Picture has red tint

I would unplug it from the wall for a while and see if that will help reset it. Also make sure there are no magnetic devices near the screen because this will change the screen color as well. Mine will mess up every once in a while so I just unplug it while I am off running errands, plug it back up when I come home and it seems to reset itself. Good luck

The tv is at least 17 years old.The blinking red light blinks 5 times ,then the tv picture goes off . The voice is still on

Five blinks is the error code for an AKB (auto kine bias) error. What this means is that the set isn't able to balance the three color guns (red, green and blue) of the picture tube properly, and it's blanking out the screen.

To get the proper colors, the signals for the three colors need to be balanced, and Sony sets have circuitry to do this automatically. Other brands don't, and when they go out of balance you see a picture that starts to show tinting or colors that are off. As the picture tube ages, it gets harder to adjust the balance until finally the AKB circuit can't anymore, and poof, the picture goes away. With a 17-year-old tube, it's not surprising.

There isn't anything that can be done to fix the picture tube, it would need to be replaced. But the cost of the tube and the work required to get it set up after installation makes it completely uneconomical to repair this TV. A new picture tube is nearly $200. Then special tools are required to set the tube up (a process called convergence), so you'd need to find someone to put it in, and possibly pay to have the old one disposed of. A new 32-inch LCD set is around $350 now. Treat yourself to a new one.

My tv sceen has a stain that makes anything white look yellow.

The color image is comprised of three colors, Red, Green, and Blue.
All the other colors are mixtures of those colors. The yellow picture indicates that your set is lacking sufficient blue drive.

First of all check to make sure that the tint control is not misadjusted.
The next thing is dependent upon the age of your television. If it's an older set that yellow tint is a sign of an aging picture tube.
If it's a newer set, less than 5 years old, have it analyzed by a electronics technician that is familiar with televisions if he is skilled enough he will know right away if it's the picture tube or not.

The picture has a green tint to it on all channels

The color signal consists of Red, Green and Blue. Those three colors, at various degrees, make all the other colors on your screen.

If you have a BRIGHT green screen it's best you don't operate your set.
If it's just tinted green then there is a problem on the CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) drive board. Do check your "tint" setting and see if someone misadjusted it. If that isn't it then you need to have your set on an electronics bench and get an estimate for repair.

Sylvania 27 inch stereo flat screen tv

This problem sounds like a short inside the picture tube itself unless a driver transistor failed that drives the red gun in the CRT. You may have to take it to an authorized repair facility if the picture tube is still in warranty.

Toshiba 32AF41 Power up Problem and Green Screen

My first inclination would be to check the picture tube, especially if the set is over 7 years old. If it is not that, then anything from bad solder connections to capacitors or a defective IC could be the cause. If it's over 10 years old, replace it. No use flogging a dead horse.
