Best quality picture


This is likely a simple settings issue.

A lot of people don't realize that backlight settings can affect the picture.

Go to the menu (press menu on your remote)

The menu will show picture options. Just toy with different settings until you find what you want. It may be on a preset setting that doesn't work. If you are in a bright room, you will need to increase brightness and contrast and perhaps backlight.

Usually an unclear picture is due to the contrast, backlight, and brightness settings being too low. You can also increase sharpness.

I suggest a contrast setting of 70, a brightness setting of 60-80, and a backlight setting of above 80.

Good luck.,

Sharp Aquos LC42d64u has blurry picture...


Hi,

Is it slow and blurry? if yes then return it to warranty immediately. The video processing circuits are malfunctioning and the repair cost is prohibitive if you must pay for it on your own.

I hope it is still under warranty. So, do not delay getting it into the Sharp Authorized facility or back to the retailer you purchased it from.


The connection cable you use could have something to do with it, but is should work on all formats. The best for reliability and absence of blocking is just analog composite - but that is also the lowest picture resolution. S-video is okey too, but it is analog as well. Component is the highest grade; going to hdmi is just another way of receiving the signal - I don't think it will effect the error correction problem in any way. My opinion.

Goodluck..

FOGGY-HAZY PICTURE


The contrast setting should always be more than the brightness setting, it's purely common sense to have the black levels dark and the white levels light. I advise your brightness to be 40, and your contrast to be set to 60.

You shouldn't alter the hue, as most manufacturers would have spent significant time balancing this anyway, so set this to 50 and leave it alone.

The saturation shouldn't be altered too much, the best bet is to set this to 55 and let it be. Also, the colour temperature shouldn't be changed atall, so set this to the default setting and leave it alone.

As for the sharpness setting, this should definitely be set quite low. I advise setting the sharpness to 40, and the reason for this is most people assume that the higher the sharpness the better quality and detail, and they're completely wrong.

If you do what I said, you should end up with a crisp, smooth and colourful picture.

Sharpness of the image


Hi,
Putting sharpness up to high will cause the opposite effect. To get the correct level of detail you are looking for you need to adjust all your settings, especially your contrast and brightness levels. A good guide would be cnet.com. They have several posts for TV settings for HDTV. Goof luck. Please post back to let me know how things go.

Sony BRAVIA KDL-40W4000


Hi there,

I've been looking into this myself as I've also recently purchased the KDL-40W4000. I was watching a murky old film and was getting a bit of sludgy ghosting but found that by reducing the contrast to 25, setting the backlight on low, colour on neutral and the brightness about 40-60 (and taking ALL advanced noise functions off), this reduced the ghosting considerably.

BUT, this is quite a cool and dark image. If you watch standard TV and films mainly, a variation of the Cinema setting is probably the best overall setting i.e.

backlight: min
contrast: 79
brightness: 50
colour: 53
colour temp: Warm 2 (although Warm 1 is less yellow and still fine)
sharpness: min
noise reduction: off
mpeg nr: off
contrast enhancer: off
colour space: standard
