Happy New Year!
I'm from Australia and just updating my details in regards to the purchase of the PMCv1 for my TH-65PZ850A.
The black level rise was so bad, I could read the paper when it was on a black/blank screen from the amount of light the TV was emitting in a dark room!
As time went on and as the blacks rose, I was thinking to myself, the TV isn't the same since I bought it.
Prior to receiving this, the PMCv1, I did the reset a few times using an Arduino board and Mironto's guide, which works very well.
Upon seeing the automated process from Audiodane, I'd thought I'll give it a shot and purchase a unit.
Now, I'm glad I did.
I checked and prior to installing the PMCv1, I did the reset using Mironto's guide and straight after I installed the PMCv1 at the back, fits nicely inside the TV, as my cover for the service connector has a screw cap/lid. So you don't even see it.
Just the other day it did the reset, I switched the TV on and the power light on the TV went a solid green, but no picture at all. Which is what happens when using the Arduino board as well. Turned it off and then back on again and the TV works fine, with a great improvement in the black level.
It did the reset at around the 175 hour mark or so. I checked the hours via the Service Menu from when I installed it up until when it did the reset.
I am happy and the picture looks like a just bought a brand new TV!
In other words, it works and that is awesome!
Thanks Mironto and Audiodane!
