Pink haze along bottom edge that bleeds into the center of screen

I have a pink haze along the bottom right edge that bleeds into the center of screen. I have seen some other posts related to this here and convergence was suggested as the fix. Do LCD TV's have convergence? I have been all through the setup options and cannot find the convergence settings anywhere. I read on another site that this can be caused by dust inside the cabinet on the LCD panels. What is my best course of action?

Any sort of discoloraztion on a micro display set is most likly caused by dist or a film over the small displays inside of a set. in a LCD set there is no convergence to be done. You should be very carefull when or if you clean a microdisplay. Do not apply any liquid directly to the display and use a non lint type of a cloth and NO paper products at all.

First of all you need to find out which CRT leaked and replace it before any other repairs are done. The clear liquid is conductive and has done damage to the CRT board or boards.

Rca 61130 rear projection tv has pink haze

Try adjusting your Red screen control down just a little. This is usually a sign of the red crt developing a short. Often just turning the Red drive down just a bit will make the retrace lines disappear if not you will eventually need a new CRT or repairs in the red drive circuitry. Hope this helps.
