Official Samsung UNXXEH6000 Owners' Thread - Page 77

post #2281 of 2546
Considering picking up a UN65EH6000 from Fry's since they are on sale (see great found deals thread) and my local place has one. It will be replacing a 10 year old Mits 65" RPTV, and I'm a little concerned with off-axis viewing, since our sectional couch wraps around to the side a little bit. Can anyone shed some light on how bad the viewing angle is on this unit? At the price, it seems ideal to finally retire this RPTV. I don't need a Smart TV, don't want 3-D, etc... Just a good looking 65" set for a good price.

Before I buy I will be double checking that it has a Samsung Panel (TS01 or TS02), otherwise I'll pass

Any insight would be appreciated

I dont see any bad viewing angles. I would buy it try it out if you dont like it take it back. make sure you update it with a usb flash drive off samsung.com

That's kind of my plan. Thanks for the info on the viewing angle.

Sorry for the potentially stupid question, but after reading that post, I'm confused. Are we supposed to be looking for anything else other than the version code, or if we get TS01 or TS02 we're golden?

I'll definitely need to read the post you linked again in more detail-- I'm about to leave work. I'm very interested in getting a pricematch for the Fry's deal at Best Buy-- hope they're okay complying with my request to look through their stock for the panel I want.

I'm not sure 65" sets even come in Txxx panels. You can check, but they might ALL be Mxxx in that size (samsung may not make any 65" S-PVAs)...
post #2288 of 2546
Should quality be a concern for the 65" size, then?
post #2289 of 2546
Does the UN55EH6050F use the same panels as the UN55EH6000? What exactly is the difference? Tried searching
post #2290 of 2546
Had the UA50EH6000 (in New Zealand) for few months now and thought I'd share my thoughts on it since this thread was helpful for me.

The actual model is UA50E6000M(XRD) and the Panel is a CH01.

My setup involves a Pioneer receiver with output going to HDMI 1 and inputs coming from MySky receiver, DVD, PC/laptop. I regularly play divx/x264 (in both avi and mkv containers) from the usb port without issue. I also have an optical cable running from the TV to the receiver for better audio (than internal speakers) when playing USB content.

I use a Logitech (3-in-1) remote to control the receiver, mysky and TV.

I'm not very picky about everything, but I do notice some issues which may annoy others.

A few notes/observations so far:
* Compared to other TVs at the store, red seemed a bit washed out. This confirms many of the reviews out there about the redness. However, after watching it for this long, it doesn't seem to be too bad.

* On a completely white screen, you can notice slight darkness around the edges. This is probably normal since it's not a fully backlit panel.

* When switching between inputs or channels (when the screen has no signal), there is a noticeable grey vertical line pattern that seems to appear on the left side of the screen. I haven't noticed this on the other side of the screen, but it always does seem to stick out on the left half in one particular spot. That said, that seems to have no effect on the picture quality when there is an image on screen.

* When playing .avi content through the usb port, there's always a point where the audio just dies for a few seconds and reappears. I think this might be specific to divx encoded files since I haven't noticed it on x264 video.

* In some cases when there's a close up shot to someones face, it's easy to notice lip sync issues, but this is not consistent throughout all video I've played on there, so I suspect source problems. I have SPDIF latency set to 0ms.

* The TV *does NOT* support ARC even though my receiver does, that's why I needed the optical cable.

I haven't really calibrated this in any serious way, mainly using the settings posting in this thread and whatever improves image quality when watching TV/DVD/USB. Most of the content being watched on there is either SD/DVD or 720p over Sky (DVB-S). It looks pretty decent and I haven't noticed any annoying blurring or choppiness (which I do notice when its from the source). I've also hooked it up to my PC and played 1080p content, which looked great.


Overall, I think it's a good TV and I got a 5 year warranty, so can't go too wrong really. My first choice would've been a plasma, but given the circumstances, I thought a backlit (albeit not full) LED would be best. IIRC, I think my backup if this one looked bad was a Samsung PS51E531.

