Can anyone help me? I have had this t.v. for about 4 years now about 6 months ago we began having trouble with the picture.. The best way i can explain it when you first turn on the tv you get a lot of horizontal lines which gradually clear up, then the picture becomes out of focus. It is though your watching it in double vision as i am sitting here now watching the England game, as your looking at it there is 2 half way lines. Any helpful suggestions would be appreciated. :thumbsup::lease:

:lesson::lesson::lesson: Jesus, I don't believe this, I've got the 42" version of exactly the same TV and was going to post today as I'm having EXACTLY the same problem... I thought it was my SKY box... but then I noticed it on my DVD player as well... it's like all the lines are out of sync, which slowly disappears over 5 minutes maybe sooner, but the picture is never 100% after this... it's clear, but NOT quite what it was... I've had this problem for about a week and bought my TV when the Euro Champs were on so that's what? 2005? So it's 3 and a bit years old...

Any help... would REALLLYY be appreciated as well. :lease::lease::lease:

Don't know about you mate, but mines getting worse now... when I turn on the TV, it's taking around 3-4 minutes to get a picture that is even watchable :confused: Wonder what the hell this is as it's never going right now... even an hour later... noticed little ziggy zaggies on the roof of a DVD I was watching and on a mountain range... so looks like it's on the way out :oops::boring:

Hi,this problem gets progressively worse my TV takes about 30mins to warm up now,I did speak to a TV engineer and he seemed to think it was a scan converter,he told me it would cost £120 to fix which i accepted, however after numerous phone to him he still hasn't been to fix it!!!

I still have no luck in finding out what the issue is..............im still on the hunt tho! But £120 I wouldnt say is a bad price.................ask yourself if someone knocked on your door and offered you the same model TV for £120 would you buy it or not...............sounds stupid but it does have some sense to it. If not, buy a new TV, if you would get the bad boy fixed.
