If this is an old 52 projection with bad color your oil in the tubes may need to be changed, focus & screen can be adjusted to improve picture. Changing oil is something a tech defintly has to do. Call a local tech & get pricing. Then u can weigh your options. Also tubes may be weak. If they need to be changed probably won't be worth it.
