Sony 46" RPT color problems

Hi all, I just received a KP-46WT500 and I'm having some problems hopefully someone can point me in the right direction. When I turn on the TV the Standby/Timer light blinks 10 times. When the TV comes on it looks fine after about 10 seconds or less the TV gets a really blue purple tint to it. There's no blurriness or double images just a perfect picture but with a blue purple tint especially when it should be grey. Any help would be appreciated. Rob

    Here are some pics to show what I'm talking about. Please disregard the burriness thats just the way the picture was taken. Picture is actually sharp.

    When I turn on my Sony CRT TV it takes a while for the image to come on. When it does the colors are messed up (green looks pink). Overall tint is reddish.
    Any suggestions?

Hello BlueKalel,

It looks like your green CRT is malfunctioning. You should try to see if the voltages are correct on the socket of the green CRT and check the high voltage on the green CRT using a high voltage probe. Use a schematic diagram to reference these voltages to.

I am positive that the problem is the green CRT or the circuitry leading to the green CRT. Please use caution when checking these voltages.

Thank you,

If the D board didnt correct the convergence issue the problem has got to be the wave generator on the A board or possibly the Velocity boards themselves that are bad.
