Frankly with 42 inch sets found for less than the repair cost I'd get a new set. Also since disposal here is 150 bucks I'd buy where they will cart around the old set.

Ill be brief here cause I really need help
in 2004 I purchased this 42" HDTV for about $1700, I won some money at a lottery....
The Original Bulb lasted until 2010 I replaced it
The Next Bulb was replaced in 2013 and now the picture quality is just not right
There is a RED glow through out the picture
If the image has a lot of white, and recently you don't need to see white...there is a yellow Border that comes in about 1.5" from the top, left side, right side and bottom...
In order to get a decent picture brightness is almost maxed out, Contrast is almost non existent....
Is there a fix to this or should I just replace?
