    Hi, I have an old 32inch widescreen Grundig in the bedroom. To access the service menu (and ultimately the geometry) the code you put in where the four dashes are is 8500.

    You can then have fun trying to correct the pic. I suggest noting the settings first so you can rectify any mess ups.

    Not very old then. Try the service menu as 'Pug72' has suggested. Do make a note of all the settings first so you can go back to them if need be). On the subject of aspect ratio - do make sure that the aspect ratio of what you're watching is how the broadcaster intends it to be watched in - on your particular tv - before you make any adjustments. It's easy to get confused. Regards, yt.
