Hello, I have just purchased an LG 32PG6000 and whenever I try adjusting the picture settings to my preferred taste, after 10 minutes or so the new settings revert back to default. I just can't seem to retain my new adjustments. Am I doing something wrong ?

I find the colour contrast is very dark could you send me ideal colour settings for perfect clarity thanks

Adjust the contrast to 55 to 70%; brightness to 45 to 55% and colour to your viewing taste. Now the brightness will be very low I thinks. Advance the brightness and contrast after setiing the colour to Zero. Adjust for a well defined B/W picture first. The advance the coulour. Take reference of the face colour of a news reader at studio. The picture will be perfect. OK.

I need the picture settings for a trutech tv. For example : number for contrast .

The picture setting for any TV depends upon the taste of the viewer. Contrast is the deepness of details in black and grey level. In most TVs a 55 to 75% of contrast will give a good picture. you have to adjust the brightness level also according to contrast. It is best ot turn out colour to 0% first. Adjust contrast and brightness to get a well detailed B/W picture first. The apply enough colour to that B/W picture according to your taste. Face colour of a newsreader at studio will be the best reference to intensity of colour.OK.

What is the proper calibration settings for a panasonic tc-p50s2n. I have used it for over a 100 hours

Do you have access to a test pattern or color bar ? .If you have a THX certified DVD ( some Walt Disney movies ) it will have calibration setup guide in the DVD menu.Or else you have to buy a calibration DVD if you are serious about your TV setup.
First you have to set the contrast and brightness using the Grey-scale pattern. Seven set of vertical bars slowly progressing from white to black. If set right you should be able to make out all the seven bars with out each merging ( or overlapping ) into the other. You will be able to see the line of demarcation between each vertical bars. Then set the color to taste.
If you do not want to purchase the above mentioned DVD disc a close setup figure for your Panasonic TV would be
Picture Mode = Standard ( Normal )
Picture ( Contrast ) ---- 50
Brightness ---------------- 50
Color ------------------------ 33
Sharpness ---------------- 50
Hue ------------------------- In the middle
This setting should give you a decent picture quality assuming your TV is new.

What are the best picture settings for this tv?

Go to its menu and surf through and come to the picutre adjustments. Normally the factory set will be 50% of all the settings. You have to set it individually according to your taste. Anyway I'll give you a settings which finds me the better

Color = According to your taste
Brightness == 35 to 40
Cotrast == 70% of the maximum.
Sharpness == 35
Tint = If you are reciveing NTSC system programme you have to adjust this. If so adjust this to get a good flesh tone, and refer it to a stationary picuture, like a news readers face and so on.
Blue back = keep it on. It is best.

LG 32'' LCD TV aspect ratio self switching

I have an LG LCD TV with the same problem.
The solution is to go to
And select HOME rather than STORE on initial setup.
Mine was set to store as it was a display model.
That means that whatever picture setting you make they will reset after 10 minutes.

Hi, I have just purchased the Samsung LE37A559 tv. I have been trying to get the best colour settings brightness colour contrast tint backlight etc. Is there a optimum setting for all of these ? I am...

The problem is that everyone has a different "taste" when it comes to these settings. I like to turn the color all the way down to start with. You should (if the set is factory adjusted correctly) have a black and white picture. If it's not B&W, then there's something inside the set that needs adjusted and you should get a service call. Then I adjust brightness and contrast to get the best B&W picture. Then I turn the color up until I'm happy with the color level, then I adust tint.

Hope that helps
