The blacks in the night photos look terrible. I am sure it is most likely the photo technique. Why are you guys praising the black levels as they show in those pics?
And taking a pic of a black screen with no flash will be inaccurate if the shutter speed is not set manually. You can take a picture of an Elite and set a long shutter speed and have the blacks look horrible.
The OP needs assistance with setting up his camera for dark shots or he is wasting his appreciated time. Definitely set the flash to off and if you can, use a tripod or equiv. Then use your auto timer to shoot so you don’t have to press the shot button while the shot is actually being taken, causing movement blur. Then take a few different shots using different "exposure times". Even this is flawed, because you can set the timer too low and make Vizo blacks look like Elite blacks.
We appreciate your efforts and if you require assistance, just ask. There are plenty of people on this site to cover a full spectrum of technical issues and/or questions.
In the mean time, we can simply use your eyes. For example, When viewing black or dark scenes, Do you find the level of black to be extremely black and almost blend with the bezel or Good black in your mind but you can definitely see the contrast between the bezel and the screen?
Thanks again for the time

Just read that. Well put.

Just read this. Another good call. Use the pause icon to dial in the shot. Reduce aperture time just until the pause icon becomes sharp and loses the "glow". That should get you close.
