    I love the LG Tv's this year. The plasma 42's i would rate as one of the best out there for it's excellent picture quality, their excellent warranty's (2 years) reliabilty, XD engine, and clear filters. All the other sets are extremely good but the 42's stick out since they have this clear filters this year(LG larger sets will have them next year) ANYWAY...

    If you are a tweaker.. (and you probably are since you're on these forums) LG included an EXPERT MODE inside it's flat panel TV's for techs, and sales people mainly. THIS IS NOT IN YOUR MANUAL. The Expert preset can be selected in the normal menu but the settings that make up the preset cannot be changed, unless you know the secret sequence followed by the password.

    The Tv will count how many times expert mode has been entered for whatever reason but you should know that. Expert mode lets you adjust EVERYTHING on the set better than that of a great computer monitor.


    THIS IS NOT IN THE MANUAL
    Here's how you do it:

    HOLD the MENU BUTTON. The normal menu will pop up but if you continue holding the menu button for about 5 seconds a 4 digit lock code box will show up.

    THE PASSWORD: in the shape of a L (how cute for Lg) enter 8741

    Bam.. now you can tweak to your hearts content. It has a default mode so if you really mess up the picture you can default it to factory settings.

    Have fun :D

    Does anyone know if entering the expert mode negates the warranty?

    Hope not

    :eek: , since there's a default setting for back to factory it shouldn't effect warranty. To be honest though I'm to chicken to mess around with it anyways:D . I used the custom setting on my dlp then adjusted and fine tuned with my ovation dvd disc:) !

    Does anyone know if the LG 42PC3D supports 1080i or is it just 720P?

    I'm pretty sure it accepts 480i, 480p, 720p and 1080i, but it only displays 720p (effectively, though it is really a 768 resolution, as are most 42" hdtv plasmas).

    Expert Mode settings?

    I entered 'Expert Mode' on my LG 42PC5D and made some changes. However selecting Expert Mode 1 or 2 in picture settings, I was unable to change any of the XD settings. Does expert automatically engage or disable XD? Also I would like to know how to turn Black Level expansion off (there's only 'high' and 'low') and how do I disable VSM (velocity scan modulation aka edge enhancement). I checked out both service menus and the expert mode, but I cannot find out how to disable these settings. Thanks guys.
