    Hi,

    I have a JVC 32" widescreen TV and the picture is generally okay apart from three things:

    1. Small red objects (e.g. snooker balls at a distance) seem to have black horisontal lines through them.

    2. When looking at Sky via composite or Terrestrial white text seems to have a black shadow behind them which makes them look odd. This is particularly noticable on the BBC weather broadcasts.

    3. On panning blue sky or green/yellow fields I can really notice bright area's on the tube. They seem to be patches of brighter areas and cover a fair amount of the screen. This makes these panning style of shots look very dirty.

    I do have the contrast set fairly high (75%) - the brightness is about 45-50% but I need this to get a picture that is bright enough to see properly as the JVC is a little "dull", especially in the daytime.

    If I get the engineers at JL in to look at it then is there any way they can reduce the bright patches by adjusting the yokes/guns/magnets etc or is it just a "poor" tube that I have to live with (or get replaced). It's not unbearable to watch but if they could imporve it slightly I would be happier. The TV is about 9 months old (got it from JL so 5 yr warranty) which goes to show that it's not that bad but it just p*sses me off sometimes


    Any takers?

    Cheers,

    Paul

    ps. The bright areas are on both the composite and RGB when using sky (and on all other sources - i.e. they are not a problem with the source - definately the tube). Obviously the contrast setting on the JVC does not work with the RGB so to get a watchable picture (i.e. not too dark) I set the contrast on the Sky box to high (I only use RGB with Sky).

    Cheers, P

    My new JVC does exactly the same but with the added additional of case rattle, I'm waiting on John Lewis bringing me a replacement but I am not very hopeful after reading several posts in the forum. This is my 7th widescreen tv, all had different faults, from turning off to blue lines down the picture etc. I am going to try S-video for feeding the DVD and video but this is a work around more than a fix!
