I was reading an article in the Daily News I believe. The main article talked about HDTV and what to look for. In the article it states that there are service technicians that offer television calibrations for about $65 an hour...and it takes about an hour to finish. I have a 36" Sony Wega ...I forget the model, manufacture date was 2000. My main problem is the black level. When I'm watching a dark scene there is a darker vertical hazy bar near the left side of the screen. This is downright annoying at times. 5 years, and I can't get use to it. I try to make my brightness darker to get rid of the problem, but to do that, scenes are too dark. Does anyone recommend what I can do myself or who I can get to do it for me? Money is unfortunately an issue. More then $100 would be breaking me.
