Re: Green Screen

The lines are retrace lines and the green screen could be a problem with the picture tube or a problem with the video circuitry connected to the green gun of the picture tube. Troubleshooting must be done to determine the overall cause of this problem. Is it an easy fix. If I were in my shop and you bought this set in, it would be finished in a day. It being easy depends on the person, easy for me may not be easy for you, I have the equipment to fix this problem, and that is what it will take. let me explain: First I would use a schematic to show me the voltages that should be present on the picture tube socket board, for red green and blue. Then I would measure the high voltage on the anode and write it down (usually 20Kv to 30Kv) Then I would inject an known good signal into the TV (usually color bars) via the RF input on channel 3 From there I would make sure I write all of my measurements down and compare them to the schematic. At this point I would waant to make sure the picture tube could not be the culprit, I would power off the set unplug the set and then discharge the high voltage anode of the picture tube I have a tool that does this but it can be done with a big flathead screwdriver and a clip lead. Attach the cliplead to the screwdrive and then the other end of the screwdriver to ground. MAKE SURE THE SET IS POWERED OFF AND UNPLUGGED!! Manuver the flat blade of the screwdriver under the rubber cap of the anode connection on the top of the picture tube and make contact with the metallic clip (you may draw an arc so be prepared for an electrical discharge). Once you do that leave the screwdriver inplace as you remove the rubber cap and the metallic clip from the anode of the picture tube. Once this is done, remove the socket board from the back of the picture tube. At this point you will now use what is called a CRT Analyzer/Rejuvenator. Follow the setup and test instructions for the CRT Analyzer/Rejuvenator perform a tube check first and if the tube shows bad on any of the guns, perform a rejunvenation run on all threen guns, balance them and then test them again (repeat this about four times if needed), an more and you can count the picture tube as bad. If the tube is good or can be bought to a good state then reconnect the anode and socket board and reapply power. If the problem is gone then it was the tube, if not then it's the circuitry and then troubleshooting is needed, to find the problem in the video circuit. I hope this helps.

I gotta a green screen

It is possible that you have a shorted green CRT, you can remove the front speaker cover, and you will fine a focus block, and if you turn down the green screen voltage, very slowly, the green should turn down. if not then the gun (CRT) will have to be replace, If it does turn down, then go into the menu and turn the color are the way down and that should give you a black and white picture. If it is not black and white. adjust the red, blue, and green screen voltages until you receive a good black and white picture. Turn slowly they are touchy, and if turn to high, you will get retrace lines and the TV will shut down.

Screen goes green with white vertical lines

I think either your red and blue filaments are not fully intact causing the green to take over or you have other electronics like subwoofers too close to your tv.

Try degaussing your tv, it might have a degaus button at the back or check the menu.

If you've tried those things without luck, respond with more details.

Hope that helped.

Green screen, white lines. Audio fine.

You most likely have a bad picture tube. Green gun is shorted. Usually a set this size is not economically feasible to put a new tube in. You may also have a green drive problem on the CRT board. Have a shop check it out for you before junking it. Thanks for using fixya.

After a few minutes the color goes to intense red and green

My tv didn't turn green, but the red separated significantly. It started off happening after a few minutes of being on (I suppose the defective part was "warming up"), then it got to where it was like that immediately upon turning the tv on. In my case, I had to pay a tv repair man $350 for a new part. There are 2 microcircuits that control the color alignment--one that controls the red only, and the other controlls the other 2 colors, blue and green I believe. Maybe your part is the blue/green controller, mine was red. The repair man said these parts fail so rarely they don't stock the part. The cost of repair may be different for a different part, but either way you have to choose if it's worth that cost to you. If you get rid of it, I'll buy your tv stand ;-), I bought mine from a friend and didn't get the stand in the deal.
