Since a lot of us here have PVM's, I decided to finally post this publicly. I'll be adding other service manuals as contributed by other members.

Please be nice to my server and right-click / "save as"

SERVICE MANUALS

20m2mdu / 14m2mdu

This manual covers 14M2MD* and 20M2MD* models, but it has also come in handy with my 20M4U and a couple other 14 inch models. Courtesy of yours truly.

http://neohyphengeo.com/PVM20M2MDU_SM_SONY_EN.pdf

Most people should just need Section 3 - Set Up Adjustments starting on page 19 of the PDF. This explains how to access the service menu, and default settings and setting ranges for most common adjustments.

Thanks dude, this is more than appreciated, though I think I have found that somewhere else already. Gave that to the tv guy to fix my 20M7MDE.

I've shared it with a couple people on here before, glad you were able to find it whether I helped or not :)

When I first got it, I had to pay for it, so I'm just passing it along to the neobros :)

Nah, that's totally dope and really helped, since the 20M7MDE is pretty much identic from my not very professional view :D

I have a friend working for press being in regular contact to sony guys. I already asked him, if he can get his hands on service manuals. no positive answer yet, though.

I found a "Operating Instructions" Here (http://www.millervideofilm.com/manuals/SonyTrinitron.pdf) as well.


Also you can get most of the information here from sony (https://www.servicesplus.sel.sony.com/) themself

Perhaps we need to create a wiki entry for all the different model PVMs, BVMs and other make of RGB monitors.

We can add owners manuals, service manuals and general adjustment tips and tricks for each model.

Because as is, that info is spread out all over the place on the web.


And some of it, like service manuals , is difficult to find. Or you have to pay for it.

Sounds like a good idea. If the sony guy EVER responds. I will tell.
Here is the manual for the 2130QM, maybe someone can host it elsewhere.

Thanks a ton! Looks like there's a lot of good information in the manual. Don't need to make any further adjustments to my PVM right now, but it's nice to have a copy in case issues crop up in the future.

These are great. Even though none of them are for my specific monitor, they helped me understand what all of the geometry adjustments are in the service menu. Thanks!

Does anyone know where to find information about the BVM-2016P?
Can the 2016P do high resolution (800, 900 lines) or 31kHz?

skate323k137
09-05-2014, 03:23 PM
I haven't found any docs for that monitor, sorry. I highly doubt it can do 31khz or any high def stuff though.

the TV lines spec of a monitor is not a resolution spec. It's how many alternating black/white vertical lines the display is capable of showing without them running together. While 800 TV line displays are generally "better" than 600 TV line displays, it's really not that big of a difference given a 240p (320x240) signal. 320x240 is the resolution, which has nothing to do with the TV lines spec. With a 240p signal, 240 horizontal lines are drawn no matter what. The tv line spec determines how precisely details within those lines can be displayed (in other words, how precisely vertical lines could be displayed)

Unfortunately I can't edit the OP anymore. Still trying to see if a mod could restore that ability as it would clean this thread up a lot.

rs-232c pinout is in the manual http://neohyphengeo.com/PVM20M2MDU_SM_SONY_EN.pdf but as far as protocol I do not know of that documentation.

Awesome thread here guys!

Anyone happen to have the service manual for the PVM-3230? I'm wondering if there is a hidden menu for vsize/hsize/etc or if it will require decasing. Due to the OSD menus for other settings, I'm guessing it's the former.

Check the links vasya posted, there are a shitload of manuals in there. Otherwise most basic stuff you could probably get from similar models manuals.
