Blue Horizontal arching lines, Blue hue at power on

if you take the front cover off the tv, you will see 6 little nobe, the top 3 are focus, bottom 3 are brightness, should be RED-BLUE-GREEN in order from left to right, find the one that is blue, turn it down a quarter turn, should fix the problem

Faint red lines in a curved arch like pattern

For this problem, what you have to do is here I found this solution: Right below your speakers on the right and left side are tabs. Pull out the tabs and remove the screw on eachside. Once that is done remove the speaker cover and you will see a fiber board cover in the middle of the tv, there will most likley be twist ties holding some wires, to make it easier to work remove the ties. Now remove the screws on the fiber board and pull it off. You should see 3 adjustments on the top for focus, do not touch those. Below the focus adjustments on the bottom is the blue, red, and green adjustments (they should be labeled). All you have to do is turn adjustment screw slightly to the left(or counter clockwise) and it should clear right up. That should do the trick, Hope this is helpful. Please dont forget your rating.

sounds like the blue crt is shorted and thats causing the red voltage to increase causing retrace lines then shutting your set down. You can get new CRTs at the following link with free shipping but they are pricey.

Red arching lines

is this that you are adjusting called convergence? If so then if it's really bad you can try to reset convergence, if not then the red needs to be aligned up with green first then blue on green. Can you provide a picture of what it looks like?

One of your convergence IC's has burned out or cracked loose and needs to be replaced or resoldered. This should be done by someone experienced in repairing and realigning convergence circuits.
