Official Sharp AQUOS LC-60LE847U & LC-70LE847U Owners Thread - Page 41

post #1201 of 2660
I have the 847U. When set to 3D AutoChange Mode, my TV will sometimes think it is 3D mode and swtich and swtich back. Does anybody else have this issue? I am hoping it is not a problem with my TV.

I would get the 8470U for sure. You can also get the 847U. They are pretty much the same except for several items. You also get two pair of 3D glasses with the model 8470U. You can read the specs on it. The big difference is the two year replacement that you get with Costco, versus one year from Sharp. Costco rocks when it comes to replacements, upgrades and prices. Everyone knows how they handle their boxes versus an online retailer. Been there, done that and NEVER again!!! You probably read all the posts.
Good luck.
I would stick with the 8470U for sure.

I would turn the 3D "Auto" feature off in the menu.

My LC-70LE847U just came in and I am really pleased with it so far. In setting it up it became obvious that I will need to wall mount it but that leads to a few questions:

I found this mount which has good reviews: http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?c_id=108&cp_id=10828&cs_id=1082801&p_id=6663&seq=1&format=2

Has anyone used it or have any experience with it?

Also, I have an APC J15BLK which sits in the bottom of my entertainment center, once I install the tv to the wall can I lengthen the power cord on it so that it will reach? Are there products out there for this purpose?

Any help or advice on mounting solutions are appreciated.

Yeah, I had to turn this off. The 3D picture went all wonky when I tried this.

My set just randomly restarted today. I think I read that someone else had this problem.

Well I've had my 8470U (Costco) for about a month now and I'm really loving it. I had a tough time getting it calibrated as I was not willing to pay $400 for professional calibration, though I have no doubt it's worth the money if you don't have infinite time and patience. After using the calibration disk I downloaded from here and many many many hours of tweaking with TV shows and DVDs I think I have it pretty much perfect (at least to my taste). All the corner 'flashlighting' is gone, even when there is a black screen with credits. I'm absolutely LOVING the 3-D!! I did not think I would be that into it but watching the Olympics in 3D, track and field, women's diving, WOW! Oh, and they had this episode on rhythmic gymnastics! Dang! Love the glasses too. Very comfortable and they fit perfectly over my eyeglasses which the ones at movie theaters never do. I'm so pleased with this TV. Almost wish I'd gotten the 80" but this is so great there is no way I'd exchange it.

Spyder207, I have that exact mount from Monoprice for my 732u, shortly to be replaced by a 847u. The mount is solid and works perfect. I have purchased 6 mounts from monoprice and they all have worked flawlessley. The only thing that I did was purchase my own lag bolts from home depot, because of how i have hung some of my TVs, (outside on brick, on a built in cabinet). I felt the lag bolts I purchased were better quality and y I use the monoprice ones that don't involve holding up $000s in TVs.

This is based on my experience with the LC-70LE845U model, but it may be valid.
I finally gave up on Standard Mode in favor of User mode because I can get a uniform white.
It required me to turn the backlight up from 50% with Standard to 75% with User.
Good luck!

Hey JohnFull, I think you may be on to something here that's directly in line with my preferences.
Would you mind providing the settings you've used for User and/or Standard as well as how you've modified the Red, Magenta and Yellow?
Also, I'm not familiar with what 'Clipping' is, can you expand on this?

