You need to try to adjust it with the original remote in the TECH mode---you can save the adjustments there--
With the set on a video input with nothing connected: hit the following buttons: 0 6 2 5 9 7 STATUS
The menu should appear with choices---green(do not adjust green) red to green, blue to green etc.
On that initial menu will be a item that says store or save. Depending on the remote you have once you select red to green (cursor on remote) a grid of lines should come up---on screen will be instruction--menu to adjust and or status to navigate.
When you have the red--to green adjusted hit the status button until it takes you back to the menu where Store or save is listed and right cursor on it. This will store the adjustments.
Go back by selecting blue to green and adjust that also and when done go back and save it.
Turn the set off to exit the service mode and see what you have---IF THE SET DOES NOT RETAIN these adjustments made in the Tech menu something is wrong with its DCU--digital convergence unit---that stores the adjustments.

In replacing the CRTs, there are multiple focus adjustments. The basic one first is the Mechanical lens adjustment on the CRTs, (in this case red), the second one is the Electronic Focus on the Screen/Focus Block on the front of the unit behind the front panel. The third focus and on of the most important is the Beam Centering Focus. (In this case RED CTR) It is located on the neck of the CRTs. They are the first set of adjustment rings up from the CRT Boards. If any of these focus adjustments are off they will cause a symptom like yours to occur. Normally these adjustments are made before any convergence adjustments are made. I would double check to see if the repairman made these adjustments.
I hope this helps
As is typical with all Philips projection sets the cooling fluid has become contaminated in the blue and green picture tube assemblies. The red is almost never affected with this as whatever bacterial growth is discoloring the fluid in the blue and green tubes can't seem to survive in red light. The blue and green light is shining up through muddly cooling fluid and that is why the red is predominating. A reputable tv repair shop can pull the tube assemblies and dismantle them and clean and reassemble and refill and do all the necessary adjustments for around $300 to $400.
Sounds like your red is out of convergence. You may be able to adjust the convergence in the TVs menus. It may also be possible that the TVs convergence circuitry has gone bad. In that case it would be worth to have the TV repaired, convergence board are usually fairly inexpensive.
