    please do! I am in a similar situation although not quite so unlucky. I think my geometry is tweakable via the service menu (after a bit of a run-in period). I certainly don't have a purple patch. Sounds like you need a degauss

    did you call Samsung or Empire? I'm just wondering who is coming. At least it won't be Mastercare! they won't do any tweaking

    the guys came from empire direct ,they took one look at the purple patch and they said they could make the patch dissapear with a special tool they have, but because it was only a week old they asked me if i wanted if fixing ,and i said no way ,so they said they would report it as needing a replacment ,they said which i had allready guessed that the magnetic shielding on the speaker on the right was to blame, so as it stands now i will wait for them to get there report of to empire direct and ring them tommorow wednesday for a replacment this saga could run and run i will keep you posted PS Dfour english is my native tongue it is just that i'm a crap letter writer and speller

    What would make the shielding breakdown after 1 week?? I take it that it must be an electrically driven item rather that just a big chunk of lead plate?

    Was within a nats c*ck of ordering one of these after recent threads that the new batch appeared to be OK, but have decided to wait a little bit longer.

    Sounds to me as that was just an excuse and they haven't a clue...magnetic shielding can't breakdown...it's more likely to be a faulty shadowmask within the crt.

    could it have been damaged shielding right from the manufacturing, because with only having it for less than a week it might have been there right from the start.
