I have just bought LG 47LW5700 LED TV and not really satisfied with the standard color and picture settings.

Is there's any recommended settings that can satisfies while watching the programmes.

Thanks

You can buy a consumer calibration disk or download the free AVS 709 disk from this site to properly set the main user controls. You can also hire a pro to fully calibrate the set for you. You can spend many hours learning how to perform a full calibration and invest 2x what a pro would charge in software entry level hardware so you can do it all yourself.

But using other peoples settings is not going to do anything for you.. consumer level hardware is not accurate enough to be the same from set to set.
Check the forum for you display type and look for the thread dedicated to your set, you will find lots of numbers posted.. once you try 2 or 3 different set of number you will understand what I mean.

Where in the country are you located, there are DIY Enthusiast like myself that have invested the money and may be willing to do a full calibration just for the experience.
Looks like this is your first post.. spend some time and do some reading.

@ babbulu99, Why not just go into your tv set-up. Then your picture setting set-up and use the Picture Wizard.

Of course I want to use the picture wizard but I need the actual range of settings for pic wizard.

Airscapes said it best. Get one of the cal disks (like the free AVS-HD709) and set the basic settings yourself (contrast, brightness, sharpness, aspect, color,etc). That can go a long way in improving your pq without getting into a full calibration which requires the use of meters and special software. Every tv that comes off of the production line is going to be different due to spec ranges so "sharing" settings doesn't always work. Besides, the environmental conditions are different for everyone (lighting, use of a bias light, etc) and there is personal preference that comes into play as well.

on my 2011 LK450 the picture wizard can be found under the picture menu and is meant for the ISF Expert 1 pic mode
