I had to adjust the brightness to 100% and you can still barely see it and it has a blue tint

This TV is CRT driven and when the brightness is a issue you would need to diagnose the Blue CRT and or the Fly back transformer.

Many times the transformer is not providing enough power to that CRT witch can cause this to happen.

Without the TV in front of me it would be difficult to pin point.

Also you would want to consider if the TV is out of Focus thus causing this blue tint, Here is a on line part store that can help you in purchasing the parts for the tv if your interested in Do It Yourself repair.

First if the TV is not illuminating with the brightness function you would consider at this point the TUBE "CRT" or the Fly back witch drives them.

Thanks for your questions

Screen turns blue after 5 minutes of operation

Hello, the blue color if excessive in intensity is due to a probable HV block, intermittent blue amp. or an intermittent K to A internal short in the blue CRT. either one of these circuits will require diagnostics done by an electronics tech. Repair cost of either one of this problem will run over 390 dlls, a lot more if the problem turns out to be a defective CRT. Hope this helped.

There is blue yellow color blur on the screen with cable or dvd

This problem is of "CONVERGENCE". You have to replace the convergence IC's which is better to buy a new one TV, Just contact any expert and replace the convergence IC's and your TV work fine again you need not to buy a new TV.
