Re: colour

The CRT shadow-mask may no longer be degaussing, or the shadow-mask in the CRT is defective.

In or near to the power supply there is a thermoresistor that controls the degausser coils. When the set is turned on this thermoresistor gives a momentary high AC current to the degausser coil with a rapid decay for slightly over a period of about 200 ms or 1/5th of a second.

If this thermoresitor is defective, it will have to be changed to resore the degausser coil to work again.

On rare occasions I have had a bad degausser coil that had to be changed. I have also had the shadow-mask in the CRT become defective. The fix for a bad shadow-mask is to change the CRT. This is not feasible for this TV set!

You should get an experienced TV service tech to fix this for you.

Sony wega 28 inch colours wrong, circle on screen

It sounds that there is some magnet near by TV that is affecting picture tube. Please remove any extra speaker or any thing that has strong magnet inside, unplug TV for 20-30 minutes, replug back in, turn it ON, hope that will solve your TV problem.

Television picture colour

This is because you have something emitting an electric magnetic pulse close to the TV. Like a large unshielded speaker or large Battery. First thing you need to do is move anything near the TV away and see if that correct the issue. Next would be to degauss the TV. Unfortunately the TV probably does not have a built in degausser.

A degausser is an electro magnet in a circle. you plug it in and run it around the surface of the TV.

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.

Colour diffusion

Sounds like the picture tube has got itself magnetised. Can be caused by a external magnetic field, maybe the set is too close to a central heating radiator, or you've got too near the set with a vacuum cleaner. Usual cause is a dry jointed degauss element in the TV, should be visible after you've removed the circuit board and had a close look underneath. Just scrape the pins, sometimes two, sometimes three and resolder them to the board. DO NOT ATTEMPT THIS YOURSELF IF YOU ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH TELEVISIONS AND THE ELECTRIC CHARGE THEY HOLD FOR AGES EVEN IF THEY ARE ISOLATED FROM THE MAINS!!
