Ok I have included some information that could be VERY helpful and given the correct credit to the original author. If you find this useful don't forget to rate the thread. Thank you.

Without proper documentation Don't mess around with the service mode adjustments unless you know what you're doing and have the service manual to guide you.
Once you enter service mode the first thing you should do is record all the original values BEFORE you change anything! - This is the only way to restore the television to its original (factory default) state should it become necessary to do so.

  • Sit in front the TV, you will need to be able to access keys on the remote and the TV at the same time. Turn the TV "ON"
  • Turn the volume all the way down to 0.
  • Press and hold the TV's front panel volume down button, and then press and hold the remote's "9" button for about a second.
  • The service mode will appear. \ -or-
  • Press "MUTE" on the remote.
  • Press "MUTE" on the remote again, but this time continue to press "MUTE".
  • While still pressing down on "MUTE", press the "MENU" button on the TV front. Release the "MUTE" button. You should now have an S (for service mode) displayed in the upper right corner.
  • Pressing MENU again should bring up the first service option Pressing the Channel Up/Down keys brings up the different service options. Pressing the Volume Up/Down keys changes the associated HEX value.
  • One you have entered the service mode, you can bring up the various test screens by pressing the "TV/VIDEO" button. For example, to minimize screen non-linearities, press the channel down key until PARA appears on the screen, with the associated default value (this is the parabolic adjustment option).
    Then, bring up the cross-hatch pattern by repeated pressing of the TV/VIDEO button. You can then use the volume Up/Down buttons to change the PARA settings, this should cause the grid to bow in (concave) and out (convex). Adjust until the grid is the most linear.
    The numbers 1,2,3,4,5,6 jump to different items. 9 displays SELF CHECK
    The number 7 displays a grid. There's a blinking cursor in the upper left corner. The numbers 2,4,6,8 move the cursor. 3 cycles the colors (RGB), 5 stops the cursor from blinking, then when you push 2,4,6,8, you are adjusting the convergence at that point for the selected color. Pushing 7 again gives you a "warped" grid for a few moments. Pushing 7 again removes the grid from the screen.
    If you're attempting to adjust color or geometry errors, you'll need the Video Essentials DVD, Laser Disc or some other source of test material.

    With the tank off, can you see if the rod in the handle is hitting the spot where the tank sits on, if not then there is a problem in the handle. If it is, then the reservior asm may be bad, it is what the tank sits on.

    You are probably leaking hydraulic (ATF) fluid.
    Check the lines and cylinders for leaks. Replace any leaking lines or cylinders. Always replace them in pairs.
    When the leak is fixed...
    Behind the rear seat is the motor/pump/reservoir.
    With the top down, fill the reservoir with ATF.
    Cycle the system a few times.
    Repeat till the reservoir will accept no more fluid.
    You can change it to a manual top by removing the bolt at the top of the cylinders and lowering the both shafts down into the cylinders.

    Items freeze on top shelf of refrigerator. All temps are per factory specs.

    If it is only freezing on the upper shelf then you will need to replace the "air diffuser". It is not closing when the refrigerator temp is reached. Here is the part to order.

    My fridge side out the blue is freezing. All

    I had the same problem with mine a few years ago. After two thermostat replacements and still having the problem, the third technician out explained that if you blocked the vent on the inside of the refrigerator, (the shelf below meat drawer,left side) it could cause freeze up. Sure enough, haven't had a problem since.

    Layer of ice formed on the bottom of freezer and a layer of water with no obvious source has formed on the top shelf on the right side.

    That is an easy one. Instead of the defrost liquid draining down the drain hole it is blocked and a slab of ice is forming. You must thaw out the ice box and clear the drain hole. Another thing that could cause this slab of ice could be a leaky ice maker water valve or a faulty ice maker pumping in too much liquid into the ice mold.

    Turn the refrigerator temp control down try factory setting, usually c on frige and 3 on freezer control. The cold air circulating from the freezer enters at the top of the frige therefor it is usually colder.

    is it liquid or powder? we had this problem with cascade powder.... tried liquid cascade and the same thing happened even though i'd been using cascade for YEARS.... manual said could be detergent was "old" and beyond its shelf-life, or that we used too much or too little (go figure that one out LOL).... not trying to promote a brand here, but we switched to palmolive ECO gel and haven't had a problem since -- no goop left in dispenser!.... hope that helps... -cynthia :)

    AC recharging

    The larger pipe is the gas side. The smaller one is the liquid side. You want to add on the gas side. Keep the can right side up to avoid sending liquid in to the compressor. a/c compressors pump gas not liquid. Introducing liquid to the compressor can break the valves.
