SOURCE: Red Colour is faded....looks almost purple?

This might be caused by the CRT or by the chroma circuitry. You will need a schematic diagram and a multimeter set to read voltage. The first thing would be to look at the voltages on the CRT socket. With the TV on and the back off, using the schematic measure the voltages on the CRT socket and see if they match the schematic, if they do not (and they wont) find out if the Red Cathode voltage is too high of to low. If too high the red video circuitry might be at fault if too low the CRT might have a Cathode to grid short. In either case power down the TV and with determine if the CRT is bad (using a CRT Tester / Rejuvenator) Run a series of test acording to the instructions of the CRT Tester. This will tell you if the CRT is bad and if it is bad what problem it actually has. Then you may or may not have to rejuvenate the CRT (follow the instruction on the Tester / Rejuvenator) to do this. If the CRT is not bad then you will have to test the chroma video circuitry to see which component is causing the problem.

As you see you will need some equipment to do the job with. and you will have to have a little bit of an electronics background, If you do not have these I would suggest that you take the TV to a qualified TV repair shop for servicing.

I hope this helps,
Thank you,

How long have you owned the tv? You have two options though your best bet is to locate your nearest authorized service center to have the tv repaired.

Do you mean G-Y in the chroma circuit or the green in the RGB output stage to the CRT?

If it is the latter, and the green is obviously missing from the greyscale, then there is a fault on the RGB CRT base board, such as one of the amplifiers going leaky or open circuit.

If iit is one colour disappearing from the picture but all other colours are present, yet the greyscale tracking is OK (as in black and white with progressive shades of greys in between - this shows up clearly with the colour control set to minimum) then it would probably be the jungle IC and/or colour decoder IC. The best way to determine this is to observe people's faces on the screen. If they appear pink or overripe (too red) then it would be a jungle IC issue. If the greyscale appears to have a single colour caste all through it (example yellow or pink) then it would be RGB or the tube. It is a good idea to check all the electrolytic capacitors around these 2 ICs as well as all diodes. Don't forget to check the CRT socket for dry solder joints - this can also cause the loss of a colour within the RGB/greyscale.

RCA model #f27648 reds missing from picture

It sounds to be a video output stage circuit fault. Check all the solder terminals at its CRT base card, including the solder terminals of the CRT base to the card. Re-solder all the suspected solder terminals by applying a little more fresh solder. Contact any service technician. Check the solder terminals of Red color output transisotor. If needy, replace it with a new one with same number printed on it. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Viewing it in "Mosaic" will make surf easy. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts there.
The fault is 'one colour predominant/absent screen'

BEKO 32WLU530HID only red colour except on internal Menu

Sounds like a loss of green--I am in USA and Scart term not used here but I am aware it began as internet slang for Component hookup--which does use a Green, Red, and Blue input cables---if that type then suspect no green from source or cable bad etc.

How do i connect a Blu-ray player to my TV

It should connect best to the one with blue,green,red and then the two for sound--red and white---This is component hookup.

once connected you select the input via the remote or menu..

The ones with the yellow, white and red are composite (yellow is video and color and red/white are audio---doubt it will work off blue ray unless similar outputs on that.

You'll need a DVD player that has component outputs. The composite carries the entire video information, while the component sends the three different color signals separately. The red and white cables are output cables. No all DVD players have the component outputs.

After having my dish network upgraded to HD and installed, i notice on my tv now that the green and red colors are not there, predominant on channels like ESPN that use these colors most. I._E.: football...

Sounds like one of the cables got plugged in wrong.

Look at the back of the HD box and there should be a cable with 5 ends on it (Green,Blue,Red, White and Red).

Often times a flashlight can help make sure you see the colors clearly.

The Green,Blue and one of the Reds is for video. The White and other red are for Audio.

When you unplug the connector the connection it is attached to is also colored. Check to make sure the colors on the cord match the color they are connected to at the box.
The most common mistakes connecting these cables are:
1) Crossing the Green and the Blue cables.
2) Connecting the Red Audio cable to the Red Video connection.

If all of the connections match the correct colors find the same cable where it plugs into the back of the TV and check these connections that they are correct.

When you find and move the cable to the correct connection this should clear up your color and you can begin to enjoy your new toys....

Good Luck....

I have red, blue and green cables when I hook them up to the back to the Sanjo TV I can't get the Audio to work. She has basic cable with no cable box just a converter box that give her reception. Should I put the blue and red cable on Pr and Pb and take the green cable and put it into the video out?

Red, green and blue colours diveded on my TV

ok well "tube" tellys as they are called use an electro magnet to keep the picture stable and colours correct its called gaussing now if you have a speaker or something magnetic nearby it will stuff up the colors but only normally producing colors like purple,green, or white
if you have colors across the screen (that aren't caused by magnetic force) then you need to take it to a repairer or decide wether or not to buy a new one this issue can turn out to be quite hard to fix and can be expensive the different colored electron guns may be burning or burnt out causing pale color or it could be as simple as a power transistor in the H.V supply has shorted out..and causing power issues to the tube.
hope this helps,ben

Picture is fine, but the sound won't work

Are the yellow, red & white cables RCA phono plugs?

Yellow = Video
Red = Right Audio
White = Left Audio (mono)

The red, blue & green cables are for picture only and don't include sound. Have you tried using the red, blue & green for the picture and using the other cable, red & white for just the sound? Don't use the yellow.

Good luck!

RCA tv only in black and white?

The route through the circuits in the TV from the various sources all lead to the final video amplifiers for red green and blue. Somewhere along the route is a circuit called a colour switch. This allows colour if the signal is strong enough, otherwise it only allows black and white. This fault suggests a weak video chip which is the one just before the switch circuit. the fault could also be a faulty coupling capacitor to or from this chip, or a low power supply voltage. Check for dry soldered joints around this circiut. Please note if resoldering on new televisions that they may have non leaded solder which requires about 50 degrees centigrade hotter iron.
