Hi,

I recently bought a Samsung PN60F5300, and I find the factory default settings give terrible colors. Does anyone have a calibration setting for it?

Thanks

My Samsung PNXXF5300 (Seperate Setting for Both 51inch and 60inch) Calibration Settings

Note: These calibrations were perfomed on the 2013 A Series. I'm unsure if they will work for the 2014 B Series


PN51F5300:
Notes: Because there were some significant shifts in greyscale and brightness when engaging Cinema Smooth, I calibrated two modes, Cinema for 24p Blu-Ray viewing, and Standard for everything else.

For 60 HZ inputs (Cable Box/Sat, Game Systems)

Will, what did you use for calibration? DVD or professional? I bought the same set recently and tried calibration with the Disney WOW DVD. I purchased it because of the many positive reviews but I was hoping for a little more from it to help with the advanced settings.

will7046 06-12-2013 09:45 AM

I'm not a professional, I self taught myself, but I have calibration meter (i1 Display Pro) and calibration software (Color HCFR) and use the AVS and other calibration discs found in the Display Calibration subforum for test patterns.

Disney WOW is great too, I also have this disc, it really is great for setting basic settings (Color, Contrast, Brightness, etc.)

Advanced settings (Gamma, White Balance, Color Management Systems) really can't be adjusted correctly without the benefit of a meter and software.

signmastr 06-12-2013 11:55 AM

Will, still plan on calibrating your "buddies" PN60F5300 in the near future?

I will be doing it this weekend. I will be traveling over the weekend, so I will post the settings early next week.

snoopdogg 06-15-2013 05:29 PM

Thanks for posting your settings Will smile.gif I'm liking how it looks and I'd like to see your charts you mentioned.

Glad your liking them.

Please see the new comments I made above. I will be posting an additional set of settings with cinema smooth turned off and my charts for both sets this week sometime.

I will also try to post the calibrated settings from the 60 inch 5300 I calibrated over the weekend. I calibrated this one with cinema smooth off (it was horribly inaccurate with it turned on). It also came out very good.

mattymaxima 06-16-2013 08:55 PM

I calibrated my PN60F5300 using the Spears & Munsil calibration disk here: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1477056/samsung-pn60f5300-calibration-settings-using-ps3. I used the 10p, white balance and custom color settings as used by will7046 and the color bars came out almost perfect. My cell light, contrast and brightness settings were different though as my reds and blues were clipping above 91 contrast (whites never clipped even with contrast turned all the way to max though). I tried adjusting the color down to prevent clipping which worked but then the color bars were way out of whack. Increasing the color to 51 and decreasing the contrast to 90 seemed to be perfect. I am using Cinema Smooth as well. Thanks

Sounds like you had great results, awesome.

I did see a bit of color clipping as well, but I made the trade off to get more light output from the set.

will7046 06-19-2013 06:07 AM

Please see post 2 in this thread for my updated settings for the 51 inch 5300, I also posted my 60 inch settings

karlpoe 06-19-2013 07:09 PM

Will, thanks for posting the 60"F5300 settings! I have the same set and they came out beautiful! Nice work! I'm planning on getting an i1 Pro soon and am interested to see if there are any differences with my panel. . but I have to say. . the set looks incredible with your posted settings!

signmastr 06-20-2013 08:26 AM

Thanks Will. I'll try these settings tonight...

signmastr 06-21-2013 08:53 AM

Looking great with your settings. Ever consider ISF certification? Thanks again...

will7046 06-21-2013 10:12 AM

Glad you are enjoying them.

It's basically a hobby at this point. I wanted to be be able to calibrate my own equipment, and I get new TV's every couple of years. It would have been very expensive to keep hiring a professional calibrator. Now I also help out my freinds and family when I can. This site is great for finding resources on learning how to calibrate yourself.

Maybe someday though, I always keep it in the back of my mind

karlpoe 06-21-2013 01:19 PM

Have you updated your firmware to 1017? I'm curious if the update changes any of the calibration settings..the description on the Samsung site says: "Improved picture quality over HDMI"

will7046 06-21-2013 01:38 PM

Thanks for the heads up on the new firmware. I have been pretty good about checking on this, but haven't looked in the past week.

I will update my 51 and check it out sometime this weekend. I won't be able to check on the 60 inch version.

I can't imagine it would change things all that much though. Maybe it will help with the ABL pops (Hockey Pop's as some have dubbed them here) that I see from time to time.

will7046 06-22-2013 10:16 AM

New firmware did not change any of my calibration settings. Not sure what it did honestly. Everything looks the same.

karlpoe 06-22-2013 10:23 AM

Thanks for checking! I didn't really notice a difference either...

snoopdogg 06-23-2013 06:34 PM

I was going through and modifying my settings based on Will's recent edit to his original posting. I have a PS3 connection which I use for netflix, vudu, blu ray, gaming, etc. It is connected using an HDMI cable. I was wondering if anyone knew why I do not have the 'film mode' option available under 'Standard' or 'Movie' when playing 60hz content from netflix or vudu in particular. It is grayed out and set to off. This is really bugging me.

Film mode will always be greyed out with a 60hz signal. It will be selectable with a 30 hz input (1080i or 480i) or a 24p input (Blu Ray can do this with the setting enabled on the player)

signmastr 06-24-2013 08:51 AM

Samsung support told me "firmware updates do not change calibration settings" that's a good thing.

larlev 08-08-2013 07:28 AM

Thanks for the settings that were posted. Works great. Are your 60" cable settings same as your 51"?

I cannot connect hdmi through my Time Warner cable dvr so I have component connected. Am I correct in that I have to set calibration for hdmi and component separately.

CarolineDavid 08-08-2013 09:01 AM

1) You can set the RGB Full Range Mode option to "LIMITED" on the PS3 and use "Normal" (grayed out) for watching movies and "Low" whilemyzV playing games or through a HTPC. This would also be the choice to use if NOT using the PS3 and its RGB Full Mode option.
2) You can set the RGB Full Range Mode option to "FULL" on the PS3 and leave the setting to "Normal" on the TV. This is the option I have chose so I do not have to ever switch the TV setting and instead let the PS3 control the proper spacing.

larlev 08-08-2013 01:17 PM

Thanks, I think I saw your other post. I set my ps3 as you did. I ordered the disney wow disc to calibrate for regular cable watching.

Coming from a Mitsubishi wd-62327 DLP.....this plasma is really really good. I'm taking dvr back to TWC and get it exchanged, hopefully it will fix issue. Component isnt really that bad however, still looks great.

BenDB 08-08-2013 11:26 PM

edit: I had a long question here, in regards to the CNet review. I decided it would be best in its own thread, so I moved it.

If you would like to coment, which I would appreciate, it is HERE.

larlev 08-09-2013 02:01 PM

Switched out dvrs...hdmi is working now. Much better actually, didnt think it would matter. Wills settings for blu-ray are spot on. Thanks again Will for taking the time to post. I feel like I owe you something.....I'm taking the easy way out instead of doing it myself.

I'm still working on settings for regular cable viewing. It's close, and is probably fine but I can't leave it alone. smile.gif
