Re: Red is off, and dark
By your comment, the red being off, I assume you mean that it won't line-up with the other two colors. A common problem in this unit is convergence. In this unit Q751 and Q752, both are stk392-110 should probably be changed. For a more reliable amps use an stk392-150 instead. Also check all the 1.2 ohm resistors that feed the amps. They're marked in board location starting around R7711 and should be tested for value. Any that have changed replace them.

You can try adjusting the Red color output. (Very touchy adjustment)
you take off the front cover/speaker cover, there should be a access panel. Behind
that, there should be a small square black box with 6 screws on it.
This is the focus block. (At least this is where most of them are
It sounds more like you may need less red in the mix. There is a screw for each color. R, G, and B. Do not
mess with the focus screws, just the ones labeled 'SCREEN.'
Go to an unused input where the screen should be dark. Barely turn the red down in a dark room so that the red spot is at the same level as the Blue and Green.
Use an insulated screwdriver and DO NOT TOUCH the focus block and ESPECIALLY NOT the back of it. Very HIGH VOLTAGE. I found that out the hard way.
Do not turn any of these up too high or damage may occur and the TV may detect a short and shut off.
have found that if the three colors are adjusted in a dark room to
where the 3 color spots (R/G/B) are just barely visible on the screen
at equal levels, there is a pretty good color balance.
sorry but those adjustment are not the right one , to correct the color problem u have frist , u need to hire a tv tech , tv would has to adjust the screen and focus back to normal after that , need to replace the oil on green and blue picture tube
Red picture tube needs screen voltage adjust. Open fornt or back of TV and look for a black square looking box with adjustment knobs. Look for red screen adj and slowly turn rt or lft until lines just disappear. If screen goes too bright tv will shut down, just turn back on again and retry
First check what color of faint lines comes then reduce Screen Volts in TV of that CRT (tube) Take off lower front cover, speaker grille of TV, there you will see focus control block that has 6 control knobs, upper 3 knobs are focus adjustment of red-green-blue CRTs and lower 3 knobs are screen volt controls for red-green-blue CRTs. Turn screen volt control knob CCW to reduce screen volts of desired CRT. Put TV on any free AV input so screen will be dark enough to adjust screen volts. Thanks.
turn down the red screen control slightly the box is located behind the grille 6 knobs on it look carefully for the screen making on it for red do not adjust any other control best done in a dark room with no source in a video input if the tv will not auto align you have the control backed off to far
Good Day, Butchilee,
Sounds like you have patience, hope your TV has some trace left. Hit recommends that you replace the originals with
STK-392-150's and the resistors. Replace said items with care then back down on the screen/ focus controls and gradually bring the screens up until you have pic, adjust focus. Go into customer menu and adjust color down, set brightness to 50%, contrast to 100%. Then go back and adjust the screens for proper, black/white, tracking. AND It's best to double check the soldering connections.
Good Luck, Big Irish.
I tried the solution that was posted for this problem and it worked!
Just remove the Low front panel by removing the two bottom screws that are covered by two screw covers, then remove the second panel (black) by removing the 4 screws then you'll notice a module with 6 adjustment knobs, get a small screw driver, and with the t.v. on, being carefull , and with somebody accross the room looking at the screen begin with the lower left knob and turn left very slowly and ask the person across the room to let you know if the screen is better or not, after this I had to adjust the green as well so, I adjusted the next knob over to the left. Do this adjustment carefully and try to remenber the original position of the knobs in case you have to go back.f
Sounds like you are describing retrace lines that could indicate that your CRTs or something in the drive circuits are bad.. Check the resistors on the CRT sockets to see if they are in tolerance. If they are try turning the red and blue screen adjustments down just a little this should take the lines away. You will however be needing service in the not to far future. Turning the screens down should help if the resistors check out. Let me know if you need anything further.
