As promised, here are a couple iPhone 6 photos of my display.... Any comments? While maybe not PERFECT, it looks pretty clean to me.

I got my 2nd replacement today and barely any visible banding. So after 3 Tv's I finally won the XBR lottery.

I do have a small pinch of light bleed on the bottom right. I recall someone had posted where you can try rubbing it to remove it, but can't find that post in the search.
Hoping someone can post some tips on removing it if possible so I don't make anything worse by doing it wrong.

I have a picture here from google which is not from my TV, but is the same type and amount of light bleed to show as an example.

Looks a lot better then mine, it may be time to try another one from Best Buy. My return window is up on the 15th. Thanks for the photo, if anyone else has one to share it would be a big help. Thanks.

That looks like a defect in the lamination of the layers like something is pinching it there. You could try massaging it with a clean micro-fiber cloth, but that may be beyond help.

Thanks for the info as I looked it up more after you posted and I read there's a chance it might make it worse. I am going to leave it as is after going through 3 tv's to get this one at least the problem is a small bleed isolated in a corner.

Clouding

So unfortunately after 5 days of using my new 850C I noticed a slight clouding issue..

I never noticed it at all while watching anything until my wife paused our Apple TV right after starting a new episode on the black screen. The picture below makes it look slightly worse than it does in person because the camera in my phone overexposed it but you get the idea..

Is this what people were talking about minimizing by rubbing the screen with a microfiber cloth? What kind of pressure were you applying?

If you never see it while watching normal content, I don't know why you'd worry about it.

Look at the troubleshooting tab in the FAQ, search for clouding for description of the "wipe" process and potential issues trying it.

Yeah that's pretty minor but similar to what I had and I tried the micro-fiver cloth rubbing treatment and it seemed to help reduce it and smooth it out.

Hey Virtual,

I spray a detail spray on my screen every couple of weeks to dust it with a Micro-Fiber cloth and I have zero Banding or Noise/Bleeding issues. I just don't like a dusty screen...I always do it in the Off position though.

BTW...what album is that in your Avatar? You must be a Bass freak... I enjoy it too....trying to find out what that album is about

Thanks,
Larry

Here's what I've seen on the X850C threads...All of this is in the HDR FAQ tab in the X850C FAQ in my sig.

I think HDR is doomed to failure before it even starts just from eyestrain.
Below are a couple of posts on this subject from King Richard which are interesting and related to your question about NITS.

It does not mean that other HDR ready TVs (like the X850C series) will not be able to display HDR but only that they will not be able to display the Logo.

In other words, the HDR capable/ready TVs (again, like our X850Cs) that can't reach 1000 nits brightness will still be able to display HDR content but the ""specular highlights won't be as bright.

As far as Rec.2020 color space is concerned, the specs. don't say that a TV has to reach 100% of the Rec.2020 (no modern display can do that, it's not possible). It simply states that the TV needs to accept a Rec.2020 color space signal.

It further stipulates that, in order to have a licence to display the “Ultra HD Premium” logo, it needs to be able display over 90% of the DCI P3 spec. DCI P3 is only 72.9% of Rec.2020. Therefore, 90% of P3 would be less than 70% of the Rec.2020 color gamut.

Color Palette (Wide Color Gamut)

* Signal Input: BT.2020 color representation
* Display Reproduction: More than 90% of P3 colors

For instance, HDR is about capturing/displaying/seeing a lot more details both in the bright parts of the Image as well as the dark parts of the image (shadow details). And it is also about better, brighter, more saturated and vibrant ""true-to-life"" colors, and is closely related to a wider color gamut (WCG) and color depth (bits).

The ""Color Space"" is a 2 dimensional measurement of the color (chroma); the brightness (luminance/luma) or HDR is the third dimension. When you combine both HDR and WCG (luma+chroma) you get a three dimensional measurement called ""Color Volume"". When you increase the dynamic range, you can increase the brightness of an image without 'washing out' the colors.

For example, if you are trying to display a bright blue sky with fluffy white clouds on a SDR (standard dynamic range) display and you want to increase the brightness on the sky, the blue will 'wash out' and quickly start fading into white and the clouds will start 'disappearing'. However, if you increase the dynamic range, then you have a lot more 'headroom' to play with and therefore you can increase the brightness a lot more while still retaining the saturation of the blue.

The same goes for the ""lower end"" of the dynamic range. You can decrease/lower the brightness a lot more before the dark grays fade into black and you start losing all the 'shadow detail'. The same applies to the ""middle"" of the dynamic range as well (which is also ""stretched""), resulting in better, brighter, more saturated colors.
And Civuck had an interesting HDR post here: https://www.avsforum.com/forum/166-lc...l#post40336970

I would venture to say that all properly calibrated displays are not done with settings that push the display to its maximum brightness potential. If anything, properly calibrated displays often get accused of being too dark.

