Picture went all green,what happened?

Check the video output card for any loose solder terminals. Re-solder all the suspected solder terminals. This card can be located at the neck of the picture tube, directly plugged on to its back of the neck.

Check the smoothing capacitor to video output supply voltage, usually derived from any one winding of the LOT. It will come around 10uF350VDC to 47uF 350VDC range. If this capacitor is faulty, or gone less in capacitance with time, this type of fault will occur. Check the green volour output transistor on the video output card, can be located attached to the neck of the picture tube; for any loose soldering or leakage. OK.

Our 21" panasonic television is when turned on,


It is due the fault of its picture tube base socket. Picutre tube base socket can be located at the picture tube card connected at the neck of the picture tube. It is the socket that connects the picture tube pins to the circuit. It can be resoldered out and can be replaced.
Open your tv. Locate the picture tube base card, can be seen connected to the picture tube neck. It is pluged on to the picutr tube, and can be pulled out of it. Be sure not to make any tilt of shake while pulling it out. Just pull it back straight, may have to apply some backward pulling pressure. Resolder it out for the board and go for a same type and number. It can be available at most of the electronc sparepart shops. Replacing it will solve your TVs problem. OK

The color sometimes bleeds and takes over the whole picture. I have to change channels to ge it back to normal - it happens on any channel - none in particular - it is only 4 years old

You are reporting about color "spreading" I thinks. That is colour spred like taills along with picture. Red colour will show it more. There are 2 main couses for this fault. The first one is picture tube aged. The second one is low video output drive voltage. As your TV is new [I can say as it is only four yerars old], the second stated may be the fault.
Check the video output supply voltage. This voltage point can be located at the base card [a square or rectangular printed circuit board pluged into the neck of the picture tube]. It should be above 250VDC. If it is there come to the Red_Blue_Green cathode of the picture tube, [they are all also in the base card itsef]. All this voltages are almost equal to each other, provided 2 or 3 volts difference is normal. If any of them is found too low than normal, check the related videou output transistor. Check the electrolytic capacitor [usually 10MFD or so, 450v] connected to the video output voltage supply rail, and normally can be located at the base card itself. Ok
Keep children away from you, when you open the TV. Be caucious, as 25KVDC [25,000VDC] points are there inside your tv. Keep an adult beside you as a precaution. Never touch any internal part of the tv while it is switched on. Plug it out from the mains socket before doing any componet replacement, except for voltage measurements. Do wear a plastic or rubber footware when you work, and never use a metal chair.

Turn tv on the the morning has sound but no pic until tv warms up (about 15-30 mins)

Your TV has CRT socket problem. This is due to the improper contact of that socket to TVs picture tube. All TVs picture tube [otherwise says as CRT means Cathode Ray Tube] is connected with the remaining control circuit wia a picture tube base card, which can be located at the extreme back side of the picture tube. It is plughed in to it via a socket, and that socket is directly soldered to the base card. The socket mentioned above is faulty. This fault will be more at rainy and winter seasons. During these seasons, your tv will take more and more time to display picture. Because, during this seasons, humidity in the atmosphere is high.
Here replacing that CRT Socket is the only remdey. For that you have to open the back cover of your tv. Locate the base card, can be seen at the back of the picture tube neck plugged in. Unplug it with care, not to damage the picture tube neck or its pins. Do not apply high pressur or sudden jerks. It may break the neck of the picture tube as it is very tender with respect to the other parts of the picture tube.
Desolder the socket from the base board, it may have 9 to 12 connections to be desoldered. Take it out, and go for the same type number and pin confugaration. Replace it with the new one.

NB: Keep children away from you when you do this work. Be sure to unplug the TVs power chord from the wall socket before attempting to open it. Keep out all the connections to the tv, and make it idle. Ok

Sound no pic. after on for 20min then turned off back on and pic. now it will not get pic just sound

Your TVs CRT socket is faulty. CRT socket is one that connect the base of the picture tube, and can be located on the base card of the tv. It is soldered directly to base card and can be replaced. Unplug the base card from the picture tube neck [Caution: never damage the neck of the picture tube. Only slight pressure should be applied], desolder it out and replace it with a similar type.

Picture has way too much green. Can't seem to adjust

Ur video board that connected to the CRT) tv tube with long neck,that board have burn capacitors or something else.U know how to solders?Sometime u get lucky,not burn parts,by taping the board see if it flicker,than it just cold solders,require resoldering.

Green screen

if it is "C514" it is capacitor. maybe the green section from the crt board is dead, try to test the transistor from its circuit or resolder it.
