Has anyone purchased a new samsung 4 series lcd tv?
Have seen many new deals out on the market and want to know what they are like before buying! Had my eye on the LE32A436T1D model
Thanks for the info Rottie! Sounds very tempting, im strongly considering to buy this set.May I ask what panel you got? (I.e AUO, CMO, S-PVA etc)
Hi there,Yep im going to take this TV back for a refund. Im sure with the right tweaks both the PS3 and PC pictures can look stunning even without game mode and movie plus, but the freeview screen tearing is just way to annoying, it seems to be doing it every few seconds on some channels, even when theres not much movement. I feel ive been cheated. This TV is below the standard of the R87 to which this TV is supposedly replacing. This is just a cheap bottom of the range LCD which will be on sale for way under £400 in a couple of months. Im so disappointed.
I'm not sure which panel I've got, to be honest Is there an easy way to find out? I don't want to go into the service menu, if I can help it, as Samsung UK have said this will invalidate the warranty unless they tell me to do so and log it at their end.
Yup, all you have to is to read the sticker at the back of the TV, next to your model number there should be a letter written. Its likely to be something like a C, P (S), A or similar. You might also have a small sticker on the left rear side of the TV, look in the last line it should have something written under 'Version' such as 'CMO4'. Hope this helps!
Sorry to hear you're having problems with your new set.
The tearing you describe sounds like it could be down to the signal strength that the set is receiving. Have you tried checking your signal strength? (Menu key on remote > Digital menu > Setup > System > Signal Information)
Also, have you tried doing another full DTV channel search?
Cheers for that rottie!
I'll probably place an order today, the price has been jacked up to just over £415 but I think for the spec given its worth it.
Cheers Rottie, i re-installed DTV and the tearing issues have gone away checked the signal strength and its saying 42% which is quite low considering its hooked up to a decent digital TV aerial on the roof, probably down to the resistance in the long cable. Getting used to the PC picture now, obviously it's not going to be as sharp as my old 19inch dell ultrasharp. I thought this LCD was missing game mode and movie plus, but that is not the case, there's a button on the control which is entertainment mode which you can select three modes 1. sports 2. Cinema 3.game. I think im starting to like this TV now. I'll have a proper play tonight and test out some blu-rays , ps3 games...etc. Just hope the perfect A457 picture settings are submitted soon.
