Although a little out of focus, I've circled the white overscan adjustment knobs and the sky blue button.

Yes, that is the front left of the set. See my other pic with a general pic of the front with the service panel removed.

Mike, I've sent you a PM with the links to the pictures I posted.

I'ld say hitting service-level convergence, centering the screen, geometry, overscan, and possibly electronic / mechanical focus would be excellent!

I seem to be learning just enough to be dangerous... which is fun! Do I see a difference? I'ld like to think so, but to be honest, I'm not positive... and I'm not really a videophile. However, I've yet to do a mechanical focus, fix the geometry, or set greyscale.

The Hitachi seemed pretty good out of the box... magic focus alone almost made my convergence grid perfect... the electronic focus seemed spot on.. so, maybe that is why I can't tell as significant a difference.

Thanks for the PM.

It all depends on where your comming from. If your set is 90% you'll notice a little, if it's 50% starting out you'll notice alot.

Tweaking atleast makes all sets 100% and maximizes picture quality.

Sad to say:( that RPTV out of the box quality is generally not very good.

Perhaps someone can start to search and organize all these old Hitachi tweaks threads and put them into a main index?

Guys - The overscan adjusement pots are self explanatory, but what does the "sky blue" button do?

The little blue button resets your convergence or gets you into the service convergence screen.

"Sad to say that RPTV out of the box quality is generally not very good."

But really, isn't openning the back and service panel overscan adjustments etc, a bit over-kill? I can probably achieve 90% just by the feel via simple sharpness, color, contrast asjustments. Whereas you would have to be obsessed a little to open the back up and adjust overscan. If there really is a problem, there is always the warranty. Let the technician get his hands dirty.

If Hitachi had meant for us to adjust this, then they would have placed the knobs for overscan OUTSIDE of the chassis and they would have provided a section in the manual for how to use it.

As for Hitachi in general, there's this nifty grid mode for color convergence adjustments, in addition to the normal color, contrast etc controls.

What more can you ask for?? I don't know about you but if the PQ out of the box is so crap as you generally imply, then how would Hitachi have any shred of a reputation for making excellent sets?? The average user expects nothing less that 80% PQ out of the box. Who wants to fuss around
(videophiles being the exception. :)

Hitachi is not alone. All other MFG have poor out of box quality as well.

Hitachi is actually better than most other brands.

I was totally satisfied with my Hitachi straight out of the box...the tv's been on damn near 18 hours a day and no problems. I'd have had my set professionally calibrated by now but I cannot find a worthy calibrator in my area.
