Here you’ll find the best picture settings for Samsung’s series 6 LED TVs.
Of course, there are differences between the various models and every year there are new TV releases, but the best calibration settings for Samsung’s LED TVs are following a distinct pattern.
We’re providing picture settings for most 6 series Samsung TVs separately, but if you can’t find your exact model on our website, you can use the settings provided below.
- Picture Mode: Movie
- Backlight: 3 (this setting gives you a deeper black)
- Brightness: 45 (with the brightness just turned down a little bit, you’ll achieve a lot more contrast)
- Contrast: 100
- Sharpness: 0 (on native 1080p or 4K content you don’t need any post-processing sharpening)
- Color: 50 (default setting)
- Tint(G/R): G50/R50 (default setting)
- Digital Clean View: Off (this won’t improve your image quality)
- Auto Motion Plus: Off
- Dynamic Contrast: Off (you don’t need dynamic contrast if you set it to 100)
- Color Tone: Warm2 (this sets the white balance to 6500k)
- Gamma: -1 (your image will look a lot smoother and sharper without any post-processing settings)
Eco Sensor: Off (if you don’t want to adjust your brightness manually, turn it on)
Energy Saving Mode: Off (modern LED TVs don’t use that much energy, so it’s not worth sacrificing any picture quality)
Auto Power Off: Off (if you prefer)
My TV does not have these options!
If your TV has more(or less) options than the above ones, always try to avoid any post-processing.
Most post-processing options are for retail store displays and “justify” a higher price than the low-end models.
Also, very important is to set your TV to a color temperature of 6500k, a blank sheet of paper helps.
Just hold it close to the panel and compare the “white” of the paper with the white displayed on the screen. This technique is also very useful to understand why the white in normal mode is not white. With these settings, you’ll be able to achieve the best picture settings for your Samsung LED TV Series 6.
