For five months I own a Panasonic TX-P50X10E (firmware 1009)

Yesterday browsing service menu I think I have changed the value of Contrast, which is the first you see on entering the menu. Can someone tell me what should be, and also if it is the same in SD and HD?

Also saw that in SD if I press the yellow button, the value is adjusted automatically.

Thanks to those who will give me a help.

Do you mean factory setting?

Exactly, I think the value was 234, but I'm not sure, and I do not remember if it was the same even in HD.

But if I apply the changes to the service menu, I also change this value?

In menu, go to "setup", from there scroll to "reset to defaults".

That won't change anything in the service menu. There is no reset for the SM values. This has been stated countless times.

I got the Spears & Munsil HD Benchmark Blu-ray Edition disc yesterday. I went through the calibration tests and found that when I got to the "Clipping" test I had to lower the Contrast down to 46 to make the smaller boxes appear within the larger boxes. This was mostly due to the red and green boxes. Pre-Spears & Munsil I had the contrast up in the 80's, which is where most people who have posted calibration settings have it pegged. The actual "Contrast" test did not show me anything to make me lower it that low (maybe I just missed the signs), but per the "Clipping" instructions, "If either of these [...patterns all are solid with no visible steps...some of the steps look wider than others...] occurs, try lowering the contrast control just until all levels are distinct and visible..." Does anyone have thoughts on what I found?
