    Just took delivery of a Hitachi 57S500 and just noticed that the picture in the left-most 6 inches of the screen is bending down about an inch. It is very noticable when something is shown across the screen (like a stock or score ticker across the bottom of the screen). Is this something I can correct myself, or do I need CC to send a new one out? Any help would be appreciated.

    Im guessing nothing is wrong, but its the stretch mode that you're in.

    Put in a DVD and see if you notice the same thing, if not then you can be fairly positive that's what it is.

    Hi Matt,

    the stretch mode wont cause the curve.

    You seem to have a geometry problem. Just call up CC and tell them to send out a tech to correct it. It is easy to do.

    Regards

    Gregg

    Thanks Gregg. You wouldn't be planning a trip to Arkansas anytime soon?

    Please don't take this the wrong way, but do it yourself! Learning your way around service level convergence will be very useful to you later when your convergence goes out of alignment (and it will). It is very easy to fix a geometry problem once you know how. I would recommend checking the thread below. It will answer all of your questions on how to fix your geometry as well as how to tweak your Hitachi for maximum enjoyment.

    The technician you have out from CC will likely say something stupid like "it is within the specifications set by Hitachi". If he actually does try to fix your geometry issue he will more than likely end up making it worse! Mark my words - I know from experience!
