Hello. I can fix the error you had 95% of the update. I have the same error. Any information would be great.
Saludo!

Does anyone know how to enable "just scan" mode on the e7000? Supposedly this should take the raw signal from the PC and display it without any scaling.

Once the PC is connected and displaying push the tools button on the TV remove. It will display the current format and alternative choices. Once you set it it will remember that setting each time you connect the PC

msarro, please check or play with screen refresh rate of a graphic card of your HTPC. I had similar problems until I set it to 50 Hz.

Also check underscan setting in scaling section of the control centre of the card and set it to zero.

Hi fellas is there any advice or settings you think would be good for in store testing?

Maybe you could help this thread out that I started...http://www.avsforum.com/t/1470244/plasma-shopping-settings-advice-thread-while-in-store

My budget is flexible and can move up a bit, I'm now thinking a max of $1500 including tax and a tv stand. I usually run a tv until it drops so I desire a quality tv that will last...

The "no returns" issue should not be a concern. If the TV comes with the Samsung warranty they will repair/replace whatever needs to be repaired. I have had several panels replaced by Samsung and it's painless - service guy shows up, exchanges the panel, and you're done. Takes about an hour.

I've had the panel replaced on my E7000 as well, and to add to your comment, the panel replacement includes everything except the main board and the frame, so it's very close to getting a new TV. If the Samsung is the TV you want the "no replacement" issue shouldn't be a big concern IMO.

What if he gets the TV home and does not like something about it or is just not happy with his purchase. You know how many times people buy something thinking that is what they wanted, then get it home and notice things they just didn't realize before. You can't see and test everything in a store. The real life test is in your home, doing what you do. Discovering everything you can and things you thought you can but can't.

Samsung does not offer a satisfaction guarantee so once you own it you better be happy with it. This TV is great and most people will love it but there are some that will not for whatever their personal reason is.

I emailed Comcast today to complain was again about the hbogo app not working for comcast subscribers. I can't understand Comcast's angle on this. They are working with Samsung for hbogo to work on new flash enabled smart TVs. This does nothing to address owners of current models. Plus Samsung web interface is awful. There is an existing app that is do easy to use and works perfect. If the hbogo is important to you and you are a comcast subscriber please email william_gerth@cable.comcast.com and voice your displeasure. Also contact Samsung and complain to them. Samsung has no control over it but if enough people complain Samsung can talk to Comcast. Accessing it thru a browser will be slow, cumbersome and inconvenient to navigate. Tell Comcast to open up the app

Noooooooooooooo Frys just had the Pn64e8000 for $1649 and Amazon was price matching it.

Need this deal to pop up again, I want this TV sooo bad.

You guys agree to jump on it for $1,649 right? Even with newer models coming out

That is a nice deal to be true, whether you should take it versus using those same funds for a VT60 or 8500 is a personal decision. Both the VT60 and 8500 will have superior black level performance based on the reviews. The 8500 has a much faster response to the Smart features and also gets the newer Smart TV operating system. Gaming wise, should you care, the VT60 UK equivalent was measured to have a very insignificant display lag. However the 8500 was in comparison much slower in that department.

It really is a judgement call. For my money I am very happy with my 60E8000... today. However I definitely see myself likely transitioning into a VT60 or 8500 within 1 year's time. In my opinion the features, image quality and processing speed improvements are worth the higher purchase price.


Currently have a 60E8000 still in its return window and wanted to get the boards thoughts. The panel when displaying pure white has very faint "pinkish" areas mostly vertically oriented. Is this a common issue with this panel? If so, for those who have seen in their TV's what did you end up doing about it?

To be fair, in regular content like hockey or snow it is effectively not apparent unless you look specifically at the image quality in those areas. For all other content, the panel looks fantastic. However the issue still is there and it leaves me debating whether to return it or not as I received an amazing deal on this one from Amazon.

Don't upgrade to the 8500 for smart features and quad core. You can upgrade your current TV through the evolution kit which then upgrades your E8000 to Samsungs latest smart content and GUI and also upgrades your E8000 to a quad core. Price is not official yet but will be under $300. No one knows exactly how much though. It is a simple plug and play device that your TV has a port for in the back if you were not already aware.

Just thought I would throw that out there for you if you were not aware of this feature of your TV.

