Sorry, you got me, I was in the wrong area. I did mean to ask that about the A750 just not in this forum.

Again sorry.

I shouldn't complain about a little life in this dying thread

I am getting the bezel and panel replaced for the third time. Purple hue and Severe clouding. My question is do they also replace the main board and what, if any service menu adjustments, can I ask the Samsung guy to calibrate for me? The last two times, I was not there and the wifey-poo is oblivious and the tech did not leave any paperwork. Thank you for your help in advance

You can always ask ...

Does anyone know where I can find firmware update for the Samsung LN46A860 ?

Samsung website does not have it.
post #1388 of 1433
You could call Samsung support directly and have them email it to you.

The service guy will not do any calibrations. You had the panel and the bezel replaced 3 times, I would ask them to replace the TV if the third service call don't help, if they agree it will be replaced with a b750, if you need a number to executive customer service PM me.

Hi all I have a ? I read the first six pages yesterday and today I skipped to the end on this thread to catch up a little guess I missed the middle so for one what is the service menu is that diffrent from just going into the regular menu. If I put your settings in using my remote will they stay there or vanish if I turn my tv off? sorry a little lost lol I just want the best pic I can Thank you for any help.....

Hey guys been awhile since I've been in this thread!! Damn new tv s comin in and puttin us on the back burner.

Ok I believe my FW is 1012,2 I have an sq01 panel and I am just not happy with my settings. I don't know what happened. But when I was at best buy all there similar LCD s looked so crisp and even there demo tvs the had setup for games looked good and crisp.

I know a few ppl have great calibration settings on here but if anyone knows of a couple , please throw a page # out. I'm on my cell, computers down

so ... My issues

not a crisp color

mild saturation

halo/ flashlighting

distant images too dark

close inages to bright

Just overall something is setup wrong and cannot figure out what it is.


So thanks guys ,.... Again
post #1395 of 1433
^ I have flashlighting and read somewhere about loosening the screws on the back. I tried it on the 2 on the top in the corners and it worked. I only backed the screws off about half a turn. I still have flashlights but it is not as bad.

The grayscale was already as good as it can get, so that was pretty much unchanged. The same goes for the contrast ratio.

I was able to get better color accuracy in the end. Previously I had good dE values for the colors, but the x/y values were further off than what I wanted. I found that by raising the general color setting even more and then compensating by lowering the intensity of each color in the color space menu, I was able to get better accuracy in the x/y values. Which in turn gave me even better dE values. Green though is still a color that's simply under saturated, there's nothing you can do about it. None the less, it's still pretty close to being where it needs to be. And if you look at the file, you can see that every other color if pretty much perfect.

I'm very happy with everything now. So I think this was my last calibration for a while. Special thanks to ra004e for letting me borrow his eye-one sensor so I can do the calibrations and post the results, it's very much appreciated.

For those who want the white balance settings for the user menu. They really haven't changed much at all from my previous Warm-1 settings. So you'll be fine using the previous White Balance settings I posted combined with the rest of these settings I have now. I'll post them together below so you won't have to keep searching for them.

The ColorHFCR file is attached

Here they are:

FW:1007

Movie Mode: Warm-1

Contrast Ratio: 3,110:1

White Balance
If adjusting through User Menu
Offset
R: 28
G: 25
B: 21

B: 29

If adjusting through Service Menu - "WB Movie" Settings
R_Gain = 52
B_Gain = -89
R_Offset = 0
B_Offset = 8
Gamma = M2

(SM-WB Movie/User Menu) Picture Settings
Backlight = 3
Contrast = 100
Brightness = 43
Color = 50
Sharpness = 10
Tint = 50/50
Gamma = 0 , If you already adjusted Gamma through the Service Menu (Expert Settings)
Gamma = -1, If adjusting Gamma through User Menu only

Color Space
Red
R = 30
G = 0
B = 1
Green
R = 26
G = 46
B = 0
Blue
R = 9
G = 0
B = 41
Cyan
R = 30
G = 47
B = 56
Magenta
R = 38
G = 0
B = 58
Yellow
R = 60
G = 48
B = 0



I am using these on my 52a750 with just a few minor tweaks ( bumped the gamma up from 0 to +1, and turned the red gain down a few notches ) , But i have a 1012.2 FW ( i believe ) And these are excellent...


Whats exactly does the different firmware do?? his was 1007 , and mine was 1012.2


also how can i check my FW? Just to make sure

I've also attached a text file of the service menu walkthrough Zerog6 created from a message interchange with KJGarrison. I must warn you to be careful when going into the service menu. I take no responsibility in any screw ups that may happen. It's also prudent to jot down the original settings before making changes, so that you can revert back when needed.

