The white lines on the darker backgrounds are more than likely retrace lines. Usually caused by a leaky capacitor in the horizontal sync circuitry. If the red comes and goes it's probably a dry joint in the red drive. If you're handy with a soldering iron try resoldering the solder joints on the CRT neck board. If that doesn't do the trick then perhaps the drive transistors are on the motherboard. Just look for 3 transistors usually in a row and somewhere very close would be adjustable pots with the letters R.G and B printed near them. Even a simple gentle tapping with a plastic end of a screwdriver around that area may make the red flash on and off. Just resolder around that area and you'll know it's fixed when the red stays on. Just make sure the power is unplugged when working on the set and stay well away from the EHT and power supply areas. They can give you a nasty shock even if it is unplugged. Actually with live chassis TVs it's always best to use an isolation tranformer. If any of this is over your head the say hello to the repairman :-) BMW

Sillygirl I thought I would pass along a little tip on crt testing I learned many years ago. You take a 470 Ohm resistor and ground on end with a cliplead and touch the other end to the collector of the drive transistor. If the crt is good it will glow that color of the drive xixtor so you can simply check all three guns in a easy fashion without draging out the old crt tester/rejuvenator. Now this is only to see if the tube is working on that gun and wont tell you how much gain the color has..

If still under warranty or if you have no electronic repair experience you should take the set back to the shop or to a repair person. Some of the solutions described below can be dangerous, TV's and CRT monitors are very hazardous to service. Even when plugged out, they can store very high, deadly voltages. How old is the picture tube? If there's lots of phosphor burn on it, chances are the red gun inside the picture tube is out. A sure-fire way requires an oscilloscope. Check the voltages on the three color guns at their corresponding pins on the CRT's neck board. You can see their levels change as you tweak their adjustment pots on the neck board. If the red voltage is present and at the same levels as green and blue, then the gun inside the tube is shot. If the red voltage is NOT there, then you can work backwards and find out where you're losing it. It could be a bad buffer amplifier (transistor or I.C.), bad solder joint, or even a broken wire in the cable harness. check for cracked solder joints where the RGB, Grd Sync connector is. check the pins on the molex power supply connector, could be that the pin for the red is pushed back and is not making contact. Try swapping the red and green inputs if you see red on your monitor and no green, then it is NOT the tube. If you see no red still but still get a green where red should be I would suspect a bad chassis.

Hi Detrix, Check with www.lcdrepair.net if you want a repair. Something is wrong with your LCD controller and or GUI interface circuit or the circuit supplying power to it. If your technically endowed, you may want to open the monitor case and clean the dust and lint from around the circuits using a Small paint brush to sweep away any built up dust. These circuits take the Signal from the computer and controls the 2.5 million pixels on the LCD screen. Dsut can cause major problems with handling all that data. Give it a shot, what do you have to loose, its not dangerous if the monitor is unplugged.

My monitor screen is red what normally is white. Why?


Check all cables and replace all cables to rule them out. Is this a TV or a PC Monitor? If it's a TV them try going into the menu and reset all settings. If its a PC change cables (VGA or DVI). If RED is still present then it's gone bad. Hope this helps

The tv screen color is red no matter the color adjustment


hello, Confirm that the source is not a weird color video - try another channel or a tape. Verify that this is not a missing color problem - one of the primary R, G, or B, has disappeared. If so, refer to the section: Intermittent or missing colors. Once these have been eliminated, you are left with the following possibilities: Defective part around the chroma chip/circuit. Misadjusted color oscillator. Bad connections or short circuit in area of chroma chip/circuit. Defective chroma chip (don't suspect this first just because it is probably very expensive). Bad degauss circuit resulting in lack of degauss or abrupt termination of degauss current rather than smooth tail off. The CRT is not being properly demagnetized and color purity is totally messed up. Bad CRT - the shadow mask has been damaged and it is impossible to properly adjust purity across the screen. NOTE- This will require a skilled personnel to handle this

It seems that the red is missing from the color monitor. It has blue and green hues but no red


Verify the cables and the connector pins of your monitor, at both cable ends. Ensure the cable is properly connected and the retainer screws are tight. A primary color's disappearance on a (S)VGA monitor is usually caused by a faulty contact in the connector (if you can, verify the cable also by switching with another PC's).

Red colour missing


- A bended color pin at the VGA connector. (If pin one is bend then there would be no red color)

- A defective VGA signal cable. If the internal wires were broken then there would be missing colors. You can check if the signal cable is good or bad by doing a continuity test using a multimeter.

- Dry joints in the CRT board such as in the CRT socket pins, video pre amp and driver IC and even at the connector pins. In fact this problem contributed about 80% of Monitor color problems. Applying fresh solder would usually solve the color problem.

- A defective IC either in the Video Pre-amp or Video Driver IC.

- Faulty components in the CRT board. It could be a shorted driver transistor or even electrolytic capacitors that the ESR reading had shot up!

- A bad CRT socket. Sometimes decayed glue could cause the internal pins rusted and thus affecting the colors. Replacing only the CRT socket would definitely solve the problem.

- A weak or a defective picture tube (CRT tube). Yes, I do came across one of the electron gun (most probably the cathode materials had used up) in the tube faulty caused a missing color in the screen. There’s no way to repair this type of problem-the only way is to replace the CRT tube.

- In the newer type of Monitor, color setting is save in the EEPROM IC . Thus, if the EEprom data is corrupted, you would also get a missing color! The only way to repair it is to reprogram the IC or use a soft jig to tune it back the color setting.

Red Arrow


The red arrow should represent a recent missed call. To get rid of it, press the left soft key when you are at the home (standby) screen to enter the calls menu. Press the return (arrow) key on your phone to return to the home screen and the arrow should have disappeared.
