Adjusting the Picture settings on a Google TV™

    IMPORTANT: This article applies to Google TV. For Android TV™ models, refer to the Adjusting the Picture setting on my Android TV article. For other BRAVIA TVs, refer to the Adjusting the Picture setting on my LCD TV article.

    Picture settings allow for a wide array of changes to colour, contrast, motion settings, and brightness that can improve the way you view content. Picture settings are adjustable when viewing video streams, DVD/Blu-ray Discs, USB drives, and composite/component video content.

    NOTES:

    • A brief description of each item is displayed on the picture setting screen of your TV. Use this article as a reference to personalise your viewing experience.
    • You can alter Picture settings while viewing content.
    • When Auto Picture Mode is set to On, the Picture mode will change automatically based on the content. You may notice changes in brightness or saturation when this setting is set to On. You can also turn this setting Off if you prefer to choose your own settings.

    To access Picture settings, press the (Quick Settings) button on your TV remote, then select Settings → Display & Sound → Picture and then select a picture setting.
