    the red is overpowering all colors i tried adjusting the color but its just not working. Also the power button and all other controls like volume, channel. do other stuff like vol turns tv off and on then, channel goes to menu. Ive taken the time to clean it out all the way no dust at all but i just need to figure out what i have to do to fix the red problem. I am somewhat mechanically inclined but this i think is in my range if someone could tell me what to look for or how to fix the problem. please please let me know i could follow instructions step by step to diagnose the problem. i am just a college student trying to make my living room just a little better thank you for reading and your help. E-mail me at my name Eric Thanks again.

Your Red CRT may be on its way out. Try turning down the G2 screen control on the red CRT just a little. That should help for now. A new red tube wil be a reality in the future.

Tv has a red tint

the most common cause would be the CRT coolant need replacement in the green and blue CRTs which make the red dominate. Replacing the coolant is the number one cure for that problem. Do not try adjusting the screens as that will only lead to more problems with a phillips. CRT coolant is all thats required.

Why does the tv look have a red tint all the time

The CRT coolant is needing replacement in the blue and green CRTs which make the red dominate. You can see the coolant is bad by looking in all three lenses you will see that the red is clear and bright where as the blue and green will be hard to see through which makes the colors dim. Replace the coolant should solve the issue. You can get the Phillips CRT coolant kit from which contains the coolant for all three CRTs and the CD with instructions.

Red tint in picture whats wrong how can i fix

These sets are known for bad coolant. Between the picture tube and projection lens there is a layer of coolant that breaks down over time causing the picture to loose its sharpness and for one or more of the three colors to have a bad "tint". This can be a very tricky repair involving removal of the picture tubes and lenses. Best to have a repair shop check it out for you. Thanks for using fixya.

Has bad color,no greens and red tint.

Change the coolant in the CRTs. The blue and green get contaminated and cause the red to become dominate. You can verify this by looking into the lenses of the CRts with a flashlight and you will notice what looks like bacteria in the lenses indicating that the Coolant needs replacement. You can then get the CRT coolant kit at which has the coolant and the CD with instructions for Phillips Tvs.

I have a phillips projection 50 inch television that I want to buy. There is no remote with it except a universal remaote. There is red tint to the picture. If i hook it up at home to cable will the red...

No the red tint is either the red crt needs to be turned down or the red crt is developing a short. But hooking cable to it is not going to help, Unless the TV is really cheap, be careful as a new CRT will cost in excess of 300.00 and will have to be installed and properly aligned.

Convergence ICs or the resistors powering them are bad. Check for open resistors near the ICs if any are open, change both ICs and the resistors.
