Our t.v. is kinda old and the color is very red. We've tried to adjust the color but that does not solve the problem. My husband has also tried the converge red/blue thing but that does not work either. Please help....

Re: Too much red.
It may be this common problem of older sets like yours the green and blue crt's may have a haze in the crt faces growing. I think if I remember right and this sounds like a lie but air has entered into the cooling fluid and bacteria or mold is growing and cover the crt faces look directly down into the crt's and see if there is a haze in them. If so you must change the cooling fluid this is a job not for the novice after changing the fliud and remounting the tubes a total reconvergence must be done and DO NOT SPILL any fliud onto ANY CIRCUIT board it will cause TROUBLE BEYOND BELIEF.

According to the manual:
1) go to the "TV Main Menu"
2) Select "Screen"
3) Select Adjust Projection TV (obviously only if a projection TV).
This then allows you to adjust the TV's 3-colors. Selecting GREEN CENTERING brings up a control panel that lets you center the green projection tube on the screen. Selecting RED CONVERGENCE or BLUE CONVERGENCE lets you align the Red & Blue projector tubes. Centre the green projector tube 1st. Then adjust the red & blue until the test pattern on the TV screen appers white.
Adjusting the picture tubes is a scary proposition, but since you have already done it...
The easiest way to balance the gray scale is to turn the color all the way down on the set. The next part is easier with two people if the screen controls are on the back of the set. This is the part you saw that has six small knobs on it. There are control for the focus of the red, gree and blue and for the screen level of the red, green and blue. You will want to adjust the screen controls in an effort to get the picture black and white (this is why you turn the color down), hence the term "gray scale". Just make slight adjustments, take your and be patient. It will take some time, but you will get your picture balanced back out in time.
It is an adjustment, but it's an adjustment you may not want to do. It's the red screen control. It's located behind the front panel so the entire front panel has to be removed in order to access it-which will expose you to hazardous voltages. if you like, I can post detailed instructions on how to get that front panel off, it's kinda tricky.
