    Hey Guys,

    A few technical questions about my KDF-60WF655:

    Does anyone have the full service data .pdf as described on page 30 of the service manual as follows:

    A complete set of the service data, Fixed and Adjustable, can be downloaded at:

    Only Sony authorized Service Technician can access this site. To request a complete list of the service data in PDF format please
    contact Nita Wardlaw at

    (Email Address will not display unless member has 100 posts or is a Premium Member, see the great benefits premium member have by clicking here)

    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,

    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.
