Set my one like this:
picture mode=User1, contrast=60, Brightness=60, colour=30, sharpness=100, tint=standard setting.
colour temp.=cool, XD: contrast=off, colour=off, xdnr=high, mpeg nr=15.
Used gold plated scart for dvd & sky, picture looks pretty good, have not tried hd yet. Initial settings when first switched on were **** but with some tweaking have got good results.You probably have it set up pretty good now but just got mine & thought I would post this anyway.

Quality is in the eye of the beholder. Female have 2 times the color receptors in their eyes so they tend to be more particular about colors. Adults over the age of 19 begin to yellow their eye lens until brightness and contrast become a major issue as young as 40. And critics don't mind offering their opinions especially on TV settings. The easiest way to gain their incite is to google the "manufacturers name" followed by the "model number" and the word "review". Good luck.

How do i get my tv to run 1080p

A 1080p set will only show 1080p if the broadcast or satellite co sends it. I don't know of any cable co's doing that as yet. True HD isn't in full motion as yet. 720p is your best right now unless you have a Blue Ray DVD Player along with a 1080p full hd movie then you can watch full HD.
A lot of stations are running 1080i which is good for slow motion movies. 720p is best for fast action movies.

Tv is showing 480p and we want it at 1080p on our new Toshiba 40XV648 40-Inch 1080p 120Hz HD LCD TV Cinema Series.

After searching the owners manual I find that there is nothing mentioned about the screen resolution i.e. 480p to 1080p.

This set is capable of your desired resolution and as far as I can tell it auto selects because it senses the input video and decides which is the best setting for that source.

It's important to understand that you need 1080p video to use it at it's full capabilities. It won't give you a 1080p resolution from a VCR or a standard DVD player. You need a DVD player that is capable of producing a 1080p encoded video. Some satellite receivers are capable of that but you need to make sure you know what resolution that you are sending to the television.

Local TV stations won't usually broadcast HD at 1080p. Your best bet is to use a DVD player that is capable of that high resolution for your best picture.

Please note that what it says in the owners manual about "Resolution" has nothing to do with the 480p, 720p or 1080p signals, your set selects that automatically it will start by selecting the 1080p then goes to 720p then 420p it's dependent on the video you send to the set.

Please note the "resolution" function is actually like a "sharpness" control.

Your video input (tuner, VCR, DVD, games and etc.) is likely your problem.

Take time to get used to the settings, you may think the screen looks dull at first. The truth is most people have way too much contrast on their TVs.
These settings will also work for Cable or Dish hookups, in which case you may change the Noise Reduction option to Medium to reduce signal noise.

Edge Enhancement Option Disabled...

edge enhancement option i think would be enabled if you are in dynamic or movie mode. What it does is to enhance the contrast of the edges of 2 different colors.

I have the LA32S8, similar specs but only 7000:1 CONTRAST ratio. when playing dvd, i set it to movie mode. Settings vary on different tv and player. you can adjust first the backlight, then brightness then contrast, color and sharpness. the brightness you adjust by choosing the level that shows enough details on dark scenes. adjust if its too dark not to see the details of the scene. contrast, you can set by distiguishing vivid colors of the picture, dont put too much contrast as your picture would look flat. it should have a 3d look, same also with sharpness, you can experiment on the face of a person to show details on the edges.
color you set just enough to make it accurate on color reproduction.

My settings for movie are
contrast 92
brightness 49
sharpness 23
color 57
tint g48 r52
backlight 7
tone warm1
digital NR off
black adjust high
dynamic ocntrast high
gamma +2
edge enhancement on
color space auto

I have a LG 50 LCD TV Model: 50LN5700-UH that has a black screen. There are a couple of things I have tested and replaced. First off there is audio but just a black screen. I turned off the lights and looked for signs of back lights. When I did this there were no visible signs of lights. In addition, I did the flashlight test. Which showed visible signs of lettering on the screen with the flashlight. Which if I understand correctly it may determine that the T-Con board is functional. I ordered additional LCD's from Shop Jimmy and replaced the bad sticks. About half were replaced. I reassembled the TV and I am still getting no video, but I still have audio. However, this time all the LCD's are functioning so now the screen is still more grey than black because of the working LCD's I replaced. What voltages and at what points should I be testing to narrow down the problem, or what other problem-solving technique should I be testing? One other thing I should mention is there no visible signs of swollen capacitors or any signs of burn marks. I am 99% sure I connected all of the cabling up correctly, not 100% since this was my first attempt but I am a little less confident I put the filters in the correct way. I had the TV disassembled while I was waiting on the LCD's to ship and when I re-assembled I was less confident if I picked up all 3 or 4 filters and set them down, or if I make have flipped the filters to keep the circuit board on the front cover from being damaged. Hope that make since.
