I've got a rear projection TV, and the image is really orange, and there are lines across the screen.

Is this something that is common with rear projection? I've had a bit of a look on Google and have found a couple of links to people reporting the same thing, but I can't seem to get an answer as to what the problem is.

Any ideas?

Not sure what type of rear projection (CRT, LCD etc) and I am no expert.  However there is one very good resource on the web that I have used in the past regarding all things related to troubleshooting TVs.  If you have the time, and no other experts on here have any suggestions, have a look.

Edit: I should have noted that it mainly relates to CRT.

If this is a Sony SXRD call sony as you may have heat damage. Think they may cover this issue outside warranty.

Sounds like you have a fault in the Blue video output stage,
and there are flyback lines.
If you reduce the brightness are they less obvous?

Regardless ,I'd say you 'll need to get it looked at.
