Official Sharp AQUOS LC-60LE847U & LC-70LE847U Owners Thread - Page 46

post #1351 of 2660
I was still on the fence about this tv unless I came across a good deal so since my local Costco didn't have the 60" and said they don't expect to get any in I thought I would check out Sam's Club. They didn't have any 60" in the showroom either. They do have the 70" as does Costco. Must be my area? So I ended up buying the LG LS5750. Costco had a great price on them. I still like the Sharp though. I have a 5 year old Sharp Aquos and love it.

I never knew they had auctions. Looks like you can save some money but the return policy is slightly different.

All,

I have had my 70" Sharp now for a couple of months, and I have a problem and I am not sure if this is "normal". The PQ when viewing most programming via my HD Cable DVR is awesome, but there are certain situations when the PQ suffers. For example, when watching football yesterday on both CBS and FOX, when the network flashes from the action to their graphics, I see a lot of square pixels on the screen, and everything seems blurry for that 1 second. I also see this alot when watching programs that have a lot of flashing lights (i.e. when watching America's Got Talent, since there are a lot of flashing lights on the stage).

I am trying to figure out if I need to get my TV diagnosed by an expert, or if this is "normal". If you of any settings that can help with this, please let me know.

Thanks

i see this all the time at a friend's house who's cable provider is Rogers. i just assumed it was compression from the cable provider. flashing lights and fast panning usually results in their codecs having a seizure because there's not enough bandwidth to cover the extra info. never assumed it was his TV.
post #1356 of 2660
Yes it's normal. Many stations will reduce the bitrate on commercials. you'll then see an image that looks blocky, in a uniform way, maybe the blocks are 0.5in square or so...

Anyone have a line on where a guy can pick up some extra 3D glass's for the 847? The B & M stores want $100 each. I got 2 pr with the Tv but need at least 2 more and I'm not sure which ones will work?

Of course... Amazon has them for about $46 + free shipping if you're Prime.

It's free "Super Saver" shipping for all.

But if you are in Pennsylvania, you have to pay tax on Amazon purchases...

See if your local Sears or Best Buy will price match Amazon for part number AN-3DG20-B.

Hi all. I have a question regarding the use of the usb function of this tv. I'm using this T.V. to cycle through various images for an in-store display via flash drive. This works ok except that the screen needs to be brighter. When I go to adjust the brightness, the menu tweaks are grayed out. I can adjust the backlight and the gamma but nothing else. I've tried all of the modes (user, standard, movie, etc.). If I go to a different input like T.V. or HDMI 1, the t.v. will let me fine-tune the picture. So, is this just something that the t.v. won't let me do or is there some other way to unlock the menu in usb flash drive mode? Or if someone can recommend a t.v. better suited for my needs? Basically, the t.v. needs to be bright under harsh lights (department store, mall, etc.) Thanks.

Does anyone know what stock is currently like on these? I.e. is there any shortage for any reason? I have the 70" on order from a local retailer that I think I got a really good deal on. It was supposed to be delivered tomorrow but they called yesterday and said their shipment from Sharp didn't come in. I guess I'm just trying to guess if is going to be a week wait or a month. Any reason they shouldn't get stock in again soon that I might not be aware of?

Hi guys. we just recently bought a sharp 70in 240hz led 3d tv. Model number LC-70le847u and the picture seems real blurry and laggy. We have not had it calibrated or hooked any cables to it. So i was wondering if we have a bad connection or something? Would a hdmi cable hooked up through a hd cable box help at all. Or if i calibrated it or got someone to do it. Does anyone else have this problem? Im really dissapointed in the tv after seeing the great reviews. Thanks!

HDMI helps a lot!
There is a calibration DVD available on this website.
I had very good luck calibrating my set using the white scale and then the CMS for individual colors.
post #1364 of 2660
Well my lc60c8470u arrived yesterday in excellent condition. Great picture out of the box, but I have made a few calibration suggestions from this thread. I do have an issue with my dlna connection. I can see my home network and can access each computer. The only problem is a cannot see any of my video files (mkv or avi). It does recognize my wmv files and will play them. I have a 3d blu ray 3d player and using its dlna ability i can play all my files, just not directly through sharp's dlna connection. So i was wondering can anyone here play mkv's directly from Sharp's dlna connection?

