Re: Color out of wack
There are only two things can cause that problem out of value resistors on video stage.
or weak picture tube . the first one 60 to 80 dls dependig on the tech ,at shop service 125.00
if is the picture tube more than 450.00
good luck and let me know thanks

Chances are real good that your picture is showing its age. There are three color beams in the neck of the picture tube. When these electrodes are operating correctly the will produce an arc, that will produce the proper voltage for color correction. Much like the spark plugs in your car. When you have a fouled spark plug, you replace it. In the case of a TV, replacing the tube is the best way to correct the picture you are looking for. It would be to costly to do this of course. Another option is to rejuvenate the picture tube. Once again, rejuvenating the picture is last resort. Customers must be warned that rejuvenating may work or even in some cases destroy the picture tube. I want to remind you as well, the symptoms you describe will over work the main board as well. This TV is not feasible for repair. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support!
Hopefully someone on here has a manual and can tell you exactly where the tint controls are. Also need to try adjusting the color level, turn it clear down so you have a black and white picture.
Is the picture still green over the screen with the color control
set clear down to black and white? If it does, you might
have an issue with the green gun going out or problem in the
circuitry to it.
By the way, the best way to adjust the picture settings on a
tv are to first turn the color control clear down, then adjust
brightness and contrast for best black and white picture, then
bring up the color level to where it should be and adjust the
tint for best red/green ratio.
I am about to say something that may sound stupid but it sounds like you are experiencing this. After years of use you CRT guns in your case the gun in each one of your CRTs(RGB) begins to oxidize and decrease in its ability to provide electrons for the scaning beam this creates a dark picture.
Common problem? yes, over time, but for it to happen in just six years is strange but it can.
Major Problem to have repaired? No, the technician will use a CRT rejuvenator on all three of your guns and then balance them and you are off and running.
Now the other problem that might be occuring low CRT anode voltage. this could happen.
Common problem? yes, it is the best choice
Major Problem to have repaired? yes and no depending on which components are bad.
It seems you might have cold solder connections on the picture tube socket or on the picture tube drive board. If your not a tech please call someone to assist you with repair as you can be seriously hurt by the HI voltage insiode this set an or cauae more problems with the set. Good Luck
