Re: Apparent damage to TV screen

There is another method that is more fun...
you need a drill and some magnets.. the magnets need to be somewhat big..

first, you put some long point to the drill, and on that long point, you STRONGLY TIE OR GLUE the magnets to the tip...

then point at the screen with it and shoot for a few secodns...

the screen will look like if its on acid, and it will be fixed.. ill see if i can find a video so you can see better..

Re: Apparent damage to TV screen

Your screen was magnatized.. try unpluging the set then plugging it back on serval times. turn it off and on but wait a min before turning it back on. each time.. Most tv have a special coil around the tube the demagnatizes the tube.. otherwize you can use a what is know as deguasser.

Both the the left and right have large color blobs, more intence at times, shows more on blk/white

There is a degaussing resistor that activates when tv is first turned on and purifies the screen so there is no color contamination, sometimes it will become defective or develope bad connections on the circuit board. The part looks like a box "black/green" and is located near the power cord. If it has stopped working it would explain the color blotches. To fix it! the part needs to be replaced or resolded back on the board and a degaussing coil used to give it the once over, tv tech carries one just for that purpose. The other possibility is if speakers are to close to the viewing screen the magnet will leave blotches and must be degaussed to correct it.

TV has color bloches at corners

Assuming this is a tube style TV (not lcd flatscreen) your degausing coil in your TV sounds like it is defective . The Degaussing coil on newer televisions / monitors surrounds the outside edge of the TV and turns on when the TV is fired up. In the old days, their used to be no degaussing coil - when a child would take a magnet to a CRT television, magnetism would remain on the tube and cause discoloration and blotches as you describe (multi-colored blotches) To correct this a technician used to use a degausassing coil and perform a circular pattern on the screen to remove the improper magnetized area. Since the old days, newer tvs have degauss coils built into them, but if they go bad, or always on etc... they can cause the problem you describe.

Screen is filled with a circular Red/Green/Blue pattern

The problem will be with the de-gausing circuit, this de-magnetises the tube when the set is switched on from cold, this is a fault you will need to get an engineer to look at ie, not a D.I.Y repair.

Blue screen and red padlock

It sounds to me like a child lock function, which is usually what the screen + padlock is on TVs. Usually your original remote would have a button / sequence to unlock the mode. If you still have your original remote, look for a child lock button or refer to your remote manual (and/or TV manual for the child lock feature) to unlock the mode.
