David, I can't help thinking the [movie] setting, after adjustment, seems too dim, above all when sunlight images are present. :-[
In comparison, the [user] or [standar] configurations, appears more illuminated, although have quite unreal colors :D
The dilemma is: natural colors but dim light (IMO) vs. altered colors with vivid images...

The movie setting can come as quite a shock if you are used to a very bright image. Is the room you are viewing in particularly bright?
Very bright at noon but not so bright lamp light in the evening.  :-[

Maybe you could try User or Normal for none crucial daytime viewing and Movie for evening HD viewing. :)

I think it's a good idea. Yesterday I was changing the adjustment to the User mode in order to get a more "natural" image. I don't know if I was doing right, but it seems someway smoother and near to the Movie mode. Although I couldn't do nothing to put an end to the "radioactive greens"  :D

Hi everybody:

A lot of time out of this forum, but there is a reason for it: I am very disappointed with my Sharp, mates  :'(

I had a serious problem with an increasingly noticeable clouding, so I contacted with Sharp Spain. After a month of struggle, they accepted to change my set for a new one... that posseses even more clouding, three dead pixels and an inopperative DLNA/Wifi... >:(

I'm reading differents opinions from my country and even the USA (AVSforum) and I got the conclusion that Sharp has eliminate good quality controls of his priorities in making this TV panels. Some people started to think there is a wheel of clouding affected panels that the company receives and gives them to another client, so the chances of get a 'perfect' panel are very low now. The guy in the repairing service I contacted for my problem, told to me he had received two more panels with clouding this week and he is waiting instructions from Sharp Spain.

I am waiting for a answer too, but at this point I have the sad feeling that I threw 1k euros to the W.C.  :(

Sharp Spain has changed my TV for a third set... but it also shows a lot of annoying clouding...  :'(

Sorry to hear about all your troubles Seibei. Any chance of getting a full refund? Or cutting your losses and selling it on eBay?

Hi, David:

I,ve just wrote a new e-mail to the person in Sharp assigned to my case, demanding a full refund of my money or, on the other hand, a new unit tested ok by Sharp Spain previous to deliver it to me. But I don't know if they will accept.

I've read that Sony in Japan broke its commercial agreements with Sharp because this company had supplied a great amount of TV panels with clouding issues. It seems that Japanese companies are having serious troubles since 2011 earthquake and nuclear meltdown.

Thank you for worrying about my case  ;)

Is it true that they broke agreements with Sharp specifically over the quality of the panels? Where did you read that? That's very interesting.

Hello Everybody:)
My name is Adam and it's my 1st post here  ;D
I'm looking for solution for a green/yellow colors in specific situations described (HD part in article http://www.hdtvtest.co.uk/news/sharp-lc40le831e-lc40le831-201111101501.htm?page=Performance).
This kind of anomaly ruins my picture badly, just imagine a human face with green tint :(. All settings which i have found are set to FILM/MOVIE mode and LOW color temp.
Guys, have you got any settings for LOW-MID temp (it helps a little with unnatural yellow/green) or maybe STANDARD/USER mode ?.

Thank you kindly for any help.
AdamM (46LE830E Owner)[PL].
