I've recently calibrated my new set using the Sound and Vision calibration disk. Most of the adjustments were very minor. The one place I had a problem was in the calibration of the contrast, or "Picture". The disk says to adjust the contrast until the top white box in the test pattern blooms, or starts to bleed into the next box. I was never able to have that happen. Even at the upper most setting of the contrast blooming never occurred.

That suggests your Sony has a great power supply and the TV is of high quality. So, just adjust to a comfortable level for your use. There's no "correct" level for contrast/picture/white-level, unlike for brightness/black-level.
Not sure about your 910, but I think on most TV, a setting of about 40-50% in the scale is a good starting point.

Here's something you might want to try. Look for the scan lines in the brightest white box. This may be difficult with high resolution. Adjust contrast just short of the point where scan lines start to bloom into each other. Even though the box doesn't bloom overall, you still can lose resolution if the scan lines bloom into each other.
