Fix for Ghosting on your Sony Bravia TV

Fix posted by "dj_uk" in the AVforums
Fix was made for the Sony KDF E50A12U
This Fix is for Sony Tv's that is ghosting in 60hz with HD signals.

This "solution" utilises a "service" menu, that only trained engineers should use.
Use of this information is entirely at your own risk, you mess up your telly, it's your own silly fault. Don't go messing with stuff in there you don't know about.

To bring up the "service" menu, put the TV in standby mode(turn it off with the remote),
then press in sequence :

Onscreen Display ( the little screen with the i+ in it )
5 ( channel number 5 )
Volume Up ( upper end of volume button )
Analogue ( middle top button )

The TV should switch on and when it's warmed up, you should see a screen with lots of big green lettering on it.

Press the "menu" button ( middle bottom )

Use the direction dial to move down to "LCD Drivers" and press right on the dial to enter this menu.

Move down to "S H Pos Reg R". It should be "10", change it to "11". ( Left/Right to adjust )
Move down to "S H Pos Reg G". It should be "10", change it to "11".
Move down to "SHPos Reg B". It should be "10", change it to "11".

Press the menu bottom to drop out of the menus, and the standy button to drop to standby. Switch back on, and hopefully your ghosting will be gone.

This has been dub this the "Spinal Tap" solution. Since... "if you put it on 11, that's 1 louder..."

Some Sony televisions use a different procedure to senter service mode:
    Turn on the main power switch and enter into the stand-by mode.
    Press the following sequence of buttons on the Remote Control:
    info/disp (OSD)
    5 (Number 5)
    vol+ (Volume Up)
    [5] (Number 5)
    [vol+] (Volume Up)
    [teletext off]
On TV:
Hard Power On
On Remote:
Standby Off
Digital TV

Youtube video off this may come later.

Worked a treat on my tv. Thanks very much for the help.

I tried this but when I went into the options mine were already set to 11. Because the guide said they should originally be found set to 10 I tried setting them to 10. Made the ghosting much worse. Went back in, changed them to 12 and my ghosting is fixed. So if anyone else has ghosting problems and theirs are set to 11 already, try 12 :)

i have a different version of the tv KDL the service menu is different there is no lcd drivers

Joe A said...

Turn off motion flow and cinimotion if you TV has either of those settings. Most android Sony tvs do. They screw up 3d add they insert frames.

Thank You.Sony TV Service Center in Hyderabad also provides useful information. From my personal experience I'm suggesting them.
