When watching the AVS brightness/contrast pattern on the PS3 do you see all the bars?
Been awhile since I have owned a PS3. It is great because it has so many different options, but also can be a pain for that same reason.
There should be an option to output YCbCr which "should" force 16-235. But I have also read that is only for Video/Blu-ray play back and all games on the PS3 are forced to 0-255.
Also for some reason I remember you actually need to have Super White turned on to display WTW and BTB. But again I could be wrong. I am sure some quick searching on here would result in a proper answer.
ALMOST sounds like you may be getting brightness and contrast confused (i.e. saying you don't bright images). Remember brightness is black level (first pattern in the AVS Basic Settings), and contrast is white level (3rd pattern). And don't forget about the 2nd pattern either
It is the Dynamic Brightness/Contrast pattern.
