Sony KV-5100

Does anyone with a Sams for this set know if it has a pincushion adjustment? I have a bow inwards on the L/R side. Now I know why tv takes 10 pounds off of you.

Dave, I have the Sony KV-4000 and it doesn't have any pincushion adjustments. I'm wondering if they left out the necessary pincushion circuitry on these smaller micro size tv's. Maybe the 5 inch screen models are the same, but I don't really know.
Sony Trinitron is my favorite brand.
My wish list:
Sony 8-301W
Sony KV-5000
Sony KV-7010U
Sony KV-1210U

I have read here that the 5000 had pincushion correction, but the bean counters omitted it in the 5100.

found it:

I have also noticed that the pincushion correction circuit is missing from the 5100. I didn't realize the 5000 had it. I guess they decided the amount of pincushion distortion was acceptable.

There's a place on the board for the PCC transformer and a few other parts. I've been meaning to try to add the missing parts. I think I have what I need from a Sony 5" professional monitor chassis.
Wanted list:
RCA CTC19 or 27
Sony KV-7010U
