2 China 15581 Adjustment method
2.1 B+ voltage adjustment
a) Make sure the power supply is AC120 V/60 Hz (for America or Canada area).
b) Connect the digital voltmeter to B+ testing point，receive A7 signal, set the picture control to
“ NATURAL” status, adjust RP501 to make B+ voltage be 145 V±0.3 V (just for TOSHIBA
pure flat CRT, as regards to other CRT, B+ value will be marked on the parts list.)
c) In STAND BY mode, the B+ voltage will be about 84 V.
2.2 OSD position adjustment
Receive NTSC signal, change the factory adjustment menu page 3 OSD item’s value to make user’s
menu be in screen’s center position.
2.3 China 15581 AGC adjustment
a) Receive 60 dB split field (or grey-scale) signal.
b) Use oscilloscope or digital voltmeter to monitor tuner 1 pin’s voltage （RFAGC pin）.
c) Select factory adjustment menu page 4 R-AGC item, making use of [←][→] button to increase the
value from down to up until the voltage just reach 4.0 V，at this time picture noisy spots should
disappear basically. Otherwise continue to fine tune R-AGC item.
d) Exit the factory menu.

horizontal center HPOS, to make picture center be in accordance with screen center.
2.6.2 NTSC (60 Hz) H-center, V-center adjustment
Receive A6 signal, set picture mode to “MEMORY 2“ status, adjust V-center VP60, H-center HPS,
to make picture center be in accordance with screen center.
2.7 Vertical scanning amplitude adjustment
2.7.1 PAL (50 Hz) vertical amplitude adjustment
Receive D35 signal, set picture mode to “MEMORY 2“ status, adjust vertical amplitude HIT, to
make picture up/down overscanning be screen size’s 8%.
2.7.2 NTSC (60 Hz) vertical amplitude adjustment
Receive A12 signal, set picture mode to “MEMORY 2“ status, adjust V-amplitude HITS, to make
picture up/down overscanning be screen size’s 8%.
2.8 Raster correction adjustment、H-amplitude adjustment
2.8.1 PAL (50 Hz) raster correction adjustment , H-amplitude adjustment.
Receive PAL white crosshatch signal, set picture mode to “MEMORY 2“ status, adjust DPC to
make raster distortion be in minimum, adjust WID to make picture left/right overscanning be
screen size’s 8%.
2.8.2 NTSC (60 Hz) raster correction adjustment
Receive NTSC A21 signal, set picture mode to “MEMORY 2“ status, adjust DPCS to make raster
