How To Remove the Red Tint on a 9G Kuro using a Harmony Remote

I was just testing it because I saw someone else mention something about it. But yeah SUS does work too.

I would think SUS would be a better option? Since the ABL is set for the overall brightness.
Thanks, I think ABL will give you more overall pop but I will play with SUS and see the difference. Isnt SUS mostly used by reset users? I rarely see tweakers utilize it.

You can find a bunch online for different models. Can’t find 600A. There’s a 141


Shouldn’t all 60” models operate the same?

Those manuals don’t say anything about voltages. Was look it at a 151 service manual and it had nothing about voltage levels. There must be different versions because I’ve seen one that listed minimum at max voltage levels.
I do not want to assume all 60" service manual are the same, hence I specifically ask for KRP-600A (or KRP-600P) service manual. Strangely, I cannot find it from internet, does anyone has a copy?

Well ABL is set to limit brightness because of power usage. So my thinking was SUS might be better since you wouldn't have to mess with that.

I'm fine with stock brightness though. It's more than enough. I only have 4200 hours on my kuro. I use power save 2 also.

You can do a search online yourself and check. I couldn't find any. That's why i gave you an alternative.

Agree its more than enough but Im still gonna check SUS out as I havent played around with that one. Yes I also use savemode 2 often unless im gaming or watching a movie. How do you have so low hours, I have 7400 on mine and thats considered a virgin, yours isnt even born yet lol. Is it an LX or KRP?

I mostly only watch blurays. Don't really do broadcast television so it isn't on multiple hours a day.

I have the U.S. Elite model 151. Which the equivalent would be the LX over here?

Yeah same here mate, if I watch broadcasts its because of footy mostly. Might be an LX im not sure...still 9G though and utterly superb.

How can I turn on service menu with this controller?
You push whichever button they programmed for service menu. I'm sure they will tell you which one it is when you get it. Or have you got it and you're having problems? You may have to press it when the TV is in off/standby mode.

Not sure how many people respond/follow this thread still but...

I just read every single post. It SEEMS like a tweak of the SAD and RSTP is a fairly easy/safe thing to do as long as you don't push it too far. Is this true?

I'm in the process of getting the hex code onto my Harmony remote, so I'm not sure of the current values or viewing hours yet. I just bought a used PDP-6020FD here in Canada. Nice TV, but definitely has some red tint/elevated blacks.

There's been some discussion that the tweak doesn't work as well on 60"? Assuming the values are at stock, I was thinking about going conservative and seeing how it looked. Maybe RSTP 10 and SAD 105 or something?

Any ideas/discussion/help would be great.

Thank you!

Yeah going about 105 should be ok and I'd stick around 12 for rstp... it does work on a 60inch just that the 60inch kuros /krps wont go as dark as their smaller siblings the 50inch... also depends on the amount of hours the set has done..
Hope all works out ok..
Good luck..

Thanks for the reply.

Is there any known long term effects? I'm pretty sure I've read that it should be fine since we are still "within range."

put rstp at 1 job done,
This is what I was sort of afraid of. There seems to be differing opinions.

So just RSTP to 1 and don't change SAD?

Doesn't that not leave wiggle room to change it down again when/if the red tint returns?

Thanks for the reply.

You can lower sad ... try it at 1 for rstp.. wont damage the TV can always change it.. had that on a previous krp500 but my 600 only had 9000 hrs if that so whatever I did didn't see much difference as it was a relatively young panel ..
