    Is the TV defective and needs to be returned or will this be fixed if I get it calibrated?
    thanks

    I believe there are several menu's where you can change the screen image. Now with it being crooked i'm not sure, but try to magic focus option to see if that works. This may not do anything helpful, but its worth a try. Where did you get the TV from?

    How crooked is "crooked"? Specifically, how many inches off of level if you use a central crosshair as reference? Slight deviations from square are pretty common, among other geometry errors. If you're worried and the set is new exercise your right to a replacement - you are an unsatisfied customer and deserve as much.
    There is actually a tilt adjustment on each CRT yolk to square the image but I wouldn't venture there. If your next set is similarly skewed, and you are otherwise happy with its performance, a service tech should be able to correct it.
    I'm moving this to the TV Forum.

    From one side to the other there is probably about 1/4" difference. I put a tape measure on the screen and measured each side. I noticed it while watching tv and a commercial displayed a telephone number at the bottom and it was going off the screen.
    Id rather not have to bring it back if I know for sure it will be corrected during an ISF Calibration. On the outer edges I can see the red, green, blue lines. What does that mean. Is that just the convergence off? How much is typical ISF?
    I got it from an electronics retailer at cost.($1,430)
    Obviously I am a Newbie, sorry for so many questions.

    I have a huge window right in front of my tv so the glare is a little annoying even with blinds closed.
    I just took a peek at the convergence grid and I can see that my set needs major calabration. What is the difference between changing convergence and geometry?
