If you use the brightness control of your player to quickly raise the brightness to the point it gets bright, and your volrstp is not correctly, you will see a reddish lag staying behind. You will also see that the buildup of the screen is 'slower' in some area's, basically the areas where the reddish tint is... you should be able to fix this by raising volrstp and 'testing' it with raising and lowering brightness.

The purple sparkles i only see in real material, not in any testpattern. I'm using a scene from House' last episode S08E08, basically the first minute. It's a scene in a dark court room where the camera switches between people, and when it does, purple sparkles will stay behind. Again, if the sparkles are gone, so is the reddish tint.

You will find that you have to raise volrstp quite a bit to get things perfect... mine was 27 before the pulse reset, and is now at 72.

All your points are correct.

My set exhibited a lagging green when going from a bright to black screen. Easily corrected by increasing VOL RST P.

Also, I have followed the service manual in terms of setting the VOL Offset value and can say that increasing the value will also exhibit a worsening lag on the green colour on my set.

However, going the other way resulted in better results without any sparkles (my set).Therefore, as stated in the service manual if there are no abnormalities it would be to set the VOL Offset back to the original value.

It is important to show real video and observe for abnormalities!

I think my set looks awesome! Just like new... WOOO HOOO!

Also, don't forget to adjust white balance. It is slightly off.

There has been a lot going on here recently! Anyone was able to successfully get rid of the reddish glow/tint just by adjusting a certain voltage setting instead of resetting the entire thing (pulse/hours)?

It just seems safer to tweak a certain voltage setting and then return it back to what it was if things went wrong.

that's what i did on my 8g....i just took vol rst down
post #545 of 2557
In my situation I had to raise the VOL SUS to get rid of the purple sparkles. My RST P had to be raised to get rid of the black crush after reset. I have the PRO 101FD. Im currently at:

VOL SUS 152
RST P 072

Picture quality is nothing short of spectacular at this time. Black level is perfect.

The most effective adjustment has been VOL RST P.

I did the workflow too and everything was perfect, no adjustments.

There does not seem to be enough scope to adjust VOL RST P without reset. Some users report a VOL RST P of 001 before reset, so there is no scope to adjust down.

Agree with picture quality, I think it's better than when it was new. It looks like someone removed the glass from the front!

jowicrt, I'm bit confused by your posts. You mention sparkles being caused by changes in xpof- and xnof- settings and also that you have used the TV approx 4 hours a day but you have 9000+ hours. As you purchased the TV new in Feb 2009, it's more like 8 hours a day.

Your correct about the hours... my bad

Changing the xpof- and xnof etc settings had no effect on the purple sparkles nor the red tint in my case. It did however added white spikes into the mix.

So in the end i've only raised volrstp after resetting the pulse meter, from 27 to 72.

Sounds about right then. I am keeping an eye on my reset hour meter too in case there is a ramp up of voltage after the initial 150 - 200 hours. If the black levels increase at some point at least we have the scope to adjust RST P down.

I shall be trying your values for this as I don't have a colorimeter Looking at the X-Rite I1 at the moment

Interesting. These two observations both may describe the dischage delay problem of the green subpixel described in the chart in post #301.

Interesting indeed xrox. So what you are saying is that the green lag effect seems to suggest that the voltage required to reset the green cells is higher than the voltage required to reset the red and blue ones, as demonstrated in the diagram. Perhaps the number of accumulated hours increases this gap also?

Yes. At the factory they adjust the phosphor and CEL layers to compensate for this difference and maybe they screwed this up. When the voltage required for discharge rises over time the lag starts to become noticeable to the viewer. I now classify this as 'educated speculation' rather than just 'pure speculation' LOL

So it appears that perhaps to much CEL is placed on the red phosphor on the red tint affected screens. What does CEL stand for?

Or too little on the green. CEL - crystal emissive layer (MgO crystals)

stroud,

Yeah it does look like the front glass is gone. Especially when watching in a pitch black room. There's a scene in the 2008 Kuro Demo Bluray that shows a small rose in the middle of the screen with a black background. In a pitch black room all I see is a rose floating on the tv. With ANY content on the screen the blacks dissapear. It never did that before prior to reset because of the red tint.

Hello,

I do not have yet make of reset of the meters hours and pulse but I lowered my VOL RST P up to 5 (of origin 32) and I have the impression that the red teint persists.
I put my values of origin and my kuro :

vol sus 128
vol offset 113
vol rst p 032
vol xpofs1 085
vol xpofs2 063
vol yknofs1 138
vol yknofs3 128
vol yknofs4 149
vol yknofsa 128

(KRP500A-6500Hours)

I too can see your red tint. How many hours do you have?
post #559 of 2557
Hello Stroud,

I have 6500 hours.
post #560 of 2557
Interesting, other users with similar hours have done the reset also.
post #561 of 2557
Do you advise me what ? Was your screen like mine before your reset ?
Is it necessary to disconnect the screen after having lowered the VOL rstp ?

My screen was similar to yours, it looks like good old red tint to me. It is not necessary to unplug TV after adjusting RST P. Did you try to adjust VOL SUS down?
post #563 of 2557
Yes I have fall up to 2. I put to you a front photograph with a RSTP of 32 and after a RSTP of 2
RSTP of 32



RSBP of 2

Yes I can just about see it in picture 2. Have you tried to lower VOLSUS?
post #565 of 2557
Did I lower only the Vol rstp to 2, I did not lower the VOL SUS not known, I believed that one was to only increase it?
Did you see the difference between the 2 pictures ?

Yes, it is almost gone in picture 2 but you are already out of room if you are already at 2. It is worth trying to lower VOL SUS IMHO.
post #567 of 2557
You're right by lowering only my VOL RST P 2, I managed to have a black screen. You, to lower the VOL SUS ?

I thought you still had red tint? I can see it in picture 2.
post #569 of 2557
I still have a red tint on image 2, that is why I have asked you if I decrease the VOL SUS it will disappear?

I don't know but that is what I would try.
