I just got a ST60 and when I was watching the hockey I had it set to the Cinema picture mode, the ice had a red tint to and was a dull picture. I tried the Custom picture mode and the picture looked a lot better. Custom mode uses a Normal color temp.
With either picture mode I didn't make any color adjustments, just took what the settings came with the tv.

All of the tv calibration settings that I have seen have the color temp either warm or warm2. Why does panasonic call one of there color temp normal if nobody uses that one ?

Wow you left the settings at default and the pic looked good?

I said the hockey looked better in custom mode compared to cinema model. I just got the tv so I will wait before I start changing the settings.

Don't know the reason behind Panasonic's decision to name it 'Normal'. On almost all displays, the warm temps are closer to D65, which is the white point used in rec.709, the HD video standard. Many people are used to a blue tinted white so the warm settings look too warm. That's not to say that the warm settings aren't sometimes too warm because sometimes they are, but almost always they are closer to D65, which is why they're almost always used as a starting point for a calibration.

See VT60 thread.

Native (Wide) gamut versus 709. Which are you guys using and why?

There are no DNice settings for the S60 and probably wont be.

Do you know why? Would they be the same as the ST? Are there any settings for my TV from other members? Thanks

Time and money are the main reasons. D-Nice owns a ST60 so he's posted the settings from that set after he calibrated it. If he has the time and a dealer provides him with a set to calibrate then there will be settings for other models.

The S60 would not be the same as the S60. Check the owner's thread for the S60 for settings.

So I ran D-NICE's slides for 200 hours & am now going through the various settings found on-line for my Panasonic TCP60ST60.

Any1 found one they particularly like? doesn't matter what conditions.
Would appreciate a baseline.

For anyone to suggest personal settings, you should state which TV you have.

In that case, id suggest trying Dnice's ST60 post prep settings, since you followed his slides procedure. Probably the best settings you'll find online. You can find them on the first page of this thread.

I like D-Nice's settings biggrin.gif

You can also try CNET's settings in Cinema Mode, and Cadett has also posted his settings in the ST60 thread, so there's a couple other options to try out

I downloaded the slides today on an SD card, but I noticed that the slides do not run continuous for me. It goes through the 12 colors then it says it "cannot read" for 12 frames, then it goes back to the 12 color slides. It alternates every 12 between cannot read and the slides Is this correct or did it not download correctly for me? Any info is very much appreciated...

Posted before, but worth repeating:

Attention MAC users:

If you haven't noticed when you copy the slide show to a USB thumb drive or SD card your Mac divides each jpg into two files.

Here is an explanation of why this happens and (more importantly) a fix so you can prep your TV without half the slide show being "unreadable file" in the middle of your screen.

Why:

Those hidden files (hidden to the Mac user because they start with a period) are the resource fork information for each file. The Mac OS has to do it this way to prevent losing that information since it's impossible to save two data forks on a Windows/DOS formatted drive/card/etc. When you copy a file back to a Mac from such a drive, the two items are recombined as a standard Mac file.

The Fix:

Copy the files to your freshly erased (disk utility) USB or SD card

Right before you eject run Terminal (you can search for it if you are unfamiliar) and type in the following command:

dot_clean /Volumes/"card-volume-name"

put the name of your SD card the way it appears in Finder between the quotes (and keep the quotes) then hit enter. Eject the drive. Plug it into you Plasma and run the jpgs as a slide show in your media player. Voila!

Wish i had a dollar for every time I've read the slide error problem on here.

The above post should be a sticky!
post #1223 of 3315
Thank you mattestarr!!! It work perfectly. I guess in hindsight I should have gone through all the past post. Got the 65ST60 yesterday and it will be worth the wait!

Thanks again,

Matt

No problem. It was driving me nuts too.

I picked up a TC-P50x60 the other day for a great price. Before I start going crazy on it with video games and the like, I'd like to break it in to minimize IR/burn-in. Can I use the slides to achieve this, or should I do something else? Additionally, should I use the break-in settings for the s60 panels or do something completely different? I'm having a hell of a time finding anything for the x60 panels, in terms of settings and what not.

Just use the normal modes that appeal to you. Watch full screen material without high contrast fixed images for a few hundred hours. If you want to run the display when you're not watching it, then get a DVD or Blu-ray movie with a 1.78:1 (16x9) aspect ratio and put it on repeat. The Pixar movies are good for that kind of thing and you can watch them too.

After a while you can look into buying something like the Disney Wow disk to adjust your audio and video.

Hi there I have just bought a 50 GT60B in the UK.

I am a noob on the forum and this is also my very first plasma so want to make sure I do everything right.smile.gif

I will be watching TV in between the slide show so what pic settings would you recommend until the set is broken in? Would contrast of 70 be too high and sharpness around 50 etc


Can I use the slide show to break mine in? I know it does not mention GT60B, only ST, VT and ZT?

Welcome to the forum! Keep in mind, this is the US site. AVForum might yield better suggestions as the settings are different. With that said, yes you can run the slides to help age the panel. As for contrast, i had mine set at 60 the first few hundred hours. Sharpness, 50 is way to high! If....IF you want sharpness i wouldn't go higher than 20. Most set it at 0.

Hi

Thanks for the reply I just wanted peace of mind the slide show would be ok to use.

During the slideshow custom has sharpness at 50 so should I knock this down to 20 while doing the 100 hour slide show then?

Don't change any settings except for the ones D-Nice says to. Just follow the instructions in the first post..
