Dabble with contrast and brightness
There are a bunch of settings you can fiddle around with yourself on TVs these days.
These include contrast and brightness – you'll find them on the TV settings menu.
Optimising what you see really comes down to personal preference, there's no right or wrong.
Contrast takes care of the bright bits of the image, while the brightness setting changes the dark areas.
Making either of these too high or low won't offer the best result but a slight adjustment might do the trick.

Colour temperature will deal with how warm or cool you want the images to appear, so have a play around until it looks natural and – most importantly – pleasing on the eye.
There are also some dynamic black and dynamic contrast options which are usually switched on automatically – turn them off and see if it makes things better.
