Rca tv screen gone red

I have an older (standard tube) rca tv, probably 25'' screen. The screen went red/pink but there is still sound. Any simple fix for this?

    When you say "cold" solder joints do you mean that the joints have cracked or severed? And if I find one that is, do I just solder it back to the board?

  • mdcarp May 20, 2009

    Ok, I got the back off and looked at the board next to the tube. I looked at every solder joint and they all appeared to be intact. I did find the model number though...it is a RCA F25422. Let me know if you have any more thoughts.

If your able to take the back off and have experience in soldering then you can look on the CRT board on the picture tube for cold solder joints, it should be quite visible. There are 3 transistors that look identical so I would look those over closely. Those are your Red, Green and Blue Video outputs. If you choose not to and want to take it in to a service center try and find one with Free Est. Notice on your screen if you have diagonal lines, if you don't, that's a good sign. Let me know what you decide!

I was watching my television and all of a sudden the picture went snowy.


Only the older Analog type televisions get snow from lack of signal. The modern Digital TV gets pixilated. like missing pieces.
And on re-reading the title of your question, it does say CRT...... As in Cathode Ray Tube. (I thought they were all gone now, all around the world) Anyhow.... has your country switched off it's analog tv transmissions. This would give you snow. Because there is no Transmission. Seems unlikely they would stop transmission in the middle of what your watching.
So
Do you have a Digital Set Top Box feeding the TV? This would pick up Digital TV transmissions and convert them to your old CRT TV Screen. Knowing this should help you diagnose the problem.
Check the antenna input to your digital box and connections from the STB to your TV. They probably use a Yellow video cable and a Red & White (Sound Left & Right). You didn't mention if sound was still there?
Perhaps someone has pressed the remote control and the TV has jumped to one of the Antenna Channel inputs rather than the Video input (Yellow Video input)?
Might be that Simple.....
Good Luck

Zenith TV has me seeing red.


The red gun in the picture tube itself is shorted on. You will have to replace the picture tube itself to fix the problem. Probably want to just buy a new set. Sorry!

Seeing red !


I had a television that went to a bright shade of blue.A friends neighbor worked for sony television plant where the new tubes came down the assembly line.His job was to make sure tubes were working fine,if one color was dominant then his job was to smack the front center of the tube with a rubber mallot to fix the problem.He suggested i try that with my tube while the set was on.It worked and solved my blue problem.Apparently he explained,the gun connections in the tube came loose and to fix it was to smack it this caused the connection to reweld itself.For you I would use the palm of an open hand and smack the tube dead center with a good hard smack.Dont be afraid of breaking the glass because its very thick and strong.Give this a try.Hope it helps.Good luck!

Red to pink screen after 5-10 minutes of play....


This is not the tube, it's most likely the colour controller and system function ic has gotten scrambled, taking this to a tech to re program should not cost more than about $150 AU
