What are your settings? My whites are brilliant on this PZ85 42" fed by a panasonic BD30 and now BD35 Blueray player via HDMI.
My player is set 100% all default. No special modes enabled. Just NORMAL. Only change to the Player is audio setting set to bitstream but that has nothing to do with video. Even left HDMI res to AUTO. 24P to disabled. Just the factory default settings.
TV is set thusly...WATCHING DVD OR BLUERAY...
Ditrect to TV via HDMI. Ain't nothing touching this signal before the TV gets it!
Mostly anyway. No reflections allowed!
And everyone shut up!
HDMI 1 = Cinema. Warm Temp as it is the default.
60 Picture (up to 80 seems to make little difference)
52 Brightness (up to 56 is fine. The default 58 gave me greyness in blacks)
41 Color (Toms setting and oddly Panasonics defaul setting out of the box for Cinema)
0 Tint (been going from -6 to -2 to 0 and back. Sticking with 0 for now)
50 Sharp (really does not matter from HDMI I find)WATCHING CRAPOLA DIGITAL (NON HD) SIGNAL OFF COAX...
TV = STANDARD (slightly higher gamma as we have the lights on)
Temp = NORMAL (Default of STANDARD mode)
50 to 55 Color or thereabouts
Sharp 75 (this was the default and I have left it there)
This mode works for TV as it makes it look like the old 27" CRT upstairs basically and when watching the TV, many of the lights are on in the room. Hard to full calibrate a crap source like TV from COAX as each channel likes slightly different settings so I gave up and made one "close enough" setting to mostly saticfy them all.
If you are still getting greyness with these kinds of settings. Hmmm... Wierd.
