You need to make sure that the HDMI ports on the projector are set to enhanced format and limited dynamic range.
Then you need to make sure the source is set to output full 4k resolution and 10/12 bit colour depth.
What disc player are you using?
Then when you are watching a 4k disc, you need to make sure that HDR (in the picture menu under expert settings) is set to 'auto'.
It might simply be that the previous user has set the contrast/brightness and colour wrong too.
Do a full reset on the unit if all else fails and try again, but if everything in the chain is set to full bandwidth and deep colour etc then the results should be very pleasing when adjusted correctly.
You will be better off asking your question in the 365 owners thread too.
I would also forget about loading gamma curves etc, until you have more of a handle on the machines settings.
