    Have only had this TV for a week but so far I love it! Looking forward to the Sopranos tonite in HD - Glorious!!! My only gripe so far is the black level - there is no detail what-so-ever in a dark black area. Brite,pix etc won't correct it. How do I enter the Service Menu?

    Cheers

    Select SET-UP icon and select CABLE mode
    Select TIMER icon and set SLEEP time for 30 Min.
    Press "ACTION" twice to exit menus.
    Turn to Channel 124
    Adjust VOLUME to minimum (0)
    Press VOLUME decrease button on the tv.
    Red CHK appears, press Power on the remote.
    To exit:
    Press and hold Action and Power on the tv for a couple seconds.
    I hope you know what you're doing. [​IMG]

    I dont think anything you could do in the service menu will help. You need a correct gray scale, then have your brightness and contrast set appropriately. The latter 2 can be done in the user menu.

    Best of luck!
