Default E3d470vx

Does anyone have any settings for the VIZIO E3D470VX that they are happy with? I tried some of the settings that I have found online and I think they are way too dark, so I have my backlight at 75. Also, my color settings all at 128 look a lot better than anything I have found. Any help would be appreciated.

Question Vx42l

I picked up the VX42L, a 42" LED / LCD from 207 at an estate sale today, making me The Last Person On Earth To Get An HDTV. :-)

I had an exceptional SD TV before this, but the settings are still challenging me. I understand (now) that the contrast should be as HIGH as possible, and the brightness as LOW as possible (the exact opposite to the way I set up SD TVs). I also get now that the backlight should only be used to make up for ambient light in the room.

Has anybody had their VX42L professionally calibrated in the past, and willing to share the resulting settings? I'd like to get this one calibrated professionally, but don't know when the money will be available.

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer me, especially in getting the most accurate color possible! This is a fantastic idea for a thread.

I have a
Vizio E5001-B1

Does anyone have any idea what the best way to calibrate it is?
I'd rather get help from you all, rather than pay exorbitant fees.

Thanks in advance!

Greetings from the California coast:
I have the Vizio E550i-B2

My first HDTV in 2001 was ISF calibrated. At the time it was worth the $600.

I would have responded sooner but I've had electrical issues in my apartment, in a house that's over a hundred years old.
My Vizio has been plugged into a weak outlet. After changing the outlet, I discovered a new level of excellence.
I would not have believed how much the quality of the electrical current going to the set can effect performance.

I'm happy with my Vizio even in comparison with my Plasma. I still have some color issues, but nothing disturbing.

The Disney WoW disc is $18 on Amazon. It is the easiest to use of the set-up discs and it has more features and levels than you'll ever need.
It does the job, short of a pro calibration.

After I solved the electrical problem, I used the Disney WoW disc for a fresh set-up. Then I watched the finale of Jackson's King Kong.
I've seen it on three of my units many times. Always impressive but it's so optimized now it's like I'd seen only half the detail.
We don't need to show you no steenking IMAX.


I don't need the Vizio local dimming feature. I turned it off in the first week I had it.
The blacks are superb on their own-- at least in my dark viewing environment.

You can download the full instructions for the WoW Disc and explore before you buy:

Tips for WoW
I've discovered these along the way:

In a totally dark room I built my settings with the backlight at 69.
Check Picture Size for pixel-to-pixel fit.
Set up for 'Contrast' and 'Brightness', Sharpness and Color

Start 'pure' with special features off.
Black Detail- low or off
Active LED zones- off
Reduce signal noise- off
Black Noise- off
Film Mode Auto...

Create a pre-set name in your set up menu.
"Calibrate" using Movie or Cinema. I forget what Vizio calls it.

Start with Contrast, then set Brightness.
You should have three shades of white on the high end. The high end is critical. There's a tendency to drive it too high and create 'clipping'.
But a bright 'specular' white is essential. Just don't blow out the lesser whites. This is explained on the disk.

Once you have Beginner's level set, fine tune your shadows and whites using the Advanced patterns.
You'll know you have it right when you don't care about settings anymore and you just want to find someone
to come in at look at this amazing almost-3D picture.

If anyone has a 600i-b3 and has settings for it they are happy with I would love it if you shared. I'm pretty much ready to put mine on craigslist, I hate the color so much.

Question Picture Settings

Hello I would like help with picture settings. What are the best settings you have found? I always seem to end up with people looking too yellow and redheads don't look as red as they should. I have a Vizio E320-A1 version V2.07.

Some of the settings on here has you adjusting blue red or green colors. I don't have that section in my settings. (I just discovered that section) my scale for those is 0 to 100

Any help would be great

Thank you but I can't change the colors under temperature unless it's in custom. My TV is a Vizio E320-A1 I don't have gamma either that I can tell.

Default Vizio GV47L FHDTV10A LCD

I just inherited this from my sister, and I love it. In order to calibrate it, I ran a THX optimizer first for a quick baseline, then used the Digital Video Essentials DVD for the rest. This thread really helped me as well. So here goes:

Picture Mode: Custom
Backlight: 50
Contrast: 91
Brightness: 53
Color: 54
Tint: +2
Sharpness: 2
Color Temperature: Normal

Advanced Picture Adjust:
DNR: Off
Black Level Extender: Off
White Peak Limiter: Off
CTI: Off
Flesh Tone: Off
Dynamic Backlight: Off
Adaptive Luma: Off

From the audio side, I left the surround off - even though I liked the atmospheric quality, dialogue became very difficult to understand.

I found that using other picture modes, especially Game, could really make the picture pop and was quite pleasing to the eye at first, but was pretty inaccurate when it came to color and was actually a pretty noisy picture. The levels I settled on seem the most natural and the most compliant with the calibration materials I have. I would really like to check out a HDTV calibration disc for some more fine-tuning. Can anyone recommend one?

So, I bought the vizio 42" m422i-b1 because it was THE largest I could fit in my girlfriends entertainment center and I loved the picture/features. However, I really want to get the best possible picture settings on this tv and there's a rub to this. I did a lot of googling and researching and even called Vizio and 99% of what I've seen talks to how to get rid of the soap opera effect. Now, assuming the SOE is the "hyper-real" looking picture that almost looks 3D....that's what I LIKE. I don't want to eliminate that, but calibrate TO that. So you can see my quandary.


Can anyone give me an idea of settings I should use for this model TV that will give me that effect?


Thanks in advance!
