You will lose all your info and calibration settings but you will get back to the firmware your tv was shipped with...

That option only resets the settings, not the firmware I'm afraid. There's no way you can roll back a firmware update, at least than I know.Does anyone has the service menu code for this tv?

No, I don't have the code, I'm asking for the code. I think I'll have to return the tv and never NEVER UPDATE Firmware again. Same happened to my Blu-ray Sony, that cannot play anymore some of my favourite movies after installing these stupid updates. Seems like this devices have bad programmed software.mad.gif

Is there a way to disable the "ce dimming" in Standard mode or allow Movie mode when Game Mode is enable?

I just can't play when Game Mode is off but I can't stand the dimming.

I tried the service menu but the picture_2d setting is disable in advance settings.

I have a 55ES6820 (almost the same as ES6500 except for dual core and other small differences) and I really like the PQ. For movies and TV I think it's great but I would like to be able to play games on it.


Do you think if I ask for a tech to come home he would be able to disable this "feature"?

@fkie try service mode and try and reset the tv that way.. You have to search for the button combination on this topic or outside of it..

As far as ce dimming goes I was not able to shut it off in SM.. It is not listed as that..

Hi All,

I'm new to the forum here and hoping that someone can help me out. I just recently bought a Samsung UN60ES6500 tv from Best Buy, and have some very strange display things going on. Very frequently there is a "green tinge" on people on the skin. It usually shows up around the outline of their bodies and, oddly enough, becomes very noticeable in their hair. It becomes even more prominent during fast moving scenes.

I have tried calibration settings from CNET, but continue to have the same issue. Any idea on what this might be, and how to fix it? When dropping this much money on a big screen TV, its pretty frustrating to see it come out with display issues like this.

I look forward to any advice anyone might have. Thanks!!

I'm not really sure the CNET settings are that good. I put them in, and found everything quite WASHED OUT and DIM, and lots of loss of color. Now, I don't like saturation and high contrast of high brightness, but I do like something that doesn't look like an instagram filter.

Does it happen in other picture modes such as Standard or Natural? I agree with tvioboy, the Cnet settings are not that good.. Try experimenting..

I have the EXACT same problem on two 60ES6500 sets. I have a service tech coming to my house tomorrow to check out my 2nd set (1st one was returned).

Guy's, does this happen on SD or on HD programming and movies too or both? Do you have all of the extra's turned off?
post #222 of 580
maybe thats just a problem with the 60 inch versions?

Thanks for the tip, but I don't think I can roll back the firmware updade that way, I'll try that once the tech has come to my house. I went to the store and I realized that my set looks like cr@p, even a computer monitor looks better. Seems like all firmware updates just worsens these devices. So if you're thinking in updating your firmware tv, DON'T DO IT!.

It is most notable on movies, both HD movies through my cable and also on Blu-Ray. It really shows on dark scenes with people or objects in motion. Yes it may very well be an issue exclusive to the 60" models?!

As i posted earlier in this thread, i have the problem as well. On factory settings, cnet settings and lcdbuyingguide settings the green shimmering/halo appears. Any update from the service tech you had in?

Does the latest firmware (ver.1020.1) on this set contains cinavia?

I've UN40ES6580 with firmware 1006.6, the only issue is with the colours, everything else seems fine. Basically if there's a reason to update...
post #231 of 580
Just ordered a 32 inch version of the 6500. Was this a mistake? Comments in this thread are not too complimentary.

I don't think it was a mistake at all. I have a 55" 6820, which is essentially a 6500 with dual core and I think the PQ is fantastic. The only thing I really hate is the auto-dimming. It's off while in movie mode but when playing games movie mode has input lag. Putting the TV in game mode remove the lag but then you can't choose movie mode and auto-dimming is on.

Another bad tv, this one is going back too. All I can say is stay away from the 60" version of this tv. Awful.

To "luvdalude" & "bauersox" & anyone else with the green halo problem!! PLEASE READ THIS!!
I bought the Samsung UN60ES6500 series around the end of August and it had the same problem, green "halos" around dark clothes, dark hair, almost all dark objects, and a tv movie made it even worse. i only had these problems in 720P and 1080P, never in 480P standard definition. I consider myself pretty good with technology and should have known to return it right there. However, I assumed the colour's were off and since I had bought a calibration from the store i bought the tv, i figured i'd wait and the calibration would fix it. the calibration did not fix the problem and i had gone past the 30 return policy, so after jumping through numerous hoops in calling future shop (where i bought the tv) 3 times, and calling samsung canada 3 times, i finally got to speak with a local tv repair business and he had a tech come out a few days later. the tech replaced the two boards in the back of the tv and it made no differnece. he said the next step would be to replace the glass panel. i told him i wanted to go back and talk to future shop to just get a new tv, luckily they did give me a new tv, even though it had been 2 months since i bought it. i set up the new tv and even put all the settings back to the 1st set's calibarted settings, ( i recorded them before taking the 1st set bck to the store). i got the green halo problem again. i stumbled upon this very forum monday oct. 1st and found a few ppl had posted there settings, i went home intending to try them and got distraced by watching tv instead. i decided to try watching some shows in 3D, converted from 2D. i then noticed that in a certain scene that i knew should have the green halo effect, there was no green halo when i watched it in 3D!!! i tested that theory on multiple channels and on a few tv movies, which is usually the worst for the halo. i checked and recorded the settings that were in the 3D mode, and changed the 2D mode to match, and the green halo was then gone in 2D mode!! the settings were a little bright for me but i reduced the brightness and contrast a little bit and the green halo stayed away.
the 3D settings are the factory out-of-the-box settings and it was set to standard mode, not movie. in the next few days im going to try to pinpoint which setting(s) is causing the green halo.
i have another calibration for this new set scheduled for oct. 22, by then i hope to have figured out which setting is causing the green halo so i can have the calibration done, and then fix the green halo myself, again.
no one at future shop had heard of this problem before, i have now informed them of how i fixed it for my own tv.
i am also going to let the tech know who replaced my boards in the first tv how to fix this problem.
i think i am even going to let samsung canada know to.
sorry i made this so long, but i wanted to make sure everyone knew my whole proccess of what happened and how i fixed it. this worked for me, hopefully it will work for you!
if anyone has any questions, let me know and hopefully i can help you out.
post #237 of 580
Very interesting. Thank you for sharing! Frankly it is not an acceptable fix to have to use a very specific set of settings to eliminate the green halo. Especially since those settings may not be the best picture quality for the tv. I'd rather just go out and get a different tv myself.
post #238 of 580
To add to my post - If you can pin point that it is just 1 setting that is causing this problem and we can adjust a single setting then maybe that isn't so bad. I have spent hours playing with my settings with no help.... Let me know if you figure anything out.

Thanks.
post #239 of 580
Guys, what do u have BACKLIGHT set to in 3D Mode? and do u have BLACK Tone and DYNAMIC Contrast enabled in 3D Mode?

also, which colorspace do u think is better , AUTO or NATIVE?
post #240 of 580
Well I'm done with this tv. Decided to go with a Panasonic 60ST50 plasma instead of try a third Samsung. Also 400 cheaper! Good luck to you guys with the green halo/fuzz problem on the 60" models.
