LG 2012 LM9600 Tips and Tricks By Joel Silver
Just got the new LG LM9600 for testing....
We found a couple of glitches that are easy to calibrate around, and here we will let you know about them.
1 - We calibrated it brand new, and after running it for about 100 hours we took reading again to see how out of the box calibration looks like after break in. There were significant differences so we can confirm that these LCDs with LED backlights do indeed need to be run in before calibration!
2 - NOTE - The main visual and measured glitch is a flash of blue from the screen upon making adjustments - after the initial flash, the adjustment takes hold properly, but that same flash sends your meters off the screen for a moment. Not a problem if you expect it!
3 - The "magic" remote, which is maddeningly hard to use for calibration. You will want a regular remote, or a universal with LG codes with them to save time and frustration.
4 - CMS primary color x,y points are close and hard to improve - luminance "Y" is off and easy to fix - then secondary points are easy to fix
5 - NOTE - White balance procedure -
(1) First use 2 point with external source
(2) Then use 20 point on internal patterns starting at 100 and working down to 10
(3) Then you will be reasonably close to JND
(4) If needed, touch up with external 10 step patterns by using the three surrounding 20 point adjustment levels (example, for a minor error at 40 IRE adjust at 35/40/45) and evaluate once again.
Thanks for the Info Joel
This must mean some of the sets are now in the US. Canada?
