The Coneheads Have Invaded My TV

A TechLore "Ask the Experts" Question...


My repair serviceman put in another connection for the cable on the back of the TV because my grandson jerked out the little one inch connector. Now the TV has added cone heads to the people and egg heads to circles. Also, a black line has appeared on the bottom of the screen. What is the problem, and can it be fixed and will it be expensive? It is a 27iinch Sharp that is about 4 years old.

The Dell Axim X30 Pocket PC is like interacting with a baby. It is a smaller, less sophisticated version of its adult counterpart; the PC (or laptop). While I do, at times, enjoy holding a new born, I would prefer being around grown-ups when a mature situation arises (like building a spreadsheet).
