Hey guys, I have this TV (Sharp lc42sb45u) and am I having some issues with it. I'm not super familiar with LCD TV terminology, so I may not be describing the problem properly.
I am getting a very poor image quality when watching movies. The quality is particularly poor on large areas of a solid color, such as shirts or skin.
For example, if an actor is wearing a solid red t-shirt, then the shirt would look terrible but a car moving by in the background will look fine.
Complicated objects with multiple colors look very good, which is what is confusing me. I have confirmed that it is not the source video or the player because it happens with pretty much any HD content. I have tried blu ray discs on my ps3, downloaded HD movies on my PS3 and Xbox360, netflix streamed videos, etc. They all have the poor quality in areas of solid colors. Even video games have some minor quality issues (although less because video games have fewer of the large solid colors like movies).
I have tried altering the settings to no avail (i.e. trying different view modes, filters, etc). Is there anything I can do on my end to fix this or is the TV junk?
I managed to take a few photos of the issue (apologies for quality, the only digital camera I have is my phone):
These were taken during the playback of a 720p source. I viewed the source on my computer and it was crystal clear there.
