    I didn't know where to put this, so sorry if it's in the wrong place.

    I have a new TV (Bush, if it makes a difference), and also a new sub, I have had the sub next to the TV for around a week, noticed a blue colouring in the bottom corner, so I took it away, but now its worse, and slightly more green.

    Am I stuck with this forever? Or is there a way to fix it?

    thanks.

    Sounds like a purity error caused by the TV acquiring unwanted magnetism.
    Switch the TV off at the mains for an hour (so that it completely cools down) i.e. unplug it.
    When you switch it back on you should hear the "thump" of its degausser kicking in for a second or so.
    Half a dozen cycles of this may clear it. Otherwise, you may need to buy or rent a degaussing coil/wand or have an engineer come out with one.
    For more info on this, search this section of the forums for words like "degauss", "degaussing", "demagnetising" etc.

    Hello Robeebee and welcome to the Forum. :)

    Sounds like you have a classic case of impurity! :eek:

    Don't worry, it's not fatal but I bet you won't make the same mistake again!

    If you switch on from cold several times, the degaussing circuit should gradually clear it.

    If not, then a manual degaussing by a technician is required.

    The only alternative is the famous hair-dryer trick! ;)

    ( No, it's not just a Bush TV that does this. All CRT TV's are affected, but not Plasma or LCD.)
