image retention ???
Has anyone had image retention issues with the 65MU8000 ?
I just upgraded from an old UN55C7000 and done some preliminary calibration tweaks. Out of the box, the set crushed anything approaching black, had that showroom crackling glow, and everything that should be yellow was orange.
I managed to get it pretty dang good by turning off all the special image-degrading features, and setting contrast at 95 with brightness in the middle. I followed some color settings derived from averaging a few that I found out there in 'net land. Now it looks fine - as good or better than the old set. Better contrast, I'd say. Still could improve the color, but at least it's close.
Imagine my horror, though, when I finally sat down to watch Avatar on Blu-ray. There is a band of crazy brown mucky pixels all the way across, about 8 inches above the bottom of the set, and about 8 inches tall. Image retention after such a short time??? I soooooo hope not.
Any comments or a link to determining what went wrong is most welcome!
