Hi all, new here. Since two weeks I have a 55 inch Ju7000L (European model) and want some help.

I prefer the dynamic settings because the colors pop a lot. But all forums and reviews say the movie mode is much better.

When I set it on movie I don't like the contrast (black and popping colors). I do a lot of day time watching so I need some brightness. What settings should I use?

You can go through my "Picture Settings Guide" for Tips on adjusting the different settings.

(Even though it primarily applies to the JS Series TVs, most of the settings will be the same.)

I have the Samsung TS01 panel. I wish I could help those with IHO2, but the panels appear to be too different. You could try my settings, but I don't know if you will be happy with them or not.
Hello wilgator25, I have a Samsung un75ju7100, purchased 6/7/16, with a US01 panel (supposedly an updated Samsung panel). Would you have calibration settings for this monitor/panel? I greatly appreciate any info you can offer. Thanks, Roland

If you don't have a way to install the JS Mod (see my signature), then go with these

http://www.avsforum.com/forum/166-lcd-flat-panel-displays/1908673-samsung-ju7100-174.html#post39298242

If you want to do the JS Mod, try my Calibration #2 , also in my signature.

The JS Mod is not daunting, but does require patience and following instructions.

I tried the settings someone else gave me here and the Archon X daytime settings. But for me it's not popping at all. I do get more color accuracy but no highlights etc.

My TV is 2016 build date according to the box and serial.

The js mod as far as I see gives you hdr at Amazon? Because in Holland we don't have access to that.

First, go outside and look around. Nature does NOT pop! It looks Natural.

JS Mod is not only for the Amazon HDR. Over to the side, Members noted improved Contrast and Color. Since Amazon HDR seems to be a little short on viewing material, most Members are doing the JS Mode for improved PQ.

Clouding issue

Hello,
Just wanted to provide an update re my latest experiencewith Samsung on the clouding issue on my 75JU7100 TV. The tech came over to my house. After testing in a very bright room :) hedecided that there is nothing wrong with it. I told him that the clouding shows only in a very dark room in a verydark scene. I showed him the pics I tookpreviously. He sent them to SamsungEngineer and then he called him while I am right next to him listening. The Eng reviewed my pics and said that theclouding is within specs and that there is nothing he can do. Of course I complained a lot and he said that if I insist, he willreplace my panel for one time only as with his experience, the new panel willbe worse and there will be no more replacements afterwards. Here goes Samsung QC....... Hearing this made me think I rather live withthe devil I know......He recommended that if the black uniformity bothers me somuch, I should have gone with the FALD scheme.....I then realized that I am allalone with this issue and decided to make the best of it. After the tech left, I banged the back of theTV slightly on the opposite side of the clouding issue. A portion of it went away immediately.......Iwaited few days t see if it coming back and it didn't. Watching movies late at night was almostacceptable to me coming from years with my Panasonic Plasma.... To make darkviewing a bit more pleasant with less clouding and eye strain I decided to addan LED strip at the back of the set for ambient light. That took care of all the issues I have. I can dim the light to my liking and evenwith the dimmest position, I can no longer see any clouding and my viewing experiencehas been enhanced greatly. See picattached showing the initial clouding issue and the ambient light"fix". BTW I am using Calibration #2. Now, if you ask me if I ever by another Samsung product after my experience,I must say that I will as the pic quality of this set is outstanding evenwithout HDR. Color and contrast arefirst rate. I will keep this one untilHDR "war" is settled, more content is available and prices go muchdown. Until then, I LOVE IT!!!

You are correct.

Before you apply the so called JS Mod which is just another way of saying hacking the Advanced Service Menu you might want to be aware that even if you do the mod, just like in Canada, you still won't get Amazon HDR or even the Amazon app on your TV in Holland as it is only available to the United States.

As for these posts from members like @p5browne on this thread and others telling you that "Over to the side, Members noted improved Contrast and Color" and "improved Picture Quality" there are even more outrageous claims by others such as the guy claiming that he gets HDR and WCG on 1080p sources via the Plex app which is technically impossible!

Even @p5browne who up until recently claimed that he got a brighter picture after doing the JS Mod has come to realize the peak nits brightness on his set with or without the JS Mod is identical.

Before you do the JS Mod and risk "bricking" your purchase or voiding your warranty do yourself a favour and read this posts by @ray0414 who will tell you this is nothing but a placebo effect...

http://www.avsforum.com/forum/166-lcd-flat-panel-displays/1990706-2015-samsung-sek-3500u-za-evolution-kit-585.html#post44895346

Although some guys have bought into these effects being real many more guys like @ray0414 who has owned multiple Samsung models including a JS9500 along with owners like @galonzo who owns both an HU9000 and a JS model who has posted side-by-side comparison pictures, can tell you otherwise.

Most interesting of all is that @p5browne -- the biggest advocate of all who has spent many months promoting hacking the SEK-3500 Evo Kit on the above thread -- recently shared that he has removed the JS Mod from his HU9000 stating "the updates have made it look extremely good".