I would. It is a great TV. Even though the blacks are not up to par with the 2013 plasma's it is still a good deal. At that price it is either that or a 60" ST60. The ST60 will give a better picture but I would probably pick size over it though. If we were talking 60" vs 60" I would go ST60. I have the ST60 that I received for a swap from an E7000. If they had an 64E7000 or 64E8000 I would have chosen those for size alone. No complaints about the Sammy picture and they would have kept me happy being a larger size.

Like I said, same size I would choose the ST60 unless smart features are important to you. Samsung's smart features are top notch.

Xbox etc: TURN ON GAME MODE FIRST: ie System Menu;;>>>General>>Game Mode>ON

That will automatically put you in STANDARD Mode for your Picture Mode BUT with all the advanced settings off you will get as little Game Lag as possible////super important right!

For your pic settings I would Reduce your Cell light from 20 to maybe 18/17 if you are playing games with a Big bright Ammo counter for hours cool.gif since you maaaay get some IR ie a residual image... Apart from that the only thing I changed was the HDMI Black level is now NORMAL as I think it defaults to that in Standard mode but if you Flip OFF game mode on that input back to Movie you can change it to Low if your games look 'washed" out on "Normal".... on the other hand if you have Black Crush like I did then Normal is the better choice..

I play like this and don't even think about IR really and NO I don't see the lag or Image tearing that other gamer was talking about eek.gif and YES I play Black Ops CoD etc so I know...

This not answering his question. Film mode is only available when the source outputs an interlaced signal (auto1 and auto 2) to properly deinterlace film content, or a 24p signal (cinema smooth) to enble 96hz mode.

Video games are output at 1080/60p or 720/60p, thus neither is an option.

But yes, video game mode will improve input lag time by turning of unnecessary video processing, but it also will make film mode anavailable all together, I believe.

UPDATE: Film mode is available in game mode when receiving an interlaced signal.

Now the main reason why I want to turn it on is because when playing video games on my e7000 things are not so clear. When not moving the camera around and just standing still the picture is fine, however when I move my character or if i rotate the screen to look in different directions I get a judder effect, very unclear picture, it only affects my surroundings but not my character if it is a 3rd person game and not my gun if it is a first person game. In first person games it does not affect it as much however. I have tried multiple sources, XBOX360, PS3 even my computer. On the computer it is not as bad but it is still there.

I really would love to love this TV I switched over from my 46 inch Samsung LCD which was a wonderful TV. This is my first plasma, maybe this is just how a plasma plays games? Is it something I have to get used to? It is very annoying, if anyone has some gaming experience with these sets please throw in some info.

Thank you

Organ...again it is because you don't have GAME mode on...that is what it is for is to Reduce any input lag and get rid of extra processing like Dynamic mode which can cause the kind of judder you describe.. PLASMAS are waaay better than LCD screens because of the refresh rate as you should know...when LCDs first came out they even had trails behind moving objects tongue.gif

So don't worry you did buy the right TV...of course all tvs have different response rates so you have different input lag figures..but that is in milliseconds and is not going to cause the very noticeable judder you see...If you still see this on Game mode you got a problem...

Been gaming on Sammy plasmas for the last 8 yrs..NO issues like that...

just noticed this line in the middle of my PN64E8000. I just took a pic with flash and noticed this line. It's just visible when I take a pic with flash. Anyone else have this problem. ?

I am still not sure if you are trolling but if you are not, it is the reflection from the flash.

Ok that's all. I've had my Tv since it came out last year and been in this thread since the beginning ok. FYI. It was just a simple question. No wonder this thread has died out. People like you ruined it.

Dude, you need to chill out. When someone states the obvious we think the obvious which is the person is just trolling or being funny.

The "pinkish areas" are seen occasionally with this panel - I had one that had it. It's best described as "panel uniformity" issues. I had a panel replaced by Samsung for this issue ( it was a really big deal for me because I calibrate TVs and the discolored areas can really mess up the calibration). If you contact Samsung, be prepared to spend 30 minutes or more talking to Service Moron. Be polite and be persistent and accept nothing less than a new panel. Depending on the technician they send out to your house, you may need to suffer through the same discussion because often the technician won't agree it's a problem - "this is normal", but it is not. Since it came from Amazon you don't have the option to do a store exchange. After the install ask the technician to put up a 100% white FIELD and confirm that there's no issue. (He can scroll through all the other fields and you can see if there are any other problems like stuck pixels or issues with other color fields).
