This shot was taken of the end credits of a movie and shows no light bleed whatsoever. The source material is a .mkv file with video resolution of 1280 X 544, meaning the actual part of the screen that is filled with an image is only about half of the screen with the top 1/4 of the screen and the bottom 1/4 of the screen having no content. If you look closely you can see the LG logo below the in 'E' in "Bruce."

This is what I mean by not being concerned with edge bleeding WHILE YOU ARE WATCHING content. It just isn't there.
So really people, let's not get our boxers in a bunch over edge light bleed with no signal present. If you have it while watching content, yes, I would be concerned.

I would be thrilled if my set looked like that, but it gives me hope that I can maybe get a set im happy with. Where did you get your set from? Also do you have local dimming on in those pics?

I ordered the service remote today from them also, we'll see how it works out. I had a coupon from my last purchase so it was less than on Ebay, plus if it does not work they will take it back.
This remote also works for the 47LM7600? The Magic Remote is the only one that shows up for that model TV on this website.

Just got this from Amazon to replace my Panasonic I got like 2 years ago. Has some clouding and edge bleeding, only really shows when I'm loading Gears of War 3. I was wondering about calibration settings for the game mode. I play a lot of Gears of War and from testing it out it seems way to bright for me when I'm playing on some maps, especially Bullet Marsh when the lightning kicks in or when I'm near the barrel on fire in the middle. Does anyone have a calibration setting that will minimize that as well as even things out?

Not sure why it's listed that way unless LG does not officially supply that remote for the 47 inch model, but they are the same TV, different screen size.

What is the trick to get the "Expert Patterns" to come on? I have tried all the different picture modes and it is always grayed out. I also tried the tuner mode and is the same.

I'd like to know if someone here has actually used the AKB73615313 remote on the 47LM7600 model TV and how it works. I'd hate to buy it and then find out it doesn't, just in case. Does anyone have a close-up photo of the remote to see the buttons on it? Thanks
post #847 of 3922
Your 47" is the exact same TV as my 55". It will work. It works on my two year old model, will work on most any model.

Ok, thanks. Do you know if there's a photo of the remote online that shows the buttons? I tried to google it but couldn't find a picture close enough to make out the buttons. Is there a button to get to the episode guide on the TV OTA channels? or a "quick-view" button?
post #849 of 3922
Yes, the "Info" button brings up the banner with that information. It has a 3D button, mute, favorites, quick selection colored buttons, (they are not programmable, if you look some screens in the menus for smart apps have a color, pick that color on the remote and you have picked that selection, saves clicking over to it and then having to pick it) Has AV mode, Home, Settings, exit, my apps, ratio, input, etc.. etc...

Got the set from Best Buy on June 22nd. I believe I have local dimming set on LOW.

You'll have to play around with it. You can make adjustments while the game is up and running on the screen. On the magic remote, push HOME, then select SETTINGS, then PICTURE. You should be able to change the brightness, back lighting, and other picture settings. On my set when I start to make a change the window with the setting controls in it gets smaller and I can see about 3/4 of the screen behind it. When you make changes you can immediately see the effect on the screen.

I know that GAME mode has Brightness set to 50, Contrast is 90 and Backlight is also pretty high at 60. I'd start turning down those adjustments to tone down the brightness. Also for gaming, make sure TRU-MOTION is off (it is set to OFF as default in GAME mode) and also make sure LOCAL DIMMING is OFF. These settings affect input lag and if you have them both off you will minimize lag.

Get to this point in the Settings Menu. With the Picture Mode highlighted, you should be able to press down on the wheel on the magic remote and then be able to scroll down to Expert 1 and Expert 2.

450


Select Expert 1 and start making your adjustments. The deeper you get into the menu the more specialized the settings become. I believe the last two options are White Balance and Color Selection (I think...) This is where you do the fine tuning of the picture that really makes it pop.

I followed these settings with a couple variations:

http://reviews.lcdtvbuyingguide.com/lg-lcd-tv/lg-lm7600-calibration-settings.html

I have:

Brightness: 45, (not 57) but will depend on ambient lighting in your particular room.
H-Sharpness and V-Sharpness: both 30 (not 25)
LED Local Dimming: LOW, (not OFF)
Edge Enhancement: ON, (not OFF)
My numbers for BLUE are: -8, -5, 2

You just have to experiment with the settings until you find the sweet spot. I can say that with these settings, in my room ambience the picture simply looks gorgeous. I mean I find myself thinking, "that's an incredibly good picture" so frequently that I have to tell myself to stop it.

Do you guys notice the same?

I've read for an LCD screen the LG 6700 and 7600 (8600 & 9600) have a wider viewing angle than most LCD screens. I know mine is much better than a friend's Sony. In my room setup there aren't any seating areas that are too far off center so I'm good. I have experimented with off angle viewing and I thought it was pretty good, meaning you'd have to be quite a ways off axis to have significant PQ degradation.

I'd say that yes, you are spoiled by the viewing angle on your plasma.

Thanks for listing some of the buttons! I appreciate the info.

I was referring to the "Expert Patterns" test patterns which are grayed out on my set. Do you have access to them on your set?

