Could you supply me with the chasis number from the back of the tv E>G ctc203 at113. With this information , I can tell you probably what the problem is and approximately how much it will cost to repair. Each Rca has its own set of problems. Recently RCA/GE were purchased by a large Chinese Corporation. Some of the newer sets are totally CHINESE.Here are some of the common problems that would give you this symptom. Bad connections on the IHVY(flyback). Open horizontal windings in the Yoke. The original problem is problably due to an inaccaure setting in either the red cutoff or red background. These adjustments can only be made from the servicemans menu and are not accessable to the consumer. The problems described are of a serious nature(except you original one). You may consider shopping for a new set , replacing it with an LCD. The LCD gives off no radiation and cost much less to operate (electricty) Scrivitron

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

Green picture only

The projection TV has 3 guns RED GREEN BLUE. In your case the red and the blue guns are gone. So you are getting the green color screen. You got to replace the picture tube.

F25216bc RCA 25 inch TV. Color is distorted with a heavy red tint

You either have a bad CRT or a Shorted Red Output IC/Transistor. One other possibility is if
someone turned the Screen Control down if it is accessible from the back of the set.
Hope this helps,

Sounds like the red picture tube could be shorting internally which would cause the "all red" condition. In which case you'd have to replace the red tube. Are there horizontal (slightly slanted) lines through the picture as well when this is happening and a very very bright screen? If so it's most likely the tube.

Screen Green Tint

Turn down your color and see if the screen has a normal black & white screen. If it doesn't then the CRT is bad (picture tube). If it is black & White then you have a either lost your red or blue.That problem will be in your video driver circuit of which a service center can handle.

# 1 above you have covergence problems ,there is a service flash from rca to fix your fault,ask your tv shop. fault # 2 above turn off the color and adjust your screen settings for a grey picture,set brightness and contrast to middle settings. # 3 fault read #1 cause if your auto focus will not correct you require service there is a harness connector that looses connection and causes several fualts on the 52" rca's you can repair the fault but if you miss the harness replacement you will do it again.
