I have the KS8005 .. 65 ..
Sadly i have got some problems with it.
Remote stops working. ( then it works, a quick press, on the start button and tv is on. The little red light blinks, then a button is pressed.) but some times the remote dont work. then i press the on button, nothing happens. and the red light is also dead. After some testing i figured out, if i press the on button for 15-30 sec it comes to life and the red diod blinks then i press something. ( tv can be started if i press the on button under the tv. I have ofc changed batteries, tested remote handshaking automatic and manual. it shows up as connected on tv. this is my third smart remote from samsung, all of them have the same problem. i have now bought a standard samsung remote to se if the problem still remains.. its been for days so far, and no problems with it. Any idea about this problem ? it looks like the remotes are bad, perhaps a bad shipment.
or can tv lock the remote ?. It should start right ?? turn on in any case. According to samsung, there is no power saving function on the remote.
Samsung support can't explain this... Well they can't explain anything really. After the last time i spoke to them, i thought perhaps it was the same person that
designed the remote, as the samsung burning phone. its good then it works, but can also ...........
I also changed panel, two times. one has a vertical bar 15 cm in from the right side. could be seen depending the content. Technician said it wasn't dead pixels or bleed
but something in the panel was not correct assembled, They there reluctant to change it out at first. because it could onley be seen in some situations. But i don't buy a
premium product and accept these kind of problems. The second one has horizontal lines at the bottom of the panel. Could be seen depending of the content, pc use etc. Samsung must have a fantastic quality control. Then i did get the panel replaced.. it looked fine, but now i can see a faint bar on the right side again.
barely visible, but now, i know its there. About the same 15 cm in from the right and 10-15 long Any ideas about this ?
I know its a panel lottery..the next one can be worse. //minimal light bleed and no dead pixels. The 2017 samsung lineup have better build quality, metal insted of plastic etc. The back cover can sometimes not be pressed on correctly. if you get a tv that have this problem. you can press it on by your self .. it has clips under and the backplate.
should not sway when pressed. And of course it should not have left the factory like that. // my tv had that problem, on the right side, opposite to the connections..
Another thing that is worth mentioning, Tv wants to change hdmi port automatically then new hardware is turned on. receiver,xbox etc .And that function can't be turned off.. it's sad to be a feature of this tv. but if you look at the news, and turn on the receiver and the tv cuts off the feed, and goes to the receiver.... that's stupid..
tv and receiver hdmi control etc.. wont solve this problem.
Anyone had luck turning this off in service menu ?
And if you change the name of the hdmi ports.. tv changes them back... i let a samsung technician remote control the tv. and he could se in real time that it changed
the name of the ports. i asked if he could mail - contact samsung main office so, these bugs get sorted. his response was that they couldn't do that. And he could not say if they new about the problems. I sad, im not alone about this .. this needs to be sorted but ..no... . (firmware 1165)
On the plus side..
Motion plus seams to be better optimized.. in auto . minimal soap opera effect. Keeping the backlight upp.. helps.
and Samsung will add HLG in future firmware.
