    Ok had the TV for almost four months now and love it. But... both left and right edges have a definite red tint AND the much bigger issue
    Lst few days I've noticed a flicker when watching all sources. I thought at first it was just the Xbox but then noticed it on DVD and TV as well. It seems to flicker a little brighter and darker quite a bit. Do I call a tech now or can I do something myself?
    Thanks
    Greg

    Greetings

    Tinted sides are distracting at times, but considered to be normal and a drawback of crt based RPTV technology.

    Techs won't be able to fix this.

    However ... you might. Lens Striping is the tweak needed. Must lens strip likely both sides of the red CRT.

    See Keohihdtv for details on this tweak.

    Regards

    Thanks for the help, yes the ALS and Flesh tone are off. The flicker though wasnt present for at least the first three months I had the TV.

    Hi Guys,
    I have the Toshiba 57hdx82 and I have begun to notice flicker on the DVD only. But will keep my eyes peeled. Flesh Tone and ALS are both off. Any suggestions?


    Thanks a bunch
    Leigh

    As noted above, both Sony and Tosh are having trouble with the new Pegasus II electron guns.

    The flicker/flash is a service call.
