Please HELP -- bars not straight on widescreen

I have a Sony KV34XBR800, which I just purchased, slightly used. I notice when playing 2.35:1 content, the horizontal bars bow slightly. It's not crazy but enough to get really annoying. Is this "pincushioning?" I have DVD player set to 16:9, and have scrolled through the four picture modes -- same in each case (unless they're cropped completely off screen).

Is there something I can do? I have a calibration disc on order, but would love to nip this with a simple remote control.

Advance thanks for good news or solution.
