I've got a Wega KV-36FS16, and have had an absolute ball tweaking and calibrating it to a fare-thee-well. It's a great set for my current needs. I've hopped into service mode and disabled red push, killed off SVM, and generally I'm satisfied with the picture I'm getting. However, there're two bits of distortion that refuse to go away, and before I go to the trouble of grabbing a service manual from Sony, I wanted to know if these are even fixable from the service menu. First is what I've heard called "flag-waving" distortion, or a narrow vertical band of the raster image (about 15% of the way in from the left edge of the screen) that seems to be more densely populated with horizontal pixels than the rest of the image. It's most obvious with horizontal information tickers (Fox's NASCAR ticker is a good example) and slow horizontal pans. While detail is crossing this vertical band, it's horizontally compressed, thus the feeling of dipping into and out of the fold in a waving flag. This is very weird, especially since it's off-center, and I'm worried that it's not due to any adjustable parameter. Has anyone ever fixed this one from the service menu? Second is horizontal pincushioning at the corners of the display. Vertical lines near the left and right edges of the screen bow visibly inwards before exiting the top or bottom of the screen. I'm more optimistic here because I've seen this adjustment on other CRTs, but have yet to find it in Wega's service mode. Thanks, -Rich ------------------ Technophilia is like hemophilia...
