Mitsubishi VS-4541 too much red

My grandmother recently rec'd a handed down Mitsubishi VS-4541.  The picture quality seems way off...too much red, as evidenced by a distinct red cast when switching channels when the screen would normally be all black.  I have attempted to adjust the picture quality via the on-screen menu's to no avail.  Any advice is much appreciated.

Re: Mitsubishi VS-4541 too much red

The set is old and the picture tubes are probably weak. you can pop off the front grill, remove the protective panel to expose the picture tube sockets. On the sockets are controls to increase or decrease the intensity of the colors. The red is on the left ,green center and blue right. Go to a B&W picture or turn the color off, then adjust for the best grey screen.
