Re: Purple tint

Do not put a colour television near a strong magnetic field. I have confirmed from several experts that this has the undesired effect of causing loss of colour

Purple tint on corners of television screen

It needs degaussed. Turn the TV off for 24 hours and unplug it. Plug it back in and turn it on. If the degaussing coil in the TV hasn't worked buy a cheap degaussing wand off of ebay. 10 second fix. You can also ask the local repair shop to do it. Anything over $5 I would just buy the wand. Keep magnetic objects as well as electronics away from the TV. Vacuum cleaners can also cause this if it's on the floor.

We have a Proton VT-290. Black and white movies have a purplish tint. I cannot correct the color by adjusting the tint, color, or black and white control buttons. Is this problem fixable?

it may just be your tv. some tv's have that type of problem sometimes. actually, i wouldnt say its a problem, just a lack of effort in the makers of your tv. if you dont mind the problem, just dont worry about it. if it just drives you crazy, get a new tv.

The t.v. has too much color

First set the color to 0, the TV should be in black and white. if there is a purple or rainbow color then your tube may be failing. Most default settings are when everything is half way(centered). If this dosen't correct the issue than there is an issue on your main board.

Blue tint and lines on screen.

Those lines sound like "retrace lines" and several things can cause them. The most common are shorts inside the picture tube and shorted semiconductors in the video driver circuits. They can also be seen if the blue screen voltage is too high or if someone has tampered with the screen voltage control.

Toshiba 32AF41 Power up Problem and Green Screen

My first inclination would be to check the picture tube, especially if the set is over 7 years old. If it is not that, then anything from bad solder connections to capacitors or a defective IC could be the cause. If it's over 10 years old, replace it. No use flogging a dead horse.
