I would like to know how to change the standalone colour and sharpness settings for Vivid in the service mode. Also if possible I would like to know how to get a Warm colour temperature for the overall picture in Vivid mode because at the moment all I can use is Neutral or Cool. I have a European model and am in the UK.
I am currently only able to use Warm and adjust the standalone colour settings in Custom and unfortunately in Custom mode the blacks are just not black enough (regardless of the brightness etc); In Vivid, while details are lost, the blacks are much better overall. The colour saturation and sharpness however are configured too high.

for LCD-TV's in general there are a lot of register settings for white balance and backlight.
(By the way: for the new KDL-xxS2000 / V2000 (WAX2-chassis) based series there are much more register settings....)
Some customers are not satisfied with the 'Standard' settings (Live, Film) and the 'reset' values in 'Personal' mode.
There is a new version of the system firmware which also require an accompanying dataset for the non-volatile memory contents. Before uploading the latter, the white-balance parameters of the current situation have to be stored (or noted down) to reload them after applying the new firmware and the new standard dataset which belongs to the new firmware release.
Do you know which version your main system firmware has? If it's v. 10.26b or above, your set is already upgraded to the new standard. This setting is what Sony approves as 'OK' for these sets.

You just talked to our resident expert! I'll tell you this. The service adjustments in these sets are intended for factory adjustment, not field adjustment. If a tech has a specific problem, he would consult with a Sony service consultant that would advise him of the settings that need to be adjusted and the procedure for doing so.
