    I have just shagged my TV to the max!
    I wheeled my 810AV past my tv for literally no longer than 2 seconds and the 8 massive magnets have pulled the colours out at all four corners. Now everything I watch looks like a purple tinted dream.

    ****!:scowl:
     
  2. Yep those are some strong magnets aren't they?

    The good news is that it will (usually) work itself out over time.

    Here's a link on How to "DeGauss" your TV screen.

    http://www.buchanan1.net/purple_spot.shtml

    In these cases, what you need is a hand-held degaussing coil. These may be purchased at radio/tv supply places. A shop that sells to TV service shops is your best bet.
     
  13. thats how i get a few monitors now and when

    people leave a magnet near CRT's and then they throw them out

    I pick em up and fix em up

    A lot of newer TV's have degaussers built into them. Check in the menu system.

    I think I just peed a little. Too funny!
     
  16. Just switch it off and leave it for an hour or so, and it should be fine. Shouldnt take too long to sort itself.

    Me and my ampeg are buddies though. He wouldn't have done anything to upset me. I think he's trying to tell me something...
    I think he's telling me I should buy a 1080p full HD 64 incher so we can watch bluray and play PS3 together.
    Now that's a mate.
     
  18. Or, that you should stop watching TV and start playing more.

    :D

    Just a point of view... IMHO...
