It's a Toshiba 50L1350UC.

I tried doing it myself but I can't get a good picture. Does anyone have any settings I should use?

Thanks.

Did you use patterns? If not, download the free AVS HD 709 and use it to set your basics: Contrast, Brightness, Color, Tint, Sharpness. More advanced controls shouldn't be touched without a meter if accuracy is your goal.

Adjusting settings according to personal preference is not calibration.

Epson 5030UB, 100" Carada Criterion with Classic Cinema White, Onkyo TX-NR818, Energy Veritas 5.1s and a Veritas 5.2C , NHT SuperZeros, Mirage Omni S10, Oppo 103D. Currently boxed up: Denon 1713, Klipsch SW-450, NHT Absolute Center, Energy V-Mini-C

Welcome to the forum. It is a persistent myth in the home theater hobbyist community that picture accuracy can be consistently improved by copying settings from a calibrated display of the same make and model. This link is from the "sticky" threads at the top of this section of the forum, and explains why such practice is unreliable or even detrimental in some cases:

'Sharing display menu settings?'
