post #691 of 856
Hello all-
I just purchased the 40es6100 last night and loce the way the TV looks aesthetic wise casing and bezel etc... However I am having some serious trouble with the picture for some reason. To me the colors on this tube just seems washed out and off, I also have a 63d8000 plasma that is absolutely perfect in terms of color and picture and perhaps having both is raising the bar for me in regards to this sets picture. No matter how I adjust the settings I cant seem to get that true vibrant and contrasty picture that I am looking for. It seems really washed out again and the colors seem hued in a way that just looks off. My 6 year old 32 inch LCD samsung 720p seems as if it has truer colors then this TV. Am I missing something here or is this the nature of edge lit LEDs? Debating returning it for something else. Any help is greatly appreciated, Thanks!

Does all of your picture settings stay the same after the firmware update?
post #693 of 856
Hey everyone,

This is a great thread with a lot of information that helped me set my TV up. I recently purchased the UN40ES6100 model however now it seems there is a newer version of it that has just come out.

The UN40F6300 was just released and I'm trying to find info on whether or not this new TV is worth the extra $250 to return and upgrade to.

Does anyone know if the panel is new or different in any way for this model?

Thanks.

Still no one has told me if by me downloading the latest firmware if all of my picture settings will be erased or not?
post #695 of 856
I can tell you that it didn't erase mine.
post #696 of 856
Cool I just updated my firmware and my picture settings stayed the same as well. I noticed big improvement in the AMP processing now. Not as many glitches in picture quality when turned on.
post #697 of 856
After researching LCD's TV's I've narrow my search to the 46ES6100 or the 50ES6100. I can't get the 50ES for $50 more. Does anyone here game with the 50ES6100? I know the 46ES6100 has a good input lag score in Display Lag.com.

Thanks.

Okay I am getting this annoying pop up screen that has been coming up every 4-5 minutes saying error_model_bind saying to check my network settings. I did that and my wifi is perfectly fine. Anyway to get this to go away? Is it maybe just a problem with my tv?
post #699 of 856
Hey djrmc24,

It's not just you, I've had that popping up recently as well. Can't remember exactly when it started but it happened a number of times yesterday. Checked my wired network settings and all tested fine. Maybe there was a firmware update that did something? Haven't had a whole lot of time to investigate.

Also, has anyone noticed that when you are in the smarthub, you cannot change aspect ratio or picture mode without using the menu? Is there anyway around this? I would like to just use the "aspect" or "Picture Mode" commands on the universal remote rather than pick through a menu system.

Samsung Smart TV screen display jittery stuttering hiccup problems.

I have the Samsung Smart TV 55" UN55ES6100FXZA. From day one of setting it up and watching hi-def cable broadcasts, the tv screen experienced jittery problems.

After reading as much blogs and reviews to find the "answers" and tried all suggestion and settings for the "film modes" and "auto motion plus", they do work some, but none worked well enough to my satisfaction.

I remember when watching cable programs on this tv, every now and then I would see a message on the upper right of the screen that says it is "updating", so I'm thinking I do not want to see this, how do I disable it. I found there is no "option" to disable the wi-fi in the menus (I may be mistaken but I have not found this option yet). To make the story short, after disabling the wi-fi, the tv all of a sudden is fast and smooth and responsive!

I have read in another avsforum blog to turn off "SyncPlus" to make the screen run smoother. I did try it and seems to work well. But I still think disabling the wi-fi maybe even better.

For anyone that are experiencing jittery screen display on their Samsung Smart TV, can give these solutions a try.

How to turn off SyncPlus:
Smarthub -> SyncPlus -> Tools-> Samsung SyncPlus Service: Off

How to disable Wi-fi:
Menu -> Network Setting -> (scroll down to bottom of menu) Add Network -> Next -> (here type anything you want ie: 123 or xyz) -> Next -> (select) Open -> Next -> OK

After I "disabled" the Wi-fi on my tv, below are my "current" settings.

Screen: 16:9

Picture: Movie (why not standard? because in standard the tv picture fades in and out due to some sensor and its very annoying)
Backlight: 15 (can adjust this up or down to preference)
Contrast: 85
Brightness: 50
Sharpness: 50 (I like images that are crisp and sharp)
Color: 50
G50/R50

Advanced Settings -
Dynamic: Off
Black Tone: Off
Flesh Tone: 0
RGB Only Mode: Off
Color Space: Native (I'm not sure what the advantage is if set to "auto")
White Balance: (default)
10p White Balance: Off
Gamma: 0
Expert Pattern: Off
xvYCC: Off
Motion Lighting: Off

Picture Options -
Color Tone: Standard
Digital: Off
Mpeg: Off
Film Mode: Off
Auto Motion Plus: Off
Led Motion Plus: Off

System -
Eco Solution: Off
General:
Game Mode: Off
BD Wide: Off
Menu Transparency: High
Sound Feedback: Off
Panel Lock: Off
Boot Logo: Off
Anynet+ (HDMI-CEC): Off

Sound -
Sound Mode: Standard
Sound Effect:
SRS TruSurround HD: On
SRS TruDialog: Off
Equalizers: (default)

======================

Update: May 29, 2013 (Regarding new firmware 001031)
Please read post #728 for my experience with this new update.

EDIT: (Aug. 16, 2013) Please read my new post #763 regarding new firmware 001043.

