6yr old samsung pcj534rf rptv. the color will be tinted red and than usually correct itself. just started but i assume it will only get worse. does the red tint mean the red bulb is too bright or the blue/green are too dim? or something completely different? any ideas?

RE: red tint comes and goes

aha! i decided to check the RGB cables from my outboard HD tuner and i can get the color to flicker if i plug/unplug the video cables. i reset the video cables and now the picture seems ok. my daughter plugged in her xbox last nite to the front a/v jacks and she said the color was still off. using those connectors should bypass the tuner so maybe i still have an issue? i will keep looking into it.
