by spaceace717 / January 6, 2013 10:06 AM PST

HI I just bought the same tv last week from Best Buy. When I got it home I was a little disappointed. After some tweaking here is what I came up with. And was rather happy with the outcome.

Picture Mode- Preference


Picture Settings

Contrast- 80
Backlight 60
Dynalight On
Brightness 55
Color 44
Tint 0
Sharpness 0


Advanced Picture Settings

Dynamic Contrast- Off
Static Gamma +3
Color Temp: Cool
Cinema Mode Video


Noise Reduction

DNR: OFF
MPEG Noise Reduction OFF


Theatre Settings

Picture Size: Native
Auto Aspect Ratio: off


Let me know how you like it.

Thanks. I tried the settings you sent and it was a little bit better. It just seems to be too bright and the faces are paler than I want.

Try these settings - calibrated with Avia

I'll borrow Dave's format for the settings. These seem to work well for me on the HDMI and Component inputs alike. I used the Avia Guide to Home Theatre DVD. Hope this works for you.

Picture Settings
Contrast 50
Backlight 50
Dynalight On
Brightness 55
Color 32
Tint +6
Sharpness 1

Advanced Picture Settings
Dynamic Contrast: Off
Static Gamma: +2
Color Temp: Medium
Cinema Mode: Film

Noise Reduction
DNR: OFF
MPEG Noise Reduction OFF

These are a lot better. I tweakd a couple of them just a little bit and are pretty satisfied now. Thanks.

Glad to help. I would think that the backlight and/or contrast could be turned down further but haven't had the time to try it yet.

Also, I have been going back and forth with the Dynamic Contrast and the Dynalight. Currently, I'm leaving the Dynamic Contrast on (better details in dark areas) and the Dynalight off (no difference noted other than the channel banner from my cable box doesn't get dimmer when switching channels with Dynalight off).
