PVM Service Manuals, 20M2MDU and others.


Jaguar Ninja
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"


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.


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.

PVM-20M2U, PVM-20M4U, PVM-20M2E, PVM-20M4E, PVM-20M4A

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 :)


King's Dry Cleaner
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.

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.

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.

Added the 2013QM to the first post.

skinny503 should be contributing another service manual soon as well. I'm happy to host these for the community, so if anyone else has PVM service manuals please pass them along.

I just printed out the 2950Q and 2530 manuals at work and ordered the RM-854 since I didn't have a remote for my PVM. Thanks for doing this!

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!
