    On my Panasonic TX-PK2 flatscreen 28" TV the horizontal lines are all stright, but the vertical ones have a tendency to bow. This is most noticable when channel 4's square logo (the one that appears on some of their adverts) is on screen and also in the sky sports logo that appears in the top right corner of their broadcasts.

    I'm a bit of a newbie when it comes to messing about with TVs, so any help would be greatly appreciated :)

    Thanks for the welcome, however, the link you have posted appears to be broken. I will, however, try a search of my own and see what i can find.

    Sorry if I've mentioned this before guys.

    Linearity is dependent on your TV's power supply. If you set the contrast too high, the power supply often can't cope and linearity suffers as a result. Try setting the contrast surprising low - on my Panny TX32PL1 it's set atound 25-30% - and see if this helps.

    Cheers

    Changing the contrast to 50% has made quite a difference, especially to the Sky menus. I'll check the service menu out later, thank you all for the help :)
