Question about Toshiba 53HX71 53" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

2 Answers

1/2 the screen is blurry

When I turn on my television, the top half of the screen is blurry and the images are red and green. It also is distorting the picture making everything look doubled. The bottom half of the picture is fine. Any suggestions?
