    It sounds like you are pressing the wrong button on the remote, if that comes up, exit the menu and start again.

    When you get to the end of the first menu press HOLD (I think you might be pressing one above it), you should then be on service menu 2.

    I wouldn't waste your time on the service menu's on the PV500.They are the worst I've ever seen with no screen adjust settings, the only useful thing IMO is the hours clocked up.

    ..and now you know why Gordon and Piers hate calibrating the thing! Nightmar to be honest. I did the DVE thing all day and the SM is a bloody difficult without expert help..mind you it is a telly not a display but still...!!

    Mal

    I been playing around with our Kids new pv500 and to be honest I cant tweak much at all. I know Gordy can but it takes time. Bt the picture is not even that good so I am well shocked! Well shocked i am with the washed out look on all 2k price point plasmas now having seen all of em worth seeing.

    Ouch.
