Thanks for all the juicy details posted in this thread! Been a lurker for a weeks time now (before I bought my TV), and all the posts made me take take the choice to buy this great TV.. I just moved, and with 5-6 meters viewing distance, I surely needed a big screen - Since it is impossible for me to darken the whole room due to family and so on, a projector definitely wasn't the right choice, hence this set for me - And I absolutely love it! But but
I'm really not the biggest expert on this subject, and I thought I would try to ask some of you guys if you can help me with my problem..
After using the set for some hours, and finding the correct calibration settings (I've tweaked the settings from one of the first posts in the thread to my likings), some serious clouding began to catch my eye.. I tried to go back to stock settings, but this only made it much much worse (I didn't pay attention to the clouding in the beginning of the setup).. If I set Backlight to -30, then it's still 20-30% visible, and this is a way too low setting for general viewing.. Current is -4.
Since I am no expert, I would like to ask: Is this "normal"? I know clouding is inevitable on some sets, but this seems too extreme to be realistic.. It really bothers my eyes.. Here are some examples:
So, the big question.. Do you guys think there is anything to do? I could understand from some of the 70" owners in the other thread that it seemed as an issue for them also, and also a guy who got an replacement.. Should I contact Sharp regarding this issue? Seems a bit unfair for such a pricey set, if they wouldn't do anything
Once again, thanks for a great thread and for making me help taking my decision! My model is the Scandinavian one; LC-80LE646S.
Edit: By the way, I just moved in about 3-4 days ago, so everything is still a mess
Radiator gets removed in a couple of days, and new furniture on its way also.. Using the Vogels EFW 6445 mount for the set, highly recommended if anyone is curious..
