60 inch lcd tv 9 feet away eye strain.


Standard Member
Hello i have a Sharp LC-60E79U. And whenever i am watching tv i get the horrible eye strain. I have the settings set so its not bright at all since i thought that was the issue but its not still my eyes hurt after only a couple minutes of viewing..
The tv is about 9 and a half feet away. Since according to the world that's a good placement for 720p and 1080p content.

Is there something i can do to help with this issue.

I usually watch tv at night in the dark but even with the lights on my eyes still hurt.

Thank you.

I have film mode turned off and

Fine Motion Enhanced turned on

Have you tried biased lighting ? There's a thread in the Plasma section on creating an Ambilight effect on tvs. I use an Ideal Lume behind my tv myself ,which I quite like.
