Distilled water that has been slightly dampened on a microfiber cloth
you can get micro fiber cloth at a Auto parts store OR even Walmart, in the auto section .
Micro fiber cloth are used to polish auto finishes & are very inexpensive IF you get them at a Auto parts center ,
Other places will over charge in the Extreme for them ( Best Buy , even the TV section of Walmart will over charge if you buy one in the Audio & HT section of the store )
They also can be washed with your regular clothes & last a long time . biggrin.gif

Thanks! Looking through the thread, I saw you posted Suzook's movie settings. These look fantastic for movies! Are you using these for all your programming or do you have another set of settings?

I like them for movies and regular watching TV but the only issue I'm having is with sports. It's just too dark, I want the colors to be a bit more vibrant for games. None of the other default modes look good for sports. Any ideas?

I'd like to get your opinion guys, to know if my worries are legit or if I'm just being paranoid or too picky / anal...

Recently received my brand new LC708470U from the store and noticed almost instantly the bad uniformity of the screen, lots of clouding it seems... Even my wife, who doesn't know much of that stuff and don't really pay attention noticed it (first time was in a dark scene of The Dark Knight...

Decided to take some pictures, both in the dark and with some ambient light... What do you think? Should I return it or I'm just being too picky here and this amount of clouding is actually normal?

****** pics taken with phone sorry.

Do you notice any of that when stuff is on screen or is it only with a blank/dark screen?

That's a flawed screen , return OR start a problem ticket with Sharp
Take some better pix with a real camera & email them to Sharp , I've seen Sharp replace a display with a new one delerived ,set-up for less clouding than that
Clouding is a Know Issue with these edge lighted LED screens , That IS Clouding And Bad at that . . . . frown.gif

2 ways to go return to store & wait with the hassle of dealing with the retail store
OR Warranty return ,
If you bought on-line Call Sharp
post #1659 of 2660
It's mostly on all dark screens or complete black screens (like the ''no signal'' one).

I took more pics randomly from the first Lord Of The Rings: you can definitely see it clearly in the dark scenes. Again sorry for the pics but this is the best quality I can afford/do.

I dropped the blacklight to minus 5 and the brightness a bit too (colors are all wrong I know, not calibrated yet). it is especially visible on the left side of the screen, the right side doesn't seem as bad when I compare.


Still think the displayed is flawed and I should change it?

That is a very bad case of clouding No Doubt About It !
I myself would have returned that display if I had bought it

even with those pix it looks REALLY Bad

New Update: Sharp replacement of 70LE847U

So my TV replacement should arrive tomorow..ON SATURDAY! Good job local shipper! My TV is supposed to be unpacked, connected and checked to work and the defective unit put in a box and shipped back. I will let you know how the exchange goes. I will still need to transfer the extended warranty from sharp to the new tv and pray I do not have any clouding issues with new set. The one being replaced had absolutely zero clouding issues so I hope the new one is the same.
post #1662 of 2660
So Urobulus, I see it's not only with a dark screen. Yeah, it does not look good. However mine did not look great until I calibrated it (myself, not professional). After that it looked awesome. I suggest you download the calibration disc from the AVS forum (sorry, don't have time to find the URL since I'm at work, but search these forums) and see if that fixes things. Sometimes the TVs come with the settings so screwed up that it accentuates the normal clouding that you will see on any TV. If calibrating it does not work then yeah, I'd exchange/return it.
post #1663 of 2660
That backlight looks like its turned up extremely high in the pics you took. Thats most certainly going to exaggerate any clouding/uniformity issues. From what I've gathered almost all of them exhibit clouding to some extent, a few have said it gets less noticeable over time as the TV goes through its power cycles. I'm almost expecting mine to have clouding when I get it, I'm going to give it a few weeks and try the paint roller trick while I'm at it.. if I'm still not satisifed I will happily exchange it as many times as needed until I'm happy tongue.gif

Maybe it's because I've had plasmas, but -6 backlight on the 847 seems like more than plenty for a "normal" lit and dark room. When I demoed the TV at the local Audio/Video store there was a decent ammount of light and some very light clouding noticeable on the left bottom hand corner, I had him turn the backlight down till it went away (-6 backlight) then dim the lights for me and it wasn't noticeable in the Dark knight rises clip I brought with me to check out.
post #1664 of 2660
Like I mentioned the backlight is at -5, which is five notches below the STD (Standard). The first set of pics (the ones with the black screen only) was at +10.
post #1665 of 2660
I would give the paint roller a try, Normally im the type of person that says "Why should I have to do anything, it should work out of the box" but with a 70" TV, I'd rather spend 10 minutes seeing if I can ease a paintroller over the screen to see if I can redeuce it before trying to return it tongue.gif It's a lot of work to return a TV like that wink.gif
post #1666 of 2660
I'm about to try the paint roller trick, I have some clouding on the left hand side, only noticeable (to me) in dark scenes. I do have a question for anyone who can help out. I have followed CGGorman settings, and it looks VERY nice, but I have noticed my whites are Supenova bright!
It is appears when people have lights cast on them, on the white jerseys on athletes, and on white backgrounds, it gives me a sunburn. Is there a way to tone them down, and would it have anything to do with keeping my SOE settings in tact.
I have "Motion Enhancement 120hz High", "Film Mode Advanced +10", "QuadPixel Plus Advanced, and "View, dot by dot".