If there are any specific questions, let me know and I'll try to help out as much as I can.
post #2291 of 2546
Forgot to ad, there seems to be a new firmware version on the Samsung website 1025 for UA50EH6000M. Anyone tried that yet? I'm hoping it would fix the avi issue, but not sure if it's worth taking the risk of breaking something else. Current version installed is 1019.

Not necessarily.
post #2293 of 2546
I recently had my UN46EH6030 serviced by Samsung directly (intermittent picture/video dropouts) and they first changed the main board (which made no difference) and later changed the panel (which fixed the problem). When I bought my set it had the TS01 Samsung S-PVA panel, and the one I have now also appears to be a Samsung S-PVA. In fact, the PQ between the two is pretty much identical aside for one difference: the black level appears to be somewhat brighter/higher. So, I pulled out my C6 colorimeter yesterday and measured black level and CR. The original panel had a black level of 0.013 fL with backlight at 50% (or at 100% with LED Motion Plus On) in Movie mode with brightness calibrated properly. The new one measures 0.018 fL under similar conditions and this brings my native on/off contrast ratio from the 3K:1 range to the 2K:1 range. My question is whether such variations are to be expected between panels of the same tech (S-PVA) and whether the difference between 0.013 fL and 0.018 fL is worth worrying about.

(To be honest, I wasn't really bothered by the higher black level until I measured it. So, the difference is probably a bigger deal on paper than it is with actual viewing.)

^^^^

Also, when I had the EH5000 and EH6000 with S-PVA panels (TS02), their black levels measured around 0.015 fL under similar conditions.
post #2295 of 2546
I have a UN40EH6000F 40in tv with a s-pva TS02 panel and i was wondering if anyone could confirm whether or not excess bluring/smearing on black or dark areas in a movie or video game is normal or a sign that the tv or panel is defective? Here is a video of it the the lord of the rings the two towers you should be able to notice the black areas on their hoods smearing out of place.There are also other videos in the channel showing this blur. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZZuBrcAFEXI&feature=youtu.be If this is because of a defect would samsung repair or replace the panel since they already replaced the mainboard awhile ago and it didnt fix the problem?The warrenty is still up i think.




The brightness is set to 45,contrast 100, auto motion plus 0 judder 10 blur reduction,digital noise filter is not on,picture mode is standard, Is played on a ps3.

Hard to tell from that video.. I have a TS02 panel and im pretty satisfied with it. Much better than the LG I had. Although certain instances with shadows in video games dont look to good. (Im really not sure if thats just the xbox or tv)
post #2297 of 2546
There are other videos that i have in the channel that should show the problem more noticably.
post #2298 of 2546
Ok this question is going to sound dumb but here goes... I bought this tv refurbished, and don't know if I need to download and install the firmware update off the samsung website. How do I check if my TV already has the updated firmware? And if I need to download the new firmware (which Ive already done via usb stick on my laptop, how do I get that to install on my tv? Obviously I've put the usb into the tv but when I go into usb it only has options for video, pictures, etc,... Also the download on the samsung website for the firmware update comes in a zip file so do I need to download winzip and unzip it before I stick it into my tv? I have no idea what format it has to be before I stick my usb with the firmware on it into the tv on the back.. unfortuneatly on my laptop it automatically put it in a vlc file (since I chose vlc as my default for playing videos) so I have no idea what file format to put this firmware download at and then how to even upload this into the tv once I stick my usb memory stick with the firmware on it into the tv. Any replies would be much appreciated, thanks!
post #2299 of 2546
Just unzip and drag onto the USB if nothing happens when you plug into tv its up to date already.
post #2300 of 2546
hey guys - the 40" variant, UN40EH6000, is $650 at Dell right now - with a return of $350 in Dell gift cards -- meaning if you need the gift cards or want to resell them you can get the 40" for around $300ish.

I thought that was a reasonable deal and scooped one up. Thread is over at slickdeals.net

Check your current firmware: Menu-->Support-->Contact Samsung-->Arrow Down - look at software version; this number compare to the one on the Samsung site to determine if you need to update.

