Make sure no magnets, (speakers) are close to tv.
Magnets attract the color. TV's used to have to be manually
"deguassed"(demagnetized) Look for magnets placed close to TV. Speakers have magnets in them. It might save you a repair bill.

Intermitant color bursts of red, green, purple


for the color problem,most likely you do have problem with loose contact of components from C-board ( small board connected at the back of CRT "picture tube" which drives every color and size of the screen)if you have knowledge with soldering electronic component parts, resolder this board and also check main board for possible loose contact.
