Official Sharp AQUOS LC-70LE757U, LC-80LE757U and LC-60LE757U Owners Thread - Page 7

post #181 of 223
How does the 70le755 compare to the Samsung 65f7100. Especially for the same price (2199$) price matched at bestbuy. 5 inches more are great!

Any issues with the sharp tv. Aside from flash lighting which plagues most edge lit tv's.

So does anyone have an official answer if the 70le757u send out a true dolby signal through the optical?

post #183 of 223
I recently bought a Sharp 70le757u, and I have been researching the web for an answer as to whether or not it will pass DD 5.1 through the optical. I want to connect a Sonos Playbar and sub, hoping to add a couple play 3's in the rear. I have read hundreds of threads trying to find my answer to this. I want to know before I unbox the tv or if I have to take it back and get a tv that does have pass through.
I have found my answer, I think. Maybe some of you more tech savvy peeps can add any insight if I am just reading what I want to see. this is taken directly from the manual
 
~You can output digital audio to an AV amplifi er or similar device whose DIGITAL AUDIO INPUT terminal is connected to the DIGITAL AUDIO OUT terminal on the TV. Please select an audio output format compatible with the audio format of the program you are watching and the equipment connected.
 
PCM: For connecting to equipment that does not support Dolby Digital and DTS. The same audio (main, sub, or main/sub) as the audio of the program being viewed is output. 2-channel audio with a sampling rate of 48 kHz or less is output as linear PCM audio.
 
Bitstream: For connecting to an audio system that supports Dolby Digital and DTS. Audio is output through both the main and sub channels.
 
NOTE • Analog channel audio and video input audio are output in PCM mode even when "Bitstream" is selected. • PCM digital input signals are output in PCM mode even when "Bitstream" is selected.
 
Thanks for looking.

It will pass 5.1 through optical as long as the source is providing 5.1 (cable box or bluray). Just needs to be on bitstream setting to work properly. Works for me.

I've been following this thread since I bought my TV in August. I finally called Sharp about the flash-lighting issues I have.

Flashlighting.jpg 868k .jpg file

Below is the response I received from Sharp outlining what I need to do to help them properly diagnose the problem.

The process seems designed to make me go away. 3 -5 photos of every input with active video? My set is wall mounted and I have 1 HDMI input in use.

I'm not sure it is worth it to jump through this many hoops. I'm looking for a little perspective before I tap out on pursing this issue any further.

In an effort to properly diagnose the issue you are experiencing with your television, please send photos and purchase receipt (as attachments) to us at aquosadvantage@sharpusa.com.

Ensure the total email size is no more than 10 MB. (If the total size of the email message exceeds 10 MB, divide the photos into multiple smaller-sized emails in order to send them to us.) Below are some guidelines to be used when taking photos:

Send at least three (3) to five (5) photos as described below.

All of the photos should be taken with active TV video on the screen rather than PC / Game system video or a plain black / grey screen. It is more helpful in diagnosing the issue.

Take the photos directly in front of the TV (rather than at an angle).

Turn off the camera flash to avoid reflections that can make the issue difficult to see.

Be sure to use the highest resolution possible on your camera.

Please take at least three (3) full screen photos (showing the entire television screen and frame) with active TV video:

1. Press the MENU button on the remote control, and take a full screen photo with the TV Menu displayed.

2. Press the DISPLAY button, and take a full screen photo showing the on-screen display for every input available.
o On-screen display includes the input number, type of signal, resolution, audio type, etc.

3. Take a full screen photo without the TV Menu or on-screen display

4. Take any additional close-up photos that will help us identify the issue.

5. Take a photo of the model number and serial number sticker on either the rear or side of the unit.

Once we receive the photos, we will complete the evaluation and provide a response as soon as possible.

Why not just return it and get another one, it is still under warranty.

The retailer said I need to work the warranty through Sharp.
post #188 of 223

Got my TV replaced. No more backlight bleeding.

 

I noticed another issue though - lips sync. It happens like once a week (sound gets out of sync with the picture and some kind of background voices could be heard) and to get rid of it I have to restart my Comcast receiver. I saw someone complaining about the same issue earlier in this thread but I haven't seen any replies or suggestions on how to fix it permanently.

 

I guess I can live with that, but is it even possible to fix it?

post #189 of 223

Having  Amazon replace my TV as well due to this flash lighting issue.  Have had TV for a few weeks now and I'm very impressed with the picture quality.  Was going to try and live with the flashlighting as it didn't seem to be that bad and I was afraid a replacement set could be worse as this seems to be a common problem. But, was watching the Hobbit on bluray the other  night and in dark scenes the flash lighting/clouding actually extended up into the picture and beyond the black bars, not excepptable.  

post #190 of 223

I am getting nervous about all this flash lighting issues I have read. Is this a major issue amongst this tv or is it a few here and there?

