Maybe just a bad cal.
When these sets are set up by the geek squad they are usually done to the ISF standard. http://www.imagingscience.com/about.php
Usually that means a picture that is somewhat washed out are far as brightness colours.
Pirates Bay has settings on this site, but I use the ones in post 631
Be sure you write down your present settings before starting so that you can go back to them of so desired.
Watch the new settings for a couple of days to get use to them.
I have seen a isf calibrated set in best buy standing next to an non calibrated set .I always preferred the non calibrated because it had more punch and aliveness.
Before you start I would suggest you call geeks squad and see if they went into the service menu to do the calibration, If that is the case you will not be able to bring the set back the manufactures spec. Have them return and put the TV back to spec
Geek squad will always maintain the settings they gave are the best for detail If you are not happy it does you no good.
Also you probably paid money for the service/
I would suggest that you do not go into the service menu it is a dangerous place to be for an untrained individual.
There is some speculation that Samsung may void the warranty if they discover that you were tinkering with the service menu settings.
CNET provides settings for sets and they do not go into the service menu/
You have a sophisticated set there so use the settings provided by others and you will get the desired results.
It is suggested that you do not update to firmware 1029 stay at 1027
You can not reverse a firmware setting/ Read back a couple of posts and there are settings for the 1029 firmware
