    My television set has shadows at the side of the screen. It is a JVC AV32WFT1.

    These are roughly where the vertical black bars would be if you were watching a 4:3 broadcast on a widescreen TV.

    The shadows are there on all inputs (DVD, STB etc.).

    It is most noticable on programs where most of the screen is the same light colour - for example a lot of snow or pale blue skies.

    I've tried degaussing the TV (unplugging it for a while and then plugging it back in) but this didn't have any effect.

    Does anyone have any ideas what this is and how I can fix it?

    Thanks

    Sounds similar to a common Philips problem! Check the sticky at the top to read about the Philips TVs, didn't realise that JVCs suffer too.

    Sorry if I confused you but it wasn't actual "shadows" on the television but dark patches on the side of the screen.

    Anyway, I left it in to get fixed and they tried replacing the capacitor on it but that didn't fix it. Now they're going to replace the whole tube.

    Makes me glad I bought that insurance for it now!
