Default LCD TV color settings, HELP!!!

I have a 32" LG LCD tv and i'm am having a very difficult time properly adjusting the color settings. Currently, maroon's appear brown and it's driving me crazy. Would someone who has the same or similar tv share their settings with me? Thank you in advance.

On my LG 32LC2DU flat panel LCD display, I found that the default settings were off. I haven't calibrated it yet, but the simple reduction of the "Picture" control to "Night Time" (reduces the maximum white levels = lowering the 'backlight") and setting the "Color Temperature" control to "Warm" (sets the panel closer to D65 - what it should be) works wonders for the PQ. These settings work fine for daytime viewing too. The blueish "Black" indicates that your color temperature is way too "cool" (= high, like D80 or higher, towards blue).
found this over at avs forum.

Then get a calibration disc and do it properly.

and a colorimeter if you are serious about getting the best out of your TV (x-rite i1 Display 2...roughly $200 on amazon, look it up)...can you set your colors individually? or do you only have color and tint controls in your user settings? you may have to get into the service menu to get your grey scale as good as possible...and your colors will come together

My Tosh has "ColorMaster" settings to adjust each color, "R,G,B,C,M,Y" individually...which would allow you to make magenta more magenta

mmmm, but I don't want my magenta to be more magenta;
come to think of it, I don't want my magenta to be less magenta either;
actually, I just want my magenta to be magenta.

Exactly what I found on my 42" LG PDP. It stays on the night-time setting most of the time.
