You can set up Samsung through the "Service menu" by calling it with the "Menu" button on the remote control. Here, by default, the parameters are written in English. To make setting up your TV easier, change the language using the up / down button while hovering over the Setup item:

  • in the window that appears, find the "Language" mark,

How to get the best image: 3 tips

Do not watch TV in Dynamic mode. Overestimated brightness is tiring for the eyes, and the non-linear gamma of the image is often distorted. In most TVs, the optimal mode among the three ("Standard", "Dynamic", "Cinema") is the latter.

Choosing between the modes ("Cool", "Standard", "Warm"), the comfortable color temperature is the "Warm" mode (6500K).

Samsung has "Warm-1" or "Warm-2" at its discretion.

For the best picture, turn off any settings that automatically adjust brightness and contrast. Namely:

  • Dynamic Contrast
  • "Energy saving mode",
  • "Light sensor",
  • "Dynamic backlight",
  • do not use the "Dynamic" picture mode.
