Sont Projection Tv colors


Your red tube is weak or defective. If weak, gain can be adjusted up on the red tube.(cheapest cost) If red tube circuit is defective that will have to be fixed by a technician.(cost between $100 to $200) If tube is worn out, it will have to be replaced(250 to 500). Any work should be done by a qualified tech. Prices will vary depending on your area.
If set is over 5 years old, I recommend replacement.

Is the picuture tube messed up when you see double people and the color is faded


That usually means your convergence ics are going out. Replacing those will get rid of the double imageing. If the color is faded realy bad that means your tubes are going bad. That repair is pretty costly. Tvs over ten years are usually money pits.

What does it cost to refurb an 8 year old unit that has a "slight color fade". Also is this model a DLP unit that is compatible with the 3D adapter kits? Thanks


First .. this unit is not a Dlp it is a 3 tube projection tv. Depennding of what is causeing the "fade" It could be a simple cleaning of the optics.. lens and mirror..The chances are you might need what is called a "glycol" change. glycol is a fliud that is used on each of the tube .. over time they can become cloudy.... as with anything prices vary with location.. all i can say is our shop genarlly charges around 200 to do a glycol change.

I need a picture tube for my mitsubishi vs-5051 40in projection tv, how much do they generally cost? whats a good website or store in my area of manor texas?


Honestly, sorry to give you the bad news and I'm one for trying to repair then throw out but, buy a new 42" flat panel it will be a lot cheaper. Mitsubishi quite making these size CRT's over 5 years ago and a replacement tube would cost more than buying a new replacement 42" TV.
My thoughts is that this 5051 is over 13 years old.

When tv is switched on the image is very faded and


Sounds like a convergence problem. The color IC's need replacement. The parts aren't expensive but the labor is. Average cost for the repair is in the $250-400 range.

12 yr. old 25" G.E. picture fading


I gotta love it when people make up answers. There is no such thing as a "contrass module". I'm assuming the poster meant "contrast". The trouble is your 12-year-old picture tube. It's gotten weak and isn't getting as bright or sharp as it used to. Picture tube manufacturers estimate the useful life of a tube at about 7 years today. There are adjustments inside that might help some, but you need a new picture tube. It's going to cost a lot more than $60 to $75 for that. You're better off replacing the TV.

17 yr. old 35" RCA loses color intermittently. Picture & sound ok


Three guns Red Blue and Green in the picture tube of an old CRT set. If one of the guns goes out it effects that color. Sounds like one of the guns inside of the tube is going out, To costly to replace for such an old antilog set that will have to have a convertor box next month anyway.

FADING TO BLUE SCREEN


Sounds like you have a problem with the blue gun in your picture tube or its drive circuit. You might remove the back cover and gently tap on the neck of the picture tube using a plastic screwdriver handle while watching the screen in a mirrow. If the picture flashes back on or on and off then the picture tube is the problem. If this is a projection tv you have three separate tubes : red, green & blue. you'd need to tap the blut one.Gently!!!! Stargazer
