Anyone bought LG LA6200? - Page 18

I increase color a little above normal 2d viewing as well, on my set it would be around "52". Brightness also at 52 on my set.
I also want to keep a reasonable color temperature, so for 3d I use on my set (and yours likely) the warm 1 setting. You will get more effective brightness if you use a cooler temperature, e.g. "standard" temperature setting, but somewhat less realistic colors.
I do also use "dynamic contrast" for 3d. Others might argue this to be not so good for black levels. However, I find the "low" setting is not too aggressive and it tends to brighten darker images with little impact on black levels.
I also use "trumotion" on a smooth setting for 3d only. To me it enhances the 3d. For blu-ray noise reduction is off. Edge enhancer as you please, I think most turn it off but I use it for some material. Sharpness I have around 15 on my set, i.e. not too high.
I enjoy 3d immensely. I am not trying to get a perfect color picture, but a pleasureable 3d picture. Maybe this will help a little. Sorry I am not an expert but this works for me.
thanks for the 3d tips, what are your settings for 2d? and for games(PS3)?

Leonheart my settings are tuned to my eye's delight, not calibrated and perhaps of no use to others.
However here they are for interest sake.

To clarify, I am in Canada. The la6200 is not listed on the Canadian LG site and I don't believe it is sold here.
I have the 55la6205, identical, but sold with the magic remote and 6 pairs of glasses.
Current firmware is 4.00.34

Using an "expert" or cinema mode, normal 2d viewiing including Blu-ray material.

Backlight 65 day, 60 at night
Contrast 86
Brightness 51
Sharpness levels at 15
Color 51
Tint 0
Dynamic contrast low daytime, off when the room is darkened.
Super Resolution off
Edge enhancer on (I like it!)
Color filter off
Gamma 2.2

All noise reduction off
Black level low
Real cinema on
Tru motion on user, setting 5 for normal viewing, smooth setting for sports
Color balance "warm 1", preferred by myself, somewhat "cleaner" and brighter, a carry over from my CRT days.
Just scan most of the time

I do have the PS3, but am not a gamer. I suspect I wouldn't hesitate to raise the color level, and use Trumotion on a smooth level if I were.
post #513 of 670
I'm really surprised at the backlight setting most seem to be using. Mine is set to 28 for 2D viewing and 38 for 3D. Anything much higher then that and light bleed becomes to noticeable and black level is not that good. Even during the daytime the 28 setting seems just fine, the screen is still plenty bright enough to see.
post #514 of 670
Rolltide , are you using tru motion for normal viewing also ? What's yours set at ?
post #515 of 670
The only time I might use Tru Motion is when watching 3D and then only set to user and 1, maybe 2 but never higher. I do not like the soap opera look and have never been a big fan of these tru motion features. I just don't see the benefit and the image it produces just doesn't look right to my eyes. Plus, when I was playing around with the setting and had it set on smooth, I could see some ugly side effects. When set to smooth I would see a double image on fast moving objects, happened a lot during the NY battle in The Avengers using the 3D BD. It's like the Tru Motion processing was a little to aggressive in trying to predict the next move and was slightly ahead of the actual image.

Honestly, things just look more natural and pleasing to my eyes with Tru Motion off, and every other video enhancement feature off as well (i.e. edge enhancement, etc.)
post #516 of 670
Does anyone know how to adjust the brightness while viewing the DLNA/Plex menus on the TV? The regular Smart menu is at a reasonable brightness, but for some reason I can't figure out where to adjust the brightness while viewing the DLNA menu/folders. Nothing worse than searing your retinas after exiting a movie Thanks.

I sent LG a email thru their contact with the 6205 marked for update troubles , hopefully they will fix it...I have no idea how to revert the TV to the firmware it came with.
post #518 of 670
I got a email back they told me to run it on cinema mode with true motion turned off.

That still didn't fix it , I had to run it in game mode to watch FX last night.

The PQ is outstanding for the price..I have had two vizio m-series, the m-series doesn't hold a candle to this tv IMHO....just keep the firmware the TV came with for now and you'll be fine.

That is what's so aggravating about this issue. It does not exist in game mode. But, with the limited color adjustments in that mode, you just can't get the colors right. In cinema or expert modes, you get all those color adjustments and can tune it in so the colors look great. Yet, when you turn off all the video processing, you still get lag/shudder.

It makes me wonder if there is video processing going on in the cinema/expert modes that never really turn off AND are not even available in game mode. When playing a fps on the ps3, I am much more accurate when in game mode than in expert mode. In expert mode, it just feels off, like there is more input lag going on. It may only be milliseconds but it sure feels off and the improved accuracy in hitting what you are aiming at while in game mode can't be ignored.

If I could use expert mode and not have the shudder problem I would be thrilled. Like you, when I first got the tv, it was not a problem. For me, though, the problem started after the first firmware update. It didn't change with the latest update.

HI,

 

any one can confirm if the LA6200 support 1080p24 or it use pulldown ??

post #526 of 670
Ever since the last firmware update' the tv is having issues with the external audio pass through. Whenever I set the Sound Out to anything but TV Speaker, the screen and audio blacks out every few seconds like the tv is losing signal. What is going on here?

I don't know why the subscription doesn't email me when there is a response to this thread....or I would have replied already.

but we can only hope they fix it with the next firmware release. one observation I found is if you turn the tv on before the cable box ,it seems to work a little better.

