Default tv problems?

I put a divx movie in my new dvd recorder for the first time, and it discolored my TV

Its not the movie on the disc that is discolored, its actually the whole TV (left side of it)

Is it possible that divx movies damage your tv? Or is my TV finally broken?

Try moving the recorder. Discoloration of the type you describe is generally caused by maverick magnetic fields... move the source of the field and the discoloration should start going away.

Go through the TV's menu and see if there is a degaussing function and use that. If the tv doesn't have a manual degauss, then turn it off and back on a couple times... nearly all tvs automatically degauss when turning on.

thanks,

it is possible that my tv stand is making the tv discolored (it has metal screws, but they're not magnets)

i just dont understand why my tv screws up when i play a cd-r movie...just seems messed up...
