Without knowing the model number, i can only give you some ideas on what to check.

If the tv was working fine, and started experiencing the problem after being moved, check your focus. you may or may not have an electronic focus pot on the rear of the tv, and you should have a manual focus located on the lens assembly, loosen the wingnut and rotate the lens to focus it.

also check the crt coolant level, if it has a bubble in it, it may be causing the red halo effect.

if the red is to the top or side of the characters and not completely surrounding them, it may be a convergence issue, check the manual for convergence procedures, if it does not have them, your best bet would be to take it to a service tech.

Blue shadow around picture. tried digital array blue won't converge. red and green work


Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded over.

Getting red, blue and green halos around images


I had a similar problem with red halos around images on my Hitachi rear projection TV. The problem was that the red convergence chip burned out. I replaced that and that fixed the problem. I found several forum posts on similar symptoms and fixes for Sony rear projection TVs by searching for "Sony rear projection convergence problem." Likely you've already tried the auto-convergence function for your set, if it has that.
