I created this document to help keep track of the settings on my Samsung when I'm calibrating it so I thought I'd put this on here in case anyone will find it helpful. Nothing terribly fancy but I find it useful.

Am I the only person using Black Tone? Sure it crushes the blacks (occasionally) , but only during scenes where the background is reallly bright and the subjects clothing is dark black.

Without it on, the blacks are too grey to my eyes. Also the contrast "pop" you get from using it is just amazing.

I'm using these settings for a dark viewing environment.

settings are:

Mode - Movie
Blacklight - 3
Contrast - 89
Brightness - 45
Sharpness - 20
Color - 49
Tint - G50/R50
Dynamic Contrast - Off

Advanced settings submenu
Black tone: Darkest
Dynamic contrast: Off
Gamma: 0
Color space: Auto
Flesh tone: 0
Edge enhancement: Off
xvYCC: Off

Picture options submenu
Color tone: Warm2
Size: Screen Fit
Digital NR: Off
HDMI black level: Normal
Film mode: Off
Blue only mode: Off
Auto motion plus 120Hz: Custom
Custom settings:
Blur reduction: 10
Judder reduction: 2

These settings give great neutral colors in a dark environment, makes me feel like I'm at the movies. I haven't been able to get a proper Daylight setting, but I'm working on it. Overall I found the Cnet settings pretty good, but I scrapped their White Balance, Gamma, Sharpness, and Black Tone settings for my own. The rest is great!

I've tried good amount of different settings on my TV (UN46B6000). I can watch movies fine on TV and on blu-ray but then I also get movies that its not a smooth picture. I tried moving around the judder/blur but that doesn't help either.

Has anyone else come a crossed this problem or has any idea's what I can try?

I have the UN55B6000. Ive noticed most people in here have their pictures set to Movie. Why is this? Do you guys watch regular tv on this setting as well? Do you watch tv during the day with these settings?

And one more question, are the TweakTV settings useful only in dark rooms/at night? It seems that a lot of the posted settings dont let the colors "pop" out as much as I'd like.

I just bought a UN55B7100 two weeks ago. I'm no expert, but I have tweaked some things. The Movie mode gives you access to every setting. The Standard mode gives you access to almost every setting, and is what I am using. The other two modes gray out the Advanced settings which is why people don't use those modes. The Movie mode lets you set the Color Tone to the Warm settings, but that looks too yellow to me, so I leave it Normal. My TV is in a pretty dark room, so my settings are tweaked for viewing in the dark. I used the AVS HD disk to adjust my settings, and the only setting I copied from the ones posted here, is the contrast setting (77), because I've never been able to adjust contrast by just looking at it. I also turn off most every setting that has an off selection, except the AutoMotion which is set to custom (but I'm not convinced that shouldn't be off as well). My sharpness is set to 0 and the TV looks great. The only thing I changed in the white balance section was that I noticed that there were greens in my blacks (shadows had a green tint to them). So I bumped the green offset down from 25 to 23.

Hi,

Following on from the difficult to understand HDtvtest post (for me anyway), here's how I defeated the auto-dimming; hopefully this is clear and easy to follow.

Put the tv in standby mode, then press on the remote: INFO then MENU then MUTE and then POWER to put the TV on again. The TV will now start up and the service menu will apear on the left.

Scroll down to Advanced then press the numerals 0000 on the remote.
You will see a box with CE DIMMING in the second or third column along (there are lots of boxes), scroll (you cannot jump to it) to it then click ENTER (on the remote).
Then click on Standard or Movie then go left or right to select on or off.

Then power off the tv. When you start it up again, the picture settings will revert to default, so you'll need to record your settings before attempting this.

And there you have it, no auto-dimming. Beware messing around in the service menu though; unless you know what you're doing just jump in and out following the instructions above.

Hope that helps.

Can anyone tell me if this is different than the dynamic contrast? I was under the impression that when the dynamic is turned to 'off', the screen wouldn't auto-dim. The auto-dim really seems to make things really difficult to see when watching darker videos(could easily be my backlight is set too high).

I have no problem turning this off via the advanced setup menu if that is what I need to do. I'll be playing with my calibration tonight trying settings users have posted here to see if those help my black issue.

I wouldn't mind the auto-dim so much if I could make out what was going on in dark scenes.

