    I have an RCA tv that is sick.It will be ok for a few minutes
    then,suddenly it will switch back and forth between the correct screen
    to a screen with a total blue tint to it.Is that the color tube going
    out,or something else?

    Donnie B:
    Possibly either answer..... without a tech actually doing some hands on
    educated guessing and testing with test equipment there is no way to answer
    your question.
    At the very least you should TAKE it to a service shop for a repair cost
    estimate so you can make an intelligent repair decision with facts instead
    of internet or telephone wild guesses.

    Maybe, but you really need someone to have a look at it and take some
    measurments.
     
  4. It may be the picture tube but that kind of problem can often be remedies
    at little cost. So, do have it checked out.
