Testimonial: "Nice try but this is not the answer. Just a mediocre answer. The LG's support website does not give specific numbers answers to actual Isf Expert (Bright/ Dark) room calibration settings answers."

    I came across a review & calibration steps at:
    http://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/lg/uh85...

    LG UH8500 LED TV Calibration Settings


    We used the following settings to calibrate the LG UH8500. If you intend to play video games on this TV, make sure to copy those settings under the 'Game' picture mode as well.
    Start by selecting 'Expert (Dark Room)' picture mode, which is the closest to the look we want to achieve with our calibration. We used a 'Backlight' value of 28 in our totally dark room, but you should select whatever value works best for your taste, and for the lightning conditions of your room.

    To remove any unwanted artifacts caused by over-sharpening, set 'H Sharpness' and 'V Sharpness' to 0.

    For most content, leave 'Color Gamut' set to 'Normal'. 'Wide' will over-saturate the colors, making video look wrong if the content isn't made to benefit from the feature. For cartoons, 'Wide' will usually look good.

    To activate chroma 4:4:4 for sharper text when using the TV as a PC monitor in 4k @ 60Hz, enable 'HDMI ULTRA Deep Color.'

    The following are the results of the white balance and colorspace calibration on our unit. They are provided for reference, and should not be copied as the calibration values vary per individual unit even for the same model and same size as the TV we reviewed due to manufacturing tolerances. If you want to try them you will need to enter all values shown, as all of them are active at the same time. If you end up with worse picture quality, simply reset them to the default values.



    UH8500 support HDR gaming mode and how do I get the best experience in HDR if it does?
    Yes the LG UH8500 had the HDR gaming mode added with firmware update 04.30.19. For the best experience set the TV to game mode for lowest input lag and set the picture settings to our recommended settings.

    Specific HDR settings please?
    Use the same settings for HDR, just with a backlight of 100. You can lower the backlight if that's too bright. Note that when the TV detects HDR content it changes to an HDR picture mode, so you will need to change the settings of that mode to our recommended settings.

Just bought the TV yesterday. In the bright room, with sun shinning, i can not see the picture. Is there a setting that needs to be switced?


You didn't mention the make or model of your TV but most of the latest do have an ECO setting or similar idea in the set up or picture menu, this means the screen will automatically adjust the picture brightness if the room starts to get too bright, as in the sun shining or if the room gets too dark. Take a look in your instruction book for this type of setting, remember not all models have this & yours may be one of them.

Contrast really dark but seems to improve after the tv has been on several hours


Hi:
You may have a problem with the inverters in the unit, they are responsible for lighting up the back panel. Check or have checked the power supply voltage to the inverters, should be around 18-24 volts DC. Also leaky capacitors on the power supply will cause this issue as well as leaky or puffy capacitors on the inverter.

There are as you know factory presets to choose from in the user menu.. Your eyes will tell you what you like. The only other way to get a killer picture is to have the TV Calibrated by a good ISF Calibrator.

Can u suggest me best colour settings for my samsung led


Picture default settings are provided by Samsung. If the colors are not correct you might have a bad Main bd. On the other hand if the picture is good and you want a much better picture then you might consider having a ISF Claibrator calibrate your TV.

I have a sony kdf-46e2000, there is a pinkish stripe on the top and bottom of the screen, what is causing that?


Looks to me as an serious (but not uncommon) PSP board problem with Sony plasmas. Contact a Sony service center.

