Why does my KD-32FS170 32" Sony Trinitron screen have blue hues

I have a KD-32FS170 32" Sony Trinitron that i picked up for free the other day. When i turn it on,the video comes through on my Wii, though everything has a blue hue to it. Ive tried to change the color settings but it has little to no effect on it what so ever. Would really appreciate any advice on this because I want to keep this TV!

If you turn all of the color out of the TV, the picture should be black and white. If that picture is not a true black and white picture, the TV will produce a color picture that has that behind it. It takes the proper mixture of red, green and blue light to produce white. This is something that is done inside the glass picture tube.
In your case, one color (blue is stronger) and the others are weaker.
It probably had not been used for a while. SOMETIMES, the weaker colors will get stronger with use. Adjust the brightness and picture controls to get the closest you can to a black and white picture, and then add the amount of color that seems right to you. Use the TV and hope for the best. It will improve, but 2%, 10%, or 50%; I do not know. The proper repair is to replace the glass picture tube, which is not an option at this time. So, turn it on, play games, and HOPE for the best.

Sony Trinitron picture turning green hues


Nowadays CRT's do not have good quality shadow masks anymore. After heating up a little they can give a so called "blooming" effect giving a blue an yellow leaf effect large over the screen. Reason nonparallelity in deformation of the shadow mask.

Probably the optics block. It needs to be replaced.

However, it looks like you're in luck. Sony will reimburse you.
