I recently bought a Sharp LC-70C8470U and have been working off and on to calibrate it. I've had this particular TV for 6 days (first one is going back to Costco....was unable to tone down blue enough for a decent cal).
The day after I first turned on the TV, I dialed in the "movie" mode. Since then, I had not taken any measurements for 4 days, but today, while prepping to calibrate the HTPC, I noticed that blue had jumped up by 5%. Subsequent measurements and comparison to saved HCFR files with exact calibration parameters confirmed that blue is, on average, 5% higher now.
My question is, do you think this is the TV (perhaps breaking in) or the meter (i1 Display Pro/i1D3)? The TV is LCD/LED and I've read that they don't "break in" as a plasma does. I've also read that they do need a bit of time to stabilize.
I've triple checked that the HCFR settings are the same (as initial measurements) and that the calibration parameters are correct.
I"m concerned about the jump in blue because this is why the first TV is going back.
Thanks in advance for input.
