    Philips Service menu settings :

    Can anyone help me out with what exactly the settings in the Normal geometry menu do ? :

    V slope
    V. shift - moves picture up/down ?
    V. amplitude - resize picture up/down ?
    V S-Correction
    H. shift - moves picture left/right ?
    H. amplitude - resize picture left/right ?
    East/West Parabola
    Upper East/West corner
    Lower East/West corner
    East/West Trapezium
    Horizontal parallelogram
    Horizontal bow

    Thanks,
    Kim

    Ok, you'll have to bear with some of my character drawing attemtps at replicating a screen image, but here goes...

    This is your tilt control. i.e. if the image slopes up or down you'd use this to correct it


    Yes

    Yes


    Not sure what this would do.

    Yes


    Yes

    You'd use this if the vertical lines, when viewing a 4:3 image were

    (__)

    or

    )__(

    instead of

    l__l



    Would affect how far out or into the picture the corner curved (sort of like the parabola but for the top corners and bottom


    If your on screen image does this:


    /__\

    or

    \__/

    use this control to make it go

    l__l


    For if your screen does

    \__\

    or

    /__/


    to make it

    l__l

    (I think)


    I would think this is the same as your east/west parabola control, except for the top & bottom edges of the picture, rather than the left & right edges...

    Hope that helps, and remember, make notes of all your settings before making any changes!

    Thanks a lot - Your drawings are very helpfull :smashin:

    I have a 32PW9528+DVE arriving within a few days, so I want to be prepared for the work ahead in case geometry ect. needs a twist.

    I actually never owned a Philips TV before (always Sony models) but the last 3 weeks in shops + testing have convinced me to change side. I simply wasn't impressed by the lastest FQ85 model which appeared to have faults in the digital processing of the picture (quick movements made the picture appear torn for a split second).

    With new Philips set comming out next month introducing Pixel+ v2 it might seem unwise to buy now, but I liked the set and the PQ.

    But it require a quite good signal to shine - fortunately we have quite good digital broadcasts here in Denmark - but this requires a cablebox. Some shops used a crappy ariel which absolutely didn't made the set any justice.

    These are the settings which seem to work best :

    Contast : 55
    Brightness : 35
    Colour : 50
    Sharpness : 2
    Clolour Enhancement : Active
    Tint : Cool
    Digital Options : Movie Plus
    Dynamic Contrast : Off
    DNR : Off
    Active Control : Off

    Pehaps someone has better suggestions regarding the settings ?
