But man, with the tweak, it is like watching a brand new TV. The contrast and black levels are literally jaw dropping ( And I thought the TV was jaw dropping when I bought it 7 years ago ).
I just checked my 101 with 3900 hours , RSTP 001
S1 = 127
S3=117
S4=138
SAD=073
I used the WOW disc to check for any glow on an all black input , no glow at all on full black screen , none ,checked for artifacts on Monsters Inc. Door scene ,none ,I found the sweet spot on this panel , I also have a 101 with 800 hours that took to tweaking better than this panel , the lower hours may be the difference .

I can attest to this. My 101fd (with 750 hours at the time) tweaked like a champ until I idiotically reset it. After reset, best I could get it at with no artifacts was around stock level.

I think this is probably true as well. My 500m has about 1000-1500 hours on it ( I will double check when I do a full recalibration ) and I was able to tweak down to

RSTP 01
S1 - 98
S3 - 88
S4 - 109

I could probably go down even further if I wanted to push it a bit further but honestly, the blacks and black enough that I can never tell the difference between the bezel and blacks even on a full black screen.

Pio 5080HD 8G, about to turn 26k hours.

No red tint, hasn't had any service menu adjustments or repairs, still working great.

Hooked up the laptop today.

1736 hours since my last reset. As I said before no red tint return on my 500M. I lowered RSTP from 12 to 1. Even though the black levels are great being a tech nerd I had to tweak a bit. I'll know if it made things even better once I can go full lights out.

The television screen is the retina of the mind's eye.

Can you tell me what other adjustments you've made? I've had to reset my 500M about 4 - 5 times since December 2013, due to the red tint returning. Thanks.

Hi,

I initially followed the reset guide posted here on avs a while back. I reset the panel twice. The red tint was gone after the first reset. I think I reset twice because I wanted a fresh start since I think I may have screwed up the first reset.
