What you are seeing, is exactly what I was seeing before the 1035 update. Then after the 1035 update, the picture became more vibrant with inky black levels. Then after this 001040 update, the picture went back to the way it was before the 1035 update.
What I tried and what has worked AFTER the 1040.8 update was a full reset via "Support," "Self-Diagnosis" and "Reset."
You lose your settings but after tinkering around with them for the past two months, I know them by heart! (I use "Standard," - 10 backlight, 90 contrast, 40 brightness & sharpness, with Dynamic Contrast "Low," AMP set to "Clear." All running through my Yamaha RX-A2000 receiver.)
I believe Anthony is right - - at least on my TV, all the improvements of the 1035 update were completely undone by the 1040.8 update and the only way I got them back was via the hard "Reset".
I'm not sure if this is/was the reason for the improvement, but it worked for me.
And...I have no idea on why folks are getting different results with this update.
