color temp: greyed out and the ten point settings
by epach2012 / June 26, 2013 7:23 PM PDT

Ok, I have this same model and when I turned the 10 point settings on it automatically greyed out the color temp. But the problem comes when I turn my 10 point setting on, it only gives me the Position setting which I set to +1:0,0,0. Am I doing something wrong? My color temp does not have a greyed out setting so I figured you meant it automatically greyed it out when you turn the 10 point setting on. The model number is a Sharp LC-60le650u. Thanks for any help to this question.

Yes, when you turn on "10 Point Setting", "Color Temp." becomes unavailable (greyed out). Then you must enter each set of values for each position (1 to 10). That easy!

Hope it's helpful.

10 point scale not there
by seanckri1 / July 6, 2013 8:53 AM PDT
In reply to: Ok

I agree with Epach there are not 10 options even when 10 point scale is on. Just Position, R gain, G gain, and B gain are options. Any help would be great. Thanks for all you work

What did you do to get the 10 settings
by markchristoffel / July 28, 2013 12:12 AM PDT
In reply to: i just figured it out

I still can only get the Position, R gain, G gain and B gain options. Can you let me know how you got the correct setting?

by ctracy33 / August 19, 2013 9:57 AM PDT

When you open the ten point scale, "Position" has the choice of 1-10. These are the 10 settings you adjust. For example, go into "Position" and select "1", then go down and enter "0" in R gain, "0" in G gain, and "0" in B gain. Then go up to Position again and select 2 and keep going until you have added all 10 values. I did it this morning and it worked fine.
Hope that helps.

I would like to know the best picture settings for the LC-70LE650U. Is it the same as the 60 inches or the settings are differents for the 70 inches ?

I found 3 sites, but with very different settings, which one is good ?

I await your response as soon as possible.

I've used lcdtvbuyingguide settings before and have been very happy.

Both that and CNET settings use the advanced settings so I'd think they may be the better option rather than TweakTV which also provides no details on who did the calibration or using what equipment.

Interested both CNET and lcdtvbuyingguide calibration folks are ISF certified yet the settings are so different.

I guess try them all and see which you like best. lcdtvbuyingguide seem the most detailed.

Sharp LC60LE650U Picture Settings
by mikekovach64 / October 12, 2013 3:04 AM PDT

Ok, I tried both lcdbuyingguide and CNET's settings. CNET is closer to TweakTV and quite frankly appears better to my eyes than the lcdbuyingguide settings. Plus, the lcdbuyingguide settings gave a setting on one item that isn't even possible, which makes me a bit suspect on all of them.

I also ran my spydercolor 4 HD TV against it and he settings were closer to CNET and TweakTV as well although that in no way compares to the expensive equipment used in these reviews.

I ran the spydercolor after using the lcdbuyingguide to start. I'm going to try it again after using these CNET settings as a base and see how they differ.

Sharp LC60LE650U Settings

Ok, after using these as a base, my spydercolor came up with almost identical settings, none being more than 1 off what's noted here.

software update
by gartlb / November 30, 2013 2:51 AM PST

I installed my wireless network and did the software update. Now all of the reccommended setting look bad. Skin tones look very pink.
Have you applied the latest software? If so what changes did you make.
If you havn't, what setting should I change to correct skin tone? Are any of the 10 point settings to blame?

Should PS3 be set to be limited of fill HDMI range?
by artalaxius / September 28, 2013 9:30 AM PDT

On my old Samsung, if I set HDMI black level to "low" , then unless I set the PS3 to "limited" blacks would be crushed. And if set to "normal" on the TV, then it needed a corresponding "full" setting on the PS3.

Now, I have a brand new Sharp LC60-LE650U (following your advice on CNET, loving the set so far). But no matter what calibration option I chose, "Black level" in advanced settings is always greyed out. So I don't have a clue if the default is low or normal or what, and thus also don't know what the correct setting should be. I'm otherwise following your calibration to the letter.

On a side note, I notice a slight bluish tint for whites. Is this normal for this set? And how much could the ideal settings you found for the specific set you calibrated upon from the ideal settings on another TV set of the very same model? Just curious.

Thanks for everything!

Dynamic setting?
by heilmanmatt / October 11, 2013 11:43 PM PDT

I really like what the dynamic setting has to offer in color and brightness, especially for sports, but I'm having some problems with some shadowing and backlighting issues (a bit of blurring in the background). I've tinkered and calibrated. Is there a way to get my dynamic setting to be a more well rounded setting for all viewing?

this worked for me.
by spidaman54 / February 3, 2014 8:40 AM PST
In reply to: Dynamic setting?

Almost returned the set after tweaking the picture settings. Could not get the picture to my liking 100%. I also am used to the dynamic setting being my preferred. Try and change the settings from home to store mode. This really improved the picture and is not as flat. Hope this helps.

Film Mode
by Del366 / November 28, 2013 3:45 PM PST

Hey Guys,

I used the settings above but in Film Mode, Standard is greyed out, the options are Off or Advanced. Also, if Film Mode is used, does that create the "Soap Opera Effect" or is that "Motion Enhancement"?

Thanks for your help.

How to get to 10-point settings
by SlyP1 / November 28, 2013 11:12 PM PST
In reply to: Film Mode

What you are setting is the 10 settings under the "position" setting. Click on "position", you will see a position selector and gain settings RG and B. Set them to the recommended settings go back to the top/position selector bump up to the no. 2 position and do the same for each position up to the tenth. Looks pretty good to me.

Solution to Film Mode problem
by RedVisor / December 6, 2013 6:54 AM PST

I figured it out. Set your input to TV (or any other mode that produces an interlaced source) and then select "Standard" as the film mode. Then, go back to your progressive input and you'll see that the Film Mode is still set to "Standard". This trick will allow you to view movies in pure 24 fps playback for all modes, not just the Game mode.

Solution to Film Mode problem

Thanks! I switched to cable TV signal (1080i) & Standard wasn't greyed out. Now its set when I watch blu-rays in Film mode. Thanks again for your help.

Dynamic Setting 70" Sharp
by yenaj1 / July 26, 2015 10:19 AM PDT

This is my first post so I'm posting under a Sharp 70" not the 60". I would prefer using the "Dynamic" setting because I watch a lot of sports. Could someone please suggest calibrations that would be good if I have the TV set at the Dynamic setting? Thank you.

Help with Sharp Aquos Display Calibration
by lmears07 / July 30, 2015 3:03 PM PDT

Hello All,

I have literally just un-boxed my new sharp 60" Aquos LC-60C6600C. I am desperately attempting to calibrate the display for optimum quality. (I'm a movie and game guy.)I've called Sharp customer service and they were useless. I have scoured the internet for posts and walk throughs. I have found nothing matching the model of my television. Please assist. I've been at it all day.
