Is it time to forklift this monster out?
I'm not completely an expert in projection televisions, but from what i do know about those, it might just be a question of the lenses on the projectors that need to be realigned, or the back mirror plate that has started to phase, warp or just unglue in some cases. So if it is just that then it will cost you a bit less to have it repaired then to buy a new one, but of course if you decide to invest a little more and buyt a new one, i would strongly suggest buying either an LCD TV or a Plasma TV model, as they will cost around the same as a new projection model, if you can find any cause i've heard they are disappearing from the market. Of course though, an LCD model will give a little less warmth and glow to the picture, but will usually cost heaps less for the same screen size, and still deliver something a bit better than the old school HD cathode ray flat screens that came out just before plasma and LCD went in vogue. So it's all a question of how much money you are willing to invest and wether you old TV has sentimental value to you or not, as some people cherish their posessions more than others.
