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.

Re: strange colours on television

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.

Red colour appearing on screen

Your tv could have one of several faults. None of which are to be tackled by anyone except a qualified engineer due to the electric shock hazard.the first problem could be the crt (tube) the second could be the componets on crt base circuit board ie resistors or ic.
With a tv 9 years old it may not be economical to carry out a reair.

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.

between image controls, (contrast-brightness-colour), Check the "colour" setting. should be near the middle of it's way.

if an automatic scan was performed before the event, please start it again, but assure proper country selection when asked (or better, check if there is a country selection menu and have it set to your country BEFORE starting the autoscan.
