    If the geometry is out on my TV will it make the picture look bad in terms of colure etc. The picture on the new tube in my TV looks like a banana. God knows how it ever got out of the repair shop.

    It shouldn't no, it'll just have bends in odd places! If you're having problems with colour/dark patches etc. you may have purity errors which may require an engineer to degauss the tube to clear it.

    look at a straight line moving across the picture(eg...Football pitch)...on my old tv,the geometry was out and any straight line would appear to have a bend or kink in it.

    It's not getting any better. The TV was returned this Friday after having a new tube fitted because the last one had a very bad red tinge to it. The new tube seems to have its geometry way out, a letter box picture is noticeably bowed from left to right. And now the light in the room is down I can see the screen has a very green tinge to it now.

    Why are you not raising this with them ? Advise that you are unhappy and you're not prepared to accept the repair and get it sorted.
