I just updated my pn59d7000 last night. I was on the 1015 firmware but I had an older date on the logic board software. My TV was manufactured December 2011 but it would not take the 59DS_ITOless_DeepBlack.bin. It took the 59DS_ITO_DeepBlack.bin though.

Just wanted to note that I had a heck of a time getting the emulator to work. I was trying to do it from my laptop. First of all, AVG kept throwing a threat warning on it. Some searches online showed it was coming up as a VBA/VBScript trojan threat I think. After I got through that though I kept getting a connection error when trying to issue remote commands. I disabled all AVG/Windows security and even tried a wired connection with my laptop and nothing would work. I could control the volume of the TV with one of the other tabs, but none of the buttons on the remote tab would work. I loaded it up on a desktop PC and it worked fine. Still not sure why. Both were windows 7 64-bit machines and both running the same version of AVG.

I really feel embarrassed I'm
A successful contractor but I can't get this to work. I'm not the most computer savvy person!I been trying to get this emulator to work and now thanks to Zoyd for his input I can't use my Mac for the emulator and it's all I have. I was told to download vbox and I still can't get it do you guys think I am better off having a technician come and swap out my logic board for the updated one? I am about done with this it has consumed me

@akkkmed: yes, do step 2 - logic board update.

Thanks alot zoyd. Can you just confirm for me CS still works as before in 2D and 3D?
Appreciate it

2d for sure. Don't watch 3d so I can't comment on that

Sorry, haven't been following your situation. Are you sure you need logic board update? If so best bet would be to borrow a buddies laptop

Well when I updated from 1013 to 1014.6 the firmware updated but the logic board remained at 11 06 07 and I
Still seeing pops.

You just need to learn how to run Windows on a Mac. You could go to a Mac forum - there will be plenty of guys willing to help out.

At CES Samsung announced 10% lower blacks for the E-series, which is not much but a good marketing point. In order to do that they would have to lower the rate at which pixels get initialized. We already know that the initialization rate goes up with increasing APL which generates the (now smooth) increases in mll. In the other direction the ramp now produces zero initialization pulses at some point. I wonder why there are the ~7 clicks of adjustment between mll on and mll off?


The totally black screen surprised me when I was looking for the points where the new changes in brightness occurred by varying the Brightness control. I was using the same method that I described here.

In September when I did this, in addition to the sudden increase in brightness when raising the Brightness control, there was a sudden decrease down to the normal MLL when reducing the Brightness control back down. Now with the new logic update, under certain reproducible conditions, the screen cuts off completely.

It's a similar effect that my 2009 Panasonic plasmas show in their Vivid mode -- about the same as the Samsung Dynamic mode.

Can someone with a 64D7000 that no longer sees pops after the update post their picture settings? I'm still seeing a lot of pops, in fact, they seem way more frequent than prior to the update.
post #554 of 1615
After having tried most settings posted in the D7000 & D8000 Settings/Calibration thread, I had finally settled on the ones posted by varkeast on 7/7/11 (can't post links yet). I got rid of, or at least greatly reduced, fluctuations using the logic board update method, and those settings still work best for me.

No, it's not new.

My D550 comletely turned off the panel with fullscree 0% input signal before October (when softwares started go wild in the EU) with some Brightness settings around 63 (I can't remember exactly).

And may be I am wrong but I think you also reported the same thing around summer.

ok I got the emulator to communicate with the tv. I hit info and factory and I couldnt get svc to come up. all the tv did was go through the color slides that are on the emulator.any suggestions?
post #557 of 1615

If you hit factory twice it plays the slides, make sure you only press it once after info

Zoyd I'm pretty sure I only hit it once then I waited a little while and hit it again thats why the color slides popped up. after I hit factory should another window pop up? Is that where the svc button is? And if so I wonder why it didn't pop up
post #559 of 1615
Hit 3Speed to quit from burn-in mode.
But it should not start. You should see a blue OSD if you hit Factory only once. (But proceed with 3Speed now.)

