Most Australasian TVs (well, decent ones anyway) can do both NTSC and PAL.

Everything is messed up; pal, ntsc, aerial tv, etc. I think the fault is inside the tube?

When I initially bought the TV, I already got this bad feeling, because when I was playing PS2, I find this weirdness:

During the opening scene from God of War PS2 game, when he jumped into the valley, the left and right black area wobbled a lot. And I think eventually the display just widened itself and now I can't see the left and right edges of the image.

Watching too much Bill Gates will mess up your TV.
Sorry man, I cannot help myself sometimes!

Your CRT is just getting a bit long in the tooth. It's up to you whether you want to replace it now, or get a few more weeks/months/years out of it.

I just got this TV for a year, so I need to live with this unfortunately.

Such is life. I guess you could always save up a few beans an snag a cheap TV off ebay.com.au if necessary.

I'm not saying that the problem does not lie with the TV, but I don't think you can blame it on the age of the tube...a TV should last more than one year. It may be faulty/defective, and maybe you should contact the manufacturer...

Didn't sound like the TV was new to me. If it was, then that's another story.

If you're experienced in DIY, get hold of the service manual - chances are high that there are internal trim pots to adjust image postion and size.

About a year ago I left 2 big speakers near my 27 inch tv and left for 2 months.

After 2 months when I came back the screen was green.

Why do I mention the speakers?

I'm sure some of you have held a magnet near your TV and seen what happens to the colors.

we've probably done 2-4 hours every day in those years and it shows, there is burn in where ever the generic maps/lifebars are.

granted this took years to accomplish but the TV is completely shot, all the colors are off (you can see Red, Green, and Blue shadows under everything)
Then the set needs to be converged - it's not "shot", it's (way) out of adjustment!

I'm sure you had the set degaussed to get it back to proper color focus??

Magnets are how the TV deflects the electron gun to "draw" the picture on the screen to excite the phosphors. It's called the "yoke", a high-power electromagnet.

Is your TV out of warranty? If so, give Samsung a call / email.

There's something wrong with the TV itself. It shouldn't be doing that on all inputs.

Yeah, it's out of warranty already. I'm not planning to DIY this, and I think it's really not worth it taking it to repair since I got this cheap and considering that I have to carry this heavy TV to wherever the service centre is, plus the fee, then have to wait for a few days and come back to pick it up again... I think I'd better live with it for a little longer.

I just wanna make sure that it's not the PS2 that damaged the TV so next time when I buy a new TV I can still play PS2 (or other console) with it.
