Just wanted to post a shout out to Craig Rounds of CIR-Engineering. He stopped by my place on his Calibration tour on July 14 and did his magic on my LN-T4671F. Absolutely awesome picture. Craig was right on time. Very professional and answered all of my questions. Even helped me out with a PC issue which is all taken care of now, thanks Craig.

So I highly recommend Craig for anyone considering a professional calibration. You will not regret it!

Wow that sucks, have you seen sections 1.3 & 1.4 of the FAQ? These contain information regarding the service menu, bricked tvs and perhaps hosed firmware upgrades.

Good luck!

Hey guys,

If you recall, I wrote this review (LINK) after I calibrated a couple 81 series Samsung LCD's. I've done tons of these sets now and I still really like them!

Anyway, I am putting together a calibration tour that will include California, Arizona, Denver, and many stops between Chicago and the west... Check the map below for coverage.



If you'd like me to do your Samsung while I'm out please send a single email ([email protected]) with your full name, full address, phone number(s), and TV make / model. I can then register you for the tour so that you receive a "confirmation" email next week. Once you get the confirmation just follow the instructions it contains to book a calibration date.

Registration will be open until at least mid September, but after that it will become very difficult to add more customers... so let me know ASAP if you are interested.

Please contact me for pricing as the situation dictates. Usually my price will include all inputs and scan rates. I also verify that the source matches the calibration and when possible make adjustments to the source or display device to help compensate.

I've tried reading through these threads and because I'm such a newbie to this stuff it gives me headaches. I am looking for what I believe to be two separate setups. On one hand I have Charter's Motorola HD cable box hooked to the TV via HDMI that we watch TV on, mostly sports/movies/HD programming. On the other hand I have a PS3 connected via HDMI that I watch upscaled DVDs, Blu-Ray movies and play games on. Should I use the same or different settings for each? Which settings are pretty much the consensus for each?
BTW, I like the 3D effect that AMP provides; it is what sold me on the TV in the first place. CC had the TV by its front door playing Transformers and the 3D effects blew everyone (including me) away.
The downside is that I still experience TBE. I checked the firmware and am running 2004.0 so I don't believe it needs to be upgraded.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I haven't checked this thread in a long time (4 months about) is there anything new I should know? I've definitely stopped fiddling with my TV. Is there new Firmware that I need? Has the TBE been fixed?

Thanks.

I originally posted in the owners' forum thinking I was in the calibration thread. Sorry about that.

I have 5271f which I bought last year w/FW 1009. I followed this great forum to get best settings for dynamic and have been very happy w/the results. I just changed from Comcast to AT&T fiber optics using same HDMI cable and my signal to the TV has changed. The picture was so bright I had to turn down the backlight 3 ticks. The very darks are all black wo/definition. facial skin tones seem to be matted wo/the sharpness of before and there seems to be a touch more pink. Is there a different set of settings for AT&T/fiber optics feeds?

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hey guys i have been monitoring this forum for about a year now and it seems no one has posted settings for ps3 with a 1013.1 firmware even though Ive seen many requests for it. I would also love some ps3 settings so my blueray movies can look the best possible. If anyone has a 71 series with 1013.1 firmware and also a ps3 please post which settings you are using as it will be a big help to alot of us.

Thank you

Hi all. My 46" came in a few days ago after having to get a new set due to a bezel break. I used someones calibration results, but the blue spectrum is just off. I have a Topaz blue menu screen that looks like it is algae green and the same goes for the University of Kentucky's uniforms. Is anyone else having issues with their blue color? Is it possible that part of the motherboard or processor that handles cyan is broken but all other colors are fine?
I reset the calibration back to the factory presets and the problem is still present.

Thanks.

I've tried posting this in the 4671 owners forum but have had no response regarding my calibration problem. My setup is as follows:

Sammy 4671 connected via HDMI 2 to a Denon 3808 receiver. The 3808 has both a Denon 2930 DVD player and a PS3 (which I use for Bluray movies) connected to it, and of course both players are going through the 3808 receiver to the HDMI 2 connection on the 4671.

I've calibrated the Denon 2930 DVD player using Avia II with the 4671 in Movie mode and am very happy with the settings. However, when I play Blurays through the PS3 with the 4671 in Movie mode (same calibrated settings used for the 2930 DVD player of course), the image seems to dark. I was hoping that I could calibrate the Standard setting in HDMI 2 on the 4671 for the PS3 using the Avia II disc and use that setting exclusively for the PS3 Bluray movies , however with the Standard setting I do not have access to all of the functions as with the Movie setting (color tones for example - Warm 1 and Warm 2 are grayed out).

Surely someone else with the 4671 connected to a receiver with multiple movie sources has encountered the same problem: what is the best way to address this?

Sorry for the bump. I'm having the same problem as the previous poster. All the calibrations I've tried for my PS3 during BluRay playback generally have an image that is too dark. Shadows tend to cross entire sides of faces. Anyone with some tips/suggestions would be thanked.

