Also After using the Patterns posted here (namwly the 16x9 dot pattern it looks like the convergence is off in the lower right. What are the service menu options to fix these things.. I DO NOT want to mess with stuff just for the heck of it.. i want to fix only what i notice and leave the rest alone. I cant afford to screw this tv up. Also, does anyone know if sony's warrenty will cover In home, professional calibration? Thanks!
First you need to determine if it is all inputs that are shifted to the right...
As always - write down existing settings before changing.
1) If all - The global centering entry for all inputs is 2170D-2, 0, HCNT. This controls the "default" raster, or frame. that your TV is displaying the picture on. If by adjusting to the left you run out of sync, in the right hand side, adjust back to the original setting, and use the global 2170D-2, 1, HPOS setting instead.
2) If 480i - The entry is MID2, 0, DRHP.
3) If all others - The entry is MID33, 0, VDHP. You have to adjust this setting for all the inputs, different than 480i.
The convergence setting for the lower right is D-CONV, 4, RUBW.
No, Sony will not pay for a professional calibration.
