Default Soap Opera Effect

I just recently bought a Sharp LC-47SB57UT 47" LCD tv. I have noticed that some movies and shows I have previously watched look like a soap opera in film appearance. I have done some reading and have found that some TVs have a 60 hertz option to stop this effect from happening.

Does anyone know if this TV has a 60 hertz option??? Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

What really is the cause is all of the enhancement features. Try turning them off and if an option, turn off 24p as well.


Let us know your results.

What enhancement features?? I don't think I have changed any settings after plugging it in, but I can check.

It is not a 60Hz option since no TV so far has changed the Hz like that on LCDs. What it is doing it interpolating (guessing) the changed being made between each frame being displayed and displaying that. Look for a "smoothing" option and turn that off.

These settings are usually turned on at the factory. Look through your settings, set the TV for cinema or movie, set the sharpness to 0 and turn any other features off (edge enhancement, smoothing, noise filters, etc.). See if that doesn't help...

Mine does it also but I assumed it was supposed to based on the 120hz. Do the other sets look like that also?

Smile Soap opera effect

Unfortunately this is a problem with LCDs trying to match the superior picture that plasmas offer. By trying to reduce the motion blur and lag time associated with LCDs, the picture looks like a " soap opera " instead of the natural look of the film. And even with these " picture enhancing " effects, you still get some motion blur and lag time. IMHO, the only way around it is to buy a plasma.
