When watching T.V. the red color is orange and the picture is hard to see when a dark part of the movie or show is on. I have tried to play with the menu and it did very little.

The color is very dull with the exception of red everything has a red tint to it other than that the rest of the 50" screen is very dark. Watching t.v. or movies are out of the question the color is...

Thats a very common problem caused by bad CRT coolant which will need replacement to restore the set back to normal colors and brightness levels. You can get the CRT Coolant kit at which fits your model. The kit contains the coolant for all three CRTs and the CD with instructions.

If you are getting the same problem with both TV monitors it could then be assumed it's an input problem to the TV monitor. If you are using a digital output from your receiver it could be the cabling. If you are using an analog output from your receiver it is probably coming from the receiver.
Digital video processing does have issues with darker scenes.
Can you try another video source seperate from the receiver like a DVD or better yet an analog VHS, if you still have one. Good luck and let me know.

Brightness and volume

The dark picture is a bad capacitor for the screen or drive voltage for the picture tube driver transistors. The other problem of streaking is one of the same. Thats the indication that a capacitors defective . It could in a rare cas ebe a defective or gassy crt as well but 99% of the time when a crt is said to be gassy its nothing more then poor drive to the crt. Good luck
