I finally upgraded my old faithful Hitachi 51S715 with this new Samsung plasma - My only complaint is that I wish I didn't wait so long to buy this Plasma. I kept reading about these Cal-Day and Cal-Night settings so I got up the nerve and entered the service menu. My dumb a** made a mistake and went into the section that shows HDMI Calibration. It had a check mark next to it and instead of hitting the return button I hit the enter button of course - by accident. The check mark changed to "Wait" and then finally to "Fail". I'm just wondering how badly I screwed things up. I'm happy I didn't brick this TV but I'm still kicking myself for this stupid mistake. I then did a factory reset but the picture does not look as good as before with the same settings. Also, after the factory reset - I went back into the Service Menu and saw that the HDMI Calibration still shows "Fail". I was wondering if Samsung might have a Calibration file that I can upload back into the TV and restore the Calibration. I'll probably try the Remote Management from the Support menu or Samsung directly. Unless anyone might know another way to fix it - I would greatly appreciate any advice on this. Finally, I was able to get the Cal-Day and Cal- Night options afterwards but I'm so pissed I'll probably rip the Mute, 1,8 and 2 buttons out of my remote. There were so many warnings about this too but I just got mixed up between the enter and return buttons......
