Gateway 42' EDTV Calibration Settings

352 Views 5 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  sdeb_net
Anyone out there that has the Gateway 42' ED that can tell me their Calibration settings for 6500D? I changed mine a long time ago and picture has been degraded every since. I know copying someone elses won't make mine perfect but I'm hoping it will get me closer to where I need to be to see a decent picture. I tryed to contact gateway about the changes I had made in the manufacturers menu and they act like they don't even know the menu exist on the set. Also wish there was a default button to push, but no no.. once tampered with thats it for this set........

Please though anyone out there with this set please post your settings...

AVI-CT 6500

RGB-CT 6500

DVI-CT 6500

To get to service menu

hold left arrow for 6 secs

hold right arrow for 6 secs

hold fav. set for 6 secs.

then use fav. set to scroll through settings..

thanks and any other info appreciated...

all I tampered with is the BIAS AND GAIN, and now having hard time getting decent picture back!!

Here are the calibration settings from my Gateway 42" EDTV (non-Ultrabright)



Gain R=42 G=3B B=37



Gain R=50 G=5B B=5A

Bias R=94 G=7C B=84


Gain R=5D G=5D B=52

Bias R=FF G=00 B=FE

Hope this helps.

BTW, there is a X=313 Y=329 value shown - what does that do ? How do you actually change the above values ?

Is there a set of commands that allow you to see how many hours the unit has been under operation, firmware, etc.

Also, my 4:3 picture is not perfectly centered on the 16:9 screen in Component. Is there any way to adjust the centering ?
