    RPTVs have given me the convergence bug .... if it's off, it just drives me crazy [​IMG]
    We got two small sets for our kids rooms and I noticed both have the reds out of whack.
    Anyone know how to get into the service mode of the new JVCs to adjust the convergence?

    Chris:

    From what I've seen, direct-view sets rarely offer convergence options in their service menus. The only TV I ever saw that on was a high-end Sony Wega - I doubt you'd find it on a 19" set.

    Convergence on direct-view sets is more of a service issue than anything else. The direct-view is a completely different beast when compared to RPTVs in this respect.

    Direct views are not going to offer a service level option to adjust convergence. Have you brought up any Avia/VE test patterns to see if it is indeed a convergence issue or if it is perhaps a color decoder (red push) or grayscale issue?

    cheers,
