Hello about 2 weeks ago I think the blue projection lamp on the tv blew and now the picture is all red and green. I would like a quote on how much it would be to service the TV since I can not carry it into the store and is it worth it to fix such a great but old TV. I got it as a gift from a friend who had the tube done back in 2004. No other problem otherwise than green people are a pain to watch. Magnavox PTV-382-A001

Re: Picture is all Green or Red
Its probably a combination of worn CRTs (picture tubes) and contaminated coolant chambers located between the CRT face and its lens. The repair cost as well as the availability of parts make this a poor candidate for repairs. It could easily cost over $1000 to do this repair.

IF IT IS HOOKED UP WITH COMPONENT CABLES (GREEN, RED, AND BLUE) FOR PICTURE AND RED AND WHITE FOR AUDIO, MOST LIKELY THE RED ONE IS NOT SEATED PROPERLY, CHECK BOTH ENDS THE ONE CONNECTED TO THE TV AND THE ONE CONNECTED TO WHATEVER THE SOURCE IS ( SATELLITE BOX, CABLE BOX ETC.

Most projection TVs have an option to refocus. For example, my Sony rear projection TV has a button on the front for focusing the lamps. Try finding this button or option in the menus with your remote.
Projection TVs actually use three lamps, one red, one green and one blue. These need to line up exactly in order to form a good picture, and when they come out of focus, you see the edges which sometimes has the effect of a 3D image when you aren't wearing 3D glasses.
Hope this helps!
there is currently a bug with HDMI when you try to run it from comcast box to a tv or through something to a tv. its thinking that you're trying to copy something...but in actuallity you're not. comcast knows of this problem and they are trying to make new boxes to fix it.
y,pb,pr are component cables. the red/blue/green cables that are digital to analog to digital, but will still give you a great picture.
if your using a HDMI cable and have comcast service call comcast and have them bring you a new red/blue/green cable. They may play stupid but don't let them leave without changing cables. -->
Sounds like you have two differant problems. A red drive or red picture tube is bad and the conbvergence IC's are bad. To test the red drive disconnect the green picture tube socket BUT MAKE SURE THE SET IS UNPLUGGED!!Then remove the red socket and move over to the green tube. Then turn on the set. If you get the same out of the green then you have a drive problem that needs to be trouble shot for a bad componet. If you do get a picture with the red connected to the green then the red tube is shot. If you know how to read a schematic, get one and then you should have no problem troubleshooting the red drive and the convergence problem. If you dont then there is no easy or quick fix as this is a solid state set and there are no user replaceable parts inside this.,. Your going to need, for safetys sake, call in a trained tech to assist you with this repair
