    I got my Z2 on monday and basically all i have been doing is complaining about it-in particular vb and a green tinge thing i was going on about.
    I just thought i would clear a few things up, since tonight was the first time i could properly play with the pj and calibrate it.
    After tonight i have:
    1)fully opened the iris-gives much better pq
    2)put gamma readings to plus 7
    3)adjusted contrast and other settings.
    4)slightly de-focusing the lens
    results:
    The green mist thing has gone!i think this was down to the gamma settings, by adjusting it to plus 7 it has completely gone, and after a few settings being changed i just wanted to say that the pq is like WOW!WOW!WOW!nuff said!
    So i just want to clarify that this is a great great pj!
    Cheers
    Fred

    I have heard a number of reports that the iris open exaggerated the vertical banding...... i presume you didnt notice that?

    What gamma are you running at? I havent really seen anyone mentioning optimal gamma setting

    gamma settings at plus 7, and the iris only slightly exaggerates it, tbh it really isn't an issue at appropriate distances, and by defocusing the lens it is really not there.
    I would definately recommend the iris to be opened as the picture is a lot darker with it shut and basically the pq is not as good.

    i haven't got round to changing the number 14 thing yet, apparently you are meant to hold input and select together, at the exact same time, until it pops up.
    I am not sure if i should go into them yet-i am going to wait fro Kramer to post his replies to this new beauty!They will probably be more accurate then the people's over at avsforum.
    And Cyberheater the Z2 is a lot better, sorry to say. Blacks are definately blacker, colours are better IMO, no screendoor can be seen and i think the vb issue is less than the 200. I have nearly gotten ridden of the vb on my Z2.
    Pacemaker-try opening and shutting the picture in a scene and you will see that the pq is a lot better when it is open. The picture does seem kind of digital atm, i don't know how to explain it as you said pacemaker, but it is still brill!

    sorry holding input and select together gets into the factory settings, holding "menu" and "input" together for 5-10 secs can get you into the appropriate service menus.

    ok actually i got this info from avsforum.com, i have no idea which settings are appropriate as those Americans seem to be confusing themsleves about which mode does what etc
    I am not going to touch the other hidden settings until we get an opinion from someone experienced like Kramer.

    entering the Sanyo hidden menus. This is not a case of suck eggs, just a heads up from me as the two menus avaibable are huge, as I explored them on my last Z1.

    Basically, if you decide to enter each menu and change parameters, please, please, please ensure that you write the original setting down :lesson:

    There are simply far too many numbers to be remembered !!!

    Thanks,

    Cap:smashin:

    PS, Fred, glad things are sorted. I was worried for you bud.

    It all looks good fred. Hopefully will be picking one of these up for 600-700 quid in a years time.
    What do your parents think about it. Are they blown away?

    Fred, I know your mum's fronting the cash for the Z2 but do you have to pay her back? Where are you getting all this cash!? (from what I gather you're still in high school?).

    It's your duty as a son to suck as much cash off your parents as possible. If you have done your job right. The inland revenue won't receive a penny of inheritance tax when the time comes.

    i work on the checkouts man!its a doss!and i get to meet loadsa new people, loads of 16 year olds work there, must make up a lot of the work force lol.
    The home cinema i am building will definately be worth it, after about 9 months hard core work, while balancing my college work and buying and selling a lot of stuff hopefully my system will be one that sticks around for a while and gives me plenty of months of enjoyment in watching films, playing games and watching football matches
    can't wait!
    cheers

    must say that it nice to read about a 16 year old with ambition, and able to work hard for it.

    Of late, sometimes it feels that most 'young uns' will do anything but work for it.Suppose thats working where I work though.

    Good for you Fred.

    Captain Benefit :)

    (altough, I am bloody jealous:D, oh and lend us a tenner:clown:)

    cheers captain b, and yes it is true that teenagers now can't be bothered to save up for anything or work hard for anything, they seem to be happy just spending their parents money on short term things. I would like to see my money spent on something i can really appreciate, no doubt i do spend quite a lot going out and having a social life, but when i work i know it is for something i really have a passion for-now that is rewarding!
    And dek i think it will as i am leaving that place, sainsburys, soon so i will not have a lot of income till the summer, so you are looking at about a years use of it.:)
    cheers
    Fred
