For those interested:

By the way, do the best calibrations make use of both White Balance and Color Management System settings? Seems to be an either/or proposition; I haven't seen a calibration listed that used both.


Thanks,

Cnet, and their settings are more refined. Flatpanel was mentioned earlier in the thread.

Yes, too high, it's almost like they used settings from previous LG TV's that went 0 to 100, which would translate to 25 in this TV.

Seems tedious.

If it was a push of a button there would be no need for professional calibrators!

Has anyone had luck getting a TV with 0 flashlight bleed through? Mine is nearly perfect but has a 3-5 inch flashlight on the bottom right. Is it work attempting a replacement?
post #3455 of 3922

Yes, I tend to 'season to taste' on backlight, contrast, brightness, sharpness--depending on the source--and they went for overkill on the latter. I'm focused on getting the color balance right, and--so far--the results from flatpanelshd are very natural looking. Simpler than CNET's--flatpanelshd only utilized the white balance adjustment--but I do like the results better.

Ah, thanks. I still have CNET's calibration in one of my ISF modes, so I'll do some more direct comparison. My initial judgment was that CNET skewed a little too warm/pink.

You're in luck--I have mine in a little bag.

The threaded part is about 3/4" long. There are about 19 turns of the threads per 1/2". The outside diameter of the threads is just a hair over 1/8". The head is 1/4" in diameter and there's a lock washer on each. You'll need eight screws.

I talked with some tech which I doubt he was incorrect and says you really can't calibrate a led screen it is mostly for projection tvs:eek:

I am still loving my isf pro calibrated set. Very worth it what i paid to kevin miller, one of the best calibrator in the planet.

If anyone is tormented about spending too much money on this thing, there's a used 55" 7600 for $1044.08 (Amazon warehouse / prime) and another for $1022 that purportedly only have a minor imperfection on their stands. (And missing screws and manual). Whatever. 30 day return policy.

You can only get a 1 year square trade though......so you have to be the "used is ok" type.

I'm not.

I just had my panel for my 55 7600 replaced by geek squad. The techs name was John who worked for Samsung for a number of years and did a great job. The bleeding looks to be non existent. Will follow up in a few weeks to give the panel sometime. It was quit the experience to see the work done. Yes, I was nervous as hell. I have photos of the service too. Will try to post.smile.gif

Turn auto-dimming off, boost the backlight, and show a black screen in a dark room, with and without a small bright object drawn on it (in case the TV knows to turn off all lights on full-on black screens). It's a tough test for any TV, but if you have it, it'll be there.

Ideally when I get off my ass and make it, I'll have a bleed tester that draws a bright bar through the middle of the screen stretching left to right with the rest black, followed by a bright bar going vertically. Each bar will move. Then I'll move a small bright box around.

Far easier than all of that though is the critical "real life" test that bothers folks: watching of a letter-boxed movie. Typically they are 21:9 and squashed vertically to fit the 16:9 screen. This give you the black bars on the top with the top and bottom lights required to be on.

I have trouble visualizing where bleed issues originate, so I'm looking forward to the pics. Is it always the panel itself that goes bad...or can these issues sometimes be remedied by re-seating the panel in the case, sealing any source of LED light bleed, etc.?

They are actually M4 screws if you need to be more exact here is a installation guide from the digital operators manual for reference (If you haven't already bought some screws.)

if you are adding/looking for 3d glasses maybe you guys can grab one of these for $2 http://www.bestbuy.com/site/LG+-+Cinema+3D+Glasses/6500421.p?id=1218747897781&skuId=6500421&strId=478&strClr=true

Interesting. Doesn't look like they engage with the "inner workings" at all... Sort of a cartridge system, then? Slide out the old, pop in the new? It'd be interesting to see a panel module cracked open to get a look at just what causes back-light issues, how they might engineer a solution for these widespread problems. Thanks for the pics!
