post #2821 of 4280
Just bought the PN51E7000. Is there a break-in procedure/slides I can use for this tv?

Thanks in advance!

If you really want to there is but it is absolutely not necessary.

If you can't get an explanation and can't figure out how to escalate this situation, you deserve what you get.

Yeah there's no way i'd give up and claim defeat. A last resort is small claims court. Bring all the documentation and emails proving Samsung's refusal to fix it and even the TV itself and i can't imagine a judge finding in Samsung's favor.

Please bear with me, I'm certain it has been discussed before but it's new to me.

The 60E7000 is my first plasma, I don't know how much concern I should have about burn in. It's in the first couple of weeks of use and I have set cell light, brightness and contrast to the midpoint levels. Where I watch many news networks with their scrolls, I instinctively every ten minutes or so switch momentarily to another source.

We would like to try out the 3D ability. The Starz network has 3D in VOD. I don't know why but all that is available there is in a picture aspect that leaves black bars on the top and bottom of the picture. First, I am curious, does that always occur in 3D material (because it wasn't so in store displays)? Most important, should I avoid watching such display for fear of burn in of the black bars? I remember reading something about changing the bars to a different color to avoid burn in but I can't find any such settings.

Any advice would be appreciated and if you find these novice questions, on many issues you too were novices once.

Thanks

I deleted my post after the "chambery" post was deleted. I thought my turd reference was a bit out of line biggrin.gif
I really wanted to know the facts around that post. There's something he was misrepresenting or not telling us.

Check out the link above in post #2824. It's a personal decision. For every 10 people that think you benefit from running slides there are 10 that disagree. I err on the side of caution and run the slides. I've never had even the slightest bit of IR, but the next 10 post will not have run slides and they have no problems either.

Would anyone know why on some sources the ability to "zoom" is grayed out and on some other sources when bringing up tools, the menu doesn't show the ability to adjust picture size at all?

This is from the e-manual. You can download the PDF from the Samsung website.

– Component (480i, 480p): 16:9,

Zoom1, Zoom2, 4:3

– DTV (720p): 16:9, Wide Fit, 4:3,

– DTV (1080i, 1080p): 16:9, Wide Fit,

– Component(720p): 16:9, Wide Fit, 4:3

– Component(1080i, 1080p): 16:9, Wide

Fit, 4:3, Screen Fit

Thanks, but it's strange, on HDMI 1 watching a 3D movie from VOD, the tools menu doesn't give me any picture size option.

I can't speak from experience as I've never attempted to use the zoom function, but per that list the HDMI input does not have the zoom feature available. Looks like the signal needs to be 480i or 480p in the component input. Even the component input loses the zoom feature at 720p and up.

Yolu can't change the aspect of a 3D image.
post #2835 of 4280
Hi guys,

I've read that the game lag is not supposed to be that great on the E7000 and that the ST50 beats it in every way. My question is has anyone tried just switching the tv to PC mode? which is supposed to turn off all the tv's video processing. You can do this by editing the source.

Thanks...

After multiple repairs, Samsung finally replaced my d7000 with an e7000. I can honestly say that these two sets are not even in the same league. The pq is so much better on the e, and is mind blowing. With this considered, and the absence of fbr/pops, this is by far the best set I have ever seen. The d series is a lemon despite what David K. gets paid to say. The crispness and clarity of the d series is not on par with what you expect of a 2012 set, the e is above par.

you can if you play using Plex. And yes, there is an unofficial copy out there for e series, just as there was before it was added to the app store for the d series.

Congrats on scoring an E series. It's a fine display. What size do you have?

I saw some calibrations settings for the E8000, but does anyone have a list of good E7000 settings? I just picked up the 51" today and can't seem to find a good setup...

I entered the settings from this calibration, but the white levels look awful. Anyone have a better list?

Thank you!
post #2840 of 4280
The only settings thread is for the D series. As to why, my guess is that use of Movie mode with a few basic adjustments makes most people pretty happy and thus the demand for settings info isn't as great as for other makes and models.
post #2841 of 4280
Why do all the settings I see for the E8000 have cell light at or near 20, when the factory setting was 100 for all modes?

What cell light level do you guys use for the E7000, especially in movie mode?

20 is the highest the cell light can go. That's where I have mine.

Right. Sorry, I was thinking of something else.
post #2844 of 4280
Sorry for what may be a redundant post, but I have the 60e8000, and I have tried a variety of settings that others have posted after calibration. They all seem to begin and end in movie mode, and every last one of them make the whites look off white at best if not yellowish. After I get finished inputting the settings, I ask myself "what the heck are they watching?"

I'm not smart enough to mess with the hard core settings, but the best I can make this tv look start in standard mode and not movie mode. Am I crazy?

I would consider a pro calibration, but I fear that I may be dissatisfied with the results. Thoughts anyone? Thanks in advance for your patience.

I am the same way. I can't stand movie mode. You just like colder colors and some people like warmer colors. Personally I can't stand my colors set up warm. I actually have a free calibration from Best Buy, but I haven't bothered using it for the same reason as you. I have seen their calibration examples in the store and they look to warm for my tastes.

I thought I liked warm better too, but apparently not. I'm a pretty simple guy. I watch a lot of football, and I like the colors to look as if I were physically at the game. I like the bright reds of my team's uniforms on a sunny day, but I like the grass looking like the real stuff, not the painted look. Oh well. I thought this was more of a science, but I guess it boils down to personal preference.

Movie mode/warm are outdated, it's to emulate the old movie theater with old lightbulb projector, that can't give pure white color.

LMAO...where did you come up with that nonsense?:biggrin.gif

It's as much science as you want to make of it. If you want to adjust to a preference other than broadcast standards you can do that or if you want to measure and adjust to these standards you can do that, your choice. Warm 2 is measurably closer to broadcast standards and the natural color temperature of a large majority of real world illumination, cool "looks" whiter but most illuminated objects in the real world never approach the color temperature of the cool setting.
