A last-minute project will bring me to the Dubuque, Cedar Rapids, Davenport area the first part of next week. Contact me if you are in need of a top-shelf calibration.

I have my work done by Robert Busch from Busch HT in Santa Rosa. He is one of the best and has been doing this forever. Give him a call. There's really nobody in this area. he did my 65" 950G, and he definitely knows LG's.

Hey everyone. I was curious, does calibrating a TV void its manufacturer warranty? Say for example, I'm still within the first year, and I get it calibrated, then something with it fails that has nothing to do with the calibration, will the manufacturer still honor the warranty?

I guess my paranoia from modding cars in the past has caught up to me.

There would not be a problem with warranty unless the product is physically modified or the set is damaged from service menu changes.

Physical mods were common with rear projection TV’s, but not today. I have seen some consumers trash their sets from service menu changes in the distant past, but the value of those changes is nearly zero today. Manufacturers have moved the necessary settings into the user menu in almost all cases today.

If a calibrator stays out of the service menu and does not physically alter the product you will be fine as far as your warranty is concerned.

Thanks for your input. It was my understanding that calibrators have to access the service menu to calibrate some sets. Or is there another menu i'm confusing it with?

That is an incorrect understanding. There is no need to access the service menu to obtain significant improvements in image quality. Some may do it. I personally would not choose someone who does without a very good reason to do so. Manufacturers have moved the controls needed outside of the service menu because consumers were bricking sets by changing parameters they should not.

For example, color wheel timing in a Sim2 DLP projector requires service mode access to correct. I do access that menu when this is required.

I recently have had to factory reset a few of the LG displays my competitors have calibrated because the client was so unhappy with the results. Luckily the mess they created was removed by this.

Houston ISF Calibration

Can anyone recommend an ISF calibration EXPERT in Houston?

Apparently there aren't any ISF Level II certified folks in Houston. And being ISF certified doesn't mean that someone is truly awesome at calibration.

I need an Epson Pro Cinema 6050UB calibrated.

TIA

I can’t get the search function to work.
I am just outside Traverse City, Michigan.
Have a brand new 85” Sony 950G and considering a pro calibration after I get some run time on it. Only thing locally is Geek Squad that I found.
Does anyone service or travel through this area?
Probably cost of travel kills this service here but thought I would ask.
Thanks! Pete

Does anyone have any info/feedback on this southern California HDTV calibration service:
https://www.coastcalibration.com/

COAST CALIBRATION ISF LEVEL III VIDEO CALIBRATION SERVICE
Serving San Diego and Southern Orange County.


Their price is a flat $299 for any type of panel and includes SDR and HDR/Dolby Vision calibration. Is that reasonable?

Looking for Recalibration on my Kuro 101fd (D-Nice did original) - in NJ

Hi - looking for someone to do a quick calibration on my Kuro 101FD in NJ.

D-Nice did the first one many years ago. If you read this - can you send me a pm. Or another top calibrator.

It still looks great, though I feel it isn't absolutely mind boggling like it used to be (maybe I'm just used to it?). I only use ISF-night mode.
It probably has absurdly low hours - I don't really watch tv except every couple weeks a movie or sports (sometimes weeks will go by without using it)
