Has there been a magnet or unshielded speakers near the TV? Sounds like the tv needs to be degaussed. You will have to bring it into a repair shop to have this done.

This is because of the magnetic interference, you better isolate the TV from the devices producing heavy magnetic interferences like Speakers Microwave, Cellphones and Cordless phones. Then go the main menu in that you will find setup option , in the setup option go to the picture setup you will find option called degauss just click on that, the screen will flash for a second and everything will be alright. Frequent degaussing is not advisable as it reduce the life of the projection tube.

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 sony kdf50we655 TV. Over the last 12 months, the picture has been increasingly "pixelating" with royal blue dots. It started with the lower right corner of the screen fading from black...

This is not a LAMP issue, it is much more serious than that, you need to have it checked by a certified technician, it sounds like the image prossessor

RCA D61130 picture has a blue haze comes and goes?

The cooling fluid needs changed in the tubes and the algae wiped off the crt faces. This is not a do-it-yourself unless you're pretty darn good at fixing things.

No Blue

The bulls eye is what us TV repair guys call it. It is a perfect description. The tube is good. The automatic degausing circuit is not working because the black square thermistor D805 needs resoldering on the bottom of the board. You will find that a magnet will affect it, and a degaussing coil will make it look perfect for 1 week. Soldering the thermistor is a permanent solution.

The picture tube on a TV can be magnitized by the Earth's magnetic field. The noise heard when you turn a TV on (usually followed by a static noise on the face on the TV) is called degauss. What this does it remove any magnetic variations on the tube due to things like the magnetic field and speakers. However, changes to the TV in orientation to the Earths magnetic field will cause the tube to have a magnetic bias. This is most prominent when turned 90 degrees. The easy way to clear this is to turn the TV off for a little while and then turn it back on. But remember that any movement once it is on can cause the discolorations to reappear. My suggestion would be to turn the tv after you've moved it to the location you'd like to view it.

Green blur bot-R and up-L corner and no audio

If a standard TV has color splotches in 1 or 2 corners of the screen, it is possible that a large magnet, such as a large speaker, is or was near the set and has magnetized the picture tube. The set has a built-in degaussing coil but it is small and will only demagnetize small magnetic fields. Make sure there are no magnets near the set and if the colors are still off, have the picture tube demagnetized with a strong portable demagnetizer. As for the audio, when there are audio output jacks on the back of the set then there is usually an option to turn the speakers off. Some sets have a switch somewhere and some sets have a setting in the audio page of the on-screen menu. Look for a switch or go into the menu, navigate to the audio page and look for a speaker setting (ON / OFF) and make sure the speakers are set to ON.
