    I've had this TV for a couple months and there are a few things I can't seem to get to work right. First let me describe my setup. I have an HD-DVD rom and BD drive on my HTPC and I have an HDCP video card connected to the tv through HDMI. The TV does not see it as a PC connection and does not give me the option to not overscan. So my question is there something I can change in the service menu or something to fix the overscan problem? It cuts off quite a bit. If I have my desktop set to the TV I don't see the start menu bar or anything really.

    So noone has any advice for me? Is there even a way to adjust overscan? I read a post where someone was able to adjust overscan on an LCD but I can't find any instructions or anything how to do that.

    Humm.  It surprises me that there is so much overscan.  I am sure that there is service menu adjsutment for overscan, but I don't know what it is.

    Yeah.... I'm not sure how to navigate the service menu much. And everything I can get to doesn't seem to be changeable.

    Dougie085,

    Greetings and welcome.

    If you don't find the service manual for your KDS-503000 any cheaper, HERE is a reputible site that has it for $25(US).

    Ok I got the service manual. It just tells you how to adjust the vertical and horizontal center. Doesn't say what all the other adjustments in the service mode do? Is there a way to find out what they all mean?
