Official Sharp AQUOS LC-60LE847U & LC-70LE847U Owners Thread - Page 66

Hi,
I have strange problem on 60LE. Screen displays more bright on one side and less bright on other side. The brighness is exactly split in the middle. So, sitting infront of TV, left half of the screen is more bright (abnormally more) and right side is displays correct brightness setting. The TV is 4 month old. Anyone seen this problem before ?

I had that issue with one of the Sharps I had, mine was brighter on the right side, also had a line right down the middle of the screen. I think the model was the 745U.

Sharp did send a tech, he tried replacing the main board, issue was still present, so he deemed it a bad panel. Sharp sent me the 847U.

Because you are looking for answers from people that own the TV.. Some people don't care to look outside of this thread .

Hey guys,

I have the Sharp AQUOS LC-60C8470U from Costco.

How's my light bleed? It's pretty noticeable along the bottom, but is it that bad?

What are your contrast and brightness settings? Is the set in dynamic mode? I've seen much worse.
post #1958 of 2660
Contrast at +34
Brightness at +4

No dynamic or OPC.
post #1959 of 2660
can you see it while content is on the screen? it looks kinda bad, but if it's not present while watching tv then.......

What is the setting for your backlight?
post #1961 of 2660
Backlight is at I believe 12 (not home). Ive put it at 0 and 16 with no discernable difference.
post #1962 of 2660
Scratch that, backlight @ 0 and brightness at 0.

If the camera is not exaggerating that and thats how it appears through your own eyes, being that bright and that "white", then I would without a doubt get sharp on the phone as that is not right at all


but if your just using a slow shutter speed on your camera to exggerate it and make it more visible even thogh it might be slight to you.. its probably somewhat normal

Just picked up one of these from hhgregg--

we just purchased a new home --we had a plasma that this tv has replaced. the reflections from a sliding door on the plasma were a bit irritating, so I opted to buy another tv that would have less reflection. I'm still within a day of my purchase so returning this isnt out of the question. It has a nice picture, and seems to be fairly bright.

So my question is this--having never really had a large LCD tv before--is the off-angle viewing (off axis) supposed to be so washed out/de-saturated? If i move more than 50 degrees off center, I get a pretty de- saturated picture (very noticeable very washed out). It gets worse as you move further off axis, is this to be expected? What degree of off axis viewing should I expect to have he same performance as 0 degree?

This is normal. Some LCD TV's are better about off axis viewing angles than others, though being such a big panel, it seems its much worse on the SHARP then some other LCD's ive had.

So you'd say the sharp is worse than others --or just the big panel is what is making it suffer? or, perhaps its an edge lit vs. back lit issue--perhaps the 80" would be less noticeable (they're back lit right?)

From MY OWN personal experiance this sharp has worse off axis viewing than other LCD tv's Ive had.

I do belive back lit tv's are better about this issue than edge lit but don't quote me on that. Yes the 80" is back lit.

Silly question: Is there any reason for me to keep the box the TV came in? (e.g. for warranty purposes).

I don't think I'll ever be shipping it anywhere, and the box is taking up lots of room in my basement.

for returning /exchanging yes--if you plan on keeping it, no.

Here's my off-angle viewing. I don't see this issue with the floor models i went and looked at during lunch. talked to the manager and he said just bring it back and swap it:

from 0 to 30 degree (basically on the end of the couch) to 60 degree viewing




post #1971 of 2660
New to the LED/LCD's. I've had a Mit 73" 835 for four years and have had zero issues with it.

I just purchased a new LC-70LE847U from H.H. Gregg here in the great St. Louis area. I've got it mounted and I purchased a new Onkyo LS3100 2.1 + sub speaker setup and it's the best sounding I've heard in this size and price range. It's also Bluetooth for those that like to have music going without TV.

Okay, my issue is getting the WIFI to setup on the 847U.

I've gone through all the setup menus and when I'm all done it lists my WIFI network for the house, but never lets me enter my password to connect.

I have a Netgear newer dual band N that kicks butt big time over my Sisco system I had. I tried the WPS setup and nothing.

So where am i going wrong on my setup? I'm not usually this challenged in these matters, but this is not working the way it should. I really don't want to hardwire with a CAT5 cable if I can help it.

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Dan

That is normal for this class of display. The Elite series of panels can be viewed from a wider off axis angle than a traditional led/lcd panel due to the nature of its backlight. Sharp says 176 degrees, but that is optimistic...

I don't think swapping out your set will improve your off angle viewing. Is it possible the set you were looking at in the store were in dynamic mode? Based on your pictures, it looks like your panel is operating as it should. I'll post some pix of my set from the side when I get home. Is yours a 60 or 70 inch?

70" - the pictures are from an iphone, they make it look better than it is. If I'm 15 degrees off-axis, the picture starts washing out. That cannot be the status-quo.

No, the tv I looked at in the store, I switched to movie, game, user etc--all did not suffer as greatly as mine did --it wasn't really even noticeable. I'm going to swap it, if it doesn't improve--I'll try the 80"... if that doesn't improve, I'll have to go down to the 65" samsung or return it altogether and get the elite. Rather not pay 7k for a tv though.

post #1975 of 2660
Here's another example, keep in mind, the iphone is adding saturation and making it appear darker/brighter and more saturated than it actually is...

Got my replacement 70le847u same uniformity issue as before except now its worse as it takes up a good portion of the center of the screen. Another call in with sharp, they had me send in pictures while on the phone. They are being reviewed as I type and I should have an answer tonight or tommorow
post #1977 of 2660
I returned the tv--debating the 70 elite... seems to have much better off-axis / color/depth. More money than i wanted to spend though...
post #1978 of 2660
Here some pictures of the issue I was talking about, aside from this "shadowing" as sharp called it, the 3D on this TV also exhibits bad ghosting even on the 3D Test pattern.

This is the First TV:


This is the Replacement:


This is the first TV:


This is the replacement:


Bad DSE:


Seems to be some serious uniformity issues with the panel, whether is the backlight or the panel itself I don't know. Regardless it is extremely aggrivating, its even more annoying on this new set as its much more apparent in movies when panning that the outer edges of the TV are brighter than the center, it also throws off the color a bit as well.

If I could do it all over again I would prefer the first TV, but bet your ass sharp will be replacing this TV as many times as it takes or giving me something else at this point to give me a proper unit.

Jayhawk - what is your seating arrangement and how far away from the screen do you sit? I have a friend who has the 70 inch Elite - no off axis issues. You get what you pay for. I liked the Elite and the Panasonic VT50, but thought both of those screens were too reflective, so I settled on the 70 inch 847U. Plasma sets have no issues with off axis viewing since each pixel has its own light source. I have a fairly small (12ft W X 15ft L) room with a couch and loveseat. Color shift as you move around the room is common with pretty much any LCD television with few exceptions. See below.

90 degrees


120 degrees
+

140 degrees


150 degrees


170 degrees on the other side of the room at the end of the couch - no one sits this close...


back to 90 degrees - seated 10 feet away
post #1980 of 2660
Hm, ya- that looks about like mine did. If i had more restriction L to R that would probably work--but the room opens up to both sides and back further.

I'm debating the vt50 65" too... 4k price difference between it in the elite--if money isnt an option, not sure which really looked better in the end...
