    The entire plastic on the front (beneath the screen) comes off----either just pulls off or is secured on either side on the back by some screws.

    With that off remove the inspection plate (Masonite) behind it.

    Now look carefully for a black, square plastic block with 6 controls embedded in it.

    One row is FOCUS and do not touch those.

    Other row is SCREEN, marked r,g,b for red, green or blue---green is middle one.

    With set on and having located RED SCREEN CONTROL turn it with the set on and a black and white program or an unused video input until the red tinge is gone and you have a gray or black and white picture====likely less than a eight of a turn.


    The controls get touchy or drift a little sometimes but the entire adjustment should only take start to finish ten minutes or less.

    Let me know if you have questions BEFORE YOU ATTEMPT THE ADJUSTMENT.

    Very common problem and often thought by some to be a bad picture tube.

You need to adjust the red screen control; fairly easy and common on this model.

If you need to know how to do it let me know.

If your TV looks 3D, warped, or distorted it likely has a convergenge problem.
If however it just looks dull, washed out, redish, greenish, or blueish or if it looks like objects on the screen have halos the fluid in the lens has soured.
You can search google for parts or you can get the parts with repair instructions from sites such as
