    My Tosh 36ZP38 arrived from John Lewis on Tuesday. This is my first big widescreen set (Sony 29" 4:3 previously). I'm generally pleased with it and haven't yet noticed the problems mentioned on this forum (ie. buzzing, light stripe in the middle of the screen and dirty screen effect). It really does show up all the deficiencies in the signal fed into it though. I suppose I'll get used to that. When you do feed it with a good quality signal though, it looks fantastic.

    The geometry is fine but there is a red convergence error on the extreme left side of the screen of about 2-3mm. Is this within spec for a set of this size? I know this is going to bug me in the long run. Should I send it back or is it not likely to be any better in another set? I'm loathe to change it as it's ok apart from this one thing.

    I understand small magnets need to be stuck to the tube to fix convergence errors. I don't fancy tackling that myself. Is this the kind of thing an average TV engineer is capable of, or would I need to get in a specialist? Any idea how much a specialist would cost?
