Hey everyone. I'm new to this forum, and I'm having an issue when watching 3D Movies and I was hoping to get some insight on the issue.
I have a Samsung Plasma (P64E8000) as well as a Samsung 3D BD player (BDE6500), and the Samsung 3D glasses.
I've had this 3D setup for about 14 months now, and I've never had any issue until now. The last two 3D movies I've tried to watch (Turbo and Man of Steel), I'm seeing, what appears to be something like the L/R - R/L images switching on their own, or something that's causing the augmented depth of foreground and background images to blend together or something like that. At any random point the movie will look just fine, but then I'll see a little flicker. And when this flicker happens, it's as if the background images are now in the foreground and the foreground images are in the background, and the whole depth perception becomes messed up. It's very irritating to try and watch when this happens. And then again at another random point, it will go back to normal and look just fine...until it happens again. This is really the best way I can explain it. I'm not all that versed on the different 3D issues, but I've been doing my best to see if it's the BD player, TV, or the glasses.
I have 6 pairs of Samsung 3D glasses and this effect happens no matter what pair I'm wearing. This became evident when my whole family was trying to watch Turbo and they all experienced this effect, so I'm sure it's not the glasses.
On my TV, when I watch broadcast 3D (I have DirecTV), it looks perfect and I haven't experienced this issue once when watching broadcast 3D. So, the only other component I'm left with is the BD player.
Could there possibly be an issue with the player or the laser in the player, or whatever it is inside the player that sends the images to the receiver and then into the TV? I have the same 1.4 HDMI cables for all my components, as well as running from the receiver into the TV.
I'm not sure how or why this started happening, but I'd rather come here than try and deal with Samsung customer support who never seems to really know anything. All they want to do is walk me through a script of standard cop-out responses.
I've tried all the standard stuff like re-booting TV and BD player, I have all the latest Firmware updates, etc.
If anybody has experienced anything like this, or has any advice on which way I can go, I'd appreciate it.
