Official Sharp AQUOS LC-60LE847U & LC-70LE847U Owners Thread - Page 82

post #2431 of 2660
I was able to watch my new copy of Ghostbusters yesterday. The new transfer is great. The movie itself activates a hidden x.v.Color setting on my Sharp LC-60LE847U. I had to fiddle with the settings a bit to get it as close to how my movie setting looks for regular BD's (mainly I had to lower the contrast from 33 to 27 since anything higher clips when receiving the x.v.Color signal). I feel Sony dropped the ball with not having the hidden test patterns encoded in x.v.Color to get the most out of these new discs.

Still, the additional video setting on this set was a nice surprise.

Cool! I wonder if the 845 does that.
How did you know that it was activated?
Did it show up as a different Video menu?
Would you know if you didn't access the menu for some reason (I almost never do anymore after calibration).
Was it a 3D title as well?
Inquiring minds want to know...smile.gif

Looks like that is not available on the 845 -- along with the quad-pixel thing that everyone shuts off as well.
I'm glad I'm not missing anything -- I wonder how you can get an extended gamut when the red output of
the white LEDs is so anemic in even the normal RGB space. I guess I won't have to worry...

Page 24 of the 845 manual:
* "x.v.Color" can only be selected when an x.v.Color
signal is input using HDMI 1 to 4.

x.v.Color: Supports the x.v.Color international standard
for wide color space. The x.v.Color signal allows you
to experience colors that conventional color signals
cannot reproduce.
Page 29"

The audio and video settings can be changed to suit
the program or input content being watched.
Select from the following AV modes.
Example: When the input source is TV, COMPONENT,
VIDEO 1 or 2:
AUTO/STANDARD/MOVIE/GAME/USER/DYNAMIC/
DYNAMIC(Fixed)

When the input source is PC IN or HDMI 1 to 4:
AUTO/STANDARD/MOVIE/GAME/PC/USER/x.v.Color/
DYNAMIC/DYNAMIC(Fixed)

It just suddenly displayed x.v.Color on the popup that usually announces the resolution and frame rate of a given video source. Also, by the default it went to an extra AV Mode that said x.v.Color.
post #2436 of 2660
Are there any calibration discs that have x.v.Color test patterns?

What type of blu-ray player were you using? A Sony? Many BD players have a control for deep color, but there has been no content.

Playstation 3. However, the PS3 doesn't force x.v.Color but rather sends the signal when it detects it on the disc. Which is why Ghostbusters is the only disc I have that passes an x.v.Color signal to my TV from my PS3.

I know there's no actual content except for these new discs but was hoping someone had been forward thinking when authoring their calibration discs.

It's a real shame Sony only included standard patterns with these new discs. But then, they didn't even include any patterns whatsoever with their old Superbit DVD's.

Thanks for that!

OK !! I have finally found the fix for this problem !!
And the answer is.. Turn AERO on in Windows 7 and 8.. the will stop the blocking and tearing,, or at least it does on mine.. I still get minor blocking but the tearing is gone altogether.. now to answer the reason why this works,,,,, I have no fricking idea.. Aero should not even effect the quality of the video being watched on any of the video players, but fixes it on all of them..
And just as an aside note Power DVE 13 is amazing at the picture quality,,, BUT very pricie !! You'd have to see it to believe it ( also in the upconverting streaming !!)

Glad you found the solution, that is very weird that Aero would affect anything with playback. Do you see any improvement with Bluray movies in Power DVD 13?
post #2442 of 2660
The BluRays are so good to begin with its hard to tell,,, BUT all the movies that I download the improvement is great... I'd say a V7 moive improves to a V9.. Ireally like the new PowerDvD 13.. they have made some vast improvements,, and I found someplace on E-Bay selling the Ultra for 39.95... I just coudn't pass it up..

and now one that I have talked to can explain the AERO thing,, and I've talked to some pretty smart people !!.. Also strange only happens on Sharp TV's !!

Close up with Menu TV Input.JPG 2957k .JPG file TV No Menu Showing.JPG 2724k .JPG file Close up with Menu.JPG 2904k .JPG file Good evening all,
I'm new to this forum and recently purchased a Sharp LC-70LE847U (less than 3 weeks ago). I've been experiencing a series of large lines near the middle of my screen. I have the same issue regardless of input (cable television or HDMI from receiver). I contacted Sharp and they performed a "Hard Rest" which corrected the problem for about 4 days. The problem re-occurred and prompted another call, which resulted in another "Hard Re-set" from Sharp Customer Service. I was directed to send a series of photographs depicting the problem and now I am waiting for the next move? Has anyone else experienced this problem with their set and if so what can I expect.
My wife and I are pretty upset to say the least, after spending $2300.00 to end up in this situation. I've included a few of the photos that I sent to Sharp Aquos Advantage, for your evaluation. Any ideas or help of what might be causing this problem?

