I know it shouldn't so I want to know if anyone has good calibration settings to get my the best picture on the tv. The picture right now is too blurry and too dark. Some stuff looks old on it and some dent! Please help!!
The default mode on this TV is Standard Mode, which is a bit dim and dull. Go into Picture Settings menu and change to Custom Mode. Under Pro Settings change panel brightness to High. Have AGC on 12. Put gamma detail on S-curve. Then the TV is plenty bright. In fact, I have Brightness set to 0. Have CATS turned off. And to make the picture sharper, turn Sharpness to 85 to 90. Then this TV is very bright, with vivid colors that pop. Contrast 95. And images are sharp. Although some don't like the sharpness this high, it made the images appear sharp to me. But adjust to your tastes in Custom Mode. Much better than Standard Mode. Also see ST60 threads in Plasma Displays forum.
