Loss of color after lightning storm

After a flash of lightning last night I lost all red tones on my TV, everything is just blue and green. The power never went out just the color on the TV and I have tried resetting the color on the menu to no avail.
Is there a way to fix this? I have tried using a small magnet on the screen and it does bring back the color to that area but only as long as the magnet is held there.

In tradition televisions, each color has its own gun, convergence and control circuit. One or more of these are most likely bad. Repairs on standard CRT TVs nowadays are usually cost prohibitive.

DVD player not working right


Check your cables between your DVD player and the TV, this play has component video outputs that could possibly cause this issue.

Problems with green convergence


Very common problem John with projection sets. They have High powered audio amps inside the sets to control the red,green, and blue convergence for the color alighnment on the screen. These amps blow out and should be replace all at one time. There are also resistors that can go out at the same time and your gonna have to have these replace also if they have any discoloration to them. This is not a job for the novice to attempt, as there are HI Voltage safety issues involved, and should be done by a trained tech. This repair should run you anywhere from $250.00 all the way up to $400.00 bucks, depending on where you live and who you get to repair the set. It's always better, in my opiniuon to call a factory authourized repair place as they should have all the service data and most parts for your set. Good Luck
