There are 3 color cathode in your TV red,green,blue cathode.The blue cathode might not working in your set that is why you have a yellow screen.Open the back cover of your TV you can immediately see the 3 cathode lamp at the back.Power up you tv and see whether tha 3 lamps are lit.If one lamp do not light up,check the circuit board where this lamp is connected resolder all the components in this lamp.there is also an individual screen adjustment fo r the lamps it is located at the front pannel and labeled RGB screen...try this frist and let me know how it goes..

    hello sir I think you did not read my solution .The problem of your TV is just adjusting the brightness of the 3 cathode there is an adjustment at the front panel you need to adjust it manually.the adjustment for the screen brightness of each 3 colors are labeled red,green and blue .to adjust this screen you must have a still image on the screen or a color bar so that you can mix the 3 color perfectly.
    heres the steps,

    turn the green cathode adjustment clockwise your screen must look greenish.
    reduce the green adjust ment by turning it counter clockwise..
    do the same to the two other screen adjust ment..
    now look at the picture notice the white image spot at the screen like a white coat or a clouds.this image must appear totally white
    adjust the 3 screen adjustment mix then until the clouds or a coat appear perfectly white.

    now your done adjusting...good luck!

    that is another set of adjustment sir a convergence adjustment.try using the auto convergence adjustment on your remote.If auto adjustment did not work you can do manual adjustment...I'll give you the steps on manual adjustment for the meantime try first the auto convergence..

    does the pincushion adjustment of your TV is functioning?is the picture appear to be like an hour glass?if yes, locate the convergence ICs which will be large black ICs attacked to a heatsink. Try resoldering the pins on these ICs first. If that does not resolve the problem, replace the ICs. These should be marked STKxxx.if you do not have any knowledge in electronics repair .I would advice to ask a techncian to do the job for you because this is not a DIY issue.

Our tv just started having a fuzzy image and the auto focus function aborts during the red color alignment. is there a manual alignment I can do to fix it.

What does this fuzzy image look like? Does it have ghosting shadows. Of course it is possible to align red manually from the convergence menu. But first lets confirm that it is indeed a convergence related problem.

Thank you for using Fixya. Does the yellow and white cord have a round end with a metal tip on the middle? If it does that is the RCA cable, and it is meant for the Audio and Video inputs of the TV. If it is not round, please let us know the exact model of the camera so that we will be able to find out how the cables should be connected.

With regard to the camera being connected to your computer,, generally what camera uses is a USB cable.
