Sharp LC-60UQ17U 3D LCD HDTV Settings


Unit-to-unit sample variations, the viewing environment, and the source might render these recommendations less than optimum. They are provided only as a potentially useful starting place.

The settings here that are most likely to translate reliably from one sample to another are those involving specific features with only a few selections, such as Noise Reduction. The ones most likely to be subject to sample variations are video controls offering a wide range of adjustment, such as white balance (grayscale) and color management. Even relatively small differences in the common control settings, such as Contrast and Brightness, can shift the measured white balance, though the resulting visible change may be innocuous. Production line tolerances can do the same.

We strongly recommend that you find the optimum basic video settings for your sample by using one of the many available display setup discs, such as Digital Video Essentials HD Basics (Blu-ray) or the Spears & Munsil High Definition Benchmark. These will help you to set the basic controls correctly, brightness, contrast, sharpness, and sometimes color and tint. Experimenting with the more complex color calibration and other controls in the user menus will do no harm; the changes may be easily reset. But tuning a set "by eye" using these controls is no substitute for a full calibration, which is best left to a trained and properly equipped technician such as those certified by the Imaging Science Foundation (ISF) or THX.
