I've been reading this thread and other's, closely, to try and gain some tips in improving the picture and have found them very helpful.
Anyway, yesterday after reading Joxer's analysis, and analysing, shpankeys post of calculations, i was itching to try it out, just to see if there is any difference.
After keying in these changes posted by shpankey:
Red-Drive - 4 from default
Green-Drive = same as default
Blue-Drive - 5 from default
Red-Cut + 7 from default
Green-Cut = same as default
Blue-Cut + 7 from default
WOW! there is a MARKED difference to the picture, all colours are truer and the yellow/pink cast i had is gone. Vastly improved grayscale.
Bear in mind this is on Cinema setting on SD Format in the sevice menu, as i was watching Cable SDTV.
Will try HD later.
The panel has only done 62 hrs--Can i keep these settings or should i run in the panel for at least 100-150 hrs?
For now i have changed them back to original settings.
This thread has very helpful and insightful comments. Thankyou.
In return i can say, that all those, that think, OVERSCAN
, is not adjustable on this tv, the PZ80, think again
I adjusted the overscan and position of my screen through the service menu, via controls labeled as:
Now with the overscan off, i can view a much larger broadcast image on SD,(looks anamorphic) it is a cleaner signal to my view, and fits the panel on all pixels, no junk or fuzzy kinks in the top or bottom of the picture. As long as i leave the 'aspect ratio' on 'auto' (poss 'hd size' as mentioned in this thread ), then all is well and the panel adjusts when black bars are viewed on some channels.
