Question about Hitachi 57F500 57" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
Television is 5 years old. The picture is dominated by red and blue there are no flesh tones or greens
Your unit uses a Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) for each color.
Since you didn't say that it was a gradual change, I suspect the CRT filament has failed open rather than a slow death of internal emissions.
Considering the very high level of light asked of these CRTs, I am amazed they last as long as they do.
The replacement and almost certain necessity of initial alignment and color balance, this is beyond DIY possibility and is likely going to be fairly expensive.
After 5 years of use, the other CRTs are somewhat (if not a lot) degraded so don't be surprised when a tech advises replacing them all and I think it may not be a whole lot less expensive than replacing the set although looking at the specs for that set indicates it is not obsolete by any means.