So I have had this TV for a couple of weeks now and really love it, the clarity of the picture is just outstanding (had a 2009 sammy lcd before). I have a PS3 hooked up to it and have been messing around with the RGB Full setting. So when I turn that on, I get much "richer" colors but the blacks get "crushed" and the picture looks too dark in general while playing a game. I used the new Arkham Origins game as my test bed in game mode keeping its default settings with CNET's white balance calibration. I then changed the Black Level from Low to High and now the picture has all brightness back that was lost when I turned RGB to full (I switched it back to limited and low black level to verify) while also keeping "richer" colors and more varied blacks (I noticed this on Batman's suit especially). I also turned on the Super White setting on the PS3 and these two changes really enhance the picture while gaming to my eyes. 

 

Really love this TV, it was such a great deal for all the features that you get for the price.

I bought a 60LA620 and I don't know how to synchronize TV with my Sony receiver. My previous Sony TV let me control the volume and power off/on of the receiver from TV remote. I have an optical cable and HDMI between devices. I put TV settings to external speaker ARC mode On and Digital Sound Out Auto. Any idea?

you only need one cable, you should be able to run the optical cable from the tv to the receiver.. adjust volume with the sony remote or program the cable remote to aux.

I want to control the receiver from LG TV remote (on, off, volume). Is it possible?

Just doing research at this point but thanks for the reply. I will give this thread a quick scan when I get the time but I was hoping someone could give me the highlights.
post #536 of 670
The TV had pretty bad light bleed in the lower lef and upper right hand corner, screen is pretty reflective buy tolerable. Vertical banding is pretty bad, especially on hokey but not as bad as some Sonys I have seen. black level is pretty bad and the motion jitters when watching some buy not all content. TV is great for watching football, and playing video games due to very minimal lag time

Just bought a LG 42LA6200, I have limited space of 38” wide in an armoire and I wanted a 3D passive TV. My choices were Samsung 40” UN40F6400 which is active so I didn’t want it, Vizio E420-DA0 which got good reviews but I think its bang for your buck type deal and I didn’t like it when I saw it at Sam’s plus I got the LG for $130.00 more than the Vizio so why not.

The LG is replacing a 2008 Samsung 120hz 37” LN37B650 LCD which is a great TV but I wanted a newer LED 3D TV with a nicer picture and 3D.

This LG TV has the best 3D I’ve ever seen with true 3D content, 2D To 3D is ok, maybe it needs some adjustments which I don’t know how to calibrate properly yet. My problem is regular HDTV looks horrible, I have Direct TV Genie connected to it threw HDMI, dynamic picture mode set and it looks like I’m watching cloudy SD programming and SD programming looks worse. I used this calibration http://reviews.lcdtvbuyingguide.com/lg-lcd-tv/lg-la6200-picture-settings.html and it looked even worse, dark, cloudy, blurry, non HD look to it. I tried a few more calibrations on my own with no luck. I watch a lot of NBA and when it panned out to the coach the camera started bouncing up and down and there are a lot of artifacts, and I tried both smooth and clear dejudder modes also with no luck.

My 4 year old Samsung has a better picture then this and dejudder works awesome and HD looks like HD. I did a lot of research on this TV and only one other review said something about HDTV picture quality, but I thought it was a fluke, there was also flicking on watching TV, dirty screen, bad black levels, internet issues.

I don’t know how 120hz works with TV because my Samsung had it also but both the LG & Sammy say 60hz when watching HDTV at 1080i or 720p.

I like bright dynamic picture settings with deep blacks (this TV does not have that from reviews) and nice colors, with clarity. I’ve seen larger sized LG’S at a few recently opened restaurants near me with beautiful pictures to my likening, what calibration needs to be done to fix this issue I’m having?

I can’t believe a 2013 middle of the line, but top of the line in the 40”-42” size class, has such a bad picture for television, and I love everything else in regards to features, looks,3D, etc about it but the most important thing is TV picture quality and this is the only choice I have till the 2014’s come out in March so any advice would be much appreciated because I have 14 days to return it.

Made my own thread on this also if it doesn't get answered here.

I just got my LG 55la6800 its a great 3d cinema and im loving it so far!


Is there any setup for the PS3? Why it doesnt support 1080 on the PS3?

Is it a better choice over Samsung series 8 55in?

That calibration you got is for the wrong LG, they screwed it up and I can't believe they never fixed it. Use CNET's calibration instead, its fantastic and I highly doubt you will find a complaint about the picture. The picture looks absolutely amazing with these settings for me. 

 

http://forums.cnet.com/7723-19410_102-600124/lg-47la6200-picture-settings/

 

For the guy above asking about the PS3 and this TV, be sure to go to the Display settings on the PS3 and choose HDMI and automatic and then the PS3 will see that it can do 1080p. The PS3 doesn't have a built in scaler so if a game is encoded for 720p, thats what the PS3 outputs it at. I use the game setting with the only modifications being CNET's white balance settings. The input lag is amazing. It looks fantastic. For blu rays I just use all of CNET's settings again and they look great. I also highly recommend that you turn on the Super White and RGB Full on the PS3. When you change the PS3 to RGB Full, you need to change the Black Level to High in picture options when you have it in game mode. You get the Full 0-255 spectrum, it really enhances the blacks and whites in games. For blu rays it has no effect, just be sure to switch it back to your blu ray settings or the screen will look washed out.

Hey guys just to let you know that those CNET calibration settings are good but not perfect. I had my LG50la6200 calibrated by an ISF company and the picture looks great compared to CNET settings now. smile.gif. The CNET settings were too dark and would crush the blacks, this tv doesn't have the best blacks but color on the other hand were almost perfect. I would highly recommend getting some one to calibrate your TV's because it is a night and day difference. One more thing is some of my banding issues and juttering have dissipated not gone but less prominent since calibration. Also this tv is not a sports watching tv and more of a movie tv, my firmware is 4.00.20 just to let you know.
