Not that I have seen. I'll get the level out when I get home and post back.

Hi folks. Has anyone gotten the Freetalk camera to use Skype with this TV. My family uses Skype quite a bit now on my PC upstairs. It seems like using the 844U would be pretty cool but the camera is $129 and I was wondering if anyone knows if the Skype application on the TV and/or the camera are any good?

Thanks .......... Rob

Ok thanks. Mine just seems to be leaning forward a bit and I'm not sure if this is normal. Sharp stated there would be some tilting/leaning but just doesn't seem right when you can physically notice it
post #3034 of 3622
Got the level out. Perfectly fine. Grab a level. There is an optical illusion that does make it appear to be just slightly tilted, but it doesn't.

I think you are right about level. Seems the entertainment stand is leaning forward. May have to adjust feet. Thanks again! I'll keep you posted. Did you calibrate yours if so is the disc disney wow worth it? Bestbuy wanted 200 to do a calibration but i feel that is kind of high.

This is what the box looks like:


The deal you got on these glasses is amazing. i would love to pick up a couple pair myself, but the area best buys I have checked out are not having the same offers. I even called out of state to a store and no deals. What store did you go to for this deal?

When I bought my TV last May I had Paul's TV throw in extra glasses for $30 each. Sales guy mentioned that was their cost and couldn't go lower. Best time to make that deal is when you are buying the set!

I did get 2 glasses not thinking I would see a need for more. I had no idea 3D would look so good on this TV. SO, getting a couple more at a discount or clearance is what I am looking for

Professionally. Most of us here have not been pleased with BB calibrations. They don't do a complete calibration. If you do a professional, go to the calibrations thread. Inside is a request thread. They will answer you there. Enjoy.

I purchased the first two pairs at the Best Buy in Glenview, IL. At the time, I didn't realize how good of a deal it was, or I would have grabbed more. A couple days later, I went back to the store, but they were out of stock. I then went over to the Best Buy in Niles, IL and bought the last four pairs they had. It's worth noting that the second store still had them listed at full price on the sales floor. The salesperson was actually shocked that they were so cheap when he scanned it.

I will check it out. Thank you. Right now the tv connected but I am not sure if things I see is normal or not. The last couple of movies I watched blue lines appeared at times and people skin seems greenish at times too. Maybe this is the price you pay for a big screen. I am really not sure.
This is all new to me so I apologize for the constant questions. I am just trying to wrap my head around all this.

Thanks again

Have you tried a different HDMI cable?
post #3043 of 3622
The 844 does have a slight green push. Most of it can be calibrated out as to not be noticable during normal content viewing. What do you mean by "blue lines"? Some directors use a blue filters which makes kind of a blue line streak. Indy 4 is one example.

Playstation 3D glasses or Sharp G20 3D glasses for best picture on a 844u 80inch?  

Forget comfort!

post #3045 of 3622
Hello all,

I just received my 844u and turned it and was a bit unhappy with the out of the box Picture Quality. I see that there are numerous posts with different calibration settings. I also understand that is very subjective as far as your own personal preference as far as the type of Picture you enjoy. If anyone can shed some light as to which settings will give you the best PQ will be helpful. I like my picture a bit brighter. I tried the Movie mode with Suzooks settings and its a bit to dark for me.

I f anyone can shed some light would be greatful

When I first received my 844U, the PQ OOB experience was very disappointing. I compared the
Sharp PQ to my Panasonic plasma 65 and had some buyer's remorse, like what did I get myself into. But I have since tweaked all my settings and my sharp PQ is now even better than my Panasonic's PQ if that is possible. There are various settings you can try. CNET also has some settings. Look into the Sharp 632 forum, there are some settings there which are very good. Be patient and enjoy the process.
post #3047 of 3622
Thanks for the reply, Can you enlighten me as to what your settings are? Thanks again
post #3048 of 3622
I have had my 844u for about 4 months now, and am generally happy with it. The only thing that I am a bit disappointed on is the 3D. I don't feel I am getting the "pop" that I should be getting. I also see shadowing or double images quite often. Would anyone be able to help me improve this? What are the settings that you all have the TV aet at for 3D viewing?

