Color issues in the lower right corner

The lower right corner of my TV has a pinkish tint to it. When the screen is green, this area is purple. When red, this area is blueish. I have checked for any kind of magnetic issues, and even moved the TV, but the issue still exists. What could it be?

Re: Color issues in the lower right corner

Unplug the set overnight and plug back in and turn the set on . If the spot goes away alittle then do this again. Up to three days > if that dosent fix the problem then you have a problem in the deguissing coil curcuit. Probably a cod joint on the thermister or a bad relay , a bad coil . Not a big deal repair. Good luck

Color distortion

Move any speakers or electrical devices away from the set. It could also be anything electronic or magnetic. Anything near the set that generates a magnetic or electromagnetic field could be causing the distortion.

Green tint I can't seem to fix

Hopefully someone on here has a manual and can tell you exactly where the tint controls are. Also need to try adjusting the color level, turn it clear down so you have a black and white picture.
Is the picture still green over the screen with the color control
set clear down to black and white? If it does, you might
have an issue with the green gun going out or problem in the
circuitry to it.

By the way, the best way to adjust the picture settings on a
tv are to first turn the color control clear down, then adjust
brightness and contrast for best black and white picture, then
bring up the color level to where it should be and adjust the
tint for best red/green ratio.

Green tint on screen

Is it a green tint at some areas alone, oris the entire image having a green tint? If it is a color patch at the corner or other areas of the screen, in all likelihood it is a degaussing problem. Color patches happen when the TV is moved from one location to another, or if some magnetic source is placed close to a CTV. Did you put a radio or Tape recorder or Walkie talkie toy or any magnetic source near the TV? if yes, remove it. And the automatic Dregaussing circuits in the TV will resolve the problem in a couple of days. But if there is an overall Green tint on the picture, it signifies a problem in the Video output stages, and there is nothing you can do, but call the technician (unless you know solid state servicing?)
