My suggestion would be to start with the Rtings settings:
If you want to disable the light sensor mentioned then look at the Eco settings in the i-Manual. Turning off the light sensor seems to make the backlight setting have more range. The Rtings settings may be dark if you have much light in the room, but here are basically the only controls that might be worth changing:
Turning this up will increase the light output of the entire image. Both black and white will get brighter when turning up the control, which will help overcome light in the room.
Turning up this setting should cause the TV to come out of black quicker.
Color Temperature -
You may want to use Warm 1. That will make the picture more blue and a little brighter, which might be less objectionable than an uncalibrated Warm 2.
White Balance -
Unless you know how to change these controls then leave them at the default zero setting. The white balance settings will vary from TV to TV, so it doesn't work to use the white balance settings from another TV.
Basically turning up the backlight or turning up the gamma setting will cause the TV to come out of black quicker. Using Warm 1 instead of Warm 2 would make the TV more blue and maybe less objectionable. Leave the white balance at the defaults.
And on both, I have to set brightness at around 66-68 to be able to see all of the squares.
The default 50 setting should be close for above-black information with a standard video input. A few clicks higher or lower seems reasonable, but generally getting into the 60s probably means that you are mainly making black gray and decreasing the contrast between black and white. If you want to make black gray the backlight can do that, and if you want to come out of black quicker then increasing the gamma control should do that.