If anyone checks this, please let me know if you have found any new settings, i dont know but i cant seem to get the picture right... on these calibrations for the movie setting , when its a bit dark in the movie, its almosthard to see anything.. then my standard setting is a brightened up version of these past 2 calibrated ones, its much brighter and you can see more detail , but the faces get a bit to white... man this is a long process... 9 months now and still looking for calibrations
post #1398 of 1433
Has anyone got any got calibration settings for their ps3/360, I've got a LA40A750 and new to all this calibration stuff so I'm hoping someone can post their settings or point me in the right direction to find some. Thanks.
post #1399 of 1433
In case anyone wants to try this out I think I might have found a little "trick" in the SM on the A750. By using the high amp setting in the SM FRCM setting and turning it completely down (off) you can enable blur reduction without dejudder!

All you need to do is go into the FRCM menu in the SM and set all high settings to "32". Once done select the High amp setting in the regular menu.

I haven't tested this much yet but it does seem to be helping with motion and no dejudder! Something to try for you guys who are getting bored.
post #1400 of 1433
More service menu findings, if anyone hates the drab look of PC mode try this out.

Enable WB/Movie settings in the SM for the PC mode like you would if you were doing zerog's settings. Use the user controls in this menu for PC mode, voila, color/tint in PC mode. Settings will stick, 58 setting in PC mode seems to = 50 in Movie mode.
post #1401 of 1433
Thanks Patrick. I actually see less judder with my A750 vs. my A650. I watched tons of baseball and barely any triple-ball-effect either. But I'm saving this one just in case.
post #1402 of 1433
Hey guys, had the LN52A750 since late December of 2008 but never really did anything with calibration. Never did anything with firmware either. But looking at this post...:

... I may not have to? I'll go into Menu -> Setup -> SW Upgrade later and check. I'm wondering about what firmware I have so I can have the same calibration settings as the people on this thread who have the best ones. But this has got me scared:

I tend to watch most things in Dynamic mode (just like the vivid colors better) sometimes in standard. If I try these calibration settings do you thing it will fix my problems? Is it possible the firmware screwed someting up?

After I upgraded mine my picture quality just sux. Lots of artifacts, grainy, colors don't seamlessly radiate they fade in steps. Some shows I have vertical lines going through the blacks.
I have gone into the Expert settings and adjusted those settings which help in movie mode, but in standard and dynamic it hasn't helped at all.Please let me know if you have or not got your issues fixed. I am contimplating calling Samsing and going that route.

I bought my TV same time as you (from Amazon) and am now a little scared to do the firmware upgrade.

Lastly, so I have something to start on:

Finally last Saturday (almost a year after ownership of my LN52A750) I updated the firmware to the latest and messed with the calibration settings while watching a recorded smallville off my FIOS HD box (connected via HDMI). I didn't know where to start so I worked my way backwards from the newest post and saw what mj79 was trying out:

I now have the latest firmware too. The one thing couldn't figure out how to do were:

post #1406 of 1433
There's no need for the service menu to use Zerogs settings for white balance. In the detailed menu settings just click white balance and use the numbers he gives you for that menu and ignore the Service menu WB Movie settings.

However there have been reported differences in grayscale between firmware versions so the Service menu may be the most accurate (?) way to set it. Service menu is nothing special but remember it voids your warranty and a log is kept so they will know you have been there unless you delete it.By hitting mute 184 and then you can get into the SM. There should be a menu called WB Movie, go into this, turn it on, make sure movie mode is selected and the proper color temperature (Warm 2). Then enter your numbers.

BTW I'm using his settings (no modifications) latest firmware, looks great. I'm personally not a fan of mixing settings especially when the changes were done by eye.
post #1407 of 1433
^^ Thanks Patrick. So you're using zerog6's settings which don't require a trip to the service menu? the same ones I'm almost using? that's good to know. One day I'll go hard w/ my calibrations but for now, I'd like to just do something good enough.

Well i used zerogs final calibration PLUS mixed in Jwortizs' because he was using the 1012.2 FW like i had and ALSO had an SQ01 panel, which is what i have also..


so basically i downloaded a ultra hi res pic ( of transformers 2 ), put in the blu ray , paused it on that exact frame, and changed a thing here and there to try and match it a little better.. Not a professional way to do it , but it DID actually come out a little better ...

this calibration thing is frustrating


Im STILL trying to get my screen a little brighter while keeping the fleshtones the same and not having the color wash out , and to keep it colorful and crisp... almost makes me want to pay for a calibration , so i kNOW when im watching a blu, im getting the best PQ possible as far as flesh tones, lighting and detail

Is this a fact? I have semi minor clouds in the top corners of my 52A750 that still irritate/distract me when watching letter boxed images. Do you think the odds of me getting good results are good? Which screws exactly, as I can't picture them from work ; )

I'm praying this works because it's my only real complaint. Sometimes I wonder "what if?" about moving to a 52B750... sigh.

it worked for me.. its not 100% but it does take alot of the bright white down in the corners... you cant miss the screws .. there are a few in the corner on the back panel.. i loosened mine about 1/4 turn
