Question about Televison & Video
SOURCE: I have a 60
You have one of two problems based on your description.
1.) Go to a channel that is in black and white and turn the color on the set all the way off.
Examine the screen and picture from several feet back----if the picture is mostly red and looks somewhat yellow in the main part of the screen you have a GLYCOL problem.
These sets have on each picture tube a sealed unit full of Glycol to cool the face of each tube (set has a red, green, blue picture tube)
If you find the yellow/orange look with the color off you most likely have bad Glycol in the blue picture tube---it never happens to the red--bacteria gets into the glycol and eventually there is no picture coming from (in most cases) the blue tube.
Loss of blue will leave you with Red and Green--mix those two and you usually get a orange/red affect.
There is a way to also confirm this with your eyes--it involves getting the back cover off of the set and holding a small mirror (with the set turned on--you have to be careful not to touch anything)
If you look in each lens you should see a fine picture--one red, one green and one blue--if as I suspect the blue tube is contaminated it will not have a picture and will look like a blue floodlight.
IF THIS IS NOT YOUR PROBLEM--GO into the customer menu and select convergence--what you are looking for is will red and blue adjust or not--are they skewed and will not move.
If this is the case you have a convergence problem--I can tell you what is involved to fix in either case.

You have a high voltage regulation problem. Most often this is caused by a failing FBT (fly back transformer).
