Blurry/juttery ticker on Samsung

by prking21 / December 3, 2013 7:56 AM PST

I have just bought a Samsung UN60F7100AF and noticed that when I watch channels that have a ticker at the bottom of the screen like ESPN or Bloomberg the ticker will often be very blurry or jutters back and forth. I have also noticed that when watching fast moving programs like sports there is times when the picture is not as clear, like it needs time to adjust. The TV is less than a week old at this time. Is there an issue with my TV or do I need adjust my settings?

That answers one of the questions but is there anything to do regarding the the jittery sports/stock ticker that runs along the bottom of the screen/? It is not constant and is on various channels. My auto motion plus is set to off. I am using the same HD cable box that I did on my prior TV and never saw this problem before.

Watched news channel aljazera yesterday for a few hours on hd channel and sd channel free to air no juddering or blurring on the news ticker bar scrolling at the bottom. so i must assume when i saw it before it was a broadcasting issue.

By ticker i assume you mean when theres information scrolling along the bottom of the screen.if so i notice the same thing on mine the words are nice and clear then suddenly they will blur and start juddering then go clear again for a while then back to judder rinse and repeat. Can't say i've noticed anything while watching sport. I'm in the uk model No ue55f6400 2013 model. Don't know what causes it i just put up with it. Maybe some one might be able to shed some light on the matter.
