I told you, you should not have played Catwoman.

Seriously though, you won't get clouding with the plasma. You'll get a more saturated color and a smoother picture. You will use a LOT more electricity and it will act like a heater. Burn in is not as MUCH of a problem as it was, but it is something you need to keep in mind and watch out for (don't leave it on the channel guide all day and don't use it as a monitor and leave the windows screen up all day long).

You are going to have some clouding no matter what TV you get if it's side lit LED/LCD. Mine is minor but it's there. I'm the only one in the family that notices it or cares but it's not bad enough for me to do anything about. Now that yellow spot you showed in Butch Cassidy was a serious issue. I don't know that I'd call that clouding you showed in the picture under it a serious issue. My personal opinion is, if that much clouding is bothering you maybe you should go with plasma or a back lit screen. See what others say.

You'll LOVE the plasma picture though.

I own a 70'' 8470 and am generally happy with the set. I do have some clouding but its not too distracting except during some content under critical viewing conditions. So my story is a lot like yours. Furthermore if I needed a set in the 65 size I'd have a Panasonic plasma. I needed a 70 so I'm sticking withe sharp until it dies.
If you can use a 65 then get the panny and I think you'll be happier overall.
Best,
Jeff

you can return it and order from costco.com, $1399+tax, free shipping. 90 days return , 2 year warranty, much better than BJ.

KTM300EXC' experience with Sharp is very important for us, it is very bad CSR. I am thinking if I should return the TV to costco to avoid future hassle. actually I like SONY more, but it is so expensive.

Hi,

I've tried a google search and forum search and read the manual but I can't figure out how to turn on game mode (vyper drive) for my Sharp Aquos LC-70LE640U (or LC-70C6400U - not sure which of the 2 models I have - got it from Costco). Can anyone point me to instructions on how to turn on this feature to eliminate the 1/2 second lag when playing games using XBOX?

Thanks!

it's there, look on page 21 of the manual, under av mode. press av mode on the remote repeated and you'll cycle through all possibilities, one being game mode.

Well, heres something that makes you go Hum....My 1st 847OU had "Clouding", after a week of talking with Sharp i decided I would just take it back to BJ's for a even trade for another 60" 847OU....In my talks with Sharp they did not have a 60" to ship me and couldn't tell me when they;d have one in. The offered the option of "Up shipping/Up shifting" to the 70" that they had in stock which would take a few days for conformation on what they could offer the 70" to me for. Being that I am impatient, and had my Brother over on Sun I enlisted him to help me bring back the 60" and even trade it for another one, even got $106.00 back on the deal as the TV had gone down in price, I was happy. Today I spent all day looking for a stand/entertainment stand eventually finding one at BJ's that I liked. It took all day to assemble and hang the new replacement TV on.

Right at the point where I was just sliding all the other A/V components (Center Speaker, Onkyo 809 AVR, Fat PS3, DirecTv Cable box, and a Router) into the stand doing a test/fit session in preparation for wiring it all up tomorrow, my phone rang.....It was Sharp, I was all ready to get mad at them as I was cranky from assembling a monstrosity of a A/V Stand, yet they had some interesting yet confusing and ultimately unfortunate news.

They had made a decision on what to offer me for the upgrade to a 70", they stated they would ship it to me in exchange from my broken set, for $1050? They'd ship a brand new 70", and take away my original 60". When I had told him I already exchanged the set as I got tired of waiting and dealing with them and thus have a different one, albeit with minor clouding as well, he stated that the offer was for the original TV/Serial Number that the case was set up on as that TV was determined by them to be defective and thus the deal offered to me as they didn't have a 60" to ship as a replacement. He stated I would need to "Unexchange" the TV to get the original one back, then they would send the 70" and take the original 60"? Heres my question I should have asked before I said I needed a day to think about it.

1.) If I got the original TV back from BJ's, would Sharp give me a check/cash for the $1799 that I paid for it, then I would be required to give them $1050 for the replacement 70" If so thats like getting a 70" for less than I paid for the 60"

2.) If Sharp wants the original defective 60" plus $1050 that's like $2850 for me to get a 70" replacement, I think Amazon lists the 70" Aquos for $2799, if this is the case Sharp didn't give me any F'in deal?

3.) Earlier in the day I had made the choice to just live with this TV and start saving for my next upgrade in 3-4 years, then spent all day buying, building, sweating and swearing getting everything hooked up (Still am not done), a ton of work....It would be a ton more work to un-mount, repackage, this tv and cart back to BJ's, get my old 60" bring it home, store it, waiting for the 70" to arrive. I wouldn't even think about the 70" deal, but if the deal they offered turned out to be that they are actually offering me the 70" for less than I paid for the 60" then that gives me huge pause, and the opportunity to kick myself in the arse for not waiting to hear back from Sharp before returning it on my own and potentially creating a ton more work to get they deal they are offering, if I am interpreting the deal correctly.

Saga continues.....I am hard wiring everything tomorrow, if I can get that all done, I won't even call Sharp back, other than to transfer over the Extended Warranty I purchased through them 2 weeks ago, it would be too much work to go about seizing the 70" deal, if its the sweetheart deal I am thinking it is.....Yup, a teaching moment.

