Sony Trinitron CRT Manufactured 2000 green color

by robinsa927 / March 11, 2013 5:09 PM PDT

Green color on one side. While viewing the left side has a green color that I can't get out. When shots are up close can't notice it as much. Wide shots very noticeable. Is there an easy fix? Anyone know what might be going on? Thank you

The calibration of those was an art. I was not that good at it so I would get it close then take it to a friend that would tune it in for me. There's a reason why CRT faded away. You listed only one.

CRT definitely have some issues but some of these brand new $1000 plus televisions don't last 5 years while these old Sony Trinittron and Wega have picture quality that is awesome.
Thanks for your response but it didn't really help. The set weighs 250 lbs and is big enough that you need a truck and 3 strong people to move it, so I won't be taking it to anyone to fine tune. I'm trying to determine if the problem is major or minor or can it be an adjustment issue. Thanks again.

Then you need service where you are.

If it's worth saving you need to find one of the old TV repair folk. The new ones are often board swappers with a few slightly more adept with the tools of the trade (solder iron, oscilliscope, etc.)

Sorry if my answer was unacceptable but I don't see these in service shops any more.
