Are you supposed to keep IR Blaster plugged in?

With the IR blaster plugged in, i can control the cable box, DVD player and extend range of remote. If i had a DVR & amp i bet it would control that too.

Clarification, you don't need IR Blaster for controlling basic functions of A/V components(power up/down, volume, etc).
IR Blaster needed for voice/motion control & smart functions (lets tv change channels via voice commands, etc).

Almost identical pictures on a 2 year newer tv. the 2011 tv is slightly faster too.
Well at least the new remote works better, right? lol





I have the UN46D7000 and would be happy with it if it wasn't for the light bleeding at the corners and clouding. What I want to know about your UN55F7100 is if you have any clouding or light leakage issues. Thanks.

And I agree with bucknuts07, the picture quality looks noticeably better on the pictures of the F7100.

I picked up a UN55F7100 today from Best Buy. My previous Sony KDL-55NX720 failed on me after only 18 months. I have always bought Sony's in the past, but I figured it was time to try something new.

This F7100 panel is flawless. Beautiful color, no clouding, no leakage, just crystal clear picture.

Still fine tuning it for PS3 on Black Ops 2 and Dish Network.

I have a F7100 and an LG LA7400 in home right now. I am a reward zone silver member, so I ah e 60 days to decide which one to keep. Since you are a PS3 owner and gamer could you tell me in the night scenes or zombies maps that are darker any trailing in those areas. I have tried rage and borderlands 2 and as long as it is a well lit scene none is apparent, but sewer areas and indoor environments I notice shadow detail trailing or smearing when camera is panned. I love everything about the Samsung vs LG, but none of the trailing or smearing is seen on the LG. If you test and notice or if you have figure out how to adjust it out without washing the picture let me know.

Are you going to finish it up by hiding the wires and the likes? When looking for a house, yhat was one of my requirements. The fireplace cannot be the center of the room. The tv is the center. Our fireplace is in the corner, leaving the tv front and center. I don't

I went into Best Buy and showed them the online price at ABE's and they had no problem giving me the price match. The point of the story is you can now get the 65" f7100 from Best Buy for 2339.00 if you show them the Abes of Maine price. You're all welcome smile.gif


Wow, I had all but decided on getting the 55" yesterday and noticed that the price went up by $200 today. I went to the Abe's of Maine website and they have the 55" for $1445 as opposed to 1799.99 at Best Buy. Being a silver reward zone member I am going to have to give this a shot ! Hopefully they will price match for me as well

I'm not too concerned about the wires, the nice thing is the inputs are all on the right side of the TV so I bundled the hdmi cables together so they look like a single cable and it just kinda pokes out of the bottom right corner before disappearing behind my speaker and entertainment stand, I understand that other people really hate seeing even that though.

My fireplace is right in the middle of the centre wall of my living room, it's pretty much made to have a TV mounted above it as there's a power plugin and a phone/LAN panel so my TV just plugs everything in behind itself. I find it makes a really nice look, with the fireplace crackling and a big, beautiful floating picture above it, but to each his own! (Also, my fireplace is fake, it's natural gas not wood haha.)

Just thought I would post a positive 7100 experience...Been playing Last of Us on the PS3 on the 7100 for the last few days and it looks fantastic. Game mode is on and haven't really fiddled with anything else. Had to adjust the brightness during the day because of the bright room I play in but at night the game looks stunning...and fun too!
post #760 of 5017
So far I have left my Eco Sensor on. Are you guys turning yours off?

I think the eco sensor is great. Since it only changes the brightness, you do not have to adjust it manually for daytime and night time viewing. It has been stated, changing the brightness level does not have an effect on the calibration of any other settings so you are not ruining anything with the picture buy lowering or raising the brightness so might as well let the TV set your brightness for the different times of the day.

How exactly do I enable game mode? Trying to get the right settings down or my 360 and Ps3.

Nevermind, figured it out.

A lot of the complaints I'm seeing with this model and the 6400 seem to revolve around the smart function of the set. Not so much with PQ. So, for someone who isn't going to be using the Smart feature all that much, ok to be honest, maybe for the first few days I get the set home and probably never after that.. who wants to watch movies, sports and TV as well as game, would I REALLY see a difference between this set and the 6400 ?. It will be going into a dark room with light that is 100% controllable so glare and that stuff isn't an issue. I wish I could say I'd be using the 3D a lot, but never owned a 3D set so I can't say. On paper the 7100 and 6400 look very similar. What would you guys recommend
post #764 of 5017
Coming from a 6400 to a 7100 I noticed a huge difference in picture quality. The 7100 just has more pop for some reason (I'm thinking because of the glossy screen compared to the matte on the 6400).

