    I think AVForums have lots of techie type posts:-

    What is the problem you are having?

    Hi,
    The screen has now got a pink tinge and everything that is blue is really bright. I guess it looks like what old sci fi films did when they wanted it to look techie. Not sure if that makes any sense at all.

    What TV do you have?

    Its a 36" toshiba its only 3 years old but is still a rear projection style.

    Has it been next to speakers which don't have magnetic shielding? (or does that only apply to good old CRT screens?). Perhaps the bulb is dying

    Its next to the surround sound speakers that came with it as part of the package they are just small and in a silver casing. This tv has been a total pain a few months back we paid 260 to have it repaired as the screen kept flickering and you couldnt see the picture. Then now this. We have just bought the 40" Sony Bravia for the bedroom and could have done without having to replace the front room one at the moment. Im thinking that when you say the bulb and a its not good. lol

    2007 has been a corker so far and i said things could only get better, how silly of me to tempt fate and be dealt a handful more costly situations.

    laptop is playing up.
    Tv seems to be on its way out.
    Boiler is definate on its way out. For now though sticking your finger in to relight it seems a much better alternative to a new system.

    Cheers guys for all the help i am grateful.

    No, I'm afraid it's not good at all! This details the issue reviews.cnet.com/452…tml

    I'll no doubt need to buy a new bulb for my projector at some point this year but at least I was aware of the need for replacements when I bought it.

    My friend bought a large rear projection TV secondhand and I knew straight away that the bulb was on its last legs. Seeing as though bulb prices are invariably around the £200 mark I told him to get rid of it again sharpish.


    If you have the model number I could try and help you find the engineers menu to see how many hours the bulb has been used for and hunt down the average lifespan. Would be worth trying to rule out the most likely problem.

    On second thoughts maybe I should steer clear of you, you're jinxed! The boiler's literally just broken, flippin' Nora :giggle:
