    Hello all,

    Does anyone know how to change how loud the lowest setting is on a
    KV-27FS100? For example, on "one bar", it's totally silent, but on "two
    bars" it's too loud for late night watching. My other Wega doesn't have
    this problem.

    I found some instructions for getting into "service mode", but none of
    the settings jumped out at me.

    Thanks for any pointers,
    Joe

    there probably is no way to adjust the settings on the digital volume
    control, you could place a resistor on each speaker however this will
    decrease the loudest volume possible as well. you would need to match each
    one and the value would depend on how much of a volume drop you wanted

    Thanks for the reply - maybe I'll just try some duct tape!

    I don't know about anywhere else, but here in England we have a saying.
    If someone is talking too loudly or is annoyingly they might be told to "put
    a sock in it"

    AFAIK the phrase originated in the days of wind-up gramophones or
    phonographs.

    There is no practical way to adjust this. I am aware of this problem in
    these models. Most people don't play these sets so low. Usually they run the
    line out to sound system, and thus use the volume control on the sound
    system.

    I would not put resistors in series with the speakers. This will cause a
    mismatch between the output stage and speakers. It is not good practice with
    these sets.

    Put a resistor in series and another in parallel with each speaker to get it
    right, or find a datasheet for the audio amp IC and change a couple
    resistors to reduce the gain.

    Duct tape is good...... just cover each speaker with it..

    Real ass would be: "Cover each ear with a piece of duct tape".

    A*s*i*m*o*v

    .... Techs would rather pee on an electric fence for the light show

    Had this problem on our recent Sony, until I noticed the "volume offset"
    setting in the user menu and set it to -10 ;)

    Take it yours hasn't got this setting then?

    No such luck, but thanks for the suggestion. I've found several other
    people with this problem, but no real solution.