Also want to point out in regards to gaming on the 7100. You will be hard pressed to see any difference in lag from this set and the Sony kdl-55w802a. I exchanged the Sony set (a lot of flashlighting) for the this set and I couldn't be more happier. The 7100 has better picture and gaming lag is not even noticeable.

Thanks for the quick reply. I DID read that the 7100 was the 2013 choice for a gaming TV due to input lag time. Also, I just found that the 55F7100 is $45 more at Abe's of Maine than the sale priced F6400 at best buy (1399.99).. Here's hoping they price match
post #766 of 5017
FYI: if you want to price match an online competitor at bestbuy. Try to get the store manager to do it for you. I was able to get the un55f7100 for $1199.99 (no joke) even before that I had the manager give me a discount on the un55f6400 for $999.99. It seams like they could only drop the price on the samsungs. The manager had a hard time giving me a discount on any of the Sony sets because of the umrp on the product.

Funny, I'm looking for the differences between the F7500 and F7100 units. Is there a noticeable difference between Pro and Standard micro dimming? Is there a noticeable difference 960 and 720 CMR?

I don't look at Smart Hub as a ON or OFF proposition. Meaning I'll use it for Amazon VOD since it's not available on my oppo 103 BDP so the quad processor might be beneficial. What would make the F7500 worthwhile for sure if it did a better job of eliminating light bleeding and clouding. But I'm very encouraged that there are very few complaints about light leakage on the F7100. Plus the F7100 comes in a 65 inch size.

We picked up the 60" at Costco a couple of weeks ago and have really been liking it (mostly) so far. One of the things I'm enjoying to a surprising extent is how much more quickly this powers on, compared to our previous set. I have been a bit disappointed in the viewing angle (it's quite watchable from the side, just not nearly as pretty), but since 95% of the time it's just my wife and I sitting right in front, it's not a huge deal. I haven't seen any flashlighting at all, and I don't believe there's any clouding.

What has been a problem is that (my wife, mostly) has been noticing a lot of noise in solid black objects (like a black shirt), especially in SD content. It's interemittent. The TV is the only thing that is new - we haven't changed service providers. And she swears she would have noticed it if the noise had been visible with our previous TV (for informational purposes, our previous set was an 8 year old JVC LCOS). Is this a settings issue? Some sort of over-processing going on? Any advice would be appreciated.
post #769 of 5017
At first I thought I had edge bleeding on this tv. But it isnt anything. My D7000 had no clouding or flashlighting.
The part that I didnt say about the two pictures is that they only look slightly different is because the bottom one wasnt on movie mode. I should have taken a picture of both on movie mode... lol
But the D7000 was selling at higher prices. The f7100 is a good deal. Neutral opinion, same quality. Im positive. just different softwares and remotes.
post #770 of 5017
Thought I was gonna have my F7100 delivered yesterday but the clown freight service that Costco uses, Ceva Logistics, just never showed up and didn't call me to say they had to move it to next week. Frustrating that I had to be around all day just in case they showed up only to find that the bums simply did not show up.
post #771 of 5017
Does anyone know if there is a way where on Smart Hub you can program it to only give HD channels as recommendations? It seems ridiculous that this set would even deal in SD channels. I never watch SD but it continuously gives me SD recs. Similarly, the guide starts on the SD channels and even with page down it takes a while to get to the HD channels....on our box the HD stations start in the 700 channels. Again seems ridiculous that a so call HD/3D Smart Tv defaults to SD stations on both of these items.

Great Question... My HD channels start at 1000 but I can't figure it out either. I hope sombody out there has figured it out cause I'de like to know also!!

