Hisense H4F Calibration Settings

This is video isn't for the settings of the Hisense H4F. It demonstrates the settings for the TCL P Series. It runs the Roku smart TV interface, which is the same interface as the Hisense H4F. Although it's not the same as this TV, it will still give you a pretty good idea of what some of the menu items do and how it looks. We will update it with a more current settings video if we make one.
For additional settings information, please consult the Common Problems and How to Calibrate pages.

The Hisense 32" H4F (32H4F) can't be calibrated and we expect this to be valid for the 40" model (40H4F). Here we demonstrate the available settings that you have in the menu.

These settings apply to most types of content, except for gaming which requires a few additional changes, listed below.

General Settings

Eco Settings

One of the first things we did was disable all of the Auto Power Saving features, as we don't want the TV to adjust the image during testing.

SDR

For SDR content, we recommend choosing the 'Movie' Picture Mode, as it is the most accurate one out of the box, and allows for the most customization. We recommend setting Contrast to '45', Brightness and Color at '50', and Tint and Sharpness at '0' and Color Temperature to warm.

To make the image brighter in SDR, you should first select the TV brightness range in the TV picture settings menu to one of the 5 preset options and then adjust the Backlight on the Advanced Picture Settings depending on your specific viewing conditions. Changing this setting does not have any impact on the overall picture quality. The Brightness setting is a picture adjustment setting, and we do not recommend adjusting it.

Gaming

From the base SDR, very few changes are required for a great gaming experience. When you start gaming, it is best to switch to the Game Mode to 'On', in order to get the lowest input lag and use the recommended settings for SDR.

PC Gaming

Unlike TVs from most other brands, no special settings are required for PC use on the H4F. Just make sure you switch the Game Mode to 'On' to enjoy the lowest input lag.

White Balance Settings

There are no features that allow you to change the White Balance Settings on this TV.
