    Hi I have a Philips 24PW6006 which I think has the same menu structure as your set. However the settings in each individual set are different to each other. I had bowing at the sides and used settings such as EWP (East West Parabola) and EWT (East West Trapezium) to correct it. It took a lot of gradual tweaking using the THX video setup features on the Star Wars Attack of the Clones DVD. Rememebr that some of the settings will differ in the varoius aspect ratio settings.
    I am now only left with a slight bowing of the horizontal bars at the top and bottom of the screen. philps stated that these settings are not adjustable are within tolerances and horizontal bowing is present in all of the sets of thsi model. My local TV engineer said that slight geometry probelms were unavoidable in sets of this price level.
    The clear function is not to reset geometry settings to default. It clears any error codes that may be displayed at the top of the service menus.
    Anyway the following site has loads of info about service menus etc for Philps sets

    Also this link gives a really good explanation of the various settings and their functions.

    Hope this is of some help. I am sure with persistence you will sort out the geometry to an acceptable level.
