alot of red in the picture

yes I just bought a used 41 inch zenith tv and the picture has alot of red in it and adjusting the controls doesnt seem to help, can you tell me what might be happening, also the tv didnt have a remote control with it and the model number I cant find I think the tag on the back is gone is there any way of finding a model number of this tv so I can try to find a remote for it. I was told the tv was 8 years old so around a 1994 model. thank you

Thumbs up

Good Morning, skyrider:

I sounds like you bought the proverbial "pig in a poke" on this one. If you open up the set, usually you will find an identical tag inside giving you the model number, etc. That would be very helpful.

If red is the predominant color on the screen, this can often be corrected by an adjustment of the G2 voltages on the projection tubes. At the age of the set, it appears that the blue and green tubes are getting a little weak. Not uncommon in this set.

But, be advised that these sets only have an average life span of 9-10 years and then they become very labor intensive and expensive to maintain. Don't expect miracles with this set.

If you need a remote control, you can find one here:

If you want to get inside and fiddle around with the adjustments, I recommend a service manual be available. You can get this
