Samsung LED TV: Too Vivid/Unrealistic Colors

Hi all,

Boutht a 27" LED Monitor FULL HDTV (LT27A550).

What a horrible model is this. But the worst part are the colors: they look like fluorescent/"radioative" version of any displayed color. Too strong tonality making everything look off.

I am wondering if I can fix this by adjusting white balance. If yes, please tell me exactly what shouldI do. Never did this before and have no clue how to even start.

White balance calibration may be my last resort, even when the white looks fine, before I trash it away because this TV colors are horrible by default and none of the other options being disabled ir tweaked made any major difference.

I have another TV from Sony (LCD) and colors are just right and perfect right from out the box.

Red is almost pink. Blue almost violet. Green looks too bright. Yellow looks too pale and greenish. But not too off to the point you think this TV is broken. This model just makes unrealistic color as this. Just horrible.

Thank you!

I took a look at the manual for your model online. If you have the remote, it should have a picture mode button (otherwise go through the menu to find it). Change the picture mode to cinema or film and the colors should be more accurate.

If that doesn't work, you likely have a bad unit.

Lowering the saturation will tame those garish colors.
