Samsung LED 32" picture quality help

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I brought a 32" LED on black Friday and I really like the tv, but the only thing that I have a problem with is the picture quality it's too bright and isn't that clear. I also have a Samsung 42" plasma in the living room and I compared the two pictures and the 42" image was much more sharper and clear. I brought a HDMI cable and connected to my 32" and that only changed the image color a little. Please I need help because if this image doesn't turn out like good I might just return it. I checked out some of the reviews and it got a lot of great reviews.

What are you comparing? Same image? What are you connecting it to? What's your source?

I am comparing the picture quality to my 42" plasma samsung tv in the living room.

This is the 32" Samsung that I own, but the color is not sharp and clear. http://m.bestbuy.com/m/e/product/detail.jsp?skuId=5605904&pid=1218671140673

I have it connected to HDMI cable and its connected to a cable box receiver. It still has the same image quality, it just changed a little.

Have you tried changing he different modes? Seems like you might prefer the "vibrant" setting. Sharpness can also adjusted in the menus.

I am just going to return it tomorrow and get different one. Which one should I buy this time, now they have a Dynex and inginga 32" but I am not sure if they are good brands. Please help with sources

Samsung's LED TVs are pretty much top-of-the-line. I'd say either your unit was defective or just wasn't properly configured.

Dynex/Insignia = generic, Best Buy-owned, poor quality (these are Best Buy's "we make ridiculous profit and give you crap" brands)

It doesn't sound like you tried to even configure it?...

Re: the modes, sometimes they're set to a "store" mode, which bumps the brightness and saturation. Look for that setting (my GF's TV, also a 32" Samsung has one).

The preset modes are only the very basics of configuration. If it's a new TV you will need to calibrate all the settings properly if you want the best picture/sound and also make sure that your source material and cabling is fine.
