Official Samsung UNXXEH6000 Owners' Thread - Page 78

post #2311 of 2546
Hi all, brand new here although this thread has helped me in making my purchase of a un55eh6050 from Costco. I originally purchased a p55ut50 plasma from there for 130 less than this tv, but alas, our living room was just too bright for the mirror like finish of it. I just got home and set this samsung up and already have a couple questions. I've been reading this thread for a few days now and know I've seen info on this stuff here, but trying to search for it (even using the search function) hasn't gotten me anywhere.

1. My firmware is the 1018.1 dated for Sept 2012. The samsung site lists 1012.3 from June 2012 as the most recent. Is this correct? I'm assuming the 1018.1 is the newest right?

2. I put in Band of Brothers on Blu Ray and noticed an issue. The audio appears to be out of sync. I didn't notice this at all watching HD cable for a few minutes, but it's very noticeable on the BOB blu ray. How can I correct this, I haven't been able to locate anything in the menu for this? I am using an Onkyo receiver for my audio and no audio is being sent to the TV. I didn't have this issue with my old samsung LCD (lnt4665f) or the plasma either. Any ideas?

3. They had two panel options available, AH03 and TH02. From what I read and searched here, I picked up one of the TH02 panels. Any thoughts on the differences between the two?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Hi AVS DAD,
I have the 65EH6000 and have no issues with view angles. I usually clean it with a microfiber cloth.I have also used "HDMI's" settings and his were the best. I do have very little clouding around the corners, typical of LED sets, keep an eye out, if yours is pretty bad I would return it.

I agree on the off-angle viewing and overall the TV has exceeded my expectations. The one cloud i mentioned i pressed out with a microfiber cloth.

Regarding "HDMI"s settings, are you doing it in standard or movie? I noticed that in really dark scenes it gets too dark, where I should be able to see something but can't. Is this the auto dimming mentioned in the standard mode or a contrast/brightness setting I need to tweak?

Also, I'm not getting 5.1 out of the Digital Optical and having to use 7-channel stereo to get sound out of my other 3 speakers. Is it supposed to output 5.1? Hate to invest in another A/V Reciever...

Thanks for your feedback. Didn't think I would have a 65" Samsung for the price i paid and comparing it to the Vizios and Sharps in the same size/price range, it ain't even close....

It's been about a week now with the 55rh6050 and I'm almost completely pleased. Almost.

I am loving the black levels, the colors and especially the picture in our brightly lit living room. However, I've noticed an oddity that I'm not sure is just normal LCD behavior or a bad panel.

My viewing distance is roughly 12 feet and on light backgrounds, I can clearly see a 3-4" area along the right and left sides that are lighter than the rest of the picture causing a loss in contrast. This area is consistent along the entire edge. It appears as a lighter area with a slightly darker line and causes the picture to kind of washout along the right and left sides. This is noticeable during normal viewing, especially with lighter/solid backgrounds (like a baseball field, sky scenes, etc.)

Is this normal for this panel or does anyone else have this lightening along the sides? Looking at the back of it it looks like the it follows the ridge around the panel on the back where it gets thicker (the backlight housing?) I'm assuming this is what's causing it.

Well I HAD to buy this TV This past friday because the idiots at SEARS had the wrong price in front of the TV and the sales person was too stupid to realize it. I got this TV for 499 and sold my old Sony DLP for 300.00 LOL. I just had to get it. All in all after calibrating it based on settings on this forum the picture looks GREAT!! Already loaded TRON Legacy on it and it was awesome. Its the UN60EH6000

First blu-ray movie I watched on this TV was MIB3.. It looked pretty amazing, I especially noticed the blue and purple colors were more vivid than my old 52" 62U Aquos ($3,000 in 2007). It's my mom's TV that I researched here and bought for her. She loves it.. I got it at Sears online for $789 on black Friday and it was the 55" Samsung panel. Amazing TV for the price.

