    Hi,

       I had to have the A and B boards replaced in my Sony KP57WS520 rear projection so of course the tech. had to re-do the convergence on the set.  Unfortunately, he did a crappy job (especially with geometry) and also did not know how to save his convergence to the flash focus button - thus, I can't use it anymore. 
        Since then, I had to re-do the convergence, in all modes, myself in order to straighten out the geometry and fix the convergence issues he left.  Now, I know HOW to perform convergence in the service menu and save the data in all modes to the EPROM (via pressing "Muting" and then pressing "ENT" while in the service menu) but I don't know how to save this data to the flash focus so I can use the button again. 
        Since the tech. didn't know how to do it either, I was wondering if anyone here knows how?  Do I simply push the flash focus button while in the service menu to register the settings to it, and if so, do i do it for EACH mode (wide, zoom, etc.) or just do it once?  I don't use flash focus that often, but it would be nice to be able to use it without it screwing up MY convergence and making me unplug the set or reset the TV to get my convergence back from memory.  At the moment, I have to keep going into the service menu to make quick adjustments and save them, but it would be nice to just press flash focus at times.  Thanks.

    Based on the manual, it appears that all you have to do is press the FLASH FOCUS button after you have saved the PJE group settings.  You should get the message CALIBRATION OK.

    jehill,


       Sorry to bother you, but I was wondering if the manual also has any group or individual setting listed that controls focus? There is a slight focus/ghosting issue (it's not convergence related, just a slight focus issue) that has been present with this set since day one, and I was just wondering if the manual happened to mention anything about any settings associated with focus.   Thanks again.

    I'm not sure, but I believe that the focus adjustment is usually an internal adjustment pot.  Your best bet is to obtain a copy of the service manual and study it yourself.  Send x2bc4 a private message (PM).  Go to the bottom of the left column and click Inbox.  Click SEND.  Enter x2bc4 for To:  Tell him what you need and include your e-mail address.
