Unless you are professionally calibrating
your TV, you should leave these adjustments alone. These values cannot
be accurately adjusted "by eye". Even the best trained eye cannot determine if the values are near 6500K as our eyes cannot accurately detect differences in the luminance of bright images such as white.
The reality is, unless you are using a color measuring meter and software, there is really no way for you to objectively know if those values are actually improving the accuracy of the overall picture, or if they are in fact making it look worse. Again, a meter must be used as our eyes are a horrible tool for measuring luminance and colors.
, I would reset your "Picture Settings" back to their "default" values, and then you can go through my >> Picture Settings Guide
<< to help you adjust your settings the way YOU want them. (It was written primarily with the JS
Series in mind, but will still apply to your TV model.)
NOTE: I do not recommend simply "copying" someone else’s settings as every TV (even the same model), every pair of eyes, and every viewing environment will be different. You can always use someone else's shared settings as a starting point
if you want, however, understand that those settings won't look exactly the same on your TV and, in some cases, might actually make your picture look worse. (For "real world" examples of this, see >this post
< by professional calibrator "Chad B" and this article: Sharing Calibration Settings
If you want, you can always use
's calibration settings as your starting point. And then you can always tweak those settings to your tastes.
