    Hello,

    A still blue screen was left on my Techwood TWP 4205 for about 6 hours. I mean a completely blue screen; this happened after I played my camcorder and stupidly, stupidly, forgot to turn the TV off when the tape reached the end.

    Now the picture and colors are all messed up. I don't know if it is burn (there is no ghost logo or anything, but as I said the still picture was a blue screen). Cartoons look ok, particularly the yellow characters in The Simpsons, but anything else looks a little bit like an Andy Warhol art work, with various shades of purple. There are also non-active pixels (purple) in a few places.

    I changed the LVDS cable, to no avail.

    I just don't know if the screen is permanently damaged (in which case I assume calibration wouldn't do anything) or what.

    Any suggestion? Has anybody else had this problem before?

    Thanks.

    Valérie

    Hi

    How do the onscreen menus look?

    Have you tried some different inputs?

    They seem ok, the colors are not 100% right but they are perfectly readable; all the letters are there. One that I think has improved is the one which appears in green small print on the bottom right as you select the desired source. At first you could hardly read it, some letters were missing; now it appears in full and a bit brighter. As a matter of fact I think the whole picture has slightly improved since the problem happened about 2 weeks ago, although it could be just me getting used to it (?).

    Do you mean a different source? The picture is actually worse from both the DVD and the VCR; more shadows and 'funny' colors.

    If that's not what you mean, please explain, I'm not much of a 'techie'!

    Thanks.
