    Ok, i seem to ahve just noticed this, perhaps i was blinded the first few days with me tv, btu now its very aparent to me, my picture is curving on my new toshiba 36 HFX71

    in the bottom left hand corner the picture is fine, but it immeadiately begins to curve inward about 1/4" at about 4 1/2" up the screen the curve stops and it continues staight up leaving me with a slice on the side of my tv which isn't gettign any picture at all.

    this si only showing up on my dvd feed. does anyone have an idea whats causing this?

    my dvd player is a PS2

    Sounds like a combination of geometry and overscan issues. And this is only fixable via the service menu. You will need to call the Toshiba service number to have a factory-authorized rep' come out and correct these problems.

    OR, if the set has been purchased recently enough, the dealer can swap your unit out for another one.
