    Hi,

    What's the best way to test whether a tv set has bad geometry?
    Do you test for picture (pan and scan) or text scrolling (e.g text scrolling at bottom of page; stretched at sides).

    Are the Lucas THX programs on DVDs any good for checking geometry?

    I hae a Sony KV32FQ70U which exhibits the above effects. Should I get a refund/replace?

    hi mate

    not sure if this is what you mean but...

    ive got an FQ75 and it had rather dodgy geometry. the way i fixed it was to use the THX optimiser off Lilo & Stitch, pick the test that puts a rectangle round the a circle. then i went into the service menu and into the deflection menu and using this as a guide i got the rectangle to look spot on.

    sorted it out for me picture-wise

    hope that helps :)
