Re: color probs

The CRT slot aperature mask (shadow mask) is magnetized. If it does not correct itself after several cycles of turning it off, waiting ten minutes, and turning back on, you will need to have it degaussed (demagnetized). Any decent servicer will have the required tool (a coil of wire that looks like a small steering wheel). You used to be able to buy one of these, but they probably are not available any more. I made mine in 1965 from the wire out from a 1940's TV focus coil and still use it. You could use most anything (like a brushless induction motor or transformer) with an AC magnetic field for this, but it might not be strong enough. I'll just bet this problem will fix itself, however.

Sony trinitron 32 " purple area on screen

Check any magnatic device near TV which causes purple color on screen. That device can be Speaker, Electronic toy, Watch like that carring piece of magnet inside. Remove that device and turn OFF your TV for half a hour, then power again. Hope the color will be fine n normal on entire screen.

Color "burn" in corner

well i think this is caused by a magnetic field created by your speaker. is the speaker the same location for that color burn (lower left corner)? the only way to get rid of that is to remove your speaker or changed it. for all i know speakers used in tv's are magnetically shielded to prevent distortion in the CRT, because their location is usually near the crt. good luck!

TV has a greenish tint

Screen green and purple in two corners

I am in agreement with the second solution. TVs, when moved from one location to another have a tendency to show color patches in the corners. A few days of usage, and the auto degaussing circuits will clear the problem. Also make sure that there are no Magnet Sources nearby (Un sheilded Speakers, some Power supply of amplifiers, A 2-in-1 music system, your kids walky-talky toy, etc.) Pravin
