Just got the 82 delivered today, set it up on its stand just to see if I'm keeping it before mounting. Yep, it's a keeper. Sure I can see some issues already, but they are minor and mostly can be fixed with settings. Like if you switch between sports highlights and a music video on youtube for instance you might have to mess with the motion settings to get a better look. Honestly though that's streaming and I'm already prepared to deal with some artifacts.

Used some settings from this thread for SDR and HDR and just streaming on netflix I can see a huge difference in quality from stock. SDR 1080 streams went from grainy and ugly to quite pleasing and similar to my projector.

Only have a ps4pro and have been playing some Horizon and GOW and wow do those games look amazing.

After a while I stopped realizing I was looking at a giant LCD and just felt like I was watching my projector again. That's a win for me, now if only that ps4pro wasn't so DAMN LOUD.

This is one of my negatives about HDR on the NU8000.

The only way I can confirm it works is if I got to home>settings>picture and check the settings. I have my HDR settings slightly different vs my non-HDR. It is 100% accurate though.
I agree with you. I hope they can fix this in the next firmware version. I actually love love this tv. Once you have the settings correct it looks beautiful. Who cares of it's an edge lit. Samsung makes the best edge it. I have a great panel. No DSE nothing. I just wish Samsung can upgrade the next firmware so all we have to do is press a button to see if we are viewing in HDR. Also, why is it that I can only view the display banner on a source. How come I can't see what my apps are playing in like example 1920 x 1080p etc. There is no display banner for apps only for external sources.

Maybe I'am stupid here but do any 4ktvs have a function where I can change the resolution. For instance. Let's say I am playing a game on my PS4 slim. I know it's not a 4k unit but do tvs have where I can change what resolution I want to play in like 1080p or 4k etc. Why can't I change the resolution? This applies to movies to. Anyone? Thx

Well the TV was delivered today..... minus part of the stand and the power cord. Disappointing... now working with Best Buy to get these parts...gonna be 5-8 days.
Never again will I trust them on an open box. Hopefully they make it right. They said they'd knock another $50 off for my trouble.


Can't find the power button .. the manual shows it under the bottom right side of TV but all see is a what looks like a little sensor that sticks out a little - probably ambient light sensor or remote sensor.


Can anyone tell me where the actual on/off button is located on the 75" NU8000?

It's on the very bottom of that bump that sticks out, that houses the power status LED. Push it up into the bump, basically. It will pop up a display on the screen for power off, switch input and some other functions.

If you have an iPhone or Android, download the SmartThings app — it should be a better remote too boot.

I actually found the smart remote to be pretty good. It takes a few days of using it to get used to it but it's pretty intuitive. Much faster than getting the phone out, finding the app etc. IMHO.



My wife on the other hand hates it - she's the type of person that likes one button for one function... although she's starting to get the hang of it and is using the voice command section like a pro.


I have an Harmony elite/Hub remote setup that was powering my old theatre room setup, and the intention was to hook it up with the NU8000 etc. but at this stage I haven't bothered - the ARC hookup with my Yamaha YSP2700 sound projector/PS4 and Xbox is working well enough.

Are you guys using the Tizen system or did anyone add on a Roku or other platforms? I think the tizen sucks not enough apps. I was thinking getting the fire 4k cube, Roku or the apple 4k. What do you guys think? Also I love the smart remote though. If I switch to the roku or other platforms can I still use the Samsung smart remote or no? I am assuming I probably cant. Anyone?

Just purchased an nu8000 and I'm not sure if this is an issue or normal.

When there is a bright object on a dark background and I pan my eyes I get a red/blue rainbow effect. It's quite annoying as it is but it's when I turn on black fram insertion that it gets unbearable

I have a picture but cant post a link


Am I just hyper sensitive to this?

I wanted to alert the group about an issue I found with the Fios client boxes, model IPC1100. When I set up my NU8000 in early March, I hadn't completed my media room so I ran the Fios cable directly to the NU8000 to test it. I ran the channel scan to pick up any available channels. The pictures was great on the on the NU8000. Fast forward two weeks ago when I finally finished my Media room and connected my Fios client box to the TV. Suddenly the picture was very soft and looked like standard def picture. My other sources looked great,(Roku, UHDVD), I contacted Fios and had them send me a new Client box. I connected that box and the set up screen said weak signal.

Now I started to question the Cable wire I ran when I did my build. So I went out and bought a brand new Cable and ran it directly to the Fios splitter and the results were the same soft picture. I then took the DVR box from my family room and connected that to the NU8000 and the picture was great.

