Red haze over takes the picture as unit warms

The unit appears fine when it is turned on, but as it warms up dark colors almost seem to cahnge to a red tint. It is getting progressivley worse. I;ve tried to adjust the color settings (tine, color, etc.) but the red keeps fading into the picture.

Toshiba tv has dark picture cant hardly see want get bright


If it's a old style projection screen pry off front grid, you,ll see a trapezoidal mirror this often becomes hazed smoke, dirt, ect. Make sure set is unplugged DO NOT ASSUME THEIR IS NO SHOCK HAZZARD BECAUSE SET IS UNPLUGGED(see capacitors) be careful and clean mirror with damp cloth and glass cleaner try not to spray as safety percotion, their are 3 tubes red , green, blue, green is th dominaent color if you know how turn blue HVU UP 1st( CLEAN picture tube lens 1st) These type of picture tube have clear poly glycol ( anti freeze) in lens unit to cool and is part of the optical system. I this fluid becomes contaminated then cost of repair may exceed value of unit, then increase red value I just thought you may bee able to do the color via menu not sure, if picture has a green tent at start this should help good luck , lot me know what you see.

Screen is the color blue?


That isn't convergence that does that. There are "screen" trimmers, if someone has messed them up you can get all one color, but the usual cause is the picture tube going bad. The screen trimmers are on the PC board on the gun (narrow) end of the CRT. Some trimmers are color drive and others are color black level, or "screen". Don't adjust the color drives, it is a delicate balancing act to get them right. Find the one labelled blue and turn it down. If all you can get is too dark, turn the red and green up, just enough to see a dim color haze in a blank picture. Balance them out so the haze is gray. Then turn them all down just a hair so the screen is just black. Then try a picture. If you can't get gray on a blank screen then go to the high voltage transformer (the one that can kill you if you touch the wrong part) and adjust the "screen" control on its side up (it adjusts all the colors together). If you still can't get gray, one or more of the color guns is weak, and you may as well chuck it.
Of course it could also be a bad blue drive transistor, but fixing that takes more expertise than you can get from a forum.
Actually, just getting the TV open and propped up so it doesn't fall over is a job in itself...

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.

Color red seems to be more prominant...than other


I've had this problem with my projection TV recently. I would say your lens/lamp is to blame. It might be time to change it, depends on the last time it was changed, most of the time, the TV will tell you that it needs to be changed, but not always. I think your best bet is the TV lamp.

Picture Problem


In that set its usually a bad picture tube. The lines you are seeing are called retrace lines. You can take it to a shop and they may be able to rejuvenate the tube

Dark picture


use the advanced options page and reset the factor blue and red convergence defaults then do re apply the auto color defaults color at first it seemed very red (which is good because red was the missing factor in the green picture) but after reseting all the color and tints to the normal ranges I then reset the color auto correct again and all seems fine.
