I have recently bought an 42lg6000 lcd tv and i have noticed that on fast moving images (football, or even just a person turning around) there is a blur around the image, sometimes it looks like heat waves coming from the image. this happens on hd programs and blu ray movies but also on regular films. do you know what causes this. and what would be the best tv settings be to resolve this. Thank you for your help.

To freeze motion, you need either a fast shutter speed, or a fast flash in a dark environment. In less than bright light you may not be able to get a fast enough shutter speed to stop the action. Increasing the camera's sensitivity to light by increasing the ISO will help some.
You can blur the motion by using a slower shutter speed and a stable camera. Set a slow shutter speed and put the camera on a tripod or other stable surface, and you can get things like streaking car taillights and star trails. How slow a shutter speed depends on the speed of the subject.
You can pan with the subject. Move the camera with the subject, and keep it moving even while the display blanks out while taking the picture. This will keep the subject sharper while blurring the background to lend a sense of motion to the picture.
It's either to freeze motion if the subject is moving straight toward or away from you than if it's moving across your field of vision.
This is a problem that will pretty much just be there on this TV. I know it has an awesome picture...as long as nothing moves. You can try putting it in "Game Mode" in the user menu and that usually takes care of it but you didn't buy the 120/240 Hz tv to watch it in 60Hz. I would say exchange it, and in my opinion buy a good plasma :)
This is probably a combination of 2 things. In both causes 1 and 2 below, I would suggest checking the TV with a BluRay Player with BluRay disc connected using an HDMI Cable. If you complain about this, then the TV is probably not that great. Expect a $200 jump to a better model at the least (but this depends on what you have now). Honestly, this is fairly normal and wont change much with the next TV.
CAUSE 1: Motion BLUR
Motion blur occurs when fast moving objects are displayed on LCD TVs. Basically, it takes time for the LED lights that make up the picture to turn ON and OFF, when and object shown on the TV is moving faster than the LCD TV can turn these lights ON and OFF, you see the trail left behind as the lights dim to OFF. This look like blur because you see the current image and the trail of the old images. 120HZ and 240HZ LCD TV are supposed to improve this but honestly, they are at times 300+ dollars more and not really worth it. Very little difference except in some few cases.
CAUSE 2: Digital TV
Digital signals are hit or miss. Good or BAD. If you are watching Cable, Satelite or Antenna; it is likely you are seeing some BLOCK NOISE. This block noise is caused by missing information or Noise in the video signal. This will cause the picture to Pixilate (you see blocks and things start looking blurry too). This happens with poor signals. This also happens with the HD channels when they have more information than bandwidth (more data than that have space to send it...image shoving an elephant into a VolksWagon Beetle)
TV is a setting that controls the time. 1/4000 is a very high speed and the image will be dark. You could use 1/500 or 1/1000 as your speed. the slower speed gives more light for the exposure. When you go slower you may get some blur. Also make sure you do not shake the camera. A small shake is amplified with a zoom lens.
Keep in contact with Samsung or the repair depot, as they may hook you along till the warranty is up and then want to charge you big bucks. Ok if your not happy with this set, go back to the store where you bought it, and compair it with one they have on the floor. If there are not any, tell them your not happy with the set and see what they will do about it. If you get no where with them, contact Samsung directly and they are easaly found online. If you need a URL I will be more then happy to supply it. Good Luck
