You are best off to get a calibration disk like AVS HD709, Spears & Munsil, Wow, etc and set the basics (brightness, contrast, sharpness, aspect, color, etc) yourself, or hire a professional calibrator. Sharing settings may be a way to get started to learn what does what but every tv is different and so is your viewing environment so using someone else's settings is not the best way to go.

Thx for trying to help. Which calibration disc that you've shown me do you think is the best?

The 'Disney World Of Wonder' Blu-ray Disc is the best program for beginners.

Since you were the first to suggest the 'WOW' disc, shouldn't you to respond ahead of me? Besides, abbigabbi's statement is so vague there's nothing to respond to or advise about. Saying, "a little confused," doesn't provide much to work with.

I don't understand how to properly gauge while doing the (advanced contrast test) as to where to set (ideal white) to, my contrast on my LG 47 LM4600 is peaking at about 97 right now as is, I've set ideal white so that (the visible white area) is all that can be seen, ideal whit barely seen, that right? Also the SHARPNESS! What a challenge for me with the (Advanced Sharpness) test... I have no idea even with the test what would be considered proper calibration, it mentions that halo effects and such artifacts are not optimal, when u can see them you are supposed to know to back it down, problem is when the contest is all the way up (100%) it doesn't show any halo... I don't know how else to judge... I hope this is enough detail to help with guys, i really do, i want this thing to look great... Thanks for your time.

WoW was one of three disks I suggested. Personally, I've only used the AVS HD709 disk so I have no first hand experience with the disk and yes, "a little confused" is vague. Besides, you have much more experience in calibrating than I do so your depth of knowledge on all matters calibrating is better than mine.

I am not experienced with your make and model of TV. Every display type may behave a bit differently from the ideal or from others. Picture adjustment ranges will vary from one display type or model to the next. Test patterns are for general use and some discs offer differing versions of a specific type of test pattern.

Some general guides for avoiding too high contrast are:
1. Avoid producing coloration in the white- usually the white will go slightly pink (magenta).
2. Avoid blanking out white steps above 100% as much as possible.
3. Avoid producing obvious eye strain from too bright of an image in your viewing environment lighting conditions.
Here's a link to a decent tutorial on setting contrast: http://www.tlvexp.ca/tutorials/3-contrast/ .

The sharpness pattern on the 'WOW' program is reportedly very sensitive to slight adjustments.
Here's a link to a decent tutorial on setting sharpness: http://www.tlvexp.ca/tutorials/part1/ .

You may get some assistance from fellow owners of your make and model of LCD. They may be more familiar with unique quirks about the behavior of your set. You can start a thread there or do a search within that section.

I just picked up this TV and used the "in settings" calibration. Came out looking great. I gotta dig out my real calibration disc eventually though. My one big problem is that, the calibrated settings don't apply to 3d.

How do you calibrate the 3d setting? The menu is not available.

Wound up calibrating in 2D mode and manually tweaking, it's a pretty terrible experience though frown.gif

It seems like it makes some adjustments to 3D automatically when you switch to a 3D mode. I think brightness and sharpness.
