    Hi

    Anyone knowledgable about TV’s?

    I have a 52″ Sony bravia TV, it is about 8 yrs old. When I switch it on the left 2/3 of the screen is clear but the colour is all wrong. The right 1/3 is out of focus. If I change channels the right side stays on the previous channel and out of focus. After about 5 mins it corrects itself and is fine for as long as I leave it on. Has anyone any idea what could be causing this?. I am reluctant to call an engineer out on a set that old and I am afraid if I renew one component it will cause another to fail shortly after. The TV was a demonstator when I bought it and I tend to have my TV on all day rather than keep switching it on and off so it has done well but maybe it is time to think about a new one, just would prefer to wait till the new year before spending that sort of money.  If it will carry on as it is I can live with that for the moment. :unsure:

    I wouldn’t worry about it going kaput over Christmas, John, what with the cr*p that’s usually on at this time.

    John – I have had a TV and an expensive Hi-Fi repaired by Phil Haigh. He knows his stuff, doesn’t charge a fortune, and doesn’t charge for diagnosing the problem. He is a pukka electronics engineer and a nice bloke as well!

    Lives at Le Gouray 22330 – a bit of a way for you but at least he’ll fix it if it can be fixed.

    Sadly Fitter, I think you’ll find that Phil has hung up his soldering iron and packed up his multimeter

    That’s a blow – what happened? Did he go back to the UK?

    You’ve got a soldering iron and a multimeter :yes:

    I wish it was that simple FC. definately the TV. Thanks for the replies. It doesn’t seem to be getting any worse so I guess it is a case of let it develop.

    All my friends seem to be away over Christmas this year so may be spending more time watching my TV than usual. :-(
