Default 52W3000 ISF Calibration Complete

This thread is intended for members to share their custom picture settings for all SONY model TV's.

To help make life easier for others...please try to include (but not limited to):

TV Model Number?
Weather it's an ISF Calibrated setting or Disc calibrated setting?
What Input Connection this setting is used for? (ex. HDMI, Component, Composite etc)
What device is connected? (dvd player, bluray player, cable tv ..etc)
What kind of room lighting you have? (dark, dim, bright etc)
Any key features that are turned on or that should be turned off?

Additional Info: *Calibrate Your HDTV*

*Please do not criticize settings being is a courtesy to those who cannot afford an ISF calibration or do not own a calibration dvd.

*Please also keep in mind that using someone else's settings may look good but it does not necessarily mean it will be ideal for your viewing pleasure and may require some tweaking.

*It is also NOT recommended for anyone to go into the Service Menu to make any adjustments.

I also posted this on AVS:

EDIT: I've added the calibration reports showing D65

I had my 52W3000 ISF calibrated this morning by Spencer Sight and Sound in Telford, PA. Overall I am happy with the final settings. Was it worth the $350.00, I'm on the fence about that. Black levels and color were improved the most. I was a little concerned on some of the settings the tech choose, but over all the picture is really clean.

Here are the settings he used after calibration:


Color Temp-Neutral
Noise Reduction-Off

Advance Settings
Black Corrector-Off
Advance CE-Off
Clear White-Off
Color Space-Wide
Live Color-Off
Detail Enhancer-Low
Edge Enhancer-Off

White Balance
RGain 0
GGain 0
BGain -6
RBias 10
GBias 2
BBias -10

Power Saving-Low
Light Sensor-Off

I hope this helps some people...........and maybe even saves someone $350.00
