Not sure this can be fixed, but I bought the 55KS8000 about 4 months ago and the PQ is PERFECT in everyway...zero complaints. It's a FA01 from BB. I recently bought another on sale because of that, but it's an AA02 and doing an A/B comparison, while the viewing angles generally appear to be the same, my issue is with the AA02 and yellow/browns. On static images I stream using DLNA to the set with "PlayTo" on my Win7 machine, the same photos with brownish to yellow or light brown colors turn to ink stain-ish greenish-yellow, where it's hard to detect any brown, looks more like a greenish-yellowish stain (looks even worse with scaled 1080 or smaller res images.) What I know should be yellow looks fine, but what should be brown looks tinted greenish-yellow. Both sets produce brilliant colors, but the AA02 seems to have a very difficult time producing brown. There are other slight differences (like whites look better on the FA01 compared to the AA02), and I think the FA01 I have is much better in general with color reproduction (or at least it was calibrated better) but in terms of light bleed/clouding, etc....zero, no issues at all.
I can't adjust anything when streaming via DLNA but I've poked around when not streaming, which really doesn't do much to adjust the brown yellows. I can't get into the 2/10 point without using HDMI, but even if I did connect something, I'm not sure it would work when using DLNA? Does anyone know if you change the color points, does that change color for DLNA too?
I've attached a sample image here that I'm using -- with the following color on the right hand side, inner box [R: 142 G:127 B:103]. The brown color should be brown and the FA01 shows it's nearly 98% like that while the AA02 shows it as slightly yellow/greenish.
Any ideas? Thanks!
My settings are exactly the same on the FA01 and AA02, with them set to Natural/Standard Color Tone, 6 Backlight / 45 Sharpness / 50 Color / 100 Contrast / etc... The only difference is, the FA01 is using firmware 1154 (works great with it, not updating it anymore) and the AA02 came with 1168. Although, I have a UN40JS6500 that I set Auto Update to off, but it still updated it, which I have to contact Samsung to see if I can flashback back to a previous firmware version, but that's another issue.
