Toshiba 51h85c rear projection screen is red!!

We have a 2-3 year old Toshiba rear projection model 51h85c tv. The picutre all of a sudden went really red and has squiggly red lines horizontally accross the screen. It is still working like this but is very difficult to watch. It will gradually keeping changing red tones in waves accross the screen. We played with all the adjustments, color, convergence, etc with no results. Any idea??

Go into the tv menu and select the Preferences menu and set your picutre preference from Theater to Normal. The TV is currently in Theater mode, wich is for viewing with no lights on in the room. Switching it to normal lightens the pictue a lot.

Sony rear projection screen is red then tv shuts off

Can be 1 of 2 things. 1st the red tube just needs the voltage to it turned down. In the front of TV (you have to remove the lower front half of TV to access it) is a plastic square with 6 knobs. The from left to right top knobs control focus for blue,green red. The bottom knobs control voltage to each tube in same order (so lower right knob for red) turn SLOWLY to left to reduce voltage until excessive red and lines go away. If you over turn left or right set will turn off. If that does not fix it or if lines reappear then option 2 is that red picture tube is failing outright and needs replacement.