I have watced at least 10 different movies, so I'm pretty sure that i have enough of a sample size.

There are a lot of user custom settings that you can find searching the thread. Nothing beats an ISF calibration, but you can also go the cheaper route and by a calibration disk and use that to tweak settings.

I just went with the factory settings and tweaked standard mode to my liking and use that when watching live TV programming, and I actually like dynamic fixed especially watching Blu-ray Disney/Pixar, etc.

and I tweaked the dynamic mode for Blu-ray movies. it just takes time, and patience. Just remember that there is nothing in this world that is perfect and if you try to obsess to much on it, you will have buyers remorse and you will never get to enjoy your set.

I just set it to my tastes and enjoy...

I use the Monopirce Ultra-Slim Low Profile Wall Mount Bracket for LCD LED Plasma (Max 165Lbs, 37~63inch)
sits about 1" form the wall, and only cost $14

Unfortunately there is no ISF mode for 3D on this set. ISF Day and Night are it. Have to calibrate one of the two 3D modes.

Can anyone tell me if this is normal, I've had the TV about 3 weeks now and am very disappointed in the pic quality. I've calibrated using the best of what I've found around here, and bright pic look good, Blue ray looks better but dark scenes of any kind are about unwatchable, the light bleeds through any dark parts, including the black bars at the top and bottom, these photos are just of the TV on with no source, after idk 10-20 sec the entire screen will go black, but looks like a lot of hot spots and 3 lines, tried to watch the dark knight rises yesterday and it was horrible. Do I need to send back? or does it need a better calibration?
post #3053 of 3622
I went into store and checked 857 by myself.
Short story - I was not impressed, so ordered 844 right away.
I hope not to get many defects in it when it'll be delivered.

btw - I also checked new Sony 4K - it's edge lit and yes it has light bleeding all over edges and uniformity issues can't be justified by by that high price - IMHO. Yes, from a distance 4k slow demo fragments were looking cool, but sport fragments killed it as content can't be higher 30 fps at 4k.

thats not abnormal but as much as I hate to say it, a proper calibration is needed to get the best out of this set and diminish what you are seeing in those pics !!!
post #3055 of 3622
Agreed. I was not impressed with the set in dark scenes either. Been completely satisfied since I had a complete calibration done.

post #3056 of 3622
Hmm. This issue is happening on the new 857 it's seems too. Go here and scroll down a bit. Your pics look similair to the other guys pics:

post #3057 of 3622
Yah very similar to the other post though his seems a bit more uniform where as I have the hot spots in the corners and the 3 lines as if it were 3 different panels put together as one. also i'm not sure if if the back light is full array or just back light on the 844? if its not full array then that would explain the 3 lines of LEDs. I had planned on getting a pro to come out and calibrate it but wanted some opinions before paying someone to come out just to have to send it back for another one and do it all over again.
post #3058 of 3622
I just asked that question in the other thread I posted above. They are saying the 844 is full array

Make sure your set is adjusted properly with the backlight set to a comfortable level - NOT the dynamic modes. I have my 632U at -4 backlight on STANDARD mode and the black level is very satisfying with ZERO clouding and light areas.
Look at the screen straight on. From an angle you will always see lightened areas where the viewing angle is greatest - likely caused by the polarized way light emanates from the screen.
I hope that resolves most of the leaking light issue you are experiencing.

can you provide your TV settings for:
1. backlight
2. contrast
3. brightness

keep in mind as lower contrast as better calibration results, but as dimmer resulting picture will be (lets say around 100 for Y), so to compensate you'd increase backlight to get to comfort or 140 range for white point.
increasing backlight leads to light leakage and as result uniformity issues

so it's all about balance those values
