Sounds like something wrong in the tuner circuit How about performing a by-pass test? Use the A/V 1 or 2 inputs on the bottom rear of tv to hook-up signal.Use dvd or source box.When the set is cold,turn on and check.If the pix & sound are good,then the tv has a tuner problem. If you can live with two inputs,no repairs need to be done.Caution:observe funky,side-ways hook-up on A/V 2 !!!

Projection television acting like an old picture tube TV.


Yes, I used to work in Best Buy and one of the key things about rear projection TVs and the reason they push those service plans on you is that the tubes/colors need to be calibrated each year. You can do this yourself by checking out the following website:

After 5 minutes of good use screen goes redish color


It certainly sounds like the Red CRT (picture tube) has heater-cathode leakage and is not likely worth repairing, as all 3 tubes usually have to be replaced at the same time for best picture quality.

Red screen


It sounds as though your Picture tubes are getting weak or theres a bad capacitor in the screen drive circuit. The only way to tell would be to call in a tech to diagnose this problem with his test equipment. A tv set is not a place for an unexperienced person to play with. Good Luck
