If your TV uses CRTs to project an image on the screen, it sounds like either the red one is goofy, or the green and blue CRTs are goofy.

I had a CRT-based Sony RPTV, and had problems with one of the CRTs dying. I had an extended warranty that covered the bill, but the repair tech (who'd actually been to my house for several other issues with this TV) told me that I'd saved a ton of money having that extended warranty (or service contract if you must). He said that replacing the CRT would have been about a $500 or $600 service call.

Frankly, I'd just bag it and get a new TV. I'd look for a store that will cart your old TV away for you because you don't wanna give yourself a hernia lugging that old monster out to the curb.

Not only will the picture be significantly better and brighter, but you can also pick up a TV will all the nifty internet gizmos included.

It sounds like a convergence problem. A fairly common reason for thisproblem is the convergence chips have failed. They are usually referredto as "STK" chips since the model number of these chips start with STK.I will put a link to another part of this site where someone has postedpictures and a link where to get the parts should you decide to fix ityourself. Look at Ecullier2012's posting. Jean's posted site will notfix this problem. Hope this helps you out. Let me know.

SOURCE: Sony KP-53HS30 Projection TV has pink and blue hue w/timer blink

Depending on your TV, you may have a Color Temperature (Color Temp) and/or Hue setting in the menu. Use these options to adjust the picture to the setting that best suits your viewing preference.
If your TV has a Color Temp setting, you will normally have the following options to select from:

  • Cool: Gives the picture a cooler, slightly bluish appearance.
  • Neutral: Gives the picture a neutral, more natural look and appearance.
  • Warm: Gives the picture a warmer, slightly reddish appearance.
If your TV has a Hue setting, follow the appropriate step below to make adjustments:
  1. Move the setting to the right to reduce the reddish appearance.
  2. Move the setting to the left to reduce the greenish appearance.

SOURCE: Sony 51" Rear Projection TV is blurry with colored ghost images

Thats caused by a convergence failure. The Sony type 1 convergence repair kit from www.tvrepairworld.com will usually correct that issue the kit contains the components and the CD with repair instructions so you can repair yourself.

One yellow, one pink, and one blue spots appeared on my tv screen.


The set if projection which model here is, has arced and now each of the three picture tubes used has a tiny permanent burn mark on its screen.

That is what you are seeing, the set uses three picture tubes with screens like the old tv sets===the coating has been burnt in each, want to prove it, remove rear cover and cover any one of the three lens and that mark on one tube will go a way.

Not fixable.

I just replaced the bulb in my Sony 55'' Grand Wega. the picture looked fantastic the first day. turned on the TV the next day and everything that should have a ''white color'' looked pink. the blues...


Please adjust TINT control of Video Settings in Menu that will adjust color tone of TV. I do not think this problem is related with Lamp because TV screen does not have any color blobs or spots.
Above solution is for Sony KDF-55WF655 model TV, if your model number is different, let me know.
Thanks.

Panasonic projection lcd pt-44lcx65 pink wavy lines


The problem is the computer in the TV is set to hold data for 2500 "On/Offs" Once you turn the TV on and off 2500 times, the dots start to appear as the computer cannot store anymore date. Call Panasonic, they will send a tech to your house for free and reset the computer and update it at the same time from 2500 to 1 million on/offs so it wont happen again. It takes maybe 10 mins to complete.

Hope this helps.

yes sounds like all 3 tubes are going bad. they are prolly not available anymore. try to adjust the settings in the menu. adjust PICTURE as low as possible and boost the BRIGHTNESS this might help but fixing this tv would not be cost effective.
