I have your fix:

Pair it with the remote right under neath the samsung logo on the center bottom. It'l work like a charm.

Thats where the sensor is.
post #62 of 113
the remote paired easily that way.. now I really found out how useless the qwerty keyboard is and how horrible the youtube and facebook interface is..

A bigger problem however..

My tv is horribly dark.. I need some settings other than the one on the first page that people are using.. this is unwatchable, and I do not understand why. doesnt matter if it daytime with a little light or nighttime with no light in the room..

Please let me know on this.. thanks All

A lot of people probably do have this set, but the thread is inactive because it is a good set. That should be good news. Last year's C6900 set had an inactive thread as well because it was a good set. The C6300 and C6500 thread was very active, but not for good reasons. I bought a C6900 about 10 months ago and it has been great.

Regarding calibration settings, you need to accept that calibration is only performed in the service mode by professionals with expensive equipment and technical training. Users make user adjustments. Sometimes, they use software to adjust user controls to a little finer degree, but this does not constitute calibration.

User adjustments are in the eye of the beholder and I have found that the recommendations of some technically sophisticated Forum posters do not suit me in any way shape or manner. The only way is to make your own user adjustments. There's nothing like trial and error. These sets can always take you back to the factory settings if you have to start over.

I have some pretty decent settings on mine i'l post when i'm around it.

The interface for facebook and netflix truely is crap. Fortunately its not like its stuck that way. Can't wait for an update that starts to get things in line!
post #66 of 113
to both of you.. I agree with the no problems.. also i appreciate any good apps that anyone knows of.. I hope they do an update to make the qwerty remote work with .. I was contemplating exchanging it for the 6000 because i really don't think i will use 3d much.. but i havent read on it to see how many problems it has.. would be nice if they still sold the c6900./ they might, i havent checked..

I presume that the D6900 is even better than the C6900. Why not stick with it? I read somewhere that the auto motion plus is improved over the C6900. Losing the 3D wouldn't do much for you.
post #68 of 113
i agree with you unless there was a big price difference.. I hope someday the active glasses become more affordable.. I have not tried the 3d since I don't yet have a player and that is another issue about which one to buy.. I won't use it that much so..?

So with this set I have my HTPC hooked up via HDMI. I have changed the name / selected "PC" for that Source as recommended by the owners manual. This gives the best picture clarity from my HTPC, but the colors are slightly muted / hazy / grayed out. I can switch to another Source "Name" and that brings the colors back up but loses the clarity.

The picture options in PC mode are very limited. Does anyone know the best way to hook up an HTPC to this set?

how inactive this thread is... How long do you guys think it will take Samsung to get their internet apps and browser working correctly or do you think they will even try.. it is useless to have this qwerty keyboard on the remote at this point.. I am disappointed in the way they did this..

If they haven't done it by now, it's not a good sign that they ever will. They're already focused on working on the next year's models. Pretty much all of the apps are useless. I love the great picture, but Samsung would really have to do something with their crap apps before I'd consider buying from them again. Quite unfortunate.

Hi there, just purchased the 46" version and love the picture but have a couple issues.

1. The bluetooth is not working as I cannot sink the qwerty remote or 3d glasses. Have tried sinking in multiple locations, doing resets, etc. NO luck. I did the phone test and there is no detection of the TV's bluetooth. I have a samsung service tech scheduled, but am debating just taking it back to Best Buy to get a new set.

2. I have an old school Denon AVR-1400 reciever with monster cable audio connections (no optical). What do I need to make this connection to the TV's audio out plug?

thanks for the help.

Yes, I tried this multiple times and still nothing. Also, tried it within 30 seconds of tv turning on. Did a master reset on TV and remote, still nothing.

Has anyone every heard of this issue with no signal from the bluetooth?

I had this problem, heck even try pairing it by putting the remote behind the bottom center. It is very stubborn, I had a headache and a half with it.

Hi guys,

I thought I should also post to this thread.

I just wanted to advert you, that there is a problem regarding the whole D6 LED Smart TV Line.

The problem is that the TVs reduce the resolution in 3D Mode.
Because of this the picturequality is reduced to nearly SD Quality (and not FULLHD as it is sold)

You don't believe?

visit this thread:
http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...php?p=21019813

We also got a thread in the SamyGo forum:
http://forum.samygo.tv/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=2346

We noticed this because of this test:
http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk/news/samsu...1108131337.htm


And also created a wikipage:
http://wiki.samygo.tv/index.php5/D6x...L_HD_3D_Defect

HERE YOU CAN DOWNLOAD A TESTPIC FOR FREE TO CHECK THE IMAGEQUALITY.


I hope that there is some reply.


Greetings Jimmy

For those that own the 6900 - what are your experiences with viewing angle? I was looking at best buy and didn't seem to bad vs I was looking at a few sonys and when I stood in front of the TV's about 12-15' back and then took a big side step either way - picture totally became washed out. So I'm leaning toward the 6900.....others have said the 6500 or even the 7000/8000 are like the Sony's.... Thoughts?

