Note: May also work with other models not listed. Example, information 
applied to a CT-27SF14V. See below for other procedures. Also, see bottom 
of page for user-sumbitted models that use these procedures (or slightly 
modified).
Many adjustments are available using the 'On Screen Display Menu,' or 
'Serviceman Adjustment Mode,' and you should understand what each 
adjustment does and note any of their values before changing!
Terminology
VU: Volume Up
VD: Volume Down
CU: Channel Up
CD: Channel Down
SM: Serviceman Mode

Entering serviceman mode
Serviceman mode (SM) can be entered in two ways, Remote Method and Other 
Method (back of case open).
Remote Method
In SET-UP icon, set antenna to CABLE
In TIMER icon, set sleep timer to 30
Exit menus and tune to channel 124
Adjust volume to 0
Press volume down (VD) on control panel and red 'CHK' will appear in the 
upper left corner
To toggle between Serviceman and Aging Modes press Action and VD on the 
control panel


Other Method
Short test point FA1 to cold ground FA2 (A-board: TP pin 8 to pin 3)
Receiver is in Aging Mode with yellow 'CHK' in the upper-left corner
Press Action and VU on the control panel and 'CHK' should be in red



The set is now in Serviceman Mode, of which there are five (5) separate 
Serviceman Modes:
'B' VCJ Sub Adjustments
'C' W.B. Adjustments
'D' Pincushion Adjustments
'S' Options Adjustments
'CHK' Normal use of VU/VU and CU/CD buttons (no adjustments can be made)

Use the Power button on the remote to switch between these modes



Accessing and Modifying the Service Adjustments
Once you have selected one of the four adjustments modes use the CU and CD 
buttons to move between settings.
Within a setting use the VU and VD buttons to adjust the level or value. 
NOTE: Write down any original values before changing!

All functions may not be available on a particular receiver, and some modes 
may exist on a receiver that are not listed above. These unknown settings 
should not be changed!
Checking Purity
When in non-adjustment SM (red 'CHK' in upper-left corner) press the Recall 
button on the remote to cycle between color modes:
White
Red
Green
Blue
Normal

Exiting serviceman mode
Enter the non-adjustment SM (red 'CHK' in upper-left corner) and press and 
hold the Action and Power buttons on the control panel for at least 2 seconds.
The receiver will shut off and turn back on to cable channel 3 with a 
preset sound level.
All programmed channels, caption data and other user-defined settings will 
be erased.


Other models
For Panasonic TX-W28R3 (and similar models)
The remote control is used for entering and storing adjustments, with the 
exception of cut-off adjustments which must always be done prior to service 
adjustment. Perform adjustments in accordance with screen display. The 
display on the screen also specifies the CCU variants as well as the 
approximate setting values. The adjustment sequence for the service mode is 
indicated below.

Set the Bass to maximum position, set the Treble to minimum position
Press the Reveal on the remote control and at the same time press the 
Volume on the customer controls at the front of the TV, this will place the 
TV into the Service mode
Press the RED/GREEN buttons to step down/up through the functions
Press the YELLOW/BLUE buttons to alter the function values
Press the STORE button on the preset panel after each adjustment has been 
made to store the required values
To exit the Service Mode, press the Normalization button **********
