i got this....

http://www.costco.com/Browse/Product.aspx?Prodid=11746329&whse=BC&Ne=4000000&eCat=BC|90607|2341&N=4047302&Mo=22&No=1&Nr=P_CatalogName:BC&cat=74672&Ns=P_Price|1||P_SignDesc1&lang=en-US&Sp=C


when the pic pans across the sky or a wall, i can see light spots or streaks in the pic. its very dim, but its always there. its like a veil thats always there, but sometimes it harder to see than other times. when the picture pans, its easier to see. i can easily see it when i load the Netflix app, when theres a lot of red on the screen. i can also see it on close ups of peoples faces, esp if they move around a bit


thoughts? i already missed the 30 day return option, but i do have a 5 year warranty for it.


i was thinking maybe i could use the screen scrubber/pixel flipper, or whatever its called, thats part of Disneys WOW calibration disc. i have no clue if that will work, im new too all this


thanks

and when the screen is showing lots of white, the white looks blotchy, or cloudy. its very dim, but its always there. its like a veil thats always there, but sometimes it harder to see than other times. when the picture pans, its easier to see

Did you buy it from Costco? According this their return policy is 90 days for TVs, and, in my experience, you can generally talk with them and get them to accept returns on electronics even beyond that point.


Could you post any pictures or photos of what you're seeing? Almost sounds like what some of the folks around here call the "dirty screen effect", but it's hard to say.

yes, i did buy my tv from Costco. i bought it online and i thought i read that i had 30 days to return it to a store, but ill double check.... thanks


heres some pics of other peoples TVs that kinda look like what my tv is doing, but mine looks more blotchy or cloud shaped vs streaks or perfect circles. mine also doesnt look as noticeable, but im worried it will get worse over time

What settings have have you tried changing , such as reducing the backlighting, for picture mode you are using on the TV?

Do you possibly still have the store/retail settings with which the TV's ship instead of one of the Home modes in use?

those photos show vertical and horizontal banding, which is usually a LCD panel issue... all you can do for that is exchange the TV for another of the same model or consider another brand/model

heres what i have it set to, but ive played with all of these, which doesnt do much for the problem im having


Picture Mode = Custom


Backlight = in the middle


Contrast = same


Brightness = same


Color = same


Tint = same


Sharpness = same


Color Temp = Natural


Ambient Light Sensor = off


all other processing = off


there is a mode for Home or Store, i have it set to Home


i just checked my paperwork, i do have 90 days to return it


my BluRay player is supposed to be here Thursday. ill see how it looks with that

Your pics appeasr only show the backlighting, I suggest that you lower the backlighting more and that you set the sharpness to 0. Then check with a program image on the screen and try your contrast and brightness settings.

I'm very sure the OP has either banding like in the pics or DSE... not something that picture settings can fix.

In any case it is a screen uniformity issue or DSE and cannot be fixed by changing picture settings.

Reducing the backlighting can reduce the effects of banding. Setting the sharpness to 0 will not effect bandingt but can eliminate artifacts.

Since you have a 120Hz unit do you have motion compensation enabled? If no set it to a low value which can reduce image blur especially diuring panning scenes.

Have you tried the presets for any other home mode besides Custom?

Plasma may mean SDE (Screen Door Effect) and not DSE.

like I said this is most likely a screen uniformity issue (panel and/or backlight based) and so it won't go away by lowering backlight since all that will do is make the whole screen dimmer, not more uniform


it could also be the dirty screen effect which has to do with the AR/AG coating on the screen being unevenly applied

Since the problem is most noticable when theri is a lot of white mytrain of thought is that the screenis too bright and should be reduced by lowering the backlighting and possibly changing the brightness or contrast.

With the representative 600 x450 jpg images in his post it is hard to really see the problem.


The following interesting post lists one users efforts to change and fix his system settings .

yesterday i returned the Vizio and picked up the Samsung UN50EH6000, a backlit LED tv from Costco and sure enough, theres a big light spot, about the size of a human head, right in the middle of the screen


in disbelief, once again
