No local dimming until some elites & the 80" 847's

Has anyone had an 847 and then a C8470U? Any real visible difference?

I mentioned this before, anyone have IR remote issues when watching 3D?

My AVR volume keeps going in whatever direction I pressed the button. Down is annoying, up is PAINFUL.

Hi all! I am a new owner of a LC-60LE847U. I have dish network hooked up to it via HDMI. I'm having an issue where the dish network channels randomly blanks out (including the audio). I've had a dish network technician come and check out if its their box, but the tech says it the tv's issue.

Also, I tried hooking up my old 52" Samsung lcd hdtv to it and that issue doesn't persist (also connected to HDMI)

Any ideas?

They should be able to set that up for you also. (unpack and mount on stand) Test it before the delivery guys split. Good luck with this one.

I think my first 847 did that. Turning the DTVHR34 off stopped it for 20-40 minutes.

Just got my 847 in and man it is GREAT! East Coast TVs got it to my house in 3 days and the thing looks great! The off axis viewing is a lot better than I've seen in the store and so far (fingers crossed) no clouding!

The only thing I'm worried about now is cross talk with 3D and I won't know that until I get my glasses next week.

Man I love this thing and the price was sooooo good!

Now to find a calibration disk...

Using remote control, Power -OK - Menu

This will bring up a screen, where you can change these options.

Thanks for the help. I tried all the above suggestions. FIOS even replaced my STB with no luck. Finally, I found out that Denon 3803ci was upconverting the STB signals to 1080p. I changed to send native resolution, which fixed the issue. The picture looks awesome now. BTW, none of the other sources were upconverted by Denon. Not sure why I had it upconvert. The surprising part is 46" sharp tv which I replaced with this 60" did not show any problems for the past 4 yrs.

As always, appreciate everyone's response.

I have always run everything through my AVR but am now running directly to the 847 with an optical out to the AVR. Everything looks amazing and I don't have to switch the AVR to get sound.

For those of you having ghosting issues while watching 3D on an LC-60LE847U, try these settings on Movie Mode:

Backlight: -2
Contrast: +38
Brightness: +2
Color: -6
Tint: +4
Sharpness: 0

Color Gamut Range: Standard
Color Temp: High
Quad Pixel Plus 2: Advanced [Honestly, you can leave this off since, outside of test patters, it makes little difference.]
Active Contrast: Off
Gamma Adjustment: +1
Film Mode: Off
Digital Noise Reduction: Off


The real important factor is the Color Temperature. The higher the better when it comes to this set's ghosting. Low is Ghost Central. I stumbled upon this solution while using the 3D test patterns included in Brave. There's a test to make sure that the right eye and the left eye are displaying properly. Close one eye and Buzz Lightyear disappears. Close the opposite eye and Woody disappears. Since Buzz is mostly white, he disappears easily. But Woody is brown, yellow, and orange mostly. So he's harder to disappear. The lower the Color Temperature, the more noticeable Woody becomes while viewing through the eye where he should remain unseen. Ghosting is greatly reduced.

That said, it doesn't completely eliminate ghosting on this set. But it becomes less of a nightmare.

Interesting! On the 845 model, I found the Gamma and the Active Contrast to be key -- keep Gamma at 0 and use the Active Contrast. Midtone grays are the bugaboo,
so crushing them into black is key. Some discs are authored much better than others in this regard, but the best are very contrasty and the colors seem cranked up as well.
Also, the Advanced Film Mode really helps the 3D image stability. The soap opera effect is not really noticeable, but turning the feature off causes jitters in some scenes.

I don't recall what, if any effect, active contrast had on ghosting. I'll have to check it using the Woody/Buzz test from Brave since the only thing I really noticed had any effect in making Woody almost completely disappear was setting the color temperature to high.

Unfortunately, I find that Advance Film Mode still introduces artifacts (even set to +1) like weird haloing around moving objects in front of complex backgrounds. That's why I chose to keep it off.

I ended up tweaking those settings a bit after I posted them. The changes were minute but I'll post them anyway when I get back home.

Thanks for that link.

