You have a projection TV - basically a red, green, and blue spotlight is shown onto the back of an opaque screen that creates the color picture you see. The spotlights you are seeing is common for a TV of this vintage and type.

According to the user's manual, you should ideally be sitting no closer than 10 feet to the screen.

Sitting closer to the screen may enhance the phenomenon you are experiencing.

Sitting here watch tv and suddenly the picture went warped and discolored. Picture looks like the colors are seperated. blue green and red.


Your TV has convergence chips that need to be replaced by a tech. These keep tour red green and blue lights in sync with one another in order to give you a sharp color picture. When they fail your colors seperate.

I recently purchased a new Samsung Blue Ray player. My previous Sony DVD player used the blue,green, red cords plugged into DVD imput, and I used Coaxial for sound. The Blue Ray only uses HDMI, which the...


Optical carries only 5.1 sound, no video. HDMI carries both video and sound. If your receiver doesn't have HDMI, check your TV for optical output. You can go BluRay to TV via HDMI, then TV to receiver via optical.

If you don't have optical out on your tv, you're going to need either a receiver with HDMI or a BluRay player with component output (blue, green, red).

I have a hitachi rptv model #43FWX20B and the picture has a red tint to it. Opened back up and red green and blue bulbs light up. red bulb stays bright while blue and green go dim to bright as tv plays....


Howdy;
Since you don't have any white lines with the red screen/picture I would say that the red bulb (CRT) is conducting too much. There is an adjustment control for that. The 'sceen' control is behind the speaker cover and service cover. Turn red screen control slightly to the left until you get a good black and white picture.

Good Luck, Big Irish.

Green & red tint


Most likely nothing you can do to fix this. CRT TVs use 3 colors to make an image on the screen (Red, Green, and Blue). If you're only seeing red and green then chances are the blue has stopped working. You can replace certain parts in the TV but for a 27" TV you'll probably end up paying more for the repair than a new TV.

I don't recommend taking the cover off and trying to fix TV yourself without training. CRTs have a lot of electricity stored in them (even after turned off) and you could accidentally electrocute yourself.

Seeing the blue green and red lights through the screen


I hate to be the one to say it, but it sounds like the mirror broke in transit. I've had several where this happened without the person handling it noticed, or at least said they didn't. Usually on a 51" magnavox you must first have a star driver or a star bit. For some reason they decided to change from the standard when building these. First, pullthe screen saver and frame towards you with both hands. There are clips that hold it in place and it will pop back in place easily. Then remove all star screws around screen frame and slide out carefully. Screen can slide out of frame so hold on from bottom and top. This will reveal the tubes and mirror. Most screens and mirrors are 100.00-300.00 so use caution not to scratch anything. Good luck, Russmann.

Check settings first to make sure no one changed anything out of the ordinary. Are the shadows that of a color or darkened shadow? It could be out of convergence, which can be corrected in the menu - or it could be low quality video cables to. Also, if there is no green, does a white color show up when you're in a menu mode (Red+Blue+Green = White Image)? If so, then the green picture tube is working and it's just a color adjustment, otherwise you may have to invest in a new green picture tube.
