desmond frost: A postcode would be helpful. I'm not sure what a 'negative picture mode' is (a make and model would be a help as well as explaining what that means).

However, I'm taking a guess, but do you have a TV with a digibox attached? Mine does this sort of thing sometimes, and its caused by the scart connector on the back having broken slightly, and the wire connections being loose. If I put pressure on this scart, the picture goes pinkish. If this is the situation,in the short term, the best thing you can do is to leave it as it is if your getting a good picture (blutack helps to fix it in one place). While you can in theory get it repaired, the cost of that might outweigh the utility you might get from that set.

In the long term, if thats the problem, best to think about another TV. My best suggestion would be to consult my colleages at the shop opposite Homebase in Parkstone (I grew up in Poole, so I know the area well)!