Let us know how Sharp treats your problem!
post #2445 of 2660
Yeah, that's pretty bad! I hope they get you a new set quickly.
post #2446 of 2660
Just an FYI for peeps with Windows 8. There is no Aero interface to enable as Microsoft did not include it. Windows 8 uses a new version of the display manager which doesn't include 99% of what Aero had. Just wanted to add this info so people didn't go scratching their heads trying to find "Aero" in windows 8.

Good Evening,
This is an update from the other day's posting. I just got off the phone with a Sharp Customer Service Manager and was informed that upon review of the photographs sent, the panel was defective. Sharp is replacing my LC-70LE847U with a newer LC-70LE757U. I was told to expect my new set in 7 to 10 working days, via a freight company called "NVC Services". The freight company will set up the new television (to verify it works properly) and take the broken set with them. Sharp is covering ALL costs involved. I will post another update, once the newer LC-70LE757U arrives. I have to say that so far I am completely satisfied with Sharp's Customer Service Department. Prior to the photographs being sent, I had a representative on the phone for nearly an hour trying to help correct the issues I was experiencing.
post #2448 of 2660
Hey CGGorman, been filing through this thread and enjoy your various settings that you have posted. Have you ever posted a "sports" settings config?
post #2449 of 2660
any feedback on the 757 u or 745 u...thank u
post #2450 of 2660
Good evening, I wanted to update fellow Sharp LC-70LE847U owners, on my situation. A few weeks ago, I began experiencing a series of lines in the middle of my screen, called customer service who walked me through a 'hard reset" (Note: My set was less than 1 week old). About 4 days later same problem came back and I called Sharp again this time I was directed by Sharp to send a series of photographs depicting the problem and copy of original sales receipt for technicians to review. Sharp decided to replace my LC-70LE847U with a newer LC-70LE757U (2013 Model) the panel was defective on the original set from what I was told. I received my new television today (took about 6 business days to ship) and the freight company took the broken set with them to send back to Sharp. ALL free of charge and paid by Sharp. I've heard "War Stories" about customer service and how Sharp doesn't back their products, I on the other hand experienced 1st customer service. I worked with the reps while on the telephone (it's not their fault, your set is experiencing problems THEY did not personally manufacture it) and with a little mature understanding on both parties involved the problem was ultimately resolved. I am in the process of trying different calibration settings with the new LC-70LE757U and have only found a few within AVS owners forums, which I'm tweeking this evening. Bottom line is Sharp backs their products based on my experience and if you develop issues with your set, please give them a chance to correct the issue.

Sharp tech support first had me unplug the tv for 45 seconds (didn't help). Next they had me do a factory reset (worked for a day)
Has anyone else had a similar issue?
Did You Ever Get This Resolved?

Has anyone shared their settings after a calibration. I'd like to send them to a friend who bought the LC70LE847U.


Thanks,

Thanks for the tips. Looks like I'll probably be the one setting up the adjustments for him. I've got my fingers crossed it looks nice afterwards!

I've been trying to just do a quick calibration with the Disney wow disc but in 3d and just need to know what it defaults the color gamut and motion flow to since both of these are greyed. I am thinking the gamut is expanded and from the decrease in brightness I think it might be 240hz. Can anyone confirm? This is for the 70le847u btw. Is there any way (perhaps through a service menu) to change the gamut to standard in other modes other than movie?

I don't think it defaults to 240hz. Try the new Spears and Munsil calibration disk. It has specific routines for calibrating in 3D. I would not muck about with the service menu if you don't know what you're doing. There are specific adjustments for 3D in the menu settings when it is in 3D mode.

I used the THX blue filter glasses to adjust the color and tint on my LC-70LE847U and got pretty extreme results: Color +10 and Tint +17. These results couldn't possibly be correct because in the color clipping step pattern I could only make out the distinct steps by putting the tint back to zero and changing the color to -4.

Is the use of a blue filter to adjust color and tint not appropriate for Quattron TV's because of the extra yellow pixel? If that's the case is there any other way to approximate appropriate color without a light meter or relying on the human eye?

Wow, that is not normal. What mode are you trying to calibrate in? When I adjust, I just use the CMS controls for Saturation, Hue, and Value, and leave the color and tint at 0. That gives you control over red, yellow, green, cyan, magenta, and blue. Give that a shot. Use movie mode or game mode - I've found I get slightly more accurate colors in game mode. I don't have a meter to calibrate at this time, but I'll post my settings later when in front of my screen. Good luck!

What disc did you use? I had the same horrid results. The only time I can get decent color/tint that matches the blue filter and isn't over saturated is in movie mode when the color gamut is changed to standard. Like you I am convinced the yellow pixel plays a part in it. I have also noticed many peoples settings have blues turned down a lot. I also always felt my set had excessive blue push.


Myoda: how do you properly adjust the cms with the blue filter? Do you start with one color over an other or a certain order for hue, value, saturation

I used the AVS disc. And I was in User mode. I'll try Movie mode but what is the process/sequence for using CMS with a blue filter?
