Hi.....yesterday the color on my TV changed to yellow, brown and blue (with black and white too) I tried recycling and changed the convergence back to factory default - nothing worked. I called a service company and they said I would have to buy 3 color tubes @ $222. each plus a $250. service charge...so, over $900 to fix. What do you think.....should I just buy a new T.V or do you have some less expensive advice.....thanks....
I read for hours, all of the questions and answers everyone had submitted and finally I found an answer where someone suggested checking the video connections. Sure enough the red cable connection was not pushed all the way in. I did some fine tuning and the picture is back to normal.....beautiful......I'm so happy....thanks to whoever wrote that suggestion......

Follow the color code green for green, red for red, blue for blue, ignore the yellow wire, also be aware that there is an audio cable that is red also that wire goes into the Right channel audio and the white wire goes to the Left channel audio
its sounds like the convergence on your TV needs to be adjusted. (this adjusts all of the color guns in the back of the tv to line them up again, when they get off, you start to get yellow blue or red halos around objects in the picture. In the setup menu on your TV under picture or Display there will be an item that says "convergence" follow the instructions in there so all the crosses on the screen no longer have colored halos anymore.
Enter Service mode.. Press Menu -0-1-5-7 in quick succession . From there select the convergence option. You should see 3 crosshairs -Red, Blue and Green. Green is fixed but Red and blue can be moved. Align both of them with green and see if the issue resolves. If not Try moving them around and see if the problem is cleared. If not you may have the inevitable convegence IC problem and the IC needs to be replaced. Let me know if that is the case and I will give you the procedure.
Turn the color level all the way down and see if you have a good black and white picture. If your screen isnt black and white it should have a predominate tint to it. then turn the screen control for that color down to achieve the best black and white picture. then adjust your color level that should help.
