Solution to 'colour smearing/clouding/bleeding' in Samsung LED TVs. The trick is to 'trade' brightness for white balance. This allows you to remove the 'colour smearing' and maintain the deep black levels. First of all, make sure the HDMI Black level is set to Normal. For TV: Set your 'brightness' to 42 and raise all the values in the 'white balance' to 27 (found in advanced settings). For Xbox 360/PS3: Make sure the reference/RGB level is set to standard/limited. Then change your 'brightness' to 27 and all the values in the 'white balance' to 27.
