Samsung LCD calibration misstep - Page 2

post #31 of 135
I did the same but luckily I have a friend that bought the same tv. All I did was take pictures of each screen in the service menu and adjust mine accordingly. I believe that these are the important screens...I have the others if need be.

Start reading ALL the "Sticky" threads on the Display Calibration page one... and then re-read them. It will take a while to have all the acronyms and numbers and concepts start to soak it and get a "zen" for the relationships between them all.

Good luck,
Doc

I've been experiencing a strange problem after replacing my xbox 360 with a new one. The whole image by default is shifted about 3-4 inches left. I always use VGA out from my 360 and never had any issues with my original 360. I can temporarily correct this by using auto-adjustment in the tv's options but it doesn't save the config if the tv's input is switched or if the tv is turned off. In hopes of finding some sort of way to calibrate this I foolishly entered the service mode and incorrectly calibrated my tv's PC input. Now I have a Samsung registered tech coming in a week and am curious if anyone in the Ontario region has experience dealing with these people and if they have the means to recalibrate my tv (LNS4041D). They're called C Agusta TV Service.

Ok I just received a ph******* from this Samsung certified repair center who said they can't calibrate these tvs. I called Samsung to explain the whole story and they said since I entered the service menu it voids my warranty (which i knew) but they were only willing to refer me to a couple local service centers who may or may not have the proper tools to fix my tv. If someone on here is knowledgeable enough to help me recalibrate my tv or refer me to someone who can I would really appreciate it!

your photos of the service menu saved me!

This was originally a rar file. I converted it to zip. It should work now.

post #41 of 135
Could someone please post all the original settings of the service menu for the LN-T5281F? Seems there's more there then the pictures of the zip file show. Thanks.
post #42 of 135
Boy! I feel for you guys. This thread is reading like some John Carpenter horror flick.

I used to access my old CRT (Hitachi) service menu many years ago in an attempt to straighten out its geometry and never had a problem.

After reading the painful posts by many of you, I will never attempt to do so with the new TVs that are out now. Sorry to say that I learned my lesson only through your painful experience.

I sure hope those of you affected by this can solve your problems at a relatively low cost, short of buying new.

Samsung seems to be putting out questionable TV sets. If their TVs weren't having some problems people wouldn't need to enter the service menu. Further more, it is a shame that Samsung won't do everything in its power to just help folks get their picture the way it should be given what they paid. Seriously, how hard would it be to walk someone thru the settings?

I used a checkerboard pattern in 1080p on my PS3 and i get success but the contrast is all screwy with colors like some of you. I might just pay for professional calibraiton from CC and just get the guy to fix it but if I change my settings to the ones in the zip does it undo the calibration what? I have a 46AMV TV.

I've made the same mistake and adjusting my settings did make it better, but if you still have the additional screen shots, I'd like to compare. Thanks.

Sammy 3253H here. Anyone know how to adjust the sharpness using vga with movie mode in the service menu?
post #47 of 135
Do all Samsungs have this issue or only the newer Plasma and LCD models? The DLP models don't do this when you enter the service menu do they?

This does not happen just from entering the menu.

There is a calibration button, that people press accidentally and it causes a miscalibration if you dont provide the right patterns.
As above, you can then recalibrate correctly by giving the right pattern.

So this is some sort of an internal auto calibration? Do the older Samsungs have this as well? Or is this something that only the newer plasmas and lcds have?

I dont know about older ones, but newer ones have this menu. I guess it allows calibration after swapping out a mainboard or something if it does not look right.

Its a neat thing to have, but as you can see from this thread, many people mess it up. THen again, it is in the service menu, which people ought not to play with anyway.

Well I calibrated my neighbors 4661 recently and from what the i1Pro and HCFR reported, I don't know why you would even need to go into the service menu for that set. I got grays tracking great and color repro was excellent as well. The older set, definitely since you can't adjust grays from the user menu, but the newer ones, you can do that, so I don't see the need.

Please can anyone help on this? I have been asking about this for a few months now and nobody knows? I'm sure some one on here knows how to. I would really appreciate it if some one can help me on this slight adjustment and walk me through step by step.

I was wondering if anyone can give me some advice/help. I have a Samsung LN-S 4041D and I accessed the service menu. I then clicked on the calibration option, but didn't go any further. I noticed that a few things came on the screen...I believe they said passed or success and then the hdmi one said failed. I didn't have any active hdmi connections at the time so the screen was black.

I am not sure if I messed something up or hopefully I didn't go far enough into the settings to do anything. Just wondering if anyone can let me know if I did mess something up and if so can anyone provide me with pictures of the correct settings or the settings themselves so that I can change anything back?

The picture seems to be alright, but I definately want to to make sure. Thanks guys!

Dave

If any of you have any trouble in the service menu (hit the calibration) all you need is the file posted above IF you have the same TV or similar.

I did the SAME thing and went to where i bought my TV and they had no problem whatsoever letting me take down all the settings so I could restore the values manually.

That together with a few tips found in this forum my 4042H is looking better than it ever did.

I'm actually happy i messed up my tv because it forced me to learn how to use the service menu and get better picture fidelity.

Its not difficult to get back to square one if you have another TV to reference.

Chris,

I had a problem of dead pixel with my TV LNT4061fx. I got my panel changed, but since I didn't got the same high quality of the picture than before, the tech came back and went into the service menu calibration and you konw what? He messed up! The picture turned red and he didnt know how to fix it. I now have much worse quality of the picture. When I point this out, He said that the probleme is the main bord and that I have to change it too. I don't know if he is right. since my first replacement with the panel didn't went as good as excpected, I am afraid to change the main board too. Any Ideas? Please help me what should I do?

He likely played with the calibration and failed it. Read through this thread for correct settings, or go to a store and get the correct settings off a display TV. Or let them replace the board, or ask for a whole new TV if the quality is poor, based on their messing it up.

I have another question about this. Although my issues doesn't really seem to have caused any problems.

I never touched those calibration settings. However, I did do a master reset in the service menu. After I went back into the SM after the master reset, all of the calibration settings now say "failure". However, all of my actual picture settings are in the default factory settings that they're supposed to be at, nothing wacky changed. Also, my picture seems to be exactly how it was when all the calibration settings read "success" before I did the master reset.

So is this just a case where doing the master reset changes the calibration from success to failure, but the TV is still actually setup how it's supposed to be? Or am I going to have to recalibrate it like the others anyway?

Thanks, the tv picture looks really good now! I can see much more details in the blacks and the colors look more accurate... The picture is better than it's ever been; i'm guessing your friends set was calibrated.

Your pictures saved me as I hit the calibrate button by accident too! So many people on here hit the same button... pretty funny.
