Sorry for double post from other thread.

Just got a Samsung 46" Series 5000 (46UE5000) LED TV for my parent's Living Room. There is a lot of natural light in the room. They have no DVD or Blu-Ray player. The TV will be used for News, Hockey/Baseball and basic TV watching. I have searched to find the proper setting for the TV as it looks blurred to me. It is hooked up Component for now and showing 720 instead of the 1080 it should. Can anyone help me set this up for them?
Thanks in advance.

Component is hooked up to a set-top box? It may only output at 720p. It's possible the sharpness setting is turned too low as well as having DNR on might cause a softer image. I'd reset the image if you're not happy and go from there. Our Samsung is in a very bright room and we have the cell light at 8-12 depending on the device and contrast at 85 and brightness 45. Having the contrast too low can make the image look quite soft. Just check your settings to see that any post-processing functions aren't on (they're usually on the advanced picture sub menu and picture settings sub menu).

You may need to check your set-top outputs to see if it goes higher than 720.

Thanks.
I will try that tomorrow. I did get the 1080 working. It was a setting on the box that needed to be adjusted.

Hi all,

I just bought a samsung UE50F6400 and I'm looking to find the optimal settings or something close that people may have come up with. I've had a look at Nicks settings for the UN46F6400, would these also work for my model? TV set ups are still pretty new to me so I'm not sure whether the panels would be the same or not.

Thanks for the help!

Sorry they will not be of any use to you as every panel is different. Maybe consider a Professional Calibration or maybe go down the DIY route.

Not entirely true, it could be a good start. At least the basic settings anyways. The advanced CMS settings will probably throw the color off, but I would suspect brightness/contrast/color/tint/etc. would be fairly close to the same. I do agree however a DIY or professional calibration would be best.

They again can vary but can easily be corrected with most calibration discs.

Does anyone have setting for the h6400 series? I used the settings from a LCD tv review site but my blacks look all washed out. And dark scenes look terrible.

So I thought I'd share my results for others to try out and hopefully enjoy. The device I used was my PS3 connected via HDMI out, and a Blu-Ray calibration disc. The room is usually as dark as can be when watching movies or TV (and sometimes gaming), but I also use this display as my main computer monitor and the lights are usually on during that, but the calibration was done in the dark setting.

So, first things first. How bad was it in the first place?

CIE Diagram Before:



Gamma Before:



RGB Levels Before:



As you can see, the color levels were pretty off. Gamma wasn't too bad, but I wanted to bring it up a bit. Still didn't hit the 2.2 target but I think it looks better in the after.

So, here are my settings:

Picture Mode - Movie
Backlight - 11
Contrast - 82
Brightness - 45
Sharpness - 10
Color - 48
Tint - G47/R53
Picture Size - Screen Fit of course

Advanced Settings:
Dynamic Contrast - off
Black Tone - off
Flesh Tone - 0
Color Space - Auto (couldn't get the color space to adjust without screwing other stuff up badly, so left it alone. It's not TOO far off as you'll see in the CIE After Diagram)
White Balance (2 point):
R-Offset - 26
G-Offset - 25
B-Offset - 24
R-Gain - 17
G-Gain - 25
B-Gain - 18

White Balance (10 point):
Interval 1 - -2 Red, 0 Green, -3 Blue
Interval 2 - -1 Red, 0 Green, +4 Blue
Interval 3 - 0 Red, 0 Green, -5 Blue
All other intervals set to 0 for all three colors

Gamma - -1

Picture Options:
Color Tone - Warm2
Digital Clean View - off (preference)
MPEG Noise FIlter - off (preference)

Auto Motion Plus - Custom (I know most people hate this, I like its effect as long as it's set really low)
Blur Reduction - 2
Judder Reduction - 1
LED Clear Motion - off

So, after all of these settings, lets take a look at how things are now:

CIE Diagram After:


(The black triangle represents the reference, the white triangle represents what was measured. As you can see, the color space is off a bit. This was pretty much impossible to adjust right with the given controls)

Gamma After:


(The white line is reference, the blue line is measured)

RGB Levels After:


(Still a dip in blue at 40% but it's still well within acceptable levels. I May fool with it another time to see if I can get it perfect)

And there we have it. A pro-amateur-somewhat proper calibration. Hope this is helpful to someone!
all I have to say is WOW and Thank you <3 i thought my tv looked amazing already but your settings are really nice nice blacks loads of detail without being too dark or warm looking

In lighter viewing conditions I increase the backlight to 11.