I contacted Fios support and they ran me through their first level test scripts that I had already had done on my own. They sent me to second level support next. I explained all of the testing I had completed and he asked me again to swap the DVR with the Client box to confirm the DVR had a better picture. Once I completed that task he informed me that he wanted to confirm that the issue I was having was a known issue with the IPC1100 client boxes had with 4k tv's and they were getting a firmware ready to push out to those boxes soon.

So if your Fios client boxes produced a soft un-High Def picture it's most likely the issue that impacts the signal level of the IPC1100.

My set up: Samsung UN82nu8000 LED TV, Marantz SR7012, Emotiva XPA3, Sony UBP-X800
Roku 4k Premier, Panamax MR4000, 2 Marantz MA-500U, Klipsch RB81II (L/R),
RC62II (center), R-1650-W (surrounds), RB61II (Rear Surrounds),
Monoprice 6.5" in ceiling speaker (top front/rear), Two Klipsch R-10SW subwoofer

Hey guys! I recently bought a 65NU8009 as it was on sale. I noticed some thin vertical bands while playing Spider-Man on PS4 and panning across the sky. It's not too bad, but it's noticeable. Apart from that, I didn't notice anything else. No dead/stuck pixels, no clouding, no DSE. Picture quality is excellent, especially for the price.

There's one very annoying issue though: the clicking/cracking noises.

I've read about it before buying and experiences seem to vary from "no clicking/cracking at all" to "constantly clicking/cracking" so I decided to give it a try. Obviously I can't directly compare it to others but I briefly spent some time with a 55NU8009 and 55Q6F (2018) and didn't notice anything standing out.

While it does seem to settle down after a while, it does take some time (I'd say roughly an hour, while cracking rather frequently) but it never seems to stop entirely. Drastically increasing the backlight, when switching to HDR for example, and then switching back to SDR will make it increase in frequency again. I'm pretty confident it's heat expansion as turning the TV off also makes it crack again every now and then for like an hour. I'm not sure if it's coming from the plastic back cover or directly from inside the panel, though. Loosening or tightening the screws from the stand doesn't seem to do much. I can't say when the TV/panel has been manufactured exactly, but the screen had a protective film with a sticker on it that says, among lots of other things, "20181102xxxxxx" which may refer to a date.



TLDR: Are the clicking/cracking noises from the back cover/panel still a wide spread issue? Would it be worth exchanging it or would it very likely just be the same? Is there anything else that can be done to somehow at least alleviate this?

I can confirm this as well. Enabling "High Contrast" in the Accessibility menu makes it pretty obvious as the menu becomes mostly white icons and text on black background. Enabling BFI amplifies it further. I'm guessing it could be a side-effect from using PFS phosphor to increase the color gamut. I've heard before that this can cause such artefacts. Apparently Quantum Dots don't have this issue. I don't think I noticed it in actual content, even though I tried looking for it.

I posted about the exact same issue back on March 29th. I still currently have the second set after returning the first one due to the clicking/popping noises, but a month later the second set, manufactured in January 2019, is still clicking away every time I turn it on. Sometimes it takes 5-10 minutes before it starts and sometimes it's right from the start. If I turn it on with my Xbox One running, the clicking will begin almost immediately.

I thought it was only with 55" sets but to read it's also with 65" is truly upsetting. It's very possible that the majority of people wouldn't hear the clicking if sitting 8 to 10 feet away with the sound turned up. But when sitting close and using it as a PC monitor in a quiet room, the clicking/crackling/popping is definitely noticeable until it starts to subside after an hour or so. It amazes me though that nothing has been done about this by Samsung since people started complaining about it approximately 11 months ago. The set I have has virtually no vertical banding or any other major issues like excessive blooming, so I'm still undecided right now in what to do.

I've got some time to return it as I bought it at Costco, but there's no other set out there in its price range here in Canada that I've tried that compares to it video and sound quality wise. I returned both a Vizio P series and Sony 900F set due to vertical banding and blooming issues, so do I simply put up with the clicking noise and hope that it eventually stops months down the road?

thank you for the reply. the last TV I bought was before LED and was unaware of PWM refresh rates and I'm disappointed to see this has flickering even at full brightness. kind of wish I went with the nu7100 instead. the red shift is fine as ill never have the TV at a low enough brightness to notice it. just glad to hear its not a defect.


with the problem you have with the clicking, I haven't noticed anything with my unit but when I get home tonight I will power it on and listen for it. I sit about 5 feet from the screen

Hello all. Long time since visited this site. Anyway, new owner of a 55" NU8000. Had the 49" but returned for the 120 hz panel. Loving the display so far but a couple of things need some help on. Many scenes whether HDR or regular cable programs seem very dark. What is the best way to increase the picture (i.e. brightness, back light or is there something I'm missing)? Also when I see "HDR mode" referred to on here what do they mean? Unless they are talking about the settings for 4K/HDR. Lastly, for the life of me I cannot get the resolution to show up anywhere. Is there a trick to this? I have no "info" button that I can see and highlighting "Cablevision/HDMI 1" does not show it as some have said. Thanks in advance to all.

