26LS3500 very bad picture quality, what to do?


Novice Member

I bought 26LS3500, I bought it last week hovever I see manufacturing date April 2012, so it's from first batch when production starts.

My problem is, that picture on this TV is terrible. I'm not super expert, but I see that picture is bad. Red and orange color is very strong, when someone wear red shirt, the red color is very strong. I already turned off "dynamic color" from settings but it's same.
Of course I can reduce colors in video settings, but then other colors are almost gone.

Backlight in this TV is also lower than I expect.

Today I watched Tour de France, when many bycicles was on screen it looks terrible on dark/bright edges. I must reduce sharpness from 70 to 20, then this effect disappear, but on other scenes it looks little blurry.

Of course I upgraded firmware to 3.13.13 but nothing changed about picture quality.

Anyone has any advice for me? Is there way to completely disable video processing or is there some hidden menu with more video settings?

many thanks
