    I helped my son start his own HT in his room. He has some of my old gear including an old Yamaha sub.
    He bought a 32" Sanyo TV and sure enough, the sub was too close and caused purple blotches in the lower left corner.
    We removed the sub, and most of the purple went away, but there is still a slight trace.
    Do you think that this will go away eventually or will it remain forever?

    Anthony, try unplugging the set for awhile (how long, I'm not sure, try overnight) and then powering it up again. The problem is that there is still some residual magnetization left. If the television doesn't have its own degaussing ability and if powering it off and on doesn't do the trick, you may need to get a degaussing coil or have a service tech come over who has one.
    hope this helps,
    --tom

    thanks Tom. I'll unplug it tonight and see how it looks in the AM.
    I think I can live with the small discoloration as it only is seen when the blank blue video screen in on, not when a picture is being diplayed.
