    I stopped in on my mother yesterday only to notice the 31" TV we gave her had a terrible picture on it. After closer review, I noticed the following;
    green tint across the top 6-7 inches of the picture and purple tint across the bottom 6-7 inches of the picture. The center area looked fine. WTF? [​IMG] I tried adjusting the color to no avail, I also noticed a large electric floor fan sitting directly in front of her set. Thinking this was the unshielded culprit I moved it away but no instant fix [​IMG]
    Any thoughts?

    The fan motor may be the culprit here, but just moving it away won't fix the problem, the set will need to be degaussed (de-magnetized).
    Most sets these days have a self-degaussing feature, but the set has to be turned off and unplugged for a while, then powered up again for it to kick in.
    Try unplugging the set for an hour or so and powering it back up.

    I prefer not to push the subwoofers until they're properly run in.