Under "Expert Control" in the picture settings.
post #858 of 3922
Expert Pattern is used with the TV tuner, and is not greyed out with some of the modes, such as expert or Cinema. Other inputs have Color Filter available with certain modes, (Not Game) such as Expert or Cinema. The idea is, the pattern would be generated by the device not the TV for inputs other than the TV tuner, such as a Blu-Ray player using a calibration disk. The TV tuner is the device being inputted so the test pattern is generated, but other devices can control the picture with their settings for the other inputs, again such as settings on a Blu- Ray player.

I don't have access to it with the tuner in any picture modes. The two Samsungs I tried had access to the patterns, which is helpful if you don't have Bluray.
post #861 of 3922
If you have a 7600 you should. I checked just to be sure and it is not greyed out when using the TV tuner, and it has two choices when you pick it.

Hi

has anyone tried watching a 3D SBS picture using this TV. I have a SBS 3d in MP4 format in a USB drive. when i stick it to my TV and click on the 3D option, it does not ask for the picture mode. instead it just asks to put the 3d glasses and it shows both the frames in 3d mode side by side.

where as when i play a blue ray in a blu ray player, it does ask for the "what to do" like 2d->3d etc.

any solution to watch 3d SBS blu ray from thumb drive? unfortunately LG blue ray player does not support USB drive. crap frown.gif
post #863 of 3922
I have done 3d SBS MKV files from my external hard drive with no problem. Sometimes it automatically went into SBS 3d and sometimes I had to select it manually but in either case it correctly played back SBS 3d
post #864 of 3922
Just installed two different LG TVs (7600 and 8600) in two different locations with two different model routers with similar results. In both cases if I connect my PC via a hardwire ethernet connection to my router - and the TV wireless to the network, everything works fine - I can see the TV on the computer and can see the PC on the TV. I can locate and play videos stored on the PC on the TVs. However, if I change the PC network connection to wireless, I still can see the TV on the PC but the TV cannot locate the PC. The TV is still hooked up to the LAN and can access the internet, but cannot see the PC.

You are of course, correct! However, it doesn't work unless you actually set up the input! Which I hadn't done, but have now!

Thanks!
post #866 of 3922
The online manual says that you can control your cable box with the magic remote but I can't seem to find that function on the TV. Is that a function for another model? That would be great if it could be used on this set.

I received my set a couple weeks ago and noticed something very interesting:

1) When I first received it, the light bleeding on the edges was medium to high. This wasn't just when there was no signal. When netlfix would load a title and display the name in the center, the bleed was distracting.
2) After mounting it using a wall mount (instead of the stand), the light bleeding diminished.
3) About 2 weeks later, I can barelly see it. In fact, I'm straining to see any light bleed.

So is the wall mount distributing pressure more evenly, reducing the bleeding, or is it just burn-in/settling from storage??? Is it possible that a lot of the bad light bleed is due to the TV being held at the edges during installation (or packaging) that needs some time to settle and redistribute after???
Dunno, but its interesting how in 2 weeks the light bleed went from terrible to barelly noticable. Wonder how much the wall mount had to do with it.

Secondly, the 2D picture is a lot better then I expected. TruMotion makes high deff appear even higher resolution since your brain can assemble the sequenced images better. In 3D TruMotion appears to be disabled. I have 4 kids and all of them get tired of watching 3D after about 20m or so. Combined with the crisper 2D picture, we're beggining to not want to ever turn the 3D on anymore, and thats only after 2 weeks!

I'm begginig to think 3D may be more of a passing fad unless they can figure out how to make the image easier on the eyes. The LG passive 3D is as easy on the eyes as you can get since there are no flashing images, so the eyes must be getting tired due to the extreme image separation, or the unatural pairing of focal point with image separation. Maybe one day they'll solve this issue, but for now I think our 3D will mainly be set to off...

Some good thoughts there. Since reading the posts about bleeding edges I looked closer at mine, and thought it was less than when I first installed the TV. But didn't give it anymore thought.
The 2D picture is indeed stunning. As I posted, side by side it honestly had a better overall picture than the Samsung or Sony in the same price range. It is the most natural looking to my eyes. Although not for movies, I really like how the picture looks with trumotion on also. My brother in-law when he first saw it said it almost had a 3D look to it.

I didn't buy the TV for 3D, but it's fun to use sometimes. I'm also not convinced 3D will be more than it is now - occasional use, more for fun or for special effects. I have to say I am surprised that 2D to 3D does work not all that badly.
post #870 of 3922
3D is something you check out when you buy the TV but soon you'll realize it's nothing you really desire. I've had a 3D TV for 2 years and now this LG is my second one. I can count with both hands the number of times I've used 3D in 2 years. It's not natural, it's not comfortable, just seems like something we shouldn't be doing. And when I try to watch it I have to do it alone because my wife gets a headache if she tries, my son is 2 and 1/2 years old so he can't do it (3D is not for anyone under 6 and should be avoided between 6 and 10 yo). But whenever I buy a movie that has a regular and a 3D version I get 3D just in case smile.gif
