Hi everyone and happy holidays!
I wanted to try and adjust some settings for my 51HX83 and started to adjust some settings that I didn't need to. The settings are the RCUT, BCUT, GCUT, etc. (i.e. designer mode?)
Anyways, I want to set them back to the original settings again. Are there any sites that anyone knows about where I can get these original values for my set? Surfing around for the last few days hasn't given me much luck with my particular set.
I do have DVE and Avia if it helps me.
Any help is appreciated. I would like to avoid having someone come in and calibrate it if possible, but I just need the settings.
Be aware that each HDTV is unique and that there are no "original" settings. There are "factory" settings that are usually in the service manual, but each TV is tuned after that. Someone else' settings may get you in the "ballpark", but if you didn't write down your settings, you're SOL.
See the Digital Home FAQ "What you need to do to your new HDTV". (note the warnings in there about the service menu.)
Thanks for the info 57... but surely someone with a 51HX83 must have done what I didnt do, and record those settings before modifying them?
If anyone has, please let me know. The settings I've changed haven't messed it up terribly, but I notice it.
I'll be calling an ISF technician next week. :(
I'm not sure you understood what I said. Each TV has different settings. They don't go to the stores and into your house with identical settings because each TV is unique.
The components that go into TVs vary a lot so one TV may have a particular setting of "5" and another TV could have a setting of "9".
I'm not stopping people from posting their settings, but I want you to be aware that their (unchanged or recorded) settings are not the same as your settings were, so they may be similar or in the ballpark, but not the same.
Sometimes, for some settings, they're not even close. My HPOS setting was about 6 numbers off the factory (service manual) number for example...

Unfortunately ... sharing settings is like sharing the combination numbers of my lock with you because you lost your numbers. Maybe it helps ... and maybe it does more harm than good.
It's a useless exercise. :(
It's easier to help if we know the nature of the problems you are seeing.
I understand. Now that I know that these settings are specific to my set, I have recorded them. Getting these settings from someone else could make it worse, yes, but at least I can go back to what it is set to currently.
Thanks for the suggestions. DVDs look pretty bad so I think I will invest in hiring an ISF technician as soon as possible.
