    There are no speakers next to the TV and turning it off at the main wall socket does not work either :(

It seems that it is a degaussing problem. TV sets have a degaussing coil that when the TV is turned on , it automatically demagnetizes the screen. Never place any speakers or anything magnetic near or on top of your set. if you see swirls of color and like you say, wierd colors, it is that the screen is magnetized. Turn it on and off with the switch. Not the remote control. The degaussing coil only works by manually turn the switch on and off.

I got the same tv and the same problem. What i have done is get a soldering iron, switch it on and the tv then go round the screen with it and you will see the colours start to shift about, it hasnt totaly solved it but has improved it a great deal. Don't put the hot tip on the screen though, just hold it sideways on next to the screen.

Bush TV set up colours look like looking through night vision lenses.


Try to reset the unit to factory default settings.
If the TV is under any kind of warranty, return it while you can.
Also, without knowing what kind of TV, Plasma, ect. it is had to pin point your problems.

Hope this helps

This sounds like a purity fault due to a magnetic build up, you will need to call out a service engineeer to have the TV de-gaussed firstly, which is a simple process. If this does not cure the fault, then the internal circuit for de-magnetising maybe a problem. The worst outcome can be the tube is at fault & would need replaced.

Thank you for your reply. I have since had my TV repaired by a local engineer. The TV needed a new part to restore the colour.

Bush tv has a circle on screen like looking thru a telescope


HELLO

Funnily enough I have been given a 21 inch standard Bush set with the same problem!

It's a DEGAUSSING fault. This means the deguss circuit in the TV is not operating as it should - probably a faulty positor. When you switch the TV on (NOT FROM STANDBY) the circuit that removes magnetism from the screen does not work correctly.

Switch it off, unplug the set from the mains for 30 minutes or so and try it again. If there is no change, contact a TV repair centre.

Make sure there are no hifi loudspeakers next to the TV or a radiator as this can have an effect too.

ALL THE BEST! (:-)

Help,colour is wrong


Hi. The problem is either the degaus positor has failed which is an easy repair. Or have you recently placed hifi speakers or something with a strong magnet in side near your tv set.
