Projection TV - lots of red

I have a Pioneer 50 projection tv, approximately 14 years old. The picture is showing lots of red/pink colors with very little other color. Any idea what could be the problem?

That's what my Sony picture tube (CRT) did. If your Pioneer is a projected CRT image, then your CRT is wasted. Now you have an opportunity to upgrade to a set with 720P or 1080I resolution. Make that jump to HD. Now's the time.

You are lucky, in dog years your TV is nearly 100 years old. It should have died on you long ago. Pony up and but a new 4" B&W portable battery powered TV, you will appreciate the convenience and if you hold it close enough (about 6 inches from your face) it will look like a big screen projection TV.

Enjoy

JUNK THAT OLD TV, a brand new Magnavox 51" 1080i hi def with built-in stand, wheels etc at Circuit City or Walmarts runs less than 1000 dollars, and includes a free full yr in-home service guarantee by Magnavox.

Most sets over 4 yrs old are not worth fixing

yep...you can get a nice 50 or 55" HD CRT/RPTV set for under 1000.00 nowadays. Time to upgrade.

I have an old Magnavox television Model number RL 8510 AK07 Chassis Model number PTV375 AM01. I was watching it the other day and all of a sudden I got a red screen. Now after watching the TV for about 30 min, it goes from being red to blank. Does anybody know what could be the problem.

14 year old CRT??

Whoah......In car years, that would be like and old Desoto.

Time to uprgrade to HDTV if you ask me:-)

An old TV like that isnt worth spending money to repair. Tvs have come a very....very...long way in the past 14 years. I recently retired a 10 year old Toshiba, and in hindsight.........I should have done it a lot sooner.

I have an old mitsubishi vs-410r rear projection tv and it works great except the there is just a little to much red. I can only notice it when they are things on screen that should be white, but they appear pinkish. also the edges are a bit blurry...i know i should just get a new ste but i really am broke and would like to keep this one for now. Any help??

In old RP CRT sets you can usually get at the red, green and blue drive adjustments. It may be that one of the other CRTs or both are weak rather than the red getting stronger. If you can get at these adjustments, mark their current positions, and try moving the potentiometer a 1/4 turn both ways and then back to the original position on red green and blue drives. See if the picture is better. Often the adjusters become slightly tarnished and this will clean them

Where would those be located, in the back of the tv?? Ive fooled with the little knobs on the front, but i haven't taken the back off the tv yet. im assuming thats how Ill have to make further adjustments??

Absolutely!
The convergence is out of adjustment from move, most likely.

There should be a panel somewhere with a bunch of nobs that will control the various convergance functions. Don Williams needs a convergance fix.
Jay, you probably have a different issue. Not sure if your model is the kind with the Ethelene glycol coolant, but if it is, it needs cleaning. Kind of a pain in the a$$.

We have an 11 1/2 yr old Toshiba TP55C80 Projection TV. 2 1/2 yrs ago we had the color convergence- blue replaced, both sides. It was aprox $450. A few days ago the TV went bonkers again. The picture is slightly blurry, and when any writing or the guide to our satellite channels is on the screen the sides and top shrink in kind of like a square with inverted/rounded middle sections. We have tried to adjust it by switching the 'test' button on and then turning the 4 controls governing the Red and Blue Vertical/Horitzontal. None of the buttons do a thing. The lines do not match on the screen in the test mode.
Any suggestions??
We have been shopping for a new set but actually,.... we are NOT fans of the 16:9 screens!Haven't seen one yet that looks proportioned correctly!
Thank you for your input!

Sheriann,

I replaced my trusty old 4:3 bigscreen tv recently, and was also not a fan of the widescreen format. Once you make the HD change, switch to 16:9 format, and start watching primetime programming, sports, and other various events on your new TV, you'll be scratching your head and wondering......"What was I thinking??"

Your old TV is like the "Fred Flintstone-mobile", and the new TVs are like a new 2005 Corvette. There is no comparision in any way, shape, or form. Not even remotely.....

We gave our (still working)10yr old 48" Toshiba bigscreen away.

If you buy a 4:3 TV, you'll be buying into what will be an obsolete format during the early life of that tv.
