    I frequently use the auto focus/manual ajustment on my TV to
    get the right alignment
    but recently I noticed that when I first switch on my set
    the picture is sometimes shift up about 1.5mm leaving a very
    thin blank edge on the bottom or sometimes the bottom and
    top edge are curved in slightly so if you look closely at
    a straight edge across the top of screen, you notice that
    the line curves down slightly towards the center
    also yesterday I noticed that the whole screen is very slightly tilted to the right side

    I have been able to fix this problems by doing a couple of auto focus. 'cept for the tilt problem, it did go away

    just wondering if anyone else had this experience with their set

    Thanks

    Unless you have a problem, under normal circumstances I don't see how it would hurt. On my Sony RPTV, the convergence is saved and programmed in the system. So, every time I hit the convergence button, it is just realigning how it was initially set.

    I use the convergence button usually twice a week and everything seems fine.

    Did you account for drifting due to the set being off for an extended period? I know that when I first turn my HDTV on after it being off over night, my convergence as well as my pictures bright level is off to a degree.

    However after it has been on for about an hour or less the picture falls back into it's normal appearance that I calibrated it.

    Sometimes it just needs to warm up.