I have had no picture quality issues on any of the 3 sets I have had they all just refused to stop shutting off for no reason of sporadically going black.

I have a LC-70C8470U coming between noon and 4pm. I'll post any differences I see between the 847/8470 after I have it set up.

I'm glad it's not only me. I run my 847 off a Yamaha Aventage 3010 AVR, and I had the video processing enabled to upconvert to 1080p in the hope it would improve DTV quality a bit. As it turns out, some combination of the DirecTV HR34 sending a 720p signal -> AVR (using video processing/upconverting to 1080p) -> TV would sometimes blank the screen, but I would still hear audio. The TV was definitely losing it's HDMI handshake. Truly annoying to have to power cycle components, and just have it happen again a few seconds later. I finally figured out that the video processing was causing the instability so I've since disabled it. No blank screen since!

Seems like a waste to own the top model Yamaha and not make use of one of it's prized features frown.gif

Still loving my Sharp 70 (even though it has some flash lighting in the bottom left). My dad liked it enough to go out and get himself a 60LE847 just last week cool.gif

I am running my HR34 directly into the 847 but only get 1080i. Do you get 1080p?

Unless you are doing PPV, nothing is broadcast in 1080p on any provider.

that explains it.

I don't do PPV. Netflix one disk/streaming for - 20.00 per month pays for it's self in that regard.


Thanks
post #2359 of 2660
Set came at 3pm. It seems much better than the non C8470U. I am going to let it run for a few days this time before I change anything.

The swivel stand fit, I kept it.
post #2360 of 2660
1080p works fine from me from my BD player as well as my WDTV.
post #2361 of 2660
I get 1080p form Blu Ray, PS3, HD DVD etc. the HR34 says it pushes it, I had never seen 1080p from it. Not like you can really see the difference (although at 70" it's possible).
post #2362 of 2660
Figured id post in here for anyone looking at this TV.

Selling my for an insane deal $1900 bucks local pickup in upstate new york near albany: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1468481/sharp70-le847u-aquos-quattron

After getting the TV replaced with one without some screen uniformity issues I had with the other and spending the last few months pretty happy, theres just some things inherent to LCD technology my eyes can't adjust to, has nothing to do with this model or any other brand, hell a sammy 8000 series and a Sharp elite still drive me nuts. Hard to explain but every time i look at my old 50" sammy plasma I just cant help but want to get back to a plasma.

My wife won't let me buy another TV until this one is gone so I'm just looking to unload it and cover some of the cost of the plasma i want.

The TV is great, comes with the original box, two pairs of 3D Glasses etc.

If anyone has been biteing to pull the trigger around this way heres a crazy steal of a price to do it. Still be worth it even if you had to take a few hour drive.

No offense man, but I just posted that I got this brand new for $2100 shipped from NJ. Maybe if you go a little bit cheaper you might get a quicker bite!

My set Up:
lc70le847U -- This is my second one- first one did the same thing.
Computers- I home build these and they all do the same thing. ( I have 7) all different kinds of video cards and different kinds of Motherboards, and RAM etc.. all differnet..
Cables- 1.3a and 1.4a have changed them all around and still does the same thing..
WD Media Player- IT DOES NOT do IT !!!
Dish NetWork- It does not do it ( but then again its 1080I and not 1080P)

