Question about Marantz PV-5580W 55 in. Rear Projection Television
I just recently got a used Marantz PV-5580 television. I transported it to my house in a trailer and connected it to the cable, dvd player, and XBox 360. Everything looked an sounded great.
Three days later the color was off. Everything was green (it looked like everything was in nightvision), and no amount of menu options (ie. contrast, tint, etc) changed the color. After opening the television, it appears all three gun heaters are working properly. It appears that the red is not firing properly; however, the menu options and convergence calibration show red when they are selected.
What can I do to fix this problem?
I have the same model however my screen is red w/ green lines. Did you find a fix to the problem?

Convergence is an internal function so you might be lucky.
It sounds a lot like you are missing red due to outboard problems, cables, etc.
I also suggest you find out who actually built that system since I don't think Marantz builds them.
Get the FCC ID number from a label that should be visible somewhere on the back (unless it came from Walmart who buys illegal junk with no ID info) and then go to this website to determine the manufacturer;
It is probably from one of the major companies so finding info after know which company it is will be necessary.
