Try a reset.

Haven't heard many say they have seen dead pix. If your not seeing them don't fret it.

I don't remember my box but it's on the s/n sticker on the back too.

What Op's said on both. If you don't see dead or stuck pixels, you're good. Maybe more info on the jumping problem though. Is is always from the same source or is it on every source. For info on a full reset and more, check the Guide link in my signature.

I have the US02 panel , manufactured in October 2012 with fw. 1020.
The uniformity is excellent...motion handling is great...
Colors are pleasing...I have'nt change any settings yet.
3D Pop is jaw dropping coming off the D6900's weak 3D.
I like the design and the bezel is even thinner than the very thin D6900.
Love the gloss screen, black levels are not as deep in the dark-yet great in daylight.
Definitely a step up from last year's D series.

It really is heartwarming, especially at this time of year, to hear all these sucess stories...I think my fear of future issues and replacement woes was unfounded and I can now just go back to enjoying things!!!

Unfortunately, there is no way to tell the manufacture date by the label on the box. You need to look at the S/N label on the back of the TV. The box label will tell you where it was manufactured, but not when.

Yes and no..... it's always better to find out about dead pixels within the exchange period then notice one once you can not exchange or return it, but yes.... you will indeed enjoy the set more if you don't worry about any potential issues such as pixels, banding, uniformity, flashlighting, etc.

To check, simply use color slides that plasma owners use to break in a set. You can find a link in the plasma forums, or search on you tube and you will find them there as well.

Thanks for all the positive support.

I had 3 plus years of great HDTV experience with a Samsung A850 that was almost perfect.

The Samsung ES7100 is a dream after months of panel repairs and banding/general poor picture quality.

After dialing in the settings I like it even more. biggrin.gif

The flickering problems happens occasionally. I see it on cable, on Netflix, and blue-rays. For example when someone's wearing a jacket and you can see the zipper it flickers like if the zipper is jumping up and down. Also when I watch ink master on spike I see it sometimes even their hair flickers and lines around objects flickers in a jumping motion.
post #8440 of 16126
O also when I do a full reset and they show you the scenery video there's this scene where a guy on a snowboard jumps over these trees and the tree always flickers
post #8441 of 16126
So you already did a reset.... and you saw the problem during the reset? That's not good. I can't answer for sure but I'd return it if I could and if I couldn't then I'd be contacting Samsung. I think someone said the best way to initiate that was through the TV itself. Sorry to hear that, man.

I have the 65es8000 since the 25th and I've been fairly happy. I have a Nov 2012 date and my biggest issues is vertical banding. It's not very easy to see but it's there. I'm also trying to get into 3d but I believe that my eyes don't agree with active 3d. My right eye is weaker than my left and wearing the 3d glasses over the prescription is very uncomfortable. Also I'm think I'm seeing flickering. Other than that I hope my TV doesn't die on the 377th day LOL. Great info from everyone on this thread, thanks all.
post #8443 of 16126
Hey there, Needis. Sorry to hear a Nov 65" has banding but good to hear it's slight. It still sounds like the Nov builds are a big improvement which is good news. You didn't mention flashlighting or clouding so that;s good too for these. 3D isn't for everyone and some people honestly don't see it that well. If you're "fairly" happy, what would make you "very" happy? If you say "if it were plasma" though, I'll know you're Bolt. smile.gif

But like bolt said its your call.

I ask BB to price match Paul'sTV "no sale tax" and got the $200 GC, I'm satisfied.

BOLT!!! hahaha...busted. No clouding but a little bit of flashlight till I tried your setting on movie and it all good. I thought about taking it back for an exchange but from what I read on this forum, 65 vertical banding is given. I figure that I see the banding so infrequent that I'll just live with it. The only TV that was near perfect for me was the Elite, but no way I'm spending $8xxx.

It sucks that passive 3d worked AMAZING for me without my prescription glasses.
post #8446 of 16126
I hear ya. I agree a lot of our choices comes down to money vs features. You passed the Bolt test at least.