On the other hand some owners of the HU9000 who have performed the JS Mod continue to claim these subjective improvements. This can mean only one thing..... Either @p5browne is wrong or ALL these guys who continue to retain the JS Mod on their HU9000 are seeing nothing more than a PLACEBO EFFECT.

Cheers!

First of all, this is not the HU9000 forums. As to the JS Mod for the JU7100, count me in the placebo effect then.

I have went through several iterations of calibrations on my 7100 prior to the JS Mod. I tried BT 1886 calibrations before the JS Mod but they never resulted in anything more than crushed blacks and loss of detail. @ArchonX had (and still has, in my opinion) the best pre-JS Mod calibration which was Rec 709 with 2.2 Gamma. On a side note, I could care less what my peak NIT is.

Now, after the JS Mod ON MY UN55JU7100 WITH TS01 PANEL (I want to make this perfectly clear because I don't own a HU9000), I can tell you that I DEFINITELY HAVE BETTER BLACKS AND A MUCH BETTER BLACK TO WHITE TRANSITION (AKA GAMMA). I don't have to prove anything that my eyes see.

As to telling someone that this is a placebo effect, let them decide by doing their own visual assessment. If they are not comfortable with the Advanced Service Menu, then perhaps they should pay for a calibration or try one of the calibrations from cnet or rtings.

I am pretty sure @tampa8 and others will agree with what I have said.

As to the thread you linked, there are references about people making others feel inferior that their TV doesn't have the JS Mod and their picture won't look good without it. After I finished laughing out loud.... if someone is upset because another stranger told them their TV won't look good without the JS Mod, then they either need to A) Buy the best TV they can buy (maybe you or @ray0414 can suggest one?), B) Hire an ISF certified calibration specialist, C) Learn how to calibrate, or D) Stop listening to strangers, including me and you.

See this post and let me know if I did any bullying....

Does anyone have before and after measurements with this "JS mod?" Otherwise, it's all just anecdotal evidence.
Anecdotal evidence: based on personal observation, case study reports, or random investigations rather than systematic scientific evaluation

When someone can provide you with x/y/Y values for Absolute Black (16 for Limited RGB and 0 for Full RGB), then perhaps you could give measurements on how the JS Mod (or firmware updates, if you believe those change picture quality) improves Contrast and Brightness. But, since Absolute Black cannot be measured (*** with an i1 Display Pro or i1 Pro 2 ***), I don't believe you will find systematic scientific evaluation that proves or disproves what users such as myself see.

Yeah, but black levels can be measured, as can contrast. I don't remember exactly what I got for mine, but black level was somewhere around 0.035 cd/m^2 (with smart led off). If I did the mod and saw significantly lower black levels, I'd agree there is improvement.

Ok, I need to revise my previous post to include that I can't measure Absolute Black with my i1 Display Pro or i1 Pro 2.

i1 Pro 2: Luminance Measurement range: 0.2 cd/m2 to 1,200 cd/m2

i1 Display Pro: Luminance Measurement Range: 0.1 cd/m2 to 1,000 cd/m2

Interesting experience with my 60JU7100

About a month ago

I bought the Samsung 60JU7100 at a large retail chain that was selling their 2015 store display models
It was priced at $399

I wasnt even looking for a TV ..but thought for the price why not
So..the store had it hooked up to an antenna feed
They could not find the one connect box...so they discounted the price down to $359
I wasnt that concerned since I searched Ebay while I was in the store and saw that I could buy a one connect box with cable for $60( delivered)

So..any way..I get the Tv home ..put it in a spare bedroom and everything is fine
I have an extra Denon receiver sitting in the closet and some speakers ...so I decide to make it a 2.1 set up and user the ARC on the Denon

This is where things got wonky
As a point a few days ago when I tried to turn on the TV....all I got was clicking and the TV would periodically turn on and off
I called Samsung customer support and they stepped me through some procedures
While I had them on the phone I disconnected the one connect box from the TV( and the chain of the Denon receiver) and the 60JU7100 turned right on
hmmm
I turned this in as a warranty claim and Samsung is sending me another one connect box
But I am 99% sure the issue was with the Denon receiver..it is an E400


Interestingly enough
I connected it all back together and things have worked fine for at least a week now

anyone have issues using ARC with this TV?

For me ARC has been hit or miss. Some firmware versions it worked fine, then another version would cause issues. I've finally stopped using it and have stuck with optical.

Since you have it working now this probably isn't an issue, but you do have the correct OCB, right? This TV does not use the full size One Connect Box, but instead uses what they call the OCB Mini. Just had to ask... :)

yes

from the description on the Ebay item I bought
BN96-35817B One Connect Mini WITH CABLE



Samsung is sending me another unit under warranty
However...as I said before I am 99% sure the issue was with the Denon receiver


and now that you mention it...;)
I had done a update( prompted by the TV)...and then I had issues with the TV not wanting to turn on when connected to ARC
But again...for the last week it has been fine
