The red color does'not work, the screen appear green only

Unfortunately, it's not possible to give you any advice about where to start trying to repair this problem on your own. Missing colors on a TV can be caused by many things: simple bad solder connections, component failures, or a bad picture tube. Without the necessary test equipment and service information, it's nearly impossible to fix many troubles.

The only suggestion I can make is to take this set to a service shop (or call for home service if it's too large to carry) and get a repair estimate if you really want to keep the TV. Or use this as an excuse to replace the set. Especially if the tube is bad, repairs may be uneconomical.

I wish I could offer more help. Good luck and thanks for using Fixya~

I have a 20yr old cs-3505r picture tube just went out .

If the picture tube is bad (no likely), then the set is not worth repair. If you have no picture, it could be as simple as a bad horizontal Output Transistor or other simple component. In that case it would be relatively cheap to repair. If the picture was good before it stopped, perhaps it is worth the estimate charge at a local shop to find out the problem. Unless it is an obscure failure, the parts to repair it should be available generically and inexpensively. Keep us posted. Dan

Samsung txh1970 tv screen has green tint

I encountered the same problem with a color computer monitor several years ago. Everything went green. The repair techies told me that's a sign that the power supply is going bad. You will not be able to adjust the color. You will have to either fix it or replace it. Hope this isn't a common problem with this model Samsung TV.

This may be a bad crt or picture tube. Take a good look at the picture when it's on and see if it has a pinkish or greenish tint. This is easiest to see if you turn the color adjustment all the way down. If it looks like the tint is green or pink and the focus isn't great then it's probably a bad crt. Not worth repairing if its the tube.

John, bad news, short in picture tube, not cost effective to repair, even if it was the tube is no longer available for that age set, the bright side is it doesn`t owe you anything at 15-16 years old, too bad the "new tv`s" don`t last that long, hope this answers your question, BMW Rider

Constant changes in picture colors.

It is a 20" TV set and will most likly, im afraid to tell you, cost more to fix then it is worth. The problem is a bad Picture tube, an intermittant CRT socket or the video jungle IC is intermittant. If you want to invest in an estimate, check out first if it will go towards the repair, as then maybe you can get it fixed at a good price, as long as the picture tube is not the problem Good Luck
