These sets among other things with age develop bad solder connections: I suspect on the board that plugs onto the end of the picture tube you have some broken solder connections--the red, green, and blue video output circuit is there.
The really hard part with this set is just getting it apart--weighs a ton.
Let me know if I can help (not picking any set that heavy up).
On your remote control, press video, will give you options to adjust, press video until it gives choice of color adjustment, press video agiain for tint, pressing again gives you other picture choices.
This is a problem with the vertical circuit. It can be as simple as poor solder connections at the vertical IC or a defective IC. Look for a small flat IC attached to a heatsink with about 11 pins. It may be marked LA7837 or something similar. Try resoldering the pins first. If that does not resolve the problem, replace the IC. Please note that there are potentially dangerous high voltages present inside the set even when unplugged.
Keep us posted as there may be other components that need to be replaced. If so, the symptoms will change. Report them here and we'll provide additional details.
My cs-35405, only has input 1 and input 2, but has ant. A and ant.B So there are really 4 inputs. The input button on my remote, gives choice of these 4. Any vcr, dvd, cable or cable box, and satellite would be hooked seperatly on these. But to record TV, satellite or cable would need to go to recorder first and then toTV.
What you have described is definitely some form of Electrical Interference. Interference can come from a variety of causes. Is the Cable Inputting the Cable Box close to some High Voltage Electrical Lines? Or Are you located near some Electrical Power Station? Or A Police station, where the Radio Transmitter of the Police Station causing the Interference? As I said, there are a variety of reasons. Also, Try to check if the connector is loose at the rear of the Cable Box, or at the rear of the TV.
You will have to eliminate every possibility reason.
Wish i could help further.
