I just got a 55B650 store display model. Everything looked fine until I decided to check the hours in the service menu and hit "HDMI Calibrate" by mistake. After that the screen looked very dark on 1-3 HDMI ports (have not tried other ports)
I used the checkboard pattern at 1080 (I believe) and used zoom feature on my up-converting hdmi dvd player to reset the brightness of the TV, but the TV now looks way too bright (grey).
What is the best way to restore it the way it was?
1. Is there a list of menu items that I could adjust one by one? If not, is there a chance someone could post that list (screen shot(s))?
2. is there a software/firmware update for this set that would recalibrate the set and reset service menu back to what it should be?
3. are these settings input specific? If so, can they be copied from one input to another? It looks like all HDMI settings got messed up when I accessed "HDMI Calibrate", but did other inputs change as well (I have not tested other inputs)? If the other inputs haven't changed, I guess I could just copy Component Video settings to HDMI somehow?

I used checkboard pattern a while ago, when I messed it up, but not the right one and I used zoom on my upconverting dvd player to cover the whole screen. It cut the picture off at the edges, but the tv became usable again, although not as good as it was and I switched to component video.
I just tried the settings from the picture I attached in my earlier post and it seems to work. Now I can't really tell the difference between component and HDMI.
What else is there that gets messed up by a calibration misstep? I have access to the same set and I can copy the rest of the settings if I need to. I didn't look at other settings, not sure what else is there, afraid to touch this thing now, plus it seems to work.. . but if there's something else that got messed up and can easily be fixed, I'd like to know about it.
