I need a bit of help on this one. Our TV has developed a vertical yellow/purple band down each side of the screen. Now it's an old one & doesn't really owe us anything, but if it can be fixed then I'd have a go.

It happened suddenly this evening. Anyone any ideas?

Gordon Bennett, that stuff looks like egg yolks!

Add some blackcurrant & you get an idea of the colour!

If you know any good PC repair engineers, or TV technicians, get them to wave their Degaussing Wand near to it (only the older/more experienced PC people will know these)
It scrambles the colours and resets them, and can often resolve problems like this.
