Turned TV on and had a green tint to it with green lines, this lasted about 3 hours, while watching it the color returns to normal for about 10 seconds then went to a solid green then black, the picture returned 5 seconds later with the background colors red. There has not been any changes since, I went into the menu and adjusted the color to reduce the redness but still has a pink haze. This tv is about 7years old, is it still salvageable?

It sounds like the set has become magnetized. It could possibly be from an external speaker magnet or some other magnetic field (ie. a vacuum motor). It could also be a malfunction in the built in demagnetizer circuit. Color picture tubes are very sensitive to magnetism. Because of this there is a built in demagnetizer circuit. If this circuit malfunctions it can cause the same problem. Turn the set off and unplug it for 30 minutes or so. This will allow the circuit to cool off and reset. Turn the set back on and see if it returns to normal. Also, dropping the set or a heavy jar can warp the shadow mask inside the tube causing the same problem. If the unplugging method does not work, have a shop check it for you. Thanks for using fixya.
the problem is at the crt base .there r three red,blue n green o/put.verify if there is dry in the soldering n check the red cathode voltage it must b around 150 .if not then check the resistor that feeds the red o/put.it could b 12 to 15k.
all crt have 3 driver color red blue n green,whenever one driver not working the color changes.that wat happened to ur tv
now i do not know wat model u have.the drivers may b transistors or now its ic that r being used like tda 6103q.best of luck
you have a shorted green CRT that is affecting the other crts the short is internat to the crt that leaves what is called retrace lines. if the set is more than three years old then replace all three guns.
Turn down your color and see if the screen has a normal black & white screen. If it doesn't then the CRT is bad (picture tube). If it is black & White then you have a either lost your red or blue.That problem will be in your video driver circuit of which a service center can handle.
I would check the green signal all the wat to the display screen to determine is this is a signal problem or a system short. I would recommend that you take this set to a qualified electronics technician
