Pink screen Our tv has a pink and grainy screen. It was fine yesterday, but this happened when I turned it on this morning. We had issues with green lines previously, which my husband fixed by fooling with some knobs on the front. Any suggestions?

Re: Pink screen

Pink and grainy almost certainly means CRT coolant leak on
signal PCBoard. Unplug set from AC, then take off lower front
cabinet. With good light, look for liquid spill on PCB.Touch it,
feels heavier than water,but not oily,clear color.Repair would be
expensive,requires replacing at least one CRT + clean PCB.
Most likely,the green tube is the leaker.........T.

Good Day,

Sounds like the TV's convergence circuit has failed:
*Call an Authorized Service Center and them give you an estimate cost of the repair, or
*Repair it your self; get KIT 10 locally or B&D Enterprises
Good luck, big IRISH.

Screen is green and pink

This can happen if your component cables are not pushed in all the way. Sometimes they become loose, so just make sure they are pushed in all the way.
