It depends on what your using it for, adjust colour tones to what you think looks natural, contrast between 80-90, keep sharpness below 30. just have a play around till you find what best suits the source material.

Im wondering what best picture settings for samsung LE37R87


Take a look at www.televisioninfo.com. They test tvs and calibrate them beforehand to get the best performance. Picture settings are given in the review. If they havent tested your model, they may have tested a similar one.

What are the best settings for my samsung lcd tv 620 series


You only have the preset picture settings and the custom settings to use in the user menu.. Only your eyes can tell you what you like. The only other way to get a really killer picture is to have a Professional ISF Video Calibrator calibrate the set.

Best tv settings for samsung LE40A457


Best is kind of subjective since each person's eyes are different. If you are looking for a bright and vivid picture, you can go to the picture mode and change it to that setting. Usually it is called something like "Vivid" or "Dynamic." Besides that, it is all user preference. Most people prefer to just use the factory default settings.

What are the best picture settings for a ln32b360 samsung lcd tv.


Well, picture settings for this tv, is basically personal preference, size of the room, distance you will be from the tv, ect. even the lighting in the room. Changing any of these factors can change what resolution you wanna put your tv into. As well wide or full screen is a personal preference. The best thing to do would be simply play with the display settings and see what works the best for you. Telling you exact settings may not work for you.

Lcd tv hookup


Ive got 3 samsung tv's (lcd, plasma, DLP) and I use HDMI cables on all of them. Its the only way to get the full potential out of the tv. When you use the red/white/yellow RCA cables the signal is anolog aka "old technology". Component cables are good but HDMI is the best. HDMI is a digital signal and thats what all the components that go with the tv should be run on. If your dvd player does not have an HDMI output I would suggest getting one that has that output. As for the cable box most require you to upgrade to digital cable in order to get one with an HDMI output. If you dont want to spend the money on new components and run what you have now the picture will stay mediocre at best. Good luck hope this helped

The set may not be at fault. If you are on cable some channels are still in anolog and some are digital. if you are on a nolog channel the picture will look preaty bad compared to the digital ones.
