When you turn your TV on the picture quality may not be what you experienced in the store. That is because the ideal settings for your TV at home are sometimes different from the ideal settings in a showroom because of the softer lighting in your home.
Note the manufacturer’s settings in case you need to refer back to them and then turn off all the enhancement features. Take the picture down to a black and white picture to adjust the brightness control. Adjust the brightness control with the darkest picture you have on a DVD movie. With the dark scene on the screen adjust the brightness control so you can pick out the details in that dark picture.
Now find a brightly lit scene on a DVD and adjust the contrast so that the picture is clear without being washed out. Second go back to the dark scene and check the picture with this contrast setting. You may have to readjust and then go back to the bright picture and readjust several times until the contrast on the two pictures is satisfactory.
To adjust the colour go to a scene with close ups of people so you can make adjustments until the skin tones look natural. Typically “neutral” is the correct setting.
You will want to test and adjust the bass, treble and loudness levels to meet the unique features of your room that affect the sound quality from your television speakers.
LCD televisions have an automatic sensor to adjust the backlight to the light level in the room. This automatic adjustment results in better picture quality and reduces the power consumption of the television. Most often you will want to set the backlight adjustment to dynamic contrast or active control which will automatically adjust the back light to the picture on the screen making dark scenes darker and bright scenes brighter.
Depending on the make and model of television you are setting up there will be a series of “<a href=”http://www.ledtvs.net/advanced-settings/”>advanced settings</a>” you may or may not want to adjust. Some of these adjustments appear to be window dressing but others you may find useful. Check-out the instruction manual to determine what model specific adjustments are available.
