    Are there any owners of the WS32Z419D that can help with my problem?....

    [I've been through the whole of the mega-thread on the 409 (http://www.avforums.com/forums/showthread.php?t=331180) with no joy]

    The bottom of the picture is horizontal but the top of the picture is not. I have been into the service menu but the adjustments only allow you to skew the left and right hand sides of the picture, not the top and bottom.
    The available deflection adjustments are shown here http://img525.imageshack.us/img525/1053/3deflectionadjustments4gh.jpg
    The "tilt" command in the user menu hides the effect a bit but I wondered if any one had experienced something similar and had found a solution (other than replacing the television).

    I've had a look through this forum and found someone with a similar problem here

    but no solution was suggested.

    One final thing - there is a screw (potentiometer?) at the back of the set labelled "SERVICE". Does this adjust any parameter?

    I am going to answer my own question:

    I spoke to an authorised Samsung repair centre who said that the fault could not be corrected. It was typical of CRTs and this model in particular.

    As well as the skewed picture, the live football on Channel 5 tonight looked pretty rough. The pitch looked smeared during camera movement, even when I reduced the SVM gain to zero. In wide angled shots, the players were surrounded by a pixel haze.

    The picture kept flipping between 4:3 and widescreen.

    Such a shame because the set looks lovely when turned off!

    Playing DVDs via the scart input was fine. If I was just going to use it for this then I might keep the TV. Unfortunately, my family watch freeview and, although we're not very fussy, SD looks too much like Youtube.

    It goes back to the retailer tomorrow.:(
