SONY KDL-40D3100-KDL-46D3100 

SELF DIAGNOSTICS 
The identification of errors within the WAX3F chassis is triggered in one of two ways :- 1: Busy or 2: Device failure to respond to IIC. In the event of one of these situations arising the software will first try to release the bus if busy (Failure to do so will report with a continuous flashing LED) and then communicate with each device in turn to establish if a device is faulty. If a device is found to be faulty the relevant device number will be displayed through the LED (Series of flashes which must be counted).

Y signal calibration1 adjustment for terrestrial analog.
1. Input PAL colour bar 75%Y, 75%C via terrestrial input.
2. Send ECS_ADJUST_TCD3_CONT_RF command.
3. Read the value of S-REG_APL_LUMA via ECS. Confirming that the value is within spec of the table below.
S-REG_APL_LUMA >  SREG_TARGET_Y_RF±2
C signal calibration1 adjustment for terrestrial analog.
1. Send ECS_ADJUST_TCD3_HUE_RF command.
2. Read SREG_AVE_VAL_B_AREA0 via ECS. (READ_AREA = 0).
3. Read SREG_AVE_VAL_B_AREA6 via ECS. (READ_AREA = 6).
4. Confirm that 8 bits of MSB of item number 2) and 3) are within spec of the table below.
SREG_AVE_VAL_B_AREA* difference > ±2
5. Read SREG_TCD3_SATURATION via ECS.
6. Restore the original value. SREG_NR = 4 (Auto).
7. Send ECS command ADJUST_LEVEL_SETTING_CLR
Gamma Adjustment
Note: Before Gamma adjustment can begin the set needs 20 minutes aging with an ambient temperature between 22 to 28 degrees centigrade.
Preparation before Gamma Adjustment
1. Set SREG_BL_MANU<2> = 1.
2. Set SREG_MUTE_DISPLAY = 0.
3. Set SREG_BL_GAIN = 255.
4. Send ECS command OSD_OFF.
5. Send ECS command CSC_BYPASS_INIT_SET.
6. Wait for successful retrieval.
7. Set SREG_BRIGHT = 100(max).
8. Set SREG_ECO_MODE = 0(Standard).
9. Set SREG_TEST_G_LEVEL = 255.
10. Set SREG_GAMMA_EN<6> = 0(OFF).
11. Measure ‘maximum brightness’.
12. Confirm ‘maximum brightness’ dataover 410cd/m^2.
If the brightness is lower than 410cd/m^2 consider the panel as no good
Set up mode for Gamma Adjustment
1. Set SREG_BRIGHT = 50.
2. Set SREG_GAMMA_EN<6> = 1 (On).
3. Set SREG_COL_MTRX_IDX_OFF = 4.
4. Set SREG_G_GAM_IDX_OFST = 15.
Set up Trident Internal SG and Brightness measurement
1. Set up SREG_TEST_G_LEVEL = 204.
2. Measure brightness A.
3. Set up SREG_TEST_G_LEVEL = 102.
4. Measure brightness B.
5. Set up SREG_MEASURE_GAM_01 = (brightness B/brightness A)*10000.
6. Send the ECS command: GAMMA_TBL_SEARCH_1.
7. Set up SREG_TEST_G_LEVEL = 153.
8. Measure brightness C.
9. Set up SREG_MEASURE_GAM_02 = (brightness C/brightness A)*10000.
10. Send the ECS command: GAMMA_TBL_SEARCH_02.
White Balance Adjustment
1. Set up SREG_COLOR_TEMP = 0 (Cool).
2. Set up SREG_TEST_G_LEVEL = 204 (80 IRE).
3. Adjust SREG_WB_GAM_R(B)05 chroma values so that they are within tolerance in the table below.
40" > U0.1915 > V0.4322  > TOLERENCE <0.0008
46" U0.1907 > V0.4312 > TOLERENCE <0.0008
5. Set up SREG_TEST_G_LEVEL = 128 (50 IRE).
6. Adjust SREG_WB_GAM_R(B)04 chroma values so that they are within tolerance in the table below.
40" U 0.1912 > V0.4316 > TOLERENCE 0.0008->0.0014
46" U 0.1905 > V 0.4316  > TOLERNCE 0.0008 ->0.0014
11. The value of WB_GAM_R(B)01 is determined by the following conditions.
a).For 40 inch models
# WB_GAM_R01 = WB_GAM_R02 - (WB_GAM_R03 - WB_GAM_R02)
# WB_GAM_B01 = WB_GAM_B02 + {(WB_GAM_B03 -WB_GAM_B02)}/2
a).For 46 inch models
# WB_GAM_R01 = WB_GAM_R02 - (WB_GAM_R03 - WB_GAM_R02) x 2
# WB_GAM_B01 = WB_GAM_B02 - (WB_GAM_B03 -WB_GAM_B02)
12. The value of WB_GAM_R(B)06, WB_GAM_R(B)07 is determined by the following conditions.
a).For 40 inch models
# WB_GAM_R06 = WB_GAM_R05 + {(WB_GAM_R04 - WB_GAM_R05)} / 2
# WB_GAM_B06 = WB_GAM_B05 - {(WB_GAM_B04 - WB_GAM_B05)} / 2
# WB_GAM_R07 = WB_GAM_R04
# WB_GAM_B07 = WB_GAM_B05 - (WB_GAM_B04 - WB_GAM_B05)
a).For 46 inch models
# WB_GAM_R06 = WB_GAM_R05 - {(WB_GAM_R04 - WB_GAM_R05)} / 2
# WB_GAM_B06 = WB_GAM_B05
# WB_GAM_R07 = WB_GAM_R05 - (WB_GAM_B04 - WB_GAM_B05)
# WB_GAM_B07 = WB_GAM_B05 - (WB_GAM_B04 - WB_GAM_B05)
13. Send ECS command: WB_SAVE.
