If you get the $50 shipping offer take it
Here's what I think is the best outcome:
1) Don't forget the free Family 6-pack of glasses (4 come with the TV, so you'll have a total of 10) Use this link .
2) Being an Amazon Prime member seems to be the recipe for Free Shipping.
3) Call the large item phone number (Thank, The.Walrus). See below.
4) Enjoy your new TV... I bought the same a month ago and am completely pleased... Picked up locally, so I paid tax. This is a great deal.
LG Service Mode Instructions (for those who want to unlock hidden THX Settings on this TV)
Alright so you guys can try to Google "LG Service Menu" for more info, but I wasn't able to find that much. I referred to these threads for help:
So pretty much what we're trying to do is access the LG Service menu. In order to you that you must have the "In-Step" button programmed to your remote. I'm going to refer to this as the "magic button" instead. In order to achieve that you can:
a) Obtain an official LG Service Remote like the one mentioned here: http://www.electronica-pt.com/ser...LW5600.pd
b) Program that button into your Logitech Harmony http://openlgtv.org.ru/wiki/index...us_/_modes
c) Buy a cheap RCA universal remote. Specifically one that can be programmed with a 5-digit code (some are 4-digit only). The code you will need to program is 11265. Check this site to find out which remotes are compatible: http://rcaaudiovideo.c
From my own experience I was unable to program my Logitech 650 using the Wiki tutorial. I ended up going to Wal Mart and found a RCA RCR312WR. I'll have to double check that product number when I get home but I'm pretty positive it's right. Anyway it was like $8. When I got home Iprogrammed the remote using code 11265. After that I pressed the "Guide" button (this is the Magic Button that we all need) and a pop-up appears asking for a 4-digit passcode. That passcode is 0413. Voila, you now have access to LG's Service Menu. A new pop-up screen should have appeared with a bunch of numbers and options. I believe option #3 and option #6 is all you need to access the THX. In option #3 you need to replace the 0 with a 1 next to THX. In option #6 you need to replace the 0 with a 1 next to THX 3D. I've read that there's also a DVR function somewhere that you can activate too, but I haven't done that. Other than options I wouldn't mess around unless you want to screw up your settings and brick your TV. It's a pretty simple process. Hardest part for me was getting access to the "magic button."
So that unlocked 3 modes: THX Cinema, THX Bright Room, and THX 3D. I can definitely tell that the colors are beyond better than any CNET or online calibration settings I've tried. I've only viewed the THX 3D a few times since then also, but it appears to have improved overall, not just in color but also in 3D effect and motion.
Feel free to put this in the Wiki if you feel that it's helpful.
Good luck everybody!
