Adjustment Procedure
Driver Set-up

Item / Preparation
1. Input a white signal to plasma video input.
2. Set the picture controls as follows.
Picture menu: Vivid
Normal: Set
Aspect: Full
Caution
1. First perform Vsus adjustment.
2. Confirmation of Vscn voltage should be performed after confirmation of Vad adjustment.
When Vad=-180V, Voltage of Vscn is -35V ±4V.
Adjustments
Adjust driver section voltages referring the panel data on the panel data label.
Check or adjust the following voltages with the multimeter.

3. Connect Oscilloscope to TPSC1 (SC).
Check the voltage (T2) at 100μs period on the down slop.
T2 > TPSC1 (SC)  > VR16601 (SC)  > 210 V ± 10 V
White balance adjustment
Procedure
# Make sure the front panel to be used on the final set is fitted.
# Make sure a color signal is not being shown before adjustment.
# Put the color analyzer where there is little color variation.
1. Set the Picture menu to [vivid] and output the W/B pattern.
2. Check that the color temperature is [Cool].
3. Set to serviceman mode, WB-ADJ.
4. Set [R-CUT] [G-CUT] [B-CUT].
5. Attach the sensor of color analyzer to the center of highlight window.
6. Fix G drive at C0h and adjust [B-DRV] and [R-DRV] so x, y value of color analyzer become the [Color temperature High].
7. Increase RGB together so the maximum drive value in RGB becomes FC. That is, set [ALL DRIVE] to FC.
Execute adjustment again. When that, the maximum value of R/G/B DRV should be FC, and either R/G/B DRV should be FC.
8. Set color temperature to [Normal].
9. Set [R-CUT] [G-CUT] [B-CUT] .
10. Attach the sensor of color analyzer to the center of highlight window.
11. Fix G drive at C0h and adjust [B-DRV] and [R-DRV] so x, y value of color analyzer become the [Color temperature Mid].
12. Increase RGB together so the maximum drive value in RGB becomes FC. That is, set [ALL DRIVE] to FC.
Execute adjustment again. When that, the maximum value of R/G/B DRV should be FC, and either R/G/B DRV should be FC.
13. Set color temperature to [Warm].
14. Set [R-CUT] [G-CUT] [B-CUT].
15. Attach the sensor of color analyzer to the center of highlight window.
16. Fix G drive at C0h and adjust [B-DRV] and [R-DRV] so x, y value of color analyzer become the [Color temperature Low].
17. Increase RGB together so the maximum drive value in RGB becomes FC. That is, set [ALL DRIVE] to FC.
Execute adjustment again. When that, the maximum value of R/G/B DRV should be FC, and either R/G/B DRV should be FC.
18. Set color temperature to [Cool].
