Take a look at this thread regarding auto dimming.
http://www.avsforum.com/t/1489516/how-disable-screen-dimming

I have a UN46ES6150, the club version on the 6100. As mentioned in message #5 in the above thread, I never noticed any auto dimming until I paused some credits at the end of a movie. Actually the white text got brighter when the white status bar from the DVR got displayed. But it happens instantaneously for all practical purposes. IOW I've never seen any actually fading in/out.

Those who notice auto dimming can you actually see the fading in & out? Or is it just pretty much obvious that a scene has drastically changed?

On my tv, I forget either watching cable broadcast or from a video source, I noticed the "auto dimming" in effect. I remembered the screen would fade in and out while watching, it was very obvious and it was very annoying. Then I read from this site forum about changing the picture setting away from the "standard" setting because of the "auto dimming" issues people were experiencing. This is how I learned about this.

Thanks for the reply, I had presumed the auto dimming was obvious otherwise there would not be so many complaints. Thanks for confirming it.

I never noticed any fluctuation, that is after I turned off some of the auto functions. I thought maybe the 6150 Sam's Club version left out this "feature".

As my comment in the above thread mentions the screen brightness changes instantly when the somewhat large white DVR status bar appears & disappears. So I'm not sure if the 6150 series has or uses the same auto dimming as other models.

I've been adjusting the Movie mode settings and they don't give the same results as the Standard mode. IOW color 45 in Movie is similar to color 35 in Standard. And I have to use a higher backlight setting in Movie to get the same results as I get in Standard. But I've got the 2 modes matching each other pretty closely & either one looks pretty good to me.

It's good to hear you have the settings squared away. wink.gif

Hi - just picked up a un55es6100fxza and did a firmware update via network (I now have software version t-mst10pausc-1034.2)

When I go "Contact Samsung" it lists my model as a: un55es6500 (and has a different serial number)!

Why is this?

Thanks!
Keith

I think I must have purchased a Frankenstein TV. I think it's a 6100 with a 6500 circuit board. The Picture Menu has a 3D option - would 3D even work on this TV?
post #787 of 852
Can't wait for another firmware update, not digging version 1034.
post #788 of 852

Hi folks, 

 

Newbie question: I recently purchased this TV. When I select my HDMI input (where I'm running my DirecTV) the info box in the upper left corner always displays "1280x720/60p" - I know the TV supports 1080p, and I have that resolution selected in my cable box (being fed in through that HDMI 2 port) - so how do I select 1080p on the TV? 

 

Thanks for any help.

 

EDIT: Disregard, answered my own question. All I had to do was turn the TV off and back on after selecting the correct resolution on the DirecTV box.

So is anyone else experiencing white dead pixels on this set? I know I am probably concentrating on them to much but is it normal to happen with this kid of tv? I have had this tv for about 9 months now.

I have had the set for about a year now and ended up with some stuck pixels (stuck on red) about a couple months ago. From some research I did, I used a very soft point stylus and lightly pressed on the stuck pixels a few times and they eventually went away. They haven't came back since, nor have I gotten any new ones. *knocks on wood*

New firmware 001037 is out.
post #792 of 852
Got it, I played a youtube video and by minute 25 when I had to leave it was still playing smoothly. I'll have to do a few more tests later...
post #793 of 852
So how is the new firmware 001037? What does it improve? Does it erase current settings on the t.v.? Should I download or not?
post #794 of 852
New firmware was a slight improvement in tv motion, but improvement from 0034. It's still glitchy, but not as bad now. I still think 0031 had the smoothest performance.

The strange thing that happens on my tv, is that if I try to go into software update, even when there is no new software, when I exit, the AMP smoothes out. After I turn off the tv off and on again, the smoothness is gone, and I have to redo the software update just to get the AMP to work right.

Anyone else having problems with Netflix AFTER installing the new firmware?
post #796 of 852
I use my PS3 or Apple TV. PS3 finally offers Super HD with my AtT Uverse.
post #797 of 852
I just updated mines to 001037 firmware. I noticed the motion of the screen seems to run "faster" and smoother.

When installing new firmware does it delete all current settings?
post #799 of 852
Can you ever go back to the old firmware?
post #800 of 852
No it doesn't delete old settings.

BTW
I now am pretty sure that the youtube issues were solved by v37, which is awesome and solves pretty much the only real issue I had with my TV.

So this firmware update corrects the youtube problem. What about Netflix issue where the sound goes in and out sometimes through playback?
post #802 of 852
Well actually the youtube thing happened again a while ago on a particular video after like 20 mins, but many others are fine.... so who knows if it's really fixed or not...

The netflix thing I've never had it. Does it happen through the TVs speakers or external receiver?
post #803 of 852
The Netflix app it happens with internal speakers and then same thigh with external ones as well.
post #804 of 852
Nope, never had that myself and I'm a pretty heavy netflix user.

What TV is firmware 001037 version for? I have the UN40ES6100F and when I check the Samsung support, it only has firmware 1034.2 version.
post #806 of 852
The web site is sometimes behind.
If your TV is connected to the internet, go into the menu and say you want to update the firmware, it will tell you what the latest release is for your particular TV.
post #807 of 852
Hmm i Have a Un60ES6100 and I dont see a new version just 34.... I have a flashlight effect on my TV when TV is dark I see 4 bright spots... When opened a ticket they told me I need to upgrade firmware as it got fixed in 11xx something version. I went to check on my TV and I have 1034.2 and no upgrades available.
post #808 of 852
FW update will not solve flashlighting at all, unless it tweaks backlight levels down (or increases auto dim sensitivity) which you can do yourself right now. smile.gif

Another thing you can try if your issue is too extreme is to loosen the chassis screws a bit and see if it helps. I've found that big panels after being moved or perhaps with age seem to change enough that the little pressure from the chassis increases flashlighting.

Luck, and keep common sense close if you are going to mess with your big screen.

This is what this guy from samsung support told me on the phone. He specifically said that this issue(which I told them is 4 bright spots on the screen during dark scenes) is fixed with firmware 11xx and they wont do anything until I update he even mentioned that it can take a week or so to show up. I attached an image of what I have. I think thats a spotlight issue, but could be wrong. I bought this unit a year ago, but only installed it about a month ago, so it was never used, I do have it hanging on the wall now, so maybe we tighten the screwes for the mounting brackets too hard ? Or do you mean the actual panel screwes that hold the back cover ?

Thanks !


post #810 of 852
You could always download the FW from the site to a USB stick and install it from there. Yes, I meant the panel screws, sadly the screens are very sensitive to tension and with the super slim TV fad that is going on I wouldn't be surprised if just wall mounting it could change tension inside enough that flash lighting would be increased.

BTW I am coming from my screen doing the same thing after I moved, it got better after I loosened the panel screws a bit but mine isn't wall mounted so who knows.
