THE TV IS SHOWING GREEN.ALSO IS SOME WHAT OUT OF FOCUS. NEED TO KNOW HOW TO CONVERGENCE THE TV. DON'T KNOW HOW TO CONVERGENCE THE TV. I HEARD THEIR ARE CODES THAT MIGHT HELP TO CLEAR THIS UP, BY USING THE REMOTE.PLEASE HELP. CAN'T AFFORD A REPAIRMAN AT THIS TIME HAVING A BABY.
Your TV most likely has one of two possible problems.
Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )
Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
Here is a quick test....
Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.
Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.
You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.
If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.
You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.
Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy
Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.
Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

Is this complete green or just green edges? If complete green then it sounds like you have lost your red and blue guns. I would take back off and look up in set and see if red and blue are lit. Then I would turn Screen control up just a bit to see if red or blue comes back, remember if don't see the red or blue come up then turn back down, also focus is on this block also, but you would have to focus one color at a time. Hope this helps!
