Default Newbie color settings help needed...

I'm new to HD tv's so I decided to get my feet wet with a Sharp LC-26SV490U. My problem is that if I get the Reds looking good, the yellows turn a Chartuese/neon green. If I adjust to the yellows, my Reds turn pinkish purple. Any help on what I'm doing wrong would be really appreciated. My settings are:

Backlight = 50
Brightness = 56
Contrast = 53
Saturation = 50
Hue = 0
Sharpness = 10

Color Temperature: R gain = 114
G gain = 70
B gain = 99

Advanced Video: DNR = medium
Adaptive luma control = 0n
Flesh tone = off

Ambient light sensor = off

I'm not sure if you aware or not, but the color temperature setting adjustments directly affect grayscale/white balance, and to a much lesser degree color & tint and should not be adjusted without a meter and software.

Reset your color temperature settings, and utilize a calibration disc to adjust the color & tint settings.

Use the Spears and Munsil disc, it cames with tinted glasses to do the blue scale, and you need that, or have it done by a NTSC cert. tech.
That cal. disc is the best one I have seen yet. not that oters are bad, but none give blue scale glasses.

As said, Spears and Munsil is absolutely great. I suggest that you follow the steps in the stick thready "Proper 10 Step Basic HDTV Calibration", I found it really useful.
