    Hello All

    My 54in vox may have seen too many hours......i love movies! I first noticed three three small hashes.....2-3 inches long....blue, green and yellow. Later I noticed there seemed to be too much blue ....really shows in dark scenes. Overall......getting a bit of a ghost on the images....but no blurred or double images......just color issues and a haziness.

    I think I can fix this........but not sure what I should be fixing? I have read that the coolant may need to be changed........cleaning the mirrors may help......thought I heard a buzzing sound tonight and I read that may be the bulb....over all, the picture seems darker than it used to be.

    This old beast is a joy to watch........except that it pops fairly often.........picture just blcaks out and snaps back on.......I suspect the analog circuitry cannot handle digital (dish).

    Maybe time to let it die......but if I could do some cost effective repairs.... iwill gladly keep it. Any thoughts on the repair?

    Regards-
