Optoma HD39Darbee Calibration HELP!!!

Guys,

I have no idea what i'm doing. Ever since I got the HD39Darbee I haven't been able to get it looking right. All the colors look blown out, even when using the presets. Almost looks distorted or out of focus but i've adjusted the focus using the test pattern. I know it's something i'm doing but I don't know what. PLEASE HELP!

Can anybody recommend some good baseline calibration settings that you guys have come up with?

Here's some of my settings attached

Taking pictures with the lights on doesn't help.

I literally linked a calibration disc in the previous post.

There are no universal/baseline settings, it's setup and user specific.

On my Optoma I remember Cinema and Reference being the most accurate.

Turn Brilliant Color off.
Can't remember what the Color setting in the Display menu did.
Try playing around with the Darbee settings.

The images don't look out of focus.

As I mentioned, there is a link for a calibration disc that you can use. Other than other calibration discs, only a calibrator or self calibration via external hardware (like colorimenters) would help.

Also this model has a RGBCY color wheel which does not offer the best in terms of color. The best color wheels are RGBRGB.
Some people are fine with non RGBRGB color wheels though.

LE: also set the color space correctly:

Many Optoma's will also have a setting called something like "Dynamic Black" or Dynamic Contrast" (sorry, it's been a while), and turning this OFF can often help the image look more realistic and natural.
