This is a set first made in 2002. I have seen a few of them with too much red.
likely what is wrong is the RED SCREEN CONTROL. It is located
behind the front grill assembly at the front of the set. Screws usually
secure it from the back on either side and then it pulls off--held by
Behind it is an inspection plate with several
screws. Behind that is a BLACK block about 3 inches square with six
controls(everything is black) One row of three will be marked
FOCUS--stay away from those. The other row will be marked SCREEN.
a flashlight you will have to look closely at the two rows of
controls--they will have r,g,b marked next to them. (red, green, blue)
If you go to a Black and white program and the background is redish etc--take the set to a unused Video input
and after you locate the RED SCREEN CONTROL turn it slowly (less than
1/8 of a turn) to the left---the idea is to adjust just until the
screen does not show red---on a blank input it should be black.
Double check it on a Black and White program and then if it was the problem the color should now be normal.
sets did have some problems with that Screen /Focus block going
bad--the entire block costs under 25 dollars and all the wires on the
back of it plug in; if you have to keep adjusting it over a short
period of time replace it or live with it.
