This post is to document what we see with the as delivered service menu settings and preset modes.
For this set of captures, I set my service menu to match the jam2001 default factory settings in column 1 of his spreadsheet. So my 52XF550U matches what he had coming from the factory.
I set the tv to sports mode and used HCFR to capture the performance.
Red and Blue are near the REC 709 targets. Green, Magenta, Cyan and Yellow are all missing their targets by quite a bit.
The brightness range is .017 ftL to 109.078 ftL for a contrast ratio of 6545:1
109+ ftL, no wonder it strains my eyes!
The Cool setting drives Blue at about 170% of Green and Red at about 50% of Green.
The Cool temp setting drives the white temp to over 12000 for all of the measured points.
The Standard preset follows.
The CIE chart looks much like the Sports mode, but Cyan and Yellow are a little closer to their targets, Magenta is a bit further out.
Brightness ranges from .024 ftL to 67.706 ftL for a contrast ratio of 2876:1
The Medium temp setting drives Blue at about 130-140% above Green and Red at 60-70% of Green. The White point is around 10500 for the Medium temp setting.
Movie and PC modes will be in the next post
