I loved this TV until yesterday.
I turned it on, and first I noticed very slight changes in color (like the drift you get when you try to display a dvd signal on a vcr), then it went to different colors, mostly pink and violet. Now it's all monochrome red and that gets brighter and darker whenever it likes. I tried turning it off for a while, but there was no improvement, except that it shows a good color picture when it first comes on and quickly becomes red monochrome.

Re: All red picture now.
If you said that for a moment its looks ok then, look at the circuit board closely for cracked solder joints. Resoldering any bad joints might just solve your problems, but remember there are very dangerous parts in a tv circuit get a tech to solve these, is not to espensive...good luck

This tv have a colors wheel,hear loud motor noises,humming noises,squiling or grinding noises,have pictures black and white.All these causes are by the colors wheel is worn out, warp rubbing against it motor or fiber plastic glass briddle about to brake aparts.Don't turn this tv on anymore until,u change the colors wheel or u will damage the projection engine.The colors wheel are hard to change for amatur and hobiest.Because involved taking out many machanical parts,before even can come to the colors wheel to take out and change it.The best course to to hire a Tv Tech.to do this job.The price colors wheel part and labors.Awhile back was about $500-550,now??
These procedures are from the owners manual, go into menu and then picture quality and then:
The Convergence feature lets you adjust the TV’s three tubes. When the TV tubes’
images are precisely aligned, they create the color images you see on the screen.
Over time, the picture can drift out of alignment (this is normal). If your picture
seems fuzzy or has a yellow tint, using Convergence could correct this
misalignment. Only one convergence is needed for all inputs, regardless of the
Note: Make sure the TV has been on for at least 30 minutes (TV needs to
warm up for best results) before starting Auto Converge or Red/Blue
When you select the Convergence feature, a submenu appears with three options:
Auto Converge Automatically aligns the projection lenses to self-correct
color images. You’ll see flashing squares of color dance across the screen
(this is normal).
Note: After performing auto convergence, use the Blue Centering and
Red Centering menus to fine tune convergence in the center of the
screen, if necessary.
Blue Centering Aligns the blue and green images to fine-tune the picture.
Red Centering Aligns the red and green images to fine-tune the picture.
Note: The ability to change channels is disabled when adjusting the
convergence options. The TV must be tuned to a usable signal to
converge the picture.
This could be that your picture is just oversaturated. Try turning the color adjustment down slightly. If you make slight adjustments to the 'Contrast' and 'Color' you should be able to dial that out.
Sounds like the red picture tube could be shorting internally which would cause the "all red" condition. In which case you'd have to replace the red tube. Are there horizontal (slightly slanted) lines through the picture as well when this is happening and a very very bright screen? If so it's most likely the tube.
The quickest correct fix for this problem is to open the TV, turn it on and display something on it. Then, on the the neck of the tube (where the screen just thins out) you'll see a an assembly of coils and odd disk-shaped objects. These are really magnets - the coil being the scanning or deflection electro-magnets and the disks being low-strength magnets. It is likely that with age the positioning (called alignment) of these have changed slightly to giving rise to the symptons you describe. Taking care for shock (keep your left hand in your back trouser pocket) try rotating this coil array while observing the picture, which should rotate accordingly (keeping a large mirror in front of the TV would help much). Once you are satisfied with the picture, you can use a glue-gun or even sellotape to secure the assembly from drifting again. Then switch off your TV, put the cover back and ENJOY your handiwork!
