White balance adjustment
Adjustment Procedure
1) Using the remote control, set the LCD TV to adjustment mode.
2) Measure Max brightness (Lmax).
3) Calculate min. brightness (Lmin)=Lmax/1000.
4) Measure Point 2 brightness (Lhigh).
5) Set the reference value R,G,B of Point 2 (R2)=3664 x (229/P2) where P2=255 x [(Lhigh-Lmin)/(Lmax-Lmin)]1/2.2
6) Set the specified gradation for point 2, fix the most faint colour to get reference value, adjust others 2 colour to minus adjustment for reference value of point 2.
7) Measure Point 1 brightness (Llow).
8) Set the reference value R,G,B of Point 1 (Ref.1)=608 x (38/P1) where P1=255 x [(Llow-Lmin)/(Lmax-Lmin)]1/2.2
9) Set the specified gradation for point 1. Set G of point 1 to the default value [(Ref.1 x G value of point 2/Ref.2), with fractions rounded] and adjust RB to the reference value of point 1.10)Set the G of point Max. to the default value (4080 x G value of point 2/Ref.2). Set the R,B Max. value [Gmax-G value of point 2 + (R,B value of pint 2)].
11)Adjusted value is writing at [command] MSET0003.
12)Shut down the AC power.

USB Clone (Smart Loader)
1. Description
The Smart Loader is a function implemented in the service software to easily replicate the user settings of one TV into another. These settings include (but not restricted to): picture and audio, turning set-up, language and country selection, PIN, child locked programs etc.
Factory adjustments are not copied as they are different for every TV. The Smart Loader makes possible the user data to be stored in a memory device connected to the USB terminal of the TV that is used as reference and later load those data into other TVs by using their respective USB terminal.
2. How it works
1. Enter USB clone menu (Smart Loader)
i) Press panel key [TV/VIDEO] and [VOL+] and AC on, it will go to password entry OSD
ii) Enter digit “369” then it will go to Smart Loader Menu
2. Smart Loader function

# To copy all related data from TV -> USB and put under a fixed filename “SHP_SMLD.bin” (8kB).
ii) SMLD Restore
# To restore the related data from USB -> TV.
iii) SMLD Store and Restore execution
# To execute SMLD Store or SMLD Restore, highlight at selected item and press Enter.
# When copying is in process, “WAIT” is displayed.
# After cloning process is done, “OK” is displayed.
If cloning process is not finished due to error (e.g. no pendrive detected), “NG” is displayed.
3. Exit USB Clone menu (Smart Loader)
i) To exit Smart Loader menu, plug off AC Cord.
How to start Public Mode
3 There are the following two ways to get the public mode setup screen displayed.
1) Press the “INPUT” and “VOL (+)” keys on the set at once and turn on the power.
2) Get the password input screen displayed.
