    Well, I just got my TV hooked up and what happens?  Apparently my 14 year old was paying close attention when I went into service mode to disable the red push.

    I got out of the shower a while ago only to find him playing around in it!  I asked him what he messed with and he said just RDRV, RCUT, GDRV, GCUT, BDRV, and BCUT.  I guess he watched his friend from school messing with his a while back and thought he could get it looking good while I was in the shower!

    Anyway, here's the situation.  Generally, I doesn't look too bad.  The only apparent problem is that the yellows are a little greenish and reds are slightly pinkish.  For a Simpsons fan such as myself, this will not do!  How do I remedy this?  What variables should I increase and what should I decrease? 

    While I'm at it, could someone explain, or point me to an explaination of exactly what adjustments to the xDRV and xCUT variables do?  If I can understand exactly how they work, I think I have a better chance at ironing this thing out.

    I was thinking I could get the Avia DVD from Walmart DVD rentals, but if I don't know exactly how the variables work, then I'm not sure how much help it would be.

    No wonder I'm almost bald!

    Perhaps the values themselves might help:

    RDRV=85
    GDRV=40
    BDRV=60

    RCUT=83
    GCUT=36
    BCUT=50

    That's where he put them.  Is there anything obviously wrong with those proportions?  If anyone can help... PLEASE!

    Mine are set at

    RDRV=64
    GDRV=43
    BDRV=58

    RCUT=120 (that seems high but that's what it is)
    GCUT=67
    BCUT=62

    Here is a link to generic service menu info with some setup instructions
    http://myweb.accessus.net/~090/sonyadj.html#list

    a google search for servicemanuallite will get you excerpts from an older manual with more info.

    Hope that makes Homer more lifelike.

    Thanks Kirk, looks like a good starting point.  I'll let you know in a few minutes how it turns out.

    Okay, it looks 10X better now.

    The reds are now fairly intense, but the skin tones seem good.  The yellows still seem ever so slightly green to me, but that might be because I'm so used to the extra red making them look orangy.

    Now that I have these values recorded, I can make minute adjustments from here.  Are the Avia DVDs for pros, BTW?

    These values likely will vary from set to set to account for each picture tube, so your lost settings were likely different.

    Something you might try - when in service menu on the VP1 section - switch TV/Video to check the video1-4 inputs. Some of the data items in here have a different value for each input. Your original values might still be set there on a different input. When I got my set, SBRT was set lower in video4, and I could change the value just for that input. The *CUT and *DRV values are the same for each input on my set.
