I hope you guys can help with some calibration settings. My TV is the LN40A750, with SQ01 panel. Very nice PQ, and I’m happy. Not so happy is my neighbor with a LN40A750, with the SS02 panel. Pretty dramatic difference with both TVs side by side, same latest 1012 firmware, and to compare both equally, and set a common baseline, we set them both up at the standard picture settings, and did a reset. His has a much more yellow look, the whites are tinted, and even old black and white movies have a yellow cast to them. Setting his to Cool2 color temp comes close to what mine is at the normal color temp, but I don’t like the blacks as much. This is very surprising to me, I could live with the factory settings on mine if I had too, but on his, I would not be happy either. Anyway, since I’m the one that suggested this set, I would like to give him the best settings for his SS02 panel. Oh, do the number of hours on the set affect the settings at all?
His does not seem as bright either, not sure what that might be, but we cranked his backlight up a couple of notches. Odd stuff to me
I think this is a case where if he had not seen mine side by side with his, he probably would have been happy. But, when comparing the two, it's obvious which looks better ( at these settings) . It does make me question if the panels after the SQ01 are not as good.
