Default I am returning my Passive LG

It has a huge flashlighting problem. I might get a refund and get an active. I want an active TV that has 4 pairs of active glasses. If there is such an active 3DTV that has 4 pairs included, im in. Is active better than passive, or should i get a replacement for the passive. I am also very pleased with the 3D, and I don't notice the 3D resolution difference. I just want some other peoples opinions.

If you are happy with your tv besides the flash lighting, I would just exchange it. That's one of LED tv's problem its either a flash lighting problem or clouding problem. So if you go active you could run in to the same problem.

I am with emac213 on this one. If your tv has only the flashlighting problem then just exchange it for another one. As for what is better Active vs Passive? They are both good at what they do which is 3D.

Forgive my ignorance but what does flashlighting mean? Does it flicker? Is it a dynamic backlight option that can't be disengaged?

flashlighting is MOST prevalent in Edge lit LED's. since the LED"s are are on the outside facing in wards you see the light bleed like a "flashlight" beam around the edges.

On my Sony Active TV there was a minor bit of flashlighting when I first got it, but after it was on for a few days it actually went away 90%. It's a problem you will find on several LED models, irregardless of the 3D type.

My first LM7600 was pathetically bad and exchanged it for a HX850 which had it but to an acceptable level. However, I was underwhelmed by the HX850 and really want passive 3D so returned it and back to trying the LM7600 which is still in the box waiting to be tested. One of those things that is a total luck of the draw thing. You will get some where you don't notice it, some where it will be tolerable and others that will be a complete mess. The 3D type and TV don't matter at all. Even if you go plasma instead you can run into line bleed and other problems. Just keep exchanging it until you get lucky if you have the patience.

Wouldn't be shocked if the constant OLED delays are because they are failing at fixing the blotch issue which would make them totally worthless in a dark room.

chickachicka54 i had the same flashlight problem that you had with my 60" Sharp LED piece of crap.... That photo you took is what my set looked like when the screen was black.... I thought it would go away but after 3 days it was even worse... I returned the Sharp piece of junk set and got 60" Panasonic Active 3D set and i love it Here is a link to the set.. I will never buy an LED set again.... Why spend your hard earned cash on set that looks like there are flashlights shinning through ? Take it back and do not settle for that crap product.

I have love my LG Passive 3D. Superior 3D with no problems.

Only active i will ever own again is the 24" Sony Gaming monitor in my bedroom. I've been very underwhelmed with any actve 3D viewing but to each his own I guess.

Celebrated too soon when I set up the second LM7600. Did the bleed test with the settings I would use and it eliminated the bleed that was evident with the default settings which wasn't too bad even then and the default was with the backlight on max.



Yes the TV is on with a black image in a dark room and you can't even see it so obviously bleed is not an issue with this set. Had I taken this picture with the first set it would have been even worse than the picture Worm posted. Also did better than the HX850 I was underwhelmed by. So I proceeded to dance around in joy only to later notice terrible banding instead which I didn't take a picture of and didn't even bother testing for because it isn't something I have ever ran into a problem with. So my joy was erased since banding seems to annoy me even more than bleeding. So close

But at least this proves that you can win the bleeding war. You just lose the banding war instead until you get really lucky and don't lose either war

I returned mine for the same reason. I thought I'd have a hard time returning it but it seemed the guys who picked up my Sammy have heard it all before.

I really like the thinness of LED technology and in future, when they work out the kinks, I'd buy. For now, very satisfied with my replacement plasma 3D.

I'm sitting in front of a 55" LG passive 3D set that I will be retuning soon for flashlighting issues. Any dark scene that I watch at night looks like a dream sequence, even after messing with the settings. The only way to fix it is to ruin the rest of the image by completly washing it out. Also, the passive 3D looks no where near as good as my DLPs 3D. The hit the resolution takes is very real and makes the movie look like a poorly compressed downloaded version. Other than those 2 things, the brightness is nice and so is the image when it's not effected by the flashlighting issue.

So flashlighting is an led issue, is image burn a plasma only issue then? I'll take a little flashlighting but I can't stand any image burn as I had with my previous plasma.

nope, IR can be had on a LCD/LED too, just takes more work to get it that way.

I am a few months into my first plasma and I havent had any issues
with IR (yet). TV is on a good amount of hours each day, I did change the settings in my cable box to stretch the non-hd channels because my wife somehow always ends up on those channels and I was concerned about the 4:3 (not sure if I should be or not). Even though I hated spending $50 for each pair of 3d glasses.. I am more then happy with the 3d on my active panasonic
