Samsung UN46ES7100F Videos Move Strangely

by beefchimi / December 3, 2012 11:22 AM PST

This might sound weird but I just bought a brand new Samsung 3d Smart TV ( and I have been watching a few video files from a USB stick. I have watched these same video files on my PC and they are fine. On the Samsung... they seem to move in a strange way. Its almost as if the refresh rate is too high. The videos look kind of cheesy, if that makes any sense. Its like everything is moving too fast. Video and audio sync up perfectly, and its most noticable when actors are moving around or there is camera movement.

I have tried a ton of different videos / file formats and they all do the same thing. Is there anything I can do to correct this? I just want to watch videos normally.

Try encoding them in something noted in the product manual. There's no PC in the TV so we can't use the fact it works on a PC for this discussion.

I figured it out. Turns out, there is this thing known as the "Soap Opera Effect". This is exactly what my problem was. I guess a lot of these new HDTVs have a motion enhancement feature, which in most cases is overkill. I found the option on my TV to disable the Auto Motion and now everything is good!

Light bulbs you shouldn't buy

There are plenty of dimmable LED light bulbs, but make sure you don't buy the ones that flicker when you dial them down.
