Also, does anyone know what settings need to be changed to allow this set to sync properly to a PAL 576I signal via it's component inputs? (I know that the composite inputs also require color tweaks, but by using the component inputs my colors are fine -- it's just that the picture rolls.) I have located the NTSC/PAL/SECM/etc settings in the NVM under the WEM2/CCPM-11 menu, and can change the PAL option to a 1, but how do I get it to "write" back to the NVM? (ENTER doesn't work here). I several PAL discs, and my DVD changers are modified to output PAL as PAL, so I'd really like to get the set to sync...
And last, I'm noticing a blue/purple hue at the very bottom 1-inch of the screen, kinda like a light-source leak. (It's only noticeable on lighter colored screen content). Does this indicate a light-engine problem?
Thanks for any help, -Surgeon-

I suspect that paid SonyESI subscribers also have access to that site, but with another username and password. If you look at p-5 of the same service manual, the "Television system" is listed as "American TV standard, NTSC". This suggests that the same firmware is used for both the US/CAN models and the European models. If you can't save the PAL option as 1, I suspect that its because you don't have the hardware needed for it to be a valid setting.
