When the tv first comes on it has alot of static in picture, it clears up after a few minutes. The picture was red tinted and had a wave through the bottom of the screen. I replaced the convergence chips, the wave is gone. The picture is still red tinted and kinda dull, will not adjust. When I turn up the contrast or color tint it shows a green spot on the bottom right side of the screen like the green lamp is only projecting in that spot. Thanks in advance

Re: Red tinted picture
How old is your TV?
It looks like it could be CRT coolant is not clean, after a period of time this coolant inside the CRT creates fungus inside affecting the quality of the picture and colors as well.

This can be caused by a few things. The red crt/picture tube is going bad, which it would have to be replaced, tube can cost anywhere around $195 and up, if it is available. Another problem can be a bad transistor or IC on the red crt circuit board. Either way it should be taken to a repair shop. The average cost for repair could be over $300.
my mitsubishi 73" set is 4+ years old. all of a sudden the color is all wrong. after a couple of minutes of clear picture the colors change--blue is green and red is yellow. a little while later everything has a red tint to it and there is a line going down the center of the screen. to the left the picture is still relatively sharp, but the right hand side is terrible. I'm hoping this is just the lamp.
yOUR CRTS ARE SHOWING THE SIGHNS OF WEAR. ON THE FRONT OF THE SET BEHIND THE SPEAKER GRILL OR FRONT FACIAL. THERE ARE 6 CONTROLS 3 FOR SCREEN RED GREEN AND BLUE AND 3 FOR FOCUS RED GREEN AND BLUE. YOU CAN TRY TURNING THE RED SCREEN DRIVE CONTRIL COUNTER CLOCK WISE. JUST A VERY LITTLE BIT.

Try resetting the TV by unplugging from wall outlet for 3 to5 minutes then plug back in. If no fixya take front grill off and panel and adjust the screen controls, turn color off adjust for Black & White Picture. Good Luck, big IRISH.
What is the make and model of your television.. green tint and vertical lines indicat a problem with the light engine..although the clear menu says otherwise..im not sure what type tv you have. lcd plasma change the light im guessing you mean bulb .. this indicates to me you have a dlp. but green tint to me indicates a tube projection type tv... so im just guessing hear. vertical lines also indicate a bad buffer board on a plasma or lcd. so let me know what you have
What you may have needed to do was adjust the
green & blue crt screens to match the red.
Go into your picture menu adjust, turn color
all the way down to a black & white px. Now
adjust each crt screen so that you end up with
a true black & white px. Then adjust each
focus control to get a sharp px, have your
tv on a channel like the home shopping
network so you can adjust each crt focus
one at a time for clarity by cover the other
2 up. Then go back into picure adjust & turn color ahlf way up, you should see a better