What problems have people had with quality control on these displays? Are they covered under warranty?
  1. Certain displays emitted an extremely loud buzz. This was covered by warranty repair.
  2. Certain displays had a problem with the Y/C delay on their S-video input. This was also correctable.
  3. One person reported red vertical lines on his display. Was this covered by warranty? Was it an input problem or a pixel problem?
  4. Afew bad pixels here and there are not covered under warranty. Largeclusters are generally covered. It's up to Sonys discretion. On the plus side, however, bad pixels are becoming increasingly rare. Mostpeople are reporting no bad pixels at all!
CALIBRATINGWhat needs to be calibrated on a plasma?
You needto calibrate most of the same things that need to be calibrated onother displays. About the only things that don't need to be done areconvergence and geometry. You can usually tinker with picture size andposition, but there's no need to deal with keystone or pincushionadjustments, etc.What is white level? What is black level? How are they adjusted?
Theadjustment for white level is usually labeled "Picture" (as onPanasonics) or "Contrast". "Brightness", on the other hand, refers tothe black level. Yes, this is apallingly counter intuitive. This FAQuses the terms "white level" and "black level", since they betterdescribe what you're actually adjusting, and they're the terms used byAvia and Video Essentials.
How do I adjust hue and saturation?
In another mysterious choice of terms, hue is controlled by the "Tint" setting,and saturation is controlled by the "Color" setting. This FAQ uses theterms "hue" and "saturation", since they're the terms used by Avia andVideo Essentials.
How do I set the white level on a plasma?
Youset the white level by adjusting the "Picture" setting. You will needto use a different test pattern than you would for a CRT. For both plasma displays and LCD displays, you should use the 10 IRE grayscalestep pattern. There are two criteria you want to match on your plasma.
First,you need to make sure the white level is low enough that your displayisn't thresholding (or clamping) bright levels. You should set thewhite level low enough that you can see each of the 10 IRE stepsdistinctly. The Sony seem not to exhibit clamping (in my limitedexperience), even at factory defaults, so this criterion may not beterribly useful.
Second, for the health of your display (e.g.to avoid burn-in), you should turn down the white level. Just becauseyour display can display blindingly bright pictures doesn't mean that it should. Plasma displays should be set between 21 fl and 25 fl light output; the Sony comeout of the factory at about 30 fl. On one ISF-calibrated Sony, 23fl was roughly equivalent to a Picture setting of -20 (in the usermenu, not the service menu). To set this precisely you'll need to bringin a calibration specialist, but you can do a lot of good by justdialing down the white level a lot. After seeing the display at 30 fl,23 fl will see very dim. But after a while, you'll find that 23 fl isplenty bright.
How do I set the black level on a plasma?
Youset the black level by adjusting the "Brightness" setting. You can usethe same test pattern you would use for any other display.
How do I calibrate grayscale (calibrate the color temperature)?
Unfortunately,this is one you can't do yourself. You need special equipment tomeasure the color. In fact, most ISF technicians lack the equipmentspecific to plasma calibration (a $15K gadget known as aspectroradiometer). But even the standard color measurement equipment(which calibrationists do have) will do a great job.
Thatsaid, one person who had his Sony display calibrated by an ISF specialist said that the Cinema / Warm setting was reasonably close to6500K out of the box. Using that setting is probably the best you'll doon your own.
If you're really determined to screw up yourdisplay, the RGB drive and cutoff settings in the service menu are used to adjust the color temperature.
How do I adjust the color decoder?
There are several issues here. Generally speaking, the Panasonic decoder seems topush blue a bit. The R-Y Axis Angle and B-Y Axis Gain in the servicemenu are used to correct this behavior.
There used to be aproblem on some Panasonics with the Y/C delay on the S-video input. Seethe Quality Control section for more information.
How do I adjust the gamma?
On the industrial model, there is a set of Advanced picture settings. Go to the Picture menu, turn Advanced on, and then hit the down-arrow. In the subsequentmenu you can adjust quite a few parameters, including select from a fewgamma settings.
This advanced menu appears to be missing from the consumer model.
How do I calibrate my consumer model given these missing menus?
Thereis apparently a way to activate these menus. Perhaps you can find acalibrationist or Panasonic technician would can turn them on longenough to do the calibration.
What's the overall calibration procedure?
In general, the order Avia sets out is the correct one. A more complete list is:
  1. White level (picture)
  2. Black level (brightness)
  3. Repeat (1) and (2) until you have a good balance.
  4. Grayscale (requires special hardware and mucking about in the service menu)
  5. Sharpness
  6. Hue and Saturation (tint and color)
  7. Color decoder (requires use of the service menu)
  8. Repeat (6) and (7) for red and green until you have a good balance.
SERVICE MENUHow do I access the service menu?
In a word, don't. See the service menu warningabove. If you're bound and determined to make use of the service menu,buy the service manual. It contains more than enough information foryou to ruin your display and/or kill yourself.

I have a RCA 42 inch 1080 HD Tv. My son decided to change my color setting. Is there a way to get the factory setting back? I have been playing with the different tint, contrast and color settings. I still...


well there is usually a tab in your pictuer adjusment screen that says reset. but if your tv doesn't have that tab i can give you a few adjustments.

first- your tint should remain neutral. so if it has a color scale of 1 to 100 it should be on 50
second- your contrast should be about 80% or what your eye likes. look at the black tones
when you are adjusting it.
third- your brightness would look good about 65% pay attention to whites in your picture
fourth- your color all depends on how your eye precieves it. so adjust it with out making the colors to
neon or too dull
fith- your sharpness should be turned down to about 15% to much gives the picture a grainy texture.
sixth- your color temp should be neutral or normal. if the tv gives numbers the selection that says 6500k is the best choice.

you could always buy a calibration disc for about $20 and that could help you even better because now you are using images targeting the individule adjustment.

you could always pay to have it profeesionally caibrated. ISF certified techs will come too your home and do all the adjusment with special color filters and light sensors to give it the best picture possible according to your room. i know best buy charges $250 for it

those are just some suggestions. and the adjustments i give you work greatest for me, so if you dont like the overall out come you can always tweek it to your eye. make sure you use a digital picture with a lot of color when your making your adjustments. i like using disneys "the incredibles"

Choosing a calibration tech - please help!


black levels in lcd depend 99% on the technology used lg uses ips panels well sammy and sony use the latter thats why they get a tad better blacks but ips generally do colors better and the fact that th lg we have, has the all new 10 bit panels in them i myself like the pop of the lgs color over the barley there difference of blacks between it, sony and sammy, my honest opinion and let me reiterate my own opinion well lets put it like this my friend this is honestly the best way to describe greyscale, its like a painters canvas while its not as close to accurate as possible well the colors will not be as close to accurate as possible the greyscale is the starting point period this guy adjust while you watch then when ur mind is tricked into liking it well hes done kinda con but not a 100 % i mean he shows up atleast greyscaling and well isf ccc is an art and a science ur tv is able to hold ruler straight scale from 10 to 100 man like i said earlier this guy will only give half the pie, save ur money, and after x-mas treat ur self i promise u wont be sorry i am loving mine and well its hard for a tv to impress me but this lg well i cant quit playing with Hey the response time in cinema mode is 2.7 seconds wow, and leave fresh contrast off that equals 40,000 dynamic contrast now that is torch mode, hey intelligent sensor can save u 65% thats alot, did u get extended warranty.
