    Not good. It disappears after 5-10 minutes but I’m guessing it’s a sign of terminal decline….

    Have you tried any percussive maintenance on it yet?

    Is it on all inputs?

    Think I could sell it as an art installation?

    Did you get it off Freecycle? Charge the previous owner for repairs and loss….

    Just put it on the classifieds, described as ‘in perfect working order’, then ask for payment by Paypal Gift 😉

    Leave it in the front garden, it’ll be gone in minutes.

    That might work if I could find a photo of a new one.

    Looks a bit “Paul Smith” could be the perfect gift for someone who’s no more space in their wardrobe for Rapha kit.

    It’s buggered, that. Ours at work went the same way, they replaced the screen. (You know, the cheap bit of a telly)

    It’s one of the circuits on a board that’s heating up and expanding the circuit thus breaking it. You any good with soldering? If so then have a look on you tube as my mate had exactly the same problem and you have use an insulated screw driver [ie insulating tape on end] and put mild pressure on the circuit boards to find out where the issue is. When you put pressure on it the circuit should rejoin and the image should come back. I’ll get him to send over the you-tube link.
    As he’s a bit cack handed and it was his games room telly he just moved his desk fan in and put it pointing towards the back of the telly to keep it cool!

    Switch it on 5 or 10 mins before you want to start watching it?

    If you press together the edges of the screen case near where the fault is does anything happen?
