Each persons set is a bit different along with each source being different. Someone could have the exact same set, exact same DVD player, and exact same cables, but have completely different settings.

But I have a table with all of the settings and what they do, so you can judge for yourself using a calibration DVD.

Just post your e-mail and I'll get it to ya.

ok, total newbie when it comes to service menus.

when i check the 16:9 pattern, i can see that the whole picture is shifted to the left a little (some of the pattern gets cut off on the left).

i'd like to shift it all to the right.

i have the the sony 34hs420. oddly, it has a vertical adjustment and tilt adjustment in the menu.

i looked at the service menu thread for the XBR model... am i supposed to press the sequence of buttons? simultaneously? is the process the same for the 420?

how do you get into the service menu?

I am interested in getting a copy of the Service Menu also. I just bought the KV-34HS510 two weeks ago and notice convergence problems on the top right and bottom left side of the screen. I would like to adjust this problem without shipping this two hundred pound TV back to Sony.

Thanks, Ken

KayPen, please send me the service menu spreadsheet list . I have a 34hs510.

Maybe I can figure out how to diminish the "black crush" I see on lots of scenes. Also ...is there an "service menu" settings for the audio bass and treble? The regular menu audio settings don't seem to make much difference at all. I have a bass rumble occasionally that I want to get rid of.

Thanks.... lfe73@yahoo.com

I purchased a KV-36XBR800 last year..... I had heard about a problem on the 1080i setting having a 'white band' moving across the picture... Until now I didn't have a HD source, but now that I do, sure enough... there's the problem...
I have read about a fix, but do not know how to use the service menu... Please send me your table, and also info on how to use the service menu (what keys for navigating, etc....)
Thanks!
