Strange colours on television

I have a hitachi and today I have started getting strange bands of bright colour on the screen. Is it just packing up? I have tried altering all the settings and checking all the connections.

    The colours are all over the screen, it almost looks like a kids painting, with bands of colour over the screen, not in a straight line.

What do you mean by 'strange colors'? Is it colour patches at the corners and edges of the picture? If that is the case, it is asimple case of Degaussing or Demagnetisation. You need to do nothing, The internal degaussing circuits will sort out the problem over the next 2-3 days. Just make sure you have not placed any equipment with magnets or any magnetic source near your Tv (Speakers, Boob Boxes, Walkie Talkies, etc.

Does old transmission fluid cause slipping

It most definitely will. IT contains contaminates that restrict the movement of valves and will restrict the actuation of the clutch pack faces and bands . The oil should be a bright cherry red colour to be good . If it is tan or honey in colour and smells burnt it will need a change any way. If that is the case have an accredited auto transmission shop do the job as it will require a cleaning of the filter inside the box and while the pan is off it will be a good move to check the band and clutch pack adjustment.

The colour on my tv screen has gone strange it is now circles of bright colours can this be fixed?

On a CRT this means that the tube has been magnetized - usually by speakers placed too close. First of all just remove all magnets (or transformers) from its vecinity. Next use the demagnetizer that every single tube in the world has: shut down the tv for 10 minutes, start it for 10 minutes - this forces the demagnetizer thru a cycle. Repeat as many times (usually less than 4) as necessary.