I just returned this set because like you I never could get this tv to display a bright picture without a bluish tinge ...I had this set six weeks and tried to tweak it for the entire time...the Smart Hub Neflix displayed a dark murky picture ...I had every auto dim feature turned off...I have a bright bedroom where this tv was located and watching tv in the early afternoon was a challenge.because of the reflective surface..finally I came to my senses and moved on to an LG 42CS570... I am thrilled....whites are white because I am no longer in LED land...I bought a Sony blue ray player and my Netflix is beautiful....I gave it my best shot...the Samsung 40ES6100 was calibrated by the geek squad they could not make whites white...the last straw was the white areas on either side of the picture that you could see in dark scenes because I had the Backlight and bright turned up to get a decent picture...the LG has a great picture...I spent very little time tweaking to get a crystal clear picture...and the best thing of all I am just watching tv not looking for flaws....something I did with the Samsung....

See 2 posts above. I just tried those settings plus I use some color settings found very early in this thread.

To show your better half the difference between SD and HD, try going to a SD channel (that also has a corresponding HD channel). For example - 'The History Channel' or if you're in an area like me. our local channels also have a corresponding HD channel. Press the 'C' button at the bottom of your Verizon remote. This will take you to the HD version of the SD channel. Then use the 'last' button on the remote to go back and forth between the 2 channels. You should see a difference.

Plus I personally think HD is a little over rated and a rent a lot of movies via Verizon and VuDu. Unless the movie is heavily action packed, I save a dollar and just rent the SD verison.

Does anyone know the discrete IR codes for this TV? Samsung tech support is of no help.

What remote do you have?

My local Coscto is clearing out this model for a real low price. Curious how well it would do for Xbox 360 gaming for input lag and do good Blu Ray playback

20130407110813.jpg
post #710 of 856
A couple weeks ago my local Costco had the same set (UN55ES6150) for $999.99 and the UN50ES6150 for $899.99. They sold out of both & so far have not got anymore of the 55" sets in stock. They got more 50" sets in & then ran out of those.

I'm not sure how often they update or change the dates of their instant rebates. Last month the rebates ended 3-30-2013. But last week the rebate expiration date on the 50" was 4-6-2013.

I bought this Model back in beginning of December for $1,199.00.
post #712 of 856
Was just at Costco & the 50" UN50ES6150 was now $999.97 and no mention of any instant rebate.
They still did not have the 55" UN55ES6150.
post #713 of 856
Anyone else tried to disable the Wifi to see if the panel runs better? Don't see how having Wifi slows the picture smoothness for TV watching.
post #714 of 856
I bough my 60" during Black Friday for 1299.99. I almost went with the 7100 55" for 1599.99.
post #715 of 856
Anybody know the difference between this and the UNxxF6300?

Similar calibration settings?
post #716 of 856
The F6300 is a newer model. Calibration settings will be different. Professional setting will differ from panel to panel regardless of same model.
post #717 of 856
I recently (last week) purchased a new UN40EH5300 Smart TV for $500, then a couple days later I noticed that Sams club had the UN40ES6150 open box( returned) for the same price.

Although the differences are that its slimmer, edge lit vs backlit, X stand, has more customizability. Is it worth getting the open box ES6150 Vs the brand new EH5300

They both have the 1 year warranty from samsung.

Currently i have both tv's sitting at home, I havent played around with the tv settings for calibration yet. As far as I know, i dont recall seeing any cloudiness, I dont remember looking for it either..

Any thoughts would be great!

I posted a reply to this but it seems to have vanished.

I meant which programmable remote are you trying to set up with the discrete codes. (Harmony, Pronto etc)
post #719 of 856
I got a UN50ES6150 from Costco a few weeks ago. I waited a while to see what the new 2013 models looked liked like before opening the box. I happen to like matte screens & bezels & saw a new F6300 & did not like the shiny bezel. So I finally open the box & connected the 6150.

I'm coming from a Sony LCD RPTV with a nice matte screen & bezel & no perceptible motion blur. The Samsung was on my short list because it appeared to be about as matte as anything out there. Only Sharp seems less glossy. Side by side the Samsung is almost like a piece of glass compared to the Sony. Glare & reflection is a main concern because of the layout of my family room & kitchen & light always seems to be on the TV. I'm going to try to gently tilt the 6150 in an effort to reduce glare.

Other than reflections the Samsung seems OK for one days worth of use & tweaking. Is there a comprehensive user manual that explains exactly what every setting does?
post #720 of 856
I've had my 60ES1000 for maybe six months now, and it's worked nicely with a BR player and Comcast (yuck) DVR.. No issues at all (outside of some "smart" TV issues, but that's another subject..)

We moved to another house and I was able to get DirecTV back (woohoo!) with the new Genie DVR. However, Tuesday night and last night we were watching different shows from different channels and during the show the screen would go black for a second or two at a time. I thought it might be a signal issue from my dish or from the networks, but that's not it because the recordings are fine in another room and when I rewind them on the Genie. I checked my HDMI connection and tried 3 cables across 2 different inputs on the TV.

Basically, it seems like I'm losing the HDMI signal from the Genie (DTV issue) or for some reason the TV doesn't like what it's getting from the Genie. I can check it with another TV, but I was wanting to see if anyone else had this problem and there was a 'duh' fix that I could try.
