Re: dark color

Have you tried polishing the projection mirror and changing the coolant in the CRTs. The mirror alone can make the picture dull. Do not use windex to clean the mirror, just a soft damp cloth then dry. You can access the mirror hrough the back panel its a bit of a reach but its do able from the rear the mirror is directly above the rear acess panel.

Pictue is dark as hell

use the advanced options page and reset the factor blue and red convergence defaults then do re apply the auto color defaults color at first it seemed very red (which is good because red was the missing factor in the green picture) but after reseting all the color and tints to the normal ranges I then reset the color auto correct again and all seems fine.
