I've gotten into the service menu using the tips from the Bruzzi page and CalMan forum. Unfortunately, I can't get to the proper page to adjust drives/cuts. This is what I've gotten so far:
INTERCAT2001
PCT-ADJ
OPTION
RM-SET
STB-CAS

If I press 1 I get:
PCT-ADJ PICTURE
AGC OFF
GAIN
200
YMAX
000

Press 1 again:
OPTION BOOT
ROM

Press 1 again:
RM-SET Code
A

press 1:
STB-CAS

press 1 again back to first page.

How do I get to the white balace adjustment page? My initial measurements of the set are pretty dissapointing, I'd really like to get it dialed in....

That model requires a special Panasonic remote control to access the white balance controls. I don't believe Panasonic has released the information on how to do this to the general public.

You may also want to suspect your instrument if the user settings are way off in white balance. My experience has been that these displays are not horribly wrong from the factory when you choose the best options.

Jeff,
That's truly dissapointing. I'm using a new i1pro. The grayscale is flat but with warm setting it's tracking at 5200-5700 degrees. My DE is >5 to over 10 across the board.

Thanks Tom. That exactly what I need.
I can't get their web order page to work but I'll call and order ASAP In the meantime I'll play with a few other settings besides cinema and warm to see how it measures....
