Broken Gogglebox

When I turned on the TV today I noticed something wasn?t right?. my colour was all mixed up?.. and I was annoyed! I bought the TV in Feb 2005, so it?s about 2.5 years old, and shouldn?t really be breaking on me.
Degausser Problem
I went searching on the internet for a solution but didn?t really find any solutions, and so I resorted to Yahoo Answers:

My TV colour is distrorted into circular/ring/bullseye effect. How can I fix it?

?..and within .

The Degausser in your TV mis-fired causing the bulls-eye pattern?.give it a day or two to disappear.

If it doesn?t disappear, you either haven?t turned off your TV for 30 minutes, or your degausser actually has a problem with it?.Call a TV engineer to degauss it and check the operation of your TV?s degausser?..

So?it?s my degausser is it? I turned it off, unplugged it, and then went off for a while, when I next checked on it it was looking much better with only a little bit of miscolouring?.yay!! I went off again and when I came back and turned the TV on again it was back to haivng the the same problem? grrrrhhhh!!!

I guess I?ll keep turning it off, and hoping that something changes by itself, or I?ll have to look at getting the TV fixed. Finger?s crossed that it all works out.

    Don?t know anything about degausing tellies but she?s quite fit.

    I think she was off Meridian News?.. I think?.

  3. You?ve not got any heavy metal objects or loudspeakers near it, have you? That might cause the problem.

    Most CRT tellies come with automatic degaussers these days, and work when you turn them on and off (not standby), so the advice you?ve been given seems pretty good. In my experience, though, once they go that?s it. Time for a splendid new LCD model, perhaps?

    Your degausser won?t degauss, eh? Good luck with that!

    I?m living with it for the moment until I decide what to do. I?ve got 3 options:

    Take it to a TV engineer, buy a new TV, hope it sorts itself out.

    I know what I?d prefer.
