Image shifting/sliding?

I'm having an interesting thing happen with my Samsung PN50B650. The image seems to shift/slide down and to the right. This causes a semi-thin black bar at the top and left of the image.

This happens in 16x9 mode, though I haven't tested in other modes. It happens with both digital cable and Blu-ray/DVD viewing. It doesn't happen all the time, and it isn't limited to specific channels and/or Blus/DVDs.

I can fix the anamoly by changing the picture size, rotating it all the way back to 16x9.

I had someone come out to take a look at it and he said it's normal and it's just image/source scanning. Thing is, I've never had this happen before, and am suspecting something happened to my TV during a recent move.

Anyone know what's going on, or any suggestions?

When does it 'shift'? During playback or viewing or is it a fixed or constant line once the set is turned ON? If you have an alternate HDMI cable, I'd try that. I have the same set and have not had an issue such as yours. Pics?

It shifts during normal viewing. I'll try a different HDMI cable, but I'm house sitting right now for my 'rents, so it'll be a while.

I don't have any pics, but it happens over a course of about 3 minutes. Basically: I'm watching whatever I'm watching, and over the course of 3 minutes, the top and left sides of the image seems to move/slide down and to the right; or the screen somehow forms black lines.

Like I said, it can be temporarily remedied. But I'll try a different HDMI cable. Thanks!

I am also having this problem on my Samsung P2370HD. In my case the image shifts about at random intervals. Sometimes it'll stay stationary for a few minutes, sometimes it'll shift more than once a second.

No setting in the menus seems to have any affect. It has been this way since I bought it. I don't want to have it serviced if there is any way to fix it myself.

Any ideas?
