no respect for its purchasers when a problem has been ongoing for quite some time.

Have you updated the firmware of your tv?, if yes then that's the cause. I used to have a Samsung es6500 and before the update, the AMP was clear with no stuttering, but once I updated, every signal, even 60Hz signal had stuttering/jerkiness, and images were blurry. I returned the TV, and I'm in search for a new one without those issues. I recommend NEVER UPDATE THE FIRMWARE UNLESS YOU ARE HAVING THE ISSUES THAT THE UPDATE RESOLVES. Firmware updates focus only in resolving bugs/issues, THEY NEVER ADD FUNCTIONALITIES OR NEW FEATURES.
post #3190 of 3291
Yes. In fact the Samsung service individual asked me if I had up-dated the firmware. I was told that there were changes made to help with the AMP issue. I responded by sending a copy of what is on the web site with the improvements listed and advised the individual that there was no mention of changes for the AMP, just a series of generic changes that have been pretty much on most of the up-dates to that point.

Unfortunately, some of the up-dates tie directly to things like Netflix and MLB in the SmartHub and not much else.

The only good news is that the picture quality itself has remained consistently good unlike the problems with the new ES series in which picture quality became poorer after recent firmware up-dates. Samsung actual;ly acknowledged the problem in one series and is working on a firmware fix. Imagine that!

It seems like no one talks to each other at Samsung when they work on the firmware up-dates. It is a hit and miss situation, and to top it off, their service people have no clue what are in the firmware updates.

All my other TV's are Sony's and I never, ever had a problems with firmware or the stuttering/jerkiness.

I'm not that old, but I learned a long time ago to not update firmware unless I was having problems. And even then it is debatable wink.gif

I'm afraid that for some reason I'm one of those that can't seem to resist an upgrade. So far it hasn't bitten me but I'm going to make an effort to avoid future upgrades for this panel unless it addresses something I'm looking for!
post #3193 of 3291
Searching a bunch of blogs, I found something interesting. Someone suggested that you need to turn on the AMP, go to custom and set both sliders to 0. The comment was that you had to turn it to turn it off.

I tried it last last night. Watched some live basketball and football and it seemed to me to be a bit better than using clear.

You might find more help in the ES8000 thread but FWIW you can try some of the settings given in that thread or buy a calibration disc and try it yourself.
Nitra posts in the 8000 thread also.

Very interesting. I'd love to hear if this is true and then how one would execute it.

I dunno...I believe there's hardware involved with the micro dimming so I have my doubts.

Hi guys! I'm new to this thread but just have a couple of questions. When I first got my D7000 in April, it stayed connected to the internet and logged in at all times. Then our internet went out once and it wouldn't keep me logged in. Not a big deal. Now I moved and it won't stay connected to the internet or keep me logged in. Every time I turn the tv on, I have to reconnect to the internet. For someone like me, who watches a lot of Netflix and uses Vudu a lot, it's quite annoying. Any suggestions? I've searched near and far, to the depths of the sea and have found nothing but a couple of BS suggestions. Thanks!!

Power was lost during the second stage of a firmware upgrade when it's flashing the new firmware to the samsung mainboard. Now TV is bricked.


- Is it recoverable? Is there a debug tool to reflash the firmware
- Most likely firmware failure not covered under extended warranty I currently have. Will a samsung technician be able to know that the TV was bricked because of fail firmware flash?

Thx

Anyone having trouble with the internet connection on this tv? (I actually have a D7050). Apps are really slow, youtube and browser app aren't opening. Maybe a maintenance?, please help!

Wired or wireless connection? I had problems with my wireless connection so I switched to wired. It seems "sluggish" at times.
