Strong red tint with horizontal lines across screen

Hi, I was watching tv and all of a sudden the screen got a strong red tint along with horizontal lines across the screen, I shut off the tv and cable and everything and when I turned the tv off it went to a red line and then shut off, when I turn it back on, it's the same red with horizontal lines. What could this mean?

We have a digital tv but an anologue vcr so we bought a strong srt 5430 so we can record through our vcr but are having trouble conecting the vcr and set top box

You need a cable to go between the yellow (picture), red and white (sound) sockets on the strong to the VCR.

Those cables will connect to one of the VCRs AV inputs. You then need to use the VCR remote control to switch from the now defunct analogue tuner to the Line or AV input. Put your TV on the channel you use to watch video tapes. Switch on the Strong receiver. Do the switch to the Line or AV input on the VCR. When your VCR is on the correct input then you will see the picture from the Strong receiver on the TV. You can confirm it is the correct source by displaying the Strong's EPG.

When you come to make recordings, the Strong will need to be left on the channel that you want to tape. If your TV already has an aerial feed and isn't relying on the strong for its signal then you can watch another channel on TV.

Red lines across bottom portion of screen

usually strong magnets like those in speakers cause lines on tvs if placed to close to the tv.
so demagnitizing the screen should work .
you may have to take it into a pepair shop to do this.
but if thats not the problem. you moe than likely are seeing a common problem of tv screen burn out. and these new tvs tend to burn out faster than the old ones did.

Single green line spanning across the screen horizontally

I was just watching TV and all of a sudden the screen minimized down to a single green line spanning across the screen horizontally. The label in the back says it was made in 1996 so it is an old tv. Can anyone help?

Red bar across top of screen??

I had the same horizontal, solid red bar along the top of the tv screen. I have an older analog Philips Magnavox TP2785C221. It just started all of a sudden. It was on every channel. However, the bar did not appear on the other input channels (e.g., AV1, AV2). So this meant that the red bar was only occurring on the antenna input. I unplugged my cable decoder box and restarted it. The red bar went away and that seemed to solve the problem for now.