This is my main purchasing point as none of my seats are in front of the TV - all are off to one side or the other... Thanks!

I started off with a UN55D7000L from Best Buy and it had terrible clouding in all four corners. I thought it was supposed to be better based off all the stories here and consumer reports. Everyone says avoid the 8000 series. Consumer Reports rated the 7000 really high on the chain over the 8000.

So I got a second 7000 and it had way less clouding and light areas around the edge but it had a dead pixel right in the middle of the screen. Here I was on my third one from a different Best Buy. This one has a August build date. I thought I had a winner but no. This one had a partially dead pixel and really bad clouding.

I went back to best buy today and picked up a 6900. I was pretty worried because it was 120hz instead 240Hz. The 6900 is the only model below the 7000 that has WIFI and qwerty keyboard.

I get it home and I'm stunned. It has a build date of September. The motion looks really good without much blur at all. There is just a little but its no big deal. There is no screen uniformity problems at all. No backlight bleed or clouding anywhere in dark scenes.

Best of all it has no dead pixels. I went over it pretty hard with the test patterns. Maybe I lucked out because the floor model had a dead pixel.


My only gripe is this one has that newer firmware that causes Netflix to have the soap effect even when clear motion is set to off. I think there is a way I can flash it back but I haven't looked into it.


I hope this helps.
post #80 of 113
Thanks- I have been seeing a trend in the various boards with exactly what you describe. In regards to motion blur...I have a 5 year old 46" Sony XBR3 and I don't notice any blurring on that which bothers me....if I can't notice it on the 5 year old LCD - I doubt I'll notice it on a 120hz set....!

I just noticed something that bugs me about the 6900 that I didn't notice about the 7000. I'm getting judder that I didn't notice before. I was watching Shrek 4 on Blu-Ray when I noticed it. I thought there wasn't supposed to be any judder if my player is able to do 24p. Turning up judder reduction will eliminate it if I max it out but I end of with the soap opera effect again. Is this normal? I'm no expert so any enlightenment would help.

I wouldn't be much help either with jutter....... Could you possibly tell me if your noticing any off angle degradation? My primary seating positions will be about 11' back and 4-5' to each side....gives me an off angle of about 22 degrees from center.... I'm really struggling with this as I should probably got to plasma - but I have 3 windows and probably too much ambient light and the Sony's I looked at were only usefull to about 8-10 degrees...Ughhh!

There is some degration off angle but for the most part its the blacks that kind of turn a really dark grey on the the edges. The 6900 series seems to have a more narrow field or view than the 7000. I have a pretty large sectional in front of the TV so I was able to look at it from all angles. To be honest I don't have anything to compare it too because I have never owned a plasma. My prior to to the UN5D7000 and 6900 was a Toshiba 42650ZU from 2009. Its viewing angles were really bad. I watch TV is a very dark controlled room.

Just a side thought... I was reading that 240hz tv's have less judder than 120hz when compared without auto motion plus because of 5:5 vs 10:10 looking smoother. Maybe I'm talking out of my rear but I'm hoping an expert chimes in.

We just purchased the 55D6900 from Future Shop and were initially not impressed with the display. We had the "Soap Opera" effect going on and didn't like it at all. We set the video settings exactly as per Soundlovr's settings above and all worked very well. We may tweak further, but so far so good. The image is amazing now. However, I was just watching an HD version of Alien's off a cable station and noticed something peculiar.
During the scene where the aliens are crawling along the ceiling and the marine's start shooting away at them in a dark red-lit room, the blast and flash from the marine rifles cause major pixellation of the image. The pixels are also large, probably about an inch to 2 inches across. We tried turning the Auto MOtion back on, and it the pixels still showed up.

Any ideas?
post #86 of 113
Does anyone else have some vertical banding in the backlight? Trying to decide if mine is defective.
post #87 of 113

Bought a UN60D6900VF a couple of months ago, updated the firmware and now it's a brick. Now the motherboard needs to be replaced and we won't have any TV for over a week.

Now the TV just flashed the "Samsung Smart TV" boot-up logo and then goes to a black screen. Then it repeats the cycle.

How come this problem has been known for over a year and it's still not fixed?!?

Thank you Samsung! Great FW update!

It just sounds like an error in the cable datastream; not uncommon. I wouldn't worry about it unless it's a consistent occurrence on cable/dvd/blu-ray/etc.
post #90 of 113
Just picked up this TV a week or so ago. Is there a shortcut on the remote to change the picture settings. Say, if I want to go from watching sports, to playing the ps3 and changing the setting to "gaming", can I change the view with the click of a button on the remote, or do I have to navigate through the onscreen settings everytime?

Also, anything I need to know before setting up and messing around with the 3d setup?

Thanks!
