Very sorry if this has been asked before, but I can't find it if it has.
I'm wondering how Sony labels a certain item in the Service menu.
I have a vertical scroll problem with 50Hz (60 Hz is OK). Now, according to the manual, the TV can also cope with 50Hz, but is takes a few attempts (changing video source back and forth a few times) to lock on to the signal. This is a real bummer for me as I've managed to get round the colour issues associated with PAL/NTSC, only to be confronted with this annoying scroll problem. (First TV I've ever had that can't at least give me a steady B&W image).
I've read about "Vertical Pull-in" being an option to look out for in the service menu, but it's not there. There IS a "Vertical Scroll" option, but it doesn't seem to help.
Are there any other options I might be able to look out for in the Service menu that might be worth having a go at? I've tried most things that seem to have a reference to anything "vertical". Is it possible I need to change two or more things, and that only changing on item will not have the necessary effect on its own?
So to sum up, I'm looking for something that can improve vertical lock with 50Hz (in case the above is not clear, LOL).
Never mind. I got it (sorry, didn't give you much time to reply, LOL).
I changed the option FORF (item 004 in SYNC on my TV) to 000 (default was 001). This option is labelled "Forced Field Frequency". It did sound like the sort of thing that might be stopping the TV from changing to 50Hz when required.
I can't even begin to explain how happy this has made me
As well as watching all my PAL DVDs, I can now play all my PAL Playstation games. Woohoo!
It DOES kinda suck in my opinion that I could only get the 50Hz signal working by entering the service menu (not to mention a week of research), thus voiding the warranty, when it says in the manual that that TV can handle that type of signal.
Does that stike anyone else as crap work from Sony?
