Seems odd that based on the content source the flashlighting is either present or not.

Note that the TV configuration settings are independent for each input. So if you like the settings when watching Blu-Ray, copy down those settings and enter them in for the other inputs.

Does anyone with the 60" model have a problem with the TV leaning backward on the stand? I'm not a big fan of the stand, and it seems like either the legs or the joint where it attaches to the TV are too weak to properly support the TV and it leans backward at a 1 or 2 degree angle.
post #423 of 856
I wouldn't be concerned about a 1-2 degrees tilt or the legs not being strong enough, I am pretty sure they can support the TV, one thing that worried me slightly when I put the base together is how easy it is to insert it wrong into the TV, actually there is a big warning against that in the manual. Of course if you set it wrong it would be very obvious, the bad part is there is a big chance that it might be too late by the time you realized 3 seconds later...

So as soon as the legs were inserted properly and screws in the base are tight it should be all right.

Also, although it might not help against the TV falling backwards you can always run the security cable that came with it from the back of the TV to the nearest wall for stability. If the TV really was unstable towards the back and was pushed forward a bit it might bounce back enough to fall.


But anyway, I really don't think you should be concerned, you might want to place it on the floor and ask a friend to help you do very gentle balance tests for your peace of mind. Just take into account that the slight tilt you are worried about might actually be there intentionally to help center the TV's center of gravity on the base. Or you could get a back-mount TV stand.

Hey Guys, I have the UN60ES6100 on order right now from Best Buy, but recently saw the UN55ES7100 on sale for 200 dollars more. I've been reading a lot of negative comments about the 6100ES on this forum to the point that I may end up with buyers remorse. Should I cancel my order of the 6100 and go with the 7100? Is there a difference in Picture Quality that you can see? I'd be sacrificing 5 inches of viewing space. Honestly, I don't care about 3D on the tv. I just want best TV quality in the 1500 dollar range at max Size.
I just want to make sure I made the right choice of television for the money.

Yeah I was trying to make a joke, but maybe my humor was lost in my frustration. Extremely disappointed with this set, and it will be going back tomorrow.

My parents just bought the 55 inch version. I've spent 2 days adjusting the picture and I still don't like it.I tried many of the specs on here. Action scenes especially during sporting events look blurry to me. The screen looks pretty cloudy to me regardless of what we watch. My parents and brother have bad eye sight so they don't really notice it, mine is perfect and I can hardly stand it.. I was hoping this was a nice hdtv and I'd pick up a smaller version for my bedroom. I currently own a plasma and it's much crisper and blacks are nicer. I'm wondering if these issues are normal or could something be wrong with the tv or connection. this is my first experience with LED or LCD large screen HDs.

They seem to want to stick with LCD/LED since they are concerned with the energy use and have a lot of windows they like to leave open.

They are using DTV and we bought an hdmi cord at BB to hook it up. Is it possible a poor hdmi could be causing these issues or is this just the way it is. After seeing this I might just stick with plasma until the LEDs improve. Even at 12-15 feet I could see the bluriness during sports.

I just got my 55 6100 last night and love it. I don't have the flashlight problem or clouding issues that people have mention. Spent a while tweaking the settings and am pleased with the picture. I replaced a 4 year old 46" Samsung LCD that I loved. But wanted to go bigger. Nothing looks blurry, not even sports. Watched some football and basketball, and no ball or player blurs or jitters.

I gotta assume many people don't have their settings tweaked correctly. That, or their cable/ satellite signal is compressed severely.

When you power on the panel, you will get the SMART TV logo, once the logo disappears, pay attention to the empty picture, you will see the flashlighting. It is very prevelant. I thought the same thing but you need to start looking for it.

viewing wise, I only see it on dark letter boxed movies that are streamed (not BluRay or DirecTv) so I may be able to live with mine. Still up in the air.

it is my understanding that pretty much any LED lit panel has this regardless of vendor unless you buy into the 2000.00 plus panels that have the LED Arrays. Its just a question of who has it the least.

This is not a panel issue, it is your local TV station. I live in Portland OR, my ABC affiliate broadcasts a poor HD signal (even over Rabbit ears) as compared to the NBC or Fox affiliate.
When it comes to sports, you are at the mercy of the stations. Sunday Night Football on NBC looks amazing. USC v. Notre Dame this past Saturday, borderline garbage.
Fox NFL. Thumbs up. TNT Basketball. Two Thumbs Up.

All I know is when I watch a BluRay via my PS3, the picture is pretty damn nice as is most things but these panels have a bad flashlighting problem.
post #433 of 856
hi guys
I bought the un40es6100, the first thing I notice is that everything look bluish
I have try different calibrations found here and some other sites, but still the same.
Black bars in movies look bluish, not dark. Even when you change channel, when flashes, it looks blue and not black
Even the dark knight, What could it be ??

I have looked, and if there is any flashlighting, I don't see it. My older, 650 Series Samsung has it a little, so I know what to look for. Maybe I got the only set that doesn't have that problem. Guess maybe I got lucky. Very happy so far.

I even set the picture color to 0.. and is blue and white.. look ..



Does it means my tv is defective .. mad.gif
post #436 of 856
Hello,

I am having an issue with my TV not recognizing my PC via an HDMI cable. I connected a gaming console via HDMI and it recognizes it fine, so it isn't the port itself. The cable works fine with my older TV as well. From speaking with a few different people, the issue seems to be HDMI transmitting at 60hz where the TV is 120hz. I have tried going under "Source" and renaming the HDMI port that I have it plugged in to as "PC", but the TV still isn't recognizing the connection. I've tried renaming and using the three different HDMI ports to no avail.

