A white 6500k light behind the tv (on wall with a neutral paint color) can do a few things. It can trick your eyes into seeing richer colors and improved contrast. It can also make blooming less noticeable. In a pitch black room it can also reduce eye strain during extended viewing.Bias lighting. So that is how is called. What is the difference between these and the ones with multicolor?
So you or your nephew where messing around in the service menu? If so you should try doing a factory reset and maybe that would change everything back to where it should be. Who know's where you are or what you did in the service menu.Unfortunately I had my newthew pretending that knows from service menu stuff,you all understand how it end up
Well I hope AAFES give one Hell of a discount because their return window sucks.Hi everyone! I got my 65 inch Q80R a few weeks ago. I have noticed that when watching movies, my TV will dim parts of the screen erratically. It could be a bright scene or dark scene, doesn't matter.. It almost looks like flickering black clouds or "inking" on different parts of the screen at random. It isn't consistent with the scene of the movie. For example, in Jojo Rabbit, there's a scene with a light blue wall in the background. Portions of that blue wall all of the sudden start to have what looks like a black clouds bouncing from left to right of the screen.
I tried to return the TV, but AAFES only has a 15 day return policy on TVs over 60 inches. I called on day 19... Samsung wants to send out a company to service it. The service company says they'd replace the panel, but to be aware that the replacement panels are much lower quality than the originals.. I'm lost here. I'm trying to find out if anyone else has experienced what I've described, and if so, how did you fix it? I'm also wondering if anyone has had experience with replacement panels in their Q80R, and how it compares to the original...
Sorry for the long post, I feel like I'm getting screwed here by these companies and wanted to turn to other owners to see if you all had some advise.
Luckily I just received word from AAFES that they are issuing a refund and taking the TV back (at their expense and pickup from my house). It sucks that there were no replacement Q80R TVs available. Any recommendations on a TV to buy since they don't have the same one available?Well I hope AAFES give one Hell of a discount because their return window sucks.
Anyway Samsungs Warranty for your TV states.
SAMSUNG will repair or replace this product, at our option and at no charge as stipulated herein, with new or reconditioned parts or products if found to be defective during the limited warranty period specified above. All replaced parts and products become the property of SAMSUNG and must be returned to SAMSUNG. Replacement parts and products assume the remaining original warranty, or ninety (90) days, whichever is longer.
So your warranty repair should give you a new or recondition "Q80r " panel. So if the service company says that the replacement panel is going to be of a much lower quality, then it isn't a Q80r panel. If the panel isn't for the Q80r (or Q90r, and some of the 2020 T series) it won't have the Ultra Viewing Angle & Anti Reflection coats. And if your tv panel is is missing those features, well then you basically have an overpriced Q70r.
I would call Samsung and let them know what the service company told you. You are concerned that after the warranty work you TV may no longer have the Ultra Viewing Angle & Anti Reflection features, the main reasons why you purchased the Q80r over the Q70r.
Just check in the app and run time is shown for mine.Does anyone know how to check the elapsed hours on this TV... I seen a few videos on Samsung sets but they are older LED sets with remotes that have numbers on them. These new remotes are much different, you have to press another button to see colors and numbers. Someone said it was in Smart Things, but I don't see it in the Smart Things App.
It popped up for me and I was like, what? oh well, who cares. I haven't seen it again though.
