Samsung PN58A650 Calibration
PN58A650 Calibration to D6500K

Calibration: Samsung Plasma PN58A650
Precalibration Drawback: Black Adjust needs turning off. This feature electronically enhances black levels. Contrast improved significantly post calibration. There are plentiful menu setting options available on the Samsung plasma without having to access the service menu. For instance there is a complete set of white balance controls. Therefore, we were able to dial the PN58A650 in to almost perfectly to D6500K.
