Hi,

I just bought the Samsung UN40ES6580F four days ago and I didn't see a calibration thread for it within AVS Forum, so I figured I'd start my first one. I have minimal experience calibrating, so I'm FAR from being an expert. My prior experience is based on my other TV (Samsung LN46A750) four years ago and it's still kicking ass. So, to start it off I decided to use the same settings from my Samsung LN46A750, copy them to the new TV and work from there. I know, you're not supposed to mix them up because it's a different TV set, but what the hell, I did it anyway.

Considering I don't have a meter or anything like that, I think it looks pretty good, but it could probably use some improvement. I'm still fiddling with it to get that extra "pop" and skin tones right. I'm hoping some more experienced calibrators with equipment can jump on this thread and share some settings.

Thanks so much for the settings post and that helps me a lot. I am not real experienced in doing calibration either and i usually find the settings that look right from posts in the forums. I will try them and let you know how they work for my situation. Thanks again.

Just got the ES6580, awesome tv so far, i pretty much dialed in similar settings to jworitz, only i dialed in DYNAMIC mode, i know its not the "right" mode but i like the colors dynamic mode gives and the pop it adds.

i set brightness at 43 and sharpness at 10, backlight at 10, contrast at 100, thats prettty much it , of course i turned off all the crap Eco setting and the AUTO noise filter etc

i set Auto Motion plus to SMOOTH as i love the opera effect and want maximum smoothness.

How did you determine these settings? Did you use a colorimeter?

I recently purchased a UN55ES6580F, but it doesn't have the good look that my older Toshiba has. I started calibrating it, but it looks like there isn't a mode to set it to pixel exact mode. I pulled up the various calibration images from http://www.w6rz.net/ and the horzpix1.ts which is suppose to show nice crisp lines gets aliases occasionally.

Does anyone know how to set this TV to pixel exact mode?

I've also pulled up the green field and I can tell right away that it's a bit washed out, and the grey scale is a little red. I'll post more as I play with the calibration of the set.

Thanks.

Set Picture Size to "Screen Fit". Silly name, eh?

Thanks, I just found that myself too. Yes, it is a silly fit.

Things are looking a bit better now that I've turned down the red, but the green is still a funky color. It's not the deep green that I'm used to instead is more like a whitish green, but the grey scale looks a lot better.

Now for sleep. smile.gif
