for color they said to use the blue filter, which they didnt give me, they gave me a purple, red and green... i tried my best with the contrast setting, and i guess thats up to 40 while brighness is down to like 27 or 24
Don't use the filters use the colr guns in the service menu instead it's more accurate that way. the color guns is RGBS in the service menu.For adjusting brightness ignore the DVE narrator this is how you do it the right way. Adjust brightness untill the blacker than black bar is barely the same color as the background, don't adjust brightness untill the blacker than black bar dissapears that's when your crushing blacks.
I think the easiest way to adjust black level is to view material, especially people wearing black clothing,etc. This is the best way to adjust black level since there should be detail in those areas it should'nt be a blob of darkness. For example a person wearing a leather jacket, adjust untill you can see all the wrinkles in it, there should'nt be any blobs of darkness what i refur to as "Black Holes". You will see what i mean when you adjust it in realtime.
A few good movies to test are T2 ultimate edition or extreme edition, and pirates of the carribean. Both are excellent movies for shadow detail.
p.s. Lower your contrast setting,raising it affects black level and picture detail, it's not as sharp with it at a higher setting.Keep it in the middle, trust me on this
.For a bright picture to see shadow detail you want to adjust brightness not contrast,raising contrast will lose detail.
