    Thank you Randy. I didn't have green in mine for years. I took the cover off and found some knobs in there. Tiny adjustment and desaturated red (was too bright and brought the green back. Your tip with the front cover is awesome!!

In most cases your problem will be with the red crt or the red driver pcb. The crt or "picture tube" should be replaced by a tech. The red driver pcb is easier and you might be able if you know a little about tv's. You can try one other thing first. Pop off the front grill cover. Take out the 4 or 6 screws that hold on the cover that is in the dead center of the area that you just uncovered. Inside there you will find the 3 crt's. At the end of the crt's you will find the driver pcb's. Make sure they are on tightly and that the cables on the driver pcb's are seated tightly (with the tv off). Now take a flashlight and look for a black square pieace, about 3 to 4 inches square. There will be 6 small knobs on it. 3 are focus and 3 are screen controls. Find the one that is for "red screen". Turn the tv on. Turn this control clockwise and see if the red comes back. If it does great, switch the tv's input to an input that does not have anything on it, so that the screen is black, and turn that red control to the piont that the red is not visable. If this does not get the red back, then you will have to replace the parts that I have told you about.

The color from our RTD258RV dvd player is green and yellow. Can anything be done or do we need to get a new unit??/

From your description, it sounds like the RED connection is not being made.

The colors are created using RED, GREEN, and BLUE (RGB) primary colors to create other colors. If any one of the connections is not made, the colors will be incorrect.

Check to make sure the RED connection is good, with no damage or breaks in the cable. If it appears to be good, it still may be worth replacing the cable, which is much cheaper than a new TV!

Good luck!

TV picture is red.

Normal color picture is composed with 3 colors R-G-B (Red-Green-Blue). Picture turns Red means: Missing Green and Blue colors (many reasons: bad contacts, projector tubes dead, and other...). Try to give some "tabs" to diagnose ... I don't know what is the type of your Projection TV, how long you owned it, to have more idea.

TV shows red

It sounds as though the color settings have been altered or that the tv is going out. Assuming this is a crt unit, you might try adjusting the color or unplugging it for a few minutes.

Good Luck,
