This tv is a CRT projection one - it uses 3 small tubes, not a DMD chip and a color wheel. Please ignore the previous answerer, it has given you a bad reply.
You are seeing that because the red and blue tubes are underpowered - either because :
1 - most likely the tubes have aged a little prematurely and the control chip can't no longer compensate - in that case you must replace the tubes
2 - the polarisations of those tubes are off - some transistors from the final video board are off and they must be readjusted or replaced.
In both cases this is a job for a repair shop and it will be expensive - actually, if it's the first case, it will cost you $350 just the replacement tubes . Add $150 for the labor and it will be more economic to buy a new tv.

This is most likely a color wheel going bad you will want to contact a television repair tech and see if they can order you the part and install it if your not tech savvy its usually not very expensive and if everything else is good I would suggest it

Philips 23PF9966/37 color problem!


Most likely you can adjust it in the Service Alignment Mode (SAM).

Press 062596 followed by the STATUS button (upper left). Navigate to "White Tone", press the right key to enter and select "Normal" mode. Set the colors:

Red = 135, Green = 128, Blue = 133.

The "Cool" and "Warm" menus are deltas from the "Normal" settings:

COOL: R -3, G -1, B 5
WARM: R 2, G -3, B -13

Press the "MENU" button to return to the main menu, then the "Power" button to turn the TV off.

Color has strong green tint - can't adjust with set-up program


One color plug in the back was unplugged - Since the TV had not moved we didn't think to look for that. The cable bundle must have been bumped causing the problem - I feel a bit silly that I hadn't looked for that. Thanks for your follow-up.

My screen turns green and then turns off


you need to adjust the screen voltage. behind the front grille and inside cover. a small black box 6 adjusters protruding from it. only adjust the the color counterclockwise that matches the problem in this case it's the green so look for the knob with "G" marked by it. there are 2 with "g" marked by them the row across the top of the box are for focus don't adjust. back the knob off untill the raster is blank with your input set to an inactive input, the picture should be blank and black.
when it is you have the adjuster close to where it should be, now change the input to an active signal and turn the color off so that you wil have black and white picture. adjust that knob untill you do have a truely black and white picture not too green or red or blue. go back to inactive video input and check that there are no lines of any color on the screen. repeat if needed. always adjust these knobs slowly the set will be watching you ! if your autofocus won't work now you have the adjustment set too low. check this function before putting back together again. these adjustments can be real touchy so be patient

Problem with rca hd52w58 52" tv


This can be a green crt or green driver pcb problem. You can try and unplug the tv for 30 min. and plug it back in and turn it on, but the problem will most likly still be there. A repair shop will need to fix it from there.

Bad color


Turn the color level all the way down and see if you have a good black and white picture. If your screen isnt black and white it should have a predominate tint to it. then turn the screen control for that color down to achieve the best black and white picture. then adjust your color level that should help.

Too much green color


Problem solved. I tried playing DVD and the TV picture was fine. So I double-checked cable wires from cable box - one of the wires was loose (obviously it was the red color input). After tightening, the TV picture is good as new.
