Calibrating the Samsung LCD TV allows the picture to show without any static on the screen. The calibration process also adjusts the picture to fit the screen better. It formats the picture to fit the best standards and measurements according to the size of the television output system. Various small adjustments are made over a short period of time until the optimal picture is achieved.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Turn on the Samsung LCD TV and press the "Menu" button on the remote control. Select "Video" and choose "OK."

  2. 2

    Select "Contrast" from the menu and adjust the contrast as desired. The best way to adjust the contrast is to put a DVD in the DVD player and pause it on a screen that has a white article of clothing on it. Increase the contrast by pressing the "Up" arrow key until it is at the maximum contrast setting. Slowly lower the contrast by pressing the "Down" arrow key until the white article of clothing seems the clearest.

  3. 3

    Fast-forward the DVD and locate a close-up image of a piece of furniture or a face. Pause the DVD. Highlight and click the "Saturation" settings on the screen. Press the "Up" arrow on the remote control to reach the maximum saturation settings. Lower these settings by pressing the "Down" arrow key until the image colour appears natural.

  4. 4

    Highlight and click the "Tint" option and set the settings at the midpoint. Highlight the "Brightness" option and increase the settings to the maximum level. Lower the settings until the black areas of the picture on the screen appear the blackest.
