Blown tube? I have an RCA D61W20 61in projection TV. I'm not sure if the tube is blown or it is an easy fix. There is a red shadow and slightly blurry. Didn't know if it was an easy fix or if the tubes needed to be replaced proffesionally?

How do i replace the tube in my projection tv

Good Day, pinky91,
Replacing a tube is easy, remove cabinet front and back, to get to top of crt's & cables, unplug all cables to defective tube, yoke, convergence cables, anode, crt socket.
The biggest concern should be installing the new tube. Ater replacing the tube it must aligned, not easy. It takes an experienced Tech about 2 to 2.5 hours to perform this repair.
Good Luck, big IRISH. P.S. I would recommend to have a professional to perform this.
