I recently calibrated my 46A550 S panel(Firmware 1008.1). I dont have any equipment, but dont let that stop you from trying my settings/method of calibration. Here is the thing, the main problem is the colors. They are highly inaccurate. I adjusted them using a pattern I found using google image search ,and now they look highly accurate, and make the image pop. Here is what I did.
I downloaded this image of a greyscale(http://cinetal.com/Download%20Librar...eyscale_12.png
I put the image on my Ps3, and my macbook which is calibrated to D65. Then I adjusted the white balance till they looked similar. Not much adjustment should be needed. I start on Warm 1 because I found it looks more similar using that color tempurature. Note the color of white on your monitor, it will be redish/yellowish. Thats better than it being blue. Try to make them similar as you can. It may take more than one try. Also keep your backlight at 3 while adjusting.
I downloaded this image(http://www.w6rz.net/barsxv.png
) It is a colorbar that has three shades of each of the primary colors and secondary main colors. (50%/75%/100% saturation I think?)
I put the image on my Ps3, and my macbook which is calibrated to D65. Then I adjusted the colors in custom mode till they looked like the colors on my macbook. I dont know if its accurate, but it sure looks great, and better waay than it did. Start with your color at 46. If they look dull put it up to 49. Watch the color blue of the color bar. Notice how 100%/75% blend in if you raise your color saturation too high. I ended up with it at 49. 50 would make it blend.
If you dont have a macbook try using your regular pc.

Here is an example of what happens the color saturation is too high. Look at blue. Red does the same if you put it even higher!
Here are the settings I came up with.
Temp: Warm 1
Backlight: 3 - 4 at night, 5 - 7 during day.
Sharpness: 2 - 10
Gamma +1 (If you have a Ps3, you can go to http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/
images to find out your gamma/brightness/contrast. If you dont just try using gamma 0)
White Balance: Default.. -----> Advanced! I went into the service and calibrated in HDMI Calibration using the checkboard pattern and setting my Ps3 at 720p. Do not go into the service menu unless you know what you are doing! or try doing it by eye.. the way I mentioned above.
