Official Samsung UNxxF7500 Owners Thread - Page 9

post #241 of 261
I ordered a replacement and it will be at my house Friday afternoon. I love Amazon. Customer service is awesome.

Just to be clear what I mean by the light leaks.
In a dark room with a dark scene there is noticeble brightness in the four corners and now I notice a little brightness on the right hand side. It is much harder to see in a lit room.
Is this the definition of a light leak?

If the replacement has the same issue I will return it for a refund.

Thanks,
Mark

So...light oozing out from the sides..so you see it on the wall..aka like a halo around the set....OR....on a real dark or black screen, you see areas of light within the frame of the screen.

Different issues however neither would be acceptable. If its light oozing from the sides, its a physical issue in the bezel. If its light area around the edges within the screen, that bleed is something you should only see on cheaper sets. That was a huge problem when you had the sets with the florescent tubes.

There are a couple of posts here on AVS regarding backlighting issues...most are a few years old. But they usually suggest gently twisting on the frame or pushing in on the screen to help the issue. None of which should have to be done if you are having the issue out of the box. You should not be seeing this with newer LED sets.

Ok...so instead of writing off most of the Apps in the HUB as unless fluff (excluding content apps like Netflix, etc), I thought I would start to explore some of the downloads available to see if anything was of use. Immediately I found out many of the games are just bad implementations of good existing games....however, the kids saw Angry Birds and of course they wanted to play. (I must admit, playing in a big screen is kind of cool). So far I found the implementation was pretty bad as it uses gestures which are at best goofy. Even if gestures could keep up with the game or even be accurate, your arm gets tired fast. I tried the pad on the remote thinking someone at Samsung thought this through however, you guess it, no response. I tried plugging in a USB mouse however the program did not recognize it as an input device. I have a Bluetooth keyboard but I don’t have a Bluetooth mouse and I do not have the Samsung Keyboard with the pad (Though it appears to be the same pad as on the remote).

So, the questions: Does anyone have a Bluetooth mouse that can verify if Angry Birds use it? I would run out for one in a sec if I knew it was supported. OR….has anyone else found an input device that will work with Birds? OR...am I the only one that’s weird enough to try and play it?

I've just ordered the UA55F7500BMXRD, though it appears it's a lot more ++$ down here in godzone compared with the states. I'm looking forward to the upgrade from my 3.5 year old Samsung LA46C650.

Thanks to those who've posted on this thread, I've just read through and picked up a lot.

FWIW, the clincher for me between the 7100 and 7500 is the quad processor, upgrade-ability through the EVO box, and the extra level of micro-dimming seemed like a good idea (score one for the marketeers!).

I compared the 7500 with 8000, to my eyes the 8000 seemed a little over-sharpened. not sure how it works, it's as though the same shot on the 8000 seemed like it was shot at f5.6 rather than f2.8 - more detail resolved either side of the focus point. curious. I guess it's a software thing. Anyway, the extra detail seemed a little false to me, so the 7500 won out. (my reference point is editing images on a 27" iMac with colour-managed screen.

Question: have any of you experience with the Spyder 4 colorometer? I have the Spyder 4 Pro, was thinking of getting the Spyder4tv hd Upgrade Kit, to assist with calibration.

cheers

PS - you folks stateside might be interested to see that down here they give the 7500 a different stand to differentiate between the 7100 and the 8000. if you're a trainspotter, take a look here

PPS - I was predisposed to Samsung as my LA46C650 has been an excellent experience. One salesman did suggest I compare with the Sony KDL55W900A, as Sony was returning to form after some years in the Wilderness. While I thought the KDL55W900A was initially impressive - especially on black levels - I did see a certain cold pallor and blueness in skintones, and saw a lack of shadow detail in the heavy blacks. I decided in favour of the Samsung 7500; not everyone would agree with me.

I have had two sets now and both exibit the same bright spots in black scenes in the 4 corners.
I have one more set coming as a replacement for dead pixels and if this one still has it then I would think it is normal for this set.
Maybe I can take a picture if I see it in the new set.

Has anyone figured out how to turn the micro dimming pro on in movie mode? There are a few questions about it earlier, but I didn't see an answer.

Thanks,
Mark

Maybe a little bit brighter in the corners on my set... but not so bright to my eyes, not a problem for me.

Concerning the Micro dimming pro, the Samsung customer service told me to play with the eco solution and eco sensor.. It seems to me that the entire screen is still dimming. Still no option for "Smart LED" in the Picture menu (Like the F8000). BTW anyone owning a F7100 can tell us if the option is available on that model?

I've sent an other email to the customer service and they answered me with a copy/paste of the description of the Micro dimming Ultimate...?!?!?

My english sucks... so if someone wants to call them directly to get the information, I'Il be gratefull.

I noticed that blacks in the Netflix app are more dull. On normal HD tv viewing(Canadian Bell expressvu1080i), its a bit better depending on the channel and with a BluRay, blacks are way better and deeper.

I chatted with a Samsung tech rep and all he kept telling me for the micro dimming pro was to turn on Eco mode.
Which I believe is not correct as that only seems to dim the entire TV.

I just watched Gravity in BluRay 3D. I must say that I'm impressed. 3D with High AMP is great. Black are OK, had no possibilities to activate Eco solution as it was greyed. But with Backlight set to 13 i had a great experience, blacks were detailed and colors were rich. Nice pop in the image.

Looking to purchase a Samsung UN60F7500 TV. I need to know the measurements
of the TV Stand. Need to know if it will fit on my current cabinet. I already know the
dimension’s of the TV with the stand, BUT NEED the footprint size.
post #250 of 261
I tried searching the thread and going over the emanual. But I couldn't find any information about where the IR receiver (eye) is located. Does anyone know?

thank you

EDIT: found it. Lower right corner under the bezel.

Does anyone have a weird "auto dimming" issue with this TV? I have the un46f7500 model. It happens on all sources but is very noticeable during video games. Its difficult to describe but basically if I look at a bright source or pan the camera up in to the sky the brightness goes way down, like some weird eco dimming feature. I made sure all eco and dimming settings are off and tested it with various settings on dynamic standard and movie presets and even tried game mode but it kept happening. I read something about turning off "dimming" in service menu and while I was able to access the service menu I couldn't really see any dimming options and didn't feel comfortable digging around in it too much. Any help is appreciated because its driving me nuts.

Micro dimming does not exist in the Canadian and UK Models. It has been confirmed by CNET. It is a total rip off for us Canadians.
post #254 of 261
Got a link for that?

Judt ordered one today from Amazon Warehouse for 1538 plus free delivery. Should get it next week, can't wait to see how much better this is compared to my 6 year old LCD

Is the LCDtvreview site the best source for calibration on this TV? (aside from using a disc or a professional)

I don't know if they have it for this model, but in the past, I've used tweaktv.com with pretty good results.

  Hi all. New to the site and the LCD world. I am getting ready to buy a 46" and I have narrowed down my choices to the outgoing 7500 and the new 7150. I was hoping someone could help me with the choice. I have done a lot of research, but being a rookie in everything I am a bit overwhelmed which would be a better choice. Is there enough of a difference for the current $200 premium of the 7500 over the 7150 or is the new technology of the 7150 outweigh the higher model series of the 7500. Thanks in advance for any advice you could send my way.

I thought the 7150 was the older model? In any case the only differences I know of are that the 7500 has the hand gestures with the built in camera and access to Skype. Everything else seems to be the same. I'm not an expert though, I just bought the 7500 and haven't even received it yet. Should be here tomorrow.

The 7150 I was referring to is the new H7150 vs the F7500

See if Motion Lighting is turned on in advanced settings.
