Best Picture Settings For Sony LED TV

Preparation

To adjust the basic picture settings in Sony LED television, you need to precisely go to the television home screen. Click on ‘Settings’ -> ‘System Settings’ -> ‘Eco’ and turn off the “Light Sensor”.

Another important setting you need to turn off is Reality Creation, Smooth Gradation and Noise Reduction. All these features can be accessed by ‘Settings’ -> ‘Picture’ menu.

Keep the ‘Backlight’ setting at 7 or 8. Set the image mode to ‘Standard’. Once you adjust it, choose ‘Advanced’. Switch off everything.

Calibrate your Television

Check the correct size of image. In normal cases, LED television stretches the signal that reduces the sharpness of the image. To correct the picture size, you need to open ‘Settings’ menu -> ‘Display’ -> ‘Screen’. Now set display area to “Full Pixel” and “auto display area” to ‘Off’.

Adjusting brightness

Brightness is another important feature that determines the quality of the image. Adjust the “brightness” on the LED television so that the “black field” present on the left corner is completely black.

Adjusting contrast

Adjust the contrast of your Sony LED television till the region on the farthest right side is of white color.

Adjusting sharpness

When a sharpness of the LED television is very high, the picture quality begins to look artificial and unnatural. This should be avoided. You need to correct the “sharpness” levels so that image does not have any bright border around it. If you see any white border, then reduce the sharpness till it gets disappeared.

Adjusting Colour Saturation

Color saturation is another feature that you need to adjust. It is advised to adjust the colour saturation level such that the skin tones give a natural appearance.

Additional settings

Once these basic picture settings are done, you need to go a little further. Check the advanced level settings.  We recommended some of the Advanced settings as:

  • ‘Reality Creation’ -> ‘On’. It will enhance the picture quality by restoring lost details.
  • ‘Smooth Gradation’ -> ‘Medium’. This setting will enhance colour gradations of varying sources. It is very effective on signals that are highly compressed.
  • If you are using only digital sources for viewing pictures, then you should turn off noise reduction settings.
