    Thanks to all in advance for your help!

    I just purchased a used KV-36FS100 from a gentleman, and I viewed the tv, movie cable channel, and dvd output while he had it at his place and it all looked fine.

    After we moved it to my house last night, with minimal jarring, the picture is generally fine, but when you put it on a movie channel (digital cable box coming in over coax to tv) or put in a dvd over component OR regular composite VGA/RCA, if it is letterbox/widescreen format, the picture bends as it gets close to the edges of the screen.

    Ive tried this with two different dvd players, two diff sets of component cables, as well as Y-R/W composites.

    Did we screw something up?  I've got a sony authorized guy coming on Monday, but would love to try some other things myself this weekend.

    Thoughts?

    Welcome to Agoraquest!  What you are seeing could be the result of changing the N-S directional orientation of the set.  The convergence settings needed are effected by the earth's gravitational forces.

    I have the exact same issue, exact same model (having picked up a recent used version of this TV). The edges of letter box bend downward.

    I have a copy of the service manual, and it does not appear that any of the geometry settings will fix this (HPIN and LPIN only seem to hit the corners) If it truly is the earth's field (the plane that the face of the TV is in runs north-south), is there any way to counter it?

    How do you deguass one of these?

    btw,
    You meant "magnetic" forces, right?

    If gravity is bending the electron beam, we have bigger issues.

    Sorry!  My bad!  Believe it or not, picture tubes designed for use in the northern hemisphere will not work properly in the southern hemisphere and visa versa.
