Picture Perfect is our way of helping you fine-tune your TV’s picture settings to suit both your eyesight and the room the TV’s in. Before you start fiddling with the settings, it’s a good idea to turn off any options that can change how the picture looks, and darken the room ready to do the tests.
Before you start altering the settings, it's a good idea to make sure your kit's set up correctly, and any picture options are turned off.
Connect your TV to a Blu-ray/DVD player or games console with an HDMI lead.
If you have a smart TV or an internet-connected Blu-ray player, make sure your kit is updated and running the latest firmware.
Most TVs have different picture modes, like ‘Dynamic’, ‘Movie’, or ‘Game’. Make sure you choose ‘Standard’ (or similar) mode for every input. Avoid ‘Dynamic’ modes, because their settings change as the picture does.
Switch off settings like ‘Eco-Mode’, ‘Power Saving’, ‘MPEG Enhancement’, or ‘Edge Enhancement’, because they change how the picture’s shown on the screen. You’ll usually find them in your TV’s picture settings.
A darkened room with no glaring lights is best when you’re changing the picture settings, so here are a few things to check:
A darkened room helps you see colours more clearly, so close the curtains or blinds.
Turn on lamps you'd normally have on when you're watching TV, but make sure you can't see their glare refleced on the screen.
Get to know the remote controls for your TV and Blu-ray player. Knowing where the buttons are and what they do will be useful when you’re moving around in the settings.
You should have received a ‘Colour Filters’ card with your Picture Perfect DVD. Make sure it’s handy, you’ll need it when you start going through the settings.
