Same model tvs require slightly different settings but u could try

Movie mode
Cell20
Cont90( 85-95
Bright53(47-55
Sharp15(10-40.depends sharpness set on box.
Color47( 47-51
Tint50/50(only varies 1 or 2
Col spc auto
Gamma 0
Warm2- if the skin colors etc. are too red on a lot of shows try lowering red gain about 2-3 and red bias 2-3 in white balance.Warm2 often is a bit too red.skin colors tell a lot about colors..Edit-.If after adjusting it does not look good and it's real dull or green,also Try raise the blue gain1-2,and/or blue bias 1-3.....plasmas look lowsy when thee screens have a lot of white/bright areas.
All extra stuff off

All Eco power saving stuff off

Use native resolution setting on cable box and allow 480p,720p,1080i



*******Edit ps" you will drive yourself crazy trying to adjust the white balance"..even the professionals with thousands of dollars worth of calibration equipment have problems getting plasmas calibrated.i suggest adjusting white balance ONLY if your skin tones look WAY too red(on warm2) with color setting of 50.Or lower flesh tone to -3.

Cel20
Con92
Brt46-47 or just where dithering starts on black screen
Shp40
Col50-54
Tint 50/50 or 53/47 if skin is too red
Colspc auto
Gam -1
FleshT -2 to -4
Warm2
Noise filt off
All extra stuff off


****White balance note one of the most important adjustment on the tv -if you can't see the difference that one number difference makes when adjusting different rgb gains for various screens your not going too make the tv look any better.Sorry too break the news

*Warm2 is the right setting.On a colorbars pattern with color at zero all the bars should look black and white with a very slight red tone and the white bar lower down should have a slight blue tone.

***bright room settings***
Cel20
Cont92-95
Brt52-55
Shp40
Col50
Tint50/50
Colspc auto
Gamm +1
Warm2
Noisfil off

I just purchased this Samsung 43" Plasma for my mothers bedroom which is pretty dark. I'm very pleased with it so far. At home I have two Pioneer Plasmas, 1-50" 720P (PDP-5080HD) & 1-60" 1080P (PDP-6020FP) I must admit, For the coin it's a steal. Best Buy has it on sale this week for $349.99 I remember a few years back I went shopping for a 50" plasma & purchased the Samsung FTP-5084 (50" 1080P) & the picture was outstanding, but had to return two of them that had issues within 30 days (bad QC overall) I decided to buy the Pioneer (720P) instead & I'm glad it did. Seems like Samsung has gotten their QC in order as of late. Not one dead pixel so far & I'm super pleased with depth of the video settings menu. I tweaked the video settings based on some of you that posted on this thread (Thank You all BTW) Also the internal speakers aren't that bad at all. I would like to mention, I'm using a Comcast HD box with a HDMI cable & Antenna's Direct "Micron R" indoor antenna & she is picking up a decent amount of OTA channels. Seems like the OTA tuner I pretty strong. I hope that Plasmas will continue to be manufactured, but with Panasonic dropping-out, my bet is Samsung & LG will follow as well.

Hello. I am about to purchase this TV for 299$ before tax at a local shop. I have a couple of questions before i make the purchase.

I have heard a lot of complaints in this thread of a buzzing sound. Is there a way to fix that or are the models just defects? I am not sure if I can return this tv after purchase so I am just wondering.

How is this tv for gaming/movies? I will exclusively be using this tv for that. Displaylag.com has this tv has one of the lowest input lag plasma which is great. How does this TV stack up with the panasonic ones of the same year?

One last question. How would I go through calibrating this? I never calibrated anything in my life so this will be a first. Do I connect my laptop and use the lagom? or do I use the avs free one from this forum??? Which one would be better?

Thanks!
