Check your cables on the back of the TV and cable box. You either have it connected wrong, or they are loose. If you are using red green and blue, make sure that you are tightly in the red green and blue connectors. If you are using yellow white and red, then make sure you don't have the yellow in the green spot.
Not really a solution, sorry, but I've got the very same problem. I haven't noticed the time before tv faults, but nontheless, it greenscreens or like in your case, redscreens as well. I've been told to open the back, which I did to check the status of the capicitors, which I've done. But, the capacitors "seem" fine. No bulging or popped tops. So, I'm at a stand still...not sure what to do at this point. If someone gives you solution, I sure would appreciate your forwarding it on to me. Thanks. Robert
You might have the yellow for video, white, and red for audio (composite connection) plugged into the component plugs green, blue, red for video, white, and red for audio (component connection) somehow combined together on the back of your TV to whatever source your watching.
It should be color to color from your source to your TV.
It's that or only the green plug is plugged in for the component video. Hope this helps.
If you tried the yellow composite cable "in every single hole" it wasn't exactly 'exactly' following the manual then, was it?
Are you using component cabels, too (red, green and blue). Mis-wiring them will give you B/W or other wierd visuals.
Your TV's inputs and what is selected by the TV's controls would determine which cables' input it display. You could prove whether the composite is the culprit by removing it while viewing the TV. If the picture goes away, THAT cable is carrying the video you're watching. Otherwise, maybe you need to select the component input and check the conenction of each wire while watching.
Your picture tubes are weak or you need to do whats called a grey scale adjustment. In other words you need to put on a totally B&W movie or test pattern and adjust the red , green, and the blue screens to the best B&W you can get. Then you need to adjust the CRT drives to the best grey scale. If you do not know what this is, I'm afraid you should call out a pro to assist you with this alignment, as if you go messing around, and do not know what you are doing, you can make the set landfill material. Not for a novice to do. Good Luck
Your missing the red drive on the set. Its most likly the picture tube. Its a possibility that the red drive circuit could be not working so the best thing to do is take off the gree picture tube socket and put the green board on the red tube. Of course do all this when the set is unplugged. if you have no tv experience. its not a good idea to be messing around inside of these sets.