Thanks

If you are using the 10-point setting for color temperature, you need to go to the brightest segment and pull down the values.
I've seen that the calibration disc is useless for the brightest segment and it is factory-set to maximum drive on all three colors.
You could pull them back to the center value and work from there. That segment is only activated in extreme bright and not,
for instance, in white subtitles and network banners, etc. You are no doubt getting a lot of white clipping because of that one band.
If you're using only the 2-Point color temperature adjustment, you'll have to turn the Contrast down till the clipping is tolerable...
post #1668 of 2660
New update on my situation: the store I bought it from saw the pictures I brought them and instead of doing a service call to Sharp to check everything (and switch a board or whatever if need) they didn't want to bother and just told me that they will ship me a brand new unit.

They are currently back order though and need to wait for Sharp to send them a new batch (1-2 weeks) so theorically the set I will receive will not only be brand new but also fresh off the manufacturing floor (October-November build?) if I'm lucky smile.gif
post #1669 of 2660
I've had mine since mid September and it has behaved and looked flawlessly. I use it 90% of the time for TV viewing from my FIOS box and live for sports and it has not let me down. I paid $350 to have my $4000 2005 Samsung DLP professionally calibrated but I don't think I will spend the money on my Sharp 70" it looks great.
post #1670 of 2660
Does anyone know why the background on a show has like a blinking effect? Ill be watching a football game and the field will be blinking? It really brothers me. I still think the picture isnt very good. Do you guys have the hd boxes and HDMI hooked up?
post #1671 of 2660
Did I just read something about using a paint roller to make the picture quality better on these sets? Ummmm. Hmmmm. Thats pretty interesting. Always liked my early-gen 32" Sharp LCD and I was possibly considering a 70" Sharp to replace my 50" KURO but I have a feeling Im not going to be that impressed. That screen uniformity looks about as bad as you get from the screen shots above. I also worry about proper 1080/24 film source performance which CNet says doesnt go well on these. Geesh. eek.gif

with film mode turned on at any level, you will not be able to tone things down.

"Geesh s2milkey" While I'm a bit new to the real big screen sceen, I'm not real new to the board sceen. When I saw the "paint roller" mention I had't heard of it before so I did a search of the board and saw how long ago it was mentioned (long before the Sharp 847U set was introduced) and, quite frankle, a technique apparently used befor it was mentioned even in the post I saw from 2010. Now seeing that you have been posting since 2006 and that you have a Kuro which I understand has a very stong group of followers that still cling to even the older models, you would know all of that. And of course if you had actually read the post regarding the screen shots you commented on, you would have know they related to a cset already identified as defective and that was already being replaced immediately by the seller upon seeing the pictures. And if you had would have read the piant roller comments and rebuttals you would have noticed that they were from mostly newbies who had heard of the technique and were asking about it and other posters commented.


So after excising all of that, and assuming that you can read and realize that this board relates to owners of the Sharp AQUOS LC-60LE847U & LC-70LE847U, it almost appears that maybe, "Oh Noooooooo" (courtesy of SNL's MR. Bill), your post is simply just a foolish attempt by another owner of an aging Kuro trying to make a weak attempt to poke fun at an owner of a Sharp 847 series and, once again justify clinging to his Kuuuuroooo. As far as your comment purportedly from cNet, I went back to cNet and I did not find a test of a 60 or 70 inch 847 series Sharp or even a current 800 series of anything over a 60" size so where your comment comes from I don't know, but anyway what exactly was the motive for you comment?. And as far as your "I also worry about proper 1080/24 film source performance" comment, please don't worry Sooooooo much. Get a good nights sleep, the sun will still come up tomorrow and the world of "film source performance" will survive. Hallelujah!

After spending two days reading this thread, I go and see that niether costco, Sam's, or BJ's have 70" Sharps even listed on their websites anymore; only the 80" 633U.

post #1677 of 2660
I think it is just temporary. It happens periodically. Last time it was up, they said the 70" 847 was backordered until 12/12. Assuming more come in then, the TVs will be up again. Same thing happened to the Samsung 65ES6550. It was off for a while, then I saw it in a Costco this weekend and now its back up on the website.

Speaking of which, anyone previously compare the 65ES6550 to the 70LE847u? I'm wringing my hands over this and will need to make a decision by early January.

Check this thread for the Samsung:
http://www.avsforum.com/t/1401438/official-samsung-unxxes6500-owners-thread

By the time you are ready to make your decision, both of these sets will be reaching end of life status, and you might be able to get a good deal on either. I've been pretty happy with my 847U since June of this year. Had some issues, but they were resolved quickly by Sharp.
post #1679 of 2660
Yay My 70" Sharp LC70LE847U is waiting for me at Sears. I got it for $2600 on sale. I will pick it up this weekend and post my opinion after calibration
post #1680 of 2660

Granted, but like I said, after reading every post in this thread I'm now well aware of the advantages gained by getting one from the 3 warehouses. Nothing against BB per se, I'm a premier silver, but with the better warrenty, etc....
