I seem to have a problem with my TV, its a 30HS420 which will be two years old come this christmas.
The problem is my picture is crooked, the whole picture seems to be skewed ever so slightly counter-clockwise. Its not very noticeable except when playing my PS3 as HUD elements will disappear into the lower left and upper right corners, and also the prevalence of horizontal lines in both HUDs and menus make it very obvious.
Is there any way I can fix this without having to pay to have it repaired?
When I had this set I initially had the same problem. I fixed it in one of the menus (server or user, don't remember). If you can't find it in the user menus it'll be under the service one. Just do a quick search in the forums (or google) to find out how to enter the service menu and adjust tilt.
As a side note...
This was my first HDTV. I owned it for a little over three years before upgrading to a KDS-60a3000. I really loved this set. Aside from the initial tilt and overscan issues which I easily fixed with the help of the service menu, it has been a joy to watch. Now it's off to my parent's who are upgrading from their 22" Sylvania or whatever it was. HD material looks fantastic (Sat, HD-DVD, Xbox360) and SD wasn't all that bad. Black was actually black though I think the newer techs have come a long way in fixing said issue. My only complaint with the older tube technology is while it had (still does!) a beautiful picture, it is insanely heavy. I think it was something like 225lbs for the 34" set. My new 60" SXRD is only 90lbs or so...
If you can get passed the bulk, these are great TVs.
