I hope it's not dead. There are a few films I couldn't bear not watching in 3D! I hear when 8K becomes a thing, Ulta-D is working on glasses free tvs! I think that would bring 3D back into the home, if the 3D is good!

Trouble is, on even the best glasses free 3d tv, there will always be zero popout, so no point really, your have depth thou, but alot of people like popout, you have to have lens at your eye to see popout, impossible any other way, as the trick is done at eye level for popout.

Ah, didn't know that, but it makes sense. Guess I'll have to make my current tv last forever as things are currently. Only 4 years in and it already sucks. lol

I might add thou, that is my personal thoughts on it, you might get a few inches pop out, but i cant see it poping out like 6 or 8 feet right in from of your eyes like sammys tale does with glasses on.

I’ve seen slot machines with glasses-free 3D and they CAN do good popout effects. They are not yet perfect though- from some angles you see a double image or just 2D.

Default The 3D Prayer

As I lay me down to sleep

I pray the Lord my LGs for me to keep

And if one dies before I wake

I still have more for 3D to make

And to all those who say 3D is dead

I will be sleeping soundly in my bed

because no one can take from me my 3D

except the Good Lord who gave it to me

And so with one final prayer I say to Thee

will you one day give to so many who cannot see

the blessing that you have given us few

and allow them to see 3D and know the truth?

And please watch over Bob, Mr. 13(The 13th Man), Joe, Paul H, JtChance, Presidentevil, DarrinG, dhvsfan, revgen…..

The reason glasses free sets don't have 'pop out' is because they compromise by wanting to have both glasses free AND multiple viewing angles at the same time. It takes both left/right video streams and generates a depth map on the fly, making conversions for each view point. So you're not seeing the original 3D content, but a degraded version with shallower depth. For the foreseeable future passive glasses on an Ultra-HD screen is still the best way to go.

Perhaps some people just need prescription 3D glasses.

True but for the foreseeable future it's active glasses that are the way to go simply because it's the only option going forward.

By the way, if your passive panel konks out, DON'T get rid of the set. Happened to me. Dead for a month and the repair guy said it couldn't be fixed/replaced. Was gonna junk it
and started to look at PJs. But a month later, it miraculously came back on and is working fine! Not sure why (divine intervention?) but i'm not complaining and happy I held on to it.

Hi film,

Glad the set came back to life. Power source perhaps?

I also have an active set but curious about that being the only option going forward.

He is probably referring to the fact that the only way to purchase new 3D viewing equipment is to buy a projector, and those all use active tech. No flat panel TVs are currently being made with 3D features, and that's what it took to make passive work.

Not a power source issue. Panel was filled with multi-colored lines. Not a connection problem either. Completely unexplainable but maybe the Universe likes 3D.

I fix electronics including monitors and there are a number of things that can cause this. Statistically speaking, it is likely connection-related or power-related as I have seen this happen before.

I originally thought the same. I even got a new HDMI to try as well. Neither I nor the authorized service tech could find any such issues. But I'm not looking this gift horse in the mouth.

My passive LG OLED formed a vertical white line a few weeks ago. LG won't fix it. The set was only 1.5 years old and not completely paid off. Now I'm not sure what I'm going to do with my existing collection, but I'm not going to buy new discs anymore. I'd fall back to my passive Sony, but it decoded the images wrong and was a bit annoying to watch.

Well, after a couple weeks, mine went back to multi-colored horizontal flickering lines. Hopefully it fixes itself again.

Hi 4reel,

Sorry to learn. It's the nightmare of all of ours. There are older 3D sets brand new still available but that might mean a four year shelf life.

Hope this all straightens out.

I'm curious: LG is one year warranty, yes? How big?

It's starting Joe. I don't know if I can take this death by attrition. I feel like Julius Caesar is at the walls and slowly starving us of our 3D. Thank goodness for projectors! Lord, please don't let them go away.

Hi wild,

I was already surfing the web to see what's still available, that's how worried I am too. But things always have a way of working out.

You feel like Julius Caesar against the walls being hacked to death? E tu Cameron?
