Unfortunately, no. Been pretty busy, but I did try hooking up an IR LED to a spare Raspberry Pi and that turned out way more complicated than just driving an ordinary LED. And I'm no programmer, so I'm giving that up. When I get free time in the next week or two, I'll write to Samsung or ring them up and see if I can put some pressure on them. Not expecting much from that, though.So, any luck, Alek?
Holy! Great news, thank you for reporting this! So, no global dimming on your TV now? I saw your posts on samsung community forums the other day, figured we are in for a long wait, so happy that now there is a way to sort this out. Gonna try this tomorrow, will report! Thank you again.
My settings (Q60T 43" I use it for tv series and sports):What’s everyone setting there pwm at?
Hi just wondering if the access to the service menu’s only work on pre 2020 models? I have an Q85 2020 & get as far as the advanced 0000 stage I just can’t get any further.You posted your settings in the other thread, not this one.
Step by step guide below:
Make sure you do only those things in order to not screw up the TV.
- With TV powered off to standby
- Press info, settings, mute and then power.
- The TV should power on and then be in the service menu.
- Select SVC
- Select Other Setting
- Select Cal Data Restore, a USB error will appear
- Select OK
- Press return until your are back at main service menu
- Highlight advanced and press 0000; which will reveal extra options.
- Select Picture_2D
- Select SubSetting
- Change PWM_INI_2D from 15 to 100
- Change PWM_MOVIE_INI from 30 to 100
- Press Standby
The PWM_Min setting does cap out at 100 though, you can't go above that, I've just tried. So when the screen goes fully black, the backlight will max on the black screen then go darker again when an image is displayed. But by the 5x rule I think the backlight will only be 'maxing' to 20.
No, IPS is not an LG only tech. It is just a different panel type. It produces better colours off axis but doesn't produce as good black levels. Samsung uses VA panels because they are better for blacks and therefore make better TVs for watching movies, etc.
As @shoestring25 has said, the code/input on the new TVs will have been changed from 0000. Might be worth asking in the dedicated Q85 owners thread, someone in there might know the new input sequence.Hi just wondering if the access to the service menu’s only work on pre 2020 models?
