Re: my tv don't work
Inside the set is a part, usually a thermistor that kicks in the degaussing coil. That is the part that will clear up any stray magnetic field interference. These parts can fail over time. It sound to me like the thermistor has failed and the degaussing process no longer occurs. This is a $10 part and is usually stocked by any TV service shop. Call around and explain that you need this part replaced to get the least expensive service for this set.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

If your TV is not in Digital it won't give you the tuning option.
Select DTV from the on screen menu, (like scart 1 scart 2 etc). When
you have found DTV select it and then press menu for tuning.
Hope that helps.
ok well "tube" tellys as they are called use an electro magnet to keep the picture stable and colours correct its called gaussing now if you have a speaker or something magnetic nearby it will stuff up the colors but only normally producing colors like purple,green, or white
if you have colors across the screen (that aren't caused by magnetic force) then you need to take it to a repairer or decide wether or not to buy a new one this issue can turn out to be quite hard to fix and can be expensive the different colored electron guns may be burning or burnt out causing pale color or it could be as simple as a power transistor in the H.V supply has shorted out..and causing power issues to the tube.
hope this helps,ben
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.
actually your tv set was placed near object produced magnet especially speakers, used magnet, small one to de-gauss or just like cleaning the the tv screen untill impurity colors gone. need my help....email@example.com
your problem is simple
it is called colour patch.
it is basically due to change in direction or you must have shifted or tilted.
it might be due to magnetic effect like spkr,telephone near by it.just remove from that location.
put of the set for 15 minutes &put it on .problem will get clear.
ask tv tech. to degauss it by dega.coil.it hardly 1 second job.
If you leave your tv in standby try switching it off properly at tv switch leave a few hrs then switch on.
Have you got hifi speakers or anything that is magnetic near tv if yes move it away from set switch set off wait a few hrs then switch on.
Or if the above has not sorted problem the set has a fault with the degause circuit. Its not to bad to repair but you will need to use soldering iron.
