    You've been conned - the change will happen straight away.

    Try moving the loud speakers closer/nearer to the screen and see if you can spot a difference.

    Also do a search in the forum for this there have been alot of posts!

    Thanks.

    I always do a search before I post and I found a post I remembered a while back about splodges. They all mention the speakers, and degausing wands.

    So I knew and tried things already I just wanted to know about these Purity magnets.

    I'm well peed off with the Engineer though as they installed and set up a new tube for my tv and it came back with this error of splodge in the corner top left and right and also a bowing picture towards the bottom right. I have not been able to correct the bow through the service menu either.

    Really annoys me all this crap I have had with my TV been. This whole tube and now this fiasco has been going on 6 months.

    Is it possible they screwed up the convergence on the installation of the set?

    Thanks.

    Dave.

    I take it that the TV is under warranty and that these guys are the monkeys they sent to fix it!?

    If so demand a new one - I believe (without being sure) that you have the right to demand either your money back or a replacement set within six months of your purchase (three months for private sales) if your product isn't to the standards you expexted when you purchased it.

    On another note I've had magnetic field problems and to my amazment it was the dvd player!


    Have a look at http://www.penders.cwc.net/otcolour.html

    Hey all.

    An engineer decided to put a purity magnet in my TV to get rid of a stain in the top right as a wand could not do it.

    The magnet has not done the job, does it take time or was I conned?

    Thanks.

    Dave.

    Thanks John.

    Sadly the TV is 2 years old but Sony helped me out nonetheless with the tube.

    I have got the monkey engineers round on Monday to have another look.

    All this business really puts me off of Homecinema sometimes I rarely have a troublefree setup.
