Question

How do you picture calibrate Sharp Aquos LC-60LE630U?

by KingPin_01 / December 18, 2011 12:10 AM PST

I dont like the factory settings so ive tried calibrating it myself but not nearly satisfied. I still see some fuzziness on the screen. I used to have a Philips 47inch 120 hz HDTV in my living and that was an ease set up and it was crystal clear especially on blu ray. Yesterday I purchased a 60 inch Sharp LED HDTV 120 hz. and i've tried my best to calibrate it but it didnt get as close as my 47 inch Philips in my bedroom now. I thought maybe its because of the larger screen but I went to FRYs Electronics yesterday for some x-mas shopping and I saw an 80 inch Sharp Aquos 120 hz HDTV on main display and it was crystal clear! So now I know its not the screen size thats making me unsatisfied, Maybe I am just not calibrating it right? Please help?? Thanks a bunch!

I'd thought I'd play around with the settings and try to get this calibrated as good as I could via the very limited user menu system on the LC-60LE63OU as I saw very little in way of both information and settings on the net with this particular model of television.

I had to use different settings for standard definition and high definition. So here we go:

Standard Definition Settings

AV Mode: Standard
OPC Off
Backlight +7
Contract +30
Brightness +7
Color 0
Tint 0
Sharpness +2

Advanced Settings

Color Temp Low
Motion Enhancement On(Low)
Film Mode Advanced(Low)
Active Contrast On
Digital Noise Reduction Off
Range of OPC N/A (it is turned off so this doesn't matter

HD Settings:

AV Mode Movie
OPC Off
Backlight +10
Contrast +30
Brightness 0
Color -7
Tint -5
Sharpness 0

Advanced Settings

Color Temp Low
Motion Enhancement On(Low)
Film Mode Off
Active Contrast Off
Digital Noise Reduction Off
Range of OPC n/a (again turned off so this does not matter)

I also have Game Mode settings for my xbox but I haven't really played around too much with this. Here they are regardless:

OPC Off
Backlight +7
Contrast +27
Brightness 1
Color 0
Tint 0
Sharpness +1

Advanced Settings:

Color Temp Mid-High
Motion Enhancement and Film Mode are not an option in Game Mode
Active Contrast On
Digital Noise Reduction Off
Range of OPC n/a (OPC is turned off so this is not a factor)

I'm not a professional calibrator by any means and all of these settings are done strictly by eye. You will notice that the green and red really pop for the Standard settings and are even a little over-powering but with no options to adjust colors, this was the best I could do. I suppose I could have tweaked it a little more to make it look like any other TV but one of the beautiful things about this set is the brightness and vivid colors and I really wanted to showcase those features. Also when I got it to the point where the red and green were toned down, everything had kind of a bluish hue, and the color seemed kind of faded and blah. Hopefully this gives some a good base to go one if they have this set.

After playing around some more, a tip to those using an HTPC connected to this TV--use game mode and vlc player. The absolute best picture I have ever seen on either standard def programming or high def, but 1080p rips really shine in this mode!!!

In fact, I'm even using game mode now for standard def cable, which is great for sports, but still needs a little more tweaking to get it just right!!
