    Hi Guys

    Did any one calibrate this model ( PN63C8000) yet?
    Anything special or straight forward. The same like “B” series?

    Best Regards

    You should just get the user manual and flip through it. There are differing firmwares out there so make sure the tv has the latest …



    Thanks Mike



    Hi Guys

    I forgot to follow up, so:
    I calibrated PN63-C8000 in June, but for 2D only.
    C series are a little different than B series.
    1 Terrible remote control. I pressed wrong button several times. (For example INFO or EXIT instead of arrows)
    2 ISF modes are already enabled. (Customer said that he didn’t go to service mode) All modes:
    • Dynamic
    • Standard
    • Relax
    • Movie
    • CAL-DAY
    I calibrated last three modes.

    3 There is nothing for us in SM. At least I didn’t find anything. Everything is in UM in Advanced setting.

    Set calibrates very well. There are many controls
    • 2 point white balance adjustment (RGB gain and offset)
    • 10 point white balance adjustment. (Available when the picture mode is set to Movie,CAL-NIGHT or CAL-DAY.)
    • Color space adjustment (When set to custom)
    • RGB only mode.

    Attention: When adjusting 10 points WB, check what is actually changing when you adjust RGB.
    In my case, to correct 50% I should set interval to “6” not “5”.
    Look at your grayscale and change blue or red for intervals 2, 5 and 8. Check which columns actually moved.

    Like before, HDMI Black Level should be set to “Low”, so brightness stays ~50%.
    On this display Gamma set to “0” gave me ~2.45,
    Red can not be set perfectly in this panel for 1080i. When I set x,y perfectly, Y was to high. When I lowered Y – x,y moved inside so I had to find compromise.

    Generally very good panel, good blacks and good colors especially for 1080p24
    I see more and more panels and FP with all controls necessary for perfect calibration. Who needs external processor with this new equipment?

    P.S. I didn’t use THX because I couldn’t do it perfect.
