How to Calibrate a Samsung TV

By Maxwell Payne

Samsung makes a wide range of television sets in different sizes and screen technology. Like all televisions, they come with the ability to calibrate the screen settings. Adjusting these settings is useful for ensuring that the picture is viewable in different lighting conditions, viewing distances and your own personal preferences. You can adjust the settings in real time to see the impact of the changes on the screen dynamics.

Things You'll Need

  • Remote included with TV

Step 1

Turn on the television and press the "Menu" button on the remote. Press the "Enter" button once to get to the "Picture Settings" menu.

Step 2

Press the "up" and "down" arrow buttons on the remote to move up and down the menu options. When the item you want to adjust is highlighted, press "Enter." For example, if you want to adjust the "Brightness," press the arrow buttons until "Brightness" is highlighted, then press "Enter."

Step 3

Use the "left" and "right" arrow buttons on the remote to increase or decrease the particular setting. Pressing the "left" button will decrease levels, while the "right" button will increase levels. Press "Enter" when you are satisfied, followed by the "Exit" button. Repeats Steps 2 and 3 for each additional item you want to adjust. If after the adjustments the picture still isn't calibrated to your preference, proceed to Step 4.

Step 4

Press "Menu" followed by "Enter" to select "Picture." Scroll down to the "Detailed Settings" option at the bottom of the menu and press "Enter."

Step 5

Scroll up and down to select options to adjust such as "Black Adjust," "Dynamic Contrast" and "White Balance." Press "Enter" when the item you want to adjust is highlighted. Use the "left" and "right" arrow buttons to set each item to the desired setting and press "Enter" when this is complete. Press "Exit" to leave the settings menu.

Tips & Warnings

  • Select "Default" or "Reset" from the main "Picture" settings menu to restore the screen settings to the factory default.
