My Sony GDM-F500R looks a lot better after reprogramming the brightness with WinDAS, but I think I could use a little more Contrast. How do I increase the contrast with WinDAS??
couple quick questions, firstly my com port is working , using modem in it, which i have to remove toplug in my lead, do you need to have power to the monitor and does it need a video feed? thanks
getting cant communicate with monitor error, still working on it
Did you tryed this?It worked for me.HP P1110
HP P1110 Model D2847 (Nokia) Service Mode
(edited the original message found in this topic cause it didn't worked,This way it will work)
Access to the service mode is as follows :
1) Turn the monitor off(powerbutton).
2) Push the menubutton holding it down, Power on the monitor.
3) Release the menubutton.
4) Push the menubutton again to acces servicemode.
The password is 7711
Many thanx to all posters..

...When saving and uploading the .DAT file, is the monitor supposed to blank out temporarily? My Dell P1110 blanks out for approx. 15-30 seconds and was just wondering if this was normal.
My Sony Multiscan CPD-G420 suffered from the same brightness + retrace line problems. I did the "Image Restoration" fix prior reading this thread. Everything went back to normal and the color is vibrant as ever. However after reading this thread the solution of using "Color Return" or "Image Restoration" isn't recommended, so i guess i'm very lucky this time. =D Anyway good luck to others.
I got lucky taking another look with a viewer in hex mode and figured out the difference that was causing the "save format different" error. Notepad was the editor I first tried to use to edit. I changed one byte, at 0x33e in the original file, from 0x34 to 0x30. For some inexplicable reason, notepad changed 4 other bytes in the file, 4 instances of x20 to 0x00, at 0x00F, 0x01F, 0x12F, and 0x13F. I fixed it using debug.
Now that I'm back to square one I have to figure out why dropping G2 doesn't help. This P991 is very blurry.
Hi, I've been following this thread and performed the resistor mod on my Sony GDM-F500R and it has helped a lot. I have the ECS cable on order so when I get it I plan to put the 10Mohm resistor back in and use WinDAS to fix it up.
Couple question concerning this monitor though:
I used the Nokia Monitor Test software and found that my convergence at the very top cannot be corrected. I can get red in but blue is out or vice versa. Also the top seems to be arched up slightly in the middle (same for very bottom of monitor too) and I don't have a geometry adjustment for that.
Secondly, my GDM-F500R takes 4 to 5 minutes to display an image after it is powered up in the morning. It is totally black for up to 5 minutes, then, ever so faintly, the image starts to appear and then brightens up normally. It seems something is taking a VERY long time to warm up. If I power down the monitor breifly, then it will come back on in about 30 seconds, but if I power it down and let it totally cool, I'm back the the 5 minute wait time before the image even starts to appear.
Can anyone help with some answers? What to adjust or replace?
oops double post..
Anyone know where the connector on a Sony GDM-F500R is?
I've got the same monitor with the "too bright" problem as well. I'm now just waiting for the RS232<->TTL cable I bought from eBay. I've also downloaded Windas.
Opening the GDM-F500R is easy: Just remove four screws from the back and the back case comes off readily. No internal braces to defeat. The upper two screws have plastic covers that pops off using a small flat screwdriver.
Here are pictures:
The pins' labels (GND, STBY5V, RxD, TxD) I got from reading the screened labels on the other side of the circuit board. I am assuming the screened labels are correct; that the TxD and RxD are not reversed. We'll see...
