I have a Hitachi TV model L32HP04U A that is kept in my mobile

Customer Question

I have a Hitachi TV model L32HP04U A that is kept in my mobile holiday home only used at weekends about 9 months a year. I think it is about 4 or 5 years old. Lately I have been having colour problems. When I switch on for about the first 10 mins it is perfect, then the colours turn a purple colour and after another few mins. Lines and shadows. Is it worth having it repaired ?
