I know you can brick the Tv doing this. Is it worth the risk? Newer tv's provide a lot of settings

It depends on what you want to do and how badly. And, if you have correct, exact, directions for doing what you want to do.

I just want to improve the picture. I do not feel the need for a perfect calibration, so I guess accessing the service menu isn't necessary.

The risk of bricking the tv isn't worth it.

It's a panasonic TX32LXD70. I plan on reading some reviews and getting a newer one.
