Settings needed: Sharp AQUOS LC52LE700UN

by badkoz / September 8, 2009 5:50 AM PDT

Fairly new LED TV, no professional reviews out or anything, but I saw it at Fry's, it looked awesome, and I loved the price, so I bought it. I will do my best to tune it myself, but if anybody can help, I will appreciate!

Found these settings from an AVSForum member who did a calibration...

Drawback is you cannot get 1080p from your tv in this mode.
So anyone calibrating there TV it must be done in dot-dot mode.
I dont know if my settings will help,but here they are.
backlight standard.
contrast +25.
sharpness 0.
cms hue. cms saturation
r-8 r-13
y+9 y 0
g 0 g 0
c+5 c 0
b-20 b-12
m+8 m-15.
cms value.
r -1
c 0
color temp -low.
r 0
g 0
g gain+30
fine motion on.
active contrast off.
gama -2.
film mode off.
He calibrates throughout North America.
HE is at all the ceshows througout the states,so might be worth getting a calibration if hes in your area.
The picture on my tv is much more life like now.
I am very happy with the results.

I like Them too.

by RyanRoberts_23 / October 1, 2009 6:35 PM PDT

so are you saying that this tv won't do 1080p after you make these settings?

He was saying you can't get 1080p in stretch mode, you have to be in dot by dot mode for 1080p. These settings are for color and will apply to any mode.

Another member shared his settings with me which I think look awesome on my TV...

OPC - Off
Backlight +10
Contrast (White Level) +25
Brightness (Black Level) -3
Color 0
Tint +2
Sharpness +2

C.M.S. Hue 0
C.M.S. Saturation 0
C.M.S. Value 0

Color Temperature (Set the Low preset to the following numbers for 6500K)
Red Gain (Lo) -16
Green Gain (Lo) +3
Blue Gain (Lo) -20
Red Gain (Hi) -15
Green Gain (Hi) +6
Blue Gain (Hi) -21

Fine Motion - On
Gamma +2
Film Mode - Advanced High
Digital Noise Reduction - Auto

These are the settings I'm using now.

Badkoz, are your recommended settings best for normal tv viewing, or for dvds/movies?

I use the same settings for both
by badkoz / October 27, 2009 2:23 AM PDT
In reply to: settings

I like these settings for both, I really like it when the picture looks "too good". This would not be the standard calibration, but I think it looks awesome. It's pretty easy to change and change back, and let's face it, when you have a new TV it's just fun to play with. Try them out and let me know what you think.
