1) Set AGC to '0' in CUSTOM PRO-SETTING 2) Update the firmware to v2.060 Here are the changes in v2.060 (related to ISF calibration and picture improvements) 1) Control ISF via ethernet (ISF auto calibration using Cal MAN).
Furthermore, installing the wrong Panasonic drivers can make these problems even worse.Please note: the software update will not explicitly state it is the Freeview Play update.Update June 21, 2011 Since this article posted I've had the chance to recalibrate and test CNET's TC-P55VT30 review sample using the new firmware.It’s very important that you do not interrupt this process.So even if your TV shows a blank display, please do not turn it off as this will interrupt the software installation.We were mystified because the TV's colors measured extremely well (Delta errors of less than 3 across the board), but compared to other well-calibrated TVs in our lineup, we saw a different story that contradicted the charts.Rather than mess with Custom further to attempt to resolve the discrepancy, we settled on THX for our evaluation.This explains why the colors are inaccurate even after calibrating the unit close to perfection.In my previous e-mail, I mentioned the two necessary requirements to calibrate the VT30 series properly to get a very good picture (color saturation and hue) satisfying REC709 specs.Recommendation: If you are inexperienced with updating Panasonic device drivers manually, we highly recommend downloading the Panasonic Plasma TV Driver Utility.This tool will download and update the correct Panasonic Plasma TV driver versions automatically, protecting you against installing the wrong Plasma TV drivers.
