    Default Toshiba RPTV - Red Tube Gone Funny :(

    Just what I needed at this time of year and it would be just before top gear starts

    Red tube's gone funny as you can see in the pics. Tried to re-align the guns but this is as good as it would get.





    It's also developed another weird fault apparently at the same time, every now and then it turns itself off and the green led on front panel for sleep timer(?) flashes - haven't noticed any patterns in how/when it turns off.

    Anyone got any ideas what it could be and how much to fix?

    If it's gonna be reasonably cheap/easy I'll happily diy or pay for someone but no point throwing silly money at this old thing. However getting repair guy round probably won't be likely so I thought I would see what df's opinion was so at least by the time repair people are ready, I know what I'm doing.

    (Before everyone starts shouting "buy a plasma" just because it's currently the done thing, it nicely fills up a space in the room and perfectly served it's purpose before it died).

    Also sorry for posting here rather than home entertainment, but that section's been killed by the bot.

    I had a similar thing like this when i plugged in my xbox360 to my Sony 50" rear projection
    fixed it by going into the engineers menu and moving Reg R / Reg G / Reg B up 1 piont from 10 to 11....

    Not sure with your tv as i don't have that but does look very similar to the same situation i had but wasn't as bad as yours though...
