Note that when the items (W/B, Device Adjust) that can be adjusted in the SERVICE MODE are adjusted and stored in memory, they are saved in NVM and the factory default data will be lost. Be sure to perform “Save to memory” after entering and exiting the Gamma adjustment mode. If the values are changed in the Gamma adjustment mode and the original values cannot be restored, turn off the power to the unit and turn it on again. The UF data does not change even if the mode for Advanced Iris in Cinema Black Pro in Picture Adjust is changed without performing “Save to memory”. When “Save to memory” is performed at that time, the UF data of each Iris mode will be overwritten and lost.

V COM Adjustment
1. Input the XGA 60Hz signal in INPUT-A.
2. Proceed to the Panel Driver : 4/R VCOM adjustment screen of Device Adjust.
3. Adjust the value of R VCOM to minimize the flicker.
4. For Panel Driver : 5/G VCOM and Panel Driver : 6/
BVCOM, adjust the values of G VCOM and B VCOM to minimize the flicker in the same manner as step 3.
5. Save the adjusted values.
6. Set “Image Flip” to “V” or “HV”.
7. Enter the adjusted values for R/G/B above.
8. Save the adjusted values.
9. Set “Image Flip” to “OFF”.
IRIS Adjustment
(1) Enter XGA 60Hz and the full white 100IRE signal in INPUT-A.
(2) Set Other : 01/Iris Adj of Device Adjust to 1.
(3) Set the value of 02/Open Reg to 1023, and check the value of 04/Open Hall.
(4) Check the value of 04/Open Hall while lowering the value of 02/Open Reg.
(5) Check the value of 02/Open Reg when the value of 04/Open Hall is the value of (3) _15.
(6) Save the values of 02/Open Reg checked in (5).
(7) Measure the luminance at this time. [OFF luminance]
(8) Set the value of 03/Close Reg to that of Open Reg checked in (5).
(9) Check the luminance while decreasing the value of
03/Close Reg. Then, check the values of 03/Close Reg and 05/Close Hall when the luminance is 17% of [OFF luminance] (20% for AW10).
(10) Save the values of 03/Close Reg checked in (9).
(11) Set the value of 03/Close Reg to 0, and check the value of 05/Close Hall.
(12) When the difference in the value of 05/Close Hall between (9) and (11) is 21 or more, perform step
(16). When it is 20 or less, perform steps (13) to (16).
(13) Set the value of 03/Close Reg to the value of (10).
(14) Check the value of 05/Close Hall while raising the value of 03/Close Reg.
(15) Check the value of 03/Close Reg when the difference in the value of 05/Close Hall between (14) and (11) becomes 20, and save it.
(16) Return the value of 01/Iris Adj to 0, and perform Save to Memory.