Don't be nervous. First of all it's not common (meaning it doesn't occur on each TV). Secondly, it happens to ALL LED TVs. You have the same chances of getting backlight bleeding in any other brand...

 

However, in order for you to save money, I'd recommend buying from retail store (e.g. Paul's TV, BestBuy, and so on), especially considering the fact they usually match Amazon's price. If you buy from Amazon it will cost you a fortune to ship the TV back should any issues arise.

post #192 of 223

I did buy it a week before Christmas and got it cheaper than "boxing day/week" . I haven't picked it up yet as they didn't have one in stock at my store and I am in mid renovation of my new mancave so they said I could pick it up when I was closer to being completed.

post #193 of 223

Actually Amazon is great at returning TV's. I called and told them I wasn't happy with the TV and they said "no problem, do you want an exchange or a different brand?" They're delivering the new one today and taking the old one away at no charge.  I'll let you all know if this one is better.  And yes it's true this is an issue to some degree with all edge lit led's. Was at friends house over weekend who just bought 65" M series Vizio and I saw it on their TV too.  I don't think they're even aware of it and I didn't point it out but if you know what to look for you can see it.

I think they are about the same, except the sharp has a semi-matte screen and the Samsung has a glossy screen.
post #195 of 223
I was doing some reading on this flashlighing phenomenon. It could also be an issue I the panels not being tight together. The panels are also flexible so they may be out of adjustment. I read you can tighten it loosen the screws at the back to try and fix this.

By the way, fellas. Have you managed to make DLNA client on this TV see MKV format videos? I installed Plex on my PC and can play MKV files in Plex's console, but when I connect to DLNA Plex server it simply doesn't see MKV files - I even tried renaming MKV to AVI (found this suggestion on one of the forums) - no luck.

 

Anyone?? Any ideas?

Just got my replacement TV from Amazon and with this TV I see no flashlighting/clouding in any of the 4 corners like some of the examples in this thread. I think a good test is when the TV first comes on with the Sharp logo the screen should be just about totally black, no light in the 4 corners. If your TV has this issue I'd definitely give it a try and do what they're asking and get a replacement if possible. If you mostly watch regular full screen TV (no black bars) this is a non issue but if you watch a lot of bluray you should pursue getting a replacement.

Anyone knows how to set up a time for TV? I ran into an issue where I'm getting tons of security warnings about untrusted certificates every time I open Youtube app or Web Browser, and I believe it's caused by incorrect time set on TV.

 

By the way, I can't believe that... In one of Sharp's official videos about Web Browser usage, the exact same warning popped up, and this bitch just said "I'm gonna press OK here..." What a joke...

Its not really a phenomenon, it is a issue that edge lit units have. Most sets will have this to some degree. I would further say that most sets do not have this issue enough to make it not worth buying. Now some of the picture I have seen from time to time are totally unexceptionable. However, I hate to say it but a perfect set with no sign of this issue what so ever ( "perfect" ) would be the "phenomenon". This can be said about all edge lit units from any manufacturer.

I think put my MKV files on USB and watch them that way but now I watch them (still on USB) but use my blue ray.
I don't think this tv or my blue ray support MKV via DLNA

I already figured it out:

 

1. DLNA - not gonna work. DLNA client on TV does not support MKV.

2. USB Flash drive - not gonna work. Flash drive must be formatted in FAT32 which supports file maximum 4GB, and 720p MKV files start at 5GB.

3. USB hard drive - works!

4. Hooking up laptop through HDMI - works;

5. Connecting Chromecast and running MKV in Chrome on PC/Laptop - works.

Agree 100%.

Quite satisfied with my 70"er. The lighting effect is soooo minimal, that serious eyeball time is needed, just to discover.

Coming from Sharps 60" [3 year old model] This new set has me grinning ear2ear. PQ is quite phenomenal.

Does anybody know if I can use my tablet or my phone (android) as a keyboard with my tv???
post #209 of 223
I was a bit concerned about the flashlighting and clouding issues but decided to buy the LC70LE757U anyhow. I picked one up on sale from BestBuy a few days ago during one of their boxing week sales.

Unfortunately my set ended up having some pretty bad flashlighting in the corners and clouding. When there's a picture on, it's not really that noticeable. It's mainly when there's a black screen. I know the issue is pretty common for edge lit screens. I'm just not sure how bad I'd consider mine to be.

I also noticed that the two bottom corners bleed light out the back of the bezel. The light bleed is bad enough to project 2" blue spots onto my wall. Is this something normal for this model?
I haven't read anything about that.

If this were your TV, would you return it? What are the odds of having the same issues again? Is the LC-70LE857U any better?

Thanks!




(I ended up putting black electrical tape in the corners to stop the light bleed - see above.)

I have had the same issue and I ended up replacing my set - the replacement set had no backlight bleeding issue. I'd recommend replacing your set.

 

In regards to LC-70LE857U - it may have the exact same problem.
