    I just stumbled upon this amazing tweak in the service menu, the manual says it is "AKB Mode" whatever that is. Anyhow, it's in the AXIS menu under AKBM. The default is 0, but when I set it to 1 my colors became warm and natural and the whole picture lost the bright blue tinge. Quite amazing imo. I googled it and didn't find any other mention of it in any "tweaks" websites or forum pages.

    p.s. right beside it is AKBP [AKB Pulse Height says the manual] which seems to effect black levels.

    You are playing with the beam current. Not recommended.

    found this description on another page

    Auto Color Balance (also called Auto Kine Bias, AKB): Resets individual picture tube guns (Red, Green, Blue) to maintain consistent overall picture quality for the life of the tube.

    dunno what that means, all i know is setting this setting to 1 [default was at 0] made the greatest improvement i have ever seen one single setting do

    of course anyone reading any of this, please take note of your original settings. write them down, copy them to a file even. save it, trust me. having said that, these are some nice tweaks i'm finding.
