Yes there is one thing you can do. I don't like to give out my tricks but will make an exception this time. You need a magnet from a microwave. They look like a donut and are a half inch thick. Take the magnet up to the effected area of the screen and only the effected area. Start real slow towards this area and get closer until the color is back to normal. It only takes a second to do this so be careful not to get to close to fast.

    It might be the degaussing PTC - this little device has 2 - 3 pins on it, and is soldered to the board (usually near a fuse) inside the set. Sometimes these components don't function correctly for the size of tube used, hence the purity errors. Your tube is not being demagnetised properly by the internal degaussing posistor/PTC - identify its type number (not just circuit reference) and replace this part. It might also pay to have an expert electrically degauss your tube as well.

    I doubt using a magnet near the picture tube would solve the problem in the long term.

How can i change fuse

The problem is most likely it burned out back light. If your screen turns on but you can't ever see anything on it, it is the back light that is not working. You can possibly fix it depending on the exact model, however, it is usually cheaper just to buy a new one.

Have it observed within 24 - 48 hours if they are functioning well and if the funny colored screen is still there within 2 days, contact the company that you have purchased the device and asked them about the warranty policy and have them replaced.

One day i tried to turn my Xbox on but nothing happened, tried unplugging all cables from the console and the wall plugged them in again and still nothing happened. I left it for 30 mins and tried it again...

If the screen goes funny colours and then freezes, then it is the beginning of RROD. You might have to take back to where you bought it. Otherwise if it has been modded, then they will do an X-clamp fix on the GPU (whoever modded it) and you should be fine again. Hope this helps.

Pink colour everywhere

Assuming all power supplies are OK, you most likely have a bad CRT grid, and that respective (red) tube must be replaced. I'm sorry that it went that way, as this repair is not cheap....accordianman
