I believe I must have changed something because afterwards my PS3 (first generation / fat model) was no longer dispalying on my R60XBR1. Before messing with the service menu it worked, afterwards it didn't. I bought a slim PS3 and that one does work. I know, I know, I know you're going to say something is wrong on the fat PS3... please believe me, it isn't. The fat PS3 is happily working on my daughters cheapo Walmart 2010 LG LCD.
Another thing I noticed after messing around in there (although this I can not ascertain wasn't there before I went into the service menu) was a fluctuation in the poicture from a some sort of dithering in the image to no-dithering (back and forth in about 3-4 seconds interval).
Has anyone come across any of those 2 issues, and does anyone here know how I might go about fixing them?
Alternatively, is there a way to return to the service menu original factory presets? I think those changes are saved in a static memory (EPROM?), so I don't know if the standard factory reset will revert my changes.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
This is an interesting one.
You were probably in there to reset the lamp hour counter, which is a very straight forward procedure.
I used to experiment quite extensively within the service menu of my 50xbr1. There is a color decoding variation selector under the "PANEL" submenu that would cause similar image problems. However, did you actually tinker with any settings under "WEM"? I recall certain gamma parameters that would cause random dithering and color errors there as well.
The PS3 issue is bizarre. Regardless that you have the console functioning on another TV, I would do a video reset on the PS3. Unplug the xbr1 for at least 5 minutes before trying again. There is nothing that I can recall within the SM that can selectively disable a source device.
I don't believe that the factory reset does anything accept for clearing user menu settings + the channel list. Your stuck with any SM changes that were made.
The Sony has been collecting dust for quite some time now. I could fire it up again in order to precisely guide you if need be. Just give another shout out if help is still needed.
