There's a very noticeable (in a silent room) hum, but only on certain slides. Red, Green, Blue are all pretty quiet. The grayscales seem to make the hum louder as they get darker. I've seen a few posts in this thread about fan noise, but this doesn't seem to be that.

Plasma buzzing ?

All plasmas buzz to a degree... some people don't hear it, and varies from panel to panel. It shouldn't be loud enough to be annoying. And yes it's normal that it's louder on brighter screens.

Good info, thanks.

OK, me again regarding the color on my plasma.

To recap, I ran the slides for 100 hrs and did the settings. I've adjusted the Gamma to 2.0 and Warm 2 but the colors just don't "snap". Everything is crystal clear but watching the Cardinals and Basketball games, the red on the STL jerseys and Heat jerseys just don't seem that bright. Is this normal? Everything is clear and picture is awesome, just not getting the "bright" reds, yellows, etc. I had an old Panny Plasma that just seemed brighter with a worse picture though (blacks).

Am i just paranoid and this is actually how a better TV should look?
post #1145 of 3304
Why 2.0 for gamma ? That will make colors unsaturated
post #1146 of 3304
I asked about the brightness earlier and was told to turn the gamma down...actually been going back and forth from 2.2 and 2.0.
post #1147 of 3304
2.4 is probably ideal closest to 2.2 did you set your brightness(black level) with a pattern

Contrast controls panel light output
post #1148 of 3304
I'm not sure what option that is? (pattern)
post #1149 of 3304
Do you have a calibration disc ? Contrast brightness color and tint can be set with one

A free one available here is avs709 or Disney wow is popular but costs about 25 dollars

What model do you have ?
post #1150 of 3304
55 incher...ok thanks.
post #1151 of 3304
No I meant st60 s60 ?
post #1152 of 3304
Opps...ST60.

Found some other settings that seem to bring out the reds a little more. Still a little dark.

I've tried Cadett settings and don't like them. Maybe I miss something, but they are very greenish and bland. Not close at all to being watchable. Any idea why ?
post #1157 of 3304
Will it negatively affect my tv if i run the slides for more than 100 hours.... Say 150? Thanks

Assuming you entered everything correctly, and the colorspace of your source matches the TV, it could be one or more of the following:

1. Your TV could benefit from a proper calibration, which is all but certain. What's uncertain is how far off it is.
2. Your idea of a watchable picture doesn't conform to the display standard used in calibration. This is likely if you've always used TV presets, which typically use a cooler color temperature and in general aren't very accurate at all.
3. Your source material is greenish and bland, and it only looked acceptable before because the set was uncalibrated.

To be clear, your set still is uncalibrated, and it's not uncommon to trade one set of errors for another when you plug in someone else's settings.

Why? Because you don't have Cadetts panel. Each panel is different and using someone elses settings is hit or miss, at best. This is why a pro calibration is optimal.

No

I'm using cadett's settings to watch Game 7 of the NBA Finals tonight and I think it looks very good. Better than any of the presets for sure. Thanks to cadett for posting.
post #1164 of 3304
No problem.
