Hi,

I would like to know the best picture settings for the LC-70LE650U. Is it the same as the 60 inches or the settings are differents for the 70 inches ?

I found 3 sites, but with very different settings, which one is good ?

- http://reviews.lcdtvbuyingguide.com/sharp- lcd-tv/sharp-le650u-picture-settings.html
- http://www.tweaktv.com/tweak-my-tv/ calibration-guide/sharp-lc60le650u.html
- http://forums.cnet.com/7723-19410_102-589931/ sharp-lc-60le650-picture-settings/

I await your response as soon as possible.

Best Regards,
Willow

By my eyes the Cnet settings are the best for me.  I have not done a disney WOW disk yet though.

I have also tried all three calibration settings and the Cnet one works best for me. I did tweak the Backlight setting a little. Moved it more to the middle area vs. -6 (or +16 in the other calibration setting).

Can someone tell me what this Disney WOW disc is?

Good luck!

huh?

It is a basic calibration disc that you can do at home without paying an ISF person to come out.  It won't be as good as an ISF tech but it works for the DIYer's.

Pixar and Star Wars movies have the THX settings on board in the disc menu. As does any movie with the THX logo.
Disney's Wow disc is more detailed in what it has the user do, but the results are not much different.

My picture seems grainy. I get weird grey and black pixelated squares during blacks and transitions.

Anyone know how to fix it. It almost seems like I 'm not watching in hd.

What settings are you using? What don't you like?

Keep in mind that very few will transfer well from set to set. Contrast, brightness often translate well. Color temp moderately. Gamma moderately.

That is why people use the free patterns available on AVS, on THX movie discs, etc, or spend a little on the Disney WOW disk, or better yet Spears and Munsil.

Each panel is different, and your room makes a difference.

I am using the settings from Cnet on the movie av mode, and I am using the ones from Z mad on game mode.Z mads settings were for the 640 but I read where a couple people liked them on the 650.

what I don't like really changes from show to show some shows are too bright others too dark and others I can't get the skin tones correct I would really just like to find one setting that works for everything or at least to where I can switch the AV mode to suit the show.

To set your expectation correctly, no one mode works for all content because the content providers, especially TV stations, are inconsistent with how they set up things on THEIR end.

That said, the best approach is to get the TV set correctly for an accurate incoming signal. This won't solve the problem of many stations sending you an incorrectly calibrated signal on their end. But you'll be seeing the right thing with quality sources like Blu-ray.

Try the CNET settings in Game Mode. Of the "using someone else's settings approach" these are the closest to correct that I have seen.

When I get my calibrator to visit (probably not until summer) I'll post the results.

Not sure if any brick and mortar stores carry this, but it is the best disk (ie, highest quality) http://www.spearsandmunsil.com/

Here is a run down of others, which you can check for at a local store:

when you read or hear someone mention "Disney Wow" video all they are referring to is a Blue Ray video with LOTS of color. the movie Avatar will provide the same Wow affect . Again - just a high color digital enhanced movie / blue ray.

Slypig that is really incorrect the Disney Wow disc is a purchasable item that has calibration tools on it.

 

See: http://www.amazon.com/Disney-WOW-World-Wonder-n/dp/B0045ASBUC

 

 

In fact it has a whole thread here on AVSforum:

I have had mine for 2 months now trying to fix the problem.  When I watch tv shows in HD from Time Warner like 'walking dead" the pixelated squares drive me crazy.  Some of the darker scenes are un-watchable.  When I watch sports or "bright" tv shows the picture is crystal clear I couldn't be happier.  But any programs on any channel from HBO-HD to Fox that have dark scenes all look like this or worse!  When there is a light source like say the moon and the sky is all black.. instead of a natural fade to black it is very blocky.  I took a couple of pictures of what I am seeing.

 

 

 

I did get a bigger TV when I purchased this one.  I sit about 6-8 ft from this 60" tv.  Am I just sitting to close?  My last TV was 55 inches and I never saw anything like this.

Not sure how close you are sitting or what brightness and other settings you have configured.

But unless you have some strange settings or a very poor source signal, the TV may need replacement. Does BLU-RAY look like that, too? If not, then it's likely the source and not the TV.

Ok this picture was taken up close to show what I am seeing from 10-12 feet away.  I got out the tape measure last night.  I don't think this a case of being too close as some of the seating in the room is 6-8 feet from TV.  However, I stood in my kitchen a full 22 feet from the tv and you can see all of these pixelated scenes without trying.  I don't believe it is the signal because there are many scenes from that episode that are beautiful but any dark scenes are bad.  I notice this issue on every channel and if I switch TV sets I don't see it, granted the other TV's are smaller 42 inches.

 

Settings: I have tried every setting posted that I could find from Cnet to tweaktv and some of my own preferences. These do not stop this dark/black object issue from happening.  I have noticed this issues on a Blue-ray DVD as well.  Here are some more examples of what I am seeing, notice the CNN pic is fine... Also look at the galaxy note shot and the way the "rings" of black fade from the light source...  Again if this is normal for this TV then just let me know so I can sell it and be done...

What you describe sounds like a broken TV.
