    Active control

    Hi

    Is there anyway to switch off the active control feature or reduce itís effect?

    Itís making dark scenes too dark.

    Iím using a 42PFL6158K (i.e. Smart LED TV). The active control feature is driving me crazy.

    Many thanks

    Hi Sauliamt,

    I'm not sure what exactly you mean by active controls, but I have a idea that you might mean the dynamic picture settings.

    Have a look at the dynamic settings:

    HOME > [Setup] > [TV settings] > [Picture] > [Pixel Precise HD] > [Dynamic contrast]HOME > [Setup] > [TV settings] > [Picture] > [Pixel Precise HD] > [Dynamic backlight]


    Also have a look at the user manual in regards to other picture settings from page 36:

    Hi

    I just watched a Harry Potter film in near darkness. This active control must be faulty???


    Active control
    The TV monitors the incoming picture quality, the level of
    motion in the picture, brighter or darker scenes and the light
    conditions in your room. With these values, the TV adjusts the
    picture for best performance.

    Many thanks to anyone who can shed some light on this feature!!

    Hi Sauliamt,

    Did you have a look at the settings I suggested in my previous post?

    HOME > [Setup] > [TV settings] > [Picture] > [Pixel Precise HD] > [Dynamic contrast]

    HOME > [Setup] > [TV settings] > [Picture] > [Pixel Precise HD] > [Dynamic backlight]

    The Active Control is sort of a automatically adjusts the picture settings through the use of demo videos. It may however not be calibrating your TV to your liking.

    Therefore, please look at the picture settings I mentioned and any of the other picture settings are well, as adjusting these settings yourself will perhaps give you a better picture, one you personally prefer over the automatic calibration.

    Best regards,
    Ina
