Hi mate, good to hear other Aussies about enjoying this TV.
When I say type I mean the type code which is in the service menu.
Now, if I could get you to do the following, you would be a life saver as I'm sure my picture is not quite what it should be as I can't remember what type code I should have set it to (when I first went into the menu I accidently changed it, but I thought the remote simply wasn't being picked up so I pressed the button 1 to 3 times before anything happened (this option has incredible lag), so I have no idea where it started....).
Take pictures on your phone of every image setting, as this may reset your settings, and I don't want you to lose those if you happen to be kind enough to bother doing this form me.
Jump into the service menu.
The first thing you'll see is the "Option" menu selected, and to the right will be a box which has three groups of codes, with 25 different parameters and model designations for the set listed in total.
The first line of the 3rd group (12th from the bottom) it shows this
I just don't know if this is correct or not.
The line underneath says "Model: PS51D7000" - hacked and proud of it.
If, after taking a picture or writing down all of your on screen menu and picture options, you could confirm what your numbers here are, I would be forever in your debt; it's driving me absolute nuts not knowing what this code is meant to be...
