My tv has a red tint to it not sure what to do?


Projection tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around video.

Pic of a set that needs the fluid changed. Notice how dull the colors are and how white the screen looks. The screen may also look red, orange, dull, etc.

Set after fluid change. Notice how bright the colors are now. Everthing looks crisp and sharp again.

My father-in-law has a 15 year old 52 inch projection TV. Worked fine yesterday, when he turned it on today it wouldn't come on. I noticed the light on the power button flickers when pressed, instead of...


Its worth replacing if the image is still bright and clear when last seen it will definitely be cheaper than buying a new one, but if the picture is kind of dull then definitely get a new one other wise u will fix one thing and by the next 3 months or so u would have another problem

Convergence and lamp problems?


Well I hate to be the bearer of bad news but besides the convergence issues you have a bad red picture tube. Us techs refer to your problem as a 'floating grid' in the red picture tube. More bad news is that the tube is no longer availible. The only solution is to have a professional remove the red tube assembly and ship it off for rebuild. A company called Video Display does this work reasonably and I've sent several to them with great results. It takes about three weeks and the whole repair is very spendy, around $400 to $500. Sorry for the bad news.
