Re: Blue color is now Green

Are you using a cable box / dish network etc reciever? Does it have 3 component video cables (red, green and blue cables). Often times color problems like that are a result of your cables coming loose out of the set or cable box. Make sure that they are snug and secure and in the correct spots on both the reciever and the television. Don't just assume they are, make sure to check all of the cables. I am a television repairman and even though I tell everyone this, at least once a week I have a call where this is the problem.

It is possible that there is a allergy that is growing the blue and green gun, it will not grow in the red gun, and it blocks the video and makes it look dark, on the greenish side. To fix the problem, you have to change the coolant in the guns, and then it will look like new again.

Over time a thin layer of fungi grows over the top of your BLUE CRT preventing light fronm shining through. This causes you to loose the blue color in your set. Check and clean. Also when the back is off your set check to see if your blue CRT is on. If not you may need to replace it.

CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed. Notice how dull the colors are and how white the screen looks. The screen may also look red, orange, dull, etc.


TV set after fluid change. Notice how bright the colors are now. Everthing looks crisp and sharp again.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

Blue crt shot

The coolant in the blue tube has no doubt congealed to an oatmeal like consistancy. Did you notice things like blue halos around things for some period of times. change the coolant. that should correct the blue. this is a common thing for that model as well as all TVs. Blue and green has this happen, Red seems to not have the same trait.

Panasonic 47 HDTV blue looks green

What you have there is referred to as white balance... The Overall White Balance May Suddenly Change And Become More Red, Green, Or Blue Depending On Which Crt Has Been Affected. During Turn Off A Crt Might Arc, Causing D304 (Red), D331 (Green) D361 (Blue) Damage And Leak Changing Cutoff Levels. Replace Diodes With Panasonic Kit # Txask02gser. Kit Contains 3 Diodes And 3 100k Resistors. Install New Diode And Resistor In Series In Place Of Old Diode. Install Annode In Crt Socket Where The Old Annode Was. Then Connect Resistor To Cathode End, Other End Of Resistor Goes Into Pcb Where The Old Diode Cathode Was.
A job like this in my shop we charge $280.00 dollars plus tax which includes the kit... Also a pickup/delivery fee if we have to go and get the unit...
