I am waiting for the delivery of a Pioneer Elite SC-65 so I can convert to HDMI.

Will this fix the lip synch problem?

Thanks for any help.

Chances are you will need a new AV receiver with lip sync adjustment.

I have the sharp 70" from Costco. Everything good except the lip sync issue. I am hooked up through a Onkyo NR515 receiver. Lip SYnc function on receiver is active.

Any tips on how to fix?

Does your AVR allow you to manually adjust the audio sync per input? This would be the easiest method if the lip sync timing is a constant value (it always appears out of sync by the same amount per source).

I have an Onkyo TX-NR414 and in the 515 there should be a manual adjustment for iip sync in the settings. Look in the manual. then you can adjust by sight or use a calibration disc.

If the tech did not confirm that the issue was fixed to your satisfaction, then you should have them come back out to rectify the issue.
Thanks for the input. I talked to Sharp again today. They said they have reviewed the picture (same one I posted) and that it is "within spec". End of story. Case closed. The guy told me they compared the picture to many other customer pictures and I don't have a problem with ghosting (or at least no more than anyone else). I guess it is luck of the draw with these sets. Makes for an expensive 2D TV.

I have slight ghosting with objects that appear extremely close, but not always and it is still a cool experience. A lot of movies have snowflakes falling close up.
I think engineers have figured out that this is a good effect and it gets repeated often. They seem to be falling in the middle of the darkened room, but they are
a bit translucent, like ghostly snow. The 3D effect is limited and engineers are supposed to respect the parameters when authoring the discs. Some do a better
job than others. Maybe you can accept the limitations of the technology and enjoy it anyway?...

havent had any problem with ghosting in 3d..in fact it looks damm good
post #2078 of 2660
The best 3D material looks near perfect. The worst shows some artifacts. I just watched Sony Picture's 'Monster House' from 2006 and it was excellent.
The technology is very good, but the way it's applied varies from one work to another. Very few have had artifacts so bad as to detract from the enjoyment...

None of the calibration settings posted here or on Johnno's thread work well with my 845, but I am having some luck by starting from scratch using the calibration disc from this site.
So two questions: Has anyone had any luck using one of the Spyder units to set up these Sharps?
And, in the CMS, what does the value setting do and how should it be adjusted?
Thanks.

Value is intensity, I think. If the other one is brightness, it's intensity. I'm not at home at the present to verify.
On the calibration disc, the stepped scale of the primary colors will help you see the interplay between intensity and brightness to reduce clipping.
One then the other, then back off the first and etc., till you get the desired degree of linearity with the least deviation from the 0 values.
That was my strategy.
Did you try my 3D? No good for you?...
post #2082 of 2660
Johnfull, the parameters are hue and saturation, which I am familiar with, and value, which I am not.
For now, I am getting good results with both value and hue set midrange,
and the color steps set to equal on the AVDHD disc using the saturation parameter.
Also, color temp set to medium low.

OK, then 'Value' means 'Brightness' of the color in question -- turning it up makes all objects of that color brighter, but not more intense.
If you backed off the Saturation and turned up the Brightness on Red, for example, red objects would be bright pink.
Hue should be left alone. That will assure the proper decoding of the colors from the source. Use Saturation and Value to get rid of clipping.
On my set, the blue did not clip, but one user of my calibrations said that he reduced blue to match the upper intensities of the green and red.
If you run out of blue adjustment in the medium low setting, you may have to go to the Low instead to have the range of adjustment that you need.
Good luck!

R=0, Y=+3, G=-9, C=-24, B=-5, M=0
That's movie mode, BTW, also Color +1, Tint +2, using blue filter.
I'll play with the value settings a bit, but it looks like this set is going to
need either replacement or repair as grey gets progressively pinker from
the right to left on the screen.
This was way more pronounced with your settings, harder to spot with mine.

I just purchased an LC-60LE847U from Sears and foolishly didn't ask if it included 3D glasses. According to cnet the Sharp AN-3DG20-B glasses are my only option. Is this so or are there other (cheaper and/or better) options available to me with this TV?

The above might be at end of life status. Usually, glasses are not bundled with sets sold at Sears.

Replacement for the G20 - They are slightly smaller and cheaper than the 20 series. Not an issue if you don't wear glasses.

Just picked up an LC70C8470u from Costco with a total of 5 years warranty for $2,598 out the door smile.gif The size is impressive, motion seems decent enough for LED, Blu ray picture is outstanding, Video game look great, Dish HD content looks ok. The only problem I have noticed is the way color seems to disappear with slight off angle viewing. Anybody else notice how it goes pastel awefully quick with not even near extreme off angles??? Other than that, I am very happy, even coming from the world of Samsung flagship plasmas.

The screen should be a uniform shade of gray! I don't know of any consumer fix for that -- sounds like the white LEDs are not the same color...

I bought both the G20 and G30 for my Sharp LC-80LE844U. Since the Sharp 847 were listed in my owner's manual, I would assume that they share the 3D glasses. I am looking for cheap clones of the Sharp glasses for occasional guests, i.e. very seldom used. What do you guys recommend based on your experience. I prefer the 20G since they are bigger and more comfortable for those wearing glasses. Apparently the clones glasses made for Sharp Aquos 3D were compatible with some Sharp but not with the 844 or 847 series, while the Sharp glasses are compatible with all Sharp 3D Tvs.

I have 20s & 30s on my LC-60LE745. The 20s have a larger lens.

I'd stick with the G20B series if you can find them at a reasonable price. The newer Sharp AN3DG30 3d glasses are smaller, but at $40 a pair are a bargain.

if you get too far off angle, it gets bad in a hurry. But to be faif almost all of these t's are that way

FYI for new owners of Sharp TVs. Sharp.com offers extended warranties at a very reasonable price if you sign up within 30 days of purchase.

I've only had my 8470u for a day, but with 640u and 8470u side-by-side I like PQ on 640 better. I've used this settings on 8470. Even with some modification, contrast and colors are better on 640u. I am returning 640u because of other issues. But now I am not sure if I want to keep 8470u.

Edit: also, BD picture on 640u looks sharper. Test patterns looks almost same, but movies are sharper on 640u.
post #2096 of 2660
Hello!! Been following this thread for a few weeks now and just pulled the trigger on the LC-70C8470U ... 2,700 with 5 year warranty smile.gif
Only had about an hour to mess with but I like what Im seeing so far, a few more adjustments and we should be good. Cant wait for tonight biggrin.gif ..

FYI, the 847 is INACTIVE in all Costco stores.. means they selll off what they have and thats it mad.gif ... 2013 models here we come. cool.gif

I know this is the Sharp thread, but hopefully I can get an honest opinion.....

I purchased the Samsung UN65ES8000 26 days ago. I am not 100% Satisfied with it. The picture just isn't what I want it to be for the cost of ownership. I was expecting a more vivid picture. Blu Rays are great, but not GREAT, and cable looks like crap. I am considering returning it and getting the Sharp LC70LE847U.

Thoughts?

The Samsung is known for having vertical banding issues among other black problems. I have heard the Sharp has clouding and color problems? I read a lot of this thread and notice that the issues seem less frequent with the Sharp than the Sammy.

Well I have the 732u and I love it! Beautiful pq and no clouding or dse. I have no complaints! You should be extremely happy if you get 1.

Im contacting Sharp today,,, straight out of the box!!


post #2100 of 2660
So how exactly do you disable (or reduce) motion interpolation in this set?. Because 120 High and 120 Low look the same, as does Off.
