Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions
HI I have a zenith sg2795bg that had placed ion storage about a year and a half ago that now has a blue tint to it. the unit was in a climate control storage facility and was standing upright the whole time. I was told that there should some adjustments inside but I've never been inside a tv before and have no clue what I'm looking at. I found several knobs inside but I dont want to touch them for fear of messing the tv up worse

Many TV repair shops have what's called a tube rejuvinator. The modern versions can perform amazing changes to TV tubes. Many other techs treat them like snake oil but believe me I've seen the results of these machines and it makes one wonder why everyone doesn't use them. The new ones are logic controlled whilst the old fashioned or home made models aren't and can cause the tube to die completely. I've had a large TV not showing a picture unless all the lights were turned off and even then it was dim. 20 minutes later the TV was operating as it should. Two years later the same customer saw me in the main street and said the TV was still going like new. It doesn't work on every tube but I never had a failure with the unit I had. Mind you it cost $1200.00 but it made it's money back a few times. It's worth finding a tech who has one. It can be done in the home with no mess and only involves the back of the set and the neck board being removed. All up 30 to 40 minutes work. BMW

This TV doesn't have an AV input, so there are no input jacks other than the antenna connector. If you want to connect a device that has only AV outputs (your red, white and yellow plug) you will need an RF converter. This will take the AV signals and convert them to a channel 3 or 4 signal you can tune in on the set.
But since you don't seem interested in spending any money, you'll probably not like to hear that the converter runs around $15 most places. Take heart, there is an alternative. Find a VCR (if you don't have one already) that has an RF output. Many of the the newer DVD/VCR combos only have AV outputs. You're looking for one that has an "out to TV" threaded connector on the back. These units already have an RF converter built in. Connect your AV plugs to the line in jacks on the VCR and switch to that input, and you can use your video game or DVD player through the VCR.

The red gun in the picture tube itself is shorted on. You will have to replace the picture tube itself to fix the problem. Probably want to just buy a new set. Sorry!
