    Folks,

    like a bad rash, i'm back. I was quite happy with my latest Sony (the fs76), until i noticed something quite annoying. Around the area where the trinitron lines exist, 2 shadows exist left to rige and about 2 inches thick.

    You can only see these if the image on screen pans up or down. If anyone had tiger woods on the ps2 or anything similar, then they should be able to see it.

    Could everyone check for me to see if their sets have this problem. My worry is that i got this set way back at the begining of November so unbeatable may not replace the set for me.

    ANy help would be great guys

    ta

    Bill

    they are exactly where the trinitron lines appear. So about 5 inches from the top of the screen running left to right and about 7 inches from the bottom of the screen running left to right.

    So two lines across the screen.

    Hope this helps

    I can't say I've noticed such issues. Let me know any other ways to reproduce and I can take a look too.

    No, all flat trinitron screens have them - its a neccessary evil.

    Im amazed you haven't noticed them, i know many people who returned their TVs / Monitors thinking this was a fault.

    The dark sides on a tosh are more like the dirty screen effect found on most large screens these days. My Sony also suffers from this effect.

    ive spent the last couple of days visiting friends and secretly checking out there sony tvs :eek:) and after viewing very carefully 6 different sony widescreen tvs i still havent managed to spot these
    trinitron lines and normally i can spot a fault miles away .
    Im intrigued about these lines as i have owned a few sony tvs and never seen these before.

    The lines are not a fault. They are part of the trinitron design. You can see them more easily on Trinitron monitors. I've not noticed them on my tv.

    i have just recieved my FS76 from techtronics. couple of queries for those who already have the set.

    first prob was a magnet type discolour in the top right.. only noticable on white screens like in ice age but seems to have died down.

    second prob is on toy story1/2 i noticed when i brought up the THX menu's the actual menu itself was about 1inch over to the left, and when i played the dvd's on a friends 33inch toshiba the THX menu was seated in the middle perfectly.

    third prob is again noticable on the THX menu's. the parrelel lines that make up the "menu box" are distorted, but again fine on the Toshiba.

    my speakers are Definative bp2004's which have the subs in, could this be a cause? even though the speakers are about 4ft from the TV
