    Hello

    I promised a mate i'd have a go at calibrating his ae300 . I need access to the RGB bias and gain controls usually found in the service menu. I've had a look at the popular service menu entry procedure people use to fix vertical banding but this menu from what I can gather doesn't seem to offer the RGB bias and gain controls ( might be called cut-off and drive or even RGBbrightness and contrast or high and low).

    Thanks in advance.

    Keith,

    Afaik access to RGB Gain and Bias is via proprietary software and a connector which has to be plugged into the innards of the projector - this is the case on the AE100 (the instructions for the menus is in the AE100 service manual)and I'm virtually certain the same is the case with the AE300 - I can recall having seen the same stuff in the AE300's service manual, but haven't kept a copy to confirm right now.

    If you can locate an AE300 service manual, I think it will confirm the above.

    Regards,

    S.

    yep I suspected this. Although you can access the R and B bias and gain using dvi ( I think). This could be enough to calibrate it with a filter in place ( use contrast to set green to below clip and then ramp back on the red and blue shoudl give the desired effect. Useless as no-one uses dvi with this projector of course!