Is the 70" more prone to Clouding due to the increased size/weight? I assume it performs the same as the 60" version?

UGH

Ah, thanks. I found that however I saw a description of it that just said it would reduce sharpness to make watching sports easier. I didn't think it would also decrease image pre-processing to allow xbox/ps3 play without lag.

While I'm at it, I have another question. I've got the soap opera effect. Is there an easy way to get rid of it with this TV model? Thanks.
post #2228 of 2660



I just took these two pictures of my 847 and was wondering if the blockiness shown in the images normal? This usually only happens on a couple of shows NCIS being one of them. I have direct TV. Is there a way to decrease this effect?

Thanks
post #2229 of 2660
that's an artifact of the feed, e.g. direct tv.
post #2230 of 2660
Does it have that with a bluray source?

Thanks for the quick response, is there any way to reduce the effect or is it just a result of the feed from DirecTV?

No, I have never noticed it with a BluRay, HD-DVD or regular DVD.

So it's your dtv feed

DirecTV has a bad habit of using the least amount of compression they can get away with so that they will have more bandwith for all those shopping networks and overpriced sports packages and 2nd run pay per view movies.

Hopefully we will be getting fiber optics in our area this year and I can drop DirecTV.

That's DirecTV. A video processor might reduce those issues.

Would it help to run the video through my Onkyo 809?

If it has video processing it might. I run mine through a DVDO EDGE, and there is a marginal quality improvement with HD cable content, which was MPEG-2 blocking, which is even worse than the MPEG-4 blocking you're seeing.

1.) Sharp is offering to uplift you to a 70 inch television. There is a charge for that. You will be paying more for a 70 inch.

2.) That is correct. Your costs also include shipping, delivery, installation, and hauling away your old set. Your price would have been 2749 delivered, had you waited.

3.) Buy a 70 inch from a place that has a good return policy. Check through the Sharp and Vizio threads for reports on clouding.

Sharp LC-70LE847U Owners Please Help

I work for a company that has a Sharp LC-70LE847U for auction. Problem is it that it has water damage. There is water spots in the screen and condensation can be seen. I've discussed with a few techs, but most want to get a $80+ fee to look at it, and I don't have possession. To make matters worse, its a blind bid, so I have to bid to win without knowing other offers (stupid i know). My question is, on LED televisions is the glass separate from the screen like in plasma televisions or is it all screen? Should I expect the water to dissipate even though that may leave stains? What options do I really have, and how much should I pay or bid with a looming repair? My current television is a 50" 720 Panasonic, so this would be a great upgrade.

Oh, btw the auction ends today...so... frown.gif
post #2241 of 2660
Deuce I have no idea what the winning bid would have to be for this TV so I don't know if it would constitute a good deal. What I will say is I would stay far far away from that TV if it has had water damage. I believe there are 2 panels of glass in these TV's that sandwich a film layer of some sort, these TV's (IMHO and Experience) are prone to "Clouding" which some stat/believe are due to these panels of glass, separated from the film by mere millimeters, touching the film due to shipping and or manufacture handling, and build issues. Regardless of how Clouding occurs I would be hesitant to introduce another issue (Water Damage) to a TV that maybe prone to issues on it's own. And if you really think about it, Water and Electrical components never go together so well.

If you could get this damaged TV for a $100-200 and if a repair bill would be $4-500( I have no idea if these are realistic amounts) your looking at a potential total ownership cost of up to $700, whereas you can get this TV new from COSTCO for around $1400. The $700 dollar difference for a new TV of this model would give you a proper warranty, and a piece of mind that other components won't deteriorate and fail after your current repairs, corrosion may take some time.

In conclusion if I were you I'd put away the maximum amount of money you planned to Bid, then take some time to save up the rest of the money for a new TV. During that time you can spend Days, Weeks and Months on this site researching your potential future TV purchase, every new TV has it's pluses and minuses, you can and will spend countless hours in an attempt to make an informed buying decision.

Good Luck.
post #2242 of 2660
Thanks for the response, I will say in some sort of defense that the lowest I've seen this TV is for $2,000. Also the minimum bid is $500, so not looking too good. I think you're referring to the 60"
Edited by deuce2klub - 3/22/13 at 8:14am
post #2243 of 2660
Yes, sorry I was referring to the 60"....But the numbers apply still jive its too big of a risk....$500 low bid, 500+ to repair it, then who knows how much later on when other things go?

Wow, are you sure it was the 70-8470U? The lower end 70" is showing that online from Costco, but not the higher end one! They don't even show it online anymore.

Dang, wish I could get it at that price, I may just skip the 2013 model and grab that one!

You have to try them and see if you like them if not you have others.
post #2248 of 2660
I set them, and it looks nice. I was just wondering if there was a better way to set it up?
post #2249 of 2660
Every set is different. That's why they need to be calibrated (otherwise they would come calibrated and not need tweaking). If it looks good then great. Fiddle with it a little and see if you can get it to look better.
post #2250 of 2660
I have written down 3-4 complete Calibrations that I got from members on this site, each one is specific such as night, gaming, daytime and so on. I go back and forth trying each one as they look better/worse with different sources/conditions.

Pick 1 that gets you close, learn what each adjustment does/accomplishes, then tweak so it looks good to your eyes.