Confused about the Sharp 3d glasses charging. If the green light blinks does that mean it is charging or should the light be solid green?

Blinking is charging and when it goes out it's charged.

Does anyone know why when the camera moves around it looks like the picture waves? Is there a way to fix it?
post #1368 of 2660
One last question. How come when i put it on dynamic pic mode it changes back to dynamic fixed a few minutes later?

Actually this makes me think of OPC too... it seems to disable itself at some point. I would like to leave OPC on so my screen adapts to the ambient room light, but just when I hit the menu a few days after turning it on, it's set to OFF! mad.gif

What gives?

My 61" Samsung HLR DLP finally died after 7 years of service. I had the HLR professionally calibrated and the tech was able to go into the service menu to make the changes. The changes were permanent and remained when the unit was unplugged.

I just got my 70LE847U and it looks pretty darn good. I was wondering if I had it professionally calibrated would the changes be permanent, or do they reset every time the unit is unplugged?

Thank you

My Sharp AQUOS LC-60LE845U picture went black for 5 seconds. This had happened before for longer periods and the sound went also.
At that time i had a replacement for the problem TV.
Has this happened to anybody else? I did a search and there wasn't anybody else who had this happen to them.
All responses will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks:

My set goes black sometimes for several seconds. I attribute that to some issue between the HD box (comcast DVR), the AVR (which does the HDMI switching) and the set. somebody drops the signal. for me I think it's only happened when watching baseball (go A's).
Best,
jeff
post #1373 of 2660
I also am having problems with the TV resetting itself. It started happening after the last update. My setup is: DIRECTV HR34-700 <-> Denon AVR2311CI <-> Sharp LC-60LE847U
post #1374 of 2660
Leaving this quick review here so potential buyers can reference it, not to try to sway the 847 owners. I recently set up a Samsung UN65ES8000 to replace my 70LE8470U. If you're serious about picture quality, the Samsung is a no-brainer. Brightness, contrast, black levels, sharpness, and color accuracy are all hands-down better on the Samsung. If I didn't know otherwise, I would think that the two sets aren't even the same display technology. Just $0.02 from a customer who has demo'd and calibrated both TVs.

I think I did read somewhere that on older Sharp sets, this problem was more prevalent. That's why I got the replacement. I thought that the problem happening on a new set was more than I wanted to think about. I like your theory, though, and I won't worry about the one time drop out. For now, anyway. Thanks.

I called Sharp and the representative said there was no record of this kind of complaint (!!!).
I was told to try unplugging the set for 5 minutes to allow it to reboot. That seems to have worked for me.
I was assured that if the problem ever comes back -- even after the warranty expires -- it will be covered for this defect because it has now been recorded.
"Lifetime Guarantee" is only good for the lifetime of the company. I've been watching the financial travails of Sharp nervously...

Anyone pick one of these up through Sam's auction site? Just wondering what the purchase experience was like.

I am having a heck of a time getting rid of the SOE on my 70" 847U in movie mode. I can see that it is possible for this TV to look "normal" by using game mode, but the other aspects of that picture mode are not acceptable in my opinion. I've turned off motion enhancement and film mode and it seems to not make much difference, I still see SOE when the camera moves in a scene.

Few days ago I bought a LC-70c847OU from Costco. A brand new batch arrived the same time I visited the store and so I got one right off the pallet. Manufacture date: August 2012. Took it home in an upright position etc. This TV looks fantantic once I finished the calibration. I just hope it continues this way as I am getting familiar with it. This bad boy replaced a Sony 60".

regards,

chapper:)

Yes I did, placed a bid of 1400 and won it at 1350 + 75 shipping. Took 8 days to arrive via SEKO Logistics. Talked to the driver and he said they do most of the tv deliveries for sams and costco. They are aware that these sets must be shipped standing up. Set arrived in perfect condition. After a little calibration the set looks great. You can add on a service agreement after the order is placed. Service agreement is based on the final price of the set. I am very pleased with the transaction and the set.
