SOURCE: The colors on my Westing House digital tv are gone. Everything is almost white.

It looks like the brightness has been jacked up to 100. Can you open the menu on your TV and see what the brightness is set to?

Why did my Quasar TV (1993) picture go out again, blue line across the screen? We had it repaired, 3 months later no picture, same blue line.

Sounds to me like something else is causing those parts to fail. It should be under warranty but depends on the repair shop. Why not just buy a new one.

Here are some choices for a new one:

RCA 42 LED42C45RQ Class LED 1080p 60Hz 3 4 ultra slim HDTV

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

Good day.

The problem with your unit is that when your tube was replaced, it was not degaussed or demagnitized. The purpose of such is to distribute the color evenly unto the entire television matrix.
You can try to demagnetized it by rotating a magnet around the surface( but not so near) of the picture tube while it is operating.

Also, please check for the degaussing coil around the rear portion of the tube was returned and also check for loose contacts.

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.
