to start, keep it simple. Pro1 picture mode if you watch in fairly bright conditions. If it’s darker, Pro2.
leave everything else initially but after a while you can tweak other things like IFC
dont play too much unless you are an expert

Put the question on Panasonic tv forum the question is, I have replaced both A and P boards on my Panasonic TH-L32E6Z and the fault is still present. Cheers Andrew
Ps I am old and think a tv should last more than two and half years trying to fix it myself did electronic papers a long time ago

Could you share your settings ?
Sure.... But I'm no expert and my 950 hasn't been calibrated, so I just watch on pro1 or Pro2 and the only changes from default I have is:
to change IFC from Min to Custom, and under that everything is off or zero except film smooth, which I have at 3
And
To raise luminance on Pro2 from 30 to 45

Just remember if you want change settings away from default you need to do it for each input, i.e. each hdmi source you use.

Maybe under general TV discussions forum? Sounds pretty technical and advanced... Wishing you luck resolving it though

Has anyone who owns the GZ950 and already uses the most accurate presets i.e. Pro 1 and Pro 2 and then had a professional calibration done?

Did their appear to be much difference after calibration or not?

Yes there is a difference. The white balance is good but not full D65. The other area is panel brightness for the viewing conditions tuning shadow & highlights depending upon the source.

That's interesting, thanks for the info.

I currently own an LG EC930V OLED (1080P) and I'm considering the GZ950 as an upgrade.

I was using the EC930V in it's most accurate preset with all motion processing and edge enhancements etc switched off, (always prefer to have my TVs set accurately as possible out of the box) and had used a Spears & Munsil Blu-Ray to set brightness etc. After this, I then decided to have the TV calibrated by Vincent Teoh, and it did make quite a worthwhile and noticeable difference to the image on that set

It was just that with Phil's review on here and various people's comments generally on how accurate it is, plus the fact of saving quite a bit of money by not having it calibrated. I thought I might not bother having the GZ950 calibrated, as it was almost made to seem like a pointless exercise.

But, I'll definitely bear it in mind now.

Interesting thread. many thanks for sharing. I shall be taking delivery of mine in the next few days, so I think I will have to revisit and tweak things. Can I just ask what do people mean by having the TV professionally calibrated? Are there professionals who come and do this to your TV? Thanks

In the uk there are a number of professionals who will travel to your house to calibrate your tv.
every tv comes out of the factory slightly different so you can’t use other peoples settings.
they also have high quality equipment and software to measure the tv.
in addition they are able to take into account your viewing conditions and also should be looking at the whole video chain, so will include any other devices that you have connected to the tv, like bluray players etc. Calibrations are also done for each input port.
if you are thinking about getting a calibration on an oled, most say that you need to run the tv for at least 100 to 200 hours before having it done.
the main thing i would strongly recommend is to look for someone on the list recommended by this forum, as you can be sure of the highest standards, as there are people who claim to be professional who don’t really know what they are doing.
have a look here..

Ordered my 55GZ950 and should arrive on Feb 20th. Is there any thing I need to do to check the panel is uniform? I plan to use settings from this forum or should I just enjoy the set.

If you don't notice any uniformity issues in the normal viewing then there is no point to look for them in test patterns, just enjoy the set:)
