    Anyone know how I can adjust the picture width on my LG 32inch widescreen
    tv.. is it a matter of taking the back off or is there a hidden service menu
    (its an RI-32CZ10RX)..

    Thanks in advance for any help...

    Other than using the picture mode controls on the remote the settings would
    be through a setup menu with access via a Factory Setup Code. This
    information may ge found in their available service literature fron the
    company.

    They don't seem too keen to give me this information. I contacted LG and
    they gave me the name of 2 local repair shops. 1 didn't want to know and the
    other wanted to charge 65ukp... I would like to avoid this if it's simply an
    adjustment required... which I guess it is...

    Does anyone know where I might find these codes? (have searched web etc...)

    Bryan !
    Has this TV got a problem ,like has the width got bigger over time
    or you simply want to reduce the overall size of the width.
    Because making those types of adjustments could screw up
    the overall linearity of the picture especially if the TV has a fault.

    I think the picture width has always been too wide (when on 16:9)... I
    always assumed it was a mis-match between my cable box or something.. but on
    closer investigation it also happens with DVD etc..

    I guess I am loosing about an inch, or slightly less (I sometimes loose the
    first letter of a title that is left justified)..

    It's out of the 12mth warranty now!

    Service mode for some LG TV's:

    With the TV turned on, press "MENU" in the front panel and "MENU" in the remote
    control, at the same time.

    I don't know exactly about your TV but it is worth a try.

    Bryan..Try this


    Using the television's remote control:

    Turn the TV on. Hold down the [MENU] key on the remote until the menu clears
    or "Welcome to Zenith" appears then release the [MENU] key and within two
    (2) seconds hit the following five keys:

    [9], [8], [7], [6], [ENTER]

    -or-
    [9], [8], [7], [6], [DISPLAY]

    You will now have access to the service menus.

    [MENU] = Toggles between two menu pages
    [UP], [DOWN] cursor = selects the item for adjustment
    ,
    cursor = varies the value
    [POWER] = exit service mode and saves any adjustments made

    The items are appropriately captioned and the ones of interest should be
    easily spotted.

    Thanks for both replies, my TV does not have a menu button on the front
    panel, and if I hold down the menu key the menu simply remains on the TV
    (Have held for about 50secs, I guess something would have happend sooner
    than that)...

    Anyone any other ideas to save me taking this to the repair shop?

    Thanks in advance

    There's either a service menu adjustment, or a pot inside, to adjust
    overscan. You should have a copy of Video Essentials handy, or
    something with an overscan pattern. You should use at least 5%
    overscan, if you don't want to see black borders on some programming.

    You should look into contacting the ISF to have a tech come to your
    house to adjust all parameters of your TV, rather than a repair shop.
