    I have been looking to access this models service menu for calibration. No one seemed to have them since most models come with an extended menu that includes advanced adjustments. Mine for whatever reason, did not.

    Here is how it's done for anyone else having the same issues that I did:

    Activate Service Mode: With the unit turned on. Press & hold the VOLUME DOWN /- button on the chassis front panel and at the same time quickly press the Remote Control STATUS button [+] 3 times.

    Select Adjustment Item: Press the LEFT and RIGHT buttons on the remote control.

    Select Category: Press the ACCESS button on the remote control. Press the UP and DOWN buttons on the remote control to select the alignment subject.

    Change Data: Press the VOLUME UP /+ and VOLUME DOWM /- buttons on the remote control.

    Exit Service Mode: Press "R" on the remote control to exit the IIC mode. To exit the CAT (main service mode) use the DOWN button on the remote to select the ID mode, and then switch the main power off and back on.

    Hope that helps...............
