Red, green and blue colours diveded on my TV

ok well "tube" tellys as they are called use an electro magnet to keep the picture stable and colours correct its called gaussing now if you have a speaker or something magnetic nearby it will stuff up the colors but only normally producing colors like purple,green, or white
if you have colors across the screen (that aren't caused by magnetic force) then you need to take it to a repairer or decide wether or not to buy a new one this issue can turn out to be quite hard to fix and can be expensive the different colored electron guns may be burning or burnt out causing pale color or it could be as simple as a power transistor in the H.V supply has shorted out..and causing power issues to the tube.
hope this helps,ben

Samsung 50" DLP TV turns itself off

I had the same problem which also included the picture having streaks of red in it sometimes too. I found that both problems were due to the TV getting too hot inside. I bought a $7 small 4" fan from Walmart and pointed it at the back "door" of the TV (where the bulb can be replaced). Both problems have disappeared which I think is due to not letting the interior get too hot.

Not sure if there is an internal fan to cool the parts inside, but if there is it is not working well enough.

HITACHI ULTRASCAN HD TV w/Model # 43FDX01B (Digital ProjectionTV)

i am not sure these is going to work but give it a try. after useing the tv for a long time you can get a problem with the lineing of the three picture colors may drift away from each other causeing the problem you have, they move because of moveing the tv or the viberation of the tv.  you can to one of two things if you have a remote for the tv go to the menu and look for the convergence adj. setting then you are going to get close to you tv and press the small but the says the same thing now on the screen you are going to see a grid the you can fix youself with the remote just by pressing the up, down,left, rigth buttons and the menu button to change the color, to aline the red line and blue line with the middle line till you get only a white line going up and down  if the doesn't work just unplugg th power cord and what for about 4 hours and then plug it in and turn it on again. if after you do all these if you still have the problem then you either have two choices call to see how much it will cost to repair it or toss it out and get a new one

TV locked with blue screen

Try resetting the TV to factory settings thusly:

Turn on the TV. While holding down the RESET button on the remote
control, press the POWER button on the TV. (The TV will turn itself off, then
back on again.) Release the RESET button.

It takes 5 to 7 minutes to turn on my Magnavox HD TV

IFyou feel confident and can locate switch mode power supply with back removed.
Try warming switchmode power supply before turning TV on.
If TV turns on normaly then there are some small capcitors that are a common cause of this fault.
Otherwise look for DRY or CRACKED solder jointson PCB
BUT DON'T do any of the above if your are not confident send it to a TV repaiman.

Screen has turned a blue tint after turning itself off

I will not bore you with advice which you cannot follow. (90 % probability, looks like the Blue Signal Video Output Transistor has become faulty). This is a very simple "fixable' problem for a Professional Technician. Should not take more than 15-20 minutes.Nothing you can do. Call for Professional help.
