Does anyone know the easiest way to disable VSM on a Toshiba 36AF41? I've read several reports and it seems there may be multiple ways to do this. I can't, however, find a person that seems to be sure of what they are talking about. A method using the service menu is preferable as I'd rather not open up the back panel if possible. Does anyone have this TV or know how to disable this for certain?

Unfortunately I can't tell you how to disable VSM on your TV, but I can suggest how you can find out. When I bought a Panasonic CT-36D32 it had VSM and no way to turn it off in the customer menu. I was able to buy the service manual from Panasonic and after 2 weeks of waiting and 15 minutes of reading had the VSM disabled. The only problem with this is not all companies are willing to sell the service manual for their TVs because of exclusive deals with repair centers Posted Image. The alternatives are cutting wires inside your TV which is even more dangerous with a direct-view than a RPTV and not recommended at all, or paying a ISF certified technician to calibrate your TV. I believe that most good ISF technicians could disable VSM on your TV, but I would ask to make sure.

Scott,

As Richard has described VSM is hard-wired in the AF series. Using Movie Mode will disable VSM and give greater color accuracy.

The only problem is, on my TV, Movie mode sets Color, Brightness, etc at 50%. My Avia calibration is miles away from these settings. Does anyone have any tips on where to find service manuals????

Select "Movie" mode, then you can tweak from there. The SVM will not turn back on as long as you first enter movie mode, then tweak the other controls.

Jim, when I enter any new settings in movie mode, the set returns to "Memory" mode. Now just to be sure of what you're saying, the SVM will still be disabled anyway?

Scott,

Correct, the moment you make a change in "Movie" mode you are now in preference mode, but the SVM will not turn back on as long as you start the tweaking from "Movie" mode.
