    Hi

    I've had a tosh 57hx83 for a little less than a year now and began to notice that the screen flickers in a greenish tint from time to time particularly when a relatively dark scene is shown. Anyone know what this is and if its normal? If not, is this a problem I should be getting serviced?

    Thanks

    Is this over the whole screen? Or is this green phosphor trails that follow bright-moving objects in dark scenes?

    If it's the latter, not much you can do about it, if it's like flashing green or something, then that sounds like a problem somewhere.

    Hi,
    thanks for the reply
    it affects the whole screen and it can happen anywhere from every 30 mins to several times in a few minutes.
    does anyone know if this problem would be covered in the manufacturer's warrantee? I only have about a month of it left so I guess I'd have to get it done soon.

    Better call it in. Anything like that may be the green gun acting up or maybe th convergence board buzzing in and out. At any rate, have a tech see it.
