Sony KV2680R Console TV with bad color

I have a Sony KV2680R Console TV with bad color. It is all washed out in purple. The remote is also shot. I was wondering if it is possible to get a new TV replaced into the cabinet or if it is better to take it in for repair.

make sure no magnets, (speakers) are close to tv.
Magnets attract the color. TV's used to have to be manually
"deguassed"(demagnetized) Look for magnets placed close to TV. Speakers have magnets in them. It might save you a repair bill.

SOURCE: Colors going bad on my tv?

The picture tubes in Zenith sets (I assume it's a Zenith since you posted this with a Zenith heading, although it's also true for any set this old) were only expected to last around 7 years. Your description makes it sound like you are missing green, or that the green is just way low. This is a common sign of a bad picture tube. There are other possible causes, but tube failure is the most likely. The low replacement cost for small TV sets makes repairing this one uneconomical.

Get rid of the set and treat yourself to a new one.

Hi,
This kind of problem occurs if tv screen got hit by some thing that damage internally and its irreparable, second possible cause is magnetic field nearby screen, please check any speaker or some thing that has magnet inside around tv, remove it from tv to fix purple hue at top of screen.
Unplug tv from AC wall socket for 20-25 minutes, replug back in and turn it On, this will demagnetize screen to cure the problem.

Intermitant color bursts of red, green, purple


Kevin,

for the color problem,most likely you do have problem with loose contact of components from C-board ( small board connected at the back of CRT "picture tube" which drives every color and size of the screen)if you have knowledge with soldering electronic component parts, resolder this board and also check main board for possible loose contact.

cheers,
mark

Sony trinitron 32 " purple area on screen


Check any magnatic device near TV which causes purple color on screen. That device can be Speaker, Electronic toy, Watch like that carring piece of magnet inside. Remove that device and turn OFF your TV for half a hour, then power again. Hope the color will be fine n normal on entire screen.

Color problem with TV


Are you getting Green or purple or pink patches all over the screen?
This could be a problem of Degaussing. Have you placed any Magnetic source near the TV recently? Some Tape recorder or walkie talkie or a Speaker, etc? The Magnetic field created by any of the above sources can cause coloured patches over a colour TV screen.
It also happens if you shift the TV from one location to another.

The third possibility is that the Picture Tube's Red Output stage gone faulty. Unless you are a trained Solid state Electronics Technician, there is nothing you can do. Better go for a trade in.

Sony Trinitron 32 tv


1) Could be bad CRT ( picture tube )===no green==purple.

 2) Might be lack of green drive to CRT==bad transistor.

 Recommend analysis by technician--usually worth it if CRT ok.
