i'm getting a refund
but i'm wondering, has samsung said anything about this?
when i first turned on that TV, it asked me where i am from, and the only choices were balkan countries like bulgaria or serbia
also checked the panel type by pressing the combination on the remote, and i got a H panel

guess i'm not buying a TV at all, i'm tired of gambling

here's an example of the overdrive overshoot

****. REALLY!? I just want a 32" screen that's good for gaming. Are you sure there's no settings to help on that model?

Samsung and other manufacturers use different panels on their lower end models, some better than others. This may be due to production costs or even the demand of the product, this means you can buy the same tv model other people have and get a better, worse or same tv :-P. FOr instance, my EH5300 doesn't have ghosting problems, but the same model with a different panel may have. I suggest you to read about it (you can check this thread, people provided a lot of information about it here) before you buy a new tv :-).

But be aware, as I said, this is not a Samsung only problem :-)

Is there such a thing as a higher end 32"? The UN32F6300 that's like $600, maybe? Would I be looking at the same issue at 39/40"? Might be worth jamming a larger screen in here after all.

Check if someone reported something about that issue in its thread in the forums: Link here

Thank you, Woobieizer, for the link to a reputable dealer of the service manual, the photos, and the encouragement.  I will document the repair and post it to help those in a similar position in the future.

Thanks for the assistance found here!  The Wifi stopped working out of the warranty period in my UN46EH5300F TH02.   Replacing the wifi module(BN59-01148B) was quite simple.  Less than an hour fix, even with not having a service and repair manual.  Follow the link for pics in needed. http://imgur.com/a/BUUmc     found the module for 10$ at www.openboxesusa.com

Hey John, wanna try out my settings? I have the UN32EH4000 which is pretty similar to your model. After going through 3 exchanges, I realised I should just stick with it. I changed some settings around and it helped tremendously with ghosting/overdrive.

Hey guys, I have an EH324000 (The 720p 2012 model. Not the newer poorer EH324003FXZA 2013 model) and I don't seem to have any "overdrive" issues with mine.

At least in PC 4:4:4 mode
post #1960 of 2172

I recently bought the eh5300 model, and I am currently trying it out as a computer monitor. I tried looking through as many pages as i could of this thread, but did not see a similar question/issue.

 

I have my old monitor running side by side with the eh5300. They are both running at 1920x1080, 16:9, but the eh5300 appears to be lower resolution or something.

 

here are 2 examples from the same page on youtube:

 

my previous monitor: http://imgur.com/Is0uBui

 

the eh5300: http://imgur.com/1FOdQ6J

 

 

The monitor is probably 24 inch, the eh3200 is 32. I am not quite sure where there is so much more white space/room on the smaller monitor. I prefer it this way though, as it provides more viewing space on websites/screen space in general. The monitor i am using appears to display much wider than my tv screen. Is there some setting i am missing that could be causing this?

 

I am using a dvi to hdmi cable for the tv, could this be causing an issue?

 

 

I appreciate any help.

post #1961 of 2172
What are you running this from - Windows? Go into the monitor set-up and see what screen sizes are detected for the two outputs.

It will be much easier to configure your EH5300 if you put it in PC or DVI PC mode. In this mode you should select 16:9 screen size.
If not in PC mode you should select "Screen Fit" for any HD input.

EDIT:

 

It appears windows was to blame for this one, after bugging nvidia and samsung for troubleshooting.

 

 

 

The "change the size of all items" slider was set to the middle of the bar as a default, which was causing everything to be resized on my new samsung display (but not my old one?). I slide the slider bar down to smallest and it fixed my problem.

is there an HDMI input labeled (DVI) on it? If there is. Use that.

And also create a custom resolution version of 1920x1080. (use Manual timings and set the total vertical pixels 10-20 below what it is automatically set for)
post #1965 of 2172

Did someone delete my post or did I forget to click the "Submit" button?

 

I am looking for the panel manufacturer for these versions?

 

PJ03

MH01

 

If it was deleted, I apologize. 

post #1966 of 2172
Can't imagine why it would have been deleted.
post #1967 of 2172
I too have one of the "Version: PJ03" panels. Additional details under the service menu list the panel as

Option: 50D6AF1D,US,5000,NONE

Build Date 8/7/2013

No record of this panel anywhere else, can anyone help determine what panel is actually behind the scenes?

