Re: Q90T Issues: Dimming, Chromatic Abberation, Game Mode

Tried another factory reset today. This time I switched over everything to a different hdmi port and left all settings at default while playing. Sadly Gamemode will still randomly dimmed the entire screen for a few minutes. I have tried everything I can think of to get around it. It's not the consoles, this doesn't happen when I hook them up to any other TV in the house except this one...the newest most expensive TV I bought specifically for gaming. This it seriously lame.

Yup, started happening to me again, too. So factory reset did not fix it. Same thing. After being in game mode for awhile, the screen will suddenly dim until I do something like switch Game Mode off and on or the Local Dimming settings.

 

Edit: Actually, before the factory reset I was getting this issue while watching Netflix on my Xbox, and playing Last of Us 2 on PS4. After the reset and firmware update I only had it happen while playing Last of Us 2 on PS4. Another person I know with the same TV has also only noticed it while playing Last of Us 2 on PS4. So I can't tell if the issue was fixed (only an issue with the game or PS4), or partially fixed.

Re: Q90T Issues: Dimming, Chromatic Abberation, Game Mode

I had an issue with turning game mode on and after I was done and turned it off anything I played (movie or game) that has HDR would get crazy dimm. Had to reset the tv and it was fine... But when tried again with game mode same thing happened. So another factory reset. I haven't touched game mode since just to avoid having to reset. I've saved for so long to get an awesome flagship tv so I'm a little disappointed. Samsung please keep updating and fix these issues.

An update, issue still persists.  I'm just replying so this thread stays at the top of the list till samsung decides to engage with us, or at least acknowledge the existence of the game mode problems.

With the new update 1301.5 I'm having a dimming issue when playing HDR movies with subtitles on , every time the subtitles come the entire screen gets dimmer and when the subtitles disappear it turns brighter again. If you have 4K  Netflix you can try this playing OMNISCIENT episode 1 at 27:20 minute is very noticeable there . Samsung has to resolve this they are taking to long. There have to be some government agency that protects consumers from problems like this

So I did some experimenting and found that I can duplicate what you are saying when I use the Netflix app on the tv. When I watch it on my Apple TV 4K it doesn't do that. It might be a problem with the app itself on the tv.

I have the Q90T but haven't played around with Game Mode yet since my TV is used mainly for streaming.

Once you turn Game Mode On, how quickly does the entire screen become dim? I'm assuming you guys are seeing it during gameplay with your game console?

It seems to happen anywhere from 5 minutes all the way to an hour or 2 before dimming so it's completely random at least for me, I know it's not the eco settings, I have them and all dynamic enhancement settings (shadows, contrast ect.) off. The actual stuff on screen will be well lit or brightly colored so it's not glitching out from a dark scene. Seems to be worse with my switch then my xbox. I was playing MODERN Warfare and it happened mid game, I could tell it happened but just barely (maybe dipping 1-5 notches) , but when playing Animal crossing it will severely dip in brightness (10-15 notches). They really need to fix this issue. Gaming features are a huge selling point for a lot of people. Gamemode performance for next gen was the ONLY reason I got this TV and it turns out to be annoying and flawed. Worst buyers remorse I've ever had.
