    Hi Everyone,

    I just got my KV-32FS100 home yesterday and am troubled with the lack of dark-area contrast. What I mean is that if someone is wearing a black or dark suit jacket, clothes, etc. that there is a general lack of detail and all the dark stuff seems to run together. I can't really adjust this without washing out the lighter areas. Is this just a characteristic of these tvs (my friends trini vega does the same thing)? If I can't get this "muddling" of the dark stuff fixed, I'm thinking about taking it back and saving 100 bucks withe the JVC "L'Art" that I saw. The Toshiba's reds were WAY too hot. Any help appreciated.

    It sounds like you just have to adjust the normal picture controls: Brightness, Picture (contrast) and sharpness.

    oops, that's Trinitron not Trinitroun.

    Anyway, I've adjusted the picture controls many different ways and I know what they all are supposed to do. For instance, Sony calls contrast "Picture." A seemingly obvious way to fix my problem would be to either increase "Brightness" or "Picture" or both. However, this tends to "wash out" the lighter tones too quickly. Maybe my problem is a characteristic of these massive, dark "comb filters" that all the flat screens use. My 300 dollar Sharp 27' isn't nearly as sharp but it did produce an even contrast across both light and dark colors. Does any of this make sense?

    Maybe you should get the Avia disk and make the adjustments to their objective standard.

    OK

    I did a little broader search through the archives with these terms ("dark contrast" "too dark"). and have discovered that I'm not the first to notice this. Calibration with the Avia disc has yeilded no improvment for at least one discriminating viewer. Another person mentioned making a change in Service Mode that helped. I'll continue on this thread with any developments.

    Maybe try setting the Y-DC to 0 to improves BLACK background level retention int eh service menue. It come from the guide found here.

    Thanks The Sim but...
    My model doesn't have "YDC." I'm pretty sure that the equivilant is "DBLK" on my set. However, I've already changed it 0 and I could notice VERY, VERY little difference.
