Just bought a new UN43TU8000FXZA last week and still trying to

adjust picture to please me, but I'm not having much luck.

 

I am upgrading from a very old 32" Panasonic model, and I realize

TVs have only gotten brighter since then, but I'm having

quite a time getting this new TV to look nice in my living room, which

I like to keep fairly dark.

 

Below are my current settings, which are the best I've been able to get

so far, but brights are still far too bright and darks are too dark and murky.

Any help from anyone would be greatly appreciated.

 

Brightness: 17

Contrast:   17

Sharpness: 10

Color:  22

Tint:   0

Gamma:  2.2

Shadow Detail:  0

Contrast Enhancer off

standard tone

eco solutions off

 

I even got into the 2-point white scale and turned down the RGB gains down by 1 each.

 

Also I feel like I should mention I watch TV through a Roku stick plugged into one of my HDMI ports.

I don't own a TU8000, so I don't know if this exists on your set, but do you have an "Intelligent Mode" setting? If so, do things change when you turn it off?

Picked up a 43 inch TU8000 a few weeks ago.

 

After a lot of tinkering with settings and trying various other ones I'd found online, I've pretty much reset all the picture settings and just running the default settings in 'Standard' mode. Only changes have been to disable all the Picture Clarity settings to remove the soap opera effect.

 

For HDR I set the Contrast Enhancer to High to brighten the image.  Only other thing is I'd definitely suggest switching the Colour Space from Native to Auto for everything whether it's SDR, HDR and also if using Game Mode too on console inputs as it definitely gives more accurate colours with less over-saturation.

REALLY appreciate the reference to “soap opera effect”! I just purchased this TV and was really annoyed to see that everything had a weird look like it was being broadcast live, which is also how soap operas have looked for years. I disabled the Picture Clarity stuff as you suggested and it looks much better. Thank you!!

This is just my setting, so you can have an option. This setting is more like a universal setting so like if you want to play game you don't have to turn on the game mode. Also this is for streaming video and movie (Youtube, Netflix, etc).
If it's too bright, you can reduce the brightness and the contrast. This is for Samsung TU8000 43 inch:

SDR:

Picture Mode: Movie
Brightness: 50
Contrast: 50
Sharpness: 10
Colour: 25
Tint: 0
Picture Clarity Settings: Custom
Judder: 10
Led: Off
Noise reduction: Auto

Contrast Enhancer: Off
Colour Tone: Warm1
Gamma, BT.1886: -1
Shadow Detail: -1
Colour Space Settings: Auto

HDR:

Picture Mode: Movie
Brightness: 50
Contrast: 50
Sharpness: 10
Colour: 25
Tint: 0
Picture Clarity Settings: Custom
Judder: 10
Led: Off
Noise reduction: Auto

Contrast Enhancer: High
Colour Tone: Warm1
Gamma, ST.2084: -2
Shadow Detail: -2
Colour Space Settings: Auto

Black level: Auto (for both sdr and hdr)
