As a rule of thumb, set your picture settings at there bare minimum which is comforttable to watch.

this is so that as the lcd ages, you can increase the settings to compensate - increasing the life of your lcd alot

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.

Adjust backlight respectively asin the brighter the room the higher the backlight setting the darker the room the lower if you go below 16(if the room is totally dark, turn backlight to 0 and bump up brightness 3 or 4.

Good luck

p.s. the cinema setting is pretty darn good for out of box calibrations just turn off high contrast, colors, tru motion for normal non 100% computer generated movies for example, finding nemo and the rest of the animated movies look excellent with tru motion regular film is too video like it looks like soaps to me but hey you may like it so whatever floats ur boat do you have blu ray player, well if ur going to get one get the bdps350 as it does 24fps excellent and well so does your tv it actually uses 5:5 pulldown which is great. (leave tru motion off when feeding 24fps/ real cinema!)Great tv pick dont follow the hype lg is a good brand. lol no i dont work for lg just sick of the sony, samsung, sharp fans. As far as lcd goes lg70 is it right now. I didnt calibrate for sd but i would say they should be pretty close honestly. ill check when i get time.

Here are the settings:

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

Colour problem


I have default settings I normally use for most sets before I begin any kind of alingment. Contrast: 90% Brightness: 45% Color: 45% Tint: 50% If the brightness is to high or the contrast to low the color is off. Check your connections, there probably OK, but, it never hurts. If the settings don't help call a local authorized servicer in your area. Hope this helps.