The PC sees that the TV is there, and it's definitely sending the signal, but the TV doesn't seem to want any part of it. http://i.imgur.com/7uYkk.png for reference. Is there another way to change the refresh rate on the TV other than the little edit name box? Could it be another issue entirely?

Appreciate any assistance!

One problem I am having is with the quality of NetFlix through wifi. Since a hard line can't happen, I am streaming through my router. The TV is at 4 bars, so signal strength seems fine. The picture quality is fairly mediocre, at best. It's the 55" model,so that may soften it a little. I was expecting HD quality, but it looks more like DVD quality, at best. Tried several movies and TV shows with the (HD) logo.

I testing my download speed through my Ipad, holding it where the TV is. Said it was about 11.5 Mbps, which should be plenty fast.

So is my problem:
1 - The TV itself. It just doesn't play HD NetFlix well. Maybe get a new Blu-ray player with Wifi NetFlix built in and try that.
2 - I need a beefier router. Seems to put out a strong signal, but who knows.

I do know that the movies play great on my Ipad, very crisp and clear, making me think the TV just won't display NetFlix movies very well.

Any suggestions?

Try streaming a high bitrate 1080p movie over DLNA to check how your router is handling the bandwidth.

You could also compare netflix against the PC client to see if the quality is also low.



The only issue I've had (low quality, frame drops) with netflix programs happens with planet earth.
post #439 of 856
Noob question: How do I stream over DLNA? I don't even know what that is. Lol

Check the samsung allshare section of the TV's user guide.

So today I decided to go to Best Buy and then HHGregg to settle a few things about this TV. I was really getting upset that the ES6100
is a semi matte screen(clear) vs ultra clear, and then even more so when reading review about how the viewing angles were horrible, and the color was not as vibrant nor contrasting.


Ok seriously, I am as about anal about televisions as one can get. I currently have the UN46B6000 that is a 120hz w/ ultra clear screen.

At HHGreg, they had the 6100 next to the 7100....a 400 dollar difference between the 2 plus 60" (6100 @ $1700) vs 55" (7100 @ $2100)

I got the 60" 6100 from Best Buy online during black friday for 1399.99 and was about to trade that in for the 55" 7100 that was for sale at 1599.99. Those sales are gone and the TVs went back up again.

My First observation: the Motion blur/smoothness/etc - HHGregg had ESPN on all the channels, I payed close attention to the bottom messages as they panned to the left. The pan smootness difference was extremely slight...I had to concentrate on each TV to compare.
I eventually got tired and went to compare the next thing.

Second observation: Clarity. Both sets are clear. the 7100....a very slight edge...and I mean a very sligh. Once again. I had to pay close attention to notice.

Third: Color - the Color seemed a little bit brighter on the 7100, but that was due to the glossy screen. The difference was very negligable.

HHgreg allowed me to mess with the settings, so I had both settings at pretty much equal. Once I had both calibrated to my likings, the overall quality increase from the 6100 to the 7100 was about 10-15%...at most.

Now what I was able to compare the two, the trade off was now worth it. I am actually happy I stuck out with the 6100 @ 60". I think
I ended up with an extremely good deal.

The Glossy finish as it does help the color saturation, I get annoyed that I can see my shades and lamp from the reflection.

I really dont care about the 3D, and when I was looking for a set, I wanted the best 2D television set I can get. Honestly, from what was in the Best Buy and HHGregg, the 6100es is the best NON 3D you will find.

That Semi Gloss (semi matte) still looks really good and does not kill the vibrancy that some rater will claim.

What was funny, that 720 CMR looked only 10 percent bettween than the 240 CMR.....at most.

I can't wait to have my TV delivered.

Cheers.

Guys another noob question,

I understand that even though this TV (UN40ES6100) is not advertised as a 3D display it indeed is capable of this.

My set did not come with any glasses, what kind of glasses should I buy? Passive or Active?

Would you recommend I get Samsung brand? Is there a more economical option?

Please let me know.

Thank you very much,


gtapias
post #443 of 856
Where did you get your tv? I know the non us 6100s did come as 3D. I would think you have to get the active style glasses. You know, the ones that take batteries.

I bought it outside of the US, however being a UN40 I was under the impression it was an American model.

When I get back home I'll take the full model number from the TV itself.

I'm looking to play the 3D SBS content from an external hard drive. Do you see any problem with that?
post #445 of 856
Does anyone know if any of the 3 HDMI ports support a HDMI cable with Ethernet or should I just purchase a regular HDMI? Thank you.
post #446 of 856
Firmware 1024.0 is now available at Samsung.com. I just bought the UN40ES6100F so far so good; still messing with the settings to "try to calibrate" I installed the updated firmware works great so far been 6 days now no flaws. wink.gif

Just checked and my model says to be a UN40ES6100FXZP

Anybody knows if this should be a 3D model? It says to have been manufactured in Mexico if that makes any difference.

I tried to play a SBS file and only showed it as two nearly identical images one on top of the other...

@Zasekamoz what model code does you tv have? Is it UN40ES6100FXZP?
post #449 of 856
Is there a way to delete unwanted channels?

I checked in the menus but couldn't find that function.

During my initial setup, it did a channel scan. Some stations broadcast the same thing on multiple channels and I don't want to flip past those every time.

Thanks.
post #450 of 856
From what I know, the 3D version are the UExxEs6100. I wonder if those actually came with the Ultra Clear panel.

I'm surprised your tv is 3D. Did yours also come as the Ultra Clear Panel?
