Searched here in earnest for help but couldnt find any, so forgive me if i am retreading here.

Problem is, when screen goes to black it is more like a reddish brown than black. It is even noticeable in dark scenes. I have replaced component cables and am still having issue wether i am watching dvd or cable box.

I have also ruled out a bad set if input jacks by trying component input 2.

Could this be a bad CRT gun? If so, ball bark on having a repair tech replace it? Is it a possible DIY for a moderately skilled amatuer?

Thanks in advance, I have never been let down on AVS before. I can post a pic later if that helps.

You may just need a calibration. A quick grayscale test- go into the user menu and turn the color level to zero. You should see only black & white & shades of gray. If some shades appear reddish, bluish, or greenish, then you need adjustment. Grayscale can be done by eye to about 90% accuracy, but special equipment and a professional are recommended.


You should call a local repair company out for a cleaning, eyeball grayscale, and full convergence for around $200 (it's worth it). Or you can do some research and try it yourself.
