Can you tell me a little more about what each adjustment does? Do all 4 affect MLL? Any way to translate that manual? Electronic form or paper?
All the documentation is available in U.S. english
This is the complete LG plasma Panel Alignment Book (quick reference), latest version (03/31/2011): http://126.96.36.199/contents/Displa...t_Handbook.pdf
LG U.S. got the explanations from the complete Training Manuals of many plasma models, and they have arranged that book. Read it carefully before start to do something. If you have never done such things before, it is better to have a look for an expert TV tech friend. The right way to arrange the tuning work, is to use a big mirror. Put the TV screen in front of the mirror and look at the mirror during tuning. Use only full plastic screwdrivers (easy available and very cheap) and remember that there could be high voltages on some circuits, so be careful. It is like to work on tube amps, you know? Only a bit more difficult because you are working on big screens, and that's the reason why you need to use a mirror (for safety reasons, at first).
For many plasma models, complete informations and training manuals (very useful) are also available. On this page there is the list: http://188.8.131.52/SubPages/Directview_PDP.htm
clic on the model you are interesting for, and on the left of the new page you will find the docs available for download. There is even the new 50PZ950 and PV450 models, as well as the PK950 and 750.
With such informations available, I think LG plasma are well worth a look. I'm going to buy a 60PK980 (same of 60PK950) during the next days. Now it has a very good price in my Country (1170 euro including shipping) and it is the right time to buy it. I'm not interesting in the actual 3D stuff.