Thanks,

Is this TV at 70" really that bad because it is edge-lit? I can't buy the 735U anymore. The 844U is a bit big and expensive, and the 945U seems like a pipe dream. How does PQ compare to the 735U especially in terms of shadow details? Please help....
post #1211 of 2660
First, you should download the calibration disc from this forum and use it in your DVD/BD player to calibrate the white levels.
In the Standard picture, I started with the warmest picture setting and cranked down the Blue in the 10-point temperature adjustments.
You will notice that the top value is set at maximum for all three of the RGB channels in the Standard setting.
Open the calibration disc with the stepped white scale displayed -- it's a little easier to use without the aid of colorimeters.
Set the white temperature of the second from the top setting to maximum green output and adjust red and blue to make a slightly blue/green white.
This color tends to mask the differences from one source to the next by attenuating the orange color of flesh tones a bit. Other colors are not affected much.
After getting a slightly blue/green cool white uniformly across the 10-point scale, look at the color clipping section of the disc.
You'll see that Blue has full range, but Red clips at about 2/3 of the maximum. This is due to the deficiencies in the LED light source and can't be helped.
The clipping in the Red and Magenta channels will look like smeared color with blue highlights. The CMS (color management system) controls can selectively
tone down the red and magenta to an acceptable level so they don't glow, smear, and turn blue in the strongest highlights. I turned Blue down as well because
there is an overabundance of blue light coming from the LEDs. The white clipping track on the disc can help you set the contrast level. This should be done
before using the OPC setting. In standard mode, I used the OPC very sparingly between minimum and maximum values.
After all is done, you will still have blue/white highlights in the Standard setting. There is no way to tune all the blue out of the highlights and the color of the rest
of the scale will be slightly warmer than the highlights. This is the price you pay for the Standard setting's maximum brightness algorithm.
The User setting is another story and I prefer it. It requires 75% backlight compared to Standard at only 50% for approximately the same perceived brightness.
This makes the darkest scenes wash out slightly with the increased demand on the LCDs to screen out a brighter backlight. That's the price you pay for white accuracy.
I have the settings on my 'Taming the Wild Blue Yonder' posting -- search my name to find these. Good luck and let me know how it goes!

Do you have any issues with halos around images (ghosting, crosstalk) when watching 3D content? Thanks.

.None of the colors clip on my set.

.845U is superior to 735U.

Does the mount also hold the Tv strait along with tilt option?
post #1217 of 2660
Just curious, in the past other tv's whether it be samsung/lg sometimes you could get into a service menu and change the set if it was all based on same panels etc etc... does anyone know if it's possible to get the features of the 847ou into the 845U? I assume since they all seem to use the same firmwares they must have similarities that could possibly make it work?

Check my sig for a few settings suggestions.

Each set is unique and each user is unique. My settings are perfect for me and my environment, but they should only be considered a starting point for anybody else.

I know this thread is huge, but there are at least 6 or 7 setup variations in here...somewhere...
post #1220 of 2660
OuI've been in this hobby since about 1990...about the time stereo VCRs became affordable... In that time I've had a lot of displays and NONE of them were flawless. I can't afford flawless. Most people can't. You find a set in your budget with defects you can best ignore and enjoy it until the upgrade cycle comes full circle again...and do it all over...

Hey,

Yeah I tried yours the movie setting was just way off the charts horrible lmao, so I am guessing that's part the of the difference in the 845 to 847, however you daytime settings where pretty close, I did tweak a few settings I need to tinker some more but def better then the factory setting... Your daytime settings gave me a solid base to work from smile.gif

Unless I am just blind and can't find it, is there not a thread for 845u? The websites list the 845u has quad pixel plus not the 2 of course but don't see an option to enable or disable, is this something the tv has but you have no control over, whereas the quad pixel 2 lets you turn it on/off?

Oh, sorry, I missed that you're looking for 845 setttings. I can only help with 847/8470.

Ha yeah, that's why the quote was for kissfn lol... but either way I figure'd try yours out to see how it would compare and like I said it def helped for standard mode...

Didn't calibrate and I think the Standard AV Mode with OPC off looks perfect to me. Great 3D also!
post #1226 of 2660
I love my 845, but the red definitely clips!
post #1227 of 2660
So a quick question anyone here who had the 845U and decided to get an 847OU was there a noticeable difference in doing so? With exception of 3d glasses included, but does the quad pixel plus 2 and 3d enhancer really make much difference along with 100000:1 ratio as well. I have 7 days to do a reselect which the store has the ou in stock as well... so trying to decide if it's worth it....???

Thanks

Note that the XXC8470U model is a costco model. you have added benefits from buying from costco like extra year of warranty. The quad pixel plus, I can't comment on.

Best,
jeff

Yeah this place here in Canada, is Teppermans they're are the only ones that I can see who offer the ou... costco.ca doesn't have anything higher end in sharp line.... however Teppermans is still 1 year warranty, I have extended anyway already so not worried about that side of it, just curious if the 400$ more is worth the cost for the extra features and glasses of course, glasses are 129$ locally with taxes almost 300$ alone... so I figure 100$ more and get the added features of the OU model can't go wrong...

I will as soon as I have a chance to sit down and copy them. I've been working my butt off this past week and have had time only to sleep when I get home. FWIW, before I calibrated this set on my own I tried the settings that a few other people have posted in this thread and they did not looks so great on my TV. I think, as others have said, that it's a very individual thing for each set. But either way I'm certainly happy to post what I have set.
