    My 32zp48 has right to left slope/tilt of 4mm. Doesn't sound much, but it is noticeable when any graphics appear on screen.

    Is this reasonable or should i ask for an engineer/swap?

    Opinions?

    Most modern TV's have a tilt adjustment to compensate for the Earth's magnetic field.

    Have you tried that?

    No tilt control on the 32" model, I believe - only the 36", unfortunately

    Did you get anything done about your TV - I have the same problem?

    Thanks

    Just got the following answer from Toshiba

    "I am afraid that there is no adjustment for the slope of the picture as
    you described. An engineer would not be able to adjust it without
    disassembly. We have found that the large widescreen tubes are sensitive
    to changes in the Earth's magnetic field caused by the TV orientation (ie.
    which way the screen is facing compared to the way it was facing in the
    factory when it was set up). You should be able to see this yourself if
    you turn the TV through 90 degrees and then measure the slope again. In
    cases like this a threshold has to be set defining a fault condition, and
    up to 5mm is within this threshold. If the retailer were to replace the
    TV, it is possible that you might find that the replacement has a larger
    slope."

    Hmmmmmm the joys of the "better" picture produced by CRTs. The only route to assured perfect geometry is via Plasma or direct view LCD.

    Just to confirm a posting on another thread, I rotated my TV by 90 degrees to-day to test Toshiba's info. The tilt disappeared.

    :oops:
    One of several reasons for me deciding against the Tosh despite it's several strong points. A few features that Tosh could have easily implemented in thier software.
