Official Samsung LNxxB610/LNxxB630 Calibration/Settings Thread

9763 Views 12 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  KtrainHurricane
Well since I just got this tv (LN52B610 - Version: SQ01) and there's no calibration thread for it let me start one. The "Official Samsung LNXXB630 Owners Thread" is over 57 pages, I went throught the entire thread and copied all the settings people used. Let me know what you guys are using and which work best, maybe also what version you have since that might make a difference.

Here are my calibrations on the Samsung LN52B630 with a May 2009 build date. I just calibrated my UN55B8000 about 1 month ago, so heres another round of fun!!!Remember my lighting conditions are different from everybody else. So take it for what its worth. This TV is in my very dark bedroom with very little light most of the time. The only thing connected is a TivoHD running HDMI. If these dont work for you, try tweeking your settings off of mine.

DVE uses colored lenses and test patterns to calibrate the picture. While the lenses showed these to be good settings, I found them still a little too green and red. After making the changes to gain, the lenses didn't appear to change because the amount of gain in the colors changed, not the tint ratio between colors.

Give them a try and see if it works for you guys.

nice, I am gonna check it out see if it will improve my PQ
nice work, I will try them out and will post back next week sometime... I have the LN52B610
I haven't had a chance to try all these settings yet, but I think we need to estiblish 4 different types:


- 1 for Gaming (Probably with Game Mode On)

- 1 for watching movies (Blu-Rays/24fps)

- 1 for watching tv shows

- 1 for watching Sports (I would assume this is when we want TruMotion to be on)
Someone had mentioned in another thread that the Spears and Munsil Calibration Disk is better than the DVE calibration disk, but would not explain why. Is this true (I have no idea) and why? I'm pretty happy with Movie and Natural modes, but just want to make some minor adjustments to reduce Red color saturation and improve shadow/black scene details. If I turn down color a couple of notches, the overly red saturation problem is eliminated, but then the skin tones are a little off (but not enough to cause annoyance).

I've learned to manipulate AMP settings to my liking.

To clarify, I'm not interested in doing a thorough recalibration, just want to tweak Movie and Natural modes for a little less red and improved detail in the blacks.

Thanks in advance.
I can't find an option to adjust my Magenta, Cyan and Yellow colors after choosing custom. It just shows the regular RGB... any ideas?
What are the differences between the 10 settings above?


Has anyone done a calibration to HD (709) in a darkened room and come up with these settings?


Also can ppl post notes as to how they came up with these settings (eg Colorimeter etc)

You have to click on the "RED" at top of display (not "R"), right arrow over to get to the list of colors, and pick Yellow, Cyan, or Magenta from the drop down list.

Hello. I have been calibrating my TV and ran into a small problem. I am following the tutorial "Greyscale for Dummies" that is online and explains how to calibrate your tv using the HCFR program and the i1 sensor. The problem is that it states to set your "Brightness" at the 10 IRE to .0065% of your "Y" value at 100 IRE. This will allow you to get your Gamma to 2.2 at the 10 IRE. I presume that this is a good thing for the darkness of screen images in this range. My issue is that this method will greatly reduce your contrast ratio. If you use the flashing bars in the AVSHD disc to set your brightness/contrast, then the results for the brightness reading is drastically different than with the .0065% method. Is this a problem? I can't adjust out my contrast anymore using AVSHD flashing bars because it is at its' highest reading now without becoming pink. Do I need to be concerned with the contrast ratio if my gamma is set properly at the 10 IRE?


Thanks for any help.

Bob

awesome work! i'll try all of these and make notes on my findings. i'm camping this weekend, and I'm not bringing the tv with me...
so it will be at least a week before i get back with my results.

My girlfriend has this TV, and man does this thing SUCK. I have tried ALL of the recommended settings I have found (although there were not that many) and none of them look good. Everything is dark to the point where I literally cannot see a thing going on in any given movie, and when I try to "brighten" it up everyone turns neon.


Either I am spoiled with my Panny ST30s picture, or there are some other "hidden" calibration settings out there I have not found yet...

If you've got the LN52B630, watch a good blue ray with the picture set to NATURAL mode, with AMP set to clear. If your not getting an outstanding picture, then there's a problem with the TV. Make sure to reset Natural mode to factory settings, and then change Auto Motion Plus to CLEAR.


Wow, first post in this thread in close to 2 years. My 52B630 is still running strong with no glitching, fading, regurgitating.................

She has the LN40B610, but I am sure they are close enough...I will give this a try, thanks!
