Started to play around and discovered that if I press the 3D button on the remote it fixes it, sometimes it is corrected if I pause the movie or chapter skip, sometimes if I change the picture from dynamic to standard or visa vrsa. Seems to be random and sometimes nothing fixes it at all but if I turn it all off and come back 10 min later it works fine. I have sent an email to Samsung but not holding my breath.
For the 3D noobs just know that you may be enabling 2D-3D conversion accidently. I think some of you may be doing that. It's important to know that there are 2 ways of enabling 3D on this set: The first is Auto in which the tv will automatically switch into 3D mode when it detects it. The second is Message Notice which will tell you it detects a 3D signal - but you still have to hit the 3D button
But if you have it on Message Notice, the rub is that if you If you have a receiver, you need to make sure that it is on the correct source (bluray) before you turn on the bluray player with the 3D disc in it. If you wait until AFTER you power on the bluray player and then switch sources on your receiver, a lot of times the disc will either A. Not play at all B. It will just play in 2D instead AND THAT is where you will have issues if you proceed to hit the 3D button and accidently enable 3D conversion. You will need to power off your bluray player and power it back on so that the tv will correctly identify/detect a 3D signal and you will be enabling true 3D and not conversion mode
You can avoid this whole scenario by making sure that you have 3D settings set to 'Auto' where the tv will switch into 3D automatically when it detects the source. As I said above, you still should wait until after you've switched the receiver over to bluray before powering on your bluray player
I have mine set to Message Notice because my tv will sometimes detect a 3D signal when there isn't one, such as turning on the Xbox 360 for some reason it will go into 3D mode when it doesn't need to. But most of you guys should probably just leave it on Auto and follow the above steps
1 step to ensure you are not accidently enabling 2D-3D conversion (when you have it set to Message Notice) is by knowing that when your set is detecting a source and you press the 3D button on your tv remote - you will not see a 3D sub-menu show up on the tv - it will just go into 3D mode. However, if you are doing it wrong you will see the 3D sub menu with 2D-3D shown in a square on the screen when you press the 3D button on your remote
Complicating things further, you may have a bluray player like me that also has 2D to 3D conversion and a button for it on the bluray remote. Make sure that your set up for detecting 3D is set to Auto on all devices in their respective settings menus and you will have the most fool proof setup
