What do you guys think? I have not contacted Samsung about this because it doesn't really bother me much and always goes away when the hdmi input resets.

Seems like we've had a few people in this thread reporting pink screens, but all happen under different scenarios, and neither yours nor mine seem to rise to the level of actually dealing with tech support.


I hypothesize that there may be some sort of firmware problem, where, in a few corner cases, you can get the pink screen, but most of the time and for most people it's fine, and re-initializing things either by power cycling or doing a handshake often (always?) fixes it. It's really weird the way the Netflix app does it though--the movie being pink and the FF/REW preview overlays being normal. I've got no theory to explain that.

I almost bought a 48H6350, but I decided not to at the end of the day based on aesthetics, lack of need, and fiscal responsibility.

It's a nice set. I just dont need one. LOL!

I just bought the 50H6350.

The only small issue, twice the screen went dark... for a few seconds... no video no audio. Then came back has nothing happened.

Otherwise very impressed of it!

But I still miss my older TV that died last week. A Samsung DLP 46in HL-R4664.

I got the UN65H6300AFXZA from Costco. Is the correct thread? I don't see one for UNxxH6300, but I know Costco messes with model numbers sometimes. Anyhow my question is basic. When the screen goes black, there is some minor light leakage around the corners. I have owned a plasma for the last 6+ years, so I'm not sure what is normal and what is beyond normal on an LCD.

Other than that the picure is good.

Yeah, that's pretty normal for edge-lit LEDs, especially in larger sizes. Other minor issues you may see are screen uniformity issues (uneven backlighting), blooming (slight glows around bright objects on a dark background), and just some general black level issues that are not honestly very big deals. I think the only difference from plasma that I would not classify as minor is the motion handling--it just doesn't match plasma in that respect, but you can't have everything.

Buy UN50H6350 or buy 2015 version

I'm looking to purchase a new TV and have zeroed in on the UN50H6350. I see nothing but overwhelmingly positive reviews for this TV and the price is right. My major issue is do I purchase the 2015 model?? If so what model number is it? It seems the 2015 models have "J" in their code. I also seem to be reading about non-samsung panel issues with the 2015 models.

Any information will be much appreciated.

Thanks

Thanks. I just wanted to ease my mind and make sure I didn't keep a broken TV. It fits my needs, I wanted size (had a 50"), functioning game mode and relatively cheap. There are cheaper 65" TVs, but I didn't want to take a chance on any off brands. I'm not sure I need the smart hub functionality, but its hard to not get it. I'm also disappointed there is no Android app for remote features, that seems so commonplace these days.

A lot of folks would take a dim view of that opinion. There's a reason high end LCD televisions have edge-lit/direct-lit hardware dimming and FALD schemes. This is not a bad television but it doesn't come close to a good plasma.

I get that--I tried to be clear it was my opinion, and also couched in the context of replying to someone who already said they liked the look of the set, so I feel it was appropriate to warn of other the issues, but not to overhype them. Everyone's got their own pet peeve. Personally I think LED motion handling comes in three flavors: godawful, abysmal, and disappointing, but that's neither here nor there. To me, FALD is a lot of money to spend to not even try to solve the biggest problem.

Don't know much about the 2015 models, and it's not likely we will have a settled opinion on them soon. If the 2014 models are attractive to you, the Samsung vs non-Samsung panel issue is your biggest hurdle. It really does make a big difference, esp for calibration and viewing angles. There's usually markings on the box (and the back of the set) which you can use to figure out which panel is inside, read up a few comments. Aim for Samsung.

Thank you very much for the feedback. What are your thoughts on the 4k Samsung models? From what I've read and my uses I don't think it's completely necessary, but I want to future proof this purchase as much as I can.

CatBus,
I've noticed the 60 and 65 inch do not have sammy panels. From what i've seen its AUO in the 65 and sharp in the 60. Any idea which is better?

Supposedly, Sharp is your next best bet after Samsung. But this is based on the collective wisdom of the Internet as told by Google, not my personal experience.

IR control not compatable with UHF control

I couldn't get Samsung Remote sync to Cable box either. As instructed I connected IR cable to IR out plug and placed it in front of Cable Box. Samsung customer service couldn't help either. Rep created a ticket and said someone from second level would call me in 24 hrs. It has been more than 24 hrs no one called me yet.

I have one more problem to list. NetFlix app is not working. When I click on app, I get a blank screen and nothing happens. Rep tried resetting everything nothing worked.

My Cable box model is VIP722 DVR.

Anyone had luck with any of my issues? Thanks in advance.

I have the same issue, and I believe the reason that we can not work the Dish Vip 722k receiver with the Samsung 6300 is the Samsung operates on IR control, and the Dish 722 is UHF controled

Sharp. Coming from a Un65H6350 owner who has done a side by side comparison in my home with a UN75H6350, I can give you a real world observation. Stay clear of the 50" and 65" which have AUO panels. Stay clear of the 50", 60", and 65" J6300 which also have AUO panels. What is interesting is that Samsung seems to have dropped using Sharp panels in the 2015 6 series. Also the 2015 J6300 line is a 60hz panel. I confirmed this on panel look and the motion flow has decreased to 120. A real step back in my opinion.

I think a lot of us were making that assumption but according to Cedric at rtings.com:

This is really a 120hz TV, as you can see from our motion interpolation test. This is surprising, because it is the first time since a long time that Samsung's refresh rate number is real. In 2015, Motion Rate equals the refresh rate for 1080p TVs. For 4k TVs, that number is doubled.

tDog, here is a link to the review referenced - Samsung J6300. If you take into consideration his new scoring system the H6350 and J6300 scored the same. The J6300 is now Samsung's top 1080p television. IMO, it comes down to price and esthetics between the 2014 and 2015 models. Another wildcard may be the Smart TV suite, the 2014 doesn't have the Tizen's operating system - depending on your usage and patience the more established Smart suite from last year may be preferable.