I have a UN55EH6000 with the 1018 firmware, should I install the 1012 firmware. Will this improve picture quality for me?
post #2318 of 2546
Why would you downgrade the firmware?
post #2319 of 2546
The quoted poster said it was an upgrade.
post #2320 of 2546
Well now I'm getting bummed about buying this set because its a HS01 Panel. Yet to me pictures looks great but the fact its a Sharp Panel is just eating at me even though I got set for 499.

If the picture looks good to you then who cares what panel is in it. Just enjoy your TV and don't stress about the little things in life.

Signed,

Someone who stresses way to much over the little things life. Lol

Question for the gurus:

I bought the UN40EH6030 for PC desktop gaming. Love everything about it in 2D. But i have 2 issues with 3D:

1) 1080 at 24hz is annoying. Is there an EDID overide somewhere that will let me set the TV to 60hz?

2) My TV has major major crosstalk. From my research I was under the impression there was little to no crosstalk with these sets. Is there anything at all I can do (buy better glasses or something?) to eliminate or at least minimize the crosstalk? (my glasses are the newer SSG-5100GB)

If this TV didn't have such bad crosstalk I would never leave the house cuz gaming on a 40" monitor in 3D is absolutely mesmerizing. Guild Wars 2 looks freakin amazing... except for the dang crosstalk.

Thanks for any help,
Ethan

the 3D also has tons of crosstalk on my UN46EH6030 (US model)... this makes it useless despite the good depth it adds over 2D

dang it man. i did my research and this just isn't mentioned. as bad as the crosstalk is i'm shocked this hasn't been talked about repeatedly by people, cuz like you said it pretty much makes the 3D useless. actually i'm a little pissed they'd even put a TV with crosstalk this bad on the market. I'm fortunate i'm the only one in my house who uses my PC so i'm the only one who has to put up with it, but i was really hoping that it was just a fluke and other 6030's aren't like that.

guess i'll have to put up with it until i find another suitable replacement.

*anyways*

so does anyone know where to find an EDID override that will let the display run at 60hz in 3D? I've tried a random bunch of EDIDs from google searching, and so far none of them worked. But i haven't found anywhere that says 'this EDID will work with 2012 Samsung 3DTV's' so i'm hoping maybe someone here knows where to look...

I think most mid-range ES or EH series TVs with 3D are like this, with the high end ones being much better (like the ES8000, for example)

also, on the EH6030/6070 (they're the same TV, the EH6070 is just a hardware bundle that includes a BD player) the 3D is more like 720p instead of true 1080p

I have a question about the HDMI inputs on the 6030. When fully inserting the HDMI cable, is it normal to still see a significant portion of the hdmi connector of the cable still visible? like 2/10"?

I ask because it (the same HDMI cable) seems to go much further into the inputs of my AVR/other HDMI devices.

Is my TV TSxx or THxx?



Hello All, I just bought a 50inch UN50EH6000 TV from Amazon.com (via Beach Camera). Prior to purcchasing, I learned that the best versions are TSxx or Thxx. I asked the sales department to make sure that it was and they said its the TS version. But when the product arrived, the outside box says CH01.

Am I being ripped off? When I called them they said that according to Samsung all their products are now CH01.
Then they said check with Samsung and Samsung would not help help me to find out about this.

Do any of you know if I did in fact receive a THxx or TSxx? Maybe I need to open it and check the actual label.

I am still in the timeframe to return it.

Thank you for all your help.

ps. if i should return the tv do you have any suggestions where I can buy this with Samsung panel at a great deal?

I have the UN65EH6000 and noticed last night that the HDMI cable plugged into #2 shows about 1/4" of the gold connector, while #1 seems completely flush. Have you tried different cables, maybe they vary?
post #2330 of 2546
As mentioned previously, I have the 65" EH6000. Very happy with the set.

