Official LG XXPZ950 Owners Thread - Page 38

post #1111 of 1116
Hey I had a few questions on this tv regarding a calibration. of the pz950

When I have my meter hooked up to the screen and using a Windowed grayscale design I seem to get two different readings.


The first reading comes when I am inside the calibration menu when it is on the screen on the lower half

The second reading is when I am outside of the calibration menu and have nothing on the screen but the grayscale picture



The issue I am having is due to fact that with the remote it is such a pain to go into the calibration menu, it is like a 4 step process to get into the grayscale settings


So I have a few questions

1 - Am I accessing the grayscale menu incorrectly or is there a shorter method? (I hit Menu, Setup, Video, ISF then expert control ?

2 - How did many of you who accurately calibrated your TV change your meter results ?

Lastly

3 - Beside 8741 is there another service menu code I can use to get the most accurate readings and make adjustments while taking constant readings with my calibration meter?

So I guess ALL of the plethora of owners of these sets just vanished.... eek.gif

Fortunately I managed to get LG to replace the panel under warranty. smile.gif

This is probably completely unrelated however I feel the need to share.

This problem occurred only with my Direct Genie DVR. However roughly 50% of the time, when I switched off the DirecTV input to something else (Apple TV, PS3, WD My Cloud) and watched any amount of content and then switched back to the DirecTV DVR, the entire feed was magenta, black and white. I had the box replaced twice and the problem still to this day occurs. It's the only source that has the issue but I'm befuddled by it. It occurs less often today but nonetheless, the problem still occurs eek.gif

[ Side note: The 2nd time I called DirecTV regarding the issue they paired me with a "Technical Support Associate" and the associate insisted my problem was a direct result in me needing to calibrate my display smile.gif I laughed and said no, that's not the problem, the entire display is magenta and she insisted that my display's color setting were inaccurate and needed to be calibrated. wink.gif ]

^^^ Very interesting yet troubling.

I can say unequivocally, that I have/had tested all inputs I use including: Blu-Ray, USB/portable drive, Xbox and of course DirecTV. They all exhibit the issue.

Oh and thanks for responding! smile.gif

Hello. I just received a brand new panel for my: 60PZ950 from LG under Warranty (woohoo!!!) Can anyone provide 'optimum picture settings' for me to use? I understand a "professional calibration" is best but that not in my budget.

this 2011 tv does anyone have the access to the service menu? I have tried multiple methods but none seem to work?
