It's important to warm-up display first before any calibration to it.
These videofiles mp4 will warmup the display fast and intensive.
Play this video in loop for about 30 minutes - 1+ hour, because the fast alternate black/white flashing will warmup the display evenly and fast.
It has multiple uses too, try this innovation.

Warning: May cause seizure.

Pixel Jogger Breakin Improves PQ Plasma/LCD/LED TV...the only CORRECT way!

By simply displaying alternate Black and White screens in 30fps (= max NTSC screen 60Hz refresh rate), the PLASMA/LCD/LED pixels gets the CORRECT even/proper/intensive break-in/warm-up! All RGB Pixels will simply switches ON/OFF in 60Hz, this will jog/warm-up the pixels to switch faster and even.

Try it yourself, let the video play a few hours and see it yourself, you will notice it directly!.
PictureQuality comes to Life in your face! Testproof it yourself now!. (and also see the real differences between properly break-in/warm-up PLASMA/LCD/LED displays)

AMAZING overall (3D like) PictureQuality improvements in:
1) Higher Contrast/Deeper Black Level.
2) Higher Details Resolution.
3) Vibrant lifelike Colors (if your WhiteBalance is properly calibrated).
4) Faster/smoother movements.
Samples on youtube:

Pixel Jogger Breakin Improve your Plasma/LCD/LED TV...the only way!

a) Pixel Jogger.mp4 - 352 KB


b) Pixel Jogger plus PinkNoise.mp4 - 2 MB


c) WhitescreenIR.mp4 - 1 MB


Purpose: general pixel break-in/optimizer, IR/pixel resetter, image burnin/screen conformity preventer/eraser etc..
a) Pixel Jogger.mp4 flashes alternate 0% Black/100% White screens to switch the RGB pixels on/off in max. NTSC 30fps (frames per second) display mode.

This will warmup/cooling each pixel in the display properly/intensively.
-main use: general pixel break-in/optimizer, possible fix/revive stuck/dead pixels and related issues. (experiment which is best)
-maintenance run weekly/monthy or at will to keep the display at optimal performance.

b) Same as a) plus audio pink noise for break/burn-in the audio speakers/circuits.

Purpose: IR eraser plus pink noise audio optimizer.

c) WhitescreenIR.mp4 display 100% solid white screen to erase any IR effects, check every 5 minutes of play if IR is erased, else continue or Pixel Jogger.

Ok, share/spread your experience and results with us/others here/there etc..

Unnecessary overkill. Turn the TV (or projector) on, let it play some programming for 20-30 minutes. Start calibrating. NOTHING beyond that is required or even helpful.

On some displays, a warm-up period of at least one hour (and preferably 90 mins to 2 hours) can be ideal. The reason for this being the backlight on some displays doesn't reach 100% brightness within 20-30 mins. Such is the case with my LG CCFL-LCD (which other LG CCFL-LCD owners have noted in a thread here a couple of months ago). However, viewing normal full-screen programming is fine for this warm-up period, no need to resort to the things mentioned in post one.
