I bought a new tv and the first one I got home had video problems - the picture was cut off a fuzzy, I took that back and got a new one - the picture looks great but sometimes the sound is a little off from the picture. It does it with regular tv, digital tv and occasionally even with a dvd. It seems like the picture is delayed just a little bit.
Is this something I should have them fix while it's under warranty or is it something not fixable....

I do not believe there is any easy fix to this. The problem may be either in the picture tube or the related circuitry. The worst case scenario is the tube itself is failing. However, it could be as simple as a defective connection on the pc board at the tube for example. You may want to get a technician to check it out and get an estimate before you buy a new set. Good luck
Your TVs tuner tuned a little off frequency. It could be as simple as having cable box on where you have good picture but fuzzy sound, use the TVs remote to change the channel and then change it back to proper channel. If that doesn't fix you may have wrong tuning type selected in channel set up menu.
Possible cause of the problrm is bad/poor solder on the grounds for the tuner circuit shield an the bottom (solder side) of the circuit board. Grounds need a wire jumper from point to point. This was a common problem for those sets and ocassionally it would take out the eeprom chip with it. (Various other problems were shrinking picture/fuzzy picture and intermitt. power)
Not really sure how much the tv weighs, but I know it is a bunch. I have 2 of these t.v.s. One I bought at Wal-mart and after about 6 months it started doing this green screen also. I would normally give the side of the tv a good wack and it would go back to normal for awhile. The other tv I bought from my neighbor who was moving for $25. The problem with this one was the "no picture but I have sound". If I wacked this one I could get the picture to come back on for a while, but it would go out again. Well just the other day I took the back off the "no picture" tv and was looking around. I noticed that the circuit board that is attached to the picture tube was loose. I pushed it back down on the tube and put it back together and the picture has been fine since. So I thought I would check the one with "green screen" issues and sure enough that circuit board was loose also. Pushed that one all the way back down and have not had any issues with that tv either. Hopefully that fixed my problem, I guess time will tell. Maybe it will fix yours also.
I too had the same problem where my HT30744 TV would lose its color or picture would get blurry. My mom's HT32744 would have the same problem too. They both are refurbished models bought at Value City Dept store.If I gave the cabinet a good hit it would mostly fix the color, but it could also make the picture go fuzzy too, a clear sign of just a loose connection somewhere. So after my wife telling me she was sick of this almost 2 year problem and she was going to buy a new TV on the weekend, I figured I had nothing to lose. So I took the rear cabinet off, unseated the card mounted on the picture tube, applied a little dielectric grease on the connector on the card and reseated the card, removed, re-greased and reattached the card. I have had no problem with either my or mom's which I did the same to since! This is an easy fix that anyone can do. The hardest part is moving the TV and reassembling the rear cabinet. Do not pull the cabinet back out more than you have to, to ease the reassembly of it.
The TV does not have a reset button. If you have no picture and no sound, there is something wrong with the chassis. In this case the set should be serviced by someone experienced in the RCA CTC203 chassis. If you have no picture but do have sound, then it is possible that the 2 controls in the 2 little holes in the back of the set are not adjusted correctly. This is quite possible since you said you put a screwdriver in there and got a fuzzy picture. The control on the bottom is called "screen" and is the overall brightness of the picture and the control on top is called "focus" and is the sharpness of the picture.