If yes, you need to download & unzip the file (Windows does this with its own built in program or yes, get WinZip or a similar prog) and make sure you copy the folder/file inside folder it creates on the ROOT of the USB drive.

Then put the USB stick in the TV's USB jack and perform the upgrade in Menu-->Support-->Software Upgrade. Make sure the power isn't interrupted and don't push any buttons until it completes. Your TV may restart and if you want to make sure your settings are preserved you should note them since they may reset to default.

Anyone know abouth the FH series for 2013? I just picked up an UN46EH6000 for roughly the same price as a UNFH6030 2013 model. Both panels are Samsung or TS01/TS02 aleast. Should i take back the EH and get the FH. Only thing I noticed was 3D was added as a label.
post #2303 of 2546
The FH6030 is the 2013 version of the EH6030. The EH6030 was basically the same as the EH6000, but it added 3D and had the nicer menu interface. The FH6030 is the direct backlighting choice from Samsung for 2013, and the FH series may have improved pic quality. Also adding 3D reportedly helps with pic quality. But if you are satisfied with your current EH model, then be happy with that. But the FH6030 will have the better menu interface, but be sure you have a TS02 Samsung panel, or whatever the current Samsung panel may be.

in case anyone wants to know what panel versions are available for a given model and screen size, here's a good search tool

Looking at the service menu my UN46EH6000 appears to be a 60htz model since it has the Type/Option of 46A6AFOD? I can change it to 46A1AFOD, but i don't think i'd want to do that. I was under the impression that my TV was a 120htz TV, but not according to the Service Menu Type/Option

....hmm interesting! I got the same exact tv a week ago and need to check mine. I got a TS02 panel. Hate to have to take it back due to false advertising cause I love this thing!

Please update when you do. I haven't read through all 77 pages, but it appears there is no mention to Type/Option within the Service menu.

Edit: I just hooked the TV up to my Hackintosh via HDMI, and the display reads 1920 x 1080 60p. For refresh rate, the only options i get are 24, 30, and 60. I was hoping a 120 would be available. Maybe this 120 is actually 60 with a black frame injected every other frame?

Edit 2: I understand now that the TV will only receive a 60Htz frequency, and the TV processes the signal interjecting an extra frame every other frame, to get to 120. Was reading up on Toms Hardware: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/290737-33-120hz-displaying-60hz-refresh-rate

Picked up a 65EH6000 (MH01 panel) from Walmart for $1198. First HDTV! Couple questions after reading thru 50 pages of this thread:

1) Going to use "HDMI's" settings as his/her's was one of the few that pertained to the 65" version. Any other suggestions?

2) Hooking it up to my old Yamaha RX-V2400 receiver (pre-HDMI). My thought is HDMI out from FIOS HD-DVR (output at 16:9 1080i or 720p?) to Sammy 65", then Digital Optical Out to Yamaha Optical In. Will I get 5.1 out of the Sammy to the receiver or can I bypass the TV and run from HD-DVR to Yamaha? Worried about lipsync issues.

3) Since its my first HDTV, how do I safely clean the screen? I know not to use Windex, but what does everyone use?

4) Had a pretty sizeable cloud along the bottom middle (almost looked like glare from the Sun but it was night) thats almost gone with some gentle pressure using a microfiber cloth.

Thanks for your help and especially those in this forum that put the time in to get the most out of this TV.
post #2309 of 2546
So on my old LCD, there was a picture mode where it would automatically switch from 16:9 to 4:3 when you switch from HD channels to SD (instead of stretching). I can't seem to find anything like that with my UN65EH6000. I've tried all the modes. I''m the type who doesn't like his SD stretched. biggrin.gif

1018.1 firmware and anyone interested in the 65" ( who doesnt want to deal with Frys) can pricematch at Walmart. Bring the ad and be prepared to get it blessed by everyone from the floorperson to the Waltons, but it does work...
