Question about contrast?

SO ...I just picked up a really nice lightly used JVC RS20. Having set it up and done basic adjustments I have a REALLY nice image on certain scenes. indoor scenes and dark scenes the image has great pop and color....However on scenes where there is a bright light ( sunlight coming thru a window...brightly lit outdoor scenes ect) the image washes out for lack of a better term. Im hoping there is a calibration setting that will help.

is your room well treated? (dark walls/ceiling etc.. )
if not, it might be the reflecting lights from the bright picture is washing out the image because of the white walls/ceiling.

so I finished the room treatments and it helped..but still getting what I think may be bloom? the ceiling and walls are covered in black velvet. the scenes that looked good look FANTASTIC now! but still the scenes that were a problem before although better still seemed washed out..or over exposed ….Any other suggestions?

what does your gamma track show?
too much contrast?