So where does that leave us? I think LG makes a stronger - if not more realistic- argument for HDR by promoting the "dark end" of the brightness scale, where OLED really excels. If viewers, for comfort reasons, are just going to dial back those 1000 nit capable displays - what's the value of that capability? I think there will be more value - at least in common lighting environments - in being able to resolve and convey more detail in the darker areas of the image.

Larry, what is "detail spray"? I'm afraid to spray anything on screen and have only been using Micro-Fiber cloth..
If you could provide details (pun intended) of what you use I would appreciate it..

Don't know....you could try:

Change batteries in the remote

Power cycling the TV again

Yeah tried that, powered off the TV and when I turn back on, it only lands on the screen where the touch remote displays, i'm frustrated more than anything else right now

Gerry,

Detail Spray is what I use to wipe my car off instead of washing it. Unless my car is really dirty from many miles in the rain, I use Detail Spray to clean my car in 15 minutes instead of an hour to wash it. Not only does it clean it but it leaves a protective film after it dries. Feels like you just waxed your car.

The spray can be found in Automotive Parts stores. Meguiar's makes a good one. I use "Perfect Detail" by PPC (over $30/gal...not cheap).... but they are all very similar.

As mentioned I use this stuff to wipe off my Sony because it cleans it and leaves it more impervious to dust collecting. It can even remove very very fine scratches....

Looking forward to 4 great Pro Football games on the 75" torch this weekend! Still loving my Sony...even with all the discussion about HDR....I think this set rocks with Sports!! Just got to get'er dialed in!!

Cheers!
Larry

Larry, you've got a set of b*lls for sure!! How did you ever get the courage to spray something like that on a TV screen? The chemicals in it won't bother/deteriorate the coating on the screen? Do you spray it directly on the screen or on a Micro-fiber towel and then rub the screen?
Yes, looks to be some good games this weekend! If I may ask, what are you using for Motionflow on your set? Currently i'm using "standard" and it seems to do a pretty good job.
Thanks, Gerry

Sorry - meant to say unplug, leave it unplugged for 30 minutes or so, and then plug in again. I didn't make that clear when I said "power cycle."

Also, this is a screen where you are being asked to pair the touch remote w/the TV?

Have you tried just hitting "Home" or "TV" or Back on the regular remote at that point to see what happens?

I'm not completely clear what screen you are getting stuck on - maybe post a picture of it.

the FAQ lists this mount and a great option but it says only up to 70' tv. Will it work with the 75 version of this tv?

sadly I cannot post a direct link to it since i must have 5 or greater posts and I have 3.
I have mounted two XBR 75 850 C tvs on those mounts and in my opinion this is the best mount under 250.00 that you can buy so what are you waiting for?

Im hoping for this as well. Even though the 2016 HDR models are coming I still would rather have a 75" screen upgrade over my 60" that I have right now at the right price! What was the BF price on this, $2999.99?

Yes that is what it went down to during black friday. I know on amazon even after black friday it did fluctuate between $3499 and $2999 even after black friday for a few weeks.

On my 2nd replacement I have clouding and corner light bleed on the bottom right. I tried the micro fiber rub technique outlined in dana's FAQ and it did not do much for it unfortunately.
I read the bias lighting section and gave it a shot by ordering a $60 set from amazon. When I have it on the clouding and light bleed cannot be seen. I guess the added brightness behind the screen hides these defects fairly well so if anyone was considering getting bias lighting just be aware this can also hide some of the slight defects you might have on the screen as an added bonus.

I purchased this set

and it came out looking like this

Bias lighting is the secret sauce of home TV happiness. Congrats, that looks excellent.

How do I bye pass this?

Initialize the Touch Pad Remote by following the below article.

You could also bypass this screen by hitting the "BACK" button on the IR remote.

Arc

Anyone know how to enable ARC on this tv? I bought a Vizio surround sound system and have put the HDMI cable from out on the sound bar to HDMI 4 on the tv. I switched the sound bars input to HDMI but I'm not getting any sound. I also switched the tv to audio system instead of tv speakers. Am I missing something? Does the HDMI to my cable source go to the sound bar in the 'in' input? If so, how will my other source components have sound? Do I need to get a receiver too? I was trying to avoid it until I can get one that will definitely play well with the upcoming UHD blu ray players. Please advise.

Would help if you clarify all of the devices in your setup. Just the TV, sound bar, and sounds like a DVR, or ?