Info+Factory is a button combo - need to press them in quick succession. If it works, you'll see the SM on the display - just use the display remote from there, it's easier.

Hi, Janos,

I still stand behind my statement emphatically. Maybe it happened on your European D550 but it never did on my D7000 before the logic update. And I did a lot of experimenting with settings and never saw it before.

Anyway, it is of no consequence since it will not occur on a properly adjusted D7000.

well the guy samsung sent was worthless, didn't even have the logic board update,i think he said he might have to roll bacl the 1019.5 to ba able to do it,he's gonna call samsung tomorrow and let me know,i tried showing him the pops from a movie on netflix and he seemed to think it was because it was a downloaded movie,i told him it happens on cable netflix disc etc. but i didint have a bluray so if he calls samsung and dosen't come back out i guess ill have to try to use the logic board update here myself or call best buy and see what they can do. im pretty mad cause i told sammy i needed the logic board updated and the guy said they never told him that.lol

Finally got my 51D8000 flashed. But one thing is strange. When I watch the demonstration video of the Spears and Munsil disc, I have what seems to be a brightness pop. It happens right as you start the demonstration.

First you see the Lake and the house, as soon as it switches to the picture of the white bridge and the tree, you get a short but noticeable brightness pop. I'm not sure if that's from the TV or the Bluray. Can anyone else confirm this?
post #564 of 1615
I have the 51D450 which doesn't have any network connectivity at all, so I am unable to use the emulator and therefore cannot apply the fix.

The funny thing is my black level is completely stable, even at different picture levels when viewing letterbox content. I do however have mild pops in midtone brightness (gamma) around a certain threshold of picture level. However it is so rare that it's not actually an issue for me. My issue with the TV is actually a lack of red saturation in the 0-20% brightness range, which only occurs on full screen content (window patterns measure fine). The result of this lack of red saturation is a sickly cyan tint to skin tones in the 0-20% brightness range (in the dark or shadowy regions of actors faces). I am hoping this "optimization" of the logic board might help with that issue. In the meantime I have been able to improve it somewhat by adding +2 red and -2 green+blue from the 10-20 intervals in the 10 point white balance control. While significantly improved, it still is a fair way off looking correct.

I think I had that one before the fix, but I have watched that sequence several times since and haven't noticed anything. I'll check tonight.

Yeah, there is the absolute bare minimum of communication between Samsung and the service people. Here in NJ (home of Samsung HQ), they don't send someone from Samsung, the work seems to be contracted out. The guy I had was completely clueless as well, and was clearly trained to make excuses in an attempt to explain away your problems. I think you always have the option to contact Samsung again to tell them you are not satisfied with the service. Eventually, it seems you will get an actual human being at Samsung to review your case, and hopefully sort things out.

Well, sounds like you've at least got it connected properly. Should be pretty easy from there.

Once I had the emulator running and connected, I first verified that I could control the TV with it (changed the channel). With the TV ON, pressing info followed by factory brings up the service menu, superimposed over whatever you are watching. Within that menu you will see a SVC submenu option. I never saw the color break-in images.

Thanks AvidHiker I will give it a go once again later. can I use my samsung remote once the svc submenu shows up in the tv?

p.s. owners of D6900DS - please, give me working already renamed logic.bin for this tv. thanx.

so.
it was 11-02-21
now, i finally upgraded with \\blackness\\TCON\\51DS_DeepBlack.bin (576 КБ (589 824 bytes))
now it's 11-10-31 - see attachment.

in readme it says about 11-11-12

so, was it ok for me in upgrading or nothing actually changed??

Yes.

An alternative method:
- enter the SM with your normal remote (US key sequence in the first post or info-menu-mute-power in the EU)
- hit Factory on the network remote (burn-in slideshow will start)
- hit 3Speed (to quit from burn-in mode)
Use the service tools as described in the first post.
