I think a lot of people are doing the same mistake as I am because the instructions people give are vague on what you do after you set your white point..
This is what I did to enter the service menu with which you can change white point:
1. Power Off
4. Volume +
5. Power On
A ugly green and black menu should be in the middle/right of the tv, from here:
4. Enter (middle of the cirlce navigator, press crosshair button)
5. Enter (middle of the cirlce navigator, press crosshair button)
Now here is where you enter the white point setting with numbers 00-10 (if you want 5 it would be 05, if you want 7 it would be 07, if you want 0 it would be 00) sorry for so many examples but at first I would put just 5 or 7.. has to be 2 digits no matter what.
After you input your white point setting:
2. Your screen turns white.. its normal dont panic
(Do not worry what setting you input, you have full controll.. Hit Return to go back to the white point setting menu to try again... Go off the white screen to judge what you want)
After being happy with your pick:
4. Then power off
5. Wait 20 seconds then turn power on
There you go... A long, winded instruction on how to set the white point... Sorry if this has been posted 100 times but it was unclear to me when I searched.
I realize this was discussed last month but I'm only now looking into this. I have scheduled a local video calibrator to tune my set this Friday and would like to give him accurate instructions on how to access this menu and its settings.
The problem is that this process doesn't work for me - nothing happens. I take it that one starts with the TV turned off
or should I begin this process with the set turned on
? Incidentally, there are no separate Power ON or OFF buttons only a toggle switch. Do you hit the toggle once, twice?
Step 3 - I presume is to hit the number 5. Also, Step 4 has you hit the Volume + button or should you press and hold?
I'm sorry if these seem simple questions but it does seem odd that I get no response whatsoever. Has anyone else had these issues or did I get the process wrong?
A little more clarification concerning these steps would be greatly appreciated.
