I've posted about my TV woes in the past. The first hitachi 50V715, 3 light engine failures, (warranty covered), got a Toshiba DLP (HM66) instead (returned due to the rainbow effect) and so today they delivered the Hitachi VG825 model. I really like the Hitachi's, from the picture (when it's right) to the sound and figured I'd give them another chance.
I start watching Lord of the Rings, Return of the King on DVD. It's the widescreen version, so when I expand it to fill the entire screen but still had the horizontal black bars, those are expected. What's not expected is that they are TILTED!!! It's about 1/4" to 3/8" from right to left.
I took a pic of MSNBC with the crawl going to better illustrate it. It's in expanded 4:3 mode, (normally the crawl would be half missing), but if you look at the right, you can make out half the letters, while on the far left only the very top of the letters are present. Same thign on the top as well. Uggghhh
Is there a service menu fix on this? Any ideas?
