Glitch causes problems for Portsmouth's Big Screen
IT HAS screened opera and keeps people entertained in Portsmouth Guildhall.
But now a large red square has marred the Big Screen in the city centre.
A technical glitch has left the huge television red faced as engineers race to fix it.
Posting on Twitter, @BigScreenPorts said: '˜We're upgrading our equipment to stay sustainable as we turned 10 years old yesterday.
'˜Essentially, the old equipment is having an argument with new equipment.
'˜We should have engineers coming out next week to fix it.'
Run by Portsmouth City Council and the University of Portsmouth, paid-for advertising is also run on the screen.
A message posted on Tuesday said: '˜We're aware of a technical issue that's currently affecting the Big Screen.
'˜Advertisers have been contacted with campaign currently being paused until the issue has been resolved. We are looking at a quick fix as soon as possible.'
A Portsmouth City Council spokeswoman said: '˜The Big Screen currently has a technical issue,Â engineersÂ haveÂ been called and we hope to have it working again as soon as possible.'
