    Hi,

    Have had my telly for almost a week now, and my main gripe is that the geometry or the picture looks out, in a pin-cushion type way, especially at the corners (which I suppose you have to expect but is still noticeable) when vertical lines are displayed. This is also shown when in 4:3 mode, the top right hand corner of the supposedly vertical side of the picture warps inwards. Is this something that I can fix myself, if anyone has the service menu commands? Is it worth calling Dixons, or easier just to live with it?

    A few more minor things I've noticed are that when watching dvds on my S-VHS out player, vertical lines look wobbly throughout the screen, backed up by the THX optimiser. Also, again in 4:3 mode, it appeared that the tv was overscanning as the left-hand edge of one of the rectangles was missing.

    Cheers,

    Nic

    you can correct geometry in service menu, but it will never have 100% straight lines.

    I followed the instructions here and was able to modify the geometry on my 36PL32.

    As it says in the link post - remember to write down your original values in case something goes wrong.

    Edit: Just need blah to deliver my copy of DVE!

    Thanks! That's just what I've been looking for, unfortunatley am away straight from work today so won't get to try it out until Monday :rolleyes:

    One (probably silly question) - the link lists these as the settings to play with:

    H-pos (horizontal position)
    V-pos (vertical position)
    H-amp (horizontal amplitude)
    V-amp (vertical amplitude)
    EW-amp1(EW-amplitude coarse pincushion looks like)
    EW-amp2(EW-amplitude finer/corners looks like)
    Trapez1(Trapezium comp_ suck it and see!)
    Trapez2(finer of the above suck it and see!)
    V-lin (vertical linearity)
    V-sym (vertical symmetry used with above to sort vertical linearity !)

    What exactly is Vertical Linearity?