Yeah the pink screen (why pink?) is a common handshake artifact it appears, my old Sony KDS55A3000 used to do it from time to time when switching between inputs and devices. My UN55H6350 does it as well but not as much, usually when swapping between DTV STB and my PS4, just a flicker of it. How long it goes pink must have to do with how long it takes the handshake to happen with whatever device you are using. As long as it disappears after a reasonable boot up period I think you are good.

Samsung UN60H6350 60-Inch 1080p 120Hz 2014 model

Hello everyone,

I think I am in the right place and if so I am looking for some help with my TV. I purchased a Samsung UN60H6350 60-Inch 1080p 120Hz Smart LED TV (2014 Model) on black Friday last year.

The TV worked great up until a few months ago when 3-4 bright spots appeared on my screen that only showed up in lighter colors like a a blue sky, white background or green fields. I contacted Samsung and finally got them to come out and install a whole new front panel.

Now I don't know if my mind is playing tricks on me or what but I can almost swear that my picture quality is not as good as the first front panel I had. I really notice a lot more grainy look to a lot of recordings I had that didn't really show it before and one of the worst things I can see now is when a picture is dark I can see a lot of black blocky pixelation.

I know my panel before looked so much clearer and I can't understand if it has something to do with with this being a new panel and needing the 100 hours to set in or what. Been really bummed out by all this and was trying to calibrate my tv with some settings I read about and nothing seems to satisfy me like my old picture quality did.

Any help and or advice would be greatly appreciated.

Venus-thanks for all the information. I ended up going with the 55" H6350. The price at Best Buy plus a 10% discount swayed me.

Ok, hopefully this question makes sense. So I was watching something on youtube on my Samsung Note 4. Decided to do the screen mirroring to my 55H6350. Got the image just fine, but no sound. I run everything through my Sony Receiver with single HDMI to the TV. So I'm not really able to just adjust the sound on the TV, since it's set up to run through the receiver. Is there a way around this? How do I get sound? Thanks.

That size had two panels. Version number UH02 and TH01. Most likely you had a TH01 and they swapped you out with a UH02. What version number is on the back of your set opposite side of your inputs?

I think you have to use the HDMI ARC feature to get the sound. Someone correct me if I am wrong...When I mirror I do it to my PS4 sound I get AVR sound for it through the Playstation.

I recently purchased a UN55H6350 and my wife is not a fan of the shiny silver stand. Wall mounting the TV is not an option, can I purchase a different Samsung TV stand to use instead? If so any site recommendations?

Thanks

I'm not a fan of the chrome look either. You can scuff them up and paint them, they don't bother me enough at this point but I might be wall hanging mine.

tDog, here is a link to the review referenced - Samsung J6300. If you take into consideration his new scoring system the H6350 and J6300 scored the same. The J6300 is now Samsung's top 1080p television. IMO, it comes down to price and esthetics between the 2014 and 2015 models. Another wildcard may be the Smart TV suite, the 2014 doesn't have the Tizen's operating system - depending on your usage and patience the more established Smart suite from last year may be preferable.
by Robert Wiley, Senior Editor-LCD buying guide

The Samsung UN55J6300 is the top of the line 1080p LED TV in the 2015 lineup at this point. Compared to the J6200 series it has the Micro Dimming Pro - a feature normally reserved for much higher priced TVs. The feature is active and increases contrast depending on the scene displayed on the TV. We give the feature a B rating generally as we have sometimes found it to be distracting due to a blinking effect when scenes make drastic changes in light. One feature downgrade from the H6350 series from last year is that the Motion Rate is reduced to 120 on this model from 240 clear motion rate last year. Motion rate is Sasmung's term for enhanced Hz rate effect, created by the LED edge-lit backlight manipulation. It's somewhat surprising to us that this has been reduced. Granted if the TV panel is actually 60Hz rather than 120Hz, at least the Auto Motion Plus feature will not be as distracting. But this lower Hz rate could cause some motion lag during gaming, fast motion movie scenes and sports.

Just checked on the back of my TV and it was originally HS01

I don't have any cue what the new front panel is the brought me, but it does not look as clear and crisp at all as the old one did.

Can the variance of parts really be that bad to the extent that I notice the worse quality? Even a friend of mine was checking my TV out today and he picked up on the blockyness right off the bat

My "Smart" TV Is Dumber Than a Box of Rocks

It's a U6350... I love the non-existent bezel... the picture quality is outstanding... and it's inter-connectivity SUX!!!

It's hooked into a Sony STR1030DN AV receiver. No matter how much I fool with both the receiver and the TV, things refuse to stay the same. Amongst the aggravations...

a) Power button on TV remote sometimes starts the receiver as well but not always.
b) Power button on receiver remote sometimes starts TV but not always.
c) Volume button on TV remote sometimes controls receiver volume, other time, TV volume... d*mned if I can figure out what changes.
d) Starts in cable position but switches over to TV input arbitrarily... sometimes it doesn't

Might be a compatibility problem between receiver and TV... and thoroughly aggravating... nothing stays the same from one time to the next.

A Samsung receiver with Anynet+ would be the ideal approach.
I would hdmi out to the Samsung & optical to the receiver turning with (Anynet+ = Off)
One more thing, I'm no expert, try a Sony TV