Re: Post #768
1) make sure you watching about 8' or farther (bigger the TV any flaw in picture is glaring)
2) my settings that i like: Backlight: 12, Contrast: 98, Brightness: 45, Sharpness: 7, Dynamic Contrast: Low, Black Tone: Dark, Gamma: 0, Motion Lighting: off, Digital Clean Tone: off, MPEG Noise Filter: off, HDMI Black Level: Low, Film Mode: Auto1, Auto Motion Plus: Clear, Cinema Black: low, Energy Saving: off, Eco Sensor: off
3) Why buy a HDTV to watch SD content? Watch the digital or HD channels only, SD on a big LED HDTV is a train wreck.

Enjoy the TV

Re: post #771,772
I pointed this out in post #726
The recommendation feature needs to be more flexible.
Under Broadcasting/ Edit Channels delete all the SD channels or unwanted channels. (Unplug IR blaster when editing, make sure you exit out of menu turn TV off frequently, since this process crashes frequently, after your done plug IR Blaster back in).
I haven't been able to check if this work around to make recommendations better works, but it seems logical.
I've had to factory reset & reset smart hub, due to ruling out other bugs i've run into with latest firmware.

I don't mean to thread-jack, I was sent here after not getting any responses on my own thread: HELP, brand new UN60F6300 keeps rebooting randomly when remote is used

The issue I am facing is that I purchased two UN60F6300 from two different stores (one from Sears and one from BestBuy), and they both exhibit similar behavior when connected to my home network. The behavior is that the TV will reboot at random intervals when the remote is used. This behavior happens both when using the TV remote as well as using my Cable providers remote that has been programmed to work with the TV. This behavior happens only when connected to my home network (and therefore the internet), and it doesn't matter if that connection is via WiFi or Wired. It as if the "smart tv" features are running in the background and doing something that the TV can't handle when the remote is also being used, and it just shuts down. This behavior is not specific to any particular remote commands, I've seen it happen when using any combination of key presses (volume adjustment, menu button, tools button, smart tv button, etc...).

My TV is running the latest firmware (1104), and currently I have disconnected it from my network so that I can use it without having it shut down.
I am considering taking this TV back to BestBuy and returning it., does anyone have any suggestions for things I can try before I do that?
Thanks in advance for your advice,
-BassKozz

Try these suggestions.
Factory reset & Smart Hub reset. (code for reset for both 0,0,0,0)
Try disconnecting IR Blaster. (isolate if Samsung remote or IR Blaster)
Maybe you have a conflicting IP address, try manual assigning the IP addresses on your TV and other devices.
Other than that you may have to wait like the rest of us for a new firmware update:eek:

We sit somewhere between 10 & 11 feet back, so distance isn't an issue. And it's not JUST SD content, it's simply been noticed there more often (and as much as I'd like to have all our content be HD, that's just not practical).

Our lamp was starting to go on our old TV, which makes me wonder if we were just losing the noise in the dimming screen. There's one other thing that's changed as well, now that I think of it - our old hookup was via component cables, not HDMI. Wonder if that could make a difference...

Has anyone else seen anything like this? Or have any other thoughts regarding this issue?

In my opinion, people usually have the SHARPNESS cranked too high. TEQZEN is correct in his sharpness setting, start at 20 and go lower. Mine is set at 10. Also might want to try lowering BRIGHTNESS to about 40, and maybe try GAMMA at -1. Just my opinion...

This. I actually noticed this issue while I was "auditioning" tv sets from Samsung, Sony and LG. It was very noticeable in the Samsung TVs I tested from Series 6 to Series 7 (as that is the range of TVs I was checking out)

Among the Sony W804, LG LA7400 and the 2 Samsung tvs I've tried, I only noticed it on the Samsung sets. A lot of noise and the resolution was too soft and lacked sharpness/ crispness. That was one of the major deterrent for me from getting a Sammy tv this year.

I have a Vizio m651d-a2r that I got from Amazon a couple of weeks ago, just ordered the 65 7100 (coming on Thurs) to replace it since I am not happy with the Vizio. Too much ghosting and motor blur for me. I don't know if I am just picky or not but it was bad in games and made them harder to play even in game mode. I am 15 pages in on this thread and no one seems to have mentioned the 2d to 3d conversion. Does this work on any feed and is it even worth using? I am going to assume since no one has mentioned it that is isn't haha. Also how is the Active 3d on this? I have heard some say it is good. I really liked the passive on the Vizio but definitely saw a drop in resolution from my dads active XVT Vizio. Less flicker on the passive also.
