Best Picture Settings for Samsung LED TV Series 7 (Movies & TV Shows)

When it comes to having the best color accuracy and picture quality when watching movies, switching the picture mode to movie mode is very important.

Before you get started, you should turn off the Eco Solution tab. This will ensure that your TV doesn’t alter the picture settings to suit your room condition but will rather stick to the settings you have put in place. You can find this by following Settings >> General >> Eco Solution

The Movie mode also gives you the ability to increase the picture quality as you see fit. After you’re all set up, go to the Expert settings tab and tweak the following settings;

  • Brightness – 0
  • Backlight – 21
  • Contrast – 45
  • Color – 25
  • Tint (G/R) – 0
  • Sharpness – 0

Best Samsung LED TV Series 7 Settings for Gaming

When it comes to gaming on your Xbox or PlayStation through your Samsung TV, the best picture settings and quality come from turning on Game Mode. To do this

  • Go to the General Menu
  • Enter the External Device Manager
  • Under the settings tab, tap on Game Mode Settings
  • Switch Game Mode On
  • Adjust your HDMI Black Level to make it Auto
  • If you’re gaming in SDR, leave Sharpness at 0.

If you’re playing games with HDR content, you would have to enable HDMI UHD Color. You would also have to adjust your backlight settings to the max for the best picture quality.

You can do more when the Game Mode is turned on by setting the Game Motion Plus feature. This improves the picture quality when viewing fast-moving images.

  • When the Game Mode is On, enable Game Enhancer
  • Set the Dynamic Black Equalizer value to 4
  • Click Game Motion Plus Settings
  • Enable Game Motion Plus
  • Set the Blur Reduction to 8

When watching sports and live/taped TV broadcasts, you will come across fast-moving images with a lot of blur that will make you miss out on many important details.

  • Go to the Auto Motion Plus Settings of your TV
  • Set Auto Motion Plus to Custom
  • Adjust Blur Reduction for 60fps content
  • Move the Judder Reduction slider for low frame rate content
