It appears the Panasonic factory didn't want to spend the time fine tunning the TV geometry and simply adjusted the horizontal and vertical sizes to hide the geometry imperfections thus creating the overscan.
It took about an hour but I went thru all the setting, recorded the defaults, and messed around with every setting with the TV tuned into the weather station that has lines and circles (suns) to use as a guide etc.
I can't say I got the set perfect but its better than it was when it came from the factory. It took adjusting quite a few items because each one adjusts geometry in a specific area (top, bottom, corners, middle etc.) and it wasnt as easy as adjusting a computer monitor. All in all the setting I adjusted were:
V-C, V-S, H-WID, SIDE, TRAP, BTMG, TOPG, PCCLG, PCC. aS STATED PREVIOUSLY i USED v-RAS and VE-AMP but found V-S and V-C to make those adjustments redundant.
Well lets see how these settings sit with my eyes for now.
P.S. Ther is a shortcut to the service menu as stated. Hold down the volume loweing button at the TV set and hit recall 3 times fast on the remote then power off at the remote.