Guys...try calibrating your 71f's via the PS3 with AVS HD 709:
https://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=948496

What this does is provide a AVSHD file of calibrations which is a virtual HD 16:9 method of doing calibrations. You burn the file onto a regular DVD (from your computer)but it can only be used on the PS3 blu-ray player!
It's easy, fast, and gives you a good overview of what BTB(brightness) and overwhite (contrast) actually is. Best of all...it's FREE.

Before the cal:
1.Make sure you have the PS3 set up correctly before doing calibration of the 71f.
2.use a decent HDMI 1.3 cert cable to make sure the full bandwidth of the PS3 is utilized
3.best to first do everything with PS3 direct to TV....then latter put the AVR in the mix

BTW, I find it impossible to get all the calibrations spot-on....probably only a certified pro calibrator can do that.

all is good....LNT4671 1005/1001 SQ01 w/old PS3 80G,Oppo 83 & 2400ES into Mirage OS3FS

I download AVS HD 709 (https://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=948496) work with Movie mode and warm1 but I can´t have a great greyscale because always have a lot of green.

I work for + 3 months with many variation of calibrations on this thread until I read that excelent Greyscale & colour calibration for dummies (about a week)

http://www.curtpalme.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=10457

contrast setting not responding
ok so ive just received my calibrating dvd (dve hd basics). My tv is a samsung Ln-t4071 (lcd). I will be using the ps3 as a bd player. i have a few concerning about how to setup everything before i start the calibration (keep in mind that this my first time performing a calibration).

1st how do i set up my ps3 settings?(video output format-RGB or Y Pb/Cb Pr/Cr- ,RGB full range HDMI -limited or full- ,Super-White -on or off-, as well for other ps3 settings) Im also using a hdmi connection.

2nd how do i setup my tv menu settings? (should i start the calibration with all the settings on default?, i watch tv in a completely dark room so where should i set the backlight level and should i use the idealume bias light during the process?, i will do this process with th movie mode selected but what is closest to 6500 k -warm 1 or warm 2-, and what about all of the detailed settings, HDMI Black Level and the energy saving feature)?

3rd so far i watch the introduction part explaining how HD has progressed in time, i also tried the basic calibrations ( btw not all of the patterns are narrated and explained very well especially for a non professional noob like myself).
Setting the balck level was a breeze but the contrast is another
story. Using the reverse grayscale pattern I could not get any of the steps to merge together at the very end of the peak white, even at maximum contrast setting. So how do i set the contrast when this pattern is not responding. I know lcd tv s produce very bright whites as compared to other panel tv s but im sure the creators of this dvd must have considered this.
Also sharpness doesnt seem to function either because even if i set it to low or high nothing on the screen changes( no halo or white edges, sharp or dull).

4th The results i got with this DVD were awfully close to what i had achieved with just using my eyes to calibrate my TV, so in a sense this dvd seems to have been pointless in achieving better picture quality ,ok maybe just slightly better results.

5th How are other calibrating dvds compared to DVE? Like the AVS HD 709 or Avia 2( not in HD though)

I know that im not trying to achieve miracle results or differences being day and night from MY previous settings(but probably compared to the default settings). But maybe i would be able to see difference if i can properly set my ps3 and tv settings before starting the calibration process.

I have a bit of a dumb question for gaming.

I have the LN55A950 i purchase for the living room in december and the LNt4071F that i have owned for over a year now.

For some reason while playing Gears of War 2 online on the 55 i play better than on the 40. Found out that the newer model has 4ms Response time and the older model has 8ms... Does the Response time affect my gaming because i feel like i am always delayed on my gaming with the LNT4071F?

hey where did everybody disappear to? Is this thread all of a sudden on life support? I had to look on the 7th page, WOW i thought i would have to look in the archives.
Ok i will attempt to revive it. I mean is everybody given up on calibrating the 71, or is everybody mesmerized by the luxia series? So am i, lol.

Anyway if any one stumbles in this thread by mistake or something maybe he can help answer my question.

i tried calibrating my 71 with the DVE HD Basics dvd and cant understand the contrast setting pattern(grey scale reverse). I turned the contrast level all the way up to 100 and it wont bloom or clip or meld or mesh or blend, im talking about the last two steps.
I wont leave it to max because i watch tv in the dark and i care about my eyes. i noticed from all the calibrations in this tread that the contrast was somehow set, how?

I had no problem with brightness or color but i didnt understand how to set sharpness. Why wont it do anything even though i set it anywhere from lowest to highest. There is no halo or edging or anything. Is it like the placebo effect or what?

I think first you need read this to help you get a better calibration:

http://www.curtpalme.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=10457

I have the same problem with contrast. Try to going to 100 and you note that grey color change to blue, if you going to low this change to red , then going back until you get the same gray color for first to last (before white). I try too only see bars before white (253 I think)
About sharpness, in my case have on 20, but i have Edge Enhancement on because if i turn off, i see blur image, and found something too, this help me to see in contrast test last bar before black if i going up.

I use AVS-HD 709 to make my calibration but I hope this help you.
