Firstly, like rlindo above, I also found that blue across the board was way too high. The LE960X features RGB gain controls for the 10-point scale, and I could never get blue down to anywhere near 100%, especially in the 0%-30% or 70%-100% areas.
I also find that from 70%-100%, any adjusts made to the individual RGB Gain controls had no effect on the readings, while the dE remained really high.
Any suggestions as to what I should consider?
Here is a before and after comparison of the greyscale, and note that the blue gain was reduced to its lowest levels at each step of the greyscale.
Any comments to help me learn tips on correcting identified errors would be greatly appreciated.
Awesome! I'm glad to see that you've stepped into the world of calibrating.
There are effectively a TON of notes that I have taken from the HCFR thread on how to set up HCFR and how to get started with a Sharp. Unfortunately I'm on vacation and won't be sble to get you those notes for another week. Anyhow, I'll go off my worn memory until then.
Start by using movie AV mode. This will usually give you the lowest dE out the gate and yield a color temp of closer to 6500k versus other AV modes.
My Sharp has RGB low and RGB high adjustments for the 2 point. Unfortunately adjusting the 10 point resets the 2 point. So most of us just stuck with 2 point adjustments. Start by adjusting RGB high using the 70% white test pattern. To do this have gray scale selected on the drop down in HCFR and then click the green arrow/button that says continuous test or whatever. Then click 70% and the test pattern should display allowing you to take a continuous measurement while adjusting RGB high controls. Adjust until you have the lowest possible dE value. Getting all the RGB bars to 100% will get you the lowest dE value.
Do the same thing with 30% utilizing the RGB low controls. Once you do this run a 10 point check and post it for us to check out.
Oh.... disable all image enhancement options like active contrast, edge enhancement etc.
Also, might post in HCFR thread. Definitely get lots of expert help there.
Did you get contrast, brightness and backlight adjusted correctly? No need to mess with color, tint and sharpness yet. These controls usually do better at their default settings.
