    i have a solid red line down the middle of my tv also. i tried tapping on it as suggested. it didn't do anything.
    my tv also shuts off on it own. never know when it is going to do it. sometimes it is several times a day, other times it can go a week or so without shutting off.

Unfortunately you have a bad/open grid on your screen, what i would suggest is that is just tap on the screen towards the bottom , this where all the connections are made on the circuit board. if it goes away intermittently, then you have a loose connection. i would look for a local authorize repair center and have them reconnect the cables and see if that solves your problem. If not then you have a bad row of pixels.

SOURCE: thin red line down the center of my screen

I'm afraid you'll need a tech on this one.  It could be the panel itself which would be beyond economical repair. If you're lucky it may be a bad connector/connection.

Changed crt coolant, better picture. red squiggily line starting at top center of screen, runs about a third of the way down. thought i saw scratch or small crack in green crt "c" lens. would this cau


Sounds like you may have just left one of the wires loose from the red tube. Not likely an issue from the gren tube but you can always cover the top of the lens and let just green shine up. That may help narrow it down also.

Here is more detailed info for you also.....

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from TvRepairKits.com . It includes replacement coolant,step by step instructions, support, etc.

You can use this screen to move your picture up a bit and get rid of the line. If it doesnt work the first time, move it a little more. Good Luck!

Red Dots


You can get rid of the red dots by adjusting the V-scan voltage down, it's on the panel sticker inside the unit, you can find the test point on the DC to DC pcb, and the adjustment pot is on the same board, lower it as you watch the screen and only lower it enough to rid the screen of the dots
