Try using the MENU button on your remote control to go into the TV picture settings menu. Change the mode to NATURAL, You can also try to manually adjust the color in the COLOR SETTINGS mode.

If that doesn't work, check out the handy troubleshooting chart in TV color problems and see if another solution will work. I hope this helps!

Hi, Your tv model has a small light blue color button inside for manual adjustmnet mode. You will have to remove the front covering below the screen. its just attached with velcrow. Then there will be a centre wooden pannel with the the switching box screwed to tv front with around six screws.Open this panel and look to the left corner of the chasis boards in front of a small metallic box. Thats the switch you have to press to get into manual adjustment mode. use remote to adjust the colors. once done press it again to exist. Visit to find out more about tv FAQs.

The convergence is way off. You may be able to adjust it thru a service mode menu. You'd need to get the model number first.
How old is the set?

Service mode

To enter service mode, push and hold the [Menu] button on the set. While holding, push and release the [Power] button, then the [Vol +] button.
You will now have some information on the screen: "P0 V0"
To actually be able to change these values, you must push [Vol +] on the remote so the information reads V76. Then pushing on the Channel +/- will change the "P" value.
P1 - 3 are error codes. If there is a problem with the set that can be self-diagnosed, the "V" will report the code. These codes are available in the RCA repair manual.
P4 - 7 control the horizontal size, shift, vertical size and shift.
You may also find a summary leaflet for the service tech clipped somewhere inside the chassis. The procedures for getting into the service mode, as well as the service items of interest will be there.
If you're attempting to adjust color or geometry errors, you'll need the Video Essentials DVD, Laser Disc or some other source of test material.

1989 RCA color track 2000-model no.p46050T projection tv

Terry, bad news, there are no "factory settings" for those alignment pots, every individual pot has a distinct function, and if you look closely at the board you will see that there are pots for each color, red, green, & blue which correspond to your 3 picture tubes, every tv has to have a tech do whats called a convergence alignment when it is being built at the factory, EVERY tv is different, even if you ordered a brand new board it would need this alignment done once the new board was installed. You`ll have to call a tech for this one, no way of getting around it, hope this answers your question, more questions? feel free to email me back, good luck, BMW Rider
