It's pretty normal for it to take up to 45 seconds for this set to fire up, could be starting to have a problem with the ballast which controls the lamp

It is normal for your TV to take a few moments to reach a brightness level that you can enjoy. A typical Mercury vapor lamp will take amout 2 minutes before it reaches it's optimal brightness. It will continue to increase slightly about 10 minutes longer, but you will not see those subtle changes. So, your TV is functioning as it should, just enjoy the show. If you want to learn a little more about the Mercury Vapor lamp it your TV, please check out my Tips & Tricks. I hope this was of some assistance.

Turn the green screen control on the Focus Block until retrace lines appear and gradually turn it back
Until the point where you can see the retrace line disappears, just before cutoff.
2. Turn the red screen control on the Focus Block until retrace lines appear and gradually turn it back
Until the point where you can see the retrace line disappears, just before cutoff.
3. Turn the blue screen control on the Focus Block until retrace lines appear and gradually turn it back
until the point where you can see the retrace line disappears, just before cutoff.
4. If the screen still appears too bright after proper G-2 adjustment, you need to adjust the sub-bright adjustment in the service menu
control down until screen cut-off. (Service data Range is usually 21 to 25 in the Service menu, for Sony sets you first go to category "MCP2", & then adjustment item 01( "SBRT")= subright.
For electrical the focus, put on the screen a clear picture of your choice thru an input of the TV set from a DVD, then pause the playback of the DVD Look into each color and rock that color focus control back and forth (turn the control one way then the other way slowing down as the picture goes into the best focus. till the picture looks sharp do each color till they all look in focus. NOTE: it is best to look into each color tube to achieve the best electrical focus. For optical focus please follow the manual lens adjustment in the sets service manual

Blue screen

The blue picture tube has gone bad. Sadly they are no longer availible for that unit. But the blue tube assembly can be sent back to a company called Video Display. They rebuild the tube for a very reasonable price. The hitch is that it takes a professional tv tech to reinstall and align the rebuilt tube. Most respectable shops will do this work but the repair is spendy. Usually around $450 to $500 or more.

RCA DLP TV with a red dot in the middle of the screen

Sounds like the color wheel stopped and re-started. It may continue to function for a while, but could fail at any time.

I've also seen on rare occasion, a defect in a lamp produce uneven color rendition, but its far more likely that the culprit is the color wheel.

Color flickers on and off

I went to the Sony support page for your model.(link below)
They are undergoing maintenance right now, so I couldn't find any answers for you. I would check back with the website to see if they can help you. If the Standby timer light flashes, you may need to have the TV repaired. There is a "Hot Topics" section for "How to troubleshoot television picture issues" that will probably be very helpful to you.

Shaking picture

yes.. i repair about 2 of these a month here at the shop. Toshiba has issued a service bulliteen concerning these. What the problem is a cuircit board called the "hypermodule". THere are 11 very very small surface mounted capacitors that have to be replace. Ideally the module can be replaced... more expensive but not by much considering labor is intensive on the capcitors .. but here the trouble... the board is not availble. we charge about 450 for this repair.. the boards not easy to remove the u have to be an expert solder to get these cap off an on.. i personally damaged a couple boards and like i said. boards not availble is a picture of the board the caps are the small circular components.

Problem with color

Yes you have a problem in the red crt driver board. Most likely the driver transistor is failing. This is a component level repair, so if you have no experience with TV repair, play it safe and call in a trained tech to assist you in this matter. Good Luck