Here is the answer

 

55A1UF0E
A — panel manufacturer (A = Samsung; D = CMO; L = AUO; I = CPT)
1 — frequency (6 = 50/60 Hz; 1 = 100/120 Hz; 2 = 200/240 Hz)
U — panel (A = AntiGlare; T = TN; U = Ultra Clear)
F — resolution (F = Full HD; H = HD; U = UD)
0 — 1st, 2nd panel and so on (1st = 0; 2nd = 1 ...)
C — backlight unit (C = CCFL; L = LED; E = Edge LED)

hi I just bought a un32eh5300 and I turned on enterain mode I think using the source and enter button when the contrast and brightness is on 0 (on hdmi 2 in pc mode).  well now its stuck on I can only pick from standard or enterain mode from the picture setting, I don't see natural or  movie anymore. how do I disable it? or is that what it does when you put the imput in pc mode ? plz help thank you. 

post #1970 of 2172
Yes, in PC mode the only picture presets are Entertainment and Standard.
Just disable PC mode and you'll have the other presets again.
Entertainment preset is exclusive of PC mode.
post #1971 of 2172

ok thank you, so i use my pc for watching blurays, would it be better to use the calibration settings posted somewhere in this thread? or just use entertain mode and the a few settings it only gives?

post #1972 of 2172

Isn't that the point of the calibration on the service menu: factory adjustment to "standard" - so no two sets are the same? There are enough warnings on here not to fiddle in the service menu and that if you do it's at your own risk, but I know that doesn't help after the event!
post #1975 of 2172

im not asking you to tell me that its not good to do what I did. I did what I did, and asking a little bit of someones help. if ur not gunna help don't respond dude. and yes mine is a 32A6AF0D. right now I calibrated it using the checkerboard and it looks fine but im sure its not what it was at when I bought the tv. so just asking what the stock settings are on someone elses tv is that has the same panel

post #1976 of 2172
I think you misunderstood my post. I'm pointing out that the factory calibration for each TV will be tailored to that TV, so somebody else's values are not likely to be suitable for your TV.
post #1977 of 2172

~~There are enough warnings on here not to fiddle in the service menu and that if you do it's at your own risk

 

I understand that. ill post what mine gave me after calibration using the checkerboard pattern using the hdmi calibration which said success after calibration. asking what other peoples are at.

post #1978 of 2172
^^^^ No, I don't think you understand. Even if you get someone else's SM settings, in all likelyhood they won't work or make things worse. There aren't any stock values. They are dependent upon firmware version, build of the boards, etc. Unless you get very lucky, you've screwed the pooch. If you're under warranty, just tell Samsung that something is wrong and maybe they'll fix it. Just don't tell them that you were messing around in the SM.
post #1979 of 2172

im not screwed. I used the avs checkerboard pattern, went to service menu then down to ADC/WB then to ADC then to HDMI Calibration. Put the avs checkerboard picture up fullscreen on windows viewer hide the mouse, then pressed right on the HDMI calibration and let it do its thing. resulting in HDMI Calibration saying Success. just asking what others peoples settings are. yes mine will be off by like 1-5 on some settings but its not a disaster. here of my results.

 

ADC Result:

2nd_R_L 134

2nd_G_L 134

2nd_B_L 134

2nd_R_H 49

2nd_G_H 49

2nd_B_H 49

 

White Balance:

Sub Brightness 128

R-Offset 128

Can this TV be set to automatically default to HDMI1 when turned on?  

 

Also, has anyone been able to use discrete Input codes and/or discrete Power codes with a universal remote (excluding Harmony).  If so, what remote and device codes are you using.

 

Background

I purchased a Samsung EH5000 tv for my elderly mother at Christmas and have it connected to a TimeWarner DTA adapter with HDMI cable to HDMI1/DVI port. An older Toshiba DVD is connected to the AV port.  I have labeled the  HDMI port as Cable and the AV port as DVD.    I have purchased a URC learning remote that I would like to program to set the TV input to DVD (AV) for watching movies and to HDMI for watching TV.  so far the I haven't found any EFC or discrete codes to which the TV responds.

Perhaps this isn't possible?   I can probably program a macro to switch inputs from HDMI to AV and turn on the DVD player, but I would like to be able to set TV to default to HDMI when turned on.
