My T.V. has a funny color .. more of double viewing with purple and green what can I do to fix this?
MyT.V. has a picture which was always properly colored. Recently,seemingly overnight, the color is primarily purple and green uniformlyover the entire screen with a double view of people and words on screen
What is the problem?

Degaussing means to demagnify. Not applicable with a projection tv. You have a severe convergence problem. Either a component failure, a speaker or other powerful magnet in very close proximity or someone figured out how to adjust (or misadjust) it.

This television set, as well as most rear-projections, is prone to convergence driver problems. There are two large chips (STK392-110's) in the TV that need to be replaced, as well as some resistors that are likely damaged as well. Any competent TV repair shops should be able to repair this TV for 200-300 dollars. It is important to note that if the back of the TV is taken off without the proper prep., the Digital input (DVI) will be disabled permanently.
Your set has a problem with its convergence circuitry. In many cases this can be simply failure of solder connections to the output integrated circuits due to the heat they generate, and resoldering them fixes the trouble. This is a repair you might be able to try for yourself if you have experience with electronic soldering. Or there might be component failure which would require the equipment to isolate and replace the bad parts, which is a repair level best left to professionals. In some cases where the set has digital convergence, the failure might be in the computer control portion. This means the repair might range from only a very few dollars in parts to quite a lot of dollars, plus whatever labor rate the servicer charges. If you aren't looking for an excuse to replace the set, getting an estimate on a professional repair would be the best suggestion.
Degaussing is deliberately applying a magnetic field to the face of a picture tube. This is done to neutralize the effect of other magnetic fields that can cause color distortion. Degaussing isn't done in projection sets because they have separate tubes for each color.
Your convergence has failed and needs to be repaired. Once quick test is to goto your convergence menu and see if you can adjust red and blue. If not its has failed and needs to be fixed. You can call in a repair shop or you can get the parts and instructions from www.TvRepairKits.comand do the repair yourself. Its a fairly easy DIY fix. Here is an example video
