I just purchased the Panasonic TC-P55VT60 and I'm very pleased with the picture when the subject is in daylight, such as a football game or daytime scenes. Once the scene shifts to night I basically lose 90% of the picture. One recent episode of NCIS was all but unwatchable because it was so dark. Virtually anything from Netflix is unwatchable also,
I mostly use the THX cinema setting and I've cranked up both the brightness ans the contrast to max and all that does is ruin the otherwise good daytime shots. I've also gone through the custom setting given here: http://reviews.*******************.com/panasonic-plasma-tv/panasonic-vt60-picture-settings.html which don't seem to be as good as the THX Cinema settings to begin with.
Do I have an "out-of-the-box" problem that I need to have serviced or am I just stuck with a TV that only shows daylight scenes?
Any help you can give me would be appreciated. Thanks.
1. Set the "Black Level" to "Light"?
2. Changed gamma levels? 2.4 seems to be the go to setting for most calibrations...I'm thinking of working with 2.2 as my DishNetwork feed is a little dark as well.
3. Changed "Panel Brightness"? "Mid", again, seems to be the go to...maybe changing to "High" will help?
Use the free disc at http://www.avsforum.com/t/948496/avs-hd-709-blu-ray-mp4-calibration to set brightness and contrast. Adjust the model-specific settings e.g. Panel Brightness according to what everybody else here uses (PB on Mid and I believe Gamma on 2.4).
Adjusting settings according to personal preference is not calibration.

yes,i think so,Still using 2.4 for Gamma, Standard color gamut for HDMI settings, and panel brightness "Mid". Contrast level at 56 is working for me as well, and the Dish feed is no longer as dim as when I initially entered the settings.
