    I bought a 36" tv a couple months ago and have some Purity problems with it in the corners, I believe it MAY be affected by my speakers.
    I moved the front speakers out about 1.5 feet from the tv but I have no other place to put my center channel speaker except for on top of the tv which may be causing the purity problem.

    Where else could i put the center channel speaker?

    Well ontop of the TV or below the TV is usually the desired area. Any other place wouldn't really be ideal as it would then sound as if it weren't coming from where the person was talking unfortunatly.

    Are you saying your center channel is causing distortion in your TV picture? Center channels should be magneticly sheilded well. If that is the case, I would consider fixing or replacing the center.

    Why don't you take the speaker away and see if the problem persists? If it is the center channel causing the distortion it is defective and should be replaced or repaired.

    sounds weird but true.

    I really don't understand how you are able to adjust your TV, because I believe that the magnet in the center channel is not adequately shielded and is causing your problem. I would remove the center Speaker for a few days and see if your problem doesn't dissapear. It might take a day or so for your picture tube to return to normal if this was indeed the cause. Good Luck

    i can adjust the tv through the menu. It has a purity adjustment.
    a couple times at night when i adjusted it, i would wake up in the morning and it would look like crap again.

    strange but true.

    Could a subwoofer too close to a tube cause a bad picture?
    I have also heard to not have a computer sub real close to the monitor

    What the heck is a "purity" adjustment!??!?

    Why do TV makers feel the need to confuse consumers by labeling simle adjustments like "white level" and "black level" with TOTALLY confusing names... [​IMG]

    hi guys,
    can anyone help?
    i'm having a similar problem, with my Onkyo speaker set.

    with all the reviews, there were no mention of this interference.
    i've had the speakers sitting close to the tv, center speaker right on top of my tv for 10 months now.

    today it finally appeared.
    with a blue screen, the upper right corner is green.

    now the green hue remains on the tv screen.

    how can this color distortion be repaired on the tv?
    is it a permanent problem?

    should i get Onkyo to replace the speakers?

    thanks,
    dave
