    Woke up this morning and suddenly my TV has gone to this:


    [​IMG] [​IMG]



    What the hell is this and how do i fix it? Does it need degaussing?

    It is 14 months old and I have spoken to Hyperfi where I bought it and they have said to turn it off for a few hours and then back on and there should be a big click and it should then be okay. Sadly this has not worked yet - still like the above mess!

    I dont have any unshielded speakers near it - its been the same setup since i bought it. However last night i charged up my nikon camera battery using a socket near the left of the tv and on the right side left my paper fax machine (unplugged and not used)!

    Any help gratefully received!

    Never a good idea to watch your TV outside in the rain. Sunshine and showers always cause this affect. :D :rotfl:

    Only it being a Sony means no shadow mask doesn't it?

    Sorry was in a less than humourous mood.

    Have now scheduled to laugh at your joke subject to it being humourous - dont hold your breath! :D
