AVForums, and LG, in no way endorse, or approve this kind of adjustment, which will of course nullify any and all warranty on your tv.
And also, AVForums, and LG in no way guarantee a fix/improvement, or personal safety, when removing the rear of the television, and indeed try to manipulate the internals when on, and will not, and cannot be held responsible, if and when things go wrong.
Thought Id bring to attention something that was started while back on the German site.
Poti tuning of the LG-PK series - the right way to Black

Ive started a similar thread over at avsforum.com LG Plasma Panel tweaks for better blacks. - AVS Forum which has gained in popularity, and a lot of good input and feedback.
LG Plasma Panel tweaks for better blacks. - AVS Forum
I personally believe its something that LG should take a serious look at if they wish to be a contender for the best plasma.
First weve achieved trouble free deep blacks, in some instances rivaling Panasonics top offerings .003/.004 mll and the other benefit is a reduction/elimination in IR, the two things holding LG back from top status.
Why bother, because IMHO LG offers one of the best plasmas in overall picture and color fidelity. The tweaking to lower the MLL has produced stunning results while maintaining all of LGs strong points.
As I mentioned recently over at avsforum, its like adding a sub to an all ready excellent sounds system, deeper base.. deeper blacks.
If a few tweakers can obtain incredible results with the black levels with a few twists of the available pots I'm sure LG should be able to do one better.
We have discussed the fact that LG may have adjusted their sets for trouble free operation as apposed to optimum blacks, but the potential is already there and most likely needs just a little encouragement.
