There are a number of possibilities based upon your description. Can you be a little more descriptive about the colors? For example, does the picture look like a 3-D one? Also, please confirm the model as that will help to identify specific defective parts and more detailed solutions.

    Thanks for the update. Unfortunately, I need the exact model number from the back of the set. The digital 100 us a whole line of units. The model number should be a 42xxxx format.

I have a toshiba 65hm167 no red color on the screen

Your TV is a DLP one lamp does it all, not like the old projection TVs with the Red, Green & Blue CRTs. Your TV may have a bad light engine or lose cable connections.

Good luck

Rca dlp tv squeals and at same time color goes funny red after a few minutes will work perfect keeps doing this off and on

HI, the convergence board is going out. that is what is causing the funny red shade that appears. this board regulates the rgb stream and, it is failing at this time. Replacing the convergence board will fix this issue.

All Dots, no clear picture

Might be the Flex Converter Module, They have issues at about this age. I think there are some bad caps in the module, dont know for sure always sent in for rebuild. If you dont know alot about these, these toshibas are a pain to pull apart and back together working, you might want a professional to do the work.
