The service menu however now controls blur reduction, so it stays on or off regardless of AC power to the monitor, from the service menu setting. The OD Gain (Overdrive gain) setting that is part of the factory menu is also something you really SHOULD be using, as it GREATLY improves the overdrive (look back in the thread for pictures for proof), however the OD gain setting is not persistent and will revert on a simple resolution, refresh rate or OSD profile preset switching. And why do you want to disable the service menu? It's not like it remains up. I keep mine unlocked (on the much older Z monitor). Just turning off the monitor or unplugging it disables the service menu. but due to the importance of the "OD Gain" setting, you should at least have the factory menu (aka service menu #2) unlocked to improve the atrocious ghosting.
ah thank you. by disable i meant, how would i make it so i could access the normal menu again to adjust brightness / contrast etc as it used the same button as the one pressed to enter service menu, it's all good now figured it out.
still playing with the colours though
do you know how to access service menu 2? and that really sucks considering i play a game in 1280 x 720, i guess based on what you have said that i would have to apply OD gain settings everytime i launch the game? (if its worth it i could deal with that)
just going to add for anyone interested, 240 hz is nice and regardless of what anyone else has said, is in my opinion quite an obvious change from 144 - similar to going down to 100 or something from 144, its not life changing but clear as day
on an old arena fps i play (warsow) the difference between 144 and 240 is barely noticeable, maybe due to picmip and drawflat (super low gphx)
on overwatch the difference is quite obvious, but nothing to cry about, im actually considering returning the xl2450 if i dont manage to reach acceptable colour production, im sure its possible but it has never taken me this long or been this much of a pain before. (saying that i have only gone through 5 different 144hz monitors in the last 5 years)
edit: just searched the thread for 'od' 'overdrive' 'od gain' and i must be retarded but i cant find any post on how to access service menu #2 or how to tweak the od gain setting or .. well, could anybody help me out here? thanks!
