Now that you mention it, I think mine started doing it since a recent firmware update as well. I've had the set for about a month and a half but I didn't notice it until two days ago (though I was out of town for most of that month and a half). Also, I was wrong about there being another update. I hope they can fix it.

I'm reading several posts online complaining that the 7100 for some reason or another has a much less impressive image quality when compared to last year's D7000. Have people here found that to be the case?

Just throwing this out. I wonder if Standby Mode Upgrade is set to ON for those of you with the 'light' coming on. For some reason when the TV goes and checks for an update, the light get turned on for some reason.

Do you still find this to be the case or have you since been able to tweak it to match or better the 2010 model?

Nope - first time it did this I verified that setting was still off.

Hated my D7000 due to unbearable clouding so we upgrded to the D8000. It took forever to find settings I liked but eventually I did and now I love that set. Got the 7100 and went through the same thing minus the clouding. Took forever but now it looks good.

I wish the D7100 had a feature called cinema blach that the D8000 has, where it turns off the leds where the letterbox bars are, but other than that I can't say the 7100 isn't awesome. Certainly it is better than the crappy D7000 I had last year.

Yeah, same here. That is turned off and I think has always been off. I'm just glad that the entire television isn't turning on on its own.

I want to make sure I understand. The TV is not turning on, just a small light on the front of the TV?

Yes, the Samsung logo lights up. If I remember correctly the red LED on the right bottom corner was also on (normal when TV is off). TV itself was off.

So is this a significant issue or just a nit?

does not affect the function of the TV, but certainly bugs me...something is not right with the code/firmware/logic.

Yeah, I understand. Now I'll be looking for it when mine arrives.

Keep in mind that mine did it twice shortly after the 1020 update, now it has not done it since (its been at least a week or so with the light staying off).

I just caught mine doing it again yesterday. One other thing I noticed is that, when it's off, and I aim some other device's remote control at it and press a button (like my HTPC's "Play" button), the Samsung light flickers in response to it. Sometimes it'll just stay on, too. Like EAnglum said, it isn't a big deal and I'm not about to dump the TV because of it. It's just a little annoying to see imperfections like that after spending so much on something.
post #345 of 2849
ok - so I caught it this morning as well....but its a bit strange.

I went out to the living room around 6am and found the logo on (TV off). I took some pictures with my blackberry and noticed they did not turn out well, so I turned on the lamp near the TV and was going to use my DSLR. After I turned the lamp on, the logo turned off. Is this a coincidence or could it be tied to the light sensor as part of the logic flaw??

Of course I said a few words and my wife was wondering, WTF are you doing, its 6am and your taking pictures of the TV.... biggrin.gif
post #346 of 2849
I have my TV set to the Samsung logo only illuminate when the TV is off and haven't had any problems with it going on or off, so perhaps try setting it to on (when TV off) if you don't want to deal with the on/off problem until they fix the firmware...it also has the added benefit of making a nice nightlight.

I think you might be onto something. This might explain the fact that it responds to me pointing a random remote control at it and pressing a button on that remote control. Maybe it's the light sensor responding to the infrared pulses from that remote. Have you seen the same behavior that I'm describing? This happens on my set regardless of whether the light is initially on or off (it only requires the TV to be off and configured such that the light is on only when the TV is on).

Hey Category, It seems like you really took time to find the right settings... would you mind sharing what worked for you? i know it wont necesserily work for anyone else but i am always curious to see "what works" I have tried various methods and although i am very happy with the picture i am certain i can get it better

Thanks

A review of ES7100 with out any settings.

[Home Theater Review]http://hometheaterreview.com/samsung-un60es7100-3d-ledlcd-hdtv/[/URL]

Only thing of note is that Dynamic Contrast and Black Enhancer tools are supposedly used to control electronic Micro Dimming. So why is just about everybody settings these 2 settings to 'Off' ?
post #350 of 2849
Has anyone been successful in getting the 7100 to connect to their Windows PC Shares, or does this TV only connect via DLNA?

Thanks
Ian

I haven't seen any Samsung TV connect directly to a samba, apple, smb, or nfs file share. Would be great if it could, but sadly only connects via DLNA. As for DLNA media servers, best luck I've had so far is with Mezzmo. Still waiting on the Plex Client app to be released as an app on Samsung. Then, I may switch over to Plex Media Server on my PC and the Client app on the TV, but the streaming with just the media server doesn't come close to Mezzmo IMHO.

Just bought this set and I have to say it has this weird "everything looks live broadcast" look to it. Let me try to explain. Sort of like watching live soap opera shows where every scene has that hand held HD look to it. Watching Forrest Gump right now and it doesn't have that grainy old school look to it like it should, same with Lord Of The Rings. Sorry, kinda hard to explain but everything looks to HD, fake if you want. I might have to take this back, my last set was an XBR2 which made it's way to the basement but might have to return to the front room. Anyone else having this happen?

Scott.
post #353 of 2849
Thanks for the reply..

I have tried Serviio and that seems to work OK so I'll try Mezzmo next to see its any better. I have been using my LG Blue Ray player that does have the ability to connect to PC shares but I would like to do it from the TV itself just in case the player dies, i seems I never actually put a disc in it anymore smile.gif

Thanks for the info and the Mezmo suggestion

Cheers

Ian

Scott.

That is what they call the "soap opera effect." It is common on LED (LCD) TVs nowadays as it is extra video processing (frame interpolation) to compensate for the worse motion performance of the LED technology. The TV comes out of the box set to "standard" - under picture settings, Auto Motion Plus. Try changing it to "clear" or custom and set Blur Reduction to 10 and Judder Reduction to 0. Either of these settings should help with motion blur without giving you the soap opera effect.

They don't appear to have the most accurate info in their article as they state the 7500 has more zones than the 7100, in reality they have the same number of zones. Dynamic Contrast and Black Enhancer don't control micro dimming, they just "enhance" it more, i.e. crushing black levels, which is why people turn them off.

Although I think they are pretty accurate in their assessment of the TV overall as I think the 7100 is a strong contender and better value than the 7500, maybe even the 8000 as none of Samsung's TVs have true local dimming (I think only Sony and the Sharp Elite do true local dimming).

Sir! You made my night! Please send me your paypal Email so I can buy you a six pack of your choice! Night and day difference! Why would mfg. set this setting to default? Wicked annoying if you ask me.

Cheers, Scott.
post #357 of 2849
Scott, also if you still have your TV on everything default I would suggest taking the picture mode out of Dynamic Mode and changing it to either Standard or Movie (I go with Standard).

Yep, did that. Also used your settings on pg. 3 or 4 of this thread, except for the backlight setting, I'm hovering right around 9.

Thanks again, Scott.

^Thank you.. I will try later this evening and see if i have any joy on my set. I think your lower backlight setting will suit my environment as it is set up in a fairly dark dedicated media room.
