I'm fortunate I haven't bricked mine.Even though I don't have a meter it seems the gains have almost all the effect on the images.This is on an e450 plasma.

Samsung service menu bias?

On a plasma Can you set all the bias too 128 in the service menu and in the regular menu 25(in the middle),and just use the gains too adjust grayscale? I've read of people doing this.
