RCA model #f27648 reds missing from picture

It sounds to be a video output stage circuit fault. Check all the solder terminals at its CRT base card, including the solder terminals of the CRT base to the card. Re-solder all the suspected solder terminals by applying a little more fresh solder. Contact any service technician. Check the solder terminals of Red color output transisotor. If needy, replace it with a new one with same number printed on it. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Viewing it in "Mosaic" will make surf easy. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts there.
The fault is 'one colour predominant/absent screen'

Connecting dvd player to tv

the back of dvd is easy because it only has outputs with color code, the inputs and outputs on the back of the tv are grouped if you look closely on the back. select video 1 as an input on tv, and start with the far left yellow jacks on the back of tv, connect yellow rca cable and check for pic on tv, if not move to next yellow jack on back of tv, until you get a pic, connect the red and white right below the yellow jack that gave you the picture and you should also have sound

Tv out of foucs

These procedures are from the owners manual, go into menu and then picture quality and then: Convergence The Convergence feature lets you adjust the TV’s three tubes. When the TV tubes’ images are precisely aligned, they create the color images you see on the screen. Over time, the picture can drift out of alignment (this is normal). If your picture seems fuzzy or has a yellow tint, using Convergence could correct this misalignment. Only one convergence is needed for all inputs, regardless of the signal format. Note: Make sure the TV has been on for at least 30 minutes (TV needs to warm up for best results) before starting Auto Converge or Red/Blue Centering. When you select the Convergence feature, a submenu appears with three options: Auto Converge Automatically aligns the projection lenses to self-correct color images. You’ll see flashing squares of color dance across the screen (this is normal). Note: After performing auto convergence, use the Blue Centering and Red Centering menus to fine tune convergence in the center of the screen, if necessary. Blue Centering Aligns the blue and green images to fine-tune the picture. Red Centering Aligns the red and green images to fine-tune the picture. Note: The ability to change channels is disabled when adjusting the convergence options. The TV must be tuned to a usable signal to converge the picture.

My tv sceen has a stain that makes anything white look yellow.

The color image is comprised of three colors, Red, Green, and Blue.
All the other colors are mixtures of those colors. The yellow picture indicates that your set is lacking sufficient blue drive.

First of all check to make sure that the tint control is not misadjusted.
The next thing is dependent upon the age of your television. If it's an older set that yellow tint is a sign of an aging picture tube.
If it's a newer set, less than 5 years old, have it analyzed by a electronics technician that is familiar with televisions if he is skilled enough he will know right away if it's the picture tube or not.

F25216bc RCA 25 inch TV. Color is distorted with a heavy red tint

You either have a bad CRT or a Shorted Red Output IC/Transistor. One other possibility is if
someone turned the Screen Control down if it is accessible from the back of the set.
Hope this helps,

RCA CTC203 no red colour

Did you change the resistor by yourself? I am not sure if your TV has manual adjust on the back of the TV that you can adjust. Some times turning the TV Off and unplug it from the wall helps because it resets the TV. Check your Back ground color and see what is the dominating color. Blue, Green or Red. If this doesn't work please call a professional to look at it.

If, when you turn down the color control all the way you have a black and red picture, then your picture tube is most likely weak and it's time to replace the set. If the black and white picture is normal, then the set could have a problem in the chroma circuit. Either way, it would not likely be worth repairing.
