    Hi,

    Just taken delivery of a new TV, but I noticed on white sources that there is an obvious pink/red tinge to all 4 corners of the screen.

    Is this a fault with the tube?

    I want to return the TV, since to my eyes this is a fault but I don't want a replacement. Can the online supplier "force" me to accept a repair, replacement or can I simply request a full refund?

    Don't use standby use the on/off switch - this will degauss the screen

    Yeah, I tried that but the pink tinge is there all the time. It's been like this ever since it was switched on :(

    Sorry, no. The TV is boxed away and I'm about to contact the supplier to arrange to have it returned.

    Not much to say other than on anything with a white background, the corners show a pink'ish tinge to them. You can't see it on dark pictures, just anything white/bright enough to show the poor colourisation.

    Could be something as simple as magnatized screen,some on off cycles(cold) would could cure it. I've just had an HQ100 that suffered from poor colour purity,degauss and all was fine........

    ....or it could be a nearby magnetic object - loudspeaker, central heating radiator. It's very difficult with a large CRT to avoid this type of effect.

    Nope, not near anything magnetic I'm afraid as it's right in the corner of a large room. It's been switched off 3-4 times in the one day I've had it and it still shows the pink tinges.

    My folks have a Panny widescreen and it doesn't suffer from this. I know somethings can't be avoided on large TV's, but I ain't paying almost £1000 for a dodgy screen.

    It also has a really annoying buzz when switched on, although you can't hear it if the volume is turned up :(
