I've read through a number of threads here and am getting the impression that these sammys can provide a great picture once the bad factory settings are beaten into shape. I've noticed 3 problems with my TXN2745FP:
1) I have the vertcial grey stripe in the middle, but that seems to be limited to only composite inputs, and so far only the one on the side, so that's not much of a concern.
2) I have some geometry bowing outward on the sides that I need to go into the service menu and fix.
3) The biggest problem that is bugging me is color convergence. Very bright reds have a red shadow on the right, and very bright blues have a blue shadow on the left. I read on one post to set the COL AXIS to 0, but I do not have that setting anywhere in any of the service menus. Is this correctable? Which settings should I adjust to fix it?
I picked up this TV at Circuit City so I can still take it back for something else if I can't get it figured out. Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated.
