Hello , I have an 8605 3d ready I bought last year and just now was trying the 3d , I want to see if it works fine or I have some problem so I downloaded the video and loaded with the ps3 , useless to say it didnt load so I downloaded a free app and reconverted to mp4 , then loaded the video and a list of numbers appeared , I set the side to side 3d setting and I can always see the numbers just slight darker one and slight darker the other , if I set to cinema , they tend to disappear the first numbers also if I decrease luminosity , in equal measure , it doesn't seem to be like right eye different from the left I mean with left I see a certain degree of the left sequence and darker the right and viceversa in same way ... do I have a problem ? shoudl the whole set of numbers be invisible? or is ok if the first numbers only get invisible?
Ok I have made severall tests I made also a almoust 50 balanced settings , in severall stuff , I took off the perfect contrast and I saw made a significant difference turnng on light sensor ....
then I set the image setting to standard , and the following are the results
Warm screen :
Crosstalk test movie:
Left eye open/right closed -> top half screen smaller visible number -> 27
Left eye open/right closed -> bottom half screen smaller visible number -> 60
Right eye open/left closed -> top half screen smaller visible number -> 60
Right eye open/left closed -> bottom half screen smaller visible number -> 27
now I must say I am slight miopy on left eye anyway , this is for a fully readable number , but I still saw slight number image gray slight brighter than the dark and this I classify as barely seable , I cant read the number but I can write after I open also the other eye and the 60 become a 47 ...
so does my tv has a problem?
The weird thing is that after all this fixing when I started watching ocean wonderland 3d the image was awfull and I jus thad to switch to normal and scrap all the fixing I did .... anyway ghosting was present often ....
Ok I bought a new blu ray of oceans , called oceanworld and it is the same problems a lot of image duplicated and headache ... so I called the technician and I hope he can do something when he will arrive , I really love this tv but I also wanted a good 3d to enjoy and I don't want to change it for another brand if possible....
I have watched a same movie on Samsung and it had very light ghosting , not even noticeable actually ...
So since the Samsung I watched was the latest version of 55" , and was perfect 3d to watch with the same movie , also has a calibration system to fix the ghosting if not wrong , ok I coul dstill see some ghosting but this is so minimal and so light that you don't really notice unless you go look for it and I didn't had any headache feeling , with the philips instead I saw fishes doubled and not on the boundary , I mean really 2 fishes instead of one as should be , so the ghosting is really severe, I called a technician now and I hope it can be fixed at least to a samsung level ghosting , because right now it's totally unuseable ...
I hope that is a problem just with my tv and that can be fixed somehow , to a Samsung like level , that even if is not ghost free like a plasma its very much better and actually enjoyable , as is now on philips I just get a heavy headache ...
