Your screen mask may have become magnetized. This will require that you have the CRT degaussed. This is done with the use of a degaussing coil. you have to stand about 10 feet from the TV with the coil held vertically and moving it in a circular pattern as you walk towards the tv. Once you are about 1-2 inches from the TV stop and continue the circular pattern for about a three count then backup from the tv still using the circular motion once you are about 10 feet from the tv turn the coil to a horizontal plane and move it away quickly and turn it off. This should degauss the TV and remove the color distortion.

You will need a degaussing coil to perform this task.

    Hello,



    A degaussing coil can cost fro $49.00 - $60.00 depending on the one you buy. The cost of having a person Degauss your TV is from $100.00 to $250.00 depending on their house call policy.



    Just to give you an example, at my shop I charge $60.00 for the degaussing and $40.00 per 20 mile radius for the house call so the base price is $100.00 + $40.00 for each additional 20 miles I have to drive. One customer lived in Sterling Va which is 52 miles from my shop. They ended up paying $180.00. This will give you an idea of the possible cost to you, for someone to come out.



    Now to defer this cost you could take your TV into a shop, this will end up being about $60.00 - $80.00.



    I hope this helps,

    Thank 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.
Thanks.

I think the video cable for my xbox is messed up. Why does it keep showing up these little circle things? Whenever I turn on my xbox it doesn't come up anything but a black screen with little circles...


NOT HD: Make sure red goes to red, white on white, and yellow on yellow, also make sure the switch that is on the xbox wire plug says TV not HD.

HD TV: Make sure red on red, white on white, yellow on yellow, blue on blue, green on green, etc. Also make sure the switch that is on the xbox wire plug says HD not TC

Bush tv has a circle on screen like looking thru a telescope


HELLO

Funnily enough I have been given a 21 inch standard Bush set with the same problem!

It's a DEGAUSSING fault. This means the deguss circuit in the TV is not operating as it should - probably a faulty positor. When you switch the TV on (NOT FROM STANDBY) the circuit that removes magnetism from the screen does not work correctly.

Switch it off, unplug the set from the mains for 30 minutes or so and try it again. If there is no change, contact a TV repair centre.

Make sure there are no hifi loudspeakers next to the TV or a radiator as this can have an effect too.

ALL THE BEST! (:-)

Incorrect Tv colours


Hello Roloi,

This sounds like a problem with your yoke transformer. I would suggest having a qualified TV technician work on this problem, because it involves testing a component that could have dangerous current in it.

I hope this helps,

I have a hitachi projection tv that has yellow areas on the screen. tv repair guy says it is the engine. does this make sense? in checking tv repair on line it seems to me to be the projection lamp. does...


When tv has a blue or red or yellow circle in middle of screen and it is very faint looking in most cases it is the light engine.
The cost is 650,00 plus labor. In some cases it could be the color wheel. but rear .
The lamp is not the problem

Image has big yellow


Hi Zenmast

This is a burnt LCD that will need replacement. If the circle is yellow on a white screen , then it is your blue LCD that will need replacement.
