Clouds in my TV

For Christmas I got a Brand New UMC HDTV, and it seemed to be working fine but lately when I play my Xbox 360 (Elite); I get purple/pink random clouds flowing around my screen. I thought it may have just been the game but it happens with all games, DVD's (TV-DVD Combi), and anything, it really distracting and I cant return it because it came from Makro. The TV's contrast is 700:1 and I didnt know what that meant in HD so I set my Xbox to 1080i and 60hz ( the TV box did not state what hz it was) - please help as replacing the TV or sending it of for repairs is not an option.

Hi it seems that the colour gun has gone faulty or the equivelent in an lcd tv. I purchased my umc from makro & I have never had any problems returning anything. As long as it is within the 12 month warranty. If 28 or more days have passed, contact makro or UMC & get an RMA number & you can get it replaced or refunded.

After watching HDTV the tv will not switch back on when left for a few hours.

i'm afraid i have no solution for you, but i thought it might help to know that i have the same problem, mine will sometimes take up to half an hour to turn on, while i have to sit and listen to the clicking sound, and watch the power led flash on and off! YOU ARE NOT ALONE!! sorry i couldn't help though.
