    why bother?

    different panels of the same make and model have variance and need different calibration.

    doing this is futile as every individual panel is different and needs to be calibrated differently.

    yea i agree all panels are different
    but the idea is to give people a basic starting point from people with the same model as them

    Panasonic 42PWD6BX - ISF Calibrated.

    RGBHV Signal
    Cinema Mode
    Brightness 10
    Contrast 5
    Sharpness -5
    White Balance - Normal
    Gamma 2.2
    AGC - OFF

    Component Signal
    Cinema Mode
    Brightness 0
    Contrast 0
    Sharpness -5
    Colour 0
    Hue 0
    White Balance - Normal
    Gamma 2.5
    AGC - OFF

    It's worth trying Warm for the White Balance as that can look quite nice. ;)

    Panasonic 42PW7BX

    RGBHV Signal
    Cinema Mode
    Brightness 3
    Contrast 1
    Sharpness -7

    Component Signal
    Cinema Mode
    Brightness 2
    Contrast 1
    Sharpness -7



    Also need to state if your settings are within the first 200 hours. Brightness increased from 1 to 3 in the first 200 hours. This was calibrated myself using AVIA.

    Interesting i did adjust the white balance to warm to experiment and it produces quite a pleasant glow to the picture, may suit some films well. However with one scene in Star Trek Nemesis I found the sky colour of the alien planet was white with this setting, when in normal balance it returns to a very light blue which i think is the correct rendition.. still worth trying out with some films though

    Neither Normal, WARM or COOL are correct on any Panasonics. All will be wrong. Warm is probably closest to measuring correct temperature but most folk would prefer the Normal settting. Interesting thread.

    A good place to start is the factory default.

    brightness=45
    contrast=10
    sharpness=8
    colour=25
    happiness=80%
    there is still a problem with dark pictures which tend to have a green tinge :censored:
    bright pictures are looking very good with vibrant colour :smashin:
    pixels slow at times but hopefully that might settle down a bit as time passes :lease:
    i hope this helps some people and i would very much like to hear from other people that have a techwood :lease:
    i have no intention of settling with this model :oops:
    i have a five year warranty for faults or damage which i will take full advantage of :rotfl: :smashin: :rotfl: :thumbsup:

    Hi
    I am the not so proud owner of a Techwood TWP4210. I have had it for three weeks now, and it is still driving me mad :mad:
    Curry's have been out three times to it now to try and get a decent picture on it, to no avail, the last engineer who came got the best picture, but it was still crap. Spent hours on the phone to Curry's, who have finally agreed to swap it for another one :) (The next one can not be as bad (can it?))
    Just some info on this one I have at the moment, Basically I have slightly changed the engineers settings, apart from the sharpness, which I read on another forum, the engineer left it at about 10.
    Here is what I consider the best setting so far:
    brightness=58
    contrast=55
    sharpness=2
    colour=35
    happiness=10%
    When I get it's replacement I will report back. With good news I hope :thumbsup:
