The image on my Sony FWD-50PX2 plasma screen moved up a bit. Now part of the top image (full screen) can be seen on the bottum. So the Hor. position is not correct.
The Hor. and Vert position normally can be changed in the menu, I can see the items in the menu but these are disabled, can't use them as many more items. I know that by a certain code it is possible to enable these items but I do not know the code. Who does. They are normaly used by repair shops etc.
Bought the screen when I was stationed in Korea and it was there for repairs probably they blocked the menu items over there. After moving back home this problem occured. Crying or Very sad

Found already codes for all kinds of other plasma screens but not for the SONY FWD-50PX2. So I was hoping that there would be someone out there who knows the codes for this type of screen.

Have you tried to access these position adjustments with various signal sources and at various customer setups. Not all controls may be active during all setup/modes.

There are still people out there that expect to get 5.1 channel sound on AM, phono, etc. using their stereo receivers.

Yes, tried it but can't be changed.

I know that there are codes to get these items activated (service menu). Found many of them for other types of screens but not for this one.

Giving you access to the service menu would be like giving a technician access to the engineers factory menu. If you are not a Sony Engineer, or a highly qualified technician, you are not qualified by any streatch of the imagination.

That being said:

This is a professional, multinational, highly capable display unit that will do it all.

If the areas you are trying to access are grayed out, there is a reason and you have only two options.

1: The set has a MALFUNCTION and that no amount of "adjusting" will correct. Take it to Qualified Personel. This set is just about 100% digital and if you get access to the service menu you will screw it up and very possibly damage the unit.
2: You need to read the directions. I know, that is a novel approach, but it sometimes actually works. There are several resets on this unit from within the customer menu. You might try that. When an area is greyed out, and there is no actual malfunction, it is ALWAYS because something else is set wrong, or the set feature does not work in present input/user mode

I hope I have not offended you, but the statements given are accurate.

Thanks for your reply.
But if all you say is true, why are the options then described in the owners manual? There it says that these items can be used.
I have the idea that some overactive Korean "technician" blocked these items.
Could that be possible?

I think you may be watching to much TV. Laughing Laughing Television sets are built with robotics and aligned with computers and firmware installation's.

SEE ALL OF OPTION #2 on previous post.
