You need to change the coolant in the CRTs ( picture Tubes) and the set will get its color and clarity back.

Adjusting to the proper color


Tint would be the control that will control the color balance, but this sounds like it may be deeper then that. Turn your color all the way down so that you have a black and whit picture. If the picture is still yellow then you have a problem with the blue picture tube.

Dull picture, whites have halos, need to watch tv thru dvd player


the picture color problem is the coolant in the CRTs. You can get the coolant replacemnt Kit at the following link. The other problem with the Input through DVD sounds like the signal board. You can get the replacement board and the Phillips CRT coolant kit at the following link.

Color & sharpness problem


Sounds like you need Coolant fluid change, this is the fluid under the Lenses. If you have not done this before I suggest that you get some one who is qualified. Because if the coolant leaks and get to the circuit board, there goes your tv. You need new fluid in the 3 CRT's. If you look down with the back off and looking in the lense, you would see contamination in the fluid, this needs to be taken out and cleaned and replaced with new fluid. The fluid can come from places like MCM electronics corp.
