Wondering if there are service menus to get into to adjust/tweak picture on this unit.

I notice vertical "waves" of distortion about 1/3 in from each side - noticeable when panning across a fairly uniform picture such as a wall or field. I think this is a glass distortion, but want to see if I can tweak it a bit.

Good, cheap, easy - pick any two.

When I received my Sony KV-28FD1E three A1 sized schematic diagrams were inside the package along with the user manual.

The electronic service mode can be entered by pressing two buttons at the same time while the TV is in standby. In my case the program buttons plus(+) & minus(-). The service mode has following menu's:

- adjustment menu with 52 parameters
- deflection control menu with 56 parameters
- deflection sub-adjustment menu with 87 parameters

I "only" had to center my 4:3 picture but it took me over one hour to find the parameter and adjusting by learning by doing. I always noted the parameter values so that I could set them back to "default" if I couldn't get what I wanted.

It probably would be best for you to ask a very good technician. Don't touch a running system ;)

Added: I don't feel comfortable posting these link's but I guess your old enough to know what you are doing ;)