I have the UN55B6000. A technician installed firmware 001014 on my tv and it did not allow me to turn Auto Dimming/CE Dimming off. So I installed firmware 001012 and now AD turns off in Movie mode but not Standard (I like using Standard and changing the values to my preferences). So I figured that would be fine. I inputed my preferences in Movie mode, but the picture doesnt look the same as it did in Standard. Is there something else I need to change in Movie mode that was hidden in Standard?
post #162 of 180
Does anyone have firmware 001013 or 001014 I can get from them for the UN55B6000?
post #163 of 180
Had my Samsung UN55B7000 55" LCD/LED ISF calibrated a week ago and so far my impressions are that it's definitely not as "crisp" as before. I understand that it takes some getting used to, but to me it seems to have a yellow hue, and picture appears pale. The setting used is the "Warm 2" whereas I used mostly the "Natural" setting. When watching the Blackhawks/Flyers game the ice surface had a "yellow" tint.
When the technician did the set up he created a "Cal-Day" and a Cal-night" , so I now have these two in addition to the other settings (standard, movie, natural etc) that I had before.
I'd be interested in hearing what other owners had to say about their experiences and how their calibrated PQ compares to pre-calibration. Thanks !
post #164 of 180
Do you know how he got the cal day and cal night settings to unlock??? I've been searching for this for ages and can't find the process anywhere. Please help.

Not sure exactly how he set up these two new "profiles". I believe he had to go to the service menu,. I can't make any changes to these two settings. The tech does all the ISF calibrations for the Futureshop stores in the Montreal area.

Anyone have suggestions on the audio settings for UN55B6000. Currently i have my sound on "Standard" with the "Surround Sound" ON and "AUTO ADJUST" OFF.

Anyone have thoughts on what I should do for sound?

Also, I just updated my firmware to 1014. Is this the latest version? It was emailed to me from Samsung Tech Support.

THANKS FOR YOUR HELP!

May i know in the Service menu~

What is ur TYPE for 46B7000??
post #168 of 180
I'm new in here and not sure where this should go, thread wise but I am hoping someone could help me with my issue. My brother bought the 2009 LED 55" TV, model #UN55B6000. TV is, phenomenal. So I told him why not get the Samsung LinkStick Model #WIS09ABGN that way he can stream his digital movies from his PC to his TV without hooking his laptop up every time. TV picks up the wireless signal perfectly fine, he was even using a few apps that were already preloaded. So connection to the net is good. I installed Samsung's PC Share Manager on his Vista computer, shared the movie folder but the program does not see the TV. I've tried everything I could think of including shutting down all firewalls and still nothing. I took the LinkStick home and used it on Samsung 50" Plasma and it worked in a matter of 2 minutes. Ive tried this on an XP computer as well and still nothing.

PLEASE GIVE ME SOME ADVICE!!! I've spent over 2 hours on this and its not even my TV!! But I am determined to get this working.

I know this question is old, but the setting "N/D ADJ" in the Service Menu is what activates the Night/Day modes. You can activate it by turning that setting to ON, and then the modes setting below it (assuming your menu shows it) to All Modes (it should default to Current).

As usual, the caveat "you brick it, you broke it" applies. YMMV

At least you guys have the CE DIMMING setting you can use to kill your LED backlight auto-dimming crapola. Us 2010 model users have no such function in the service menus. It's gone. We're stuck with that POS LED shutoff when dark scenes pop up. Grrr.....

OK, so Ive had my 7100 for over a year now and just getting around to calibrating it. This is the first time Ive messed with calibrating a TV with blu-ray. I am using the AVS HD 709 download. I did everything like the video guys said but now my HD DirecTV doesn't look as good as factory defaults. Any ideas? I thought it would look better. Mainly the problem is people look kind of grainy(?) if that is the correct term.

So I finally had a chance to calibrate my UN55B7000 Samsung TV...

Going to try these settings out on my UN46B7000 for a few days. A little about the TV and area:
- Running latest software 1018
- usually well lit room with lights on around. We rarely turn the lights out and watch a movie or anything

Hello all,

I am just curious as to find out that if there was a Series 7 LED TV that was 240hz without it being a 3D TV? Someone told me they had a non 3D 240 hz Series 7 television? Just want to get the facts right.

Cheers

The image on this TV went double!! I have done the following:
1. Disconnect ALL inputs
2. Updated to the latest firmware
3. Reset all of the factory settings
4. Checked, cleaned and secured all wiring connections
5. Replaced the T-CON board and for about 20 seconds after turning the TV on "cold," the image is PERFECT and then gets progressively double (before T-CON replacement, image was always double).

Has anyone seen this? Any solutions?

If you have cable or satellite make a call to the provider to come out and check your receiver, etc.

BTW, what Samsung model is that?

Good luck.

We have a Samsung UN55B6000. Unfortunately, it is out of the manufacturer's warranty, the set is almost 2 years old! Our 10 year old Panasonic widescreen is running perfect with NO REPAIRS ever.. I can't see why new TVs shouldn't last just as long!!

Also, ALL of the inputs are disconnected (cable, Wii, DVD, etc.).

Thanks for the help, hope someone reads this that may know how to troubleshoot the problem (or seen this before and know what's wrong!).

I have a Samsung UN46F6350AF and used the recommended calibration settings for the 7000 series (it was stated the panel for the 6000 series is the same so the settings should be the same), but the picture is way worse than the standard, dynamic, or natural settings. Does anyone know the ideal calibration settings for the 6350?
