TV Advice

We have an RCA 1985 ColorTrax 2000 Console TV. It was given to me FREE by a Gentleman who repairs TVs. I had it worked on a couple of months ago for a minor issue.

We have noticed as of late when we first power the TV Set on that we get a picture that starts out Dark then brightens up. Then the TV goes from a Brownish Green to a Real Dark Bright Green on the Picture Tube. Then the Picture displays 100% Normal. The colors after the initial warm up look really good yet. No Color Bleeds, or green tint etc in the picture. Also, still has a nice Bright Picture.

This has the Chasis 131A in it. The Model# is GLR2538P. CRT is the A63ABP12X.

The tube is getting tired and the guns don't track evenly when it's cold, Pretty common issue actually.

I have a couple 13" Color Traks from the same era and they do the same thing.

I had a hard time rejuvenating an 80's inline gun CRT with my B&K 470. It was an '84 Colortrak 25".
Want to find a Zenith Space Command 400 or 600 Color set and RCA CTC-21/30.
