Ok nvm found out how to upgrade my firmware
post #752 of 853
Hmmm haven't noticed, I'll try to find a sample 1080i source to test it out.

Any reason why this tv's colors look washed out? The whole display compared to my 2007 sony kdl40v2500 looked washed out.

The sony is a lot darker, and the colors pop a lot more. Maybe the Samsung is showing accurate colors and i'm just not used to it? Maybe I just like over saturated colors. I did notice that the Samsung shows a lot more detail in dark areas.

Rich, if you have your tv calibrated by geek squad, they like to use movie mode for calibration. If this is the case, the picture will have no pop. Standard mode, I used Disney Wow. I can share my settings as I find them optimal for me. Not all tvs will have the same results. Nonetheless, this tv has plenty of pop and rich color, calibrated well, no washed out colors.

I have the UN46ES6150, the Sam's Club version. Here's what I ended up with using the AVS709 test patterns.

My set did exhibit some pink coloration when looking at the test patterns if the white level was too high. According to this link some sets do this. Turning the Contrast down to 75 seemed to fix that.

I used Standard Mode and Warm1 because Warm2 looked too warm for my preference.
Brightness at the default 45 seemed correct as did the default 50/50 Tint.
I set the Color at 35 using the RGB > Blue & one of the color test patterns.

I did the 2 point white balance using a 20% gray screen to adjust the R/G/B Offsets and an 80% gray screen to adjust the R/G/B/ Gains. This was done by eye while trying to get the gray test images to look gray. I ended up with:
R-Offset = 22, G-Offset = 20, B-Offset = 25
R-Gain = 15, G-Gain = 25, B-Gain = 25

I think initially the Backlight was at 12 but I’ve varied this & usually somewhere between 8 and 12 works for me. I’m pretty much satisfied the way this worked out & skin tones seem good.

Ok, a little off the main topic, but has anyone noticed or questioned why is it that the HD Commercials look better than the movie or show content that is playing (on the same channel)? The only thing that seems to come close to Commercial HD quality is live content. Why is that? Or am I crazy to even think this?
post #757 of 853
That is a definite.....on all tv's! Just like the volume spikes when its a commercial. The food shown on those commercials have the very best visuals i've ever seen on screen. Go figure....that is by design....to pop out and get noticed!

What is this white spot on my screen?

I apologize for not getting a clearer photo. The white spot is on the 231 column, toward the bottom. It is visible on bright backgrounds. On a white background it is brighter than everything else. It seems like one of the LED backlights is pressing against the screen fro the back. Is there any fix for this?

Anyone?

I have read in the past about 'massaging lcd screens' - use a damp cloth (preferably micro-fiber) and rub the area with a little pressure. Google this procedure.
post #761 of 853
I got close to my screen while it was on a bright white background and notice on bottom left corner of screen seeing about 3-4 little white bright dots? Only on bright scenes. From a distance they are hard to tell unless you already know they are there but if you are close to screen you can see them? Are these dead pixels and should I worry about this?
post #762 of 853
I have the exact same problem on the screen. There are 2-4 on the bottom (pretty much exact same spot as yours). As well as some very bright (and annoying ones) in the top corners. I've somewhat gotten used to them, but they still bother me. It's my dad's TV and they don't bother him and so that is why it was never replaced or anything.
post #763 of 853
(Please refer to my earlier posts #701 & #728)

Thanks Hectorcaliente for keeping us informed on the updates!

I'm "Johnny come lately" on this, but I just updated both of my tv's (UN55ES6100 & UN46ES6100) with the latest firmware 001034, and my experience with both tv's while watching cable broadcasts has been very positive. I noticed the overall picture quality and smoothness of motion has been nicely improved. Even the tv show Nightmare Kitchen is much more watchable because it is much smoother in picture quality, but now noticed have some ghosting.

Below are my "new" setting changes on both tv's that seems to work well with this new update. Please note that after "all" the updates has been made, I still have the "wifi" and "smarthub" disabled (please refer to post #701).

Picture Settings -
Backlight: 09 or 10 (I prefer 09)
Contrast: 75

Advanced Settings -
Dynamic Contrast: Off
Color Space: Native

Picture Options -
Digital Noise Filter: Off
MPEG Noise Filter: Off
Auto Motion Plis: Off (for those whom enjoys this mode, I noticed "Clear", "Standard", "Smooth" all works very well.)

Was there an Owners manual shipped with this thing? I cannot find it for the life of me. The one of the Samsung site is not very helpful.

Thanks
post #765 of 853
Yes, mines came with "owners" manuals. It contains information on how to unpack and put together the television, goes over the features and functions of the remote and television. BUT it does not tell in depth what are the best settings and things useful like that. This is why I am extremely thankful for websites like this to provide us the information that really matters.

So what does it mean? Dead pixels? How come on darker scenes they go away?

I agree. I've never seen such a poor manual. And contacting Samsung via email on their website is just as bad. I had to ask them a question 3 times in order to get a somewhat relevant answer.

I've looked on Samsung's website at what I thought might be other similar model's owner manuals in order to find answers & sometimes this has helped.

I just want to see where all of the ports are on the back etc. Sounds like I have to unmount it to figure it out. lol

Do you know the model number of your television?
post #770 of 853
Here's the somewhat useless 675 page online manual.
http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/201209/20120910094456985/%5BENG_US%5DWEB-XTATSCE-1015-0907.pdf

This is for some of the newer models such as the F6300 series & is a lot nicer.
http://downloadcenter.samsung.com/content/UM/201308/20130813132610569/%5BENG_US%5DX12ATSCF-1.119.pdf

Here's another owners manual for an ES6100. $9.00 for an electronic version and $35.00 for a printed version. I wonder if it's any different than the crappy 675 page online manual.

I wouldn't pay 9 dollars for the TV manual when the Samsung site offers the same one that came with the tv for free.

Go to the website below to view images of the ports on the back of a UN55ES6100, you will need to scroll down the page to view the pictures.

Thanks. Since the speakers suck I was trying to figure out if there was audio out so I can route it to my AVR.

No worries. I'm in the market to look for a small but good sounding soundbar myself.

i bought the 46 inch 2 months ago.

im debating about returning it.

First i have some area that are more bright (clouding).
I cant stop the auto dimming. I mean i tried almost all the settings and when the scene is dark , the screen lighting goes dark.
Once my girlfriend turned off the cable box , and tought she turned off the TV as well. The tv was on , but kept flashing like it was looking for a signal. The TV always does that even tho i have the option to turn it off auto. So that time she forgot to turn it off... the TV flashed for 6 hours since we were out of the house.
post #778 of 853
Have you turned off the usual suspects: Dynamic Contrast & Eco Sensor.

Regarding your auto dimming issue, in my post #701, I wrote about my picture setting..

"Picture: Movie (why not standard? because in standard the tv picture fades in and out due to some sensor and its very annoying)"

..hope this helps your situation.
