Just out of curiosity, I don't really understand what all there is to calibrate on this set other than greyscale [huge I know] and the very basics: picture, color, tint, sharpness and black level. Your cuts are at the defaults of this panel [80, 80, 80] so it was your gains he changed. By the way, where did he set your Sub-Brightness, Color, Tint, etc. in your service menu, if you don't mind me asking? Also, post calibration, are all your user menu settings now at 50, as is typical after a calibration? If not, where are they? Thanks for any info.
Believe me, I have learned what little I know from these forums and people like Doug, Tom, etc. I was unaware that the cuts are set at the defaults, or what was else was changed during calibration in the service menu. I can tell you my user settings post calibration:
Picture Mode: Custom
Color Temp: Normal
Black Level: Light
Size: 2 when possible
All other settings: Off
This is my first venture into Home Theater and Plasma panels, but I must reiterate how happy I am with the picture on my 46PZ85 both before, and especially after calibration. Sorry for the poor use of quotes from the threads. The company I used in San Diego, Coast Calibration, was very reasonable price wise, and the end results were certainly worth it.
