Contrast Resolution Problem

I just purchased this portable player and there is something wrong with the contrast or the sharpness. Everything looks like there is a shadow or cartoon image on there faces and it won't adjust. The best image looks cloudy and I have to set the contrast to max (9) in order to get that. I have tried every adjustment possible for the screen resolution. Am I doing something wrong? Does this unit maybe have an adjustment screw inside it. Is there something I can do to fix it myself or do I need to send it back?

My screen color is a neg. picture....tried adjusting contrast,sharpness,ect...nothing is working

The player has a serious video problem, cause bad laser pickup, video processor chip, or the LCD screen is faulty. To fix this type of issue would not be productive, cheaper to get a new player.

Low/No contrast on main screen

There should be a setup menu for "video" where the brightness and contrast can be adjusted.

Grainy Picture Denon 1740 DVD and Samsung 1080P LA40M81BD

Firstly, you should alter the picture settings on the TV. Most TVs have independant settings for tuner, scart and HDMI, so you may need to do this several times. Once for each.

Excessive contrast and/or sharpness on an LCD causes graininess, particularly around the edges of moving objects.

Check and adjust the following on the TV:
  • Contrast - about 65% max
  • Sharpness - 20%
These settings are a % of maximum, so you may need to work out a value if max is not 100.

Also turn off any contrast enhancements - (Contrast + / Digital
Contrast etc.) dependant on make.

I assume that you are using the upscaling facility of the Denon 1740 via an HDMI lead. If so, disconnect any other connections between the DVD and TV, particularly scart. If the scart is connected the TV will auto-switch to the scart input when you use the DVD, and you will not get the benefit of the high def connection.

This is probably obvious, but make sure the DVD is set to 1080p scaling, and you will need to manually select the HDMI input on the TV.

Scanner resolution

resolution is scan density x dpi; dot per inch. contrast is the control that you seem to be looking for.

Tip: before you send them, look at what you have.

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

Picture adjustment questions

*The brightness control setting determines how bright your picture will be. *The contrast control sets the gain of the video circuit. This determines the difference between dark and light scenes. Low contrast settings make the picture "hazy". High contrast settings make the picture more distinction between dark and light scenes. *The sharpness control determine the frequency response of the video circiut. High sharpness settings give better resolution but also shows more noise in your picture. Lower sharpness settings smoothe out the picture removing noise but also fine detail. It needs to be set for the best all around picture. *Picture Enhancement is pre-set adjustments which give you different picture qualities. You just select the one you like. Stargazer
