Not the red CRT-----problem is called convergence mis-alignment.
Please provide make,model and age for accurate repair details.

I have a phillips rear projection tv model no 55PP8620/79. Its showing a a red haze and poor picture quality. How do I fix this?

If the red haze is not convergence---that requires parts.

The set has three picture tubes---with set unplugged and back cover removed clean the three large lens that are topside---as for the red haze a quick way to know what is wrong is with set on turn the color to zero----what color is the screen? Should be black and white--if red to some degree tracking or screen controls may need adjusting inside the set---Yellow picture in that situation is a different issue.

How do i find out if sony kp/57ws510 picture tube is bad

While the set is prone to bad tubes a double or 3d like image is convergence--this model uses two of the STK-392-560 CHIPS for this.

Go into customer menu and call up convergence--if off and will not adjust in any area of the screen the chips are bad.

Sony KP 48S75 Rear Projection Red Haze around objects on screen

Sometimes this can be caused by excessive dust buildup on the lens over the red picture tube, and if you have access to that part of the set, that is where I would start. If it is clean, then you could have the red tube out of focus either due to a bad focus block or if you were lucky, a minor adjustment may fix it. If the set was over 8 years old, I'd consider replacing it with a HDTV model. Check out Consumer Reports latest issue for a start.

Picture is yellow and green

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.
