Well, I received my GGF1633 remote and was able to fix the blinking blue light issue with my 141FD. I do have another situation I would appreciate your advice with. Within the manual for another Pioneer display, it says the blinking blue light happens "After the replacement of the Assys (Procedures in Factory Mode)". For the fix, step 1 is listed as:
1. Digital Video Assy: Transfer of backup data...
My question is, what exactly is the Assy? I'm concerned that something needed to be replaced with the display, especially since I've bought it open item even though it is relatively new. Why would this need to be replaced?
To add to my dilemma, I was at Best Buy earlier today looking for a home theatre system to pair with my display. To my surpise, I see that they have the 151FD on sale brand new for $400 more than what I purchased my 141FD for. Now I'm contemplating returning the 141FD for a new 151FD for the piece of mind of knowing the display's history. I am still within my return period. I simply don't want to go through the hassle of lugging this hefty monitor back to Best Buy if it's not worth it. I'd have to rent a truck, etc. In order for me to make this decision I need more information about the possible problems I'm having with my 141FD, hence the question about the Assys.
Another question: I had bought the Sony XBR8 and the 141FD and compared them side by side for a week watching regular HD television. I believe the the picture quality of the 141FD to be superior in terms of detail. I am upset with the brightness of the set. However, turning up the brightness of the set ruins the picture quality. Whites look dim and dirty, even on the Standard power mode. Movies look fantastic but sports and television shows look way too dim, especially considering the amount of money spent on these displays. I would be upset if the answer to this is to have it ISF calibrated or to use ControlCAL, simply because this means more money.
So please, would someone explain to me what the Assys is and when/why it would need to be replaced? Do you think it's worth $400 more to get a new 151FD given the unknown history of my display? How can I fix the brightness issue on my own?
Thanks for your responses.
