Re: Zenith A32B43W color problem

Classic symptoms! Most of the last TV's made by the old, original Zenith company (Rauland division) had bad picture tubes even when new. This probably had something to do with their going out of business and being taken over by a much better Korean company (LG Electronics AKA Goldstar). Another lovely thing they did before biting the big one was to only sell a complete chassis as a repair part. If your TV is older and has a small white paper tag inside somewhere on the picture tube (usually near the larger brand and type number label) with the code "EIA 1101" on it, discard it. I have NEVER seen one of these work correctly! If the CRT is made by someone else, there may be slight hope. Even if the TV is not very old, if it was really made by Zenith, and not LG, the possibility of repair is slim simply because of the change of ownership. I was sad to see Zenith die such a horrible death. They used to be fairly good, but somehow never made the transition to color TV. After 1954 they were essentially moribund.

Why does my KD-32FS170 32" Sony Trinitron screen have blue hues

If you turn all of the color out of the TV, the picture should be black and white. If that picture is not a true black and white picture, the TV will produce a color picture that has that behind it. It takes the proper mixture of red, green and blue light to produce white. This is something that is done inside the glass picture tube.
In your case, one color (blue is stronger) and the others are weaker.
It probably had not been used for a while. SOMETIMES, the weaker colors will get stronger with use. Adjust the brightness and picture controls to get the closest you can to a black and white picture, and then add the amount of color that seems right to you. Use the TV and hope for the best. It will improve, but 2%, 10%, or 50%; I do not know. The proper repair is to replace the glass picture tube, which is not an option at this time. So, turn it on, play games, and HOPE for the best.

Zenith Model SY2551S 1996 27" - Green Tint

The core problem with the green tint is the aging of the picture tube, and can be compensated a bit by using either the green drive control usually located on a printed circuit board on the neck of the picture tube or on the main chassis. There will be 3 main controls which will adjust the red and blue as well. If these controls are not present then you will need to get into the service menu and adjust it from there. Don't adjust anything else as you can make the set much worse. Also remember that in order to make these internal adjustments while watching a black and white picture (turn the color all the way down) you will have your hands and arms near live circuits that could shock you and cause injury to yourself as well as break parts inside the set when you pull back after being zapped (voice of experience here) Of course if you can do all this by the service menu then you won't even have to remove the back of the TV.