I have the 55" as well and don't have any issue with scenes being too dark. Make sure in the Settings/General/External Device Manager that you have HDMI UHD Color selected for each source you have connected that's capable of running in 4K. If you're using a gaming console, you'll also want to enable Game Mode for the lowest input lag.
When it comes to picture settings it will be totally up to you in what you prefer, but if you're finding things too dark try out Contrast Enhancer on low to start. If you don't want to use that then bump up the gamma by 1 or 2 and then maybe drop the brightness by 1 if it looks too washed out. When it comes to 4K gaming HDR content my backlight and contrast are at 50, brightness at -1, local dimming on high, contrast enhancer on low, color space at auto, and my color setting is at 42 as I enjoy slightly more vivid colors. If I'm watching a 4K movie, I'll drop color down to 17 or so.

Everyone of us will have our preferences, but the set should definitely get bright enough for you if you play around with it a bit. To get the info banner to appear, simply select the source you're using with the home key and then click on the round black button on the remote. The banner will then appear a second or two later at the top of the screen with the info you're looking for. Hope this helps.

Make sure in the Settings/General/External Device Manager that you have HDMI UHD Color selected for each source you have connected that's capable of running in 4K. If you're using a gaming console, you'll also want to enable Game Mode for the lowest input lag.

Thank you for the detailed response. Color Enhancer was my next move but hadn't thought of bumping up the gamma. A lot of your other info confirmed what I was doing also. Thanks again.

I am excited for the automatic game mode switch on this tv (its annoying to have to turn on game-mode everytime I switch to the ps4/xbox one s then turn it off when I want to watch tv), but does the tv automatically turn it off when you open netflix/vudu/pop in a 4K blu-ray on the xbox one s or the ps4? Does it work with a receiver or do you have to plug in the PS4/Xbox into the tv?
I also own the JU7100 and I am thinking about Upgrading to the NU8000. How would you say the 2 compare? Does the NU8000 completely blow it out of the water?

Many scenes whether HDR or regular cable programs seem very dark. What is the best way to increase the picture (i.e. brightness, back light or is there something I'm missing)? Also when I see "HDR mode" referred to on here what do they mean? Unless they are talking about the settings for 4K/HDR. Lastly, for the life of me I cannot get the resolution to show up anywhere. Is there a trick to this? I have no "info" button that I can see and highlighting "Cablevision/HDMI 1" does not show it as some have said. Thanks in advance to all.
See people get confused. You dont really need 120hz panel unless you are using the tv as a monitor hooked up to your computer. .60hz does just fine with movies and video games. I dont know why people keep thinking that oh if it's not 120hz panel the tv sucks. There is no content that plays 120hz. 60hz does just fine for everything except using it as a computer monitor. I mean is 120 better of course but watching movies and playing games you wont see a difference.
Also, why cant we find out what the resolution is running on certain apps. Like Hulu for instance. I press info and ot doesnt tell give me a banner display only the source does which is rediculous. How do I know when something is being played in 1080p, 720p etc in apps? Anyone?

Does contrast enhancer increase input lag? I have always been curious about that?

There appear to be varying opinions on that. Some people say it adds up to 15ms of input lag while others say it's a reactive process which adds none. I personally haven't noticed any major difference between having it on or off when it comes to input lag, but simply prefer the look of games with it on low compared to having it off and trying to adjust the gamma and brightness separately as I can't seem to get the same pop to the gaming picture.

Yes it's probably throwing the color's off slightly and over-enhancing some bright areas but not enough to make me stop using it. I don't play first person shooters online so I have no idea if you'd notice a difference there, but in the high speed racing game called Redout my times are virtually identical with it on or off.

The NU8000 is definitely better but TBD I don't think the NU8000 completely blows it out of the water. I would say maybe a 40% increase in quality on average (HDR is probably a 100% increase since the JU7100 doesn't have true HDR). I do sometimes miss the direct lit backlight of the JU7100 and I felt that the JU7100 motion is a tad better (maybe I just haven't played with the settings enough which is why).

I got the 65" NU8000 for $900 and at that price I think its 10000% worth it. Anything above $1,000 I would start looking at some higher end models that come on sale for only $200ish more.

NOT NORMAL. It looks as the back cover is not snapped into the frame correctly. I suggest you ask for an exchange.