I know this is probably off-topic (and not this set specific), but one added benefit I've found is the energy savings moving from a 35" Mitsubishi Tube TV to this LED tv. My electric bills are down 25% from the same period last year month-to-month! Did not expect that big of a difference. if it continues, this TV will pay for itself in a little more than two years...

I also have UN50EH6000 and walked down the same path as you did. I have a CH panel. It seems the 50" only comes with CH panel. This is after reading through pretty much everything out there about EH6000. No one has reported a non-CH 50" that I am aware of.

Having said that, I am highly satisfied with my CH. Calibration and setting it up properly is HUGELY important. Some say it's more important than the panel type. I spent several weeks dialing mine in. I suggest if you really wanted TS, than switch to either 46" or 55". But focusing on calibrating your 50" CH would likely result in much satisfaction.

First time visitor/poster. I hope this is the right thread to post.

On an impulse i just bought a new tv, while furniture shopping i realized there was a pricing mistake on a tv and bought it, with the thought i can cancel it before it gets delivered.

I bought a UN60EH6003FXZC. I realize that its a basic tv (ie not smart) but i am perfectly fine with that. What i would like to know what model year it is, and the general review for the TV. Will be mounted above fireplace in the family room, somewhat bright in there during the day.

Looking for peoples thoughts and experiences with this model. I see talk of TS panel and MH, firmware and this is all out of my knowledge grasp right now.

Cheers.

Hello. I'm looking for the absolute best 32" HDTV I can get for watching movies via my PC (.mkv files) and playing games with a PS3/PS4. I saw the 32" 6030 and loved the picture quality. This model seems to be discontinued. Do you have an idea if this HDTV is similar/worse/better than the Samsung F5000 or F5500? Is the F6300 the superior model?

Thank you!
post #2334 of 2546
The lighter contrast that people are seeing on the left and right side of the panel also exists on the top and bottom.dqdpMG I happened to see a scene where the entire panel was filled with a light gray overcast sky. I put 2 pieces of wood underneath my tv stand in the back 1X1X6 which made the top of the tv move foreword about 3 inches and that made a BIG difference in the picture quality.mad.gif
post #2335 of 2546
Just got 55eh6000 come in. While my family doesnt really care/or notice pq at all, i want to calibrate it nicely, so they wow a bit.

Question is if the tv require break in (is this the right word?) before calibration?

Edit: started playing with it, First impression it - the remote sucks big time...

Another question, MY only source is from htpc, should I use movie + warm 2 or use PC mode, is there a manual explaining the difference?

Sorry for double post but this is a new question. I ran some quick profiling with my colorimeter, 55eh6000 th02. I am getting about high 80s% sRGB/bt709 volume. Does the number seems right, initially i expected close to 100% coverage/volume.

I understand pc mode itself doesn't dim but when i use XBMC and set it to match my video refresh rate this unlocks standard and dynamic settings while watching movies i dont want it to dim though i want it to be like when i watch normal TV for some reason my screen doesn't dim.

Just a follow up on this i finally figured out how to stop this TV from auto dimming when watching movies from PC.

When i was doing ton of research before i read people had luck with other Samsung TV by turning up the brightness threw the TV but this doesn't do anything it would still auto dims.

You have to actually go into your PC video card settings and increase the brightness for your TV i set mine to 57 and this stopped the TV from auto dimming.
Then just adjust your TV settings accordingly.

luckily my cable box is fine and don't experience this crap when watching tv


Example: default is 50%

the auto-dimming on my EH6030 only affects YCbCr signals not RGB (so setting your source to RGB when possible will likely disable the auto-dimming)

labeling the input as "PC" also works (and is the best option for a PC source)
post #2339 of 2546
actually I'm fairly certain you can turn off the auto-dimming in the "System" menu and go to "Eco Sensor" and turn it off. I'm like 99.9% certain that's what I did to turn off the auto-dimming on my 6030.

I think that's what I did on the 6030 that I had. And also what I did on the ES6150, along with turning of Energy Saving.
