This is a very easy repair belive it or not,and can be done very cheaply by your self if you feel compitant to do it.
By the way please check first that there is no speakers near the tv as this will also cause this problem.
Now take the back off the tv(make sure it is unplugged for 24 hours or so,so you dont risk an electic shock)make sure you have a soldering iron handy and solder,slide the chassis out(circuit board)and in the power section where the power lead goes in from the on/off switch or where the on off switch is you will have a white/black or grey connecter block with 2 wires going to the degausing circuit on the back of the tube,near the connecter block on the circuit board you should see either a small white disc shaped component about half a cm high or a small black square componant about a cm high(proberbly the latter),you will have to turn the circuit board over to unsolder it,normaly this componant will have 2 or 3 pins solderd into the circuit board,simply unsolder and source another part from mapplins or charles hyde etc(should only cost obout 50p for the part)or pop into your local tv repair shop with the part and ask if they have a replacment,when you have sourced the part then simply re-solder in and away you go(make sure if you have had to unplug any leads in the tv that you make a note and re-plug back in the same place.
By the way this part is called a possister or a phemister and is used for degausing the tube.

The pages coming out of the printer have a coloured ink border down each side. Have replaced fuser kit - any ideas?

Yes, most likely the Drum has picked up static charge on the edges so is printing everything with random smears. you can attempt to clean the drum with cottonbuds, but endure that you do not touch any part of the roller as this will make it worse. but I would do it, just to confirm that the drum is the cause. it will improve for a little while, which means it is the drum. then replace the drum with a new one.

Image saves as random purple/ green patterns

Your CCD chip in the camera is defective. There is a lot of information on the web regarding this phenomenon. Here's a link to much of that info,
Note that the info is getting a little outdated now, as this problem has been identified and rectified. It only appeared in cameras that are now about six years old.

Re user manual for JVC GZ-MG57

Hi read my other post.

1) JCV locked file to prevent changes.

2) Download a demo copy of "snagit"

3) Screen capture manual on page at a time, save as JPG.

I have done this already if you send me your email.

4) Drag the 72 jpegs into ABBYY Soft OCR

5) Adjust borders of picture objects and text objects manually as needed.

6) To create a new object just drag a window over the graphic.

7) To edit an object or change its type: Text, Picture, Table, UNknown
just right click on it

8) One you like what you see, save it as a word document.

9) NO you can start translating the text as I told you before.

As I said I have the 72 JPEG files and a less then perfect DOC file,
which I can email to you, probiding the files will fit in your mailbox.
