    you might get a better response in the television forum as this forum is for dlp rear pro and your set is crt rear pro,
    however I just found this review of your set...

    quote...

    "Standing up near the set reveals a weird rainbow of colours at the bottom of the screen, caused by the three colour beams from the picture tubes. I've not seen this effect on other rear projection sets, and can only assume it's caused by the angle of the projector being made too acute in an effort to reduce the depth of the TV cabinet (just 406.5mm). To be fair I couldn't spot the colour beams when watching from a normal viewing angle, but I couldn't help but wonder if the acuteness of the projection angle wasn't at least partly to blame for some of the convergence problems"

    unquote.
