If you don't mind me asking. How much did that calibration cost you?

Good afternoon everyone. I'm new here and this thread came up when I performed my first search. I apologize in advance, since my question isn't an exact fit to this topic but it's close. I have a 2009 Samsung Series 4 450 42" 720P Plasma TV. The model number is PN42B450B1DX7A. I am trying to find out how to access the service menu but am hitting a dead end. Samsung tech support states they don't have access to that information and the only code I could track down using Google doesn't work on my particular model. Would anyone here be able to steer me in the right direction?

Thanks for any help you can provide.

Default samsung UN40C6500

hey all,

Just upgraded my tv to a samsung UN40C6500. This tv is manufactured in lots of different countries, meaning there are different panel numbers for several of them. the panel is SS03.

I have been scouring the internet looking for calibration settings for this set. Picked it up for only 900 bucks on buy.com a few weeks back; regular price and current price everywhere for it is 1400 bucks. However, I'm having a lot of trouble finding the right settings for this set. I have a ps3 and a directv hddvr hooked up to it. If anyone has this set, please share your throughts/settings with me and this forum. Thanks in advance!

I have the 2010 Samsung 720p 42" Plasma (PN42C450). If anybody has some setting recommendations it would be greatly appreciated. It is for Blu-ray, Xbox, and TV in a fairly dark room.

Thanks

Default Settings for Samsung UN46C6400 for movies?

Don't get me wrong, the picture quality on this TV is awesome, but not for movies, at least me and my wife do not think so... What I mean is that picture is so unrealistically sharp when watching movies (not Blu-ray, just regular HD channels), so it feels like it was made with cheap film as opposed to professional movie type film.

This is great for cartoons and some shows but not for movies. I tried different modes (normal, movie, etc) and the results are very similar.

Anybody has any tips on how and what to tune? Is it possible to do at all on this model?


Thanks!

as you can see in my post above, i'm not happy either. I have the 6500 series tv, which is the same tv as your, just with internet options. I'm still trying to get some good settings as well. If I get any I'll let you know. Until then, hopefully someone posts some settings for this tv that make everything look good.

Hey guys....just registered! Nice place!

Just got my new 46" Samsung HD 1080i LN46B500. Watch TV on DirecTV, and my box displays that my picture is showing 1080i....just want to make sure it looks the BEST it possibly can!

Wondering what the absolute BEST SETTINGS for picture quality on this TV are? Use it mostly for TV viewing -- SPORTS....so lots of motion, but when there's LOTS of action (during NFL or tons of colors from WWE when my son watches), it seems like my picture goes a little grainy. Not digging it. SO - need some HELP!

Here are my current settings....let me know where I'm going wrong at! Thanks!

Backlight: 7

Are you sure it's 1080i? Not sure why any manufacturer would make a 1080i tv anymore. 1080p is clearly superior.

Hi all, just joined and I need some help with the video settings on my plasma tv. It's a Samsung 58" 5+540 Model # PN58C540G3F.
I Only use it for Blu-rays and x-box 360.

What I'm currently finding is that the darker areas are usually completely black. But if I raise the contrast or brightness it gets washed-out looking, and if I lower the contrast, it doesn't look much better at all. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

un55c6300...just got this TV. Does anyone have this TV if so what settings do you use? I cannot adjust the picture the way i like it i have been tinkering with the darn thing for days now. Last night i adjusted them to a smiliar tv (i think it's an 8 series though) and it looks ok, but i was wondering if someone out there with this tv, has their settings on. Thanks guys.

p.s. forgot to mention last night i noticed some flashlighting issues on the bottom left and lower portions of the screen, debating on exchanging this unit for one without this issue, but from reading online it's a hit n miss thing.

I haven't liked a bunch of the online picture settings I've found maybe try getting that new disney DIY calibration disk thats getting good reviews, I'm thinking about picking that up.
Because it's easier to have courage from a safe distance away.

hmmm...last night i popped in a sony blu ray and tried to calibrate it using their secret calibration menu (after inputting 7669 at the main menu and hitting enter)... but then i was watching a movie on netflix and i did not really like those settings. Here are the ones I did that i found for similar model:

http://forums.cnet.com/7723-19410_10...;forum-threads

Is the disney thing like on their blu rays or is it an actual stand alone calibration disc?
