Question about GE D52GW12 52" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
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
