Edge Enhancement is the DEVIL!

Okay, so with this TV, Edge Enhancement is not listed anywhere. The only way to turn off Edge Enhancement, Is to switch Preset to PC. Edges look smooth! Wow it's amazing. The only thing is the colors look like crap! Everything looks muted, and blacks lose their crispness. I even calibrated the TV, with PC mode, and it still looks muted.

So, now every time i turn on this TV I'm on the fence, whether i want good color reproduction, or smoother edges. This is really bothering me, because my phone looks better than my TV! Of course, because of higher PPI, but this TV looks dreadful! I want to know if there anyway to make PC mode look better?

Thanks for reading, and understanding. All help is very much appreciated!

It's a really cheap TV you get what you pay for. It's also 3 years old.

You won't be able to fix the colour, even in the review they say colour accuracy is terrible. Edge enhancement looking through other forums in permanently on and cannot even be switched off in the service menu. Your stuck sorry mate.

@npiet1: @kadin_kai: ok, so i figured the problem. I looked up the calibration settings for this TV model. I put the TV in Standard mode, and changed the settings to the correct value. When i did that, it made colors pop, but not over saturated. It still had Edge Enhancement on, but it wasn't even that bad. Edges were relatively, smooth. Before, i had Contrast set too high, plus i had Dynamic Contrast set to HIGH. That's what made edges look so choppy. To go on that, colors weren't even vibrant they were washed out, from extreme Contrast.

Bad Settings: Contrast: 100

Backlight: 100

DynaLight: Off

Brightness: 50

Color: (85) To compensate with Dynamic Contrast

Tint: 0

Sharpness: (10) 20 is the max

Advanced Settings: Dynamic Contrast HIGH

Static Gamma: 0

Color Tempurature: Cool

B Drive: 0

G Drive: 0

Correct Settings: Contrast: 80

Backlight: 100

DynaLight: On

Brightness: 55

Color: 47

Tint: -10

Sharpness: (10) 20 is the max

Advanced Settings: Dynamic Contrast Off

Static Gamma: 3

Color Tempurature: Warm

B Drive: -12

G Drive -2

That's about it. Thanks for reading, and take care:)
