Samsung PN51D6500

post #1 of 81
Thread Starter 
Picked up this set today and after about 8 hours of use and 3D, i must say that its one of the best 3D sets i've ever seen, even over the 7000 series. Also to get to service menu just turn off tv then press mute, 182 then power and boom your in the service menu.

That is very good news indeed. Do you find the 3D picture brighter than the 2010 models?
post #3 of 81
Any comments on the LCD remote control or the built-in WiFi?
I have one of these currently on order.
How much did you pay?

Yes the 3d is brighter, and i have two presets for regular and 3d, on 3d i put the cell brightness all the way up with 70 on the reg brightness and looks bright, crisp and clean, build in wifi is ok, not a big fan i use ethernet whenever possible, uh the remote is a reg remote not lcd.

hmm, I thought I read this "The PND6500 series also has a LCD Touch Control TV " here:
http://web500.us/samsung-pn51d6500-5...a-tv-and-wifi/
I guess that didn't make into the release version.

Actually, the page above that talks about the touch remote doesn't specifically mention the 51" model; so it is probably only included in the larger D6500 models.

Do you notice a buzzing sound when the sound is off like with the C7000s?

And what are the differences between the D6500s and D7000s?

No, no buzzing, and i dont' think touch remotes made it to any of the tvs

Do you have your 6500 mounted? I am using the stand it came with and it has a slight lean back that I can't seem ti get fixed. I'm wondering if it is just the weight of the TV. Also, the link that was listed also said that the 6500 has a built in Web Browser. I hope you didn't get your hopes up for that because that only comes in the 8000 series

no, mine doesn't tilt, might want to contact samsung or check your install, the stand was kinda tricky to get just right.

Anyway you can post a picture of a profile view of your set? I have taken the stand off and re-pieced it together multiple times now. The lean back isn't enough to notice when you are looking at it straight on, but it definitely tilts back a couple of degrees when you are looking at it's profile. I dont know if it is something to be concerned about being that is probably at an 85 degree angle, but if yours is a perfect 90, I want to make sure I am not harming the set

its tilts back very slightly, no noticable, i think samsung did this on purpose for weight and picture..
post #17 of 81
I was interested in buying one if these until I called Samsung and was informed that they no longer support checkerboard mode on their new plasmas.
Most people don't know or care but for those who do, I thought I'd mention it.

That's very interesting.
I was told that all the yet to be officially released new plasma TVs did not support checkerboard mode.
I asked it it was official and I was informed that is in fact official.
I will now call them back and inform them that your set does support it and ask for an explanation.

Thanks

Two phone calls to Samsung support resulted in two entirely different answers.
Nothing official but it seems all the new Samsung Plasmas do still support all the additional 3D modes that the other companies do not support.

Question to all those who have brought home a 6500 set. I was using the 3D on my 51D6500, with content coming from Time Warner On Demand. To configure the 3D, the directions tell you to use the Over/Under 3D processing to convert the video to 3D. When I ran the 3D, the very top bar of the TV was showing video that should have been located on the bottom of the screen. I am wondering if anyone else has experienced this problem, and if this a video processing issue of the Time Warner set top, or is this a video processing issue from the 6500? If it is the TV I will exchange it before my return policy is up.

(I dont know why the picture is uploading rotating, but the line that runs down the left side of the screen, is really the top of the TV)

no problem here, when you hit the 3d button on your remote, try all the 3d settings until it looks right.

The 3D still looks correct and you still get 98% of the 3D experience, there is just a bar hovering on the top of the screen that is in 2D and should be at the bottom of the screen instead of the top

Hi,

What's the model of glasses you're using for that TV?

Thanks

Other then the buzzing how do you like the 59? I saw it on sale with a starter pack and was thinking about buying it.

It's pretty good. Buzz isn't a huge impact but mine is going back for another one this weekend. I had a string of stuck pixels show up. They disappeared but one, dead in the center.

I'm thinking about pulling the trigger on the 59. Just a little hesitant cuz I do t know if I want to go active 3d or go a passive route.