What it does:
I call it a "STUTTER" when playing back fast actions senes. and sometimes a line shoots from right to left across the screen (not offen 2 maybe 3 times in a movie.) The stutter more offen.
The "stutter" can be from a mild one to a major one.. The movies can be from a Hard Drive or thumb drive ( makes no difference) 720p or 1080p.
When I use the computers it is the worst. I have never saw it do it on the WD Player..
OK,, same movie on a thumb drive,, play it on the computer and it will do it in the same place everyt time.. Put the same thumb drive in the WD player and it does no do it AT ALL !!
It does not matter what program you use on the computer to play it with---- With the exception of "Cyberlink Power DVD 12" if you use "cyberlink PowerDVD 13" it does,,, or anything else.. example-
VLC,GOM,UM, MPC,KM or any of the others...
When I use the BluRay Player- built into the computers,, it does NOT do it.. ( BluRays must be played with the Cyberlink programs)
Can not figure out why and niether can Sharp.. On the first set I had they replaced the motherboard , and it made no difference ( I found out they replaced the motherboard with one that was 3 years
old and had be worked on) So I took the TV back and got another one NIB..(who wants to pay 2500 for a 3 year old tv???)
I also have a 52 inch Samsung which ofcourse do it on nothing,, it just works find with everything.. Also several other TV's (LCD's) that work fine ,,, no problems..
I have a 45 inch Sharp several years old and it does the same things on it,,, So it must be a Sharp to Computer thing..
BUT, Sharp has no idea,, posts on other boards ( computer and Sharp) have gotten me nowhere...
Its something I can live with ( right on the boarder line) !!

So its between the Sharps and the Computers (yes the are all 3 gig or better, top of the line video cards, I've slowed them down, sped them up changed refresh rates) If the Samsung 70 was not 9000 I would get one of them..
One more thing that I am going to try this next week,, is a Pioneer VSX1122-K amp with the QDEO video processor in it .. (HDMI in and processes the video signal and clean it up before output). I don't hold much promiss that this will fixt the problem.. But ordered it from Wallie world and if id doesn't I can take it back..

ANYONE, ANYONE have the slightest idea what the problem can or might be????? LOVE the TV except for this problem.. But for Home Theater it a problem..
PSE PSE PSE !!!!mad.gifeek.gif
post #2365 of 2660
So what you are saying is that you have HTPC's that stutter when playing HD movies from hardrives on you Sharp and not in other tv's? I use to have a Sharp Aquos d92 and never had problems playing 720p/1080p movies. You said you used all programs? I don't see you mentioning XBMC. Have you tried that program? If not try the latest one Frodo XBMC.
post #2366 of 2660
Hi All,

I've been lurking and reading about all the trials and tribulations with our chosen television, and sadly, it is now my turn to weigh in...

I was watching my 6-week-old Sharp Aquos LC-60C8470U TV, (and had been for several hours) when I heard a "pop", and the set went dead. The power light is flashing 2 long, and 2 short flashes. I tried the aforementioned "Factory Reset" to no avail, so since Sam's Club has a 90-day return policy, it's coming down off the wall tomorrow, and going back for another try.

I'm posting this mainly to see if anyone else has had this problem. I read on another site that someone had a similar issue, with one long, and one short flash of the power light, and the result was a dead back-light.

I realize that things aren't made like they used to be (We have a 12-year-old JVC 36' standard format set that we use in our spare bedroom, and it STILL works flawlessly), but there sure seems to be a LOT of defective TV's in this forum (and not JUST Sharp, either)...

-Joey

UPDATE: I spoke with Sharp tech support, and they said that the 2-long & 2-short code indicated a "power issue". She walked me through a reset a couple of times (unplug the TV, then hold down the channel down and volume up buttons while simultaneously plugging in the TV... This method is tough to accomplish without assistance). When that did nothing she said she would have to schedule a repair man. Since it was still under the Sam's Club 90-day money back guarantee, I opted for another set, and a reset of the warranty. The new set is now hanging on the wall, and SO FAR, looks great. Of course, the previous unit looked great for six weeks!

I'll keep you posted.

-Joey

I have a week old 70le857 that also does this. I have an i7-3770k with an asus gtx680 that is hooked up. When using the computer on the tv I see a line about 4 " from the top that flashes across the screen maybe once an hour or so. It reminds me of static or a small power surge. It only seems to do it with the computer as I have not noticed it on any other source. I am an amateur builder and have built at least 30 systems over the years and have never seen this before. I had 3 65es8000s before this tv and none of them did it.

post #2369 of 2660
Well hate to say it ,, but glad its not just me with this problem.. Have you ever run a BluRay movie ( built in--on a player) thru the computer to see if it does it?? My BluRay player does not... That really confuses me..(but it takes so little !) Hopeful Sharp will come up with a software fix ,, but I'm not holding my breath..
