Hi,

Today i took the plunge and bought a Samsung PN51F5300 (my first plasma), and I find the factory default settings give terrible colors. This TV is for my basement and used for sports / movies / PS3 games hooked up through my Yamaha receiver and surround sound. after a little research I was informed to turn off eco modes to get more true color tones. Does anyone have a calibration setting for this TV to get good picture quality?? any help will be appreciated.

Thanks,

Tony

Burn the AVS HD 709 disc and find the basic settings that best suit your particular viewing environment.

Adjusting settings according to personal preference is not calibration.

I calibrated for a darker room environment.

With this set you are very unlikely to get an accurate picture that is bright enough for a heavily lit room (and with the relectivitiy of the screen this is not a good set at all for that type of environment), but I have had no issues with my settings with moderate lighting.

Being a budget plasma, it simply cannot output enough light for certain viewing conditions and still keep the picture accurate, and accuracy is what I was going for with my calibration. My settings are plenty bright enough for a darker room.

As for the yellowish tint that you noticed (from your PM), I'd chalk that up to panel variance. Every TV is different. I cannot garrantee that my settings will look good for everyone, but I thought I would share them anyway.

Settings worked GREAT on my PN60F5300, in my semi-dark room. Thanks again Will. Some buzz on new firmware, available with auto download only...