He is not me, garnoch. Its that much a surprise to you that a person is not happy with the tv? Real cool bro. Look at his other posts.
post #8448 of 16126
Like 7011, either I was being too straight faced in my joke or you are now. Either way, 7011 has competition.

The elite is impressive. Only led i would consider for my HT. I wasnt a fan of the poor color accuracy though. If u can get passed the uniformity , the es8000 is not a bad set at all. Let us know what happens!
post #8450 of 16126
When I first notice the vertical banding, it really bothered me, but I keep track of it for the next five days to see how often I would noticed it and I've decide to just put up with it. Might be a bad idea.

You are a piece of work. What's up?

Isn't this what you really think of the ES?

Your post below;


Post #8185 in the VT threads

Yeah the Samsung edge lit led sets are pretty awful if you ask me. Their ES series is even worse than their D series. I tested a ES8000 LED and it was a joke, literally. You will be much happier with the VT50. After a few months watching your VT50, you will not even want to watch your LED anymore.


Post #8317 VT threads

Cmay, the es8000 is not a glass panel. Wait until you feel how cheap it is. You could blow it over. If u like bluish blacks and the worst uniformity and banding the industry has to offer, then you may enjoy it. Letterbox movies and dark movies are absolutely atrocious on that set. Shadow detail is really bad too. The chrome bezel is cheap little aluminum slider things and they dont even meet each other at the edges, very cheaply made. Im telling you, you are going to be very disappointed! Off angle axis is also horrendous. You need to be sitting dead center or else u will be looking at a even more washed out image. I wish i could say your in for a treat, but in the case of the es8000 your in for a nightmare.

So I got my new AVR set up (Pioneer Elite VSX-53) and am overall very happy with it. I need to do some tweaking to the sound, but it's pretty impressive so far. I also have to go through my calibration again.

Anyway, I'm having a problem getting the ARC to work. That's one of the two reasons I wanted a new receiver. I've got the AVR connected to the TV through HDMI2 and have enabled Anynet+ (or whatever it's called), but can't get sound out the AVR from the TV. I've set up the AVR properly from what the manual says, but no luck. Anyone accomplish this ARC before?
post #8453 of 16126
I actually looked at the es8000 better and I changed my outlook on it since then. It really is not bad. I checked a November build date which was much better to my surprise. Minor banding/clouding compared to my test unit. The flashlighting was completely non existent on the november build. Alot less light coming through the panel making blacks look better as well. My co workers were also surprised. We also checked a october date one and that was horrible too. Whatever they did to their november panels did wonders!

Bolt, come on at least try a little harder than that. Post 8317 in the VT thread was FOUR meager days ago...
post #8455 of 16126
If like the Onkyo, the AVR still needs a specific input selected. Plus you may need to turn a couple setting on in the AVR - again, if it's like my Onkyo.
post #8456 of 16126
You dont know where i work and what I do for a living. Trust me. November build i tested was great. Im gonna look at it more tomorrow tomorrow and measure the blacks compared to my test unit. Ill have more info tomorrow. For now, off to bed.

Man the panel lottery really does matter, the ES800 ranges from worst TV of all time through to Not Bad At All.. Interesting that we should attribute that to Build Date rather than your posting audience. Insufficient data at this point but I would bet your Credibility would be polling lower today than four days ago...

Looking forward to your test data and theory on whether this is build date or just a single bad panel that you previously viewed. Also looking forward to your new posts in the VT thread!!!
post #8458 of 16126
For some reason the audio delay resets back to zero everytime I turn off the TV. I only need it for Netflix as there is about a 200ms difference between video and audio. Anybody else notice this?

No disrespect here but what I still don't get is, you own the best plasma on the market today, but have just a few post in the VT threads. Why aren't you sharing there? 95% of your post are here with in these threads. I follow several threads and the VT is an active one. Surely you could add value to the VT owners.

There's a label on the back left side of the TV. Third line above the bar code.
